In Brief: Mr. Krabs has a contest between SpongeBob and Squidward to see who can memorize the most customer's names.

Story: Mr. Krabs laughs as he reads a book in his office. SpongeBob and Squidward come in. SpongeBob asks Mr. Krabs if it's an exciting book and Mr. Krabs says yes and rambles on with a long explanation. He tells them that if you call all the customers by name they'll come back more often. Squidward isn't interested so Mr. Krabs turns it into a contest. He tells them whoever can memorize the most customer's names wins a prize. Mr. Krabs holds up a brochure advertising a luxurious vacation. Squidward is excited about winning the tropical getaway and thinks he has an advantage because SpongeBob is trapped in the kitchen all day.

Squidward walks up to a female customer and asks her if he could get her anything. She asks him when he ever gave two shrimps about customer service. SpongeBob goes around saying hello to all the customers by name. Squidward asks SpongeBob to take a look at the cash register because he thinks it's broken. He tells SpongeBob he needs a closer look and shoves him into it. While SpongeBob's stuck in the cash register Squidward goes up to another fish and asks his name. SpongeBob squeezes out of a mustard bottle and says hello to the customer, once again calling him by name. Squidward takes the mustard bottle, sets it on the ground outside and stomps on it sending SpongeBob soaring away. Just then a fish walks in and is about to say his name when SpongeBob pops up from under his hat and finishes his sentence.

Squidward grabs SpongeBob and asks him how he knows all these names. He tells Squidward he compiles a list of all the names in a book and he holds the book up. Squidward grabs the book and jumps from table to table saying everyone's names. Squidward excitedly asks Mr. Krabs if he has won but he tells Squidward he wasn't keeping score. Mr. Krabs tells him the last customer will be the tie breaker. Even SpongeBob doesn't know his name. Squidward shoves SpongeBob out of the way and runs over to the customer. He asks the man his name but the guy just says "What's it to ya?" Squidward tells him he's gonna enter his name in a sweepstakes. The man just yells the same thing again and tells Squidward to leave him alone. Squidward tells the customer he forgot his soda and procedes to spill it all over him. He takes the man's jacket off and checks it for his I.D. The customer tells Squidward he doesn't need his help and leaves.

Squidward follows the man out the door. He tells him to look in the sky cause a giant meteor his hurtling towards earth. While the man is distracted Squidward reaches into his jacket, takes his wallet and runs off with it. The man goes chasing after Squidward demanding he give his wallet back. Squidward runs past a policeman and he notices that he ran through a stop sign. Both the customer and the policeman chase Squidward. The man tells the policeman Squidward stole his wallet. Squidward runs up a ladder to the top of a building. The men reach the top and try to get the wallet from Squidward. The wallet rips and Squidward grabs the license. He surprisingly reads that the name on the license reads "Mr. What Zit Tooya." The policeman hits Squidward with his nightstick and handcuffs him. Squidward tries to explain he didn't intentionally do anything wrong but he takes him off to jail.

Squidward sits in his jailcell crossing a day off of his calender. SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs come to visit him. Mr. Krabs tells Squidward to enjoy his prize and hands him the brochure. Squidward gleefully exclaims that he's excited about his Tropical vacation. Mr. Krabs explains he never said anything about a vacation. He tells Squidward the prize is just the brochure because it was taking up too much room in his drawer. They leave and SpongeBob tells him he'll see him outside in ten years. Squidward laughs crazily and tears up his brochure. He tells himself at least he'll have some peace and quiet. Patrick sits across the room in the same cell as Squidward. He asks him if he wants to play Parcheesi. Squidward it so upset he falls apart.

Song: (none)


Squidward: Hey, SpongeBob. Could you take a look in the cash register? I think it's broken.

SpongeBob: Oh, sure, Squidward.

Squidward: I think you might need a closer look. Let me give you a hand. *shoves SpongeBob into the cash register*

SpongeBob: I can't see anything in here, Squidward.

Squidward: Oh well, at least I'll have some peace and quiet for the next ten years.

Patrick: *sitting in the same cell* Hey, Squidward. Parcheesi?


Address Mr. What Zit Tooya's address is 150 Shell St. according to his driver's license.

Squidward's Jail Sentence Squidward got 10 years in jail for stealing the wallet. That's very strict!

Patrick in jail This ends similiar to "SpongeBob Meets the Strangler" where Patrick ends up in prison for an unknown reason.
