SpongeBob decides to mimic/imitate people for business, and also because he heard that "imitation plus flattery equals happy people." He first imitates a father yelling at his kids. The father and the kids become impressed with SpongeBob's mimicry. SpongeBob them imitates Squidward, who also likes his imitation. He then imitates Patrick, who thinks he's looking at his real self. SpongeBob then imitates Sandy and Plankton, while they were playing a game of checkers. Sandy admires the imitation, but Plankton says that "The voice is all wrong." He also imitates the French Narrator by saying "80 000 Imitations Later..." in his voice. After a while, it starts to get annoying. People persuade him to stop, but he gets a thing called "mocking mimicry madness" and ends up forgetting who he truly is. SpongeBob's friends, including Plankton, attempt to help, but they make it worse as SpongeBob happens to mimic all of them at once. He then sadly leaves town and goes to live in a cave in regrets of not remembering himself. His friends find him and end up mimicking him in order to bring back SpongeBob. It ends up working, but the others get the mocking mimicry madness and end up like SpongeBob.
