Yeah, Squidward was actually pretty cool here.
Squidward always acted annoyed and 'too adult' but knowing now what I didn't back as a kid he's incredibly relatable. He longs for a carefree life in his parameters but is constantly reminded of Spongebobs carefree innocence he can't ever have back due to his jaded cynicism. What Squidward would need is amnesia and a restart to ever get to Spongebobs level
Remember that scene with the has slashing slasher? Squidward admitted he secretly likes Spongebob. Spongebob on the other hand, used Squids clarinet to unclog his toilet.
"ate the whole thing in one bite"
Yeah the title is not relatable. Either you have friends or not. If someone is bad to you, he/she aint your friend.
