List of episodes

"Mr. Krabs Takes a Vacation" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season eight. In this episode, Mr. Krabs takes a vacation from work.



In his office, Mr. Krabs says that he will take either Squidward or SpongeBob with him and Pearl on a roadtrip, but then Squidward gets up and leaves, leaving Mr. Krabs to choose SpongeBob for the trip. Pearl obviously isn't happy, throwing a suitcase on to SpongeBob, telling him not to get up until they leave town. After they leave, SpongeBob asks if he can get up and Pearl says "sure". They pass Super Mega Mall World and Pearl thinks that they are going there, but Mr. Krabs promises where they are going is way better. They then pass Planet Rollercoaster and once again, Pearl thinks that they are going there and Mr. Krabs says where they are going is a hundred times better.

They park right in front of the Teenage Boy Museum and right when Pearl walks up to it, it is demolished by a wrecking ball. Mr. Krabs tries to comfort her, saying that they weren't going there anyways.
He then says that they are going to the "Ocean Mint" to see the money making process, but Pearl says that she'd rather search through the rubble of the "Teenage Boy Museum" and proceeds to do so. They go inside and meet the tour guide "Bill" and he is aware of the irony of his job and name. They get to the part where Mr. Krabs sees money being shredded.

He starts crying, which floods the factory. SpongeBob absorbs the water and shoots it out the wall, destroying the autographed photo that Pearl finds. Bill than calls security to escort SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs out, but sees them tied up and gagged by two bank robbers. SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs stop them and are each rewarded with a Special Edition 1 dollar bill with their faces on it. Mr. Krabs then takes the bill from SpongeBob, saying that "he hasn't charged him yet for bringing him on this trip".

Pearl then shows up and says that "she hasn`t charged him for taking her on this terrible trip" and takes the two bills from him. Her friend then shows up and Pearl hands her the two dollars that she owes her for the shoes, saying that she must have maxed out her father's (Mr. Krabs) credit card. With the two bills gone, SpongeBob says "oh no" and Mr. Krabs starts crying, flooding the factory.
