In Brief: A giant Alaskan Bull Worm attacks Bikini Bottom.

Story: Late at night, while SpongeBob is sleeping the ground starts to rumble and shake. SpongeBob is woken up. His sheets and pillows are pulled away and eaten and the whole outside of SpongeBob's house is torn off. The next day at the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob announces that an Alaskan Bull Worm is attacking the town. Several of the towns people complain that the worm has eaten some of their things and they discuss what they should do about it. Sandy explains that she is going to go after the bull worm because he stole her tail. Sandy goes off to find the worm and everybody cheers. Later, everyone is seen trying to push Bikini Bottom somewhere else, after Patrick suggests it.

SpongeBob runs after Sandy to stop her because he think it's to dangerous to try to stop the Alaskan Bull Worm. Sandy explains to SpongeBob that what he thinks is big and what she thinks is big are two totally different things. SpongeBob tries several things to get Sandy to slow down but she keeps on going for it. After walking a while Sandy finds a worm sign and then an entrance to, what she thinks, is a cave. She goes in and begins to beat up the worm and ties it in a knot. After Sandy comes out of the cave SpongeBob tells her that wasn't the worm, that's just his tounge. The cave was the worm.

The Alaskan Bull Worm is very angry and begins to chase SpongeBob and Sandy. While they're running away SpongeBob tells Sandy to admit that she was wrong about the worm being to tough. Sandy hesitates at first but finally admits to it. Sandy takes a paper clip and string from SpongeBob and uses it as a rope to swing themselves onto the worms back. Suddenly, the worm begins to fall down a cliff. SpongeBob and Sandy manage to run off in time and the worm falls to the ground below. He lands right on the town, where Patrick and the rest of the citizens had moved it.

Song: (none)


Fish: We should lock our doors.

Old Woman: We should call my nephew.

Knight: We should dig a moat.

Patrick: We should take Bikini Bottom and push it somewhere else!

Squidward: That idea might just be crazy enough. . .to get us all killed!

SpongeBob: Sandy, I saw it! It's big, scary, and pink!

Sandy: So is Patrick's belly button, but I ain't afraid of that neither!

Sandy: SpongeBob, what is the matter with you? Now, I'm gonna go give that legless rascal what-for, and there ain't nothing you can say to stop me!

SpongeBob: Oh yeah? What if I said.... 'blargen fedibble no-hip'?

Sandy: Well, I gotta admit, that slowed me down, but I'm still going for him!


Missing Rooms? When the outside walls of SpongeBob's house are torn off we can see the whole inside. The only two rooms are the living room and bedroom. The kitchen and bathroom are missing.

Wormy This episode is similar to Wormy, when SpongeBob thinks Sandy's worm (which turned into a butterfly) is attacking the town.

Spoof This is a spoof of the movie "Tremors".

Sandy's Tail When Sandy found her tail it was tied to her, but when they are riding the worm her tail is back to normal.
