[edit] Plot

It is now Springtime in Bikini Bottom. Patrick emerges under his rock wearing a purple sweater. Patrick strips the sweater and buries it under the sand like a dog would. SpongeBob comes out of his house and begins to greet the flowers and sniff them after stating that he has Spring Fever. Squidward emerges from his home as well, and after some convincing from SpongeBob, he too says hello to the flowers. The flowers react like an aggravated cat, hissing at Squidward, causing him to run into his house screaming. SpongeBob says he shall do him a kindness and plant him some hypo-allergenic flowers.

Later, SpongeBob is wearing a gardening outfit, including a sun hat, overalls, and clogs. He first plants a coral flower, and turns to grab the watering can to water said flower only to turn back around and find the flower bitten in half. He continues this routine of planting flowers and turning his back until he states "I'm not taking my eyes off you." Three days later, he still has not moved his eyes, and in fact, has to water them because they have dried out. Patrick walks by and draws SpongeBob's attention – SpongeBob turns back, and the flower is gone again. SpongeBob finally sees a seahorse, which has been eating the flowers, which then runs away and starts neighing on top of a rock. He decides to tame her and writes a scientific journal of sorts about her mysterious qualities, and hence names her "Mystery." The seahorse spots SpongeBob's floral bookmark and approaches him. Apparently eating the bookmark was enough to tame the seahorse, as the episode proceeds to a montage with 1960s psychedelic backgrounds of the two of them frolicking together, enjoying piggyback rides, painting, blowing bubbles, and even going to the hat store.

At the end of the day, SpongeBob lets Mystery sleep in his bed and promises that they will be friends forever. The next day, he rides past Squidward on his bike - which hits a rock sending Squidward off a cliff and causing him to explode. Once arriving at the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob ties up Mystery outside like in old western movies. Then, Scooter arrives with his friend, mistaking Mystery for a kiddie ride. As he finds a quarter, he tries to look for it, saying "I can't find the coin slot. Here it is!" Mystery kicks Scooter and into a massive explosion. "Help! Kiddie ride on the loose!" screams Scooter's friend. Mr. Krabs runs to the scene and is shocked, thinking a monster is scaring away customers. He demands that the horse be released into the wild because he is scaring off the customers, telling SpongeBob "It's either you or Mystery." SpongeBob has Mystery shoved in a cupboard and tells her that she only needs to stay there until Patrick finishes the stable he asked him to build - needless to say, Patrick has a board nailed to his forehead sitting with a blank look on his face. SpongeBob starts to go back to his job, with only eight more hours in his job left.

Twelve seconds later, Mystery peers out of the cupboard, and SpongeBob lets off a warning for her and knows that she's hungry. Mystery eats a Krabby Patty, but then she whines, and then SpongeBob warns him, because Krabs has heard it, and asks, "Is that horse here?", and SpongeBob replies "No, Mr. Krabs. I was just doing my imitation of Mystery", and he does a fake, pathetic nicker. Mr. Krabs tells SpongeBob to "keep working on it," calling it "terrible," and he walks out, and SpongeBob is relieved and he says Mystery "no more hijinks." Squidward comes to the order window, but Mystery eats the order before Squidward gets there. SpongeBob thinks that the Krusty Krab is haunted, and before SpongeBob can leave, Squidward says that there are no ghosts. Squidward starts lecturing SpongeBob; meanwhile, Mystery is stealing customers' orders from their tables. Squidward's lecture goes as follows: "In case you've forgotten, here's how things work. I order the food, you cook the food, the customer gets the food. We do that for forty years and then we die. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me, what do you say?" Squidward then sees Mystery as SpongeBob puts Mystery back in the cupboard yelling not to tell Mr. Krabs, adding "I got it all under control!", and Squidward just says "Just get my order!" and he walks out. Mystery eats SpongeBob's hat, spatula, all of the Krabby Patties, the stove, and Old Man Jenkins. From Mystery's stomach, we hear "I don't want to be a burden." The customers get aggravated and start to revolt. Then Squidward says that they "have a minor situation going on in the kitchen", and a man asks him about where their food is. Another man yells that he's "so hungry", a woman says that "This is my only lunch hour" and Tom asks about Old Man Jenkins' whereabouts. Then, Squidward says that the customers should "Take it easy" and adds "the food's no good here anyway." This causes Mr. Krabs to come out and ask Squidward "Squidward, what is going on here?!" to which he replies, "Why don't you go ask Cowbob RanchPants and his faithful companion Sir Eats-a-Lot?"

Mystery belches up Old Man Jenkins, apparently after getting a bellyache because of eating all the Krabby Patties. Mr. Krabs walks in and thinks he is seeing things, but he isn't and demands that the horse be released back into the wild, and SpongeBob pleads with him not to have Mystery gotten rid of. Mr. Krabs is touched by the story and continues on to tell SpongeBob about the story of his best friend: "I was five years old and me father gave me a dollar. I loved that dollar, loved it like a brother. Me and that dollar went everywhere together." Then SpongeBob asks about what happened to the dollar, Krabs answers, "And one day at the beach, it was so hot and I was so thirsty! I spent it on a soda. My best friend!" and starts to weep. After regaining his composure he states that "The kitchen is no place for a live horse!", which causes the customers to spit out their food. Before during and after this scene, we can see Squidward, and later a customer weeping until a bowl of onions is seen beside them. SpongeBob takes Mystery outside and tells her "You belong in the wild." He turns his back on her and the horse walks away and when Patrick walks up, still with the board on his head from earlier, he tells Mystery to "just get out of here" and he walks away, and he says that "she's gone, and I'll never see her again." Mr. Krabs comes up and says that he did the proper thing. Squidward interrupts the conversation to let Mr. Krabs know that the safe is empty because Mystery had an after-dinner salad: all the money in the safe. Mr. Krabs screams "GET THAT HORSE!" and SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs go running after Mystery into the horizon.

The episode ends with Patrick trying to get into the hat store to buy a hat, but can't because the board on his head from earlier is too wide to fit through the door.
