“A good neighbor doesn't bother me on Sunday!”

"Good Neighbors" is the second segment of the fourth episode of season 4, and it is paired with "Skill Crane." In this episode, SpongeBob and Patrick ruin Squidward's Sunday.



SpongeBob wakes up Squidward at his house so he can go to work, only for him to kick him out as it's Sunday and the Krusty Krab is closed on that day. SpongeBob tries to deliver his newspaper for him, but bumps into Patrick who thinks the newspaper is a monster and the two panic, annoying Squidward.

Meanwhile, he gets ready for his day when SpongeBob and Patrick come in and appoint Squidward president of their club. He makes them paint the leaves of the trees polka dots as his first decree to keep them busy. They quickly finish and come back to Squidward, but accidentally shoot the paint on his face.

He stumbles out and almost gets hit by a car. The passengers think he's sick and take him to the hospital. Later, SpongeBob calls a meeting for the club, but realizes Squidward's still gone. A fish comes to do a relaxing pedicure and foot massage for Squidward, so he and Patrick check to see if he's legit and not an assassin. However, when Squidward finally comes back, his hour is up and leaves, much to his dismay.

He kicks the two out and yells at them for ruining his day. After they leave, Squidward finds a flier for a security system. He buys and installs it to prevent SpongeBob and Patrick from entering his house. However, when they come in with an apology cake, it doesn't see them as a threat. When Squidward gets angry at it, it considers him a threat, takes control of his house and kicks him out.

He realizes he's all alone now and relaxes. Meanwhile, his house is destroying town, while SpongeBob and Patrick try to find the off switch. When the house goes over Squidward, SpongeBob finds the switch to turn it off. Squidward kicks them out again, while everyone surrounds his house and makes the three do community service every Sunday for the rest of their lives.
