  • [scene cuts to Plankton, sculpting on top of building]
  • Plankton: Almost finished. [hits the nail one more time, causing the structure to collapse] Just great. [hears whistling sound] What is that...? [looks up] Of course. Well with these past events, I wouldn't expect this to be a total surprise. [control room lands on Plankton]
  • [Mr. Krabs, Squidward, and SpongeBob walk out of door]

  • Plankton: [offscreen] Looks like you got the ticket, too. [camera cuts to reveal Plankton carrying a piece of paper toward the edge of the building] Looks like we're both jobless, Krabs. [throws paper over edge, also causing self to fall; caught by antennae by Krabs]
  • Mr. Krabs: Hmm...then I guess we're going to have to...[begins mumbling]...have to...[mumbles again]

  • SpongeBob: [offscreen; grunting] I think...that should do it. [camera cuts to reveal SpongeBob hanging a new sign on the building] Well, what do you think?
  • Plankton: [looks at sign from atop building] The Krusty Chum? Yep, still don't see it working out.
  • Mr. Krabs: Same here.
  • [scene cuts to Plankton, standing on Mr. Krabs's eye while both himself and Mr. Krabs are in uniform; both standing behind the counter]

  • Plankton: We don't serve Chum Patties.
  • Customer: Then why is it on the menu?
  • Plankton: What menu? There are no menus.
  • Customer: [holds up paper] Then what do you call this?
  • Plankton: That's the fire escape plan, numbskull. Now are you going to order something?
  • Customer: A side of Krabby Patties, [scoffs and rolls eyes] hold the attitude.
  • Plankton: Coming right up, sir. [steps on register key, opening register] Wait a minute! Did you just say...? [looks at where the fish was standing, yet is not there]
  • Mr. Krabs: You drove him away, Plankton. [points at Plankton] Keep this up and there will be no Krusty Krab. Got it?!
  • Plankton: That's The Krusty Chum to you, crab cakes. [holds up order tickets] Now we got orders, so get to it so you don't get fired.
  • Mr. Krabs: [holds up fist] Why you little...
  • SpongeBob: [grabs arms] Whoa now. Let's not do this in front of the customers. Besides, we've got orders to fill.
  • Customer: [pause] Yeah!
  • Mr. Krabs: [sighs and walks to fryers] I hate the restaurant business. [begins stirring fries, only to be frightened by alarm] Ah! The ship's being overthrown! Man your stations! [hops behind grill and grabs SpongeBob] Hold me, boy.
  • SpongeBob: [pries Mr. Krabs off of him] Mr. Krabs, no one's overthrowing the ship. This is a restaurant. [points to fryer] That's just the alarm that lets you know that the fries are ready.
  • Mr. Krabs: Oh. [stirs fries and begins to pour ketchup on them]
  • Plankton: [walks over to Krabs] What in coral caverns are you doing, Krabsy?!
  • Mr. Krabs: I am sautéing the fries. Duh! [throws ketchup bottle at Plankton] Now if you excuse me, I would like to get to my job.
  • Plankton: [throws away ketchup bottle; yells] Oh, you think this is really a restaurant?! Then what do you call this?! [pulls lever]
  • [scene cuts to outside of building, where it begins to launch into the air]
  • Plankton: Would you really think I would share a restaurant with you without getting something out of it?! [takes out ticket] Take a closer look at it, Krabsy!
  • Mr. Krabs: [looks at ticket closer; reading fine print] "This ticket is only valid for zero seconds and is copyright of [yells] Fooling Krabs Industries?!". Why I oughta...!
  • [Plankton is seen jumping out of building with parachute]
  • Mr. Krabs: [points to SpongeBob] This is all your fault, boy!
  • SpongeBob: Mine?!
  • Mr. Krabs: If you hadn't suggested we work together, this wouldn't have all happened!
  • SpongeBob: But, I'm not the one that...
  • Mr. Krabs: And now you've put the customers in a frenzy!
  • Customer 2: [looks at watch] Oh, is it time to panic already?! [customers begin running around building in a panic]
  • Mr. Krabs: [grabs SpongeBob] Since this is all your fault, boy-o, you have to fix this. Or else we're all going to end up on the chef's menu at the nearest market.
  • SpongeBob: [begins thinking] I got it! Mr. Krabs, give me the biggest bucket of paint you have!
  • Mr. Krabs: I don't see where you're going with this, SpongeBob, but...[reaches into pocket] I always keep some spare paint in my pocket.
  • SpongeBob: [takes paint] Why do you...? Okay, this will do. [throws paint onto patties on the trays of the table] Order up, everybody!
  • Customer 3: Hey guys, look! Paint patties, I think!
  • [Customers begin eating paint patties, causing them to become ravid]
  • SpongeBob: It's working. [points to exit] We might want to make a quick exit.
  • Mr. Krabs: How long has that been there?
  • SpongeBob: How long do you think? How do you think Plankton exited?
  • Mr. Krabs: Oh, yeah. Good point.
  • [SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs leap out of building, watching as the customers destroy the building]
  • SpongeBob: We did it! [claps hands with Mr. Krabs; lands on Krusty Krab with Mr. Krabs]
  • Mr. Krabs: Now let's just keep those ravid fish away from me restaurant. [looks up and sees building pieces falling toward Krusty Krab] Well, at least it's not the customers.
  • [pieces fall and destroy the Krusty Krab]
  • SpongeBob: [rises from debris] Well, at least not everything [holds up celebratory Krabby Patty] is destroyed.
  • Mr. Krabs: [angrily] Yeah. Just the perfect way to celebrate the 50th anniversary.
  • [episode ends]
