SpongeBob tries to get into the Salty Spittoon - the toughest sailor club in Bikini Bottom. The bouncer, Reg allows Sandy in as she's one of the toughest fighters in Bikini Bottom, but rejects SpongeBob because he is not tough enough. Reg suggests that SpongeBob instead go to one of the nearby Weenie Hut Jr. chains, much to SpongeBob's intense annoyance and humiliation.
The Weenie Hut Jr. patrons suggest ways for SpongeBob to prove his toughness and gain entrance. SpongeBob figures that the quickest way to do so would be to win a fight, but since he is not very strong, he decides to stage a fight with Patrick. The staged fight nearly fails as Patrick begins to legitimately attack SpongeBob, but soon remembers his job and beats himself up. Reg becomes amazed about SpongeBob beating up Patrick without touching him and finally allows him to enter the Salty Spittoon.
SpongeBob runs inside the club. However, he slips on an ice cube and falls, putting him in the hospital. He initially is admitted to Bikini Bottom General Hospital, but while talking to the doctor, he refers to his injuries as "boo-boos." The doctor suggests that SpongeBob be admitted to a hospital named "Weenie Hut General".
In this episode, SpongeBob is depicted as a wimp who is easily injured. However, many episodes, mainly The Bully, depict him being hurt badly, but he does not feel a thing or get injured.
In the Brazilian Portuguese version of the episode, the man that is launched out of the Salty Spittoon shares the same voice with Squidward.
In this episode, SpongeBob realizes the joke about "Sandy" after Sandy kicks him up from sand underneath, but he already knew the joke about "I'm sandy" in "Ripped Pants".
When the tough guy says he ate a bowl of nails for breakfast this morning without milk, it parodies one of Mr. Ratburn's secrets during the Arthur short story "Arthur And The Real Mr. Ratburn", as per Prunella's dialogue to the gang: "He eats nails for breakfast without milk", while Mr. Ratburn is the third-grade schoolteacher.
When a thug says I ate a bowl of nails for breakfast without any milk to Reg, It has become a popular internet meme, with a voice-over replacing a bowl of nail of nails with something else.
Patrick's quote, "Nobody calls me Tubby!", has become a famous Internet meme.
The screenshot when SpongeBob says "I'll have you know I stubed my toe last week while watering my spice garden and I only cried for 20 minutes," became popular on the internet and has been parodied many times.
The opening still, which says No Weenies Allowed, resembles the Oscar Mayer hot dog packaging (Oscar Mayer would use the term wiener when describing its hot dogs in advertisements).
After Sandy flips Reg's tattoo around, it is then flapped back to normal, still reading "WOW". Later, it then says "MOM" again.
Reg states that SpongeBob belongs at Super Weenie Hut Juniors when in fact SpongeBob actually goes to Weenie Hut Juniors.
When Patrick punches SpongeBob in the fake fight, SpongeBob gets a black eye. When he smiles, the black eye goes away.
Every time the geeks, SpongeBob, and Patrick go off screen or go to a close-up, their chairs change color (blue and white are the colors).
When SpongeBob returns to Weenie Hut Jr.'s and has his hands in his sundae, and the robot calls him a "weenie" once again, SpongeBob mouths "weenie" when the Robot says it.
First, Patrick is worried that SpongeBob would enter Salty Spittoon. After the Robot gives a good advice, however, he is then interested to help him.
In real life, you won't get sent to a hospital for younger people if you describe your injuries as "boo-boos".
Before SpongeBob started talking to the nerds, the chair on his right is empty, but when it pans left again not even a minute later, Patrick is in the chair already.
In Bahasa Indonesia version, there's a mistake when nerds talk Patrick about Mega Weenie Monday:
Nerd #2: Actually they moved Double Weenie Wednesday to Friday.
Nerd #3: And besides, today's Sunday.
Patrick: Oh, so it's Mega Weenie Sunday?
Nerd #2: Uhh, that's now on Sunday.
Nerd #3: Super Weenie Hut Jr's has a Mega Weenie Sunday.
Nerd #2: Uhh, no, you're thinking of Monster Weenie Sunday.
