Of all the characters from Spongebob Squarepants, there was none more hilarious or lovable than Patrick Star. Patrick, Spongebob's goofball neighbor and best friend, always stole the show with his hilarious antics and quotes. His voice, provided by Bill Fagerbakke, perfectly matches his personality, allowing him to make us laugh with practically every word he says.

Even as adults, we still have an undying love for the pink sea-star. Some of his quotes are just as funny to us today as grown-ass adults as they were the first time we heard them. These are ten of those quotes — you're welcome, world.


10. That Time Patrick Made Up A Word

Patrick: "You know what the problem is?"

Spongebob: "What?"

Patrick: "You've got it set to M for Mini, when it should be set to W for Wumbo."

Spongebob: "Patrick, I don't think 'Wumbo' is a real word."

Patrick: "Come on, you know. I wumbo; you wumbo. He, she, me, wumbo. Wumbo. Wumbo-ing [...] Wumbology! The study of wumbo! It's first grade, Spongebob!"

Spongebob: "Patrick, I'm sorry I doubted you."

Patrick: *holding out compass* "This one, sir."

Mr. Krabs: "That's 'West,' Patrick. You're fired again."

1. Story Time With Patrick

Patrick: "It's called the ugly barnacle. Once there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly that everyone died. The end."

Spongebob: "That didn't help at all."


There are literally hundreds of Patrick Star quotes, ranging over 200 episodes. Spongebob Squarepants continues to be one of the best kid shows of all time. While it may be controversial to some, the humor it carries is just too hard to beat.

Whether he is ranting about "wumbo" or asking about mayonnaise, Patrick Star never fails to be the highlight of the show. His humor and complete ignorance of reality is comedy gold, and I am proud to stay that I can still do my Patrick impression that I learned in first grade.
