"The Goofy Newbie" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season twelve. In this episode, Patrick takes a job at the Goofy Goober when he finds out the employees get free ice cream.



Patrick is at Goofy Goober's, where he is sampling ice cream and holding up the line. The cashier, Squidina, tells him that he has already sampled all the flavors and asks for him to buy something already. However, Patrick now wants to sample combinations and brings out his personal spoon, which is a shovel but Squidina is now frustrated with his stupidity and has security kick the protesting Patrick out.

Dejected, Patrick lays on the ground when two Goofy Goober workers mistake him for a bench and sit on him. They talk about the pleasures of having to get free ice cream while on break and Patrick is intrigued by this. The workers also state that only employees get to have the ice cream for free and Patrick announces that he will get a job. The workers then realize that he wasn't a bench and run away freaking out in the process.

Afterwards, the Goofy Goober training video plays which explains the history of Reginald Goober who was nicknamed Goofy. It explains that the first Goofy Goober ice cream was opened in 1842 where Reginald first served ice cream in rocks and sticks and that the three rules are to maintain good workplace habits, believe in extra terrestrial life and to practice good hygiene. Back at the restaurant Patrick is still sleeping and the manager wakes him up. Patrick then asks for the free ice cream, but the manager explains that he needs to have his first break, then he leads him to his first job which is to wash dishes.

After a few minutes, Patrick washes all the dishes very quickly and the manager asks how he did it. Patrick puts the dishes inside of his mouth, leaving the manager disgusted. This leads him to his second job, which is to put all the newly delivered ice cream in the freezer. The manager then summarizes the instructions to Patrick.

Patrick puts all of the ice cream inside the freezer. Because he thinks it's cold, he changes the temperature to boiling hot. After an hour, the manager opens the freezer and all of the newly delivered ice cream is melted. It fills up the freezer to the point where it floods the entire restaurant. The manager then assigns him to wear the Goofy Goober outfit and then warns him how the kids are overly affectionate.

Meanwhile, Patrick decides to use the vacuum of the Goofy Goober outfit to suck up all of the ice cream. The manager then opens the outfit to find loads of ice cream on the inside. Afterwards, Patrick is told to go home. Back at home, SpongeBob SquarePants then sits on top of Patrick's rock to which a disappointed Patrick arrives and tells SpongeBob about how bad his work day was. Then, SpongeBob gets an idea.

The next day, SpongeBob goes to work with Patrick and SpongeBob does all the work for him. Patrick's job is to serve ice cream to kids. SpongeBob is able to make an ice cream sandwich, which impresses the manager. Then, SpongeBob starts making many different styles of ice cream and gives them to the kids, then Patrick has his first break. SpongeBob then realizes that he'll be late for work, so Patrick then takes his ice cream break. He has only two minutes left so he eats so much ice cream to the point that he gets brain freeze and freezes the entire world. Five billion years later, the ice melts and Patrick gets fired. Then, similar to the training video, Patrick walks onto an ice cream UFO.
