The Gift of Gum is the last episode from Season 4.







On one of the holidays they presumably made up; Best Friend's Day, SpongeBob gives Patrick a robo-butler, and Patrick gives SpongeBob a wad of used gum he has amassed over his entire lifetime (fondly referred to as "Gummy"), and SpongeBob finds it a better gift than his own. However, when he takes it home, it starts to scare him including a segment where a pair of underpants crawls out of the gum, slides up to SpongeBob, and says in a demonic voice "You're not Patrick!". So first, he tries to hide it in the trash bin, but when Patrick comes, he says he gave it a makeover. Then when he tries to hide it in a hole, he says he wants to look at it from a better angle. SpongeBob's plan goes awry when Patrick has Gummy placed on the front of SpongeBob's house calling it "A million times better" Then SpongeBob pretends to steal it, but instead frees some people stuck in the wad of gum. Finally, the gum explodes onto SpongeBob's Pineapple, Squidward's Easter Island Head, and Patrick's rock, and sticks to SpongeBob, Squidward, and Sandy. At the end, SpongeBob gives it back to Patrick and eats all of the gum to free SpongeBob, but burps it out again and covers the entire town in gum.
