"Hey, Patrick! What am I now?"
Original air date: 3/22/2000 (produced in 1999)
When Sandy gets homesick and decides to move back to Texas, SpongeBob and Patrick try everything to keep her from leaving.
The episode begins with SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy playing in the sand at Goo Lagoon. While the dimwitted duo make pretend with sand piles and their hands Sandy makes Texas, which SpongeBob has no knowledge of. Before Sandy can explain what Texas is, the sand is washed away from the tide. She walks off sadly while SpongeBob tries to cheer her up but Sandy reveals shes feeling homesick. SpongeBob and Patrick then blindfold her and take her to her treedome but only make things worse. She begins crying, and runs off. To keep her friends out, she put up the shields to close off. Both SpongeBob and Patrick are confused until they hear Sandy singing a song from on top of her treedome about how shes homesick for Texas (with country singer Junior Browns voice at the end to boot). They decide to cheer up Sandy by throwing a Texas-themed party for her at the Krusty Krab. They rush over to Sandy's house to ask her to come to the Krusty Krab with them, but it looks like theyre too late as shes already on the bus back to Texas. SpongeBob is shocked by this, and tries to convince her to go to the Krusty Krab, but shes made up her mind and leaves. SpongeBob is heartbroken and Patrick wonders out loud "What's so great about dumb ol' Texas?" Suddenly, the bus barrels backwards down the road as Sandy was gravely offended by Patrick's remark. When Patrick then asks if he can say that people from Texas are dumb only makes it worse and gives SpongeBob an idea. He and Patrick continue insulting Texas, and Sandy begins chasing them back to the Krusty Krab. Patrick continuously insults Texas, thinking Sandy is too slow to catch up to them, only to soon realize that she is catching up to them and shes angry. Sandy lassos Patrick and nearly catches SpongeBob as he hangs by a finger to the door handle of the Krusty Krab, ripping it and the rest of the front off. Sandy realizes that Bikini Bottom is her home and shell stay. Everyone (except Squidward) cheers and Patrick asks "Yeah, who needs dumb old Texas?" Sandy gets angry once again, and Patrick asks "Should I start running now?" as the episode ends.

"The stars at night are dull and dim / Whenever they have to be over dumb ol' stupid Texas!"
- Soundtrack Dissonance: The scene where SpongeBob and Patrick are running for their lives as Sandy is running after them, out for their blood, is set to... peppy lap steel music.

SpongeBob and Patrick decide to egg her on in order to lure her down to the Krusty Krab for her surprise party, where she realizes that Bikini Bottom was her home and decides to stay.

Plankton plots to use SpongeBob as an unwitting pawn to drive away the beach patrons so he can build his new Mega Bucket restaurant.
The episode starts with Plankton arriving at Goo Lagoon in his bulldozer to tell everyone to leave as he plans to make it the future site of the "Chum Bucket Mega Bucket. Seeing how hes so small, his efforts are in waste and he needs someone a lot bigger to scare everyone away. Fortunately SpongeBob nearly steps on him and Plankton hatches his plan. Hell make SpongeBob more assertive and force everyone to leave. When SpongeBob loses his chance to get ice cream, he finds Plankton weeping loudly on a bench. Plankton cant eat two ice creams and SpongeBob offers to eat the spare. When SpongeBob is done enjoying his dessert Plankton tells him he can get anything if hes more assertive. His first example is on the guy who stole his ice cream, but SpongeBob is too nice to get it back. Plankton, in SpongeBobs mouth, threatens the eel who runs off crying. SpongeBobs next example is Scooter, but SpongeBob's attempts only make things better for him. Plankton gives up before SpongeBob shows he can be assertive. SpongeBob proceeds to show how assertive he is by acting like a huge jerk, all according to Planktons plan. When SpongeBob scares everyone off Plankton shows his true colors, much to SpongeBobs dismay, and tells him nice guys finish last and only aggressive people conquer the world! But not aggressively nice people, as SpongeBobs generosity brings everyone back. The episode ends with SpongeBob playing volleyball with the other beachgoers, as the ball.
Walking Small shows examples of:
- An Aesop: You should be assertive without acting like a jerk to others.
- And That's Terrible!: "You used me... for land development!That wasn't nice!"
- Be the Ball: SpongeBob makes himself, or is possibly molded into, a volleyball to replace the one he destroyed during his rampage.
- Bottle Episode: The whole episode is set at Goo Lagoon.
- Comically Missing the Point: Plankton berates SpongeBob for not being enough of a stand-up guy. SpongeBob responds by telling a terrible joke about airline food.
