At Sandy's treedome, Sandy has a lot of work to do, and SpongeBob is helping her rake the leaves. She is fretting and worrying, and SpongeBob asks her why. She explains that she is going into hibernation in a week, and have to get their work done quickly, so they can have as much play time as possible. SpongeBob promises to commit all the time he has not already given to Mr. Krabs to her. However, their activities, which include sandboarding, trying to knock each other off the top of the "Sea Needle", "Extreme Jacks", and "Find the Hay in the Needlestack", prove extremely dangerous, and SpongeBob, being not as tough as Sandy, can barely avoid getting killed, and at one point is reduced to a literal puddle. He goes into hiding to escape from her, and Sandy, worrying for his safety, forces everyone in Bikini Bottom to form a search party for SpongeBob. Sandy has them search in dangerous places such as sulfur fields and a poison sea urchin cove, and after days of searching with no success, the people decide to hide from Sandy as well. Still frantic, Sandy now starts literally destroying the city while looking for SpongeBob. The people, who are hiding under Patrick's Rock, discover that SpongeBob is under the rock too and throw him out for Sandy to find. Sandy is relieved to see him and gives SpongeBob a bone-crushing hug. She says that they have just enough time to go "atom smashing" before she hibernates, but SpongeBob finally explains to her that she is hurting him. While he does so, he realizes that Sandy has fallen asleep, and the relieved SpongeBob then falls asleep as well. Patrick, eating an ice cream and carrying a grocery bag, appears and sees the people under his rock, exclaiming "Who are you people?!" as the episode ends.
