* Tropers/KoopaKid17: "All That Glitters" ruined [=SpongeBob=] forever for me. I could go on forever about why I hated this episode from [=SpongeBob's=] {{Wangst}} to him spending half the episode naked (because {{naked people are funny}}? [[SarcasmMode Right]]). Since I can only choose one moment that sutil makes my blood boil to this day, it would be the part where the replacement spatula [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech tells off SpongeBob]] for [[DisproportionateRetribution making it flip Krabby Patties]], hands down. The thing suddenly [[TookALevelInJerkass talks down to SpongeBob]] [[RichBitch because it feels the job is too menial for its status]]. It then [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere runs away when [=SpongeBob=] tries to get it back]], [[KickTheDog though not before continuing to give jab after jab at him]]. Easily a candidate for the most mean-spirited scene in the show's history considering the sacrifice poor [=SpongeBob=] was willing to make for it.

** Kirby0189: "One Coarse Meal" might as well have been called "watch us turn a likable character into TheScrappy". Mr. Krabs abusing Plankton would have been more than enough, but him [[MoralEventHorizon laughing at Plankton's attempted suicide]] (and by the way writers, suicide is never funny) is pretty much the worst moment of this already horrible episode, and a complete bastardization of the [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Mr. Krabs I know]]. I can't even think of any suggestions for how they could have salvaged this. How did this ever get approved to go on air?

Tropers/Kirby0189: Mr. Krabs abusing Plankton would have been more than enough, but him [[MoralEventHorizon laughing at Plankton's attempted suicide]] (and by the way writers, suicide is never funny) is in "One Coarse Meal" was pretty much the worst moment of point in time where I felt that [=SpongeBob's=] SeasonalRot stopped being "[[ToughActToFollow this already horrible episode, is entertaining, but not as good as the pre-movie seasons]]" and devolved into "[[EightDeadlyWords why are all of these once-likable characters such huge and annoying jerks now]]?". It's a MoralEventHorizon crossing that is a complete bastardization of the [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Mr. Krabs I know]].know]], plays suicide for laughs (suicide is never funny, writers), and is pretty much the worst moment of an already horrible episode. Even if Mr. Krabs wasn't a KarmaHoudini here, I still would have hated it. I can't even think of any suggestions for how they could have salvaged this. How did this ever get approved to go on air?air? I'm glad that the second movie-onward gave Mr. Krabs CharacterRerailment to make him being a jerk tolerable again, but I can safely say that this one moment turned season 6-8 Mr. Krabs into my most hated character in the show.


* [[Tropers/LinKeuiSwampert Lin Keui Swampert:]] Karate Island. To summarize, [=SpongeBob=] is scammed to believe he's the Karate Master ([[JumpedTheShark hi-ya!]]) He and Sandy travel to Karate Island to get the reward, [=SpongeBob=] being a blatant [[TookALevelInJerkass asshole]] along the way. [=SpongeBob=] beats up a few [[BadBadActing obvious actors]] and is whisked away. Sandy leaves, only to have to rescue [=SpongeBob=]. [[AssholeVictim "Sandy! I need you! I can't handle this myself!"]] Sandy fights a few foes in what was trying to be a {{Homage}} to Bruce Lee-esque action scenes but turns out to just be [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment unnecessary and time consuming]], and eventually defeats the scammer, trying to get [=SpongeBob=] to [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking buy a condo]]. Granted, it gives [=SpongeBob=] a tad of development, but of course [[TooGoodToLast it doesn't last]]. The worst part? In the above mentioned "Best Day Ever" marathon, it's the Number One voted spot, and it's now always played with "Best Day Ever".

** Kishou: To be fair, [=SpongeBob=] was in no way aware of what Patrick was doing to get Black Lemonade. Just that they need more for the growing line of customers. That still doesn't excuse Patrick though, or justify a few laughs I got from the overwhelmingly dark premise. What especially bothered me was that Squidward was brutally abused, and Patrick basically got away with it. Sure, Squidward took over the lemonade business when he realized people liked his ink, but once they found out what they were drinking, they all puked inside his house, [[CallBack just like that one customer did when he tried Patrick's first batch of lemonade]]. Sponge and Pat offer him a cookie, which would have been a PetTheDog moment to end on after he's been terrorized and mistreated all episode... only to reveal the cookies were made from spider eggs. By the same spider that Patrick used to scare Squid earlier, no less. So he squirts ink again, and spiders rush out of his mouth. What the hell were these guys thinking?!


** Izzy1: Another thing about that episode that bothered me was the snail food scene, where [=SpongeBob=] was shown being able to make great-tasting snail food, ended up going nowhere. It could have been expanded so that [=SpongeBob=] actually makes a new business out of it and shuns Mr. Krabs' offering for his job back. But nope, [[StatusQuoIsGod everything HAS to go back to normal by the end]] (admittedly, they probably would have done that even with the snail food business). If they weren't going to expand upon it, why bother to even have it at all?

** ''Tropers/{{ilovededede}}'': As gross as Squidward sneezing ink was, two gross moments that weren't sneezing ink REALLY stood out for me - the first being Patrick ripping a band-aid off his armpit in a grotesque manner, and the other being Patrick ripping open his skin to show Squidward his internal organs (complete with his intestines TALKING). The episode was already a slog enough but those two moments really cinched how bad this episode is, and as someone who thinks the show has drastically improved in the post-sequel era, ESPECIALLY in Season 11, it really is hard to imagine we ended up getting a dud like this...but I guess it's natural in long-running shows like this.

** MrReviser121: Ironically, I hate how this episode has [[KarmaHoudini Mr. Krabs]] treated, of all people. Long story short, he tries to frame [=SpongeBob=] for stealing the secret ingredient to the Krabby Patty Secret Formula and get him arrested, but screws it up by [[WhatAnIdiot pointing at SpongeBob with the bottle of the secret ingredient]] and confesses that he stole it because, well, he's a cheapskate. Krabs gets arrested and the judge sentences him to sell Krabby Patties for free for a whole day, to which Mr. Krabs laments that he couldn't bear to see that. Cut to [=SpongeBob=] giving away free Krabby Patties...while Mr. Krabs is manhandled by two policefish, [[EyeScream by his freakin' eyestalks]], in a chair screaming due to being forced to watch his food being sold for free; And the policefish are laughing at this. Really, writers?! You get Mr. Krabs get punished for being a {{Jerkass}} by having him be [[ColdBloodedTorture psychologically and physically]] [[PoliceBrutality tortured by a pair of sadistic cops?!]] Where's the justice in that?; As much well-deserved and satisfying that punishment was, it still made me feel [[UnintentionallySympathetic bad for that son of a bitch!]]

* Ztyran: The ending of "Gone" was a good example for me. Instead of it being a horrible nightmare or something, it's that everyone, even his friends have spent a week having a holiday called 'No [=SpongeBob=] Day,' doing things like burning him in effigy. Now while I can understand Plankton, Squidward, and Mrs. Puff, the others make no sense. This included Krabs—who makes a fortune off the guy—and his best friends, Sandy and Patrick. And Patrick's excuse that everyone needs time away from [=SpongeBob=]'s laugh is a bit of a lame excuse.
