One day at the Krusty Krab, Squidward noticed that SpongeBob was not filling orders, so when he went to investigate, he discovered that SpongeBob had one Mr. Krabs described as the "1,000 YARD STARE" and they both discovered a Calendar in his hat that had the Date of that day circled and that a Food critic was coming for a visit, so Mr. Krabs, and SpongeBob were both in shock as The critic, Gene Scallop walked into the doors, as he was having his first glimpse of the Restaurant, Squidward rudely asked if he was coming in or out, and drove him away with other rude comments, Mr. Krabs stopped him and served him a Krabby Patty, he took one bite and left the restaurant in a hurry, Mr. Krabs lost hope. SpongeBob, Krabs and Squidward watched as the critic gave his review on the Krusty Krab, only to soil it,he said that the Krusty Krab"smelt like the rear-end of a goat. Baaaaa! Phhhpt! as the customers heard the review they began to leave in displeasure, but Gene said that the Krusty Krab was a big success because of the Krabby patty, and he said that SpongeBob was no square when it came to cooking, ending with a Good review, the customers came back pleased and prepared to eat. The next day SpongeBob came to see that there was a new sign at the Krusty Krab, reading the Krusty Sponge, he also found a long line, and Squidward in a SpongeBob costume as the Krusty Sponge's Mascot. SpongeBob found that his new job was to run a train outside the Krusty Krab, which Mr. Krabs was charging people to ride it, SpongeBob was the driver, after he was out of energy from driving, Nat, and Sally where displeased with the results of their ride, and ordered a riot with SpongeBob, he then ran to find Mr. Krabs had gotten all kinds of new products, customized to be like SpongeBob, he also discovered that the New Spongy patties that were supposed to be a meal (Actually tainted meat) was making people sick, and Krabs was ordered to court by one of the customers which were actually a FBI agent. Mr. Krabs was about to go to prison, when he made a deal with the Judge, whom was a huge SpongeBob fan, he ordered Squidward to drive the Judge around and around on the Train, and he didn't go to prison, while SpongeBob happily worked back in his regular post, the Krusty Krab was back to normal.

  • Spongy Patties are rotten Krabby Patties.
  • The judge's last name is "Whopper", a parody of the hamburger sold by Burger King, which makes sense as Burger King often sets out SpongeBob toys when there's a big SpongeBob event. "Whopper" is also a fishing term for a very large fish, especially one that got away.
  • The music at the train ride is a carnival version of the SpongeBob SquarePants theme song.
  • When Squidward tells the kid that his arms can't move, though he can move it when "Whopper" rides to the fun train (which is found at the near-end of the episode).

  • In the courtroom scene, Gene Scallop says: "We, the jury, find the defendant, Eugene H. Krabs, guilty of all charges." The line that is typed into the closed-captions, however, is: "We, the jury, find the defendant, Eugene A. Krabs, guilty of all charges.

  • The calendar in Spongebob's hat had a lion on it, which is the Zodiac sign Leo, which inticates it was probably July or August 23rd.
  • In Bahasa Malaysia version the prison's word is replaced with river.
  • Some fishes from Krabs vs. Plankton is seen in the court. That might be because the producers might had reused the court backgrounds.
  • One could question how legal it would be for Krabs to bribe the judge with Squidward's services, yet Mr. Krabs is not shown to be in trouble with the law.
  • The combination of spots and yellow skin is a reference to chicken pox and yellow fever which both show symptoms on a person's skin.
  • At court, it's illegal to talk when you're not allowed to.
  • Why wouldn't Mr. Krabs make Squidward drive the Fun Train in the first place instead of have him make the patties and make SpongeBob drive the train? Squidward always burns the patties, but SpongeBob is good at it! And if Squidward did have to make the patties, why didn't he take off the SpongeBob costume first? Maybe it was stuck?
  • When the customers are getting angry because SpongeBob stopped driving the Krusty Sponge Fun Train, you can see a guillotine and noose, which implies they were going to kill him.
  • When it's revealed that Spongebob is petrified because he's worried about an important food critic's visit, Squidward says, "Only a complete moron would worry about what some critic has to say". But in other episodes, Squidward himself worried about what other critics had to say.
