At SpongeBob's House, Patrick and SpongeBob are dancing to music. The music is shaking Squidward's house and Squidward tells them to lower the volume and accidentally swallows his Clarinet. SpongeBob comes over to Squidward's house and tries to get the clarinet out. He gets some of it out, but not all of it. The clarinet reed is still in Squidward's throat, causing Squidward to make clarinet sounds. Squidward is taken to Sandy's Treedome where Sandy tells SpongeBob about her new invention which includes the submarine that she is going to shrink, so she can remove the reed from Squidward's throat. She entrusts SpongeBob with the responsibility of guarding the submarine and SpongeBob does so by walking around, looking out for any trouble. Patrick walks by and encourages SpongeBob to guard the submarine inside the submarine.

They go in there and guard it when Patrick presses the shrink button, shrinking the submarine. Sandy comes back and notices them. She guides them to Squidward's brain. There, SpongeBob and Patrick start to hit parts of the brain, causing Squidward to lose self-control. For a moment, SpongeBob and Patrick actually fight each other for control of the vehicle and land in Squidward's stomach, where the gastric acid starts to eat the submarine away. Patrick thinks of an idea: If Squidward can drink soda, then bubbles would surround them and it would refuel the submarine. Squidward drinks soda and the plan suddenly starts to work. They travel through the throat where SpongeBob removes the clarinet reed by doing what he was born to do: dance. He returns to the submarine. Now that the job is done Squidward wants them out of his body and tells them to get out of it : Patrick mishears this and presses a grow button. Sandy, SpongeBob and Squidward say, "No!" at the same time and then we see Squidward come to work at the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs is startled when he sees the giant submarine in his stomach. At the end, in the submarine, Patrick complains about the submarine's toilet being clogged and Squidward gets frustrated.
