"Suction Cup Symphony" is an episode from Season 6.





SpongeBob, planting flowers in his yard, hears Squidward making fart noises (In reality he's just practicing with his clarinet). He then sees two construction workers putting up a billboard sign. Knowing that Squidward is "embarrassed" by it, he rushes over to the billboard workers and tries to tell them to stop doing that. Squidward notices what is going on, and yells at them. The billboard workers say "Excuse me," and finish a billboard saying "Original compositions wanted!" for the Bikini Bottom Orchestra. Excited, Squidward starts writing a musical piece. SpongeBob and Patrick show up in his room, and Squidward kicks them out. Patrick, who broke his butt, claims that he needs to go to the doctor, but does not have health insurance because he does not work, SpongeBob becomes a doctor, and tries to help Patrick, but it makes a lot of noise. Distracting him, Squidward opens his window and starts screaming them for the noise that they are making. This pretty much goes on for a while, with a clock shown to show us how much time has gone by. Finally, after hours of working, Squidward finally finishes his piece and rushes to the orchestra. He shows them the piece, and they accept it.

Later on, Squidward walks on to the stage, bows, and starts conducting his piece. The orchestra members start to play it, but find SpongeBob being a doctor to Patrick by making noise again. Wondering why they are there, Squidward notices that he had drawn everything that they did on the piece of music! Squidward, frustrated, continues conducting, watching every little thing that SpongeBob and Patrick did earlier, eventually, Patrick flips in the air, and lands on Squidward. Squidward then gets on his feet, and yells at Patrick for being an idiot, but then notices the audience is still there. Turning around, he blushes, and the audience members start clapping, claiming "Now, that's what I call music!" SpongeBob then remarks that Squidward is a great composer, and Squidward bows for the final time. Then Patrick blows up Squidward's head.Then the sceen turns black and then theres a pop noise.
