Aired Saturday 10:00 AM Nov 23, 2007 on Nickelodeon



  • Trivia

    • In 'Banned in Bikini Bottom' when Mr. Krabs first meets Miss Gristle Puss his belt is missing, but in the next scene it's back.

    • When Plankton dials the phone, it sounds like it was dialed fast. But Plankton is too small to dial a phone. He should have dialed with his legs, which are not that fast.

    • Scooter appears in "Banned In Bikini Bottom", but he died in "Bubble Buddy."

    • SpongeBob got very angry at Patrick for putting Krabby Patties on his feet, but yet in "Krabs a la Mode," everyone in the Krusty Krab was skating with patties on their feet and SpongeBob didn't get angry then. Also, Patrick skated with Krabby Patties in "Wet Painters," but he did not get mad. Possibly, it's because they weren't used as socks.

    • If one wants to keep the sales of a banned item to the buyers a secret, why did they put a sign up for all to see?

    • This is the first time Gary worked for the Krusty Krab.

    • This is the fifth time Patrick worked at the Krusty Krab:

      1st - "Arrgh!"
      2nd - "Big Pink Loser"
      3rd - "Bummer Vacation"
      4th - "That's No Lady"

    • In "The Battle of Bikini Bottom", the Krusty Krab is seen with customers who are eating Krabby Patties, but SpongeBob isn't at work that day.

    • In this episode, Patrick is shown to be very dirty and to hate being clean. But in the episode 'Rise and Shine', he says, "A clean mouth is a happy mouth" while attempting to brush his teeth.

    • SpongeBob noted that Patrick didn't have a nose, but in "Wet Painters," he pulled a lot of hair from his nose with the paintbrush.

    • We learn Patrick doesn't like getting clean in this episode, but he was seen doing something to make him clean, for example, Patrick was seen washing his hands in "Something Smells."

  • Quotes

    • SpongeBob: You know, it's too bad. The only way to make Krabby Patties again would be if you opened a place that didn't look like a restaurant and did it secretly.
      Mr. Krabs: (running back) That's it! A secret Krusty Krab! And I know just where to open it.

    • SpongeBob: You could use a makeover, though. Ugh, look at those feet.
      Patrick: Why, what's wrong with them? (shows his feet are filthy)

    • SpongeBob: Aghhh!! Eww, brain juice!

    • SpongeBob: Ha! I got your nose!
      Patrick: Hey, give it back!

    • Patrick: You... found a new best friend?

    • Miss Grissle Puss: We are a group of fish against everything fun and delicious, or AGOFAEFAD for short, and I'm going to ban these so called Krabby Patties and shut-down your restaurant forever!

    • Patrick: I`ll get you, and I`ll use this.
      SpongeBob: A Krabby Patty? What you gonna do? Eat it?
      Patrick: No, I'm not going to eat it! (puts it on his feet)
      SpongeBob: No! Not that!
      Patrick: Look, clean patties on my dirty, stinky feet.

    • SpongeBob: You don`t wash your hands?
      Patrick: Never have, never will. SpongeBob: Bleck!
      Patrick: Does that bother you? Huh, SpongeBob?
      (Two flashbacks appear and ends)
      SpongeBob: Frankly, Patrick, that does bother me.

    • (Patrick comes out of the bathroom, and refuses to wash his hands)
      Fish: (about Patrick's hands not washed) That is truly disgusting!
      Patrick: Oh, yeah?!

    • SpongeBob: Now that I`m dirty, I can get cleaner.
      Patrick: And, now that I`m clean, I can spend time getting dirty.
      SpongeBob & Patrick: You`re my best friend!

    • (Plankton comes to the door holding a ladder)
      Patrick: What's the password?
      Plankton: What are you talking about, you big, pink buffoon?!
      Patrick: That's it. Come on in!
      Plankton: Curse you! (falls from the ladder)


    • (Patrick becomes attacked by soap and garbage falls on SpongeBob)
      Patrick: I`m squeaky clean!
      (SpongeBob takes off the garbage)
      SpongeBob: I`m covered with muck and scum!
      Patrick: Man, to get my filth back, I have to waddle in mud forever.
      SpongeBob: It'll take me weeks to get clean, I need twenty baths a day.

    • Miss Gristle Puss: Thanks, honey.
      Chief Executive Police Officer: No problem, babe. By the way, I will be home soon for dinner. I can't wait to have that pasta you made me. Yum.

    • SpongeBob: Booger schmooger, you don't even have a nose.
      (Patrick grows a nose)
      SpongeBob: Ahhh!

    • SpongeBob: Ahhh! Booger! (runs into the Krusty Krab) Quick, Mr. Krabs, Patrick is digging for gold! (runs into the kitchen)

      Squidward: Well, did you find any of Patrick's gold?
      Mr. Krabs: Not any gold I was looking for.

    • Mr. Krabs: She can't close us down.
      (scene changes)
      Mr. Krabs: She closed us down! I'm ruined! (cries) How did it come to this?!
      Squidward: You called Miss Gristle Puss a disgusting, old prune, then you threatened her with a French fry strainer.
      Mr. Krabs: Well, I didn't know that her husband was a chief executive police officer!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The secret Krusty Krab opened at SpongeBob's place is a references to the speakeasies during the 1920s-30s prohibition, which sold bootlegged alchohol illegally.

    • Banned in Bikini Bottom: Plot
      The plot of this episode is similar to an episode of The Simpsons when beer is banned in Springfield and Homer goes around as the Beer Bandit secretly bringing beer for everyone.

    • There is a video game called SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom. However, the video game has nothing to do with this episode.

      This is a line from the first film of The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    • Uniforms
      The uniforms the fish are wearing look like the uniforms the Patriots and Loyalists wore in the Revolutionary War.
