Later, he comes home and finds out that SpongeBob and Patrick took his Sunday Pedicure and foot massage. When Squidward wants his feet rubbed, the hour is up.

SpongeBob and Patrick turn the security system off, and Squidward's house falls on him.The episode ends with Squidward looking crazy but what happens?
