In Brief: SpongeBob becomes the hall monitor of the day.

Story: At the boating school, Mrs. Puff is choosing a hall monitor for the day. She goes down her list and sees that SpongeBob is the only one that hasn't been the hall monitor yet. She quickly goes down the list and calls everyone elses name but no one else wants to do it. So, she is forced to give SpongeBob the job. SpongeBob is ecastic and gives a big speech to the class. When the bell rings, everyone rushes out and runs over SpongeBob. Mrs. Puff tells SpongeBob that he can at least wear the uniform until tomorrow.

While on patrol, SpongeBob spots a few mistakes that he must correct around town. The first was a broken traffic light. He directs the traffic but aftewards, the traffic is all in a jam. Every car has crashed into each other.

The next thing SpongeBob noticed was an open window. He jumped inside of the house and scared the couple inside. He told them that they should learn a valuable lesson from this.

After this, SpongeBob noticed ice cream on the ground. He was going to look for the culprit behind this but he was right above him. The culprit was none other than Patrick. He was eating an ice cream cone. After SpongeBob tells Patrick that he is a criminal, Patrick wants to be good again so he becomes SpongeBob's deputy. They get a couple of ice cream's before they get an alert about a maniac in Bikini Bottom terrorizing the town.

When it becomes nighttime, Patrick can see the maniac and he radios SpongeBob but he cannot see it. When Patrick tells him the coordinates of where he is at, SpongeBob says he is right on top of him. Wherever SpongeBob goes, the maniac is there. After running around, SpongeBob then finds a flyer of the maniac and notices it's really him. The police arrive and tell him that they are taking him for the 'confession' he just gave. Just then Mrs. Puff arrives and tells the police that she gave him the uniform in the first place. That landed her in jail. The next class session, she tells SpongeBob to see her after class...six months from now.
