Episode Recap

Chocolate With Nuts:
The episode begins with SpongeBob receiving the mail. Patrick then later walks up to SpongeBob and both of them look at the mail. Most of its for Gary thought, but at the end they see a magazine called "Fancy Living Digest." When SpongeBob and Patrick scan through it, they are just amazed by all that they see, and realize that it would be so cool to live like rich and handsomely. However, that piece of mail was actually Squidward's and he takes it of the two. Squidward tells SpongeBob and Patrick that the way the people in the magazine get all that money is from selling stuff. This makes SpongeBob and Patrick think that they could become entrepreneurs. So they decide to sell chocolate bars, to make quick money to become much like those people in the magazine. After making that decision, SpongeBob and Patrick go buy chocolate. They come upon many strange people-such as one who screams, "Chocolate!" and another man whose trying to sell them stuff. He ends up selling SpongeBob and Patrick, Candy Bag Carriers and Candy Bag, Candy Bag holders. Unfortunately, it is all unsuccessful. Later, after many failed attempts-flattering the customer and focusing-the two are just about ready to give up, until they come across a sign for barnacle chips. The sign says that it tastes good, although SpongeBob disagrees. And so they come up with the idea of Stretching the Truth, or telling a little white lie about their product. They do various things like saying it makes you live forever, makes your hair grow, makes you sound smart, keeps your face from getting any uglier, makes you the king of the world, and so on. But the end up buying chocolate when they meet a man who appears injured, but he is really the guy who sold them the carriers, trying to buy their chocolate. This is successful and they sell chocolate to everyone except for the man who screams "chocolate" at them. He is still chasing SpongeBob and Patrick and he catches up to them and buys all of their chocolate. SpongeBob and Patrick are rich and they go to a restaurant called: Fancy!. At the restaurant, Squidward attempts to get a seat at the restaurant but the waiter says "Sorry sir but the entire restaurant has been booked out by two snazzy entrepreneurs and their dates, who actually ends up being SpongeBob and Patrick!

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V:
In Bikini Bottom, there is an endless line for the Krusty Krab. It's actually Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy are holding up the line at the Krusty Krab, because Mermaid Man is still trying to decide what to order. Finally, Mermaid Man orders a Krabby Patty and a Pipsqueak Patty for Barnacle Boy. This makes Barnacle Boy angry and he demands for an adult-sized burger, claiming that since he is very old, he should no longer be treated as a child. Mermaid Man insists that he's still too young for it, while the rest of the ones in the restaurant begins to tease him. That is it for Barnacle Boy! Barnacle Boy is sick of being treated like nothing less than human. So he breaks his friendship with Mermaid Man and joins Man Ray and the Dirty Bubble to form a villainous group known as E.V.I.L., which stands for; Every Villain is Lemons). The Threesome group ends up being to powerful for Mermaid Man. With that, Mermaid Man knows that he cannot defeat this new threat on his own, and he asks. SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward and Sandy to reform the International Justice League of Super Acquaintances. There, it is revealed that E.V.I.L is planning to harass teenagers at make-out reef. Despite numerous advantages, the incompetent Super Acquaintances defeat themselves. SpongeBob was defeated by Squidward and defeats Patrick. Mermaid Man mistakes Squidward for SpongeBob and washes him up(water is the weakness of fire).Sandy defeats herself by not noticing the boat behind her coming to hit her off the cliff. Having "defeated" the heroes, Barnacle Boy demands three things of Mermaid Man: That he be treated as a superhero, and not a sidekick; that he is called "Barnacle Man"; and that he be allowed to eat an adult-sized Krabby Patty. He then immediately rejoins the side of good, though when the heroes return to the Krusty Krab, Barnacle Boy admits that he cannot eat an entire Krabby Patty. Everyone laughs throughout the ending.
