In the correct version of "Something Smells" that aired on TV, SpongeBob approaches a building and says, "Hi, building!", and the building scoots away because of his bad breath. But on the DVD version, SpongeBob says "I just don't get it!" and Patrick says "I don't either", which is an audio glitch, as the same lines are repeated in the correct context only a few seconds later.
