    • Mr. Krabs: Come back here, you little booger!

    • SpongeBob: So, you wanna join our biker gang?
      Squidward: No, I do not.
      Patrick: How about our biker club?
      Squidward: No.
      SpongeBob: How about our biker organization?
      Squidward: No! I don't wanna join your biker alliance, your outfit, or your fellowship!
      SpongeBob: Hmm... how about our coalition?

    • Mr. Krabs: Alright, from now on, NO DRINKS FROM THE OUTSIDE ARE PERMITTED!!!!!!!
      (all the customers leave while sipping their kelp shakes)

    • Mr. Krabs: I bet that Plankton's behind this. (walks around to the back of the Kelp Shake store and finds Plankton) AH-HA! I knew that you were behind this!!

    • Fish: Why, they're the most ferocious, bloodthirsty biker gang under the sea. They've destroyed entire cities in an afternoon. (laughs maniacally then jumps back into the hole he was digging)
      SpongeBob: Bloodthirsty bikers? And they're headed straight for Bikini Bottom. I've got to warn everybody. I better take the shortcut. (as the next scene of bubbles comes up, so does SpongeBob. Bubble pops in the Krusty Krab) Mr. Krabs!

    • Mr. Krabs: (gasps) No, it's impossible. I must've counted me money a dozen times, and it still comes up short. Profits are down. Oh, I feel sorry for me self. (walks out of office)
      Squidward: Would you like a drink with that order?
      Customer: Oh no, thanks. I got me one of those new kelpshakes before I came in here.
      Squidward: That comes out to two dollars even.
      Customer: Wow, what a steal.

    • Scooter: Yeah, I feel protected now.
      SpongeBob: Patrick, it`s working.

    • Patrick: I`m drinking blood. Do you want some?
      SpongeBob: Oh, no, Patrick. I`m drinking diet blood.

    • SpongeBob: Do I look tough?
      Patrick: I wouldn`t mess with ya.
      SpongeBob: Neither would I.

    • Exterminator #1: It will take years to clean this up.
      Exterminator #2: I sure feel sorry for anyone who drank this.

    • Plankton: Oh, yeah!
      Karen: Oh, no.

    • Karen: I wouldn't do that if I were you. There's another ingredient that-
      Mr. Krabs: Hey, I paid good money for this. Of course I'm gonna drink it.
      (drinks the kelp shake)
      Mr. Krabs: Waa! I don't get what the big deal is. This tastes like a wet gym sock.
      Plankton: Really? Let me try.

    • (SpongeBob runs screaming)
      SpongeBob: They shut down the Kelpshake restaurant! (runs away screaming)

    • Farmer: Don't you know who the wild ones are?
      SpongeBob: No, and I don't know who you are, either.

    • Patrick: Those bikers think they`re so tough, with their leather hats, and leather pants!
      SpongeBob: And their leather socks!
      Patrick: If we dressed like that, then we'd be the big, scary bikers and they'd be... little baby doody-heads.
      SpongeBob: Say that again, Patrick.
      Patrick: Little baby doody-heads?
      SpongeBob: No, no, not that part, the part about dressing up like big, scary bikers.

    • SpongeBob: Patrick! There's a ravenous gang of bikers!
      (Patrick doesn't pay attention)
      SpongeBob: Patrick! Didn't you hear me?
      Patrick: I heard you. But what I didn't hear was a hello.
      SpongeBob: (annoyed) Hello, Patrick.
      Patrick: Hello, SpongeBob. (pauses) AHH! BIKERS! AHH! Run for your life! (runs)

    • Mr. Krabs: Wouldn't you like to spend some money?
      Biker: Wouldn't you like to kiss the seat of my pants? (walks away angrily)
      Mr. Krabs: Wait! No! Come back!

    • SpongeBob: Where is Squidward?
      (camera shifts to Squidward on a motorcycle)
      Squidward: Ride to live and live to ride!!!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The Wild One (1953) is a movie about two motorcycle gangs that take over and terrorize a town.

    • Drinks: Blood and Diet Blood

      This is maybe a parody of the drinks Coca-Cola and Diet Coca-Cola.

    • SpongeBob's Hat

      The hat SpongeBob wears looks like the duck's hat from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.

    • Rebel Rouser
      When SpongeBob and Patrick are dressing up as bikers, you can hear a part of the hit 1958 song "Rebel Rouser" by Duane Eddy.

    • Born to be Wild
      The title itself is the name of a Steppenwolf song of the same name.

    • The helmets that The Wild Ones wear are the same helmets worn by the Germans in World War I.

    • Dr. Seuss
      When SpongeBob, Mr. Krabs, and Plankton grew green hair, they resembled the Grinch from Dr. Seuss's books.

    • The Kelp Shake stores are literally on every street corner, which is clearly a reference to the overabundance of Starbucks locations.

    • Kelp Shakes
      Kelp Shakes are a parody of alcoholic drinks. They taste bitter at first, but then get really addictive.
