[edit] Plot

The episode opens in a black void, with various things flying by. The French Narrator signals that things getting strange is an indication of being in the Tidal Zone. He pours into a cuo from the Star house and then drops it to its original location. Meanwhile on The Patrick Show!, Patrick and Squidina introduce Captain Quasar and Pat-Tron as guests on the show. Pat-Tron soon glitches from laughing too hard at a joke Patrick makes. While trying to fix Pat-Tron's laugh track, Patrick gets his shrink ray stuck to his head and accidentally activates it, shrinking Squidina.

Pat-Tron chases Patrick around the room, while Bunny and Cecil enter. Patrick stops running to place a pizza order with Cecil, and while doing so, shrinks down Bunny and Cecil. While giving the shrink ray back to Pat-Tron, Patrick accidentally shrinks himself down. Captain Quasar and Pat-Tron then fly away in their ship. The family explores the house while being at their small size. They end up swimming in the toilet water, until they fall out due to Tinkle licking the water. Meanwhile, GrandPat is seen playing a VR game of him running over pedestrians. Water from upstairs sprays him and shorts out the VR set.

GrandPat goes to the bathroom and finds the family shrunk, thinking they are bugs, so he tries to spray them with his onion breath. The family is snatched away by the Dartfish family, who shares peppermint with them. Soon after, GrandPat's eye reaches their kitchen door. The Dartfish family run away while Bunny kicks GrandPat's eye. The Star family then try to target GrandPat for scaring the Dartfish family away. Patrick and Squidina drop cake molds on him, and the family then hit him with kitchen supplies and sprays, and also remove the kitchen floor tiles. GrandPat uses his dentures to get the family, who are then further shrunk down by Rubedor.

Rubedor introduces the Star family to the futuristic city, Schmandor. While the Star family appreciates the city, Cecil's singing causes the city to fall apart, due to it being made out of glass. GrandPat soon approaches the family with his scooter, but cannot run them over due to them being too small. The family jumps inside the scooter to mess up the engine, causing the scooter malfunction and go after GrandPat. GrandPat soon catches the scooter, accidentally driving into the time closet, landing in a tomb of mummies in Egypt, now needing to get home.

Patrick finds a can of Jumbo Grow and pours it over himself and the family, but it only shrinks them down even further, now to subatomic level. It is revealed that the bottle actually grows plants, but shrinks everything else. Cecil finds a light, and pulls them through, with them ending up in front of their house. They notice a giant eye in the sky, revealed to be Sandy, observing them in her treedome. She soon notices a huge live-action eye above her treedome, revealed to be the French Narrator's magnifying glass. While the French Narrator concludes the episode, another pair of huge eyes surround him. The French Narrator runs away, and the eyes wink at the audience.
