“That imitation stuff really works.”

"Mimic Madness" is the first segment of the third episode of season 10, and it is paired with "House Worming." In this episode, SpongeBob's imitations amuse people, but he soon loses his own identity.



Mr. Krabs tells his employees their duties at the Krusty Krab, and then goes into his office. Squidward imitates one of his lines, but when Mr. Krabs hears, he tells him he was just doing an imitation, which is the sincerest form of flattery. After hearing this, SpongeBob is convinced to imitate several people to flatter them.

He imitates several people and they all enjoy his imitations, but after awhile of him constantly doing imitations, they get annoyed. Mr. Krabs notices this and says SpongeBob's gotten the Mocking Mimicry Madness.

Sandy, Mr. Krabs, Plankton, Squidward, and Patrick confront SpongeBob at his house, only to realize his condition's gotten even worse and is unable to stop himself. He runs away to a cave, where he sings a song about how he doesn't remember who he is.

The others catch up to him to see if he's alright. Sandy gets the idea to paint them all similar to SpongeBob and act like him so SpongeBob will remember who he is. After awhile of them imitating SpongeBob, he remembers who he is, only for the others to have obtained the Mocking Mimicry Madness.
