Squidward and Sandy usually do not talk to each other. However, Squidward doesn't seem to mind Sandy and they get along very well. Sandy seems to be more interested in Squidward than he is in her. Most people have seen a ship in Squidward and Sandy, because of the 2nd Movie. This pairing is referred by some fans as "Squandy".
The opinion on each other
Squidward thinks Sandy is the only normal person in his environment. As seen in episode "Squidtastic Voyage" Sandy actually cares about him, and is probably the most worried person about his problem (Squidward has swallowed his clarinet). If there is really anything between them, it would seem that it is Sandy who is more interested in Squidward than vice versa. Sandy is the only person Squidward has no problems with.
