Someone's in the Kitchen with Sandy

Plankton steals Sandy's fur pelt.

This episode contains examples of:

  • Butt-Monkey: Sandy.
  • Downer Ending: Despite defeating Plankton, Sandy gets arrested by the police for indecent exposure because the Bikini Bottomites laughed at her nudity rather than helped her find her stolen fur.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: Sandy is arrested for public nudity, ignoring the fact that Plankton stole her pelt and impersonated her.
  • Advertisement:
  • Hypocrites: The residents harass and torment Sandy for what she is wearing, disregarding that they are wearing the same amount of clothing Sandy has.
  • Naked People Are Funny: Deconstructed. Sandy's nudity leads her to become a laughingstock and also offended by everyone in Bikini Bottom. She even got arrested for it.
  • Overly Long Gag: "Ooooh, try again. Ooooh, try again."
    Plankton: AAAAAARGH!! YOU try it again, I'm makin' my move!
  • Police are Useless: The police were among those who made fun of a furless Sandy, yet in the ending, they arrest her for nudity instead of arresting Plankton.
  • Selective Enforcement: Sandy gets in trouble for "public nudity", whereas Plankton gets off the hook for stealing Sandy's fur.
  • Scenery Censor: Happens with Sandy a couple times despite the fact that she is wearing underwear.
  • Advertisement:
  • Ungrateful Townsfolk: The citizens of Bikini Bottom were horrible to Sandy. Some made fun of her without her pelt while others shame her for it and pelt her with juice boxes. As if that was bad enough, the police arrest her for indecent exposure despite the fact that it was Plankton's fault.

The Inside Job

Plankton tries to launch himself into Mr. Krabs' head, but ends up in SpongeBob's instead.

This episode contains examples of:

  • Electronic Telepathy: Karen provides a special head device that will allow Plankton to read Mr. Krabs' mind and find out the secret formula that way. Plankton also uses it to hook up to SpongeBob's eyes and ears.
  • Temporary Blindness: SpongeBob temporarily goes blind when Plankton hooks up to his eyes.
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: Plankton, using an Electronic Telepathy device, tries to launch himself into Mr. Krabs' head to read his mind and steal the secret formula. When he ends up in SpongeBob instead, he decides to change tactics and get it from SpongeBob.

How well does it match the trope?
