Episode Article: Krabs a la Mode
Narrator: It is a cold and windy day. Bikini Bottom is covered in goosebumps.
Squidward: Oh, it's freezing in here.
SpongeBob: Not if you get up and exercise! Hup, two. Hup, two. Yes, sir, my buns are nice and toasty. (turns around to show two Krabby Patties on his behind)
Squidward: I'm so glad I don't eat here. (SpongeBob and Squidward shiver as a gusty wind blows through again)
Squidward: Oh, how cold does Krabs keep this place, anyway? (looks at the thermostat) 62 degrees? Oh, that cheapskate! I'm gonna set it to a toasty 63. (turns it to 63 but an alarm goes off)
Mr. Krabs: Huh? (busts down his door; roaring in outrage) WHO TOUCHED ME THERMOSTAT!? (everyone, including SpongeBob, points at Squidward)
Squidward: (at SpongeBob) Oh, thanks a... (Mr. Krabs grabs him by the nose)
SpongeBob: You're welcome, Squidward.
Mr. Krabs: Squidward, you're always goin' on about your book club. Read this.
Squidward: (reads sign above thermostat) "Do Not Touch Thermostat. Ever!!" (Mr. Krabs puts the temperature back on 62 degrees)
Mr. Krabs: Heat costs money! There's two ways to get on me bad side, boys. I don't like kids playing in me yard, and nobody but me touches me thermostat.
Squidward: That's totally selfish!
SpongeBob: Yeah, your yard is really fun! There are kids playing on it right now.
Mr. Krabs: What? (kids are playing ball, playing tag, flying kites, and jumping rope in Mr. Krabs' front yard) Hey, you kids get off of my lawn. (Mr. Krabs runs out of the restaurant. Plankton is watching all of this through a straw)
Plankton: That's right, run, Krabs. For I have found your Achilles heel. I'll freeze you out of business, and I'll do it with your precious thermostat! (laughs maniacally until an alarm goes off) What the...? Oh, no. Code red! Abandon ship! Abandon ship! Ah! (an old fish sucks Plankton through the straw and into his belly) No matter. In four to six hours, I will have my revenge. (laughs maniacally. It's now closing time)
Squidward: I'm gonna go recover from hypothermia.
SpongeBob: Hippo what-ia? What does that mean?
Mr. Krabs: It means he's a big fat cry baby.
Old Fish: (flushes the toilet and walks to the doors but can't get out) Locked in again.
Plankton: That crusty old barnacle might keep me from his secret formula, but I'd like to see him serve a Krabby Patty when I'm done with this place. (turns on sink faucet) Into every life, a little rain must fall, Krabs. It's just business. (opens up the freezer) Well, maybe it is personal. (turns down the thermostat) I'm touching your thermostat! I'm touching your thermostat!
(cut to Mr. Krabs' house where he is sleeping)
Mr. Krabs: No, no! Someone... touching... thermostat. (cut to next day with Squidward and SpongeBob walking to work)
Squidward: Oh, I meant to bring a sweater. It's colder than yesterday.
SpongeBob: That's why I wore mittens. (wearing a mitten on each eyelash) Mmm. Toasty.
Squidward: Huh? (Krusty Krab is frozen)
Mr. Krabs: Morning, boys. Lock's a bit sticky this morning. (opens doors to see the whole place frozen) Is it cold in here or is it just me? Well, get to work. (goes into his office)
SpongeBob: Aye aye, Mr. Krabs. (slips and slides all over the place, including into Squidward) Whoa! Whoa! Pardon me. (Squidward slides into Mr. Krabs)
Mr. Krabs: All right, quit clowning around and get to work.
SpongeBob: Yes sir.
Squidward: As soon as you turn the heat up.
Mr. Krabs: The temperature stays at 62 degrees.
Squidward: There's icicles hanging from the ceiling!
Mr. Krabs: I don't care if Santee Claus and Jack Frost are having ice cream cones! Don't... touch... THE THERMOSTAT! (icicles from the ceiling break off and fall)
Plankton: (spying through his telescope) I knew you'd be too stubborn to turn the heat up. Let's see how long you keep those customers when you give them the cold shoulder. (customers are waiting for food but Squidward can't move with a tray of burgers in his hand or he will fall)
Old Fish: What's taking so long?
Mr. Krabs: Quit your lollygaggin' and get a move on. (slips and falls, tossing the patties off the plate)
Squidward: Order up.
Customers: Let's get out of here. Yeah, let's go.
Plankton: Yes, flee that frozen wasteland. Warmth and joy have left your lives. (his giant telescope looks at a fish walking by) Hey, buddy, you wanna eat the Chum Bucket? (fish runs off screaming) Fine! At least Krabs' place is deserted. Hey! The customers are coming back. (customers are walking into the Krusty Krab with warmer clothes on) I don't understand. What's bringing them back? (SpongeBob is skating on frozen patties) What the...?
Mr. Krabs: Just put those patties back when you're done.
SpongeBob: Can do, Mr. Krabs.
Squidward: I'm really glad I don't eat here.
SpongeBob: Order up!
Customer #2: Where's my food? (patty enters his mouth) Mmm. (patties enter everyone else's mouth)
Old Fish: I want my krabby flabby!
SpongeBob: Coming right up, sir. Ow, ow!
Old Fish: Delicious!
Customer #3: Wow, that looks like fun. I'll have two krabby patties? But don't cook them.
Customer #4: I'll have two frozen krabby patties too.
