  • I Love Krabby Patties (performed by SpongeBob & Ms. Gristle Puss in the reprise)


While SpongeBob is making Krabby Patties, he sings a song about how much he loves them, but stops in the middle and, while Squidward is stacking cups (in the form of a triangle), he yells the rest of the song out loud, annoying Miss Gristlepuss and causing Krabby Patties to be banned. And Mr. Krabs causes the Krusty Krab to be closed by threatening Ms. Gristle Puss with a French fry strainer. Meanwhile, Plankton at first thinks Mr. Krabs changed the name to "Closed Krab," but soon figured out he could take advantage of the moment and went out to celebrate. Mr. Krabs's archenemy soon discovered in surprise that the Krusty Krab has secretly been reopened at Spongebob's Pineapple. He threatens Patrick who was asking Plankton for the "password" while finding that his threats make up the password. While Krabs was checking for cops, he goes to check on Spongebob who was afraid of becoming arrested for making an illegal productMr. Krabs forces Spongebob to work otherwise there would be weekends off. Plankton discovers Krabs is doing his regular business "under the table" and calls the cops. In the blink of an eye, they arrive to clean up theKrabby Patties and arrest the employeesMiss Gristlepuss trips and a Krabby Patty dropped into her mouth which made her love the sandwich and forgave the Krusty Crew. Again, Plankton's plans failed and he hides inside one of the Krabby Patties only to be eaten.


  • This is the third time where the episode ends when "The End" is shown. The first two were I Had an Accidentand Wishing You Well. The 4th is Planet of the Jellyfish.
  • She says her name is Miss Gretel Puss, but SpongeBobSquidwardKaren, and Mr. Krabs call her "Miss Gristlepuss"
  • In the credits, Mrs. Gretel Puss is called 'Miss Priss'.
  • Mr Krab says "what doesn't kill you..." This is a reference to the song what doesn't kill you make you stronger.
  • This episode was set to premiere with "The Battle of Bikini Bottom" but aired with "Stanley S. SquarePants" instead.
  • When Mrs. Gretel Puss meets Mr. Krabs, his belt is missing, but the next shot, he was wearing his belt.
  • It is shown that SpongeBob has a fear of breaking the law (in this case, selling banned food).
  • When SpongeBob is under his table, Mr. Krabs says he'll make SpongeBob take weekends off if he doesn't continue cooking Krabby Patties, but in SB-129, he is off on Sunday, which is the weekend. Mr. Krabs must have meant the ENTIRE weekends.
  • This is the first time Mr. Krabs appears in the Krusty Krab without his belt for work.
  • The episode alludes to the Prohibition Era, with the Krabby Patties representing alcohol and the secret Krusty Krab representing a Speakeasy.
  • A banner in SpongeBob's house says "Keep it secret. Keep it safe." This is a reference to a line said in The Lord of the Rings- The Fellowship of the Ring.
  • When Squidward said "Do you want to 'Secret Size' that for $2 more" is a parody of McDonalds and their policy of allowing their customers to 'Super Size' their meal for more money.
  • The lines "...said this ninety times", "you are a nuisance to my community", and "cops I need you" are references to the Shut Up Little Man recordings, A set of recordings of drunken neighbors made in the lower Height of San Francisco in the 80's
  • Mrs. Gretel Puss's husband strongly resembles Duke Nukem.
  • Also, Miss Gretel Puss's husband say "Hello, This is Al G.", Which sounds like algae.
  • This is the 100th episode in the series.
  • Ms. Gretel Puss may be based off Ms. Hubbard from the adult cartoon "The Oblongs...".
  • Miss Gretel Puss is voiced by SCTV alumna Andrea Martin.
  • The police can't make a food illigal, as the police only enforce the law. It is the government that makes the laws. And even then it would take some time to get it passed (if it is even passed). While here, it only took one day to pass.
  • Mr. Krabs calls the cash register "Betsy" in this episode, but in SpongeBob SquarePants vs. The Big One he calls it "Cashy"
  • If one were selling an illegal product in secret, it would be a dead-give away with a banner at the location in plan view.
  • Even though she calls herself Miss Gretel Puss, she should be called Mrs. Gretel Puss, because she's married.
  • In one scene Mr. Krabs calls Squidward "a Squidwart", to which he responds, "Did you just call me Squidwart?" This may be a reference to the Krusty Sponge when SpongeBob says "Like the time Squidward had that mole removed?"
  • When SpongeBob is singing his song about Krabby Patties, the patties on the stove disappear.
  • When the Secret Krusty Krab was found by cops, SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs are handcuffed, but when Mrs.Gretel Puss accidentally falls down and eats a Krabby Patty, SpongeBob's handcuffs disappear.
  • When Mr. Krabs introduces himself, Mrs.Gretel Puss calls him Mr."Grabs."
  • SpongeBob had a watch when Krabs was standing outside the Krusty Krab, saying that Krabs was standing there for four days. It is possible he had a stopwatch or digital watch.
  • The Galley Grub wasn't seen in the Secret Krusty Krab. A probable explanation was that Krab didn't have time to write another one after his original one was still locked in the Krusty Krab.
  • During the scene of Plankton encountering Patrick, the law of gravity was ignored for a while in order to make a joke where Plankton falls with his ladder.
  • Harold was seen outside the pineapple when Plankton hears his "shoving" conversation, but he was found waiting in line inside the Secret Krusty Krab.
  • The Secret Krusty Krab most likely made a rule in which there is a limit of customers present within the building.
  • This is the first time Plankton ruins the Krusty Krab.
  • When Mr. Krabs went to the cash register to Squidward for misbehaving Mrs. Gretel Puss and her crew. He was behind the boat and his body was overlapping the register.
  • Patrick and Squidward weren't seen being arrested when the police arrived at the Secret Krusty Krab. Maybe it's because they weren't making Krabby Patties. And the fact that Squidward was probably also against the Secret Krusty Krab.
  • This episode is rated TV-Y7 and the rest of the episodes before are TV-Y.
  • Goof: When Plankton asked Harold and Nat what was going on, he was wearing a suit. When he went up to Spongebob's door and talked to Patrick, his suit was gone.
  • This is the first episode to show two main antagonists.
