Big Pink Loser: Patrick feels like he hasn't accomplished anything with his life and he decides to take SpongeBob on as his role model. At first, SpongeBob is flattered, but soon Patrick takes the idea too far and begins to take over SpongeBob's life and identity. SpongeBob tries to snap Patrick out of his obsession and snap him back into being himself. Bubble Buddy: Patrick's out of town and SpongeBob is feeling lonely one day so he blows a bubble to keep him company. As he walks around town talking to his new friend, everyone thinks he's taking this imaginary friend thing too far and needs help. They stage an "intervention" to try to snap him back to reality. When SpongeBob refuses to say his buddy isn't real, his friends decide to pop him with a pin and they discover how wrong they were. Written by NAS
