Pays Mr. Krabs SpongeBob

Patrick doesn't pay (episode)

As Patrick in the season five episodePatrick doesn't pay cannot settle his bill in the Krusty Krab, he has to work off his debts there.


Patrick comes to Krabby Krabbe with acute Krabby Patty withdrawal and orders a Krabby Patty. When he assures Mr. Krabs that he can pay for it, he is served a mountain of Krabby burgers. But after the meal, Patrick lies on the floor, exhausted, and tells Mr. Krabs that he doesn't have any money to pay for the Krabby Patties, whereupon Patrick has to work at the Krabby Patty, otherwise he would never get another Krabby Patty. First he is supposed to work in the bathroom, but then he tries the soap and eats it all up. Mr. Krabs now instructs him to put ice cubes from the freezer into the barrel. But Patrick breaks the freezer and the keg. Mr. Krabs takes Patrick to the trash room. He should throw garbage bags in the garbage grinder. Meanwhile, SpongeBob has to drag a sack of money into the safe. As SpongeBob walks past the garbage room, Patrick sees that SpongeBob also has what he thinks is a garbage bag. He pushes the sack into the milling machine. But when the sack didn't fit through and Patrick kept trying to push it in, the Krusty Krab went down in an explosion. And to make matters worse, Mr. Krabs' full sack of money also flies into the trash shredder and is chopped up, causing Mr. Krabs to get very angry.

Notes and evaluation

The Krusty Krab is a burger joint in Bikini Bottom owned by Mr. Krabs. SpongeBob SquarePants and Squidward Tentacles work there as employees. The Krusty Krab is characterized on the one hand by its uniqueness, but on the other hand it does not stand out for its high quality or great cleanliness. In the series, it often represents a central location.
