To Love a Patty is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season five. In this episode, SpongeBob falls in love with a Krabby Patty.

To Love a Patty




It starts out when SpongeBob is cooking Krabby Patties. He makes several krabby patties and falls in love with one, naming it "Patty". The patties are taken to customers who start wolfing down on the food. Consumed by guilt, SpongeBob rescues Patty by replacing her with a shoe.

SpongeBob shows Patty around his home. Patrick and Sandy arrive, only to question SpongeBob's desire of the sandwich. SpongeBob ignores their judgments and goes off to do numerous activities with the sandwich; such as going to the fair, rescuing it from hungry clams, and riding a boat down a river. They go down a waterfall and SpongeBob puts the sandwich back together.

Five months later, the patty has spoiled. Oblivious to this, SpongeBob decides to take it on a date. Later at the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob informs Mr. Krabs about his date. Mr. Krabs thinks he dating a girl, and finds it strange when he discovers the date is a krabby patty. At a point during the date, Squidward tries to tell SpongeBob that his date is just a rotten krabby patty. SpongeBob still thinks Patty is beautiful until he smells her, then sees the hideous appearance of the expired patty.

SpongeBob questions how this came to be. Mr. Krabs tells the fry cook that he once fell in love with a krabby patty. He then tells SpongeBob that krabby patties are meant to be loved and eaten. SpongeBob finally knows what he must do and eats his date, feeling nauseous afterward.


  • Some Sandy fans dislike this episode due to Spongebob falling in love with Patty than Sandy. It is also that Spongebob was killing clams.
  • This is the first time SpongeBob falls in love.
  • In the scene SpongeBob rushes to Patty after falling off the waterfall, a few pieces of coral spell the word "lord" making this the third episode with a subliminal message.
  • Third time hearts appear on a title card.
  • The tough person who wanted to eat Patty but instead got a shoe burger is the same tough fish that the Flying Dutchman sees in Shanghaied where SpongeBob points to scare but instead a little boy. He's also the same person from Krabby Land who helps SpongeBob stall the kids.
  • The Valentine's Day Carnival from episode Valentine's Day returns in To Love a Patty. It was seen during "Oh Baby".
  • This is the 2nd Valentine's Day-based episode.
  • This is the first episode where SpongeBob killed someone.
  • In German they call this episode "Burgina" which means Love A Patty.
  • In Dutch this episode is called "Allerliefste Krabby" which means "Sweetest Krabby"
  • The song SpongeBob sings to his patty sounds a little similar to Go Your Own Way by Fleetwod Mac.
  • The song SpongeBob sings was used for Rock Band 2 DLC.
  • The Patty is similar to the one they tried to feed the health inspector.
  • The Oh baby song is actually called "I can't keep my eyes off you".
  • Spongebob's karate skills in this episode are superb.
  • There was Fish Hooks (a Disney Channel Series) episode, where Milo was in love with a milkshake and wouldn't drink it, just like Spongebob wouldn't eat the patty he loved.
  • Squidward saying "How should I know? Am I an idiot's keeper?" is a reference to the Bible, when Cain answers God's question by saying "Am I my brother's keeper?"
