The episode begins with SpongeBob making arts and crafts with Gary, and SpongeBob wonders if he should make something for Squidward since they had newly became friends. He makes a friendship bracelet for Squidward and he goes to his house to show it to him. Squidward claims he can make a better friendship bracelet, so SpongeBob invites him to his house and Squidward tries to make one. He discovers it's very hard after spending an hour on it, so he resorts to SpongeBob's help. SpongeBob hands him the friendship bracelet making manual and in an hour he makes a very good friendship bracelet. They give each other the bracelets, and SpongeBob states he's a great friend, and he might even be his best friend. Squidward questions this statement as he thought Patrick was his best friend. SpongeBob is struck with horror because ever since Squidward became friends with SpongeBob he had forgotten about Patrick. The narrator questions if Squidward and SpongeBob will still be friends, and says that if the viewers want to find out they should watch the next few episodes. The episode ends.
