Role in episode
When the Angry Old Timer sees SpongeBob and Patrick's whirly brains flying above his property, he steals them and places them in a barrel with many other citizens' brains. SpongeBob and Patrick seek Sandy's help to retrieve them. She confronts the Angry Old Timer and returns the stolen brains to the residents of Bikini Bottom. He immediately apologizes to Sandy for his actions and breaks down in tears.
It is revealed that he only stole the whirly brains, because he was jealous and wanted to experience flight. At the end of the episode, SpongeBob and Patrick give their whirly brain propellers to the Angry Old Timer so that he can live his dream.
