SpongeBob is getting ready for bed. When he tries to fall asleep, he can't. He then drinks a glass of warm snail milk, which causes him to fall asleep.
The next morning, SpongeBob wakes up and found out he overslept. He was in a rush to get to the Krusty Krab on time, but when he put his attendance card in the slot, the clock says he is one minute late. Worried that Mr. Krabs would punish him, SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs that he was late. Mr. Krabs didn't scold him that much (even saying "Um...don't do it again."), but, at SpongeBob's request to punish him for his "wrongdoings", made him clean the salad bar. Squidward suggests to SpongeBob that he live at the Krusty Krab.
That night, SpongeBob brings his bed to the Krusty Krab and sleeps there.
The next morning, Mr. Krabs notices SpongeBob's bed. He tells him he's going to live at the Krusty Krab now. When Squidward finds out, he was very happy. That night, SpongeBob brings all of his furniture at the Krusty Krab.
The next morning, Squidward is happy that SpongeBob no longer lives next door to him. He tells the news to the customer. When he asks Squidward for change, he gave him two socks and a pair of tighty-whiteys. Squidward then notices the whole cash register is filled with socks and underwear. He askes SpongeBob why it's in there and where's the money. SpongeBob then says that the money is now being kept in a pickle jar. More socks and underwear was hanging up. A customer then takes a pair of underwear, thinking it's a napkin. SpongeBob then explains that Gary has the mustard.
Later, SpongeBob moves his furniture into Mr. Krabs' office. Then SpongeBob's parents come to the Krusty Krab. Gary's trail of slime gets all over the floor and customers keep slipping on it. A customer then tells SpongeBob about the "snail trail" incident and SpongeBob is mad at Gary.
Wreak havoc is at the Krusty Krab after SpongeBob lives there a few more days. He ends up placing soap decorations in the bathroom, knitting napkin holders, and emboadering the menus. Mr. Krabs becomes angry when he notices shower curtains in his office. He threatens to tear them down, but SpongeBob's mom is taking a shower. SpongeBob's dad comes in and asks what's going on. The customers leave the Krusty Krab when they find out SpongeBob is shaving Patrick's back hair. Mr. Krabs is so angry that he makes SpongeBob leave the Krusty Krab.
In the end, SpongeBob moves back to his house. Squidward is upset, so he moves into the Krusty Krab, much to Mr. Krabs's chagrin.
When SpongeBob reveals he put the money from the cash register in the pickle jar, Mr. Krabs laughs it off and tells Squidward it's "harmless tomfoolery." In other episodes, he gets upset when something happens to his money.
In the 2012 R-rated drama mystery film, Flight, a brief footage of the episode, where SpongeBob drinks milk, is seen when the main character is changing the channel at a hotel room.
When SpongeBob was singing "Laundry Song," the theme is the same one used for the title card.
The closed captions say "man on speaker" when Squidward talks on the speaker.
