It is a sunny day and SpongeBob is taking Gary for a walk when he hears a meow from nearby. He then sees the snail and takes him home after naming him, Señor Poopus. After he takes him home, Señor Poopus seems very happy and comfortable. Patrick then arrives and tells SpongeBob about the baby snails he left behind. SpongeBob quickly goes back to look and, sure enough, he finds them. After taking them home and putting them under a heated blanket and giving them milk, another snail then bursts in and walks over SpongeBob right to the babies, apparently being the mother. Later, another random guy drops off a stray snail, saying, "Thanks, snail guy!" Not long after that, there is a whole line of people waiting to give SpongeBob their snails, and SpongeBob eventually ends up with a total of 258 snails.

In the scene where SpongeBob and Patrick pass under the bridge, in the storyboard version, there is a piece of coral, but in the final version, it is replaced with a piece of kelp on a rock. Also, the bridge is brick in the storyboard, but rock in the final version.
After when SpongeBob says, "I'm gonna take 'em [the snails] home and feed them." In the storyboard version, there is a piece of kelp next to Patrick, but in the final version, it is not there.
In the scene where SpongeBob takes care of the baby snails in his kitchen, in the storyboard version, on the The Big Book of Snail Care's cover, there is a snail that is looking towards SpongeBob, but in the final version, it is away from him. The spine and back of the storyboard version have snail images, but the final does not. Also, the final version of the Powdered Snail Formula has an image of a snail on the box, but in the storyboard version, there is no snail. Patrick is also closer to SpongeBob in the final version than in the storyboard version. In the storyboard version, the final setting of the electric blanket shows the front side of four snails, but the final version shows a silhouette of the side of one snail. The basket in the storyboard version has a different pattern than in the final version. The snail suckle is upwards in the storyboard, but downwards in the final.
It is revealed that Squidward is allergic to snails, although there is only a reaction if there are many snails. He can stand a few, which is why he was never allergic to Gary the Snail, but probably one of the reasons that he didn't like Gary in "I Was a Teenage Gary." And despite this allergy, he once adopted a pet snail of his own in the episode "The Great Snail Race."
For the second time, Mr. Krabs is shown flirting with a male character that looks like a female. The first time was in "That's No Lady."
