Episode Recap

Fear of a Krabby Patty: When Mr. Krabs is changing the Krusty Krab "open" times, he notices that Plankton is having his restaurant open 23 hours. Mr. Krabs wants to be better than Plankton, so he opens the Krusty Krab for 24 hours. Squidward is, of course, not happy with this, but SpongeBob is happy to be working non-stop. In the Chum Bucket, Plankton reveals that it's all part of his plan to get Mr. Krabs to open his resturant for 24 hours and getting SpongeBob to crack from exhaustion and tell Plankton the secret formula. Later, in the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob is enjoying his work making Krabby Patties, but kind of likes it too much. Plankton notices that SpongeBob is not getting tired, so he decides to call the Krusty Krab placing an order of over 10,000 Krabby Patties by the name "Peter Lankton". When SpongeBob receives the order he is happy at first. Then, over 30 days pass and Mr. Krabs, Squidward, and SpongeBob are starting to look ugly from non-stop work. SpongeBob doesn't have any energy to make Krabby Patties and starts seeing everyone as giant Krabby Patties. SpongeBob is now starting to think all Krabby Patties are killer Krabby Patties. Then, SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs receive a flyer for "Dr. Peter Lankton (Plankton). Krabby Patty Physiatrist". SpongeBob thinks he needs to go there to get killer Krabby Patties off his mind. He enters the place (which is actually the Chum Bucket in disguise) and meets Plankton there who is disguised as a phyciatrist. SpongeBob lays on the bed and tells Plankton about what his problem is. Plankton tells him that they are going to do some excersises. First, Plankton says something and SpongeBob is supposed to say what first word that comes in his mind. SpongeBob says the same words Plankton says, Plankton tells him that he has to say something different than what he says. Plankton says "Potato" SpongeBob says "Po-to-to" "Tomato" "To-mo-to". They move on to the next excersise. Plankton tells SpongeBob to close his eyes and think of Krabby Patties. Plankton asks him "What are they made out of?" SpongeBob answers, "Hatred". He freaks out and crushes Planktons with a piano". Next excersise: SpongeBob must put a bunch a cards (that have common kitchen ingredients on them) together in any order he chooses. For example: a secret formula. SpongeBob arranges the cards into the shape of a piano, which crushes Plankton. Later, Plankton decides to use hypnosis. The trick is to make SpongeBob fall to sleep and when Plankton snaps his fingers, he wakes up and tells him the formula. SpongeBob falls to sleep, but when Plankton snaps his fingers, he doesn't wake up. In SpongeBob's dream, he is jellyfishing when a giant Krabby Patty eats him. Then, he's in bed when a giant Krabby Patty enters the room. The Krabby Patty gives SpongeBob a cookie pizza and chocolate milk. He turns out to be friendly. SpongeBob wakes up and says he's cured, meaning Plankton's plan is failed. At the end, Mr. Krabs decides to open the Krusty Krab for 23 hours.
