Squidward is extremely annoyed by SpongeBob and Patrick's games which involves them throwing rocks on their heads and sauce on their eyes at work. Now, he wants to live in his own world where he can relax in peace. So, SpongeBob and Patrick build a tiki world made out of earwax for him outside his house, and Squidward starts to like it and does things such as drinking smoothies, listening to songs, painting and dancing. Everything seems well until Patrick accidentally tips over the tikis and causes a fire, destroying the tiki world in the process. Squidward comes up with an idea to make his dreams last: a swing set with his tiki boat, with SpongeBob and Patrick taking turns being hit by it and flying over.
Sandy was originally going to be in this episode, but she was cut out to save time.
