SpongeBob SquarePants is asleep in his bed then wakes up and realizes that it is Sunday, and therefore decides to have an ice cream sundae for breakfast. However, he sees he has no normal ingredients (Ice cream, etc.), so he creates a "sundae" made from onions, ketchup, and peanuts from a peanut plant he had been growing in his window. The sundae gives SpongeBob halitosis, which he does not realize. After breakfast, SpongeBob begins his Sunday to-do list, which consists says "Go to Work" many times. He then takes out a small card that consists of saying "hi" to everyone in town. Everyone in town is disgusted by the smell of SpongeBob's breath, and avoids him. He is very confused by this, and asks Patrick if he notices anything wrong with him. Patrick, not having a nose, is unaffected by his foul breath. He suggests that maybe everybody hates his laugh, and after a long and very irritating chuckle; SpongeBob flatly asks his friend if he's kidding. Patrick then comes to the conclusion that SpongeBob is ugly, and does a "Reflection Test". SpongeBob is shocked by this, and isolates himself in his home. Later, Patrick visits SpongeBob, who has now become a hermit. Patrick attempts to teach him to be proud of his ugliness. It works, and SpongeBob's confidence grows, so they go to the cinema. When they go in and sit down, all the fish still avoid SpongeBob. Angered that no one has the nerve to face SpongeBob's so-called ugliness, Patrick goes into a maniacal rage and forces the other viewers to look at SpongeBob. They all panic and run out of the theater, due to SpongeBob's breath. Patrick eventually gets hungry, so they go to get a snack, but no one is at the counter, so SpongeBob gives Patrick some of his sundae. Then Patrick goes to the bathroom. When a guy runs away from Patrick in the bathroom, he thinks he has caught the "ugly" from SpongeBob. SpongeBob smells Patrick's extremely foul breath, and comes to the realization that they are not ugly, and simply have bad breath from the sundae. After they realize this, the two begin to run around shouting "WE STINK!", melting down the movie theater with their corrosive stench. In the last scene, SpongeBob and Patrick run into Squidward, who is looking at wigs in a window display, and SpongeBob says, "Guess what, Squidward? WE STINK!" Squidward looks confused as SpongeBob and Patrick run away laughing.
