Just One Bite: When SpongeBob learns that Squidward has never actually tried a Krabby Patty, he becomes obsessed with the idea that Squidward must try it. He badgers Squidward until he gives in. When Squidward takes a bite, he pretends to hate the patty, but secretly he loves it. Alone, he craves another bite, but doesn't want SpongeBob to know. In the end, he sneaks into the Krusty Krab late at night, stuffs his face with patties only to be caught in the act by SpongeBob. The Bully: There is a new bully in boating school named Flats who threatens to beat SpongeBob up after school. SpongeBob is terrified and tries to get help, but everyone is under Flats terror hold already. When the moment of truth comes, Flats throws a punch and falls on his face. SpongeBob realizes there was nothing ever to be scared of in the beginning. Written by NAS

Did You Know?


There was a scene where Squidward finds a bucket of water to discover it was actually gasoline. This episode premiered almost one month after 9/11. Maybe due to this scene being shown at the time it first aired. Today, Nickelodeon airs an alternative version which removes the scene. See more »


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 »


Mrs. Poppy Puff: Tell us about yourself, Flatts.
Flatts: Well, I like to kick people's butts.
Mrs. Poppy Puff: [Laughs] What a card.
