Added DiffLines:

* ShaggyDogStory: Turns out, Squidward only read [=SpongeBob=]'s ''work'' diary which became a best seller, and not his personal one.

Added DiffLines:

* AtLeastIAdmitIt: Squidward ''does'' take fault for what he did, even if he doesn't feel sorry. Of course, the residents completely dismiss it.


* {{Hypocrite}}s: Everyone laughs at [=SpongeBob=]'s expense as Squidward reads his diary and his embarrassing secrets, and then became disgusted with Squidward when [=SpongeBob=] runs away crying, but hey, they all knew who they were laughing at in the first place. Made even worse when Squidward points out that Patrick also read the diary, only for Patrick to dismiss him as "[[NeverMyFault blaming everyone else]]".

* NeverMyFault: The Bikini Bottomites call out Squidward for reading the diary, all the while ''completely'' denying that they read the diary too out of their own free will.

They at least subvert this by not reading his real diary.

* AnAesop: Don't take someone's advice too seriously.
* BrokenRecord: "Focus on the road, there is nothing but the road." Repeated ad infinitum.

Added DiffLines:

* SurvivalMantra: Mrs. Puff's advice to [=SpongeBob=] to "Focus on the road, there is nothing but the road" starts out as this, but it quickly changes into a MadnessMantra when he's stuck on saying it.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, be mindful of other people’s belongings.


* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Jerks Have Standards]]: Mr. Krabs was disgusted of Squidward for reading [=SpongeBob=]'s diary to the point of calling it downright low even for him. This moment becomes particularly poignant when you realize that Krabs was NOT among the {{Hypocrite}}s who were laughing at [=SpongeBob's=] secrets.

** Similarly, only Squidward reads [=SpongeBob's=] real diary at the end, so everyone else is able to shame him ''without'' being hypocrites this time.
