Patrick and Gary are friends and cousins. Also, Gary left SpongeBob on for Patrick in the episode "Dumped," until SpongeBob and Patrick found out it was just because Gary wanted the cookie in his pocket. Patrick also helped SpongeBob find Gary in "Have You Seen This Snail?" Even though their friendship seems nice, Patrick can also be very harmful to Gary. An example is In "Pet Sitter Pat," when he tried to force Gary to take a bath, and tried to dry him with a blow torch. They were both mean to each other in that episode until the end where Gary reads Patrick a bed time story even after all he had done.
