Opposite Day (Episode)
|September 11, 1999
Opposite Day is an episode from Season 1.
- Squidward Tentacles
- SpongeBob SquarePants
- Patrick Star
- The Bikini Bottom Realty Employee
- Gary the Snail
Squidward is annoyed by SpongeBob and Patrick and calls "Bikini Bottom Realty" to arrange for his house to be sold, so that he may move out of Bikini Bottom. He is warned that, if his home is surrounded by bad neighbors, the house may not be sold. Squidward is convinced that SpongeBob and Patrick may ruin his chances of selling his house.
So Squidward tells SpongeBob that it is "opposite day" - and that everyone must act differently to how they usually act. SpongeBob believes him and initially plans to crawl into bed all day, but is interrupted by Patrick, who has never heard of the holiday, so he "informs" Patrick, who forces himself to stop breathing, until SpongeBob exclaims "not that opposite!"
SpongeBob then demolishes his house and a shocked Squidward cleans up the debris in order to guarantee that SpongeBob does not look like a bad neighbour. In the meantime, SpongeBob, Patrick and Gary start pretending to be Squidward, as Squidward is acting like SpongeBob, and immediately ruin his chances of getting his house sold. A furious Squidward shows them how much he "hates" (likes) them by attempting to run them over with a bulldozer, and the two run for their lives as SpongeBob asks Patrick if he thinks Squidward likes them too much.
- Squidward rebuilt the pineapple in this episode. However, in Home Sweet Pineapple (Episode), Truth or Square, and Home Sweet Rubble, it is a real pineapple.
- This episode cannot be on October 23rd (Squidward's birthday), because he says that it isn't his birthday.
- The title card is similar to Can you Spare a Dime?
- When they are talking backwards SpongeBob speaks gibberish, but when it is reversed it is:
- SpongeBob: Hey Patrick.
- Patrick: I give up.
- SpongeBob: To get to the opposite side. (Both Laugh)
- This is a reference to the "why did the chicken cross the road" joke, but out of context.
