“Squidward, slide whistling is more than just simply tooting on an instrument! It's a way of life! Let's show him Patrick.”

"Slide Whistle Stooges" is the second segment of the fifth episode of season 6, and it is paired with "The Splinter." In this episode, SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward play with slide whistles, annoying everyone in town.



Squidward is doing his morning routine, but he hears a slide whistle sound whenever he does an action. He finds out the sound is coming from SpongeBob and Patrick playing with slide whistles. They continue to play the slide whistles constantly as Squidward does everyday things.

Eventually, he gets so aggravated after hearing slide whistles as he's turning pages of a book that he runs out of his house, only for SpongeBob and Patrick to follow him with their slide whistles. After a long chase, Squidward tries to annoy them with a slide whistle, but they enjoy and dance to it.

SpongeBob compliments him on his "music," so the three play with slide whistles together. They play around with a cashier at the Barg N' Mart with their slide whistles. Later, they go into town, where Squidward starts annoying the citizens with his slide whistle antics, and they riot against him.

They corner him while he's on top of a building, but he uses the slide whistle to safely get onto a gasoline truck. He annoys the driver with his slide whistle enough to make him get out of the vehicle, and Squidward takes the wheel. He accidentally destroys the Chum Bucket and the Krusty Krab, and then goes up a ramp through a ring of fire.

Patrick drives SpongeBob near Squidward to warn him about the cliff up ahead, but he falls down from it and explodes before he can realizes what he's talking about. At the hospital, the slide whistle is lodged in Squidward's throat but can communicate with it, so SpongeBob and Patrick play with slide whistles throughout the hospital to help Squidward out.
