  • We read your comments, we know your favorites.

  • Now it's time to take a deeper look.

  • This is Nick's Breaking Down the Episode.

  • Today, we're breaking down the SpongeBob episode Band Geeks.

  • With some iconic lines...

  • Is mayonnaise an instrument?

  • And an epic Bubble Bowl performance.

  • There's no questioning why this is a fan favorite episode.

  • Correct!

  • Band Geeks premiered on September 7th, 2001.

  • In this episode, Squidward forms a marching band

  • to impress his nemesis,

  • culminating in the greatest performance Bikini Bottom has ever seen.

  • The episode kicks off with one of the hardest burns

  • in SpongeBob history.

  • Uh, we're with the pet hospital down the street,

  • and I understand you have a dying animal on the premises.

  • Ooh!

  • Squilliam Fancyson gives Squidward a call,

  • marking his first appearance on SpongeBob.

  • I'm the leader of a big, fancy band now,

  • and we're supposed to play the Bubble Bowl next week.

  • The problem is I'm busy next week and can't make it.

  • He puts Squidward into quite the dilemma.

  • I was hoping you and your band could cover for us.

  • Oh, I-- I-- I-- I--

  • I knew it! You don't even have a band!

  • I do have a band, and we're gonna play that Bubble Bowl!

  • With a lie like that,

  • you can just tell this episode is gonna be a classic.

  • After recruiting citizens of Bikini Bottom,

  • the band has their first rehearsal.

  • Hey, you ever notice they sit there and say "blah" to one another?

  • - Blah, blah, blah, blah. - People!

  • People, settle down.

  • Plankton was able to find a triangle the same size as him.

  • Look how cute that thing is.

  • - Do instruments of torture count? - No.

  • During rehearsal, we found out mayonnaise and horse radish

  • are not instruments.

  • Is mayonnaise an instrument?

  • No, Patrick. Mayonnaise is not an instrument.

  • Horse radish is not an instrument either.

  • Fun fact, when Squidward asks the brass section to warm up,

  • Pearl is seen using a saxophone,

  • which is actually a wood-wind instrument.

  • Oops.

  • Good! Now the wind!

  • Is this the part where we start kicking?

  • No, SpongeBob. That's a chorus line.

  • Kicking? I wanna do some kicking.

  • Why, you...

  • Patrick quickly learns kicking Sandy is a bad idea.

  • Whoever's the owner of the white sedan, you left your lights on.

  • Wait, wait, sedan?

  • But don't the citizens of Bikini Bottom drive boats not cars?

  • As Squidward tries to tune up the band...

  • One, two, three, four.

  • An argument breaks out,

  • and tempers flare among the band members.

  • Tensions are high.

  • Some awesome memes came out of this episode.

  • Oh, one being "big meaty claws".

  • If some people didn't try to play with big meaty claws!

  • What did you say, punk?

  • Big meaty claws!

  • Well, these claws aren't just for attracting mates.

  • Bring it on, old man!

  • - This fight escalates real quick. - Settle down, please!

  • Hi-yah!

  • OK, if you look closely during the big fight,

  • SpongeBob is seen fighting with a fake arm!

  • Where did he even get that thing?

  • All the commotion almost causes Squidward to give up on his

  • newly-assembled band.

  • And he hits everyone with the feels.

  • Don't bother showing up tomorrow.

  • Then, SpongeBob steps in with the hype speech of the century!

  • Now let's make Squidward proud.

  • Bubble Bowl?

  • Hey, could this be a reference to another big football game?

  • Squilliam doesn't find out! Squilliam, ah!

  • After bumping into Squilliam Fancyson,

  • and being teased about not having a band...

  • So, where's your band?

  • Squidward gets a big surprise when his trusty crew

  • shows up in full uniform.

  • Ah! That would be my band!

  • Oh, here's where another iconic meme was born.

  • SpongeBob's eager face.

  • The moment is finally here.

  • We all know what's about to happen.

  • To Squidward's surprise,

  • the band pulls off their first performance perfectly,

  • which doesn't sit too well with Squilliam Fancyson.

  • This might be the happiest moment of Squidward's life.

  • And for good reason.

  • Woo! Who else has goose bumps?

  • And how could you not after seeing SpongeBob's most epic performance?

  • Which Nick episode should we break down next?

  • Let us know in the comments below.
