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 is 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 slave 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 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 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 the whole time he was lying. Then, Mr. Krabs becomes very angry and makes Squidward pay. The episode ends with Squidward popping Mr. Krabs's back barnacles.

This episode was first aired in the Philippines on October 14, 2011, along with The Other Patty. Both episodes are not part of the Animation Domination special, featuring a combination of the rest of Season 8 episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants and new episodes of Kung Fu Panda: Legends Of Awesomeness, only airing on the week of April 9, 2012 to April 13, 2012. The second one is Drive Thru and The Hot Shot, which is also not part of Animation Domination. The third one would be Frozen Face-Off which aired on January 13, 2012. The first and second aired along with The Great Patty Caper, New Fish in Town, and Love That Squid.
It is revealed that there is an OWS poster, hidden in the stockroom.
They didn't call the OWS in The Splinter when SpongeBob got the splinter in his thumb, they just threatened to send him home. This is possibly because SpongeBob's splinter was a minor injury.
Also, there were many customers in the restaurant at the time, and somehow they got their Krabby Patties.
When the customers are leaving because they're disgusted by Squidward's back barnacles, you can hear someone say "Is THAT the secret ingredient?", and another one saying "Horrible special sauce".
It is debatable as to whether the surveillance camera operates from the same room as the one in "Truth or Square." The one in Truth or Square seemed unreachable, hinting that this one works from a different surveillance room.
This is the third time Mr. Krabs makes the Krabby Patty instead of SpongeBob. The first was in Welcome to the Chum Bucket and the second was in Fungus Among Us. This is also the second time that he makes the Krabby Patty without burning it.
Squidward seems to show signs of what could be considered Munchausen Syndrome, in which a person fakes a disease or illness in order to elicit attention or sympathy. In this case, getting Mr. Krabs to pamper him.
Because it's such a serious situation that Squidward was injured, and plus the fact that the OWS had to get involved, it is strange that Mr. Krabs was only charged a dollar.
It is revealed that Mr. Krabs has a security camera in the bun storage. This shows his overprotection as revealed in Truth or Square.
Mr. Krabs says "What in Neptune's knickers?" and "knickers" means "panties" in the UK.
Mr. Krabs has committed yet another crime. He said he "borrowed" the security camera from the airport in a nervous tone. Of course, Mr. Krabs has actually stolen it.
When the OWS arrives in the warehouse, the chalk outline of Squidward is much lower than the shelf. Squidward, arrival OWS, is on a wheelchair after, Squidward is always in a wheelchair. The door of the warehouse, however, has been cordoned off by SpongeBob. No one knows how Squidward can be entered.
Mr. Krabs was mad at Squidward for sleeping on the job, but in a few previous episodes, Mr. Krabs was used to it.
In Squidward's false flashback, the chain on the right snaps, but in reality it was the one on the left. Also he says he lay for 6 hours before being found. However, SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs run in immediately when they hear him fall.
In the first few minutes of the episode, Squidward's ankle did look like it was twisted and hurt, but after the scene on the roof, it looks better again. It might have been that Squidward did not lie about the twisted ankle, but lied when saying it's going take a while to heal.
While SpongeBob and Patrick are investigating in the stockroom, there is a jar of Fry Grease. But when Mr. Krabs picks it up, it says Fay Grease instead.
When Mr. Krabs asks SpongeBob where is Squidward, SpongeBob was holding his spatula, but when it zooms in, he's not holding anything.
In Squidward's false report, he suggests that a customer's Krabby Patty had only ten sesame seeds instead of eleven. This too would be inaccurate, as sesame seed buns normally have over a hundred seeds on them, not just eleven. Besides, the camera only showed one side of the Krabby Patty. There has to be more on the other side.
There is an error on the chalk outline of Squidward: in fact, the visible shape is characterized by four tentacles (two arms and two legs), but the other two legs are not drawn.
When Squidward is caught in sight with the Krabby Patty, the menu is spelled "Gally Grub", not "Galley Grub". When the camera returns to his face and body, both the "Menu" and "Order Here" signs are gone.
