List of episodes

Dumped is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season two. In this episode, SpongeBob is jealous that Gary wants to spend time with Patrick.



SpongeBob introduces Gary to Patrick by playing tag, and they then decide to have a sleep-over together. The next morning, Gary doesn't want to leave Patrick, who concludes that Gary wants to be with him and claims him as his own pet. SpongeBob is heartbroken, and out of jealousy, attempts to find a new pet to show to Gary that he doesn't need him. At first, he gets Rex, a worm, who immediately abandons him and leaves on a bus. Next, he gets Lary, a wild snail who acts viciously hostile toward him.

Later, Patrick and Gary come to SpongeBob's house to do his laundry, and Gary crawls into the washing machine after Patrick's pants. SpongeBob inspects this and realizes that Gary just wanted the cookie in Patrick's pocket. As SpongeBob and Gary, now reunited, go outside for a walk, a heartbroken and defeated Patrick stares after them and shouts, "Gary? I thought what we had was special!".

  • When the camera zooms in on SpongeBob thinking, Patrick is saying "Blah, Blah, Blah" in the background. When the camera zooms out Patrick is speaking normal again, but when SpongeBob leaves Patrick's rock, he says "Blah, Blah, Blah" again.
  • This is the first episode to show Patrick as the main antagonist.
  • SpongeBob, in a throwaway joke, reveals that he has another pet snail, "Jerry", a photo-realistic land snail.
  • This is the tenth episode to have flowers in the title card background.
  • This is the second time Gary the Snail stays with Patrick, the first being Home Sweet Pineapple.
  • The title card resembles "Squid's Day Off" and "Sailor Mouth", but with yellow writing rather than pink.
  • SpongeBob reminds Gary that he took care of him when his eyeballs were sore. Closed captions alternate between "sore" and "tore" in different airings.
  • A smaller version of SpongeBob's wringer can be seen when Patrick is placing his basket of clothes on the table.
  • When the time lapses from night to day right after the "sleepover", a human finger is visible in the water right below the island, this is because the island is in Tom Kenny's pool.
  • In the beginning, SpongeBob is playing tag with Gary. When he runs up his house, an extra window is seen next to the upstairs window.
  • Rex, SpongeBob's pet worm leaves on a bus. In early airings, this bus had obvious jellyfishers on it. By default, that makes this currently the final epsode to feature a bus full of jellyfishers.
  • Lary made an appearance in Lights, Camera, Pants! as Sneaky Hermit's pet.
  • The face SpongeBob makes when he says "Who's a good boy?!" to Rex can be seen on various SpongeBob licensed products, including the newer packages of SpongeBob-shaped Kraft macaroni & cheese. It's accompanied by the slogan, "grin and square it!".


  • When SpongeBob carries Gary away from Patrick, it zooms in on Gary, and his sleeve is green.
