Basket Grunge is the fourth episode of the fourth season of Basket Sponge. This episode is the 64th episode overall.


SpongeBob and Larry get new glasses when a doctor prescribes them with bad eyesight, and now have to adjust so they can adjust to their newest challenges.


[SpongeBob and Larry sit down in the opticians near each other.]

Larry: So, why would we end up here?

SpongeBob: You do remember....?

Larry: Short-term memory.

SpongeBob: You never said.

Larry: I didn't want to...

SpongeBob: Alright, alright... I'll tell you.

[The first practice in the week... after Larry came back.]

Kobe: Larry... there's a reason why I sent you off. You're crap.

Larry: Would have guessed that without the mail return in Cleveland, coach.

Kobe: Wait... stop using the reverse psychology and why are you talking to the bench.

Larry: What... is that why you stretched to lose the pounds, coach?

Kobe: You got a visual impairment?

Larry: A visual what-ment?

Kobe: You need the glasses.

Larry: I do not want four eyes.

Kobe: Say that to the bench you keep talking to. Out now!

[Larry makes a sad dog noise.]

SpongeBob: Kobe. That was a bit weird.

Kobe: Face is up here. You're looking at my...

SpongeBob: I'll go now...

[He leaves as well. He and Larry decide to head off towards the opticians.]

SpongeBob: And that's it...

INTOCOM: "Mr Lobster, next. Mr Lobster.... next."

Larry: That's me...!

Mr. Lobster: Sorry, Larry. I'm 'Mr. Lobster'. First name is Mr, remember?

Larry: Damn my short-term memory.

Mr. Lobster: You have short-term memory? Then how do you play basketball?

SpongeBob: He doesn't really play good anymore. He plays.... but not good.

Bulldog Fan (with braces): Wait a minute.... How come you were so good the Cebu Elites.

Larry: Well...

[We start to go into a flashback but...]

SpongeBob: The truth is we lied. It's a publicity thing! Now scram... We're wasting time here.

[FINALLY, at the opticians.]

Optician: In these tests we can see that both you two need glasses... but how come your so good at basketball in your team and you have to come here?

SpongeBob: Well...

Optician: Can you tell me without flashback?

SpongeBob: Yeah... it's because we've been staring at the sun a bit too long.

Optician: Oh yes... the "Burn Baby Burn" solution.

Larry: The government named a problem after an Ash song? Disgusting...

Optician: Try these on...

[He gives them the glasses that they have been prescribed.]

Optician: They'll be quite helpful...

SpongeBob: We'll take them then...

Optician: That's fine with me. [chuckles.]

[SpongeBob and Larry then burst into the gym.]

Larry: We're...... back!

Kobe: Those glasses do annnyyyyyyy.... what?

Larry: Coach, you alright?

Kobe: Sorry about that you two... I'll erm stop with the...

Larry: Coach, you're not turning gay over us in glasses, are you?

Kobe: No.

Larry: I'm just gonna leave now... are you, SpongeBob?

SpongeBob: Yepppppppppp... I will.

[They leave before Kobe starts to get them.]

SpongeBob: Yeah, it's a bit too gay. But what's the problem? These glasses don't make us look that different.

Larry: We'll need to talk to that optician again...

[They go back in and the optician looks at them with a sort of evil smirk on his face.]

Larry: What the hell did you do to us?

Optician: Prescribed you glasses. What's the matter with that?

SpongeBob: The glasses make our coach feel a little bit... well, a bit weird.

Optician: You look fine... for what you are now.

[He shows them the new 'versions' of themselves.]

Larry: What the hell, why do we look like anime characters? I mean... what kind of optician are you?

Optician: Not just one... but....

[He rips off a latex mask to show them that he was Adam was in disguise.]

Adam: Me, ladies and gentlemen.

Larry: Why is it always you?

Adam: Because a married man can still have some fun. I may never own the Tomahawks, but I still love a bit of evil.

Larry: Well, if you put it that way...

[Larry punches Adam who is then knocked out.]

SpongeBob: Isn't that anti-climatic?

Larry: Don't worry... everything will go back to normal next week. Wanna keep the glasses?

SpongeBob: Sure... it will be awesome for a prank.

[They leave as it marks the end of the episode.]

Deleted Scene

This scene would have been placed right at the end. I deleted it because it felt too out of place and was like a bad 'Family Guy' cut-away joke.

JASBRE2002: So, your 'first' episode returning is a one about glasses that make people turn gay because they are anime characters.

IMPERIAL: Yeah.. that's what it's supposed to be.

JASBRE2002: That's the lamest idea I've ever heard. These episodes are suppoused to be great!

LUIS: You know that the series always went into different ideas? Bugs created Cinco De Mayo.

IMPERIAL: Yeah, I created A Glimpse of the Future which Bugs liked and fixed your Season 1 finale.

JASBRE2002: But the only reason we're here is because you cancelled the show after your shoddy third season.

IMPERIAL: Luis wasn't there to control me.

LUIS: Only because I was away.

IMPERIAL: Anyway, there's my episode. I'll see you in Prague.

[He leaves the room.]
