It is an normal day at the Krusty Krab, until an overweight bass named Bubble Bass comes along and then makes a very tricky order. SpongeBob quickly serves him, but then Bubble Bass complains about there being no pickles on the patty, much to SpongeBob’s horror.
Mr. Krabs takes it out of his pay because Bubble Bass reads the microscopic print below the menu that says: “Money Back Guarantee” on it. SpongeBob loses his confidence (and his mind), and cannot remember how to do anything. Mr. Krabs tells him to go home and get some rest. He has Squidward take over the grill, which leads to disaster, with Squidward burning all the food (including milkshakes) and driving away customers.
Mr. Krabs is worried about losing money, so he goes to SpongeBob’s house, where everything is mixed up (such as eggs being nailed to the walls). The music and SpongeBob’s speech are both mixed up too. Mr. Krabs explains to SpongeBob that if he remembers how to make a Krabby Patty, he will be back in order. It takes days, but SpongeBob eventually learns how to make a Krabby Patty properly again (unintentionally due to believing he could not do it.)
He returns to the Krusty Krab, where Bubble Bass confronts him again. SpongeBob serves him his meal confidently, but Bubble Bass announces again that there are no pickles. However, SpongeBob reveals that Bubble Bass has been hiding the pickles under his tongue the whole time to avoid paying, as well as Shubie’s car keys. Bubble Bass runs away, and everyone cheers at SpongeBob’s return. SpongeBob then wants three cheers for Squidward for taking his place while he was gone. However, the crowds jeers instead of cheers, but SpongeBob assumes they’re cheering. The last jeer then goes: “Boo, you stink!” before the episode ends.
