In Brief: SpongeBob has a party and invites all his friends.

Story: SpongeBob goes shopping at Barg'N Mart. While buying a can of food he sees a Plan Your Own Party Kit and decides to throw a party. SpongeBob goes home, opens the kit and prepares for the party. He makes a very long scheduled list of how and when everything is going to be done at the party. SpongeBob has the table all set up with the snacks and refreshments.

The party is all ready to start and Patrick is the first to arrive. SpongeBob brings him a glass of punch and they chat about the weather. Mr. Krabs is the second guest. SpongeBob gets angry because Patrick and Mr. Krabs were chatting and not following the scedule. More guests show up including Sandy, Scooter, Plankton, Pearl, etc. SpongeBob hands out topic cards to everyone for discussing.

Next, SpongeBob sits everybody down and reads the newspaper comics to them. He stops and realizes that it's yesterday's paper so SpongeBob goes outside to get the new paper. While outside SpongeBob gets locked out of the house. He knocks on the door but nobody can hear him because of the loud music. SpongeBob then tries to call Patrick from a payphone but he doesn't realize it's SpongeBob. Then, SpongeBob tries to climb through an open window but Larry slams it shut before he can reach it.

SpongeBob gets frustrated and tries to break in. Suddenly, Officer Nancy and her partner pull up. They think he's trying to break in and rob the house. SpongeBob explains to them that this is his house and that he's throwing a party. They believe him and start to walk away. They turn back around and arrest SpongeBob for not inviting them to the party. When SpongeBob gets back home he grabs the key under the mat, which was there the whole time. He goes in and Patrick is still there. He tells SpongeBob it was an awesome party and he needs to throw another one next week.

Song: "Underwater Sun"

Come with me to the land I love

It's not right here, down the street, or up above

It's down below in the deep blue sea

Where SpongeBob lives and the fun is always free

Down, down, down to the bottom of the sea

Where our salty friend SpongeBob waits for you and me

Down, down, down, ah, we'll have lots of fun

You and me forever in the underwater sun

We'll catch some jellyfish if we get a chance

Say hello to Patrick, and do a little dance

Karate-chop Sandy, see Squid get a tan

Eat a Krabby Patty, and foil Plankton's plan

Down, down, down to the bottom of the sea

We'll hook up with SpongeBob and his snail Gary

Down, down, down, ah, we'll have lots of fun

You and me forever in the underwater sun, underwater sun


SpongeBob: So is the punch okay?

Patrick: Not bad. Not bad.

SpongeBob: Nice weather we've been having.

Patrick: It's been rather mild, yes.

Patrick: Kcirtap si eman ym o77eh. I donít get it.

Mr. Krabs: No, you dumb bunny. It says, "My name is Patrick."

Patrick: *shakes hand* Nice to meet you, Patrick.

Mr. Krabs: *laughs* Good one, Patrick.

Mr. Krabs: *reading cards* What does yours say, Plankton?

Plankton: *really says 'Where Are You From?'* Oh, uh, it says, 'Discuss the secret ingredient of the Krabby Patty formula.' How interesting.
