==Synopsis==
On a freezing winter day in [[Bikini Bottom]], SpongeBob and Squidward are at work, and Squidward notices Krabs has the thermostat set to 62°. Squidward, feeling cold, decides to raise it to 63°. Mr. Krabs bursts out of his office and complains about spending the money on heating and changes it back to 62° and then Squidward made rude comments. Plankton is spying on the restaurant and decides that night that he was going to change the thermostat and freeze the [[Krusty Krab]]. Mr. Krabs says that it is still on 62°; it was actually -15°. The customers started to leave because of this. When they came back, they were bundled in coats and then Plankton felt shocked. SpongeBob, meanwhile, was serving food on ice skates made from frozen patties. Soon, the customers began to strap patties to their feet and skated across the ice covered floor. Plankton goes in and attempts to steal a patty but gets pummeled by an ice machine. Then, as he tries to escape, some hockey players that were there to practice were blocking the exit. Plankton then remembers the thermostat and unfroze and froze the customers, but Krabs stops him and sets the thermostat at 100 degrees. The Krusty Krab is turned into a popular public pool the following summer. Mr. Krabs then thanks Plankton for his "good ideas."

During the freezing, cold weather in Bikini Bottom, Squidward complains about the temperature in the [[Krusty Krab]]. When Squidward tries to turn up the heat on the thermostat, Mr. Krabs berates him, allowing Plankton to get an idea to freeze his competition out of business. He sneaks into the Kursty Krab late at night and takes toilet paper. He then starts rapidly changing the temperature on the thermostat, wit an elderly fish coming out of the bathroom realizing he was locked in. The next morning, Plankton has frozen the Krusty Krab down to -15 degrees causing Squidward to complain, but Mr. Krabs does not allow him to turn up the thermostat because of the piece of toilet paper Plankton taped on showing exactly the same temperature as before. Squidward notes that there are even icicles on the ceiling and the customers start to leave due to SpongeBob and Squidward slipping everwhere. Plankton sees the customers leaving and rejoices. He then puts up a sign saying that the Chum Bucket is warm and speaks to a fish walking by, who is frightened by Plankton's eye looking through the hug telescope. Plankton is angry when he realizes the customers come back in winter wear. Mr. Krabs has turned the restaurant into an ice rink complete with a train ride for children and SpongeBob invents Patty Skates to help him, Squidward and the customers to get around, which is bought by the customers telling SpongeBob not to cook them. Mr. Krabs is very happy that he is selling Krabby Patties without even needing to cook them and claims that he has made even more money than with the old Krusty Krab. Plankton sees Mr. Krabs with his money and is furious. Karen advises Plankton to swipe a Krabby Patty and he attempts to steal one but SpongeBob and the local hockey players (Who were actually trying to take the puck SpongeBob took by mistake) block the door after Plankton tries to run them over with the train but squashes them between the door. Plankton then goes over to the thermostat and reveals the true temperature, infuriating Mr. Krabs, and begins freezing and boiling the patrons by repeatedly turning the dial in both directions. He then falls off the dial, allowing Mr. Krabs to freeze him. Later, Mr. Krabs turns the Krusty Krab into a swimming pool, relaxing on a floating chair, while he thanks Plankton (trapped in an ice cube) for his ideas, and sips lemonade with Plankton as the ice in the drink, resulting in Plankton screaming.

SynopsisEdit

During the freezing, cold weather in Bikini Bottom, Squidward complains about the temperature in the Krusty Krab. When Squidward tries to turn up the heat on the thermostat, Mr. Krabs berates him, allowing Plankton to get an idea to freeze his competition out of business. He sneaks into the Kursty Krab late at night and takes toilet paper. He then starts rapidly changing the temperature on the thermostat, wit an elderly fish coming out of the bathroom realizing he was locked in. The next morning, Plankton has frozen the Krusty Krab down to -15 degrees causing Squidward to complain, but Mr. Krabs does not allow him to turn up the thermostat because of the piece of toilet paper Plankton taped on showing exactly the same temperature as before. Squidward notes that there are even icicles on the ceiling and the customers start to leave due to SpongeBob and Squidward slipping everwhere. Plankton sees the customers leaving and rejoices. He then puts up a sign saying that the Chum Bucket is warm and speaks to a fish walking by, who is frightened by Plankton's eye looking through the hug telescope. Plankton is angry when he realizes the customers come back in winter wear. Mr. Krabs has turned the restaurant into an ice rink complete with a train ride for children and SpongeBob invents Patty Skates to help him, Squidward and the customers to get around, which is bought by the customers telling SpongeBob not to cook them. Mr. Krabs is very happy that he is selling Krabby Patties without even needing to cook them and claims that he has made even more money than with the old Krusty Krab. Plankton sees Mr. Krabs with his money and is furious. Karen advises Plankton to swipe a Krabby Patty and he attempts to steal one but SpongeBob and the local hockey players (Who were actually trying to take the puck SpongeBob took by mistake) block the door after Plankton tries to run them over with the train but squashes them between the door. Plankton then goes over to the thermostat and reveals the true temperature, infuriating Mr. Krabs, and begins freezing and boiling the patrons by repeatedly turning the dial in both directions. He then falls off the dial, allowing Mr. Krabs to freeze him. Later, Mr. Krabs turns the Krusty Krab into a swimming pool, relaxing on a floating chair, while he thanks Plankton (trapped in an ice cube) for his ideas, and sips lemonade with Plankton as the ice in the drink, resulting in Plankton screaming.
