For Here or to Go is an episode from Season 8.
Mr. Krabs tells the customers that for one day he will be hosting a contest. Mr. Krabs sets up a bottle filled with thousands of bun seeds, promising a free Krabby Patty if they guess exactly the number of the seeds inside the bottle. The customers make stupid obviously wrong answers such as 3, 10, blue, Mermaid Man, 42 etc. The last one, Plankton enters the contest hoping to win the Krabby Patty to examine the recipe's ingredients, but is dismissed by Mr. Krabs. Plankton out of vengeance summons the Bogus Business Bureau complaining that Mr. Krabs isn't letting him guess the amount of seeds in the jar. The Bureau's CEO, Agent Twerp comes to the restaurant ordering Mr. Krabs to let Plankton guess or face the Krusty Krab being shut down. When Plankton looks at the seeds, he guesses 500,301. Mr. Krabs claims he is incorrect and that there are 500,000 seeds; but Agent Twerp orders the seeds counted to see if Plankton is correct or incorrect. After counting 500,000 seeds Mr. Krabs boasts that Plankton loses but SpongeBob points out an uncounted seed; thus winning Plankton the contest.
Nervous to stall, Mr. Krabs secretly makes some changes to the contest such as hosting a puppet show, and claiming they ran out of buns but thanks to SpongeBob's dimwittedness in correcting the lies, Mr. Krabs is check-mated to the grisly fate in seeing Plankton get the patty. When Plankton asks for his patty to go with him to the Chum Bucket, Mr. Krabs orders Plankton to eat and swallow it in the restaurant. Agent Twerp agrees to these rules and after Plankton swallows, he is tossed out by Mr. Krabs.
When Plankton reaches the Chum Bucket he orders Karen to take the patty out of his stomach right away even going forth as to declining an operation.
The next morning, as Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob and Squidward sadly watch a long line at the Chum Bucket which has a sign reading "Now Selling Krabby Patties", they suddenly find the Chum Bucket's success coming to an abrupt end with customers complaining that Plankton's patties taste like stomach acid and digestive liquids; all of them running off screaming in disgust. With Plankton yet again still in disgrace, Mr. Krabs orders SpongeBob to put the seeds back on the buns and get back to work.
- When Mr. Krabs puts the pen cap in his mouth, it is black. But in the next shot, it is blue.
- This episode is the first episode between two episodes ending with an exclamation point.
- The seed jar contest is based off of a frequently popular contest called the Jellybean Contest. Jellybeans are put in a jar but instead of having to guess exactly the right number, in real life, you must guess the closest number to the actual number of beans in the jar (guessing the actual number of a jellybean jar is really impossible).
