The episode starts with SpongeBob spraying mustard for the customers, including spraying a mustard man for Nancy Suzy Fish. Eventually, SpongeBob runs out and attempts to get more. However, the cabinet for mustard only has Mr. Krabs, who gets upset for running out of mustard and demands SpongeBob, Squidward (and Patrick) to go to the Mustard Mines to get more mustard. However, Walter Haddock warns them that the mines is a dangerous place and states that whoever went into the mines never got out (although Walter himself is still alive).
At the mines, Squidward has SpongeBob and Patrick follow him as they sing a song while erratically bouncing around in the cave, eventually causing rocks to block the entrance. Squidward is angry with them for trapping them as they realize their fault and Patrick freaks out before he faints, but SpongeBob and Squidward awakes him up with a Krabby Patty. Squidward tends to Patrick who excitedly asks for mustard on the patty and an annoyed Squidward drops him on his head and walks on top of him because of his idiocy.
As they continue in the mines, the trio only find diamonds, gold, and soon a telephone. Mr. Krabs calls the payphone as SpongeBob answers and tells him that the customers has gone wild for the lack of mustard. Squidward then mines through a wall and finds a subway to the condiment mines.
After SpongeBob finally strikes mustard, the trio is now happy and starts to dance and sing yet another song. However, Walter comes back saying that the mustard will eventually blow upwards and then corks up the mustard and beats up Squidward as SpongeBob and Patrick foolishly believe that this was the point. Patrick then fights back Walter, and his head hurts Walter's hand and sends Patrick flying around until he lands on the cork. Patrick is stupidly disappointed in hurting Walter and thinks he lost before his landing causes the mustard to start to erupt. While Walter freaks out as he escapes but then rides on an escalator, SpongeBob tries to continue blocking the mustard from erupting. Mr. Krabs calls again, still wanting mustard as the customers are now angry.
Eventually, the mustard erupts like a geyser and fills the Krusty Krab. The episode ends with the real mummy asking for relish on his Krabby Patty.

- The text design on the title card is similar to that of "Greasy Buffoons," but darker yellow.
- When this episode first aired, it was paired up with "Ink Lemonade."
- This episode reveals that the Krusty Krab gets its mustard, ketchup, hot sauce, and mayo from the Mustard Mine.
- The face that SpongeBob makes after tasting the mustard is similar to the one face in "Can You Spare a Dime?" when SpongeBob says, "What could be better than serving up smiles?"
- This is the last episode to premiere before Cyma Zarghami, the former president of Nickelodeon, stepped down from the company on June 4, 2018.
- This episode premiered sixteen years after "Wet Painters" and "Krusty Krab Training Video" premiered, and one year after SpongeBob Comics No. 68 was released.
- This episode takes place after "Squidward's School for Grown-Ups" because Squidward is seen high-fiving SpongeBob and Patrick since Squidward has learned Grown-ups can high five.
- This episode contains several possible references to The Three Stooges:
- The music over the title card is the popular song "Listen to the Mocking Bird," which was played in the opening credits of the early Stooge shorts. Later, when SpongeBob strikes mustard, he, Patrick and Squidward gleefully sing to the tune of it.
- When SpongeBob and Patrick are first shown venturing into the mines, they sing to the tune of the folk song "A-Hunting We Will Go." This was normally sung by the Stooges when engaging in some task or going on an adventure.
- The two escalators in the Mustard Mines are a reference to the two escalators in the state of Wyoming.
- It is not possible that so much pressure can be contained by a relatively thin layer of rock.
- After the prospector leaves, all the mustard that was on Patrick is gone.
- When Mr. Krabs asks SpongeBob if he used up all the mustard, in the background, a tube of mustard is shown next to mayo.
- When someone gets on the escalator, they become calm.
