153a - Accidents Will Happen
At the Krusty Krab, the customers start to form a big riot because Squidward is not at his post, so Mr. Krabs asks SpongeBob where he is and he says that he is in the storage room doing something that requires "complete privacy."
Then, they hear a thud coming from the storage room, and find Squidward, who has twisted his ankle, in a pile of buns. After Squidward explains what happened, Mr. Krabs realizes that it means he has to pay a fine to OWS. Squidward then sees it as an opportunity to blackmail Mr. Krabs unless he becomes his servant until he recovers. First, Mr. Krabs fluffs a pillow for him and takes over for him.
Meanwhile, SpongeBob and Patrick secretly investigate the accident to find out if he is lying about his twisted ankle, but they cannot figure anything out. Meanwhile, Squidward is seen on the roof while Mr. Krabs brings him tea. Then, he is forced to massage Squidward's ankle with Fry Grease. But when a customer orders something, he cooks a patty with his greasy hand and gets the customer sick. And when he is forced to pop Squidward's back barnacles, the customers leave.
Then, an agent from the OWS comes to the Krusty Krab to investigate, then it is revealed that SpongeBob called him. Squidward then lies about how he was hurt, saying that he saw ten instead of eleven seeds on a bun, causing him to snatch it and try to replace it with a new one. When he was about to get one, the shelf broke and hit him in the head. When the OWS Agent is about to fine Mr. Krabs, he remembers the surveillance camera he installed.
When everyone watches the video, Squidward was shown sleeping on the shelf, weighing it down, and causing the chain to snap, meaning he was lying the whole time. Mr. Krabs becomes very angry and tells Squidward he will make him pay. The episode ends with Squidward popping Mr. Krabs's back barnacles.
