Episode Recap

Sandy's Rocket:
SpongeBob comes to visit Sandy and is shocked to find out she has a rocket! After some convincing she finally agrees to let him go. Later that night Patrick comes and says he will need protection from aliens with a special spray he just bought. Though originally saying no since Sandy said there are no such things as aliens, he eventually convinces him. SpongeBob says they only need to spray outside the rocket, but Patrick goes in! After playing with some buttons they have and argument over which button makes the rocket start. SpongeBob then pushes the button he thinks is it and the rocket starts! After flying right by the moon (and having a little fun with lack of gravity) they crash back down to Bikini Bottom, however SpongeBob thinks its the moon and prepares for some alien-catching. Patrick notices Gary and tries to be friendly to him, however SpongeBob says the aliens are trying to trick them and that Gary is really an alien. Suddenly he takes out Sandy moonrock catcher and captures Gary! This causes them to think if they catch a whole bunch of aliens they will impress Sandy. Next they go to Squidward's house. Then they see Mr. Krabs walking Mr. Doodles and snatch up him. Then they go to Mrs. Puff's Boating School and get her. Then we them jaming all of Bikini Bottom's citizens into the spaceship. Meanwhile Sandy is on the moon to look for them and when realizing they're no one to be found she goes back to Bikini Bottom where SpongeBob and Patrick mistake her for an alien and catch her! Thinking they have everyone they are about to leave when both of them think the other is also an alien! Ready to aim, Patrick accidentally shoots himself, therefore catching him! SpongeBob flies up, but instead of Bikini Bottom, they end up on the moon, causing him to realize his mistake. The episode ends with all the Bikini Bottomites saying "SpongeBob, us aliens would like a word with you!"

Squeaky Boots:
It's Mr. Krab's daughter's Pearl's birthday and her big gift from her father: a pair of old rubber boots! She immediately rejects them, causing Mr. Krabs to find a new owner. The next day he tricks SpongeBob into taking them and giving him his paycheck for them by saying they belonged to the greatest fry cook ever. He is delighted to get rid of them however soon there constant squeaking (that even makes Squidward take a vacation) makes him realize he must get rid of them. He sneaks in to SpongeBob's house and takes the boots. The next SpongeBob comes to work and is devastated by the fact that lost the boots. Mr. Krabs isn't that worried however when everybody's voices starts sounding like squeaks he goes crazy, tears the floorboard out, takes the boots, shrinks them and then eats them. Then he gives SpongeBob back his paycheck and says he needs a vacation. Later Mr. Krabs is seen in his car driving with Pearl happy that the squeaking is over, however then he starts hiccuping!
