Patchy the Pirate is back, and reads a story about Squidward and SpongeBob. Squidward invents a machine that he calls The Patty Gadget, and he insists that Mr. Krabs fire SpongeBob because it can make patties faster and Mr. Krabs does not have to pay for it. Then, Mr. Krabs declares a Krabby Patty War against the Patty Gadget.
First, SpongeBob seems to be faster, but the machine is not an easy challenge for him. Everyone was enjoying the fight (except for Patrick who had to go to the bathroom.)
Squidward then bursts out the handle of the Patty Gadget and SpongeBob kills the enemy off by using his powerful kicking and punching powers against it.
However, SpongeBob faints after winning the fight. Everyone thinks that SpongeBob was buried, but it was actually the Patty Gadget. Squidward cried after discovering the death of his machine with the words, "R.I.P." Patchy closes the book with the picture of the machine's tombstone and then the word, The End beside it. The word, The Legends of SpongeBob in the end of the book is just like from the beginning. Patchy lastly mentions he has to go and polish his hook.
The story is a parody of the legend of tall tale John Henry challenging and defeating a steam drill. Just like how SpongeBob faints after winning the battle, John Henry passed away due to exhaustion.
Patchy said 20 patties, but there were actually 15.
Also, SpongeBob puts patties on the grill, but a few seconds later, the patties he put on the grill are gone and he puts on more.
After the scene where SpongeBob faints, there is a normal-sized grave. In the next scene, it was smaller.
On Squidward's final attempt to beat SpongeBob, he broke the lever on the Patty Gadget, but just before the machine explodes, the lever is in one piece again.The story "The Legend Of SpongeBob SquarePants" was not a real book but it looked like one in this episode.
This is not necessarily an episode. It more of a shortAll though when Patchy said "It was all over", the patty gadget was completely destroyed but when he says "You thought SpongeBob was buried down there? They just buried the gadget!" then there are just some holes in it.
