"Larry the Floor Manager" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season eleven. In this episode, Mr. Krabs takes a vacation and makes Larry the Lobster the temporary manager of the Krusty Krab.
The episode begins with all of the customers in line, complaining as Bubble Bass makes an extremely long order. They eventually start to leave, and Mr. Krabs tells Bubble Bass to eat a normal Krabby Patty and shoves one down his throat. SpongeBob then reminds Mr. Krabs of a rule in the Krusty Krab Manual: "The customer is always right! When they have money." Mr. Krabs then thanks SpongeBob for reminding him.
Next, SpongeBob accidentally spills a drop of ketchup, this makes Mr. Krabs furious. He yells at SpongeBob, calling him a "Ketchup waster," which makes SpongeBob upset. Mr. Krabs apologizes and promises that he will not make any other outbursts. Squidward then drops Bubble Bass' napkin and makes Mr. Krabs even more furious. Mr. Krabs screams again, calling Squidward a "waster" and tries to beat him up. He chases Squidward with the register boat until he eventually crashes into Larry. Larry decides to calm Krabs down with a hug.
Mr. Krabs explains to Larry that he was angry because the Krusty Krab has been so busy lately. Larry then suggests that Mr. Krabs should take a vacation. SpongeBob says that he can leave himself and Squidward in charge while he's gone. Mr. Krabs thinks about it, while the scene cuts to a flashback where SpongeBob and Squidward are in charge and the Krusty Krab is all burned down. Mr. Krabs rushes over and tells them that he needs a strong man to take care of the Krusty Krab. SpongeBob points to Larry and Mr. Krabs leaves him in charge.
SpongeBob is cooking Krabby Patties. Larry come in wonders why the customers eat like slobs. Larry thinks about making them exercise because he feels bad for them. Squidward is taking Fred’s order. Larry put’s him on a tredmill. He falls off and Frank comes to take his order. Larry gives a customer Octavius Rex’s order on a very strong plate. He takes it to his table and passes out because he’s so tired of taking his meal to his table. Larry takes away Krabby patties and replaces them with protein power shakes. SpongeBob tries one and spits it out because he doesn’t like it.
Larry changes the name of the Krusty Krab to the Healthy Krab. Larry puts new gym equipment for the customers. Larry tells SpongeBob and Squidward to give the customers their protein power shakes. SpongeBob gives one to Nat Peterson, who is on the rock climbing wall. The protein power shake drops on his head and he falls off the rock climbing wall. Squidward tries two give one to a customer but he needs to jump over the hurtles. Bubble Bass trips on one of them and falls on him. Squidward and SpongeBob want to escape, by climbing the cargo climbing net. Squidward gets tangled and stuck on it.
After Squidward’s escape plan fails, he gives SpongeBob a plan to sabotage Larry's training sessions. SpongeBob does his plan but forgets to untangle Squidward. His plan is to put butter, lard, and mayonnaise in the protein power shakes. He gives them to Larry and his friends. Instead of drinking them, Larry puts it on his chest. That plan fails so Squidward gives him another plan, which is to sabotage the weight machines so they’ll leave. SpongeBob goes to do his plan but once again, he forgets to untangle Sauidward. SpongeBob sabotages the weight machines. Frank over to work out at the weight machine that SpongeBob just destroyed. He trys it and it isn’t then he eventually gets himself tangled. He breaks out and loved it. SpongeBob goes to Squidward and says he gives up. He leaves and yet he forgot to untangle Squidward.
SpongeBob leaves and sees all of the customers waiting outside starving. SpongeBob asks why they aren’t leaving. Harold said they won’t leave because they need Krabby Patties and they don't have any at home. Because of this, SpongeBob declares war. SpongeBob and the customers get their weapons and walk out of the kitchen. They start the war. SpongeBob’s Team is winning by making Larry’s team eat Krabby Patties. They’ve got everybody except Larry. Since he’s to good at dodging, they’ll have to distract him by getting Bubble Bass try to lift weights. Larry gets distracted and a krabby patty gets in his mouth. Larry thinks they’re so delicious that he and his chest start crying because he could’ve been making Krabby Patties instead of trying to make people exercise. SpongeBob says it’s just because he wanted them to get in shape. Larry and his friends take their equipment back to his gym with Squidward still stuck on the cargo climbing net. Mr. Krabs comes home and sees everything is exactly how he left it.
