Graveyard Shift is an episode from Season 2. In it, the Krusty Krew believe they are being harassed by a former employee, the Hash-Slinging-Slasher.
One dark night, the Krusty Krew prepares for closing around 8:00 PM. A customer then approaches the Krusty Krab, asking for Krabby Patty Deluxe with a Double Chili Kelp Fry. Squidward denies this saying, "I've got a life!" Then the customer, Tom, says, "Fine is you don't want my money!" Of course, Mr. Krabs has seen an oppurtunity to make a quick buck. He promptly falls on top of Squidward, rips the closing sign, and welcomes Squidward and SpongeBob to the night shift. The doors open, and everyone tramples Squidward.
SpongeBob slides into view and gasps in awe at the thought of working forever and constantly. mr. Krabs then says he's leaving, "He has a life," and runs out the door. SpongeBob then rambles on about how great this is, and compares it to a sleepover, only they'll be sweaty and covered in grease. SpongeBob then dives back into the kitchen, and Sandals walks up to the register. Squidward then asks him to beat him with a baseball bat. SpongeBob starts enthusiastically declares that he's doing things...at night. SpongeBob then starts to march around the register saying, "Night night night night night night night night night night night night...NIGHT NIGHT NIGHT NIGHT NA NIGHT...NIGHT!!!" Squidward is irritated and asks SpongeBob to take out the garbage. SpongeBob then looks outside, where it is very dark, and says maybe not. Squidward then questions his love of the night-shift, and SpongeBob decides to go. He runs out while chanting: "FOR THE KRUSTY KRAB!!!" he then continues running while screaming like a maniac, throws away the bag, and runs back into the Krusty Krab, now hyper-ventalating. Then he says it was easy. Squidward then asks him if he is afraid, and SpongeBob denies this fact. Squidward then says that he is, and this fills SpongeBob with curiosity.
SpongeBob bounces around asking what happened. Squidward then tells him the story of the Hash-Slinging-Slasher. The Hash-Slinging-Slasher, according to Squidward, is a former fry cook of the Krusty Krab, but one day cut off his hand, and got run over by a bus, and at his funeral he was fired. Squidward then continues the story by saying that every Tuesday night he comes back, to seek revenge.
