In order to rid the Krusty Krab of SpongeBob, its creator, Squidward, attempted to convince Mr. Krabs the advantages of the Patty Gadget over SpongeBob. Mr. Krabs was nearly convinced to fire SpongeBob, but he came out to declare a "patty war." Squidward, as confident as he thinks, started the machine, but it began to operate out of control. Even though it was out of control, SpongeBob managed to produce enough patties and stay ahead of the race long enough to make it explode. The remains of the destroyed machine were later buried beneath the ground, and is constantly mourned over by Squidward.
- This invention shows that Squidward can really invent. However, it is unstable and breaks easily.
- Somehow, Squidward knew how to make Krabby Patties.
