SpongeBob tries to fall asleep but fails. He decides that eating a sandwich would help, but he accidentally leaves his refrigerator door open. The open refrigerator gives him a bad case of a sickness like the common cold called the suds, causing him to sneeze bubbles out of his pores. Unfortunately Patrick foolishly tells SpongeBob going to the doctor is a terrifying experience, and SpongeBob asks Patrick to cure him but he only makes it worse. Sandy then takes SpongeBob to a real doctor, who prescribes the “sponge treatment”. The treatment cures SpongeBob completely and he is given a lollipop. Patrick then fakes having the suds and gets the painful “starfish treatment”.
