At the fry cook museum, SpongeBob and Patrick are amazed by everything. They see a greasy griddle with a golden spatula embedded in the grease. On it is a plaque, which says "Many have tried to pull this spatula out of this ancient grease, but all have failed. Only a fry cook worthy of King Neptune himself can wield the golden spatula". While SpongeBob is posing for a picture with the spatula, an old lady askes him "Do you know where the menu section is?" SongeBob replied "It's over that way." But when he was pointing to where the menu section was, he unexpectedly pulled the spatula out. Shortly afterwards, King Neptune appeared from a cloud of smoke. He asks who pulled out the spatula, and SpongeBob takes credit. [[Image:Atlantis Palace.JPG|thumb|right|Neptune's Palace in Atlantis]] King Neptune refuses to believe this, and asks a hot dog seller, Larry (the big muscular lobster), and Patrick if they took out the spatula from the grease, but they all say SpongeBob did it. When King Neptune asks for proof, Patrick shows him the photograph he took. King Neptune then gave up on asking anyone else if they pulled the spatula from the grease, and asks SpongeBob if he wants to compete with him in a burger-cooking competition. Patrick keeps on saying how good Spongebob is, so he's zapped many times by King Neptune. SpongeBob says yes, if Patrick is returned to normal (He agrees, but accidentally makes his face on his butt). If SpongeBob wins, he will stay at [[Atlantis]] forever and become a god. If he loses, he has to give up fry-cooking forever. In the Poseidome, [[King Neptune]] makes 1000 burgers with his mighty magic, while SpongeBob only makes one very slowly (which included tucking two pickles into bed with a slice of cheese, and telling them a story). However, SpongeBob's tastes delicious while King Neptune's tastes terrible, so SpongeBob wins. But he does not want to leave his friends, so they arrange for King Neptune to be a trainee under SpongeBob at the [[Krusty Krab]]. Then it ended with King Neptune saying Yeah! that is only with love not magic!

Neptune finally accepts his loss and decides to try SpongeBob's patty which is proven delicious. King Neptune hires SpongeBob as his fry cook, apologizes for his disbelief but tells SpongeBob that the only cost for living in Atlantis as a god is that he must leave his friends, possessions and home behind him as he lives in comfort at the palace. SpongeBob however later decides that he does not want to leave and when Neptune's attempts to make SpongeBob into a god like him, fail, SpongeBob offers Neptune a compromise where SpongeBob will teach Neptune how to make his own good Krabby Patties to be his own fry cook but under the condition that SpongeBob will be allowed to remain in Bikini Bottom and only visit Atlantis on occasion.

[edit] Plot

At the fry cook museum, SpongeBob and Patrick are amazed by everything. They see a greasy griddle with a golden spatula embedded in the grease. On it is a plaque, which says "Many have tried to pull this spatula out of this ancient grease, but all have failed. Only a fry cook worthy of King Neptune himself can wield the Golden Spatula". While SpongeBob is posing for a picture with the spatula, an old lady asks him "Do you know where the menu section is?" SpongeBob replied "It's over that way." But when he was pointing to where the menu section was, he unexpectedly pulled the spatula out. Shortly afterwards, King Neptune appeared from a cloud of smoke. He asks who pulled out the spatula, and SpongeBob takes credit.
Neptune's Palace in Atlantis
King Neptune however sees SpongeBob as "unsignificant" and does not want to believe SB is his fry cook. Neptune asks people such as Patrick, a hot dog seller, Larry the Lobster etcetera if they pulled the spatula but they tell the fact that SpongeBob did it.

Neptune laughs all these witnesses off but eventually gets impatient and tries to make up several fake excuses on why SpongeBob should not be a royal fry cook. Eventually when Patrick gets into the argument between SpongeBob and Neptune, the king loses his temper and blasts Patrick with his magic. Neptune finally realizes that SpongeBob is not kidding on pulling the spatula and asks SpongeBob if he wants to take a burger-making competition to prove he is worthy. Patrick however foolishly argues with the king about how great SpongeBob is and in return Neptune repeatedly blasts Patrick until he is a smear of ash and smoke. SpongeBob agrees to the challenge under the condition that Neptune repairs Patrick (Neptune agrees but his magic ends up putting Patrick's face on Patrick's rear side). Neptune then tells Patrick and SpongeBob that if SpongeBob wins he goes to live with Neptune in his faraway kingdom; Atlantis as a royal fry cook and if he loses SpongeBob must resign his career as a fry cook permanently and unconditionally.

At the Atlantis stadium the Poseidome, Mr. Krabs is hired as the director/announcer of the competition and makes Neptune and SB agree that the winner must make 1000 patties before the other. Neptune uses his magic to make burger fixings, his cooking supplies etcetera while SpongeBob makes a Krabby Patty at a normal pace. Eventually Neptune makes 1000 patties by the time SB makes his first one causing Neptune to win. Neptune however is disqualified because when giving the audience his burgers they chew them and instantly find them disgusting; Neptune did not show love onto the patties before giving them which makes them taste awful. Neptune finally accepts his loss and decides to try SpongeBob's patty which is proven delicious. King Neptune hires SpongeBob as his fry cook, apologizes for his disbelief but tells SpongeBob that the only cost for living in Atlantis as a god is that he must leave his friends, possessions and home behind him as he lives in comfort at the palace. SpongeBob however later decides that he does not want to leave and when Neptune's attempts to make SpongeBob into a god like him, fail, SpongeBob offers Neptune a compromise where SpongeBob will teach Neptune how to make his own good Krabby Patties to be his own fry cook but under the condition that SpongeBob will be allowed to remain in Bikini Bottom and only visit Atlantis on occasion.

[edit] Cultural References

  • The Poseidome is taken from Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. Neptune is the Roman god of the sea.
  • The whole spatula in the "ancient grease" is a reference to the Arthurian legend of Excalibur, or the sword in the stone in which whoever pulls the sword from the stone would become the King of England. Also, the fact that it's called "ancient grease" can be seen as a play on Ancient Greece (The Ancient Roman god Neptune and his Greek counterpart, Poseidon, do not seem to be distinguished in this episode.)
