House Sittin' for Sandy is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season eight. In this episode, SpongeBob agrees to be Sandy's house sitter, and chaos erupts when Patrick arrives for a visit.



It starts at SpongeBob's house and he is sleeping. Then SpongeBob gets ready for work, but Gary keeps on bothering him. He realizes its Sunday so he goes back in to bed. The phone rings and SpongeBob answers it, thinking it is Mr. Krabs wanting him to go to work, but it is actually Sandy Cheeks. Sandy wants him to house sit her house. Then Sandy tells him what to do. She wants him to see if the temperature at the green house is normal, then she wanted him to make sure the worms in the incubator is okay, etc. Then SpongeBob does his chores when she is gone and all of them are okay. But he discovers that a worm is hatching and that wasn't right, but it was actually Patrick. SpongeBob wants Patrick to go, but he talked him in to staying here. Then he said "okay", but he wanted Patrick to not touch anything. Unfortunately, he does. Then SpongeBob accidentally drops one of Sandy's equipment and it hits the robots and the place turns into a disaster! Then Sandy appears with a laser and SpongeBob and Patrick thinks that she is going to hurt them, but she just turns the disaster into what it was before. She tells them it was an experiment, and congratulates them for destroying her dome. Then SpongeBob drops one of her equipment and turns into a disaster again. Then she thinks it is okay, since she still has her laser. But a robot grabs it and destroys it. Spongebob asks Sandy if she brought more than one of those lasers, but Sandy doesn't answer, indicating that she had only one. As Spongebob and Patrick leaves the treedome in a hurry, the episode ends with Sandy angrily shouting out, "SpongeBOOOOOOOOB!!!.


  • This is the second time SpongeBob and Patrick house sit for Sandy. The first episode is "Wormy."
  • This episode has a Battle for Bikini Bottom reference in it, which is robots causing destruction.
  • Running Gag: Patrick saying "Wasn't me".
  • This episode was supposed to be paired with "Pet Sitter Pat", but it changed to "Smoothe Jazz at Bikini Bottom."
  • This is another episode where when there was a cause of disaster (in this case a rolling beaker) and SpongeBob just stood there and didn't try to stop it. Someone who watched the episode commented "Hello, stupid - catch the beaker before it hits the robots."
  • There's a scallop in the cage also seen in Help WantedMissing IdentityPineapple Fever, and Pet Sitter Pat.
  • This is the fifth time SpongeBob doesn't have a water helmet on in Sandy's dome. The first episode was Tea at the Treedome.The second episode was Survival of the Idiots. The third episode was Squirrel Jokes. The fourth episode was Yours, Mine and Mine.The sixth episode is Squirrel Record.
  • This episode is similar to  Wormy and To Save a Squirrel because in Wormy, SpongeBob and Patrick watch over Sandy's house and in To Save a Squirrel, there is a weird plot twist.
  • Some viewers were so appalled at the thought of Sandy killing SpongeBob and Patrick (as was depicted in the promo), that they started a boycott of the episode, only to see that she didn't try to kill them after all.
  • The is the third time SpongeBob and Sandy are ex-best friends. The first was Pressure and the second was What Ever Happened to SpongeBob? Although there might be time when they were ex-best friends in other few episodes (In Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV, when she kicked SpongeBob's brain, or when she laughed at SpongeBob and Patrick in Pranks A Lot or when she participated in No SpongeBob Day in Gone. Or in Ripped Pants where she hangs out with Larry when he takes the ripped pants joke too far). However despite that how many times they have been ex-best friends they become best friends again and their friendship remains.
  • This is the fourth time SpongeBob runs out of water. The first one was "Tea at the Treedome", the second one was "Squirrel Jokes." The third one was "Yours, Mine and Mine." The fith was "Face Freeze!"
  • The title card for this episode is the same as "Dumped", "Patrick SmartPants", and "Penny Foolish", except in different colors. This one is orange and zoomed in MUCH more.
  • In this episode, as well as "SB-129" and "Something Smells", the Krusty Krab is closed on Sunday. However, in "Born Again Krabs", SpongeBob says while continuing the talk with the Flying Dutchman that on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, AND Sunday that he goes to work.
  • The way Sandy blushes may hint she has a crush on Spongebob.
  • This is one of several times that Patrick causes SpongeBob to disobey Sandy's commands (although this one may or may not count). Others include "Sandy's Rocket" and "Squidtastic Voyage" .
  • Sandy's robots return in Squirrel Record.
  • This is the second time SpongeBob wears a maid's outfit. The first was in "Can You Spare a Dime?
