You Shoe's Untied: Pat gets a new pair of shoes, but doesn't know how to tie his laces. When SpongeBob offers to demonstrate lace tying to Patrick, he forgets how to do. SpongeBob suffers various calamities, trying to make it through his day with his laces untied and him tripping over everything. In the end, it's Gary who reminds SpongeBob how to tie his laces by teaching him a groovy song to help him remember. Squid's Day Off: Mr. Krabs takes the day off from the Krusty Krab and puts Squidward in charge for the day. Squidward seizes the opportunity to take the day off as well and he leaves SpongeBob alone to man the store. However, at home, Squidward continues to imagine the calamities that might happen if SpongeBob were left to his own devices and it drives him crazy. He repeatedly rushes back to the Krusty Krab to check up on things only to find an innocent SpongeBob ready for work. In the end, Squidward decides it's just easier to stay there and work.

two very different episodes

Your Shoe's Untied-the least memorable of the two segments in this episode by far, but still a joy to watch. There are plenty of laughs and cartoonish sight gags, and the song that closes it is fun if a little cheesy.

Squid's Day Off-a much darker, weirder story that is, consequently, far funnier than it's cheery predecessor. There are some pretty grotesque visuals here, but they work as more than shock value or cheap gross out comedy, instead they're successful additions to the entire episode's oddly surreal atmosphere and absurd sense of humor.
