SpongeBob is able to get Patrick to join, but he had to convince Sandy. He told her that the money they find can be used to scientific advancement. Sandy accepts. Several days later, when they're going to leave, the Krusty Krab transforms into a pirate ship and sails off. Squidward was sleeping in his post woke up, unaware of what Mr. Krabs was doing.

[Mr. Krabs is face planted on the door, Squidward is sleeping at the register, and SpongeBob is still flipping burnt out Krabby Patties.]

Mr. Krabs: [weeping] It's been months since a costumer has ordered a Krabby Patty.

Squidward: [waking up] Well, of course. The food here is so terrible, I'm surprised they were here as long as they were.

Mr. Krabs: Oh, be quiet, Mr. Squidward. [Mr. Krabs walks off to his office, and pulls out something from his drawer.] Well, I said this when I was younger, if owning a restaurant doesn't work out, I can always do my Plan B.

SpongeBob: What's your Plan B, Mr. Krabs?

Mr. Krabs: [Yelling in surprise] SpongeBob, how many times have I told you not to sneak up on me like that?

SpongeBob: One thousand-three hundred-and-sixty-seven times.

Mr. Krabs: Okay.

SpongeBob: So what's your Plan B, Mr. Krabs?

Mr. Krabs: To be a pirate and get as much booty as I can.

SpongeBob: You know, Mrs. Puff...

Mr. Krabs: No, no, no, boy. Treasure!

SpongeBob: Oh, I see. [walking away and waving hand] Well, goodbye Mr. Kra-

Mr. Krabs: [grabbing SpongeBob and pulling him back] Why don't you be one of me crew members?

SpongeBob: Is that dangerous?

Mr. Krabs: Not at all. You just have to do the dirty work for me.

SpongeBob: Hmm, that sounds nice.

Mr. Krabs: Yes, it does. Why don't you go and tell your friends to also become crew members.

SpongeBob: Okay, Mr. Krabs.

[Bubbles cut to SpongeBob heading over to Patrick's house]

SpongeBob: Cool, can I sit with you?

Patrick: Okay

SpongeBob: Sure. [SpongeBob sits down at the table]

SpongeBob: Yes, Mr. Krabs is going to become a pirate is going to look for treasure and he needs a crew.

Sandy: [lowering eyebrows] Aaannd?

SpongeBob: ...and I was thinking, since your so smart, you could-

Sandy: [getting up and yelling] I'm not going to become a pirate!

SpongeBob: Why not, Sandy?

Sandy: First, it's wrong to steal, second, pirates get scurvy and all sorts of disease-

SpongeBob: But, Sandy, this is a real nice opportunity.

Sandy: Aww, that pie cost be 25 bucks.

SpongeBob: Now, that you don't have a home anymore, will you become a pirate?

Sandy: NO SPONGEBOB! What on earth can I gain from being a pirate?

SpongeBob: Well, with the money we find, you can build a new home, and you can make scientific advancements with it.

Squidward: [pushing in between the three] Wha-wha-What is the meaning of this?!

Mr. Krabs: Keep quiet and put your pirate uniform on.

Squidward: What pirate uniform?

SpongeBob: We're pirates, Squidward.

Squidward: I never signed up to this.

Mr. Krabs: Too bad, you were in the Krusty Krab when it turned into a ship, now your a member of the Krusty Krew.

Squidward: No! Get me off. [runs to the side of the boat and sees that their too high up]

Mr. Krabs: There is no escape. Your going to be apart of the Krusty Krew whether you like it or not. Now, off to the south we go!
