  • "Does thou talketh to me?"
  • "Scoff not, young squire. Thou has mistaken me for another. I am Squidly, the king's royal fool. Or at least I was until I royally messed up."
  • "Oweth."
  • "Everyone be-ith a critic."


  • Squidly may be the reason Squidward is such a terrible clarinet player, since Squidly cursed his future descendant, Squidward, tenfold.
  • He is not as hostile towards SpongeBob and Patrick as his descendant is.
