At the Krusty Krab, the customers are very hungry. Squidward asks SpongeBob why the orders aren't ready yet. SpongeBob explains that he is practicing for an oral report that he must do for boating school. Squidward says that "public speaking" causes stress, but then SpongeBob explains how he is good at "public speaking". SpongeBob then walks out, ready to give the customers their orders, and gets scared because they are acting zombie-like. SpongeBob realizes that he has stage fright. The customer starts fighting for the single order as Squidward gets beaten up after trying to give a customer its order, which makes SpongeBob even more frightened. It then cuts to Patrick's rock. Patrick opens it, only to realize he has the wrong rock, but SpongeBob pulls him in. SpongeBob asks Patrick to help him practice by listening to his speech. SpongeBob is prevented of practicing his she says if he wants to pass, then he has to give the report. SpongeBob begins to becomes very nervous, and Patrick decides that SpongeBob should see Sandy for help. Sandy gives SpongeBob a pair of underwear with goggles on it, so SpongeBob can see people in their underwear so he won't feel nervous.

SpongeBob asks Patrick for the googles, and he gives SpongeBob the goggles while accidentally breaking them in the process after polishing them.

  • The title card for this episode looks similar to the title card of Frankendoodle, as both are on paper.
  • This is the third time Patrick appears as a lady. The first was That's No Lady, and the second was Love That Squid.
  • It is interesting to note several similarities between this episode and "Hall Monitor":
    • SpongeBob is required to do an oral assignment at Mrs. Puff's Boating School.
    • A rampage occurred in urban Bikini Bottom.
    • When Mrs. Puff states SpongeBob was under her responsibility, the police arrest her rather than SpongeBob.
  • If one would look closely right when Squidward is getting beaten up by the customers at the Krusty Krab, his hat can be seen flying through the window into the kitchen where SpongeBob is at.
  • This is the second time that someone impersonates Mrs. Puff. In this episode's case, it's Patrick. The first was SpongeBob in the episode Gone.
  • The music that is played when Squidward was first looking at the hungry customers is the same music that is played when Patrick was looking at nothing in the episode Stuck in the Wringer.
  • This episode reveals that Patrick is fatter than Mrs. Puff, by the fact that her clothes are too small for Patrick.
  • That's the 6th time Mrs. Puff is going to jail. The first was Hall Monitor, the second was No Free Rides, the third was Doing Time, the fourth was Ditchin', and the fifth was Summer Job.


  • When SpongeBob begins shaking, Mrs. Puff's spots are missing.
  • The clock on top of the purple poster behind the students was there in one scene, but then disappears in another.
  • After Squidward asks SpongeBob to take orders from the customers, the index cards in the grill was gone.
  • When Patrick is wearing Mrs. Puff's clothes it should not have been too small for him because they should be able to stretch because of Mrs. Puff's ability to expand in size.
