The episode starts with a figure like Plankton opening the safe for the formula inside the Krusty Krab. It is actually Mr. Krabs when SpongeBob turns on the light. Then Squidward comes in and says "Hi", but leaves soon after because Mr. Krabs asked the two employees if they could work on a mission. SpongeBob accepts the mission in a loud manner and soon after, Patrick joins in loudly. Mr. Krabs gives them both a talking Krabby Patty.
At SpongeBob's house, SpongeBob and Patrick use the patty to listen to the mission followed by a self-destruct notice; the patty explodes 10 seconds after the notice. To get the Spy Gadgets, they go to the Treedome to get weapons and gadgets from Sandy. She shows them all her gadgets and says that the boys can't use them, but Patrick uses Sandy's favorite gadget, the Knockout Ray, to put Sandy to sleep, allowing them to take the Gadgets.
They go downtown and check out what Plankton is doing. He enters the shop, Guppies R Us. Nothing is too suspicious. Then Plankton buys a stamp and SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs all the stuff he has done. Later on, SpongeBob and Patrick are "quietly" behind Plankton although he can hear them. Eventually, Plankton gets burned due to the magnifying glass SpongeBob had been using to allow close attention.
Later that night, SpongeBob and Patrick are at the Chum Bucket roof trying to get in the "spy way". They get caught by Plankton and get a menu to eat. Patrick needs to go to the toilet and he becomes very tempted to go, but instead of that, the laser gun down his pants fires and destroys the Chum Bucket. Plankton gets out a blimp from under the restaurant and he hovers over the Krusty Krab, making Mr. Krabs thinking that night had come early. Squidward informs him that it is the "time of the month" for Plankton to strike again. When Mr. Krabs tells the people to get into their positions, Squidward runs into the Men's Toilet. Plankton plays loud music to drive the Krusty Krab customers away, but Mr. Krabs says "Alright, Plankton, you want my customers so badly? You can have 'em!", and sucks the customers -- and somehow, Squidward -- into a cannon, launching them at the blimp. After the customers fail to destroy the blimp, Patrick jumps into the cannon, gets fired at the blimp and hits it, releasing the blimp's air and causing it to fly into the Krusty Krab, blowing up on contact and destroying the restaurant. Plankton then says "I always win!" SpongeBob replies and says that Plankton never wins. It is then revealed that Plankton was Mr. Krabs in disguise and Mr. Krabs was a robot with Plankton inside. The reason given is that they both had bet that Mr. Krabs could steal his own formula, playing the role of Plankton, and vice versa.
Then Patrick says "Not so fast!" and rips off a costume, revealing him to be Squidward, then SpongeBob questions another Squidward and rips off his skin (revealing him to be the real Squidward). The fake Squidward then takes off his costume, becoming Sandy, then takes off that costume to become SpongeBob. SpongeBob then takes off his disguise and turns into Patrick, but it turns out to be a joke and they both rip off their costumes and turn back to normal. They all laugh until another Patrick comes in and bewilders SpongeBob, ending the episode.

- Mary makes a cameo appearance again.
- "Guppies R Us" is a parody of Babies "R" Us and Toys "R" Us.
- The intro music to this episode is the same song as the credits to Action League NOW: The Series.
- Patrick does not seem to worry when the Krabby Patty exploded; the reason is starfish such as himself can regenerate themselves.
- This is the first and only time there has been a front combination lock at the Krusty Krab.
- The combination to the lock is 2, 6, 8 and 4.
- When Patrick is looking at SpongeBob through the straw, SpongeBob parodies James Bond, with Bond's pistol being replaced by SpongeBob's spatula.
- After the Chum Bucket gets destroyed, the setting suddenly turns to daytime.
- The quote "This patty will self-destruct in ten seconds" is a reference to the film Mission: Impossible, when the tape says "This message will self-destruct in ten seconds."
- When this episode is on Nickelodeon, the info mistakenly calls it "SpyBob."
- On the chalkboard, when Mr. Krabs put baby clothes, the way he put it, it looks like he put "baby" and "clothes" separately, like saying Plankton bought a baby and clothes.
- It is unknown what Plankton was using the Mail Stamp for.
- It is shown that there is a blimp under the Chum Bucket.
