"Choir Boys" is an episode from Season 6.





Squidward has another scheme to become famous He dresses up and is excited to sing with the Bikini Bottom's Men's Chorus. He is confident that they will make him their lead soloist. He leaves his house to find SpongeBob depressed, lying on the ground. SpongeBob is sad because Patrick is gone, at a family reunion. SpongeBob wants to go with Squidward, but Squidward does not want him to. Squidward tells him that he is going to be a featured soloist. SpongeBob has a song in his heart that he wants to share. SpongeBob clears his throat for an extremely long time, but Squidward leaves on his bicycle before he can start singing. SpongeBob continues to follow Squidward, trying to get his attention. At one point he digs a giant pothole in the street, causing Squidward to be launched into Jellyfish Fields, where he is stung repeatedly by jellyfish. Squidward is worried that SpongeBob will embarrass him at the practice, so he ties SpongeBob to some coral using seaweed. SpongeBob sings a prolonged, pretty note, causing his bonds to break, and attracting jellyfish. The jellyfish lift up SpongeBob and begin carrying him to the Bikini Bottom Men's Chorus. When Squidward arrives at singing practice, he is very bad at singing and when Squidward sings badly SpongeBob arrives on cue with his jellyfish entourage to outdo Squidward. SpongeBob is given the position that Squidward was hoping for, much to Squidward's disappointment. SpongeBob agrees to be the featured soloist as long as they find a "spot for [his] inspiration and great friend, Squidward." Squidward is given the job of turning the pages of sheet music for SpongeBob much to his anger.
