Episode Recap

Best Day Ever:

The episode starts out with the song, "Best Day Ever." Afterward, SpongeBob's "best day ever" doesn't turn out as he planned when he has to postpone his activities to help his friends with their problems. He wanted to work at the Krusty Krab, have some karate with Sandy, go jellyfishing with Patrick using his new high-tech jellyfishing net, and then go to Squidward's clarinet concert. First he ran over to the Krusty Krab, only to find that it was condemned due to a severe nematode infestation. Spongebob led them away by playing the flute on his nose, which caused them to become hypnotized and fall asleep, like the story of the Pied Piper. He then goes to Sandy's treedome for karate, but Sandy says that she is too busy with a leak in her dome that is letting water in. Spongebob fixes it with his sticky karate glove. Afterwards, he heads over to Jellyfish Fields to go jellyfishing with Patrick, but Patrick broke his net, and then broke SpongeBob's old net. Spongebob gives Patrick his brand-new net. SpongeBob meets up with Squidward, who says that he can't play in the concert because his clarinet reed is shot. SpongeBob pulls out one of his teeth to replace the reed. Finally, SpongeBob goes to Squidward's concert, but the doorman won't let him in without a ticket, which he doesn't have. He tries various methods of sneaking in such as a fake Spongebob marionette as a distraction, and cutting through the ceiling, but at last he is let in because he is on the VIP list. However, he gets in right as the concert is over. He is very mad that everything went wrong and gives a long and elaborate speech about how his Best Day Ever got ruined. But then, his friends tell him about how SpongeBob helped them with their problems out of his kindness and teach him it's not about "perfect days", it's about having friends. But to make it up to him, they hold a production in which SpongeBob preforms his song, "The Best Day Ever," to complete his real Best Day Ever with his friends by his side.After a few hours Spongebob is still singing, but his friends are tired and sleepy.
