In Brief: SpongeBob wants to get in a tough club where people fight, but he is accused of being too weak. He must find ways to get in.

Story: One day at Goo Lagoon, Sandy gets in a friendly karate fight with SpongeBob. One of the times she smacks SpongeBob, he flies to a line full of tough men. One man explains that they're in line for the Salty Spittoon, a club where you fight really tough men. Sandy quickly proves to Reg, the man at the door, that she is strong enough to enter the club. SpongeBob isn't able to. The man recommends that he goes to Weenie Hut Jr's, a geeky diner.

SpongeBob sits at Weenie Hut Jr's and sips a drink. A robot accuses him of being a "weenie" for not being tough enough, but disagrees. He walks back to the Salty Spittoon and tries getting in again, but Reg won't let him. One of the nerds at Weenie Hut Jr's tell him he needs a cool hairdo to get in, so he leaves to buy a colorful wig.

Reg still doesn't let SpongeBob in, even with a colorful wig. SpongeBob tries sneaking in as a tattoo on a man's arm, but he is discovered. He also attempts to get in by being part of a fight with two men, but that doesn't help because he just runs from the duel. When doing a dance routine in front of Reg, he breaks his fingers in half, causing him to run back to Weenie Hut Jr's.

At Weenie Hut Jr's, SpongeBob runs into Patrick. To get in the Salty Spitoon, the robot waiter suggests that they fake a fight. SpongeBob and Patrick like the idea, so they leave for the club.

Back at the Salty Spittoon, Patrick pretends to get beaten up by SpongeBob in front of Reg. Reg is impressed that SpongeBob supposedly beat him up without touching him, so he lets him in the club. Instantly, he is rushed to the hospital for slipping on an ice cube when entering. The doctor thinks he is a weakling and refers him to the hospital Weenie Hut General.

Song: (none)


Sandy: SpongeBob's acting jumpier than a rattlesnake in a pickle barrel. Wait...what?

Tough Man: *after SpongeBob smacks into him* Who threw that piece of paper at me?

Reg: Welcome to the Salty Spitoon. How tough are you?

Tough Man: How tough am I? How tough am I? I had a bowl of nails for breakfast this morning.

Reg: Yeah, so?

Tough Man: Without any milk.

Reg: *showing him to Salty Spittoon door* Uh, right this way, sorry to keep you waiting.

SpongeBob: *to a nerd at Weenie Hut Jr's* My friends do not hang out at Weenie Hut Jr's.

Patrick: You tell 'em, SpongeBob.

Nerd: *after the robot helps SpongeBob come up with an idea* Hey, how come you never help us out with our problems?

Robot Waiter: I am a robot, not a miracle worker.

Fight Injury? The man that tells SpongeBob and Sandy about the Salty Spittoon has four stitches on his head.

No Legs In one of the shots of SpongeBob struggling to open the ketchup bottle, he appears to have no pants leg cuffs or legs below his pants.

Reg's Tattoo After it's flipped upside-down, Reg's "Mom" tattoo says "Wow" even when it is right-side-up. Also, the text on the tattoo later turns to a scribble.

Gone and Back The "Weenie Hut Jr's" sign hanging behind SpongeBob at the diner disappears and reappears throughout this episode.

Color Error After the robot waiter shines the beam over SpongeBob to see if he's a weenie, part of SpongeBob's shirt turns yellow for a few seconds.

Decorations When SpongeBob and Patrick run out the Weenie Hut Jr's door, upside down ice cream cone decorations can be seen hanging from the ceiling for two seconds. The cone on the far right is chocolate, the cone in the middle is vanilla, and the one on the far left is chocolate chip mint.
