SpongeBob has a dream where he has to save someone from being tied up on railroad tracks until he sees a fish named Jack M. Crazyfish and they played rock, paper, scissors. SpongeBob won, but Jack M. Crazyfish cheats and they argue. It was a nightmare and SpongeBob loses the battle. His dreams disturb Gary's sleep all night. When SpongeBob goes to his bathroom to brush his teeth, he cannot open his toothpaste, so he uses a wrench to open it. But he accidentally gets the wrench stuck in his eyelid, he gets a hideous black eye from the accident. Whenever people notice SpongeBob's black eye (For example, Sandy, and Patrick), he tells them that he was fighting Jack M. Crazyfish (Who he thought was actually fake), and he got the black eye from doing that. Later, when Jack M. Crazyfish arrives at the Krusty Krab and says he is looking for SpongeBob, the customers tell Crazyfish the story SpongeBob said. SpongeBob was very afraid and wanted to tell him the truth, so he went back home and gets the wrench and the toothpaste. SpongeBob demonstrates it to Jack M. Crazyfish what really happened to him. SpongeBob then got a second black eye. Jack M. Crazyfish tells him that he just came to the Krusty Krab because he has heard that SpongeBob makes great Krabby Patties, and he is hungry for one. SpongeBob then served him delicious Krabby Patties but because he had two black eyes he could not see very well. The patties then went flying to Jack M. Crazyfish. Jack M. Crazyfish gets mad and challenges SpongeBob to a game of rock, paper, and scissors. SpongeBob won the first time but he did not know that Jack M. Crazyfish cheated on him and SpongeBob yells "NO!"

When SpongeBob throws some things on Gary, he throws the shirt with the inscription "I'm with stupid," which is reference to the episode "I'm with Stupid."
SpongeBob's dream of Jack M. Crazyfish is strikingly similar to an archetypical western (the one where the lady is tied to railroad tracks).
In SpongeBob's bathroom, when he turns muscular and tries to open the toothpaste, the bubbles by his hand stop moving for a moment.
While SpongeBob was getting his wrench to pry open his toothpaste, his feet squeaked, despite the fact that he was not wearing his shoes.
The music when SpongeBob tries to open the toothpaste is not the usual Hawaiian guitar, but has a harpsichord, and a bassoon.
In SpongeBob's bathroom, when it shows the toothpaste cap bouncing off everything, one of the things it bounces off of is the wringer, later seen in "Stuck in the Wringer."
In real life, a black eye due to eye injury would have "black" around the eye, not on the eyelids.
Although, they might have done it like this since a circle around the eye might have been hard to see in some cases.
60 feet would be about 4-6 stories high, or the length of a bowling lane.
Manatees make their only appearance in this episode. They act like cattle.
Technically, in a way, there is such thing as a pain gland. They're called nerves.
SpongeBob tells Sandy he got the black eye in a fight with Jack M. Crazyfish (the summary before the story). Then he told the story, but he said that he got the black eye by "miscalculating the trajectory of the cup, and the straw jabbing him in the eye" and that's not from the fight with Crazyfish.
SpongeBob's story changes with each retelling.
It is strange how nobody realized he was lying especially because of the major discontinuity between his stories, one would think at least two people would figure it out, then again maybe none of the characters were anywhere near each other even off screen.
This is the first episode where characters are seen playing Rock, Paper, Scissors. The second is in "Pineapple Fever."
This is the first time Jack M. Crazyfish has appeared in an episode. The second is "20,000 Patties Under the Sea," only to make a cameo appearance with a different voice and similar personality.
This is the third time SpongeBob is shown to be muscular. The first time was in "MuscleBob BuffPants," although the muscles in that episode are inflatable. The second time was in "The Fry Cook Games."
This was Greg Miller's only episode as writer and storyboard director.
In the Welsh dub, this episode is called "Llygad Ddu" which means "Black eye."
Harold says to SpongeBob that sponges don't have eardrums, but in "The Inside Job" SpongeBob has an eardrum.
SpongeBob uses Krust toothpaste that is a parody of the real life toothpaste brand, Crest.
SpongeBob's dream is a reference to an archetypical western (the one where the lady is tied to railroad tracks).
When SpongeBob is talking to Gary and says "No, no, Tuesday night was the one with the 30-foot librarian." one of his white teeth turn yellow for a split-second.
Sandy refers to the Manatees as "Fishies," but in reality, they are mammals.
Patrick should've found out SpongeBob was lying when he said, "I woke up" because that would have meant his story was a dream.
The scene where Jack M. Crazyfish throws a tire at SpongeBob, they are in a sidewalk. Right when Jack M. Crazyfish runs away crying, the sidewalk disappears.
When SpongeBob tells his story to Sandy, in the prologue, SpongeBob does not have a hat on. However, when Jack M. Crazyfish ran all the way home leaving behind a pool of tears, SpongeBob is wearing his Krusty Krab employee hat, but there is no anchor on that hat. When SpongeBob drinks the tears, he does not have a hat on again.
When SpongeBob spilled mustard on Jack M. Crazyfish's shirt, the mustard was still there. After they were playing rock-paper-scissors, the mustard is gone.
When the screen shows a close up of the clam, it says KRYSTY KRAB and not KRUSTY KRAB. This error also occurs in "Grandpappy the Pirate."
When Frankie Billy first appears and Mr. Krabs comments about how late SpongeBob is, he is in his normal color scheme, but when SpongeBob walks past him and Evelyn, Frankie Billy has a different color scheme similar to Ivy.
During the telling of his story in the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob said, "I emerged from my fruit-shaped bungalow fresh as a bee..." but in numerous episodes his house has more than one floor so it cannot be considered a bungalow.