- Community-Threatening Construction: Plankton wants to build his new Chum Bucket Mega Bucket on the beach at Goo Lagoon. Subverted in that he's too small to be taken seriously, and his construction equipment is mistaken for toys. So he plans to drive the beachgoers away with SpongeBob's unwitting help. He also gets a full-sized bulldozer.
- The Corrupter: Plankton to SpongeBob.
- Early Installment Weirdness: Plankton's goals in this episode have nothing to do with stealing the Krabby Patty Formula, something that wouldn't happen again for another five seasons.
- Extreme Doormat: SpongeBob is revealed to be this, as Plankton lampshades this.
Plankton: SpongeBob, you'll never get what you want! You'll always let people step all over you! You're just like stairs!
- And ironically enough SpongeBob is pretty much "stepped over" in the ending: one fish uses him as a surfboard, and then pretty much the entire beach turns him into a volleyball. Granted, the fact this is SpongeBob just making up for the damage he caused slightly alleviates the overall softness, but it still confirms that Plankton had a point.
- Eye Scream: When SpongeBob starts stirring up the sands by fanning a towel, one unfortunate onlooker gets a clump of sand thrown into one of his eyes and quickly runs off tearing up.
- A Lesson Learned Too Well: SpongeBob takes Plankton's lessons to heart and becomes a massive jerk to everybody, which was all Plankton's plan.
- Literal-Minded: When Plankton makes SpongeBob confront the eel who took his ice-cream.
Plankton: Tell him off, SpongeBob! Be assertive!
SpongeBob: Hey, that's my ice cream!
Plankton: Great! Now, let him have it!
SpongeBob: You can have it.
- Manipulative Bastard: Plankton for tricking SpongeBob into driving away all the beachgoers.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Realizing that Plankton taught him to be a jerk just to use him for land development, SpongeBob reacts this way.
- Nice Guys Finish Last:
Plankton: Havent you figured it out, SpongeBob? Nice guys finish last. Only aggressive people conquer the world! (laughs evilly)
SpongeBob:Well, what aboutaggressively nice people?
- Preemptive "Shut Up":
Plankton: You've got to be aggressive to get the things you want. You're too soft.
SpongeBob: But I'm a spon...
Plankton: Don't say it!
- Shout-Out: Plankton's "Butterfly kisses!" line appears to be a reference to the Bob Carlisle song of the same name.
- Sympathy for the Devil: At the end, SpongeBob still says he's sorry for Plankton about the Mega Bucket's collapse. Plankton complains he's not so upset about that as much as he is being disgusted by seeing SpongeBob's acts of kindness.
- Teach Him Anger: Plankton teaches SpongeBob to be a jerkass.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: SpongeBob when Plankton teaches him to be aggressive. Of course, this was all Plankton's plan to drive away the beachgoers to build his new restaurant.
- Troubled Fetal Position: Plankton after SpongeBob foils his plan.
- Villain Has a Point: While Plankton really is using SpongeBob as an Unwitting Pawn for his schemes, he nonetheless makes a valid point when he calls him out on being an Extreme Doormat. Also doubles as Hypocrite Has a Point because Plankton himself is exploiting SpongeBob's generosity.
- Wangst: In-Universe. Done intentionally by Plankton to con SpongeBob into joining him by sobbing about having two ice cream cones but only needing one.
Texas is dumb!
Don't you DARE take the name of Texas in vain!

SpongeBob SquarePants: 10 Best Moments Between SpongeBob & Sandy
Fans of SpongeBob SquarePantsare aware of the fact that the show's title character and Patrick have one of the closest bonds in all of television. Yet, that does not mean that SpongeBob does not have other good friends, as he has a spectacular relationship with the city's land squirrel, Sandy. In fact, the two go through a lot over the course of the show's run, and at some points, it seems as though that SpongeBob relates to her better than everyone else.
RELATED: 10 Classic SpongeBob Episodes Every Fan Has Seen
There are an array of great moments with them that really deserve far more attention from fans. In fact, with this show being so old, it is easy for the audience to forget some of the great aspects of their relationship. There is a rather significant change in their dynamic as it progresses, but all in all, there is no question that Sandy is one of the best friends that SpongeBob has in the entire show.
10 They Meet Each Other Because Of A Giant Clam
SpongeBob and Sandy's friendship starts off in a rather peculiar way. That is to be expected with this show, though. While jellyfishing, SpongeBob sees Sandy engaging in a tussle with a giant clam. SpongeBob immediately runs to her when the clam tries to eat her.
