At work one day, SpongeBob cries again over something ridiculous. Squidward tells SpongeBob that he cries too much. SpongeBob says he doesn't, but then Squidward shows him a video of how much he cries. Squidward then challenges SpongeBob to not cry for the rest of the day, and that if he fails then he has to not talk to him for a year. SpongeBob agrees, and tells Squidward that if he wins then he has to have a slumber party with him. Squid agrees to the bet. At SpongeBob's house, Squidward does many things to make SpongeBob cry, including telling SpongeBob about his parents writing to him, and watching about a cat being stuck in a tree for example, but they're all happily resolved. Then, Squidward tells Spongebob a bedtime story that involves a sad barnacle getting lost from all his other barnacle friends. This comes very close to making Spongebob cry, however he holds it in and then it's midnight! Spongebob wins! SpongeBob then lets out all of is tears, and as they go to sleep, Squidward cries.
