"Gary Takes a Bath" is the second segment of the 33rd episode of SpongeBob SquarePants. It was originally aired alongside its partner episode on Nicktoons TV and made available on the SpongeBob SquarePants: Sea Stories DVD before airing on Nickelodeon itself on July 26, 2003.


The Gary clock is ticking and SpongeBob knows it's time for Gary's bath, but the snail doesn't want to take a bath. SpongeBob tries to put Gary in the bathtub, but he refuses. So SpongeBob tries constant tricks to get Gary in the bathtub. First, he tries throwing a ball to the bathtub. However, it's a "boomerang pet ball", so it comes right back. Next, he straps a bomb to his chest and telling Gary that it will explode if he doesn't take a bath.

Gary doesn't move and as a result; the bomb explodes. His next attempt is sending subliminal messages and he then tries calling a French restaurant. Next, he plays leapfrog, but just ends up breaking Gary's shell. He then tries to bribe Gary saying he'll give a dollar for the next person who takes a bath, but out of nowhere, Mr. Krabs shows up in his bathtub and takes the dollar. SpongeBob tries dancing and a fake treasure hunt, but they fail as well. For his last attempt, SpongeBob loads up with water and tries to shoot it at Gary. He corners Gary in a tree, but when SpongeBob shoot water at him, he thinks he bathed Gary too hard and removed his skin. The real Gary steals SpongeBob's ladder which now leaves SpongeBob stuck on top of the tree. Then, SpongeBob notices Gary sneaking towards a mud puddle. SpongeBob gives Gary a 3-second count to get away from the mud puddle. However, when Gary doesn't listen, SpongeBob accidentally falls in a mud puddle, which forces him to take a bath instead.
