Characters

Synopsis

The episode starts with SpongeBob and Patrick dribbling, while Sandy is annoyed as they aren't shooting. Sandy eventually gets so annoyed that she takes some barnacles, makes it into a ball, and shoots it into the net. Later, SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy are eating hot dogs. However, SpongeBob and Patrick eat them slowly. Sandy then makes them watch her as she eats tons of hot dogs. She then gets bad breath that comes to SpongeBob and Patrick, making them have their heads shrink, so Sandy gives them dinky dogs out of the jumbo dogs. Sandy is then seen winning a game of volleyball with some other characters. SpongeBob and Patrick get tired of Sandy's antics and decide to go jellyfishing

When they are at Jellyfish Fields, they are glad that they are jellyfishing instead of being with Sandy. However, Sandy comes and asks to join, and SpongeBob and Patrick let her join. Sandy says she wants to kick some jelly booty, but then SpongeBob and Patrick show her how to actually jellyfish, where you catch and release. Sandy however gets bored of this, so she gets some Frankenstein Fish Food and throws some in the air, where the jellyfish get attracted to the food. This turns the jellyfish into jelly-buzz saws.

SpongeBob and Patrick however get annoyed and get very hurt by these new types of jellyfish. Meanwhile, Sandy is catching all the jellyfish and putting them in a cage, and eventually causes the entirety of Jellyfish Fields to crumble. SpongeBob and Patrick, looking very maimed, tell Sandy that there are no more jellyfish as she destroyed Jellyfish Fields, and remind Sandy to release the jellyfish. Sandy realizes that she may be too overcompetitive and that she should change her ways. However, what she doesn't realize is all the jellyfish came together to form one humongous jellyfish.

Later, Sandy has redecorated her treedome and has started meditating, to try and calm her mind. Meanwhile, SpongeBob and Patrick come to Sandy's door and knock on it a lot, as they have been getting chased by the huge jellyfish. When SpongeBob and Patrick get in and realize that Sandy has remade her treedome, they desperately ask Sandy to clobber the big jellyfish, but Sandy refuses as she says she's non-violent now. The jellyfish breaks into Sandy's treedome though, so Sandy tries to get the monster to stop by trying a few non-violent methods. However, all of them don't work. Sandy then starts to act more aggressive again, trying to stop the big jellyfish. Sandy tries to use the game "dodge the chum" she played earlier to stop the jellyfish, but it doesn't work. The jellyfish takes SpongeBob and Patrick, which makes Sandy more angry, so she tries to get the jellyfish from the inside, which makes the jellyfish explode into thousands of smaller jellyfish.

SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy float down calmly, with SpongeBob being happy with the small jellyfish and Patrick giving a dollar to another jellyfish. The gang go back down to Jellyfish Fields, where Sandy enjoys the harmony of the jellyfish, until one stings her, which makes her chase them again, with SpongeBob saying "That's our Sandy."
