SpongeBuck is seen swinging on a chair, playing a guitar with the narrator saying that anyone can go from a "yokel" to a "tough guy." He is then taken to a board where he is made into a tough-looking guy. SpongeBuck says that nobody is going to mess with him, but Pecos Patrick also appears as a "tough guy."
He threatens SpongeBuck and the latter runs off scared without his "tough guy" look, after saying "Please don't hurt me!"
