  • [episode begins with Gary, carrying SpongeBob throughout his driveway toward the mailbox]
  • SpongeBob: To the mailbox, Gary!
  • Gary: Meow meow.
  • SpongeBob: Oh, I almost forgot. Snake mode engaged! [hops off Gary and begins slithering toward the mailbox; he slithers up the mailbox post and slithers into the mailbox] Mail retrieved! [slithers out of mailbox with an envelope]
  • [SpongeBob slithers back to Gary and hops back onto his shell; Gary slugs back into the house; camera cuts to SpongeBob's living room]
  • SpongeBob: [springboards off of Gary onto sofa] Let us see what this envelope encases. "From: Deep Blue High School"? That was the high school I attended, Gary.
  • Gary: [offscreen] Meow.
  • SpongeBob: [opens letter; reads] Dear Mr. SquarePants...
  • Narrator: [takes over reading; speaks in a Rennaisaince-like voice] "It appears as though many years ago, our high school has made an error with your grading. Your SPA, or Sponge Point Average, was too low for you to pass on from our school. In order to fix this, you must re-attend our school for one week in order to fix your SPA."
  • SpongeBob: [finishes] Warm regards, DB High. High school? For a whole week?! It'll be fierce. I may not make it out alive, but I must take the risk. I must go through the unforbidden land of...[whispering] high school.
  • Gary: [slugs into scene] Meow. [slugs out of scene]
  • SpongeBob: What do you mean it's not that bad? What do you know? You're a snail.
  • [scene cuts to Deep Blue High School; a flourish of teenage fish are swarming the campus; the camera cuts to SpongeBob, trekking through the hallways with a backpack]
  • SpongeBob: Well, not much has changed since I've been here. Except for the students, of course. I wonder if anyone recognizes me.
  • Teacher 1: [offscreen] Hey, you!
  • SpongeBob: [approaches teacher] Me?
  • Teacher 1: Yeah, you. I remember you.
  • SpongeBob: You do?
  • Teacher 1: Yeah, from yesterday, when I saw your picture on the computer. You're the one who was too dumb to pass, right?
  • SpongeBob: Well, I wouldn't say...
  • Teacher 1: I would. Take this. [hands SpongeBob a hall pass] You'll need it. I just made you three minutes late to class. Now get there before I report you.
  • [SpongeBob darts down the hallway; while he passes, frightful music plays as multiple teenage fish stare down SpongeBob with unforgiving eyes]
  • SpongeBob: Must get away! Ahhh! [runs right into three giant fish]
  • Giant Fish 1: Hey, sponge, what's the big idea? [picks up SpongeBob to his feet]
  • SpongeBob: Why, thank you...
  • Giant Fish 1: Thank you, nothin'. You should be begging for forgiveness the way you ran into me and my friends here.
  • Giant Fish 2: Actually, he just ran into you.
  • Giant Fish 3: Yeah, just you, Rick.
  • Rick: Yeah, you just ran into me, which means you've got a problem with me.
  • SpongeBob: [shrugs] Please don't tear me into a thousand chewy pieces.
  • [the three giant fish all laugh hysterically]
  • SpongeBob: Was it something I said?
  • Rick: You're funny, sponge. We like funny. Welcome to the team, the "Holders" team! My name is Rick. [slams open hand into chest of Giant Fish 2] This is Stu.
  • Stu: I'm Stu.
  • Rick: [slams open hand into chest of Giant Fish 3] This is Pid.
  • Pid: My name is...uh...Pid.
  • SpongeBob: My name is...uh...Sponge...Bob?
  • Rick: Well then, welcome to the team.
  • SpongeBob: One question: why do you call yourselves "The Holders"?
  • Rick: Because no matter what grade we're in, we always get...
  • Rick, Stu, and Pid: [in unison] Held back!
  • Stu: Should we show him the chart?
  • Pid: Show him the chart, Rick.
  • Rick: [holds up chart] Here's the chart. There's a social chart in this school, and I'm the only one that has it. Right now, you're at the bottom. [points to the bottom] You need to get up here [points to top] if you want to stay in our group. Here, take this. [hands SpongeBob a mini-chart] Here's a pocket-sized version.
  • Stu: Of the same chart.
  • Pid: Exact replica, sponge.
  • Rick: Guard it with your life, and meet us here tomorrow. We have a pleasant surprise for you. Now get to class!
  • [SpongeBob dashes out of the scene]

  • SpongeBob: Not today, lunch lady. I packed a gourmet lunch. [walks to table; opens up bag] Now, to do the trick. [takes out a Krabby Patty, making all of the fish turn to look at it; a group of fish crowd around SpongeBob]
  • Teenage Fish 1: What is that?
  • Teenage Fish 2: That doesn't look like any of the grub they serve here.
  • SpongeBob: It's a hardy Krabby Patty.
  • Teenage Fish 3: Let's all watch him eat!

  • SpongeBob: About that...I think we should see other sponges.

  • Teenage Fish 7: I don't see why not. [throws cup at him]

  • Janitor: [runs into scene, holding a uniform] Hey, sponge. Take this! [runs away]
  • SpongeBob: [puts on janitor uniform] Oh, it's a janitor's uniform. Well, I cleaned up the cup. I might as well clean up the high school.

  • SpongeBob: '[sighs] What do I write? What do I say? It's the last day of high school, and I haven't written my graduation speech yet. [stands up and flops onto back] Maybe I should just go another week of high school. It's actually not that bad.
  • Male Teacher: [stands over SpongeBob] What are you doing in my classroom?
  • SpongeBob: Oh, sorry Mr. Fin. I'm just trying to write my graduation speech, and I've got nothing.
  • Mr. Fin: It's okay, SpongeBob. When I was in high school, I had trouble writing my speech, too. Actually, I had no trouble.

  • Mr. Fin: It doesn't, but get out! [throws SpongeBob through the roof]
  • [SpongeBob lands on the stage in the auditorium]
  • Announcer: And here, we have our next graduate, meeting his Sponge Point Average, SpongeBob SquarePants!
  • SpongeBob: [in thought] What to do. What to say. Come on, SquarePants, just think of something. What's happened to you in the past week? [clears throat; sighs] My fellow high-schoolers, let me just say that it has been an honor to attend class with you. In the past week of school, I have learned the do's and the do-not's of school life. [to self] So far, so good.
  • [camera cuts to scenes from throughout the episode while SpongeBob speaks]
  • SpongeBob: I have seen those who have taught me the ways of truth, and those who have shown me dishonest means. But through it all, it has been a very rough journey.
  • [the rest of the speech is split into many different parts]
  • SpongeBob: And that's when I learned to re-screw the...the double axis turned out to be a toilet...the sandwich I ate that day was purely...and the sack turned out to be the lunch food...and with that, I end my speech and gladly accept my valet hat and gown, knowing the road that I traveled.

  • SpongeBob: You mean that I didn't have to go through all the aching pains and troubles of a modern high school life?! You mean all of the teachers, bullies, pranks, and mischief? The relationships and break-ups? All of it was just a waste?!
