- Ass Pull: SpongeBob had a key under the mat the entire time? Well, it clearly was NOT there when SpongeBob was stranded outside and was ONLY shown to joke about SpongeBob's easy pass inside.
- The police officers showing up out of nowhere to arrest SpongeBob for not inviting him to his house also qualifies as such.
- Broken Base: The episode's quality. Some people think it's one of more forgettable pre-movie episodes; no thanks to SpongeBob uncharacteristically bossing everyone around at his party and unnecessary filler, while others find it okay in its own right with some okay jokes.
- Jerkass Woobie: SpongeBob is definitely being bossy in this episode, but it's hard not to feel bad for him as he's eventually thrown out of his own house and arrested for stupid reasons.
