Episode Summary

Plankton's Regular
Plankton is shocked to learn that he seems to have a regular customer at the Chum Bucket.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Probably mysecondleast favorite episode of August

    Plankton is shocked to learn that he seems to have a regular customer at the Chum Bucket. It was a decent episode. I thought the plot was interesting that Plankton has a regular customer (Nat, who often appears throughout the show). However, I thought the episode was boring in most of the parts. The parts I liked was SpongeBob trying Nat to eat the Krabby Patty AND SpongeBob being Karen. The rest are mainly boring, gross, and not needed. Mr. Krabs was a jerk in this episode because he wanted Nat to eat at the Krusty Krab. Also, the skin ripping scenes are super gross. I hated the ending because Nat was no longer being impressed by Plankton's food. That sucks though. Overall, it was a boring episode of SpongeBob even though it should have been better. I'll give points for the plot of the episode which is why I don't really hated this episode. Krabs ruined the episode however. 6/10moreless
  • stupid

    it's about as entertaining as an ingrown toenail, and apparently the fish liking chum was fake, because he is seen eating a krabby patty
  • plankton actually gets a customer..?

    this episode was actually quite entertaining coz plankton getting a customer..? you would think that if he had a customer mr krabs wouldnt care that much but no he was really selfish that was the only bad part of it.. now the good part. pretty much everything expet the nastyness. i have to say when i first heard about it i thought it was gonna be boring coz it sounds unoriginal but i was wrong it was very entertaining and i recommend you watch this if you havent. it is a good episode to season 6, not as good as the patty caper but not far behind. i hope season six stays like this and carries on bringing these good episodes to the season. final grade b+moreless

    Knowing that he had no customers for a long time, Plankton complains and almost gives up, when a seemingly ordinary customer shows up at the Chum Bucket. He apparently enjoys chum so much that he comes to the Chum Bucket every day. SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs attempt to get him to eat Krabby Patties, but fail every time. They even try to steal Plankton's secret formula. But Plankton catches them. Just then, the seemingly regular customer comes in, and refuses to eat any more chum, revealing that he was just paid to eat chum. Knowing this, Plankton starts complaining and crying again, while Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob watch him.

  • Probably one of the most mean-spirited Plankton episodes ever, along with "One Coarse Meal"

    Can someone please tell me when people suddenly decided it was okay to completely abuse Plankton to the point of a near breakdown? Sure, Plankton is supposed to be the bad guy of the show, but not even he deserves people not only hating, but people telling him right to his face that he's a useless failure.

    Here's the kicker: in this episode, Plankton wasn't even trying to steal the Krabby Patty formula! Sure, he went over to the Krusty Krab to gloat about Nat, but that was it. And how does Mr. Krabs respond? By trying to get Nat to reject the Chum Bucket by any means necessary, on the basis that he "just can't afford it."

    Has Mr. Krabs himself forgotten that his restaurant is the most popular restaurant in Bikini Bottom? Isn't he supposed to be a millionaire? And he's freaking out just because Plankton has ONE customer in comparison to Krabs' hundreds? Of course he can afford it! He just wants to see Plankton miserable.

    But, of course, Plankton's customer really wasn't a willing customer at all. As it turns out, Plankton's wife, Karen, paid Nat to eat at the Chum Bucket to make Plankton stop complaining. And when Plankton becomes devastated at the news, how to Karen and Krabs react? Karen tells Plankton to shut up, and Krabs just laughs! For someone who got so upset when Plankton had his "affair" with Mrs. Krabs (not that I condone that kind of behavior), Karen sure doesn't seem to care much for her husband.

    So, yeah. If you want a good example of a SpongeBob episode that will make you feel sorry for Plankton and make you hate Karen and Mr. Krabs, this is it.moreless
