After Mr. Krabs receives a $10,000 hospital bill and realizes that he is not dreaming like he thought he was, he revokes all the free things he gave to the customers, one of which is a soft drink. He puts the cup for it near the soda machine's dispenser and the cup's contents go back into the machine in reverse.
"Banned in Bikini Bottom"
Squidward is stacking cups in the form of a triangle near the soda machine. During the process, SpongeBob inhales air. Right after Squidward finishes the triangle of cups, SpongeBob, full of air, looks to his left and exhales all of the air, which wrecks the cup pyramid.
A catastrophic event of a fried Squidward being sent flying across the Krusty Krab ends with him dodging the soda machine, destroying it in the process.
