Squidward wakes up one morning to find SpongeBob out on his lawn screaming loudly. Squidward yells at him and tells him that he isn't normal. Feeling this is true, SpongeBob makes a vow that he will become normal and therefore rents a DVD about How to Become Normal and watches. The next day, Squidward asks the fry cook to make a patty. Without a word, SpongeBob hands Squidward the patty, and continues to stay as silent as possible. When Squidward walks into the kitchen, SpongeBob is not working at the stove. But instead, he's working at the computer. SpongeBob tells Squidward that from now on he is normal. This makes Squidward excited, but Mr. Krabs angry. After SpongeBob explains how the computer will help print patties faster, Mr. Krabs now puts more faith in his fry cook. This continues for three weeks. And then, after those weeks have past, SpongeBob has made a dramatic change to an oval with absolutely no holes or freckles. Even though the patties cook faster, Mr. Krabs becomes mad when he discovers that they were cooked on paper. He then forces SpongeBob to go and not return until he agrees to cook patties like he did before. SpongeBob goes to hang out with his best friend, but Patrick tells SpongeBob that he's no fun. SpongeBob then visits Squidward, but that just makes Squidward annoyed when SpongeBob tries to make Squidward normal. Realizing that he no longer wants to be normal, SpongeBob tries to return back to his old self. Unfortunately, he can't do that, so he goes to Patrick, who offers to help him. They do a bunch of silly stuff, and slowly, but surely, he begins to transform back to normal. But later, just as he's about to fully go back to normal, he goes back to normal SpongeBob. Now both of them cry over how SpongeBob will never return back to normal. But when Squidward reveals his normal self, it scares him back to silly SpongeBob. SpongeBob then thanks Squidward for helping go back to un-normal. Then the episode ends with SpongeBob laughing and Squidward being normal.
