  • Not my favorite, but I enjoyed the episode and plot


    SpongeBob comes up with a solution when Patrick can't afford a vacation. This episode wasexcellent. I made my score a little low because it isn't my favorite episode. This episode has a bit more humor than Walking the Plankton. The scenes that were hilarious are The very beginning when Patrick try to play his slideboard, the travel agent part, SpongeBob cleaning Patrick's place, Patrick noticing the smell at Squidward's house, Patrick eating the food and thinking that Squidward's house is a resort, SpongeBob massaging Squidward's back, and SpongeBob sleeping at Mr. Krabs' house. Overall, I laughed a bit more than Walking the Plankton, but the episode is almost perfect cause it not my favorite though. 9.5/10

  • A bit better than "Walking the Plankton"


    SpongeBob comes up with a solution when Patrick can't afford a vacation. I thought that this was an excellent episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". I loved this episode because the storyline is something that we've never seen in a television show before and the humor was awesome. The storyline is the first sentence of my review so I don't need to repeat it. I did laugh at so many parts in this episode and I also thought it was a bit better than "Walking the Plankton". I mean, "Walking the Plankton" was fantastic but this episode honestly beats by a little. Patrick trying to put up his slideshow for SpongeBob in the beginning of the episode was very funny. It was also very funny when that travel guy "Okay, let's just check your budget" and then kicks SpongeBob and Patrick out because Patrick doesn't any money to go on a vacation. SpongeBob doing everything for Patrick in order for him to enjoy his STAYCATION was very funny. SpongeBob rearranging the room for Patrick was hilarious. The CPR (Candy Peppermint Recipitation) joke made me LOL. I also laughed hard when SpongeBob was massaging Squidward for 5 hours. The very ending of the episode when SpongeBob sleeps in Mr. Krabs' room because Patrick was sleeping on SpongeBob's bed is funny as well. Speaking of Mr. Krabs, his cameo appearances in this episode were very funny. Anyone should enjoy this episode, the storyline is great and something new plus the humor is non-stop awesome. Overall, an excellent Roadtrip episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". 10/10

  • Both fun episodes though i liked patrick's staycation a bit more


    Walking the Plankton: kind of a predictable episode but still great. in this episode Mr Krabs reads a letter about a cruise and takes his formula with him but Plankton joins him to steal it. funny things!

    Walking the Plankton:

    The episode starts with Plankton and Spongebob's friends at Spongebob's house, where Plankton stands in front of a film projector, calling himself "The Great Genie of the Slide Carousel". He says he will make them watch his slideshow, but in the process, one of the slides presses against him and the light, burning him and destroying the projector. Spongebob saves the show when he inserts the light in himself and holds the slides up. Then the show begins.

    At the Krusty Krab, the mailman arrives with a letter, and Spongebob runs out to greet him. The mailman grumbles, "Boy, if I weren't already on parole" and walks off. Spongebob takes the letter to Mr. Krabs and opens it. Inside are free tickets for a cruise for Mr. Krabs and one guest. Mr. Krabs tells Spongebob he can come along if he agrees to be his manservant, and Spongebob accepts. The tickets were part of Plankton's plot to once again steal the Krabby Patty formula, and he is seen watching Mr. Krabs and Spongebob preparing for the vacation from his telescope. However, when Mr. Krabs says he'll take the recipe with him as a precaution against "a certain one-eyed creepy crawly", Plankton uses Plan B: go on the cruise with them. He tells Karen they're going on a cruise, and she's initially excited until she's struck with the realization that this is part of his plan to steal the Krabby Patty formula. He lies to her and tells her it's their second honeymoon (to which Karen angrily replies they've never even had a first one). Plankton sets the dial on her vacation knob up, making her giddy. Plankton prepares his suitcase, but Karen, in her excitement, uses a laser to slice it half. Plankton sets the vacation dial lower.

    While on the cruise, Karen enjoys herself as she and Plankton lie on loungechairs. As he puts sunscreen on her monitor (to prevent "screenburn"), Plankton catches sight of Mr. Krabs and Spongebob. He mutters his plans, but Karen asks, "Who are you denouncing now?". Plankton lies and says the server is late with the hors d'oeuvres. When the server arrives, Plankton takes one of the crackers and gets kelp cheese on his head. Karen, still in a giddy mood, laughs and tells him that snack is as large as he is. This gives Plankton an idea. Knowing he'll be in trouble if he tries to steal the Krabby Patty in front of Karen, he sculpts the cheese into his likeness and sneaks off. When he's crushed by the wheel, he returns to his lougechair, where Karen wakes up from sleep mode. When he sees them again, he massages her wheels, causing her to fall asleep again. Then he follows Mr. Krabs and Spongebob into the steam room, hiding in a bucket of water. However, a large and sweaty fish comes along, gets a ladleful of water (and Plankton), and pours it onto his back. Plankton screams as he slides down the fish's back and into his underwear. When Spongebob and Mr. Krabs are playing shuffleboard, Plankton hides under a puck. In the process, he is hurled overboard. When Mr. Krabs is on water skis, Plankton attempts to cut him free, but he falls overboard, into the ship's propellers which cut him in half. Plankton climbs back on board, lifting his severed lower half up after him, and gives up stealing the recipe.

    Mr. Krabs and Spongebob go to the free buffet. Mr. Krabs bites into corn (biting off the cob), then spits it out, into Spongebob's mouth. Disgusted by how the food tastes (saying it tastes like "putrified coral stems dipped in rotten butter sauce"), he starts selling Krabby Patties on deck. The passengers are attracted by the smell and line up. Plankton wears a disguise as he makes his order, and Mr. Krabs thinks he's "suckered" him into paying $100 for a Krabby Patty. However, when he sees Plankton's money is covered with chum, he asks him where he got it. Plankton triumphantly replies, "The same place where this is going...to the Chum Bucket laboratory!". Plankton removes his disguise and flies off with the patty. Though he stays ahead of the pursuing Spongebob and Mr. Krabs, he's stopped when he slams into Karen's monitor. She is furious with Plankton not only because he was after the Krabby Patty all along, but because he ruined their honeymoon. She sets her vacation dial to maximum, despite Plankton's protests, and her lasers destroy the ship by cutting it in half. The passengers (and the captain, who grumbles, "If I weren't on parole!") row away in lifeboats. Mr. Krabs laments the loss of his customers. Then Plankton and Karen are seen rowing away in a lifeboat, with Plankton playing the role of gondolier, to his wife's amusement.

    fantastic great episode, really epic for plakton. everyone was great karen did great mr.krabs was funny XD and everyone rocked
