Continuity mistake: When Spongebob and Patrick approach the county line, they meet the two laughing fish; one is short and fat, one tall, thin and has two patches on his knees. These patches disappear in one shot; when the short fat one is bouncing on the other one's stomach and they're both laughing.

Question: In the part where all the fish are brainwashed, how come Sandy got brainwashed when she is wearing a helmet? (01:33:05 - 02:13:10)
