This episode starts when SpongeBob and patrick are taking a Boating School lesson with Mrs. Puff - a police car decides to pursue them upon which SpongeBob, patrick and Mrs. Puff fall off an unfnished bridge and crash into a truck and the invisisible boat mobile and flood the mermalair with fruit punch. Mrs. Puff is arrested by mermaid man and barnacleboy. SpongeBob and Patrick plan to get Mrs. Puff out of jail. Later SpongeBob and Patrick try to rob a bank in order to be put in jail but they are unsuccessful. Their next plan is to turn into rocks to get in jail and this time they succeed.

SpongeBob and Patrick encounter Mrs. Puff who is frightened by their appearance - another woman takes a hammer and crushes the rocks that are really SpongeBob and Patrick.

Later when Mrs. Puff is on kitchen duty she sees SpongeBob and patrick again - Patrick eats all the chilli: Mrs. Puff screams at them again to leave and the guards order her back to her cell.

SpongeBob and Patrick disguise themselves as prison guards, then the real guards appear and Mrs. Puff, who is confused, doesn't believe that they are the real guards and she removes their faces. Later the real guards put Mrs. Puff in a solitary confinement cell that was made of sponge, the Sponge being SpongeBob. Then she wakes up and this time SpongeBob gets arrested and Mrs. Puff is happy that she was not arrested and a guard tells her that she already did her time in jail. Mrs. Puff is disorientated by the sequence of events.

  • This is the third time Mrs. Puff is put in jail.
  • When the guard throws Mrs. Puff in the yellow room, there is a rubber ducky. When SpongeBob starts laughing, the ducky disappears.
  • Mrs. Puff's hat changes color several times during the episode. When Mrs. Puff goes to lunch duty, her hat turns from red to blue, and one second later, it turns back to red. When SpongeBob was negotiating with Mrs. Puff when she was drinking a glass of water, it turns to black. When the police are leading Mrs. Puff away to jail, her hat changes from blue to red to blue again.
