As Patrick wakes up, a mailfish gives him a package. Curious, he then opens it, and finds a trophy inside. Excited, he starts Spshowing everyone that he has a trophy (even the jellyfish and Bikini Atoll). He shows SpongeBob, who then realizes that the trophy is actually for him. Patrick is disappointed, even more so when he sees the contents of SpongeBob's special award closet. SpongeBob tries to help him find a way to win an award, and eventually Patrick decides to get a job at the Krusty Krab.
First Patrick had to delivery the food to the customer, however he keeps eating eat, also when Spongebob gives him an explanation on how to do it right. Then he starts answering the phone, but ends up getting really angry when he thought everyone was calling him the Krusty Krab, then Spongebob tolds him that's the name of the restaurant leaving Patrick ashamed. He next task was to sweep the floor near table 3. Patrick states he can't do anything right, but Spongebob told him he'll do fine. Unfortunately he sweeps the floor with the top part of the broom. Suddenly a delivery man comes in saying he got a load of award for Spongebob Squarepants. Patrick was so angry he hits the floor with the broom making dust fly everywhere making everyone cough. Spongebob pushes Patrick in the kitchen.is SpongeBob presents him with the extremely basic task of opening a jar. But Patrick takes out the wrong thing, puts the jar In his mouth,and placing his hand wrong. Spongebob tells him to do it exactly as he does which gave Patrick in idea. He opens the jar thinking that he broke it. Eventually, Spongebob shouted out that Patrick succeeded in opening the jar, and he and SpongeBob begin celebrating.
The next day, Patrick started copying Spongebob at work in hope of achieving the same success as his friend. When SpongeBob realizes this, he attempts to make him stop, but is unsuccessful until he dresses up as Patrick, which makes Patrick realize the error of his ways, and that he is a loser in every sense of the word. However, Patrick is then suddenly given an award for "doing absolutely nothing longer than anyone else." He then goes back under his rock to "protect (his) title."
In some versions, at the beginning of the episode, the sound of the parcel being shoved into Patrick's mouth is heard before the mailman actually shoves it into his mouth.
The subtitles for this episode are incorrect at times, such as "And make sure the food gets to the customer" being shown as "and be sure the tray gets to the customer.", and when SpongeBob says to Patrick "No, you have to bring the tray to the customer.", the subtitles say "custom".
There is a CD storybook based on this episode named "And The Winner Is..."
This is the second time the Krusty Krab appears without Mr. Krabs. The first being in the episode SB-129.
Though this is a season two episode, Patrick has his 3's eyebrows from the first season, instead of his new and recognizable Z's eyebrows.
The scene where SpongeBob helps Patrick open the jar was used on Nicktoons as a "Rockin' Nicktoon Moment".
This is the only episode to have Hawaiian Sting 5 as the title card music.
This is the second time Patrick got a job at the Krusty Krab and later was fired or quit. The first was in Arrgh (though, it was only for about five seconds); the third was in Bummer Vacation when he took over while SpongeBob was on "vacation"; the fourth time in That's No Lady when Patrick disguises himself as a woman, and the fifth was Chum Bucket Supreme, in which Patrick made a slogan (Krabby Patties are fum) for the Krusty Krab in the end.
When SpongeBob's nose pops back out when he is pretending to be Patrick, his buck teeth aren't shown when he is frowning. However, in the next scene, he still has the same frown and his teeth are now visible.
When SpongeBob and Patrick enter the kitchen so Patrick can open a jar, a small table is seen to the left of the stove, when there is usually nothing there.
