Life Lessons from Movies

Spongebob SquarePants

In Fantasy, Movies on June 25, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Spongebob SquarePants: The movie (2004) is a fantasy co-written and co-directed by Stephen Hillenburg about a pair of friends, SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) and Patrick Star (Bill Fagerbakke), who go on a journey to vindicate Mr. Krabs (Clancy Brown), a restaurant owner falsely accused by his rival Plankton (Doug Lawrence) of stealing King Neptune’s crown.

Life Lesson:

Rise above the low expectations of others.

Movie Scene:

Plankton: “You never had a chance to defeat me, fool. And you know why?”

SpongeBob: “Because you cheated?”

Plankton: “No, not because I cheated, because I’m an evil genius. And you’re just a– a kid, a stupid kid.”

SpongeBob: “I guess you’re right, Plankton. I am just a kid. And you know, I’ve been through a lot in the past six days, five minutes, twenty-seven-and-a-half seconds. And if I’ve learned anything during that time, it’s that you are who you are. And no amount of mermaid magic, or managerial promotion, or some other third thing, can make me anything more than what I really am inside: a kid. But that’s ok, because I did what everyone said a kid couldn’t do. I made it to Shell City, and I beat the Cyclops, and I rode the Hasselhoff, and I brought the crown back!”
