  • Trivia

    • When young Mr. Krabs holds Plankton up while staring in horror at the shut down Stinky Burgers, Mr. Krabs' eyebrows are missing.

    • If Karen had recorded what happened to make the perfect patty batter, couldn't she zoom in to see the ingredients that went in it?

    • In the scene of baby SpongeBob cooking a Krabby Patty, he couldn't make or cook a Krabby Patty because he began working at the Krusty Krab when he was an adult, so neither Mr. Krabs or Jim could tell him the formula.

    • The first time we see Mr. Pirateson he has 2 hooks and the next time he only has one.

    • When the bully hit Plankton with a spit wad, it was stuck to his back. The next part shows Plankton about to pour some liquids into a cup, but the spit wad isn't there anymore. Plankton, holding two test tubes, couldn't have gotten it off that quick.

    • The Elementary School that Mr. Krabs and Plankton attended was called Poseidon Elementary.

    • In this episode, Plankton and Krabs develop the Krabby Patty formula, but in the episode "Enemy-In-Law," it's stated that the formula is an old Krabs family recipe.

    • The original Krabby Patty recipe contained a pinch of chum.

  • Quotes

    • SpongeBob: Yeah, Mr. Krabs. What did happen next?
      Squidward: Yeah. I really wanna know.
      Mr. Krabs: Listen up, Squidward! Because this is where it gets juicy.

    • Patchy: Arrrrhhhhh, you infernal bird, I'll do it meself.

    • Plankton: But that little squabble only got me part of the recipe.

    • Young Plankton: I'm ruling their stomach and soon I'll be ruling their mind! (laughs)
      Young Krabs: What about satisfying the customer?
      Young Plankton: Barnacles to the customer! I'm talking about ruling the world! (laughs) And with this secret recipe, no one will stop me.
      Young Krabs: Oh, no, you don't. (grabs one end of the recipe while Plankton holds onto the other end)
      Young Plankton: Stop! You're going to bust it.
      (the recipe rips in half, Plankton has one half and Eugene has the other half)
      Young Krabs: Burgers aren't for ruling worlds!
      Young Plankton: I'm terribly sorry, Eugene, I couldn't hear you. Could you come closer? Maybe stand on the tile in front of you.
      Young Krabs: Which one? The one that says "Eject" or the one that says "Trap Door"?
      Young Plankton: Oh, either one will do.
      Yong Krabs: (walks onto the one that says "eject") What I was saying was--
      (Plankton pushes a button and is ejected out of the burger stand)
      Young Krabs: You'll regret this one day! (lands in a pile of garbage)

    • Narrator: So remember, kids, always follow your dreams, except if you're Patchy... then stay in bed.

    • (Potty sees the patty Patchy made)
      Potty: It smells like an unswabbed poopdeck!
      Patchy: All right, you featherduster, I'll taste it meself.
      (Patchy takes a bite out of the patty and gags)
      Patchy: For the crime of befouling me tastebuds, I order you to WALK THE PLANK!
      (Patchy forces the patty to jump off a board into the trashcan)

    • (SpongeBob comes up to Mr. Krabs)
      SpongeBob: Here's your recipe, Mr.Krabs (muttering) You have no idea what that went through to get here.
      Mr. Krabs: (while pushing the formula away from him) I've got a pretty good idea.

    • Customer: So if you guys were such great friends, what happened?
      SpongeBob: Yeah, Mr. Krabs, what did happen next?
      Squidward: (sarcastically) Yeah, I really wanna know.

    • Mr. Krabs: There was a time when Plankton and I were... best friends.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Plankton and Mr. Krabs' friendship that turned them into arch-enemies in good and evil is similar to the Transformers' universe story, where Optimus Prime and Megatron used to care for each other as brothers until Megatron betrayed Optimus Prime and they both formed different teams of good and evil.

    • School: Poseidon Elementary
      The overturned boat that they have school in is probably the boat, Poseidon, that sank in the 1972 movie The Poseidon Adventure.

    • School Name: Poseidon Elementary
      The school that Plankton and Mr. Krabs use to go to was named after a Greek God named Poseidon.

    • Mr. Krabs: For me?
      When Mr. Krabs says "For me?" when he got the cake, it is a spoof from Alice in Wonderland.

    • Episode Title: Friend or Foe
      This is also the title of a game show on GSN.

    • Flashbacks
      The way that there were flashbacks in the episode is similar to the way there were numerous flashbacks in The Fairly Odd Parents episode, "Remy Rides Again."
