Role in series
During the episode, Squidward goes upstairs to help his wound, and he tells SpongeBob to vacuum for him. SpongeBob grabs the vacuum cleaner, but he gets the On switch stuck. The vacuum gets jammed on "High suck" and starts sucking up Squidward's furniture, carpets, and walls.
Squidward comes downstairs and sees that the vacuum cleaner bag is enormous. SpongeBob tries to turn it off, but gets sucked into the vacuum cleaner.
SpongeBob "borrows" Squidward's vacuum cleaner to make Squidward visit his house. Squidward goes to SpongeBob's house in search of his beloved vacuum cleaner. After a while, he finds his vacuum cleaner in the closet along with SpongeBob's furniture. He tries to yank it out, but the force causes him to fall down the stairs with his vacuum cleaner.
Squidward finds out the vacuum cleaner is his and drags it out of SpongeBob's house, until he notices that his own house burned down because SpongeBob kept him away from his casserole. Squidward yells at SpongeBob, who tells him that it is okay, because Squidward can just stay at SpongeBob's house.
This causes Squidward to go into a state of shock and start imagining himself having tea with his vacuum cleaner, until he starts laughing hysterically.
"I ♥ Dancing"
SpongeBob, who is showing off his dance moves with a cane, pulls the top of the cane off where flowers appear to sprout out of it. SpongeBob then places the flowers on Squidward's hat, causing Squidward to suck the flowers up with his vacuum cleaner, due to his annoyance of SpongeBob's dance moves.
