SpongeBob and Patrick are playing in the mud, annoying Squidward. He shouts at them, but leans too far, causing his house to tip over and break. SpongeBob offers him to stay with Patrick, but he refuses.

Squidward sets up a tent outside where his house used to be and gets ready for bed, but is interrupted by rain and wind, and is forced to go to Patrick's house in order to spend the night. Patrick is glad Squidward came to live with him. He gives him a room and goes to sleep on the ceiling. Squidward is already falling asleep as Patrick drools on him; he gets annoyed, and Patrick falls on Squidward.

The next morning, he equips the house as he pleases. He prepares a gourmet breakfast and teaches Patrick how to eat properly. He does everything, so Squidward decides to teach his neighbor everything he knows.

They are gardening and playing the clarinet. At this moment, Patrick changes and becomes like Squidward, which the latter is happy about. They begin to play the clarinet in public, and then paint, but no one buys Squidward's paintings. Patrick, on the contrary, takes them apart like hotcakes. Squidward is very angry, so he starts to dance, but none of the audience like his dance and start throwing tomatoes at him.

Further, Mr. Krabs observes that Squidward came out of Patrick, who is much better than an ordinary octopus. He begins to behave completely like Squidward, even making a similar voice. SpongeBob tells Squidward an idea on how to get everything back: he needs to become Patrick in turn. Squidward rejoices in this idea, and the next morning embodies it. When Patrick sees this, he is angry, because Squidward gnawed his clarinet and his other precious things. Further, he tries to teach Squidward good manners, but does not succeed.

Afterwards, Squidward plays in the mud with SpongeBob, and at that moment, Patrick remembers who he is and joins his friends. The helicopter brings Squidward's house, but in misfortune it collapses again, hitting Patrick's house. Now Squidward and Patrick move to SpongeBob's house, causing Squidward to break down, bawling.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on June 29, 2019.[4]
