“Everybody's gone. But I swear that I will keep the memory of Bikini Bottom alive, by living out their lives for them!”

"Gone" is the second segment of the fourth episode of season 6, and it is paired with "Not Normal." In this episode, SpongeBob wakes up to find that he is the only citizen left at Bikini Bottom.



SpongeBob wakes up and goes into the kitchen to fill Gary's food bowl. However, when he calls him, Gary doesn't come, and when he looks for him, he can't find him and assumes he got an early start. He goes to the Krusty Krab, but doesn't realize Mr. Krabs and Squidward aren't there.

When he comes back home, he sees that Gary has still not eaten his food yet and also realizes everyone in town is gone. He promises to live out everyone's lives for them to keep the memory of Bikini Bottom, so the next day, he imitates the other characters interacting with himself.

However, he gets upset when trying to imitate Mrs. Puff as he can't, but realizes with her not there, he can make a license for himself and takes a boat home with him. He starts living his regular life with the boat and calls him Boaty, but at some point, the boat suspects that SpongeBob has made a puppet of his old best friend.

He walks into his closet and discusses with a meat puppet of Patrick, but when they realize Boaty is watching, SpongeBob gets out. Three days later, he is writing in his diary to run for it when the coast is clear. When he gets out of the plant he's hiding in, he encounters Boaty and runs away, only to constantly end up at boat-related areas.

He gets out an axe from the cinema after he gets out of a racing movie's theater, and strikes a bus which all the citizens of Bikini Bottom pile out of. It turns out they were celebrating National No SpongeBob Day for a couple of days, and after SpongeBob learns and appreciates the day, they go out to celebrate National No Patrick Day.
