7 Best Spongebob Moments Ever:
If in fact, the series bids its final farewell, let us look back to some of the best moments in Bikini Bottom with our favorite sponge:
- Patrick: “Because you told me to,” moment was so typical of the starfish. While Spongebob’s motivation was for the pride of Krusty Krab, Patrick’s was well, nothing really.
2. “Sounds like a lot of HOOPLAAAAA!” This episode is going to make you go crazy with 10 minutes of the same scene repeating, it surely is a Spongebob staple.
3. Another Patrick favorite is this episode where the starfish got so frustrated with the fact that he cannot see his forehead.
4. Well, this one’s pretty harsh. Imagine being so ugly, someone can actually die because of it. Yikes! But still, we can’t help but agree that it’s pretty funny.
5. The rules of the language are bent here, thanks to Patrick. But if you’re not so good at starting conversations, maybe you can learn a thing or two from him.
6. Do you know what the word Wumbo means? If not, then watch this episode!
7. Imagine talking to a fast food delivery like this! Oh my god!
