The Abrasive Side is an episode from Season 3.


Gary orders a product for SpongeBob that can help him say no to anyone who needs SpongeBob to help them.


SpongeBob is waiting at the bus stop to go to Glove World. He promised Jimmy, Timmy and B.O.B. that they would be first in line, and to be first to get on the bus. Then a lot of fish come and push in front of him. Jimmy, Timmy and B.O.B. comes and asks SpongeBob why he is not first (like he promised). XJ-4 comes and ask SpongeBob for something. Jimmy, Timmy and B.O.B. goes to Glove World without SpongeBob. After that, he goes back to the bus stop, then Mr. Krabs asks SpongeBob for something. He then goes back to the bus stop and helps Toaster to make a toast. Jimmy, Timmy and B.O.B. returns and tells SpongeBob that sometimes he just has to say no, then asks SpongeBob to scratch their backs. He is shown at the HQ crying. Gary then goes to a catalog and orders something for SpongeBob. The package arrives and says "Abrasive Sponge". He sticks it on his back. He goes out and a fish asks him to carry his laundry for him. His body switches 180 degrees, showing the abrasive side and says "Carry it yourself, fish-face" for SpongeBob. He does the same for Larry the Lobster, Toaster, Jenny and XJ-4. He then goes into the Krusty Krab, then Mr. Krabs asks him to do a 17 hours extra shift. SpongeBob says yes, but then his abrasive side says no, unless Mr. Krabs pays for overtime. Mr. Krabs goes to his office to look up the meaning for "overtime" - then is shocked that SpongeBob could use such a word.

He goes home and Sheen, Chester and Patrick says not to annoy him. SpongeBob's abrasive side says the complete opposite that SpongeBob would normally says, then Squidward gets happy and hugs him: "You don't know how long I have waited to hear those words." Jimmy, Timmy and B.O.B. says it's time for their mission. SpongeBob talks and so does his abrasive side, confusing Jimmy, Timmy and B.O.B.. He goes into their HQ to the bathroom and stares into the mirror, and realizes whats wrong - that his abrasive side is getting out of control. He asks Jimmy, Timmy, B.O.B. and Mr. Krabs for help, but his abrasive side gets the better of him. He goes to Jenny and XJ-4 for help, then explains what happened and why he got an abrasive side. Jenny then rips it off his back, while SpongeBob holds Patrick, then is shown with intense pain for a short while as Sandy rips the abrasive side off. Sandy puts it in a box labelled "Return to sender" and puts it in the mailbox. SpongeBob then remembers to go say sorry to Toaster. He goes, then it turns out that Toaster has got an abrasive side now too.
