My absolute favorite part is Nyeh Squidward? Nyeh Squidward? Nyeh Squidward?

And how SB takes "destroying your oppressive establishment" all too literally :)

This was the last episode produced for Season 2, and it weaved together all of the season's best elements effortlessly. It starts with Mr. Krabs being a cheapskate again, and Squidward, fed up with it all, decides to go on strike. He takes SpongeBob along for the ride, and as you can expect, it doesn't pan out that well. SpongeBob's ignorance of labor union tactics causes him to unintentionally obstruct Squidward's airing of grievances. However, after getting SpongeBob out of the way, Squidward manages to fire up crowds with words I didn't understand when I first watched the episode and some I don't understand now. SpongeBob, moved by the speech, tells off Mr. Krabs and decides to take matters into his own hands. It seems, though, that he didn't quite get the symbolism of the speech, because he ends up dismantling the restaurant.

Overall, this was a great and funny episode. I love when the storylines are simple like that, because they give the writers tons of much-needed leeway.

I don't get why this episode has gotten flack recently. To me it's always been a very good classic from Season 2. It's great to see an episode where someone (Squidward) finally stands up to Krabs and his greedy business practices, and there are many great lines, "YOU ARE A TERRIBLE STRIKER!". I also laughed at many points in this episode, such as the "NYEH Squidward" part as well as the end where SpongeBob and Squidward are still working as skeletons. It's a very solid episode that in my mind was a great way to end Season 2. It might not be the very best of the season, but that doesn't mean it isn't great.

I quite like this one. It's a nice parody on striking, and they get some good comedy out of it. I also like the plot, but it does feel slightly dull at times. Also, I know a lot of people don't like the ending, but I thought it was quite funny. Not much else to say about this one, it's just pretty solid.

Good episode (8/10)

I love how this episode shows that Squidward can actually stand up for himself, and that he's not just a weenie who never does anything about his horrible life. This is one of my favorites featuring Squidward, and definitely top 30 worthy.