SpongeBob jumps on its back and tries to open its jaw, but Sandy is who ends up being successful in this task. After, SpongeBob gets trapped, and Sandy saves him by kicking the clam into the sky. From there, they become great friends and their adventure begins.
9 Their First Hang-Out Is Hard On SpongeBob
After their battle with the giant clam, Sandy invites SpongeBob over to her house. SpongeBob of course accepts, but finds himself in quite the predicament once he comes inside. At this point in the series, he does not understand that Sandy survives on air.
Thus, SpongeBob is in desperate need of water but tries to force himself to stay after Patrick tells him to. Eventually, SpongeBob and Patrick dry out entirely. However, Sandy does save the day once seeing them by giving them water bowls. From there, SpongeBob becomes a regular visitor at Sandy's.
8 SpongeBob Seems To Have Feelings For Sandy (At First)
Although SpongeBob and Sandy now are known just for their great friendship, SpongeBob seems to have a bit of a crush on her at the beginning portions of the series. For example, during the 'Ripped Pants' episode, he becomes sad when Sandy starts spending more time with Larry than him.
RELATED: 10 Things That Make No Sense About The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run
In all fairness, though, she is understandably mad at SpongeBob when he fakes a drowning accident to deliver the ripped pants joke. In a later episode, he also buys anchor arms in an attempt to impress her, too.
7 Sandy Gets SpongeBob Fired
Another very cool aspect of Sandy and SpongeBob's friendship is that they both enjoy karate immensely. However, when the two practice their hobby while SpongeBob is working at the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs tells him that he will be fired if he continues.
Thus, SpongeBob tells Sandy he no longer can, but she keeps adding fuel to the fire, and eventually karate chops SpongeBob while at a picnic. Sadly. Mr. Krabs catches them fighting from here and instantly fires him. Thankfully, though, Sandy convinces Mr. Krabs to rehire him.
6 SpongeBob Makes Sandy No Longer Homesick
Anyone who moves away from their home might get homesick, but when it happens to Sandy, it impacts her so much that she decides that she wants to leave Bikini Bottom and move back to Texas.
SpongeBob is very sad about this, so he plans a big party at the Krusty Krab to convince her to stay. He also gets her to attend by making Texas jokes, which eventually results in her chasing him and Patrick all the way to the restaurant. Once she sees SpongeBob's attempt to bring Texas to Bikini Bottom, she laughs hysterically and opts to stay.
5 They Learn Land And Sea Creatures Are Equal
Sandy and SpongeBob certainly are competitive with one another in the show. A great example of this is when Sandy argues that land creatures are better, while SpongeBob feels as though that sea creatures are.
RELATED: SpongeBob SquarePants Meets Recess - 5 Friendships That Would Work (& 5 That Wouldn’t)
This leads to Sandy taking off her suit after SpongeBob and the gang make fun of her for it, while the latter go on land and get attacked by seagulls. Thus, they all realize that they are in the wrong, as they all put each other in danger over something so trivial.
4 Sandy Attacks SpongeBob During Her Hibernation Period
Due to the fact Sandy is, of course, a squirrel, she must hibernate during the cold winter in this episode. However, while she is doing so, she asks SpongeBob to take care of her tree dome. Things quickly turn badly when Patrick visits, though, as the two fight over who gets to be Pinhead and Dirty Dan.
The noise of them fighting wakes Sandy up, and she is a monstrous beast and very angry. She attacks both SpongeBob and Patrick, but once it turns to spring, she goes back to her normal form. Thankfully, SpongeBob and Patrick survive the chaos.
3 SpongeBob Makes Too Many Jokes At Sandy's Expense
When SpongeBob takes up comedy and performs at the Krusty Krab, he struggles immensely to make the crowd laugh. In fact, Harold roasts his act in front of everyone in the process. Sandy is the only one not booing him, which makes what happens next so awful.
SpongeBob insults her big teeth, which makes everyone laugh. From there, he makes a plethora of jokes at Sandy's expense, which upsets her deeply, yet he continues to. However, she gets him to stop by acting in the way he portrays her to be through his jokes.
2 SpongeBob Becomes Sandy's Test Subject
As the show progresses, the emphasis on Sandy being a scientist expands immensely. In fact, most of her appearances in the series focus on that aspect, rather than the actual friendship she and SpongeBob have.
