“I'm waiting for you, so we can play the day away! Oh, barnacles! You're wearing that dumb hat, again! Every time you wear that stupid thing, you're, you're gone for the whole day!”

"No Hat for Pat" is the first segment of the twentieth episode of season 6, and it is paired up with "Toy Store of Doom." In this episode, Patrick gets a job at the Krusty Krab so he can get a special hat.



Patrick wakes up outside of SpongeBob's house and wants to go jellyfishing with him, only to realize he's wearing his work hat. He gets sad because that means he has to go to work, and vows to get a job. At the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs sees a bunch of tourists, but they end up passing by his restaurant. He sees Patrick standing around, and gets the idea to use him to direct people towards his restaurant.

He ends up doing a bad job at doing his job, but Mr. Krabs still gives him a hat anyways as it pays to advertise. He starts falling down constantly upon wearing the hat. Mr. Krabs hears a customer saying she'd pay money to see that, and also sees that the tourists are capturing pictures of Patrick falling down, so he uses his act to make money.

Patrick gets a bloody nose after entertaining the customers, but Mr. Krabs still makes him do his job. 7 hours later, the customers get bored with his act, so Mr. Krabs modifies his act to make it more exciting. At night, Patrick is covered in bruises, but when SpongeBob realizes this and wants to talk to Mr. Krabs, Patrick stops him as he never had a job before now.

Later, SpongeBob goes to the Krusty Krab to see that Mr. Krabs is holding a show where Patrick falls into a bucket of spiny sea urchins. Up at the top of the platform, Patrick makes Squidward hold his hat, but is unable to fall down, making Mr. Krabs annoyed. He asks Squidward to push him, but when he does, he ends up falling down himself.

Patrick grabs his hat and puts it on, finally making him fall and realize the hat makes him fall. Squidward lands in the bucket of urchins and Patrick lands on him. The customers get angry at Mr. Krabs as they wanted to see two guys get hurt, and tear down Mr. Krabs to his underwear. He fires Patrick, but SpongeBob still allows him to wear his hat any time he likes.
