At Goo Lagoon, SpongeBob and Patrick are enjoying the sun and the waves. When SpongeBob remarks on how cool Larry the Lifeguard is. Patrick does not agree. SpongeBob then says that he is just as cool as Larry, and "if I'm not, let me be struck by - (thunder crashes) - a flying ice cream truck! (Shadow falls on him) AND LIVE!" Larry helps him up when the truck falls on him and notices ice cream on his nose. Thinking that it is sunscreen, he offers SpongeBob to help him with his lifeguard duties. Just when Larry is about to leave for a tanning booth, he hears that someone is drowning. He saves him, and then leaves SpongeBob alone. There is however only one problem...he cannot swim. (He lives underwater!)
SpongeBob is terrified that everyone is going to drown and makes everyone get out of the water with ice cream. He binds them with Police tape and settles down to relax. Patrick, hearing the ice cream announcement too late, rushes out into the water, gets butt cramps and immediately sinks. SpongeBob must then save him but when he finally gets out there (using a boat mobile he borrowed from the parking lot), Patrick destroys it and they both sink. Larry then comes back and "saves" them from the ankle deep water. At the end of the episode, he is teaching the two boys to swim.
- Although the fish in Goo Lagoon fear sharks, they themselves are made up of a minority of sharks.
- When SpongeBob raises his arms to call the beach-goers to get some ice cream, if you watch very closely, you'll see, even though he's saying he's giving ice cream to everyone, he never lowers his arms.
- It is revealed that Old Man Jenkins is Larry's father when he says "Just like we raised him", while talking about Larry.
