In Brief: Squidward turns incredibly handsome after SpongeBob causes trauma to his face.

Story: At the Krusty Krab, Squidward waits on a customer but is interupted by SpongeBob and Patrick singing in the kitchen. He yells through the ordering window and tells them he's trying to work in a fast food restuarant and that SpongeBob should try it sometime. Squidward's temper and blood pressure are rising as they continue to annoy him. All of a sudden, SpongeBob flings open the kitchen door and bashes Squidward in the face. SpongeBob is still singing. Squidward grabs his nose and tells SpongeBob he broke his face and needs a doctor. At the hospital Squidward gets surgery as SpongeBob paces back and forth, eating hats. Dr. Gilliam opens the door. SpongeBob asks him if Squidward is gonna be okay. The doctor tries to tell him but SpongeBob interupts him with his crying. Gill Gilliam informs SpongeBob they won't know how he will be for two weeks.

SpongeBob comes in the hospital in the morning to visit Squidward and the nurse greets him. Dr. Gilliam tells SpongeBob he can't be in the room because he's gonna remove Squidward's bandages and he made him swear to keep him away. SpongeBob promises to stay out of the way. The doctor takes out some scissors and is ready to cut the bandages when SpongeBob interupts him. Gilliam continues when SpongeBob interupts again. He does this two more times with the brain monitor and TV. SpongeBob interupts one final time to apologize for interupting so many times. The bandages are all removed and after Dr. Gilliam sees Squidward's new face he faints. Squidward asks SpongeBob how he looks while the nurse comes in and melts when she sees how good looking he is. SpongeBob hands Squidward a mirror so he can see what he looks like. Squidward is very pleased.

SpongeBob and Squidward walk down the street. Everybody is taking notice of Squidward's handsome new looks. Female fish and even male fish are fainting and swooning over him. They are even crashing. An old lady in a wheel chair gets up and walks, a blind man can see and a fat kid fish starts to fly but his shoe is untied and he falls. A young woman asks him for his autograph. A limousine pulls up to pick up Squidward. The limo stops at Squidward's house while the crowds continues to cheer for him. Squidward goes in the house and goes to bed and the crowd cheers for him all night and into the next morning. Squidward greets the people good morning but they rip his shirt. He decides to start playing the clarinet for the people but a guy ends up stealing it. Finally, Squidward goes to take a bath but a big female fish with 4 eyes pop out of the water. The crowd just won't leave him alone so he jumps out of his window and runs over to SpongeBob's house.

SpongeBob and Squidward run down to the Krusty Krab. They run inside quickly and try to stop the mob from getting in the front door. Mr. Krabs thinks all the people are customers and he tell them to line up and offers to let everybody touch Squidward for a fee. Squidward begs SpongeBob to slam him in the face with the door again to get his face back to normal. SpongeBob tells Squidward he can't hurt him on purpose. SpongeBob finally decides to do it and starts slamming Squidward in the face with the door, harder and harder. Squidward starts to appear like his old self again. SpongeBob hits Squidward too much and makes him look even more different than he did before. Suddenly, a shoe comes through the roof of the Krusty Krab and is about to hit Squidward. SpongeBob pushes him out of the way of the shoe, but right into a pole. This instantly turns Squidward back to normal. The crowd turns around and leaves the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs, desperate to get them back starts beating Squidward repeatedly with the door again.

Song: "Squidward Had a Krabby Patty"

Squidward had a Krabby Patty,

Krabby Patty, Krabby Patty.

Squidward had a Krabby Patty

whose buns were white as snow.

Squidward had a Krabby Patty,

Krabby Patty, Krabby Patty.

Squidward had a Krabby Patty

whose buns were white as snow.


Squidward: Do you mind? I'm trying to work in a fast food restaurant. You might want to try it sometime!

SpongeBob: I'm sure, Squidward, that sounds...

Patrick: Oh wait a minute, SpongeBob. You already work at a fast food restaurant.

SpongeBob: Oh, yeah!

SpongeBob and Patrick: Yay!

Squidward: Remind me to fire my therapist.

Mr. Krabs: *customers leave after Squidward turns back to his old self* Hey! Where you going? Don't leave me. Please I'm beggin' ya! Look I can make him handsome again. Watch! *slams the door in Squidward's face repeatedly* See, he's getting handsome. It just takes a little effort, just a little elbow grease. Please! Come back....!!!
