"Graveyard Shift"

He calls on the phone at the Krusty Krab, but hangs up because he is nervous. He is later dropped off by a bus and comes into the Krusty Krab, whereupon Squidward and SpongeBob think he is the hash-slinging slasher.

When it is revealed that he is not, he explains that he is looking for a job application at the Krusty Krab, having brought his own spatula. He then laughs with the duo at the end at Nosferatu flickering the lights in the restaurant.

"Snooze You Lose"

He is part of the crowd surrounding SpongeBob and Patrick inside of Squidward, controlling his actions.
