Dying for Pie:
This episode begins with Squidward playing the piano on an island until he taps on a piano key that sounds funny. Squidward looks over to Spongebob who is ringing a bell. Spongebob yells to Squidward "Good morning Squidward!" Squidward alarm clock wakes up in his bed revealing that it was all a dream. He then drives to the Krusty Krab gloomily and walks to his cash register. Mr. Krabs walks in and tells Squidward that it's employee brotherhood day. Unfortunately for Squidward, Mr. Krabs tells him that he has to make the gift himself, but Squidward would rather buy it. Squidward got fed up and left his shift and while he was leaving he heard someone say "Heave-Ho!" It came from a pirate ship with sacks filled with so-called pies. Squidward asked one of the ship's pirate crew members if he could purchase one of their pies. He tells Squidward that it's a bomb. As soon as Squidward said "Aww, that's too bad, I thought they were pies and I wanted to buy one," the pirate comes out and tells Squidward that they were kidding about the bombs and that they cost $25. Squidward bought the pie and put it on Mr. Krabs' desk. Mr. Krabs wanted to see if he made it right, and then went to get some milk. Mr. Krabs tripped and dropped the piece of pie. As soon as the pie hit something, part of the Krusty Krab exploded. Spongebob went to Mr. Krabs' office where the explosion may have occurred. Spongebob saw the pie and read the leaflet that came with it. It says "From Squidward, to Spongebob. Well, here you go." Squidward was telling Mr. Krabs of where he got that pie. They went to where Squidward put the pie and it wasn't there. Spongebob is licking his fingers and then thanks Squidward for giving him the pie. Mr. Krabs tells Squidward that he has until sunset before the pie reaches Spongebob's intestine, and when that happens he will explode. Squidward tries to call a hospital, but the doctor told him that it wouldn't do any good. Squidward decided to set up a part 2 to Spongebob's employee brotherhood day gift. He asks Spongebob "What's the most fun thing you can think of?" Spongebob then takes out a long list of fun things to do. It is called his friendship list. Spongebob and Squidward did a lot of fun ridiculous and dangerous activities together. For their last activity, they watch the sunset with Squidward. Squidward, Spongebob, and a brick wall Squidward built between Spongebob and him watched the sunset together. Spongebob started the countdown for the sunset and Squidward finished counting it. Spongebob then exploded. Squidward cries. Then Spongebob explodes again. The wall topples over Squidward. It turns out that the explosions were a special new trick Spongebob did while blowing bubbles. Squidward became aggrivated to see him alive because he thought Spongebob exploded from the pie. After Squidward told Spongebob that he should have exploded after eating that pie, Spongebob pulled out the exploding pie from his pocket from earlier. He saved it for them to share. Spongebob trips on a rock and the pie lands on Squidward's face. A massive explosion occurs. Squidward: Ouch!
