In Brief: SpongeBob & Squidward delivery a pizza to a customer.

Story: It's after closing time and Squidward wants to go home but SpongeBob is still cleaning tables. Just then the phone rings and Squidward answers it. He tells the customer that they're closed but Mr. Krabs takes the phone and wants to know what the customer wants. He orders a pizza and Mr. Krabs makes it and tells Squidward to delivery it to him. Squidward wants SpongeBob to go but Mr. Krabs tells him that he can go with him.

Outside, SpongeBob is doing a check of the boat before they go. After the inspection, Squidward tells SpongeBob to back the boat up. SpongeBob, as his usual nervous self when it comes to boatmobiles, goes into reverse all the way into the middle of nowhere. Nothing could go worse until Squidward kicks the boat and it drives forward without them. So, they deliver it on foot.

As they are delivering it on foot, they grow weary and tired. SpongeBob keeps singing a song about the Krusty Krab Pizza. Squidward tells SpongeBob to let go of the pizza during a sand storm. Once a tornado lifts them up in the air, Squidward tells him to hang on to it. Once the tornado spits them out, they are lost because there is no more road but SpongeBob knows the way because of the moss. Squidward goes the opposite direction.

On their journey to try and find the way back home, they are getting hungry. Squidward tells SpongeBob that they need to eat something. SpongeBob tells him that the pioneers used to eat coral then he changes it to a few other things before Squidward tells him to give him the pizza. But instead of just taking it, Squidward tries to trick SpongeBob into just checking the pizza and seeing if it is still good. It doesn't work. So, Squidward chases SpongeBob until SpongeBob sees a giant rock that the pioneers used to use to drive.

Squidward and SpongeBob are now on the rock arriving at the customer's house. SpongeBob rings the doorbell and the customer takes the pizza but soon complains because he did not get the drink he ordered. He refuses to pay for the pizza and closes the door in SpongeBob's face. This angers Squidward so he goes up the customer's house and shoves the pizza in his face, telling him it's on the house. After that, Squidward tells SpongeBob to take him home but SpongeBob drives backwards on the rock to the Krusty Krab.

Song: "Krusty Krab Pizza"

Spongebob: The Krusty Krab Pizza is the pizza for you and me

The Krusty Krab Pizza is the pizza

Squidward: And my feet are killing me

Spongebob: The Krusty Krab Pizza is the pizza for you and me

The Krusty Krab Pizza is the pizza, free delivery

The Krusty Krab Pizza is the pizza, very tasty

(later) The Krusty Krab Pizza is the pizza, absolutivally

(scat) Pizza...

Krusty Kra-ya-ya-yab, pizza, is the pizza, yeah, for you and...meee!


Squidward: Mr. Krabs, we don't serve pizza. *Mr. Krabs gets a plate of krabby patties and turns it into pizza* We don't deliver.

Mr. Krabs: We don't deliver, but you do.

Squidward: Can't you just get Spongebob to do it?

Mr. Krabs: Great idea! Take him with you. *Spongebob sneaks over smiling big*

Squidward: That's not what I had in mind!

Squidward: Will you let go of that stupid pizza, already?

SpongeBob: I can't. It's for the customer.

Squidward: Who cares about the customer?

SpongeBob: I do!

Squidward: Well, I don't!

SpongeBob: *gasps* Squidward.
