Role in the episode

After winning a contest, SpongeBob wins the Conch Signal. He uses it to see if it works. This causes Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy to hear it and come to SpongeBob's house. They warn SpongeBob that it is not a toy and should only be used in emergencies. SpongeBob uses it to call them so that they can open a jar of pickles. Barnacle Boy is angry that SpongeBob has used it in a false alarm. Mermaid Man convinces Barnacle Boy to let SpongeBob use the conch for minor things because superhero emergencies do not come up very often. SpongeBob uses the Conch Signal several more times until the super duo is tired. Barnacle Boy takes the Conch Signal and tries to burn it with his heat vision, but is unable to because of his age. He then puts it in his pants and says that he will destroy it later.

  • The Conch Signal may be a reference to the bat-signal, from Batman
  • It is unknown if Barnacle Boy ever used his heat vision on the Conch Signal.
