182b - Bumper to Bumper
One fish is doing the boating course perfectly with Mrs. Puff, and then it is SpongeBob's turn. Mrs. Puff gets very angry at SpongeBob after he fails the test again. Soon, Mrs. Puff realizes SpongeBob is afraid of the course and has him drive on an abandoned road where he passes his test and gets a license. Mrs. Puff tells him to keep repeating "Focus on the road, there is nothing but the road" to get his confidence back. SpongeBob follows her instructions and imagines himself doing crazy driving tricks and poses as he proceeds to repeat the phrase. Mrs. Puff later tells him to safely dock the vessel as the last step, but due to constantly repeating the phrase, SpongeBob has mesmerized himself into a daze and cannot focus on what he is doing. He soon drives out of the road and freaks out. SpongeBob gets back on a road, but is on a highway and he is gripped with fear. A police officer had seen them and thought they were reckless drivers because Mrs. Puff crossed the county line which she shouldn't have done, because she was on parole as revealed at the beginning of the episode. At the end the police officer rips up SpongeBob's license. As Mrs. Puff goes to jail she says "SpongeBob, I'll get you for this! I'll get you!" and the episode ends.
