[episode starts at the Chum Bucket, where Plankton is grumbling]
Plankton: What is going on here?! [screams, and rips off some of his skin, then Karen comes out]
Karen: What's wrong now?
Plankton: Same as always, look! Empty again.
Karen: So what are you going to do about it?
Plankton: I don't know anymore. [cries]
Karen:[fake cries] Why don't you just work on a new recipe?
Plankton: What's the point? I haven't had a customer in years! [Nat walks in]
Plankton: Away with you! Can't you see that I'm self-loathing here?
Nat: Sorry, I just wanted a Chum Stick.
Nat: Yes, I'd like one of your Chum Sticks.
Plankton: You're kidding right?
Nat: No, I'm serious, I want a Chum Stick.
Plankton: Uh, okay if you insist. [hands him a Chum Stick, and Nat eats it] Oh no, please don't sue me. [Nat finishes the whole thing and says: Mmm-mmm!] I can't believe someone actually enjoys my Chum. [laughs]
Nat: Now this was so good. I'm going to have to come back, tomorrow. [hands him a dollar] Here you go. See you in the morning.
Plankton:[to Karen] Did you see that? I didn't even have to threaten his life! He loved it!
Karen: How'd you pull that off?
Plankton: Well it's simple, finally someone came in who has good taste. And he's coming back tomorrow! Excuse me Karen, but I've gotta whip up some more. [cuts to Plankton running out of the Kitchen with a Chum Stick] Now, I wait. I wait until he returns. [hops up on a stool, and stares out the window] I wait. I wait. I wait. I wait.
Narrator: 8 Hours Later... [Plankton is asleep, then the clock wakes him up]
Plankton: Huh? Nat? Hello? Huh? What? [sees the clock] Uh, it's closing time. I should have known it was too good to be true.
Plankton: Well hello, Nat.
Nat: I came back like I said yesterday.
Plankton: You certainly did, didn't you?
Nat: I'd like another Chum Stick, please?
Plankton: Well, it's your lucky day, Nat. I happen to have a quite delectable one, right here.
Nat: Oh, boy! [eats it]
Plankton: Is it okay?
Nat:[angry] Okay? [happy] It's perfection! [both laugh, and then do a Hi-5] Hey, how about I have another.
Plankton: You bet 'ya. [gives Nat another one, and he eats it]
Nat: Whoo, boy! I can not believe how good these things are.
Plankton: Oh, well, you know.
Nat: All right, see you tomorrow. [hand him another dollar]
Plankton: What? You're coming back again?
Nat: Oh, you know it! And the day after that, and the next week after that! You've got a regular customer on your hands! [walks out]
Plankton: Oh my, this is amazing! At last, I've got my revenge! [laughs evilly, then cuts to the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs is laughing]
Mr. Krabs: ♪Rolling, rolling rolling. Money keeps on rolling.♪ [playing bowling with money] One more time! [notices Plankton] No way, Plankton! You're not getting me formula this time, or any time! [throws him on the counter, then gets a spoon, and crushes him]
Plankton: Don't bother. There's no need.
Mr. Krabs: What are you talking about?
Plankton: I'm just saying, I no longer need to conquer you, Krabs. I've got my own winning recipe now.
Mr. Krabs:[laughs] You're really funny man! You think you can compete with me? Look Plankton, look at all these loyal customers. Loyal to me, not to you!
Nat: Hey Plankton, can I get another one of your delicious Chum Sticks?
Plankton: But of course loyal customer. [hops out of Mr. Krabs' hands, onto Nat's hand] I'll see you later, loser. Much later! [laughs]
Mr. Krabs: Oh no! How can this be? Boy, front and center!
SpongeBob: Yes, sir!
Mr. Krabs: Plankton's trying to overthrow me business! He's got a customer that actually likes his food! You've gotta get that guy back on our side, with a couple of Krabby Patties.
SpongeBob: Oh, you can count on me sir. [cuts to Nat walking toward the Chum Bucket] Pardon me, you smart fellow? Down here. [SpongeBob is laying on the floor, like a mat] Why settle for Plankton's lumpy Chum, when you can enjoy a steaming Krabby Patty, for free?
Nat:[sniffs it] No thanks. [opens the door, peeling off SpongeBob's skin]
SpongeBob: Barnacles! [cuts to SpongeBob in a chair] There he is. Just in time for breakfast. [SpongeBob walks down the street, then throws a rock on the ground] Oh, I am such a clumsy oath. I sure hope nothing happens to this Krabby Patty as I step carefully over this rock here. [deliberately trips on rock] Oh, no! Too late! No! No! [tries to shove in his mouth, but his mouth dodges every time] Oops. Oops. Oops. Oops. Oops. Oops. Come on, Nat. Just one flaxin gentle bite! I see you're not hungry right now, but I'm telling you, that Krabby Patty will make a great snack later.
