Characters

Synopsis

The episode starts at the Krusty Krab, Squidward is handing a customer a tray of a King-Size Ultra Krabby Supreme with mayonnaise. After seeing the customer eat it, Squidward expresses his disgust for Krabby Patties, despite never having eaten one. SpongeBob insists that he tries one, claiming that they are so popular that the only people who dislike Krabby Patties have never eaten one. To get SpongeBob to leave him alone, Squidward eventually does and bites only a piece of the patty off. Squidward's opinion of Krabby Patties seems to remain unchanged, as he angrily says to SpongeBob that the one he tried was the worst food he has ever eaten and buries the patty to its "death."

When a dejected SpongeBob leaves, Squidward desperately digs up the patty and eats the remains when he realizes that he likes them. He wants to have more, but after already stating that he hates Krabby Patties to SpongeBob, Squidward then forces himself to sneak for one without him knowing, as he thinks that SpongeBob would never let him live it down if he found out that Squidward likes them. Squidward tries to have another Krabby Patty by stating an "order" to SpongeBob for a Triple Krabby Supreme on a kelp bun, with extra sea pickles and burnt to the crisp. After making it, SpongeBob announces the supposed customer's order, but no one responds, bringing him to the conclusion that they must have left, so he eats it himself, leaving Squidward disappointed over his missed opportunity.

After this attempt fails, Squidward then resorts to eating a half-eaten Krabby Patty from the trash can and digs it up, but before he can eat it, SpongeBob grabs the patty and sadly burns it, claiming that a Krabby Patty should not be disposed of in such means, once again ruining Squidward's chance to have another Krabby Patty.

After having a dream of a giant Krabby Patty as his wife, a determined Squidward continues to try to eat another patty by going back to the Krusty Krab in the middle of the night. He then enters the patty vault, where legions of ready-made Krabby Patties are. Before he can finally have another, SpongeBob enters. Squidward is surprised that SpongeBob is there, until SpongeBob says that he always comes to work at 3 a.m. to count the sesame seeds. SpongeBob is confused why Squidward is in the Krusty Krab at such an early time with the patty vault open and a Krabby Patty behind his back, before realizing that he likes Krabby Patties. Once SpongeBob asks Squidward, the latter openly states that he indeed loves Krabby Patties before wolfing down the patties in the vault. SpongeBob then warns Squidward not to eat too many of them in there, as they all go down to his thighs and, as Squidward sarcastically predicts, cause him to subsequently explode.

Later, as the episode ends, a bodiless Squidward is taken to the hospital in an ambulance, and a paramedic who is sitting beside him, holding his tentacles, jokingly says that he remembers the time he had his first Krabby Patty.

Just One Bite Deleted Scene Logoless

Deleted scene from this episode.

In the original airing, there was a scene where Squidward triggers a burglar alarm consisting of a bucket of gasoline that he mistakes for a bucket of water, which is spilled, lit on fire, and explodes (which Mr. Krabs installed the security system to keep anyone, and Plankton, out from entering) is cut out of later airings of this episode. Reports of the scene being deleted were as early as January 2002, a mere three months after the episode originally aired.[4][5] Initially, explanations for the removal were thought to be either to respect the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks, which occurred less than a month before the episode aired, or to prevent children from attempting to use and/or ignite gas.[6] Current showrunner Vincent Waller has confirmed in a statement on Twitter on June 4, 2018 that the removal of the scene was ultimately due to Nickelodeon being against the idea of a gag involving a match and gasoline.[7] It was also due to a Standards and Practices issue. The edited version is included on the Tales from the Deep, Complete 3rd Season, Holiday Cruise Collection, The Ultimate Box Set, Sponge in Service, 10 Happiest Moments, First 100 Episodes, Glumly Squidward, Really Big Box Set, The SpongeBob Birthday Box, Double Feature Volume 3, The Underwater Stories, The Ultimate SpongeBob Box Set, Treasure Chest: Double Pack, SpongeBob SquarePants Vol. 4, Complete Third Season, From the Beginning, Pt.1, The SpongeBob SquarePants Collection, The SpongeBob SquarePants 8 Season DVD Collection, 2-Season TV Pack, The Third & Fourth Seasons, and The Best 200 Episodes Ever DVDs, the Deep Sea Sillies and Tales from the Deep VHS tapes, and the VideoNow versions.[8] Today, the uncut episode is still mainly aired only on Canadian channels, including YTV and Nickelodeon Canada. It is also known to be dubbed in Korean. It is unknown why it was not deleted in Canada and Korea.

All Canadian airings and all Korean airings show this scene; it is also available on the Canadian version of Apple TV with a Nick+ subscription. All airings in other countries, all DVDs, all VHS tapes, the iTunes version, Amazon Prime Video, and the VideoNow versions show the edited version.

