“If you call the customers by their names, they keep coming to spend more of their green back! So I want you two to learn the names of every customer.”
Mr. Krabs

"Good Ol' Whatshisname" is the third segment of the fourth episode of season 5, and it is paired with "Spy Buddies" and "Boat Smarts." In this episode, Squidward competes with SpongeBob to learn the names of all the Krusty Krab's customer in order to win a cruise vacation.



Mr. Krabs tells SpongeBob and Squidward to learn the names of every customer as he learned that customers come back more if they call them by their names. He turns it into a contest and the winner wins a brochure for a tropical vacation. Squidward thinks he'll win the vacation and is eager to win.

He sees SpongeBob calling the customers by their names, and whenever he tries to learn everyone's names, SpongeBob says their name right after. He learns that he has compiled all the names in a book, and uses it to learn everyone's name.

Squidward tells Mr. Krabs he won, but Mr. Krabs hadn't been keeping track and tells him to learn the name of the “mystery guy” to get his reward. He asks him for his name, which is “What Zit Tooya,” but Squidward misunderstands and asks again. He yells out his name again, but he still doesn't understand.

He spills juice on him as he leaves so he can check his jacket to see if there's an ID in there, but he takes it back. Soon after, Squidward distracts him to take his wallet and runs up a building to check his name, while What Zit Tooya and a police officer chase him. He realizes the mystery customer's name is actually What Zit Tooya and gets arrested. At jail, Mr. Krabs gives him the brochure and gets excited, only to find out the brochure was the prize.
