SpongeBob Meets the Strangler:
This episode starts as SpongeBob is 100% on time in work and Squidward is 12% on time. Then as SpongeBob leaves he begins to pick up papers until he gets tired of picking them up and he screams and all the paperballs fly around him until he notices who's throwing the papers and SpongeBob tells the man that is against the law to litter and then the police comes. The strangler gets arrested and he gets chains added all around his body and draws in the seat of the police car a drawing that looks like SpongeBob and strangles it until he destroys it, and SpongeBob gets frightened for that. Then after that the strangler escapes, SpongeBob decides to find a bodyguard to be protected, but everyone he asks are afraid of the strangler and refuse to help SpongeBob until he is standing in front of a bus stop and he meets a man telling him that he can help SpongeBob.

Then he hires him and they go shopping and the strangler gets impatient. They arrive at SpongeBob's house and SpongeBob tries to find the key to open the house, but stays hours trying to find it until he realized that he had another key below the carpet outside of the house. The strangler gets mad for that, but they finally enter the house and they turn the lights on and SpongeBob's friends made a party for him for having the 100% on-time record in his job and they celebrate. Later, everyone leaves and SpongeBob and the strangler are alone again, but Patrick appears and the strangler tells him that he's the strangler, and Patrick goes running to turn himself in, as SpongeBob's friends throw him another party and the strangler leaves running, and he takes a taxi and an airplane. But SpongeBob follows him everywhere until he falls in jail, and there SpongeBob sees the strangler's photo and realizes that he's not a bodyguard.
