Squidward sees Spongebob and Patrick getting a large box from a truck. When the box is opened, it contains a Giant TV. Patrick and Spongebob throw the TV away and keep the box. Squidward goes to them and asks why they threw the TV away. Spongebob the explains by saying "We don't need television, as long as we have, Imagination." Squidward, not wanting any part of this, asks for the TV, and they let him have it. Once he takes the TV back inside his house, he realizes that the remote is missing and he goes back outside for it. He hears them begin to mountain climb (supposedly) and, annoyed by their stupidity, he gives the box a good, hard kick. A sound like an avalanche suddenly erupts from the box, shocking him. Concerned, he taps the box, prompting another avalanche. After hearing about how Spongebob cut his limbs off, Squidward rushes over to the box, opens it, and the noises immediately stop. He questions them about the noises, but they act oblivious and he takes his leave. Suddenly, the sound of a helicopter is heard and Squidward ducks. Realizing that its coming from the box, he angrily opens the box and confronts them again. Spongebob simply tells him that all of it came from imagination. Squidward says he has plenty of imagination, to which Patrick replies, "Good, now all you need is a box". Squidward gets a box, attempts it, and fails. After kicking his box in anger, he hears the sound of police sirens outside. Thinking that his kicking of the box is the cause, he goes outside with his box to apologize. He is quick to realize that the noises are coming from the box Spongebob and Patrick are playing in. Furious, he kicks the box he was holding, which Patrick retrieves, saying, "Whoopee! Another Box!" Squidward then begins watching TV, but all that is on are programs that are about or involve boxes. He then hears a Space shuttle launch. As he tries to think of how they could possibly manage to make such realistic sound effects, it dawns upon him that they are probably using a tape recorder. Angered, he marches outside and demands the tape recorder of Spongebob and Patrick.

Patrick: "Here's a box, Squidward."
Patrick: "Here's a box, Squidward."

Spongebob tells him that they don't have a tape recorder, which Squidward doesn't believe. He decides to join them in the box to see how they are managing to make the sound effects. After being asked where he wants to go, he eventually asks to go to "Robot-Pirate Island". But the only thing he sees is Spongebob and Patrick saying stereotypical phrases of robots and pirates (Arrr, You'll walk the plank for that, beep beep, etc.) Squidward returns to his house and soon hears the sounds of an epic robot-pirate battle. The show cuts to late at night when a pirate victory celebration is heard. Once Spongebob and Patrick abandon the box so they can go to bed, Squidward goes to the box, looking for something that would make the noise. A scan of the box proves that there is no such device in it. Realizing that the box is in fact empty, Squidward wonders if it was their imagination that caused the sound effects, but he immediately dismisses the notion, thinking that it's ridiculous. He mockingly starts pretending to be a racecar driver, but suddenly he begins to hear noises. Really getting into his play now, he imagines himself racing. Though part of it was his imagination, most of it was really a trash truck hauling the box away. It is then dumped into the landfill, and Squidward gets trash all over himself when the box lands in trash. The next day, Spongebob and Patrick realize the box is gone and they go to check on Squidward. Patrick then says, "I hope he isn't too down in the dumps" (Squidward, presumably, is still in the landfill). Image File history File linksMetadata 1_1. ...
