SpongeBob says no because Patrick took his $100 bill from his wallet when it dropped on the ground. He then kicks SpongeBob out of the store.
SpongeBob and Patrick are at the comic book store where SpongeBob is buying Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy trading cards. He tells SpongeBob about a rare holographic animated talking card, and how there is only 5 in existence.
