"SquidBob TentaclePants" is an episode from Season 4.
Sandy invents a teleportation machine, which SpongeBob uses to travel directly to the Krusty Krab. Unfortunately, Squidward was at the exact same place where SpongeBob traveled to. SpongeBob and Squidward are mixed up together, with grotesque results. Squidward states that he has a clarinet recital tomorrow night. He begs and pleads with Sandy hoping that Sandy will invent a new experiment to separate them. After the applause from the audience Squidward decides he doesn't want to be defused. Sandy separates them and Squidward gets angry. He starts pressing knobs and buttons on the machine and ends up fusing everyone together. The episode ends when Squidward is asked by a therapist, "What seems to be the problem, Mr. Tentacles?" Squidward then replies, "It all started... When I was born." At which point the camera zooms out to show that everyone from the audience is fused together in a grotesque conglomeration and fell ill.
