“Hey, dude, keep it down. I'm not doing any evil this week. I'm on vacation!”
Man Ray

"Man Ray Returns" is the first segment of the fourth episode of season 11, and it is paired with "Larry the Floor Manager." In this episode, Man Ray rents Squidward's house and takes a vacation from being evil, but SpongeBob and Patrick think he is up to no good.



SpongeBob and Patrick are playing Junior Crime Breakers, until they see Squidward leaving. They think he's moving away, until he tells them that he's just going on vacation. He also tells them that a guest will rent his place and that they shouldn't bother him. Afterwards, they continue playing until a taxi comes and the guest comes out and goes inside the house.

The two try to get in the house quietly to take a look at him without bothering him. SpongeBob tries looking by tossing his eye on the top window, but the guest shuts the window, flattening his eye. They then give him a sand pie to welcome him to the town, and get invited in. As he finishes up in the bathroom, SpongeBob and Patrick go to him to ask if he could join the Junior Crime Breakers, but realize the guest is actually Man Ray.

They run to Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy for help, but they are taking their cryonic nap. They resolve this by dealing with the situation on their own as Mermaid Pants and Barnacle Star. They get into the house using a pile of trash cans, and gather several objects in Squidward's bedroom that can be used as weapons. They go downstairs and fight Man Ray with these weapons, much to his surprise.

Eventually, a storm occurs and Man Ray brings SpongeBob and Patrick to the top to tell them he just wanted a vacation, but they don't believe him. He stops being normal and attempts to fight the two, but they all get scared by the storm and fall into the house. Squidward calls Man Ray to tell him the storm changed his plans and he's coming home, but it turns out he had given him a phony check and leaves the home as his Scuber had arrived. SpongeBob and Patrick fix everything with their super saliva, but when Squidward comes home and shuts the door, the house crashes down.
