[edit] Plot

The episode starts out with SpongeBob jellyfishing in Jellyfish Fields. Shortly after, he spots somebody wrestling a giant clam. He takes out his field guide book, and identifies her as a 'land squirrel'. SpongeBob thinks she is in trouble, and goes to wrestle the clam himself.

The squirrel manages to escape the clam, but SpongeBob ends up inside of it. The squirrel then rescues SpongeBob, and throws the clam out of the area. The squirrel introduces herself as Sandy Cheeks. SpongeBob inquires about the helmet she wears, and Sandy tells him that it is her air helmet. SpongeBob does not know what air is, but claims to love it to impress her. Sandy then invites him to her Treedome for "Texas tea" and cookies. SpongeBob quickly runs over to Patrick and tells him everything that happened. He tells SpongeBob that 'putting on airs' is fancy talk. Patrick tells SpongeBob to hold his pinky finger up high if he wants to be fancy.

SpongeBob later arrives at Sandy's Treedome, and the water level drops. He panics and tells Sandy that there is no water. She tells him that there is only air. SpongeBob lies about him having no problem, and he tries hard to breathe. He does not realize that sea creatures breathe water to survive.

Sandy gives SpongeBob a tour of her Treedome, showing him her oak tree house, a bird bath, among other things. During this, SpongeBob quickly sneaks over to the bird bath, which is filled with water; he eventually figures out that he needs water to breathe. SpongeBob gives Sandy some flowers, and she gets a vase for them.

Meanwhile, Patrick, watching from outside the Treedome, tells SpongeBob to keep his pinky finger up high. Sandy comes back and puts the flowers in a vase filled with water on the picnic table. SpongeBob tries to resist drinking the water while Sandy gets the tea and cookies. SpongeBob eventually drinks it and runs for the door, declaring that he is a quitter. Patrick thinks SpongeBob is shy of Sandy, and he enters the Treedome and tries to convince him to stay.

After a moment, Patrick also realizes that there is no water. The two struggle to leave the Treedome. Both Patrick and SpongeBob eventually dry up on the grass. Sandy eventually returns and gives them water-filled helmets.

In the end, Sandy proposes a toast to new friends, and they drink their tea. SpongeBob and Patrick gulp down the tea-filled water in their new helmets, with their pinky fingers pointing up.
