Role in episode

He appears once he mistakenly thinks that Patrick is the tour guide, as he is wearing the hat which fell from the real tour guide's head. As a result, the two walk around Bikini Bottom, with the tourist stopping to take pictures of anything he sees. Patrick first shows the tourist a hole he had dug up. Then, Patrick steals a kid's ice cream cone, with the tourist remarking that it is "amazing." After, Patrick leads the tourist to a place where a man is watching television with his kids. Patrick is kicked out, and results to visiting SpongeBob's house next. Meanwhile, the tourist takes pictures of his house while SpongeBob is still sleeping. In the meantime, they visit Squidward's house while he is still taking a shower. An angry Squidward proceeds to kick them out instantly. After, they head over to the Krusty Krab, where Patrick catches Plankton and the two begin to step on him. They then proceed to use the restrooms inside of the Krusty Krab, where they get kicked out by Mr. Krabs. Afterwards, they visit Sandy's tree dome and create a hole underneath them to get inside. Once they realize they have no water to breathe from, they quickly exit the tree dome leaving an annoyed Sandy behind. The last location they visit, Floater's Cemetery, ends in Patrick showing the tourist Ol' Ribeye's grave. After the tourist shakes Ribeye's hand and it falls off, Patrick explains that the two should run away from the cemetery. A skeleton women, annoyed at the disturbance caused by the two, calls the police. Once everyone forms an angry mob at Patrick's rock, including the police being there, the tourist reveals that his camera and himself, were not real and were just an illusion caused by The Tidal Zone.
