In Brief: SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs think they've killed a Health Inspector.

Story: While Mr. Krabs is taking a bath in a tub full of money a health inspector pulls up to the Krusty Krab. He runs and tells SpongeBob to get everything in order so he'll pass the inspection. Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob serve everything on the menu to the Inspector. After he eats it all he says he needs one more patty before he can pass the inspection. Before SpongeBob brings it to him a news broadcast comes on saying that there's a guy pretending to be a health inspector in order to get free food.

Mr. Krabs gets furious and decides to get revenge. SpongeBob helps him make a nasty, tainted krabby patty to serve him. They do all kinds of disgusting things, like drop it in the toilet and put toenail clippings on it. SpongeBob gives the Inspector the patty. Before he has a chance to eat it a fly goes down his throat and chokes him. He falls down and hits his head on the table, knocking him unconcious. SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs, who are watching from the kitchen think that the patty has killed him. They start arguing and blame each other. Mr. Krabs decides they need to take the body out and bury it.

SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs drag the body out to a secluded spot. SpongeBob starts to dig a hole as the Health Inspector wakes up. He throws a rock behind his back and knocks him out again. As they're walking back down the hill, two police officers pull up and offer Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob a ride. At the same time the hard rain has caused the body to wash down the hill. SpongeBob quickly stuffs the Inspector into the trunk before the cops notice.

Back at the Krusty Krab SpongeBob stuffs the Inspector into his hat to sneak him by the police. He drags the body back to the freezer. The police get a call about two gouls burying a body. Before they leave Officer Nancy wants ice and walks back towards the freezer. She opens the door and the Health Inspector walks out. The police hit him in the head, thinking he's a zombie. He holds up a paper saying that the Krusty Krab has passed inspection. Everybody cheers and goes to eat some krabby patties. The freezer door slams and bangs the Inspector in the head.