Nat: Yeah, do me a favor. [rips off SpongeBob's pants, uses it as a napkin, then gives it back] From now on, keep those Shabby Patties to yourself. [walks away]
SpongeBob: Oh, fishpaste! [cuts to the Chum Bucket]
Plankton: Nat, back all ready? That's the fifth time today. Not that I'm surprised. Karen. babe, get Nat here another plate of that sweet Chum.
Karen: Yes, your deminianteness. [goes in the kitchen]
Plankton: Say, Nat, do you have any friends?
Nat: Nope. [Plankton sings a little, then laughs]
Plankton: Would you hurry up with that Chum, Karen?!
SpongeBob:[imitating Karen] Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, keep your tiny pants on Plankton, bleep bloop. [throws a Krabby Patty] There's your Chum, bleep blap blop.
Nat: Hey, this doesn't look like Chum.
Plankton: And that doesn't look like Karen. [SpongeBob looks like Karen]
SpongeBob: Why don't be ridiculous my husband, bleep blap. Of course it's me.
Plankton: What have you done with Karen, you brute?! [cut to the kitchen, where Karen is taped up]
Nat: How many times do I have to tell you? I don't want to eat your trash! Plankton's chum is my favorite breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I LOVE CHUM! So forget it! I don't want to eat anything else! [SpongeBob returns to normal, and speaks in normal voice]
SpongeBob: So you're saying that you love Chum? And all that you ever eat, is Chum?
Nat: Yeah! That's right!
SpongeBob: Interesting. [walks away, scene then cuts to Nat walking out of a trailer. He notices a whole with a sign that says "Shortcut 2 Chum Bucket"]
Nat: A shortcut to the Chum Bucket? Hmm. That must be for me. [goes through the hole, and it leads to the Krusty Krab]
SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs: Welcome, valued customer.
Nat: This isn't the Chum Bucket.
Mr. Krabs:[laughs] Why go to the Chum Bucket, when the Krusty Krab is adding tasty Chum to our menu?
Nat: That's okay, I only eat Chum Bucket brand Chum.
Mr. Krabs: But we've developed a special recipe for the most discerning Chum lovers. Besides, I locked all the exits until you give it a try. So what do you say? [Nat eats it, then spits it out] You like it?
Mr. Krabs: Yeah?
Nat: It's... [coughs]
Mr. Krabs: Well, what do you think?
Nat: It's the second foulest thing I've ever tasted! [vomits in a sick and angry mood off screen] I'm going back to Plankton's Chum. [crawls away]
Mr. Krabs: What am I going to do? I can't let Plankton have as much as one single customer! [cries] I just can't afford it.
SpongeBob: I guess you'll have to make Chum just like Plankton's.
Mr. Krabs: But to do that, I'd have to know how Plankton makes his Chum. [gets an idea] That's it boyo! [cuts to the Chum Bucket at night time. Mr. Krabs sneaks over and uses a flamethrower to cut his way through the Chum Bucket metal wall, allowing him to get in] Where could it be? [notices the safe] There! Plankton's secret formula. [tries to open it] It's gotta be in here [an alarm goes off, and he gets crushed by a giant spoon]
Plankton:[laughs] What do you think Krabs, baby? This time I caught you trying to steal my secret formula! Ironic, isn't it?
Mr. Krabs: Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing. You see, crabs are not born with an innate inkling of irony.
Plankton: Ouch, double irony! [SpongeBob picks him up]
SpongeBob: Triple irony, Plankton! Though you nabbed Krabs trying to steal your formula, I'm still here to ruin your evil plans! So it's like a dollop of irony on top of an ironic twist. [Plankton groans] I mean just think about that. [presses a button on his remote] You know, in a weird way, it's like we never left the... [SpongeBob gets crushed by a giant spoon]
Plankton: Good thing I sprang for the dual spoon installation.
Karen: Call it a computer's intuition, but I sense your regular approaching, with an unusually large wad of cash.
Mr. Krabs: Look at all that loot!
Plankton: That's right, Krabs! And you're going to have to keep looking when my customer comes in and pays me for my Chum!
Mr. Krabs: D'oh, just put me out of me misery! [Nat walks in]
Plankton: Back for more of my delicious Chum, I see!
Nat: Not this time!
Plankton and Mr. Krabs: Huh?
Nat:[to Karen] Not ever again! The deal's off, computer! I can't eat another bite of that slop, no matter how much you pay me!
Nat: I have eaten ten of those things, and I've all ready had to go to the doctor, twice! [passes out, then two men put him on a medical bed] If you need me, I'll be getting my stomach pumped, again. [they carry him out]
Plankton: What's the deal, Karen?
Karen: The deal, was that I payed Nat to eat your Chum, so you'd quit your constant complaining.
Plankton: All this time, I never had one regular customer?
Plankton: I should have known! Why would anyone ever eat my slop?
Karen: Uhh, there he goes again. Cut it out, Plankton!
Plankton: What? It's just obvious that i'm a complete failure, and wasted of a lower life form! Oh, woe is me! [cries]
SpongeBob: Quickly, now is the time to make a hasty retreat!
Mr. Krabs: What? And miss this? I've never enjoyed me self more! This irony is pretty good stuff. [laughs]
