In Brief: Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob film a beginner's guide to the Krusty Krab.

Story: The narrator introduces you to the Krusty Krab and says it's your first day of training. You will learn how to make the world famous krabby patty. First we must learn about the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs bought a bankrupt retirement home after the war and with a few minor alterations turned it into the famous, Krusty Krab.

The Krusty Krab today has all the latest achievements in fast food technology. Mr. Krabs shows us his spatula, cash register, ice cubes, straws, and ketchup packets. The employees of the Krusty Krab are very important and are like the liver and gull bladder. SpongeBob is poised, confident, and has a smile that says, "Hello, world. May I take your order." Squidward, on the other hand, is inatentive, impacient and has a glazed look in the eyes. He even has a "I Really Wish I Wasn't Here Right Now" button.

Training is very important when it comes to the Krusty Krab. To work at the Krusty Krab you must understand P.O.O.P. That's a well organized code, which stands for People Order Our Patties. Personal Hygiene is also a necessity. Every employee at the Krusty Krab must follow strict hygiene guidelines. Be sure to get under the fingernails. Make sure your feet are polished, your face is cleared of all blemishes and boils and your hair is neat and tidy. As you can see Squidward doesn't properly prepare for his shift.

Your work station must be tidy and free of droppings, and make sure your work station is organized. Don't be like Squidward. Also, make sure to have interfacing with your boss. The customers are the most important aspect of the industry. Every employee must know how to interact with them, even customers like Patrick.

Next, we have to discuss an Emergency Situation. The Krusty Krabs is a treasure and as with every treasure, there's always a thief ready to steal it. Uh oh. It's Plankton! SpongeBob is running around in circles, knocking over tables. Mr. Krabs grabs Plankton and flicks him back over to the Chum Bucket. Now that we've covered all the basic training it's time for the moment you've been waiting for. You will learn how to prepare with your very own hands, the sumptious, lip moistening, spine tingling, heart stopping pleasure center that is the Krabby Patty. Okay, the secret formula is. . .

Song: (none)


Mr. Krabs: Are you gonna buy something or just stand there? Cause there's a stand-in fee.

SpongeBob: Mr. Krabs, can I have a raise?

Mr. Krabs: No!

Narrator: Good job, Mr. SquarePants!

Patrick: Squidward! Your ceiling is talking to me!

Squidward: Are you going to order something or just make friends with the paneling?

Plankton: You'll never catch me, Krabs! Not when I switch to maximum overdrive. *Mr. Krabs grabs Plankton* I knew I should have gotten the turbo.
