SpongeBob and Patrick are at the movie theater going to see the movie Fisherman 4: Attack of the Hook. They meet Squidward who laughs saying they will not have any sleep after seeing the movie. They both claim they are grown-up men, but Squidward says "Boo" in a monotone voice and scares them effortlessly.
Then, they decide that they both show Squidward that they are not afraid of Fisherman 4: Attack of the Hook. They go and see the movie, and are instantly scared. They try not to look at the movie, but it is over when they open their eyes. They stay for a second showing to try to keep their eyes open, but they fail again. When they get out, they realize that it is midnight, the time when the Fisherman strikes.
They quickly run home, and repeatedly mistake the Fisherman for shadows of harmless beings. They become so frightened that they are too scared to walk to their houses by themselves. Each of them takes turns walking the other home, but they are scared by a harmless noise in which they wake Squidward up. Squidward gets annoyed by this, so he carries them to their houses. Even after they get home, they yell back and forth between their houses, which annoys Squidward even more. Squidward then decides to disguise as the Fisherman to scare SpongeBob and Patrick. He goes on top of his house(dressed like the Fisherman) and hooks Patrick's nose up, who runs screaming into SpongeBob's house while getting his face ripped off by the hook. Patrick runs into SpongeBob's bedroom and scares him because of his ripped out face. He tells SpongeBob about the Fisherman (who is really Squidward), and they become even more scared.
They board up the door to SpongeBob's bedroom, but Squidward enters through the window anyway. SpongeBob and Patrick are scared out of their wits, and exchange each other's underwear so they do not die in their own. While SpongeBob and Patrick are screaming, Squidward's head comes out of his disguise, while laughing, which SpongeBob and Patrick mistake as the Fisherman eating Squidward. They attack Squidward, attempting to save him. They throw him out of the window and Patrick then flings heavy objects on Squidward, leaving him in a coma. An ambulance comes to get Squidward, who is badly injured while SpongeBob and Patrick are glad now that they do not have to worry about the Fisherman anymore.
Then the Fisherman costume rises up and roars, this time without Squidward. SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward become scared out of their minds and go in the ambulance with Squidward, only for the Fisherman costume to fall, revealing Gary. The episodes ends with Gary meowing in the Fisherman costume and spinning around inside it and then purring.

- When Squidward is looking for a costume he finds a pink bunny outfit. This could refer to the Kuddly Krab Uniform in "Bossy Boots."
- This marks the first time within the show where Squidward is seen inside the movie theater. He has been seen close to it on the outside like in "Something Smells" and "Gone."
- This is the second time Squidward freaked SpongeBob out with a fishing rod and hook. The first time was in "Hooky" when he hooked SpongeBob's pants and underwear.
- This is the second time the title card music Straight From Hell was used. The first was in "The Krabby Patty That Ate Bikini Bottom."

- When SpongeBob and Patrick were blockading the door, the window was too close to the wall. Also, it was the wrong door, as they were blockading the one that goes to SpongeBob's library.
- SpongeBob puts Gary on the pile to shut the door. When Squidward enters through the window, Gary is gone.
- Gary also manages to get outside without explanation. The only logical explanation is that he was in one of the stuff Patrick threw down at Squidward.
- When Patrick dropped things onto Squidward (The Fisherman), he was on the first floor although they were on the second floor at first.
- When Patrick is throwing stuff down on Squidward, Squidward can be heard groaning and yelling in pain but his mouth doesn't move.
