Did You Know?


There is a deleted scene of Squidward entering the Krusty Krab. During that scene, he spies a bucket of "water." Upon knocking it off the door, Squidward smells the "water" and discovers that it is actually gasoline. A match is dropped and the gas sets on fire. This scene was pulled out for unknown reasons.

Squidward claims that he has never tasted a Krabby Patty. He did, however, eat some Krabby Patties in "Your Shoe's Untied", which aired a year before "Just One Bite". See more »


Squidward Tentacles: SpongeBob, If I were trapped in the bottom of a well for three years, and had nothing to eat but that Krabby Patty, I'd eat my own legs first. And not just the extra ones.
SpongeBob SquarePants: But it's good for you!
Squidward Tentacles: Good for you? That thing is a heart attack on a bun!
SpongeBob SquarePants: No, Squidward. I meant... good for your soul.
[Celestial light shines on SpongeBob, who has wings and a halo]
Squidward Tentacles: Oh, please. I have no soul
[Fire appears behind Squidward, accompanied by sinister laughter]
