SpongeBob really wants Squidward to visit his house, but Squidward doesn't. Squidward says that he likes the comfort of his own home. SpongeBob then makes his house exactly like Squidward's so Squidward will finally visit. Afterwards, he steals Squidward's vacuum cleaner, which makes Squidward come take it back, which was Patrick's idea. Squidward puts his dinner in the oven and then comes to SpongeBob's house and saw the exact replica of his living room. He is a little annoyed. Squidward sits on the exact replica of his chair and saw his coffee table. He sees his food and Art Of The Clarinet Book. He saw his pillow SpongeBob was fluffing. It looked like the one Squidward's Mother made for him. Then Squidward sees his hallway, and he saw the chip in the painting from when the moved into his own house. Then he saw his bathroom. He sees his medicine cabinet and he sees his rash cream. But when SpongeBob shows up, Squidward screams and he slips on the rash cream too many times and his head falls into the toilet, knocking himself out.
Squidward woke up and thinks he had a dream about himself visiting SpongeBob. But he wasn't dreaming. Squidward screams to SpongeBob. He tells SpongeBob he has to go to the bathroom again, but it was a lie. He runs upstairs, looking for his vacuum cleaner. Squidward exactly opens the door, and turns on the light, he finds out he is in the gallery room and spots all 492 self portraits hanging on the wall. Squidward becomes scared, but then he get mad. He looks for the vacuum cleaner in the closet and finds it, but it is stuck in the closet. Squidward pulls until his vacuum comes out. The vacuum hits Squidward and he crashes into the wall, tilting his self-portraits. He falls down the stairs, and he spits out the vacuum, and he walks out of SpongeBob's house, but when he goes outside, he realizes that his house had vaporized due to a fire. Squidward had forgotten to bring the casserole which was later on fire and caused Squidward's house to burn up. SpongeBob then told Squidward to stay at his house. Squidward imagined what it would be like. He wound up staying at the pineapple with him inside and SpongeBob and Gary sleeping outside.

- Squidward's Mom is mentioned in this episode.
- Patrick said that Squidward visited his house once. In Patrick SmartPants, he tested Squidward's brain fluids inside the rock. And in I'm with Stupid, he told Patrick his parents arrived(he did not enter the house though). Squidward also visited Patrick's rock in Breath of Fresh Squidward, The Thing, and Not Normal
- Squidward said that the pepper went all over his imported rug, although only a tiny speck went on it.
- Two games based on the episode can be played at SpongeBob.com. Cook It 'n' Book It and Squidward's Sizzlin Scare are based on looking for the vaccum and the burning casserole.
- In this episode, Squidward says he NEVER calls SpongeBob. But he called him in several other episodes. Again, this episode is a flashback.

- At the end of the episode when SpongeBob yells Squidward's name, he yells it like Dave yells "ALLVVIIN!" from Alvin and the Chipmunks.

- When Squidward enters SpongeBob's house, there is a portrait of another squid on the wall, but with an orange face and a blue shirt. But when the camera pans in front of Squidward's face when he looks at SpongeBob's living room, the painting has a green face and a white shirt.
- In Not Normal, Squidward has 483 self-portraits. But in this episode, he has 492. This episode probably took place after Not Normal, or he must of took 9 of them out in order to save room.

- When Squidward saw his 492 self-portraits, One of them was a statue of Squidward, possibly the same fromAtlantis SquarePantis since it had the leaf.
- When Squidward saw his 492 self-portraits, the first one the camera directed on was a clown. In "Tentacle-Vision", the clown had no tears and had little x's on it's eyes, but in this episode, the clown's eyes were open with no x's, and it had tears, and the nose was tear shaped just like Squidward's, but the clown's nose was red When Squidward went in SpongeBob's house, he didn't see the kitchen, the garage, or the attic.
