She wanted Krabby Patties to be banned because they were 'too fun and delicious.' She had her husband close the Krusty Krab and with the help of Plankton, destroyed SpongeBob's home where they were selling Krabby Patties illegally. She then planned to arrest SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs. However, when she sees her husband eating a Krabby Patty, she runs over to stop him. But in doing so, she trips over her untied shoelace and falls in front of her husband. The patty drops into her mouth, and after she eats it, she realized that Krabby Patties are not so bad after all. Soon after, she decides to unban Krabby Patties, pardon the Krusty Crew and never close the Krusty Krab again.
