The Two Faces of Squidward

SpongeBob slams Squidward's face with a door, and Squidward becomes handsome.

"The Two Faces of Squidward" contains examples of:

  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: When Squidward initially realizes he's been made handsome, SpongeBob says that he isn't actually handsome... and then continues by saying he's a hunk.
  • Brick Joke: Squidward's handsomeness gives a fish the ability to fly, and while doing so, his untied shoe falls off. Towards the end of the episode, when Squidward becomes even more handsome, that same shoe falls through the roof of the Krusty Krab, prompting SpongeBob to push Squidward out of the way and slam him into a pole, which causes him to lose his handsomeness.

  • Even the Guys Want Him: Squidward when he is handsome.
  • Hit Flash: Several hit flashes appear when SpongeBob hits Squidward with the door to reverse his handsomeness.
  • Injury Bookend: Played with. Squidward gets hit in the face by a door, and the resulting alteration to his bone structure causes him to become ridiculously handsome, so much as to attract copious amounts of attention from both men and women. After becoming overwhelmed with his newfound status, he attempts to become normal again, getting hit in the face with the same door several times again. This just makes him even more beautiful, however, only going back to normal after getting hit in the face with a pole after running to avoid a falling shoe.
  • Overly Long Gag: SpongeBob repeatedly interrupting the doctor when he tries to cut Squidward’s bandages off.

  • Reflective Eyes: Seen on the first female fish who notices Handsome Squidward.
  • You Can Say That Again: SpongeBob utters the line after Patrick says "We're not just neighbors...", and Patrick, as one might expect, follows through.


SpongeBob's holes make music in the wind, attracting jellyfish.

"SpongeHenge" contains examples of:

  • Big "NO!": By SpongeBob when he returns and finds the Krusty Krab buried in the sand during his absence.
  • Catapult to Glory: SpongeBob attempts to get out of his house by catapulting himself out using his underwear. The jellyfish catapult him back.
  • The Face of the Sun: The sun and moon are depicted here with live-action faces.
  • The Man in the Moon: The sun and moon are depicted here with live-action faces.
  • Medium Blending: The sun and moon briefly appear with live-action faces.

  • Time Skip: The final scene skips 3,000 years into the future where alien beings examine the SpongeBob sculptures in Jellyfish Fields.
  • Trivial Title: The title has little-to-no relation with SpongeBob's problem in the episode. It likely refers to the formation of stone SpongeBobs in the climax.

How well does it match the trope?
