Plot

After his ship breaks down, The Flying Dutchman takes up residence at SpongeBob's house where he proceeds to scare, startle and surprise SpongeBob around the clock. SpongeBob does get scared and goes to Squidward's house for help, but unfortunately, Squidward doesn't believe in ghosts. So he slams the door in SpongeBob's face. SpongeBob soon turns to Patrick to help, but Patrick just closes his door. Then he hears Gary cry for help. SpongeBob enters his house to stop The Flying Dutchman. The Flying Dutchman then says that he just wanted to pet Gary, only to reveal that it was a trick by eating him. SpongeBob despairs about the death of Gary until Gary appears behind him with no explanation. Eventually, all the spooky shenanigans grow old, and SpongeBob and all of the citizens of Bikini Bottom are no longer afraid of the Dutchman. This creates a panic for the old ghost who now fears that he has lost his scary touch. So SpongeBob decides to lend a hand and help the Flying Dutchman learn to scare people again. Unfortunately, SpongeBob's first attempt didn't work until the customer on the mattress screamed from the startling notice of the mattress salesman. The second attempt also didn't work since The Flying Dutchman got hit by a jump rope. The third attempt didn't work when an old lady mistakes him for someone else. The fourth attempt didn't work when Larry thought that he had a flab on his pecs. The Flying Dutchman decides to give up since maybe people don't believe in ghosts anymore. This gives SpongeBob an idea. Spongebob tells the Flying Dutchman to watch a crazy video about some mysterious saying "The Power Within" constantly. The Flying Dutchman gets his revenge to go to Squidward's house and successfully scares him. The Flying Dutchman finally has the nerve to scare people again. He had a confession to make: that when his ship broke down, he lost his scare, but the ship is repaired now. The episode ends with The Flying Dutchman leaving SpongeBob with a present with a scary surprise, but SpongeBob laughs at it.
