Squidward, we don’t need television. Not as long as we have our imagination.
In today’s lessons we go under the scene. We will be learning from three clips from different episodes.
Just when I thought they couldn’t get any stupider.
Hey, just before we jump into learning with this clip. I wanted to let you know that if you are new here, every single week we make fun lessons just like this one so that you can learn and understand fast-speaking natives without getting lost, without missing the jokes and without subtitles.
On this 20 minute clip you will learn terms and phrases such as:
easy, easy, easy let me get this straight, use of hyphens, the term”pretty” as in “pretty big” or “pretty small”, pretty smart” , “quite a plan”, patty

A patty is a piece of food (normally meat) made into a disc shape that is then cooked. Patties are what go in burgers. Crabby can refer to a crab, this animal that lives in the ocean. or it can refer to a person that is kind of annoying. Example: He is a crabby old man.
If someone says something intentionally funny, such as a joke, you say to them, that’s a good one.
By the way, Squidward has the word squid in it, which is what we call the animal that is close to an octopus.
We see the verbs taste and HAVE being used to refer to the same thing: To eat.
To taste refers to the sensation of flavor in the mouth. While it probably means you also ate the food, it give you more the idea of trying it.
To have and eat can also be used interchangeably. They have the same application. However
There are certain situations when you would prefer saying HAVE, for example at the restaurant when placing an order. “I’ll have a cheeseburger”.
