In Brief: Mr. Krabs decides to sell jellyfish jelly at the Krusty Krab.

Story: During SpongeBob's lunch break at the Krusty Krab, Fred notices SpongeBob is eating his krabby patty with Jellyfish Jelly. He asks SpongeBob if he could try some. After tasting it he sings about how great the jelly patty was and tells Mr. Krabs that he will be back for lunch everday for the rest of his life.

After he realizes how much money he would make Mr. Krabs decides to sell Jelly Patties at the Krusty Krab. He sends SpongeBob out to catch some jellyfish and keeps sending him back for more. Pretty soon every jellyfish was captured, except one. The only one left was a blue jellyfish that SpongeBob called No Name. He had captured and named everyone in Jellyfish Fields, except him.

Later on No Name decides to follow SpongeBob home. He cuts out the lights and cuts the phone cord. SpongeBob goes in the kitchen and finds a patty laying in the floor with blue jellyfish jelly. No Name quickly captured SpongeBob and stuffs him in a jar. No Name takes SpongeBob out of the house and leads him to a huge factory. SpongeBob looks in the window and sees Mr. Krabs exercising on an exercise bike. SpongeBob's horrified to find that Mr. Krabs is torturing all the jellyfish he caught. Mr. Krabs had machines squeezing, pressing, and grinding all the jelly out of every single jellyfish. SpongeBob and No Name rush in to help and confront Mr. Krabs, whose too busy working out. They pry open the trap door containing all the jellyfish and let them all go free.

Mr. Krabs tries to get away, but realizes he's on a stationary exercise bike. After being sting by No Name Mr. Krabs decides to take the Jelly Patties off his menu. SpongeBob and No Name became pals and SpongeBob renames him Friend..

Song: "Hey All You People" (performed by Fred)

Hey all you people

Hey all you people

Hey all you people, won't you listen to me?

I just had a sandwich

No ordinary sandwich

A sandwich filled with jellyfish jelly

Hey man, you've got to try this sandwich

It's no ordinary sandwich

It's the tastiest sandwich in the sea

(scats) Yeah. . . Thank you.


SpongeBob: I'm going on my lunch break, Mr. Krabs.

Mr. Krabs: You've got 5 minutes.

SpongeBob: Wow. One more minute than yesterday.

Mr. Krabs: SpongeBob, whose playing Squidward's old records again?

SpongeBob: Nobody, Mr. Krabs. I'm just sharing my jellyfish jelly with the customers.

SpongeBob: Wow. Getting paid to jellyfish? That's my life's dream.

Mr. Krabs: Well keep dreaming. This will be on your time.

SpongeBob: It feels like somebody. . .wants to sell me something!

Salesman: I told you he was on to us.

Mr. Krabs: Easy, boy. What are you doing with that thing?

SpongeBob: Something that should have been done a long time ago!. . .the squeaky bolt on this door was driving me crazy.


Where's Squidward? Squidward isn't in this episode, even though it takes place at the Krusty Krab.

Number of Jellyfish The sign in Jellyfish Fields says there are 4 million jellyfish, but SpongeBob didn't catch anywhere near that many.

Blue Jellyfish A blue jellyfish is also shown in The Thing. It is not known whether this jellyfish is Friend though.

SpongeBob catches jellyfish by:

-Using 6 jellyfish nets.

-Catching them in a big rope net.

-Catching them in a fake jellyfish hive.

-Using a SpongeBob robot.

-Dividing into a lot of little SpongeBobs.

Paying Bills Gary pays SpongeBob's electric bill for him.

Getting Jelly Mr. Krabs milks the jellyfish, uses a rolling pin and a grinder, and tickles them to get the jelly out.

Sign Mr. Krabs' sign he was painting said, "Home of the Jelly Patty."
