  • Episode Description
  • Mr. Krabs sells The Krusty Krab to a conglomerate that plans to turn it into a big corporate chain. At first the sell out brings the kind of peace and quiet Krabs always wanted. But his early retirement quickly turns into nothing more than one boring day after another, and Krabs finds himself living a life without purpose. So he takes a job as a busboy at the Krusty Krab only to find that it has been transformed into a heartless mockery of his former restaurant. With the help of SpongeBob and Squidward, Krabs stages a fast food coup against the new management.moreless

    • Carl: Uh, Squidward? Can I talk to you for a second? What's our motto here at Krabby O'Mondays? Squidward: Sincere service with a smile. Carl: Well, yes. But with the Krabby O' Mondays spirit. Now, Squidward, you wouldn't want to have to talk to human resources... (a big fish steps out of the door)would ya? So what's our motto again? Squidward: Sincere service (slaps himself and then gets happy) with a smile!

    • Carl: Eugene, you're in violation of your contract. Mr. Krabs: Rules, here's a rule for ya! People can't eat stain glass barstools!

    • Pearl: Get out! That's it, Dad! Get a job, get a hobby, or make some friends, because I can't take this anymore!

    • Mr. Krabs: Krabby O' Mondays? Not a name I would have thought of.

    • Mr. Krabs: Krabby Patties are supposed to be made, one at a time; not on a conveyor belt!

    Trivia (8)

    • This was the final episode C.H. Greenblatt worked on.

    • Why would Mr. Krabs pay full price to buy the Krusty Krab back when one of the financial aid fishes said they might only get a fraction of what they paid? He could have saved millions of dollars.

    • When the man fish says "What did he say? Garbage?", he sounds like a girl.

    • When Mr. Krabs pulls up in the boat with the money in a trailer attached to the boat, the trailer has "U-Pull" written on it, which is a pun on U-Haul.

    • We learn that Mr. Krabs has a bicycle that he got 30 years ago. So Mr. Krabs' age might be in the 30s or 40s.

    Allusions (4)

    • The boss that gives Mr. Krabs the money looks and sounds similar to Donald Trump, complete with a toupee.

    • Song Mr. Krabs' song about money: "Cha Ching, Cha Ching, Cha Ching a-ree" is an imitation of the Oscar-winning Mary Poppins song, "Chim Chim Chir-ee", which was written by the Sherman Brothers.

    • Moving Trailer: Name If you look at the name of the moving trailer filled with suitcases of money, the trailer says U-Pull on it. This is a reference to the famous moving company U-Haul.

    • Restaurant: Krabby O' Mondays. This may be a spoof of the restaurant, Ruby Tuesdays...or on T.G.I.Fridays. Note also the colorful buttons on the uniforms--possibly an oblique reference to Office Space, where each employee was required to wear a certain number of "pieces of flair", and Jennifer Aniston threw a fit over it.
