Recap / SpongeBob SquarePants S 10 E 4 "Snooze You Lose" / "Krusty Katering"

Go To

Snooze You Lose: Exhausted after three days of insomnia, Squidward falls into a deep sleep the night before an audition for the Bikini Bottom Philharmonic Orchestra, and the next morning SpongeBob and Patrick still can't wake him up, but it doesn't stop them from getting him there anyway.

Krusty Katering: Mr. Krabs and his crew cater a fancy party, but they might be out of depth with their new wealthy customers


Snooze You Lose provides examples of:

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: The clone of Squidward they make becomes a giant and rampages through the town (and manages to play clarinet notes with a building)
  • Brick Joke: The clone of Squidward comes back at the end to play a building in front of an audience.
  • Dreadful Musician: Squidward proves to be an awful musician when SpongeBob and Patrick aren't controlling his body.
  • Gone Horribly Right: SpongeBob tells Squidward that he'll get to sleep by walking. Squidward does just that, and when he does fall asleep, he won't wake up.
  • Medium-Shift Gag: When Squidward plays his clarinet, it cuts to live action footage of birds fleeing in terror, and buildings and icebergs crumbling.
  • Mood Whiplash: Squidward plods into SpongeBob's house with a blank look on his face, in almost a fugue state, which SpongeBob and Patrick are a little disturbed by. Then Squidward falls sound asleep and SpongeBob, breaking his fall, understands the situation and reacts with profound sympathy.

  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The judge at the recital is a fish version of Ludwig Van Beethoven.
  • Sleep Cute: Squidward, Patrick and Gary fall asleep on top of SpongeBob who had shaped himself into a mattress to break Squidward's fall.
  • Special Guest: J. K. Simmons as Maestro Mackerel.
  • Totem Pole Trench: Only the "trench" is another, unconscious person.

Krusty Katering provides examples of:

  • Bratty Half-Pint: The kid who follows Mr. Krabs around, demanding his birthday cake.
  • Dreadful Musician: Squidward's lack of musical talent is shown once again when he tries to join the band performing for the party and the musicians try to get away from him as they play.
  • Food Fight: SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward inadvertently start one at the fancy party.
  • Furry Reminder: Mr. Krabs squeezes ink out of Squidward to make tuxedos for them.

  • Giant Wall of Watery Doom: Happens when a large water bed is popped inside the mansion.
  • Losing Your Head: Patrick gets decapitated by a mob of children (but is still alive) which SpongeBob, Squidward and Mr. Krabs are disturbed by.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Mr. Krabs acts as one at few points, such as taking some fireworks from the boy following him, citing that they're too dangerous for him; and trying to return a box of jewels that SpongeBob took in the mansion.
  • Running Gag: The boy from the birthday party popping out behind Mr. Krabs, demanding his birthday cake.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Squidward vomits when he is forced to watch some kids eat krabby patties that another kid sneezed on.
