SpongeBob wakes up one morning, stops his alarm clock, and looks out the window. He asks Gary about ever wondering what Patrick does every morning. The scene pans to Patrick sleeping on a chair in his house. His alarm clock rings and he becomes startled. He hides and realizes that it is something that happens every day. Then, the alarm clock continues ringing and Patrick says that the joke is over. Its persistent ringing angers Patrick, leading him to attacking the lamp and ripping it in half.
He then draws SpongeBob's face on his pillow and places his underwear on it to represent his best friend, SpongeBob. He asks PillowBob about the noise and then the pillow falls on the alarm clock.
Then, it is time for breakfast. He goes to the refrigerator and many Canned Coral cans come out of it. Patrick thinks that he has nothing to eat, but he figures out that the food is in the can, so he takes a plate and asks the can to give him some food, but, being insentient, the can obviously doesn't respond. Patrick tries to open it and gets frustrated, so he throws it and it lands on the alarm clock, causing the food to come out of it.
Patrick grabs the food and sits down to watch television. He eats the coral, but the ringing alarm clock comes again and he realizes that he is late. He runs downstairs, but trips on the broken lamp and falls down the stairs. He crashes through his dresser and his shorts are put on.
Then, he falls again and he goes through his bathroom and grabs his toothbrush. Then after some shenanigans, Patrick pops out of his rock and SpongeBob asks about his morning. Patrick says he just had another normal morning.
