The episode begins with SpongeBob saying "hello" to Patrick. They blink at each other for a bit then SpongeBob decides that they should play hide and seek. However, Patrick doesn't know what the game is, so SpongeBob tries to explain it to him, but fails. SpongeBob then does it in a sock puppet version but Patrick still doesn't know how to play.They then start the game anyways, but Patrick quits before SpongeBob finishes counting, and goes to his home. SpongeBob then finishes counting and starts looking for Patrick.
Then he goes to look for him at Sandy's treedome. Sandy catches SpongeBob looking for Patrick and she gives him a submarine to look for Patrick.SpongeBob then goes on an adventure in the submarine before running out of fuel in a stormy area. He begins walking and bumps into a sign, welcoming him to a cafe and gift shop called The End of the World. He goes inside and asks the clerk if he's seen Patrick. The clerk points to a pink starfish and SpongeBob thinks it's Patrick. However, the pink starfish explains that he is Patrick Not-Star and SpongeBob starts crying because Patrick won at hide and seek. However, Patrick Not-Star explains to SpongeBob that games are about having fun, so SpongeBob cheers up.
SpongeBob then walks over to Patrick's rock and leaves him a note saying how he's good at Hide and Seek. At that moment, Patrick comes out of his rock and SpongeBob realizes he was under there the whole time. Patrick then reads the note and thanks SpongeBob.
Patrick then tells SpongeBob he has another question and he asks SpongeBob "What's Hide and Seek?"

- Patrick is shown not to know how to play hide and seek, but in "Wormy," he already knows how to. It's also possible it happened after "Wormy" because SpongeBob told him they played it dozens of times and he still didn't know what it was. They also play Hide and Seek in "Buried in Time" and "The Monster Who Came to Bikini Bottom."
- The background for the title card could possibly be the kelp forest from "Club SpongeBob." It is also very similar to the title card in "The Algae's Always Greener" and "The Thing."
- SpongeBob is seen taking the letters off the Krusty Krab, but in "Krusty Krab Training Video," Mr. Krabs is seen painting the letters.
- Some airings have this episode paired with "Tunnel of Glove."
- During the theme song, this is the first episode to adapt to using the new Nickelodeon logo which is seen with the show's logo.
- When SpongeBob picks up a pink cone-shaped piece of coral from the ground, thinking it is Patrick's head, it is an allusion to the episode "Patrick SmartPants."
- This episode was included along with "Shellback Shenanigans" as special features on the SpongeBob's Runaway Roadtrip, DVD even though the episodes are not from the same season as the other episodes on that are the DVD.
- This episode premiered five years after Meow...Like a Snail?! was released.
- It would be impossible for Sandy's submarine's windshield to be unscathed after smashing through Sandy's treedome due to them supposedly both being made of the same polyurethane material.
- The submarine could not have moved while in the treedome as there was no water in it.
- When SpongeBob looks around and sees Patrick's house, neither Squidward's nor SpongeBob's houses are shown.
- When the submarine runs out of fuel and crashes, SpongeBob can clearly be seen inside the cockpit, piloting the submarine. In the next shot, when the fuel alarm goes off, he is in the bathroom, shaving.
