In an effort to get away from SpongeBob and Patrick's craziness, Squidward moved into a neighborhood of people just like him: sarcastic, arts-minded misanthropes. Turns out, he couldn't stand those people either, so it looks like he's doomed to never be happy no matter where he lives.

Can anyone explain why Squidward always seems to explode when he hits the ground? Is his body made of dynamite? Because in yet another episode, he falls off a cliff and blows to pieces the moment he reaches the bottom. That's some rotten luck.

Pie bomb Squidward.

Pie bomb Squidward. is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The Most Depressing Squidward Moments

In this episode, Squidward buys a pie from pirates to give to SpongeBob, except it's not a pie at all — it's a bomb. He spends the entire episode trying to save SpongeBob from exploding, only to realize that he hasn't eaten the pie yet. SpongeBob then trips while carrying it and the pie bomb explodes in Squidward's face. Figures.
