At the Krusty Krab, Old Man Jenkins grabs a bottle of ketchup and heads to a table. Since he is old, he accidentally shoots it at a pole. Sheldon J. Plankton is inside a capsule that is inside the ketchup, and doesn't expect this. He shoots through the pole, through a wall, and hits the ground. Eugene H. Krabs throws him back to the Chum Bucket, and he tries to think of a new plan. He uses a machine to swap lives with Mr. Krabs, so he wakes up in his desk. There is a business card saying 'Mr. Plankton', and there is a photo of him with Mr. Krabs' daughter Pearl. He only cares about the Krabby Patties, and neglects everyone else. SpongeBob SquarePants is promoted to co-cashier, where he lets the restaurant down. Squidward Tentacles is at the grill and makes horrible trash-filled burgers, while Pearl only gets $1 a week for pocket money. Mr. Krabs shoots in, and tries to steal a Krabby Patty (remember that he swapped lives with Plankton). Plankton is so confused that he goes back to his own life.


  • Mr. Krabs(to Plankton): "SO LONG SHRIMP!!"

(A shrimp who's leaving stares at him)

  • Mr. Plankton: I don't understand. Is there a gas leak in here?
  • Mr. Plankton: Oh! It's just not worth it! (Strips off clothes)
Plankton: Good-bye everyone, I'll remember you all in therapy!
  • Mr. Plankton: Uh, um, uh, hey there, uh, Spongebob!... Uh, Spongebob?
Spongebob: Yes sir!
Mr. Plankton: I'm going to need to take one of these patties to my office for, uh, bun inspection.
Spongebob: I'm afraid you can't do that Mr. Plankton!
Mr. Plankton: Why not?
SpongeBob: Because that patty is for the customer, sir!
Mr. Plankton: The customer? I'll boil the customer in hot oil! I'll RIP out his... (Spongebob points to the customer sitting behind him. Mr. Plankton walks up to the customer's hand and starts patting it) I mean... yes! Of course - for the lovely customer!
  • SpongeBob: A customer ordered a medium soda, and I gave him a large! I GAVE HIM A LARGE! I've soiled the good Krusty Krab name! Soiled it... soiled it... soiled it... soiled it...(repeats)
  • Krabs: (has failed to steal formula) I'll get that formula! Even if I have to come back tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, and the next day...(repeats as he walks back to the Chum Bucket)
SpongeBob: Phone call Mr. Plankton. *hands phone to Plankton*
Krabs:...And the next day, and the next day, and the next day...
  • Spongebob: Yeah! But the worst part of it is - (Krabs jumps down behind Mr. Plankton)
Mr. Plankton: Good grief! He's NAKED!


  • When Plankton is talking to Karen about the life swapper device when he is drinking, his soda cup moved across the table without Plankton touching it.
  • Apparently, Pearl's allowance is more than $1.00, as when Plankton gives her a dollar, she exclaims, "You hate me!"
  • It seems that although Plankton has switched lives with Krabs, the restaurant is still called the "Krusty Krab".
  • The quote Plankton says to Karen before he switches lives with Mr. Krabs ("Rolling stones gather no algae") is similar to an old saying, "Rolling stones gather no moss".
  • In the beginning of the episode, Plankton says "Reunited it feels so good" which is in reference to the Peaches and Herb 1979 song "Reunited".
