Episode cast overview:
Patrick Star (voice)
Customer (voice)
Mrs. Poppy Puff (voice)


Naughty Nautical Neighbors: In order to get peace and quiet, Squidward plays a cruel joke on SpongeBob and Patrick which makes the two believe they are no longer friends. But the joke backfires on Squidward when SpongeBob and Patrick relentlessly compete with Squidward to be his new "best friend". To get relief, Squidward is forced to reunite the feuding SpongeBob and Patrick. Boating School: It's exam time again at Mrs. Puff's Boating School. SpongeBob, in his never ending quest to pass the boat driving section of the exam, turns to Patrick for help. The two come up with the brilliant idea of planting a walkie-talkie in SpongeBob's head so that Patrick can direct him from afar. All goes well until SpongeBob realizes he may be cheating!

Phenomenal Episode!
26 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These two episodes were the best of Season 1 until Pizza Delivery came along, but these two are still phenomenal.

"Naughty Nautical Neighbors" Squidward causes SpongeBob and Patrick to get angry with each other and quit being friends. When Squidward chokes on a soufflé, Patrick saves him and this results in a hilarious chain of events that result in a happy ending. I also like the quote "My best friend, and my ex-best friend and....rubber bath toys!" When I first saw this episode, I laughed for about 10 minutes at that one. 10/10

"Boating School" Boating is like driving underwater, I guess. SpongeBob has failed his boating test 38 times, so he and Patrick resort to (spoilers) cheating to get SpongeBob to pass. The montage in this episode is brilliant. 10/10 10+10=20 20/2=10
