Spongebob is outside his house when he recieves his paper and takes the rubberband off the newspaper and places it halfway between his body. Patrick comes by and he has done the same thing with his body and they both leave to go to their houses. They both hear a little squeaking and they get upset with each other. Patrick and Spongebob look on the ground and find a baby clam and decide to raise it by themselves.
They decide that they would be the mother and father of the baby clam. Spongebob decides to be the mom while Patrick is the father. Patrick wanted to be the mother, but Spongebob said that all of Patrick's fat wouldn't help. They then decide to start working on their parenting tasks.
Patrick starts going to work and leaves Spongebob at home with the baby clam, Junior. Everyday Spongebob is working so hard vacuuming, holding Junior, ironing, and cooking. When Patrick comes home he says that he would help Spongebob take care of Junior, but fails to do anything to help Spongebob out around the house. Patrick said that he would come home early to come and help Spongebob around the house. Instead of coming home early Patrick comes back at midnight and Spongebob comes out in a nightgown and is upset with him.
Patrick is upset with Spongebob and they have a big argument until Patrick says he is going to go back to work. Patrick walked to his rock and turned on the TV. Spongebob followed him and asked him if that is what he called his job, watching TV. Patrick said that it was very hard to do because sometimes his butt itches or he has to move the antenna. They start yelling at each other until they see that Junior was about to fall out of the window and they make up and try to save him. They are too late to save Junior, but Junior ends up flying because he was all grown up. Junior flies away into the wild and Patrick says that he and Spongebob should have another baby.
