 At the Chum Bucket
Karen: If I had eyes, I'd be rolling them right now.
Plankton: Thanks for the help (drops the napkins) You know, details like this can be very important to the customers.
Karen: Customers? What customers?
Plankton: Well, uh... (sees on his monitor a clip of two fish getting out of their boat, and walking towards the Chum Bucket). Like those customers who just pulled up! (he goes outside, as a giant towel is over Karen). Hello, gentlemen, and welcome to the Chum Bucket! Would you like seating inside or outside?
Fish #2: Seating for what?
Plankton: (holds up the menu and yells)... for the Chum Bucket! Are you gonna enjoy a nice helping of chum? (holds up some chum, and pretends to eat it). Oh, boy, this is so... good. The chum is.
Fish #1: Wait a minute, eating chum? Do people do that?
Plankton (yelling): Look, are you gonna eat, or not????
Fish #1: Yeah. I'm gonna have two Krabby Patties.
Fish #2: Oh, yeah, two.
Fish #1: We couldn't find parking over there at the Krusty Krab. (he points to a scene left of the Krusty Krab, the parking is completley packed. They both walk over and join the humongus line-up there. Plankton then gets mad, so some water bursts out of his body. He catches it in a cup and drinks it).
Plankton: (smacks his lips, then sighs calmly). Now what was I saying? Oh, right (angrily rips up the menu and stamps on it). I'm tired of the Krusty Krab taking all of my buisness! We're doomed, Karen! Doomed, I tell you! (cries)
Karen: Well then, why don't you do what all good buisness owners do?
Plankton (still crying): What would that be?
Karen: Advertise your product, of course. (she gives Plankton part of the towel).
Plankton (stops crying): Advertising? I can't believe it took me this long to come up with this (Karen groans. Bubbles float indicating the next scene. He is looking through a "Box O'Letters"). Let's see. Q, no, P, no... ah, here it is, L! (He puts it on a sign between an E and an exclamation mark). There, it's perfect! "Chum is Metabolic Fuel." You really did it this time, oh, Planky. Oh, yeah, who's the genius? (starts dancing stupidly and sings): Have you seen this... seen my genius...? (he sees Patrick holding a cup and trying to read it).
Patrick: Chum... is... (takes a sip) met...
Plankton: Hello, sir, and welcome to the Chum Bucket. Uh... sir?
Patrick: M-metabol... ol...IC! (it cuts to a scene in Patrick's brain is on fire. It reads "Department of Thought." Patrick clones are inside).
Patrick Clone #1: Forget about what that word means! There's a fire breaking out in the language lobes!
Patrick Clone #2: We need to get out of here! (Patrick clone #3 is pushing on a door that says "pull to open."
Patrick Clone #3: The door is jammed!
Patrick Clone #2: Push harder! (smoke comes and drowns them all as they cough. It cuts back to the Chum Bucket scene).
