Gary is relaxing indoors when SpongeBob calls him outside to show off his new playhouse. Gary is unimpressed with the house, but SpongeBob remains excited. That evening, SpongeBob calls Gary inside, but he refuses to leave. Gary makes renovations to the house overnight, with the sound disrupting Squidward's sleep. SpongeBob yells that Gary is responsible for the loud noise, but he mishears and accuses Larry of making it instead.
The next morning, SpongeBob sees that Gary has built a small replica of SpongeBob's pineapple house. Gary dresses as SpongeBob, with Spot as his pet snail. SpongeBob is overwhelmed by the cuteness. Just then, he sees a smaller version of Squidward's house, inhabited by a grouchy urchin with Squidward's nose. Squidward comes out and trips over the rock of a Patrick-like slug. Much like SpongeBob, Squidward and Patrick fawn over how cute the animals are.
SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward watch their animal counterparts play, and wind up sleeping outside overnight. In the morning, Mr. Krabs comes in and calls his employees in to work. A Mr. Krabs-like sea bunny then hires Gary to work at a miniature Krusty Krab, which gets flooded by nematodes. When offered a spatula and told to work, Gary feels overwhelmed and decides to return to his normal life. He smashes the spatula and pushes the houses away with a bulldozer. SpongeBob welcomes Gary back into his house, along with the animal versions of Patrick and Squidward.
- This episode contains a mini-recreation of the anchovies scene from the pilot episode "Help Wanted," but with nematodes instead of anchovies.
