This episode isn't very good IMO. It had some humor, yes, but the plot is pretty stupid: Gary decides to be Patrick's pet instead of SpongeBob's. SpongeBob starts missing Gary, and he gets more pets. SpongeBob then finds out that Gary only wanted Patrick because he had a cookie in his pocket.
Then the CRYING. This is too much crying, especially for post movie. My grade for this is 5/10.
Actually, 9.9/10. This episode is in my top 10.BrickSponge2015 said:Patrick was being annoyingly OOC, but this episode is actually pretty underrated. If you overlook Patrick, SpongeBob's attempts to make Gary jealous were very humorous to me. I'd give it an 8/10.
I actually disliked both Dumped and I'm With Stupid even when I was a kid. It's not fair of you to assume that people are just jumping on the bandwagon when they say they dislike this episode. It may be true for some people, but not everyone.TattleTaleStrangler said:I'm sorry, how can a character be OUT OF CHARACTER in the second season of a television show when the writers are still building the characters??? Patrick had plenty of abusive moments in Season one. This episode gets hate because one guy purporting to be a 'master critic' said it was a bad episode somewhere down the line.
At the time, and for years after, this episode never got hate. EVER. This and I'm With Stupid are just two shining examples of how many young bandwagoners there are around here who weren't actually paying attention when the episode first aired. Clearly, they can't just defend the newer seasons, they have to go ahead and arbitrarily pick episodes from earlier seasons to crucify to 'help' make their point.
