Storyline

Procrastination: SpongeBob has an assignment for boating school. He must write an 800 word essay before the next morning. SpongeBob starts to write it, but he gets distracted easily and can't keep his mind on his work. The hours fly by and SpongeBob is exhausted. Delirious, he imagines his pants on the clothes line are talking to him. They mock him for procrastinating and not writing his essay sooner. SpongeBob hallucinates more and we reveal that he was actually dreaming. He has five minutes to write the essay which he does, describing all the things he saw in his crazy dream. I'm with Stupid: When Patrick's parents come over for Starfish Day, Patrick gets upset that they still think he isn't very smart. SpongeBob offers to act stupid next to Patrick in front of Patricks' parents in order to make Patrick look smarter, but their plan backfires when Patrick forgets that SpongeBob is just acting and really does believe Spongebob is stupid. SpongeBob and Patrick compete with each other ... Written by NAS

Great episode
23 December 2007 | by seniorita123See all my reviews

In 'Procrastination' Spongebob has to do an assignment for his boating class but procrastinates as his mind is blank. In 'I'm with Stupid' Patrick is anxious about a visit from his parents and wishes they didn't think he was so stupid. Spongebob offers to make the visit go well by acting so stupid that his parents will think Patrick is smarter.

My favorite of the two is I'm with Stupid as i've seen it an uncountable number of times and it never gets dull. The same lines that i thought were hilarious the first time i saw are still hilarious to me now. As in many of the Spongebob episodes through season 3, there are hilarious one-liners and good natured humor aimed not only at kids but adults as well. Procrastination is not a personal favorite of mine but that doesn't mean it was bad(definitely not!). It was a funny look at Spongebob's personality and it showed how Spongebob had more depth than the average children's show. Plus it was definitely well thought out(not something i can say about the latest crop of lazy writers for Nickelodeon shows).

A great episode.