SpongeBob: Yes sir.
Customer #5: I want patty skates.
Customer #6: I need two patties now.
Mr. Krabs: It's beautiful. I'm selling twice as many patties and I don't even have to cook 'em. This is the happiest and most effective day of me whole life.
Plankton: No! How is this possible? I freeze his place solid and he turns it into an ice rink. He's making more money than ever.
Karen: That's because, unlike you, he's a good business man.
Plankton: Well, if it isn't the wind beneath my wings.
Karen: I don't understand why you don't just steal a Krabby Patty in all that confusion.
Plankton: I'll be right back. (chuckles)
Karen: (sighs) I don't know why I encourage him. (inside the Krusty Krab, people are ice skating, playing hockey, and riding in the clamboni)
Mr. Krabs: This is fantastic. The local hockey team is payin' me to practice here.
SpongeBob: Coming through! (skates by Patrick, who has his tongue stuck to a pole) Hi, Patrick.
Patrick: (mumbles) Hi, SpongeBob. (Gary, dressed as a referee, blows his whistle and throws the patty in the air. It hits the ground buts slides towards the door)
Hockey Player: Where'd the puck go? (SpongeBob squints his eyes to see Plankton carrying the patty)
SpongeBob: Holy shrimp! Plankton! (yells)
Plankton: I did it. I've finally got a Krabby Patty. (SpongeBob puts his spatula down to block Plankton)
SpongeBob: Not quite, Plankton. You'll have to get past me, first.
Hockey Player: There's the puck. That little square guy has it.
Teammate: Get him. (SpongeBob tries to scurry but the hockey team tackles him. The other hockey player slapsticks the patty)
SpongeBob: Yikes! Whoa-oh-oh-oh! You're mine now, Plankton! (patty flies into his face) You won't get away with this, Plankton.
Plankton: Hey, SpongeBob, long time no see. What've you been up to? How was your weekend?
SpongeBob: Oh, my weekend was fabulous. Thank you for asking. Patrick and I went jellyfishing but I lost my net. Ha, so, I tried to borrow one from Squidward, but he didn't have one. And then when he yelled at me, he swallowed a bug. (laughs) Swallowed a bug.
Plankton: Fascinating. Well, I gotta go. (takes patty and runs)
Plankton: Better luck next time, SpongeBob.
Hockey Player #2: There's the puck, eh? Get it.
Plankton: Uh-oh. (runs again, this time, going to the other side) Whoa! Whoa! Ah! (Squidward skates by and dances in a yellow leotard. SpongeBob skates by him, he gets angry. The hockey team skates by him and runs him over) Ow.
SpongeBob: Hold it right there, Mister. (two hockey players run into SpongeBob. Plankton tries running away again but gets hit by a hockey stick again. SpongeBob tries to get the patty but is getting hit by the hockey team over and over. Squidward is getting run over by everyone. Plankton gets hit towards the door) Huh?
Plankton: Phew. Yes, I'm gonna make it. (lands in front of the door but when the hockey team and SpongeBob collide with each other, it sends Plankton and the patty into the air then back down)
SpongeBob: Gotcha, Plankton.
Plankton: On the contrary. It is I who has you. (rides the clamboni)
SpongeBob: (gasps) The clamboni! Run for it! (the clamboni runs into him, carrying him along)
Plankton: (laughing maniacally) Run, you fools. Run! (Plankton manages to take along the entire hockey team, SpongeBob, Squidward, and Patrick on the clamboni) It's working. I'm actually going to get a Krabby Patty. (clamobni stops because of a huge pile up at the door)
Crowd: Ah, ah!
Plankton: Come on, get out of the way! You're blocking the exit. (clamboni shuts down) No! No! (cries)
Mr. Krabs: I'll take that. (grabs patty) Brilliant idea to block the exit with your body, SpongeBob.
SpongeBob: Um, thank you, Mr. Krabs.
Mr. Krabs: (jumps off the clamboni) You lose again, Plankton.
Plankton: I'm not giving up yet, Krabs. I've still got my secret weapon. (jumps on the thermostat) The thermostat!
Mr. Krabs: Thermostat?
Plankton: That's right, Krabs. It was I who froze the Krusty Krab. (rips off the paper that says "62º" to "-15 degrees") See?
Mr. Krabs: (gasps) You've gone too far this time, Plankton. You can pound me employees, (punches SpongeBob in the gut) try to destroy me restaurant, but nobody messes with me thermostat. (boxing bell rings as Mr. Krabs hurries over to Plankton but Plankton changes the thermostat to above boiling, making the ice melt. Mr. Krabs drops into the water. Then Plankton turns it back to below freezing, which causes Mr. Krabs to freeze, too)
Plankton: See, Krabs, you can't defeat me. (turns the thermostat to hot and cold, making everyone freeze. Accidentally lets go of the thermostat when it's hot and drops into some water. Mr. Krabs walks up to the thermostat and changes it to freezing to freeze Plankton. Cut to later in the day where the ice rink has turned into a swimming pool for customers)
SpongeBob: Here's your Krabby Patty and lemonade, Mr. Krabs.
Mr. Krabs: Thank you, lad. (sees Plankton in one of the ice cubes) Well, well, if it isn't Plankton. You know, I should thank you. What with the ice rink and now the swimming pool gimmick, I'm making more money than I ever did with the old Krusty Krab. Hey, you got any more good ideas? (takes a sip of his drink. Plankton screams)
