In Brief: Squidward loves Krabby Patties after trying them for the first time but won't admit it to SpongeBob.

Story: Squidward waits on a customer at the Krusty Krab, in his usual bad mood. As the customer goes to his table he looks at all the citizens in there eating their food. Squidward calls it garbage and comments that he hates krabby patties. SpongeBob laughs and thinks that it's just a joke. Squidward says that he's never had a Krabby Patty and never will. SpongeBob tells him that he must have one right now. Squidward refuses.

SpongeBob handcuffs himself to Squidward after repeatedly asking him to eat the patty. Squidward finally accepts. He tells SpongeBob to stay away from his funeral when he dies. Squidward takes a very small bite and swallows. He tells SpongeBob that's the worst thing he's ever eaten and cursed everybody who likes Krabby Patties to a early and well deserved grave. After SpongeBob goes away Squidward digs up the Krabby Patty, which he had buried in the ground and eats it even though it's covered in sand. Squidward wants to have more but doesn't want SpongeBob to know he likes them.

Squidward comes to work and orders a Triple Krabby Supreme on a kelp bun. Squidward watched SpongeBob and drolls while he cooks it. When it's done SpongeBob comes out and asks which customer ordered the patty. When nobody answers SpongeBob eats it himself. A customer walks up to a trash can and throws a half eaten patty away. Squidward tries to eat it out of the trash but ends up eating everything but the patty. When Squidward picks it up SpongeBob comes up and grabs the patty to cremate it.

Squidward has a dream of him getting married to a large Krabby Patty. They have a baby and grow old together. Squidward wakes up, gets out of bed and runs back to the Krusty Krab. He looks through the door and sees the Patty Vault. Squidward goes in and opens the vault to reveal all the patties. Suddenly, SpongeBob walks up behind him. He tells Squidward he always comes to work at 3 am to count the sesame seeds. Squidward stammers and studders to try to explain why he's there with the patty vault open. Squidward closes himself in the vault and begins to gobble down tons of patties. SpongeBob tells Squidward that they will go straight to his thighs. . .then he'll blow up. Squidward does blow up and he's taken away in the ambulance with his head seperate from his body. The paramedic tells Squidward he remembers the first time he had a Krabby Patty.

Song: (none)


Squidward: Try one of those radioactive sludge balls you call food? Next I suppose you’ll want me to go square-dancing with Patrick. *shows Patrick dressed in cowboy outfit*

SpongeBob: Sorry, Patrick. *Patrick sighs and walks away*

Squidward: Here you go, sir. A King Size Ultra Krabby Supreme with the works, double batter fried on a stick.

Customer: Thanks. *walks away*

Squidward: Barnacle head.

Customer: Pardon me?

Squidward: You forgot your mayonnaise.

Squidward: What's gonna happen? Am I gonna blow up?

SpongeBob: No worse. It'll go straight to your thighs. . .then you'll blow up.


Never Eaten a Krabby Patty Squidward says he's never eaten a Krabby Patty. That's a lie because he ate many of them in "Your Shoe's Untied."

Patty Vault This is the only time the Patty Vault is shown.

Squid Patty Squidward's baby he had with the patty in the dream sequence has a patty body with tentacles.
