  • Bait-and-Switch Comment:
    Mr. Krabs: (holding a $10,000,000 bill) Me most valuable possession, (grabs a framed picture of his daughter, Pearl) except, of course, (opens the backside of the picture frame and pulls out a $100,000,000 bill) for you, my love.
  • Eye Scream: SpongeBob juggles hot krabby patties with his eyeballs, only for them to catch on fire. It doesn't help that he tries to soothe it with spicy mustard.

  • Ow, My Body Part!: Parodied.
    Fred: MY LEG! I mean, MY PANTS!
