My Leg!

Once Fred's leg heals up, SpongeBob is determined to keep it out of harm's way.

My Leg! contains examples of:

  • Banana Peel: One of the things SpongeBob protects Fred's legs from.
  • Brawn Hilda: Nurse Bazooka, who is a hulking, muscular woman with a voice deeper than most of the other male characters. Fred loves her all the same, though.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The entire episode focuses on Fred, the guy behind the series' "My leg!" Running Gag.
  • Advertisement:
  • Continuity Nod: The first scene of the episode has SpongeBob and Mrs. Puff backing up into a lighthouse during SpongeBob's driving tests, showing Fred's leg being crushed by the lighthouse when it falls over. "Boating School" was the introduction of "My leg!"
  • No OSHA Compliance: Fred works at a sawmill, and actually pushes logs right into the saws with his legs.
    SpongeBob: This is his job?!
  • Ow, My Body Part!: My leg!
  • Railroad Tracks of Doom: Fred tries to get his leg run over by a train.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: Fred's "My leg!" scream is taken Up to Eleven. Everyone screams whenever say some variation of it ("MY LEG!", "HIS LEG!", etc.)
  • The Bus Came Back: The Alaskan Bull Worm makes a brief appearance.
  • Your Television Hates You: When Fred turns on the TV, he somehow sees one of his legs.
    Fred: My LEG?!

Ink Lemonade

Patrick's lemonade stand is unsuccessful until he gets a secret ingredient from Squidward.

Ink Lemonade contains examples of:

  • Body Horror: In order to scare more ink out of Squidward, Patrick rips open his chest and belly to expose his internal organs. Then his intestines start talking
    Patrick's intestines: May I borrow a cup of squid squeezings?
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Squidward squirting ink out of his nose is quite similar to a nosebleed. After the first time, he even has tissues shoved up his nose.

How well does it match the trope?
