Squidward, about to eat his lunch at the Krusty Krab, is disgusted by the food served there, as Patrick eats a lot of food in one bite. Right before taking his lunch, Mr. Krabs confiscates it by saying that lunches brought from home are prohibited. Mr. Krabs asks Squidward that he's going on a date and he's gonna use a tanning booth. Mr. Krabs checks Squidward's lunch and found a box dried kelp strips, a bottle of reduced fat sea water, and a ice cream sandwich which he begins to eat it. He starts using his tanning booth, starts to take off shell, and spins the ice cream sandwich as a basketball. The ice cream sandwich stops which it lands on Mr. Krabs shell and begins to melt.
SpongeBob makes a krabby patty for his best friend Patrick, but he heard Mr. Krabs in his office say "Oh man, it's hot here" he thinks that his air conditioner is malfunctioning. SpongeBob and Patrick came inside of Mr. Krab's office to think Mr. Krabs died from melting. The real Mr. Krabs is in his tanning booth. SpongeBob explains that Mr. Krabs is dead, but Squidward said that he's an only shell. Now SpongeBob had an idea, so they go to the Chum Bucket to ask Plankton for his chum as organs so they can make Mr. Krab's shell back to life. Patrick puts the chum inside of Mr. Krab's shell, and use his socks to make electricity. So they can save the date with Mrs. Puff.
