Role in episode
Wet Noodle is the fourth and last place SpongeBob goes for a new job after he had been fired from the Krusty Krab, Weenie Hut, Pizza Piehole, and Taco Sombrero. SpongeBob tries to apply for a job here, but he is fired after creating a Noodle Patty, contrary to what Noodleman wants, and is deemed unprofessional.
Later in the episode, Noodleman swipes SpongeBob with giant chopsticks because supposedly the customers really liked the Noodle Patties and tries to rehire him. Noodleman ends up getting in a big fight with the other restaurant owners until SpongeBob is rescued by a giant Killer Krabby Patty, who turns out to be Squidward in disguise.
