BlackMarsh : When Spongebob did cutaways they were better than family guy in its prime

tonygeek12 : I bet the writer of this episode was depressed at the time.

AquaticNeptune : "To not be in prison" The window looks just like a jail cell

404UsernameNotFoundX : the emptyness in the boat behind him shows how empty his life is. the cubicles shows how trapped he is. he and the wife are in debt, can barely pay for car insurance and gas. he can't think of the good times he has in his childhood, but he can't. his childhood memories are nightmares to him. his mother is an alcoholic and his dad left him when he was a little fish. he felt alone. therapy never helped him. he just wants to end it all. he didn't want to live no longer. that night, he ended it. when his wife slept, he took out a pistol, shot himself in the mouth.

waxedtaters : 2 questions: who is driving the car behind him, and how does he get into his cubical?

AlmightyArceus : As a kid, I knew I didn't want a life like this. Just graduated college and I'm doing everything in my power to not have that life. Keeping this at the forefront of my mind as an example of what to try to avoid.

WesternWolf : Laughed as child Slight sobering frown as an adult lol

KennyG881 : It's actually disturbing how accurate this is

Spandan Banerjee : Surprisingly profound social commentary.

Alex Mathew Mendoza : As a child, I thought this was funny because of the clear repetition of the guy's life. But as an adult, it's a very sobering view of life for many people stuck in a 9-5 office job wherein life's meaning is slowly eroded by the emptiness of the cycle.

DarkLightPrince : I just realized that the fish driving aren't even on the road.

Tran Le : That guy sounds so miserable when he says "Yes Dear," as if every syllable is draining what little joy is left in his soulless heart.

TheRich4270 : Attention Family Guy: THIS is how you do a cutaway gag.

knuclear2010 : I can totally relate to thi- >coming to bed, honey? >yes, dear never mind...;_;

Tlactl : this made me think more deeply than it was meant to

logan sullivan : Sadly, this is depressingly true

OrneryTexan : Well...at least he has a wife to come home to and never wakes up in an empty bed. *forever alone*

Gabriel Blas : I wish my parents explained this scene to me as a kid, regardless of how pessimistic they sound. It sucks how they spoiled me as a kid and didn't prepare me on how much of a dream-crusher real life can be.

lorderik237 : This once made me laugh as a child. Now it makes me cry.

Jacob Smith : We do this for 40 years and then we die

Mike Illmatic : I miss that old school dark reality humor in this show God how this show used to be amazing

The UnknownCommenter : Turns out no one was out of prison in the first place

Alexis Plummer : My dad once whispered "yep, exactly" at this scene and I never knew what he was talking about.

das it mane : This is pretty depressing for a cartoon.

heck off : until you get tired of it all and put a gun against your head and pull the trigger

TitanDweevilMassacre : This is why there's a suicide forest in Japan.

Mr. Red 88 : I get up, go to work, come home watch TV and go to bed. Up ,work ,home, TV ,bed! Up ,work ,home, TV, bed!

roan33 : My life in a nutshell. 

ARPANET Troll : Dude has a job, a house, and a wife. As far as I can tell, he's winning

Jacob Langlet : Wife: Coming to bed honey?

Raz Yizhack : the best 10 seconds in spongbob episode ever  . so brilliant !


joshua machado : prison or no prison... us average people will always be in our own mental prison... we get paid little. never recognized for anything. then we die

Dasse : Yep, that's life it sucks

Syed Eusoff : Oh man that was deep. Its basically saying that life itself is a prison 😕

Hilman Samsung : when i was a kid i laughed at this. Now that im working i still laugh at this beacause of how Painfully accurate this is.

Trevor Davidson : Reminds me of a family guy cutaway

Foxy Grandpa : This makes me wonder how bad prison life is compared to the daily cycle of a 9-5 job. Spongebob is essentially telling his tubby pink companion known as Patrick that the mind itself can be a prison, if one allows it to be

Kerry Smith : um yeah I'm going need those tps reports by Monday

Christopher Zampella : "Talking to inanimate objects again, huh Puff?".

Night Terror : 0:04 The car behind him is empty.

PokéMarioStudio101 : This show tried to warn me what was to come and I didn't even know it

Mr. Hyde : That "What am I even living for?" moment. People go to school and study hard to get a decent job and start a family on their own. This is the life goal of most humans. But once they reach that "goal" they just keep working their ass off until they grow old and die. There's nothing more to it. Yeah it's depressing. But well I believe in an afterlife so I have something to hope for.

Tallahasse Toby : that shot around 0:08 is so brilliant; the bars on his window communicate his imprisonment. next level shit.

Fernando Ramos : Life being so boring, with nothing fun and exciting to do. That's pretty much me. 😓

Lucent Shadow : Outside life IS prison.

Relentless Chaos : Holy S*it The Creators of Spongebob were accurate about life

thagumaster1 : rhis scene makes me ask if we are really free. if tou notice every part with the fish hes inside somthing, the car his cubicle and his house its like hes caged. so no metter prison or the outside world we're still caged or not free

BlueSoloCup : This is what comes to mind everyday as I wake up at 4, and when I get off work at 4, only to sit in two hours of traffic. At least this guy has a wife.

Kevin Silva : SpongeBob is for adults...ALSO!