Original airing, Canadian airings, Korean airings, and the Canadian Apple TV version:

  • Squidward: There it is, unguarded! All I have to do is... wait. It's too easy. There must be some kind of [liquid drips] ...security? This is our burglar alarm? A bucket of water? Ha ha! [kicks the door open, thus spilling the bucket over] That was too easy! [sniffs the liquid] Hey, this isn't water. This is... gas! [A robot arm drops a lit match into the gas, resulting in a huge explosion. Squidward screams and enters the kitchen, but just as he thinks his pain is over, he sets off another burglar alarm. The kitchen bursts into flames for a few seconds. Then he gasps at the sight of the Patty Vault and walks over to it.]

All airings in other countries, all DVDs, all VHS tapes, the iTunes version, Amazon Prime Video, Paramount+, and the VideoNow versions:

  • Squidward: There it is! [cuts to the interior of Krusty Krab with the camera zooming in through a window to the Patty Vault. Squidward approaches it as he did in the original version. The rest of the episode goes normally.]

When the uncut version was aired, "The Bully" aired first and "Just One Bite" second; however, in all showings of the edited version, the order of the two episodes segments are reversed. This was due to "The Bully" being heavily advertised[citation needed] as the episode where a butt-kicking bully named Flats the Flounder joins SpongeBob's boating class.

Release

Reception

  • "Just One Bite" was ranked #21 during the Best Day Ever event from November 9–10, 2006.

Trivia

General

"I have no soul!"

Squidward's unsure face.

"You like Krabby Patties, don't you, Squidward?"

  • Four parts of the episode have become internet memes:
    • Squidward saying "I have no soul!" resulting in an animation of Hell being shown.
    • Squidward's detailed face following him saying "Does this look unsure to you?," which has been given the name "Skodwarde."
    • SpongeBob's face when he realizes Squidward likes Krabby Patties.
    • Squidward's line "You forgot your mayonnaise."
  • All the Krabby Patties in Squidward's thighs look normal-shaped. This implies that Squidward just swallowed them all without chewing them, and the Krabby Patties were not digested and turned into another shape.
  • Before the patty vault was removed, according to the deleted scene, the Krusty Krab could survive the two explosions, but it would take days or weeks to repair all the damage done. The tables would have been burned completely, and everything else would burn up unless SpongeBob counters the explosion by throwing water on the match before it falls on the gas. It still would take a long time to clean up the mess of the first two explosions.[citation needed]
  • In this episode, Squidward says he has never had a Krabby Patty and hates them, but SpongeBob accidentally launched several into Squidward's mouth in "Your Shoe's Untied."
  • In the Croatian dub, the episode name is "Grizić," which translates to "Little Bite" or "Bitey."
  • The SquidBot has a weakness that references this episode in the video game SpongeBob's Truth or Square.
  • In airing order, this episode and "The Bully" are the first two episodes to not have the Dot crawl effect, likely from being mastered on superior video formats.
  • The Patty Vault in this episode was later turned into a 500 puzzle piece puzzle.[13]
  • After the match and bucket of gas scene was removed in 2002, the deleted scene was accidentally aired on Valentine's Day 2004 in the United States.[14]

Cultural references

  • When SpongeBob jumps out of the trash can, he appears in the style of Guiseppe Arcimboldo, a 16th-century painter famous for his portraits constructed from food items.

Errors

The Chum Bucket is missing.

Adobe GPU error appears.

The cash register is missing.

  • At the very beginning, when Squidward says, "I hate Krabby Patties," the cash register is missing. It does not show back up until over halfway through the episode when SpongeBob is asking who ordered the Triple Krabby Supreme.

Error in Just One Bite.jpg

  • When the scenes switch to Incidental 40 enjoying his King-Sized Ultra Krabby Supreme, the Chum Bucket across the street is missing.
  • When SpongeBob handcuffs himself to Squidward, the handcuffs disappear when Squidward takes the Krabby Patty.

The window switches place.

  • When SpongeBob goes inside the Krusty Krab, a window can be seen on his right, but when Squidward is about to enter, the window is on his left.
  • In the digital restoration, for a brief second when SpongeBob says "I didn't think it was possible, but, I guess some people just don't like Krabby Patties.," an Adobe GPU error which says "This effect requires GPU acceleration" appears.

SpongeBob has 6 patties, now he has 10 patties, then 6 again.

  • When Squidward is watching the Krabby Patties, there are six of them. In the next scene, there are 10.

The wrinkles on Squidward's forehead are missing.

  • Shortly after Squidward says "And no one," the wrinkles on his forehead disappear.
  • After Squidward says "I have no soul" and the fire background returns to the Krusty Krab, an improperly applied green screen effect can be seen.

Squidward's mouth is missing in this frame.

  • When Squidward turns around and says "SpongeBob?," his mouth disappears for a split-second. This also happens when Squidward says "I gotta have more!"
  • In the uncut version, the patty vault is not seen through the ordering window. In the edited version, it is.
  • In the uncut version, after the two fires have occurred, Squidward had ashes on him. However, after he had approached to the patty vault, the ashes disappeared.
  • When SpongeBob says, "I knew it all along, Squidward," his upper top-left hole is colored blue for a split second.
