  • A Day in the Limelight: For Bubble Bass, the picky customer from "Pickles". Subverted, as the episode mostly focuses on SpongeBob and Patrick moving his furniture, rather than Bubble Bass himself.

  • Fat Bastard: Bubble Bass.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • The start of the episode reveals that Bubble Bass fantasizes about having his own talk show called Snark Chat with Bubble Bass.

  • Laser-Guided Karma:
    • Bubble Bass promises SpongeBob and Patrick free lunches as rewards for helping him move; Bubble Bass soon fakes breaking his back to make the duo do the heavy lifting for him, and he later eats the lunches he promised them. SpongeBob and Patrick inadvertently destroy several of Bubble Bass' belongings while packing them up, ruins his mother's house, and accidentally pack his mother with his belongings, who then packs him into a box and starts ramming him into stuff as payback for what she had to endure.
    • After Lady Upturn steps on Patrick and leaves her high-heel in his mouth, she is soon flattened by Bubble Bass' furniture, giving Patrick the opportunity to step on her and leave her high-heel in her mouth.
  • Kick the Dog: After risking life and limb to move Bubble Bass' furniture to his grandmother's house, SpongeBob and Patrick find out that the lunches promised to them were eaten by Bubble Bass.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: SpongeBob and Patrick show how moving someone's furniture can become quite an adventure.
  • Oh, Crap!: Many.

    • Lady Upturn, when she realises that Bubble Bass' furniture is about to run her over.
    • Bubble Bass has one when he realises that his mother was part of the furniture that SpongeBob and Patrick packed up.

  • Synchro-Vox: Happens when Patrick threatens Bubble Bass after the latter reveals that he ate the lunches he promised.
    Patrick: If my friend SpongeBob doesn't get his free lunch, (sudden live-action face closeup) THINGS ARE GONNA GET CRAZY.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: While Lady Upturn did show some signs of snobbishness in "Krusty Katering", she was never outright mean. In this episode, she is so full of herself that she refuses to move a few feet in order to let SpongeBob and Patrick pass.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Bubble Bass fakes breaking his back in order to make SpongeBob and Patrick do all the dirty work for him.
