SpongeBob is out jellyfishing. He catches a jellyfish, gets some of its jelly, and lets it go. He names it "Twelvy", due to it being his twelfth catch of the day. He then sees a rare blue jellyfish which he calls "No Name", who is apparently the only jellyfish in the fields who he has never caught, and compulsively tries to get him but to no avail. Later, SpongeBob goes on his lunch break at the Krusty Krab, and puts the jelly on a krabby patty. After a customer asks about the patty and tries it, he sings a song proclaiming its greatness and puts jelly on the patties of all the other customers, who enjoy it as well. Mr. Krabs sees the profitability, and puts the new patty on the menu. SpongeBob, to his great delight, is tasked to go out and gather as many jellyfish as he can, though he asks Krabs to keep the jellyfish comfortable. He continues to catch jellyfish, and Krabs continues to demand more, until Jellyfish Fields is completely deserted.

SpongeBob concludes that there are "no more" jellyfish to catch, and begins to walk home. After several close encounters and strange events, No Name captures him in a jar much in the way that SpongeBob catches jellyfish. No Name then takes SpongeBob to a secret factory, where he discovers that Krabs is cruelly treating and killing the jellyfish to extract their jelly for more profit. Realizing that Mr. Krabs tricked him into catching all the jellyfish and broke his word to keep them comfortable, SpongeBob then understands why No Name brought him here in the first place. He angrily confronts Mr. Krabs for his actions and decides to free the jellyfish to no avail. Eventually, Krabs accidentally opens the voice activated door by saying the codeword: "open", freeing all the jellyfish, who then all sting Krabs at once, giving him pain as consequence for his actions against them, and No Name is finally named by SpongeBob: Friend. Having felt so much pain from the jellyfish stings, Mr. Krabs finally decided to take the jelly off the menu for good.
