As Patrick is hesitant in talking about what he did, SpongeBob starts to yell through the microphone, making Confess-A-Bear sound threatening. Patrick, feeling pressured and guilty by SpongeBob, or Confess-A-Bear, reveals by accident that he had mistakenly dropped SpongeBob's toothbrush in the toilet and did not wash it, making SpongeBob run around screaming and panicking, trying to get rid of bacteria on his tongue while Patrick thinks Confess-A-Bear is unhappy with him due to no response.
