June 14, 2002, Spongebob has a guy arrested for littering. After he is arrested, Squidward reveals that that guy is The Tattle Tale Stangler. Seconds later, the Strangler escapes, plotting to murder Spongebob. Spongebob looks for a bodyguard to protect him, but all refuse. Spongebob decides to go into hiding until the Strangler gives up, or until he can find a bodyguard. Then, a guy who is obviously the Strangler in disguise, comes up to him. Seemingly oblivious to his identity, Spongebob hires him. The Strangler decides to take Spongebob to a dark place with no witnesses. Spongebob takes him to his house after a few errands. Spongebob can't find his house key, so the Stangler suggests that they climb in through the window. Spongebob jumps onto his eyes wearing cleats. Spongebob remembers the key is under his mat (like in the house party episode). Once inside, The Strangler attempts to murder Spongebob, but is interrupted by a surprise party celebrating Spongebob's perfect on-time percentage at work. The Strangler then attempts to choke him again, but is interrupted by another party, this time for Spongebob's birthday. Alone again, PAtrick shows up for an unknown reason, The Strangler gets rid of him by saying that he is the stangler. Patrick, in his stupidity, turns himself in. The Strangler, frustrated, rtakes off his disguise, saying he bought it at the party store. The guests immediaely come back after hearing the word party. The strnalger runs away, eventually landing in a jail cell at the police station, and Spongebob "learns" the truth. "At least im safe from that yellow idiot". Patrick then appears saying, "hey mac, what're ya in for?
