“Listen, Uncle Captain Blue! We don't have much time. Cousin BlackJack has my parents held captive at his house!”

"BlackJack" is the third segment of the thirteenth episode of season 5, and it is paired with "Picture Day" and "Pat No Pay." In this episode, SpongeBob finds out that his cousin, BlackJack, is out of jail and thinks he's kidnapped his parents, he tries to find them.



SpongeBob gets a letter from his cousin BlackJack stating he's out of jail and paid his parents a visit, and if he wants to see them again he should meet him for a wrestling match at their house. He gets scared as his old memories of his cousin weren't good ones and is scared of what he looks like now.

He goes over to his parents' house, when he sees that there was a police investigation there. He goes inside and sees a broken portrait, and thinks BlackJack has kidnapped his parents.

He sees another note from his cousin stating he'll being going to his Grandma next, so he goes over to her house next, only to find out she's fine. She tells him BlackJack has loose ends to tie up and he should hurry up or he'll miss the fun, making SpongeBob think he's got his parents tied up over a boiler.

He goes to Uncle Captain Blue's for help, but whenever he tells him his situation, he thinks he wants to do chores for him. After awhile, SpongeBob gets fed up and yells that BlackJack has his parents. Since he's retired, Blue can't do anything and tells him to go home, but still drives him over since he insists.

He is anxious while walking into the house, but gets in and goes downstairs, only to find out his parents aren't in any real danger and everything he saw wasn't what he thought. BlackJack comes over and has a wrestling match with SpongeBob, only to find out he has become significantly smaller.
