Spongebob is arguably one of the funniest animated shows around. There are so many moments that can describe adulthood to a T. As I grew up, I learned to understand how Squidward feels. Especially in the episode when Squidward shouldn't have gotten out of the bed. Here are a few of my favorite moments that describe being an adult.
1. You only fail when you stop trying.
"If there's just one piece of advice I can give you, it's this — when there's something you really want, fight for it, don't give up no matter how hopeless it seems."
2. Face life and your fears head-on.
"And the only way to get rid of a shadow is to turn off the lights, to stop running from the darkness and face what you fear, head on."
3. Speak your mind.
"Knowing is better than wondering, waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beats the hell out of never trying."
4. Don't ever forget how to talk to one another.
"Communication. It's the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking the harder it becomes to know what to say or how to ask for what we really need."
5. Life doesn't come with instructions.
“Just when we think we've figured things out, the universe throws us a curve ball. So we have to improvise. We find happiness in unexpected places. We find our way back to the things that matter the most. The universe is funny that way, sometimes it just has a way of making sure we wind up exactly where we belong."
6. Look for the good in everyone.
"Just because people do horrible things... it doesn't always mean they're horrible people."
7. Don't apologize for how you cope.
“I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke."
8. Faith over fear.
“I don't know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you're wrong?"
9. Make mistakes and learn from them.
“We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore."
10. Life isn't about finding yourself; it's about creating yourself.
“At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them."
Below are just a couple of fight scenes to watch if you want to see some badass women beat people up in a choreographed and stylish fashion. The scenes range from wife-versus-mistress to gory assassin battles, so check'em out!
1. Sharon vs Lisa - "Obsessed" (2009)
The wife vs. wannabe-mistress fight that you never knew you wanted. Oh, and who doesn't want to watch Beyoncé beat someone's ass... especially the woman trying to steal her man. This will keep your fist in the air rooting for Beyoncé which is all I've ever dreamed about.
2. Angels vs Madison Lee (feat. Thin Man and Seamus O' Grady) - "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" (2003)
This explosive rooftop battle features Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore is the epitome of a triple threat. They battle in an acrobatic match against Demi Moore's raven-like character "Madison Lee", featuring Justin Theroux as an angry Irishman and the Crispin Glover as the mysterious "thin-man" (whose eyebrows are extra fierce).
3. Tina vs Zack - "Dead or Alive" (2006)
Now, this movie is absolutely atrocious...and I love every minute of it. The sole reason I added this fight to the list is because of the ridiculous sound effects especially at 00:59-1:00 minute... which may be the most terribly satisfying sound effect ever. Jamie Pressly exudes such power through her character Tina, and that's vividly seen in this fight scene.
4. The Operator vs Two Assassins - "The Night Comes For Us" (2018)
WARNING: GORE AND VIOLENCE
This fight scene may not be the easiest to sit through just because it's extremely grotesque and visual, but my god is it so well-done and a chaotic fun time. Julie Estelle plays the operator in a handicap match between two assassins that are just going at each other nonchalantly at hyper speed. The blood, injuries, and sex have no filter in this scene (and movie) which is just peak satisfaction for action lovers.
5. Letty vs Kara - "Furious 7" (2015)
What a glamorous battle that packs one hell of a punch. These queens are hacking at each other wearing gowns, and it's probably the toughest thing I've ever seen. Just watching Ronda Rousey and Michelle Rodriguiez have a full-fledged battle in a high-end, luxurious setting allows this whole scene to come together to be one of the fiercest I've ever scene.
