Characters

Synopsis

The episode starts off with Plankton pampering Karen and giving her a mud bath. As Plankton and Karen are about to kiss, Karen's screen turns off and is replaced with a call from Plankton's grandmother. It turns out that Plankton promised to own the Krusty Krab by her 90th birthday, and her birthday is tomorrow and she is coming to visit the Krusty Krab. Because of this, Plankton has to lie and keep the lie going when she visits. Plankton explains to SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs the situation, and after explaining it in a sincere way, SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs agree to give the Krusty Krab a Plankton-themed makeover.

The next day, Plankton's grandma visits the now-Plankton-themed Krusty Krab to take a look.