In fact, she goes as far as to make SpongeBob the person she always tests her experiments on. A lot of the time, it actually leads to SpongeBob being put in danger. Thus, it is a little sad that their dynamic is no longer as close as it once was.
1 They Are Married?!
In one episode of the show, SpongeBob brings up a flashback where he and Sandy get married. Patrick, Mr. Krabs, and Squidward are shocked when SpongeBob says it, as they do not remember it occurring.
From there, fans catch a glimpse of their wedding and are equally as surprised by what is happening. However, after a stage light falls down and breaks, it is revealed that it is actually a play. The audience leaves in anger after this occurs and Mr. Krabs goes as far as saying it is the worst play he has ever seen.

Angry spongebob sandy
Fictional animated character from Spongebob Squarepants
Sandra Jennifer "Sandy" Cheeks is a fictional character in the Nickelodeon franchise SpongeBob SquarePants. She is an anthropomorphicsquirrel who wears a diving suit and lives underwater. Sandy is voiced by Carolyn Lawrence and first appeared in the episode "Tea at the Treedome" that premiered on May 1, 1999. Sandy was created and designed by marine biologist and animatorStephen Hillenburg, the show's creator.
The character's reception from fans has been positive. Sandy has appeared in many SpongeBob SquarePants publications, toys, and other merchandise. She appears in the 2015 full-length feature film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water and its threequel, which was released in 2020.
Role in SpongeBob SquarePants
Sandy is a close friend of SpongeBob SquarePants. She is a proud Texan and speaks in a stereotypical Southern drawl. In order to live underwater, Sandy resides in a bubble-like dome and wears an atmospheric diving suit when outside her house.  Inside the treedome, her normal attire consists of a green and purple bikini. Conversely, as revealed in Tea at the Treedome, other characters must wear "water helmets" with opposite functionality when visiting her house. Sandy possesses extraordinary scientific skills such as the ability to construct complex inventions. Sandy is shown to possess a number of tough, tomboyish character traits and interests; she is skilled at karate, engages in bodybuilding, and is a rodeo champion. She is also a close friend of Patrick Star, SpongeBob's best friend and neighbor, though she sometimes gets annoyed by him.
Creation and design
Stephen Hillenburg first became fascinated with the ocean and began developing his artistic abilities as a child. During college, he majored in marine biology and minored in art. After graduating in 1984, he joined the Ocean Institute, an ocean education organization, where he had the idea to create a comic book titled The Intertidal Zone, which led to the creation of SpongeBob SquarePants. In 1987, Hillenburg left the Institute to pursue a career in animation.
A few years after studying experimental animation at the California Institute of the Arts, Hillenburg met Joe Murray, creator of Rocko's Modern Life, at an animation festival. Murray offered Hillenburg a job as a director of the series.Martin Olson, one of the writers for Rocko's Modern Life, read The Intertidal Zone and encouraged Hillenburg to create a television series with a similar concept. At that point, Hillenburg had not considered creating his own series, but soon realized that this was his chance. Shortly after production on Rocko's Modern Life ended in 1996, Hillenburg began working on SpongeBob SquarePants. Sandy has been shown in the episodes about her being in the tree dome. Whenever any aquatic creatures enter her home, they must wear helmets that are filled with water. Sandy works as a scientist, explorer, and inventor. She is also a rodeo champion with a number of athletic interests, such as "sand-boarding" and karate. Hillenburg designed Sandy in a way that both kids and adults can be able to like her tacky attitude.
The voice of Sandy Cheeks is provided by Carolyn Lawrence. Lawrence got the role of Sandy when she was in Los Angeles at Los Feliz. She met Donna Grillo, a casting director, on a sidewalk. Lawrence was with a friend who knew Grillo, and she said Lawrence had an interesting voice. Grillo brought Lawrence in to audition and she got the part.
Before a recording, Lawrence prepares when the crew sends a storyboard. She explains, "I absolutely love that! Not only do I get to read the script, I can actually see what the artists have in mind. It is an amazing process and I feel so fortunate to be able to work that way! [...] I would prefer to let the script come alive in me before a taping."
Sandy Cheeks is voiced by Carolyn Lawrence, and Presley Williams as young Sandy in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run.
Film critic A. O. Scott of The New York Times said, in his review of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, that Sandy is one of his favorite secondary characters on the show, along with Squidward Tentacles and Mrs. Puff. He wrote, "I was sorry to see [them] pushed to the margins".
In other media
Sandy has been included in various SpongeBob SquarePants-related merchandise, including board games, books, plush toys,and trading cards. Sandy also appears as a playable character in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.
