SpongeBob explains that he is practicing for an oral report that he must do for boating school. Squidward says that "public speaking" causes stress, but SpongeBob explains how he is good at "public speaking". SpongeBob then walks out, ready to give the customers their orders, and gets scared because they are acting zombie-like. SpongeBob realizes that he has stage fright.
