Characters

Synopsis

It is a normal day at the Krusty Krab until Jim, the Original Fry Cook, arrives in his golden limousine. He, Mr. Krabs, and Squidward remember back when the Krusty Krab had "class". Jim makes a Krabby Patty and SpongeBob eats it and loves it. He wants to cook like Jim, and Jim says not to step on the patty, since the customers run over a Krabby Patty made by SpongeBob when headed to greet Jim. He then gives SpongeBob real lessons. But SpongeBob can't meet Jim's standards. So SpongeBob decides to resign and give his job to Jim. Jim tells SpongeBob he quit because Mr. Krabs laughed at him when he asked for a raise. Mr. Krabs reveals that SpongeBob has one thing Jim doesn't have: he's cheap! Jim tells SpongeBob that he could be an even greater frycook, but only if he leaves the Krusty Krab which he calls a dump. SpongeBob says that the restaurant isn't a dump. Mr. Krabs says it is a dump, but it's his dump.

Trivia

Timeline
Unknown
Timecards
  • 298 Frozen Patties Later
  • In the flashback, the Krusty Krab was shown to be magnificently designed with the best in architectural design, but in the flashback where Jim shows why he quit, all the decor is replaced with the Krusty Krab as seen in most other episodes.
  • Running Gag: Jim flushing SpongeBob's patties down the toilet.
  • The UK "Kraze Klub" magazine says that Jim is a sponge.
  • This is the first episode to have food create the title name, the next being Plankton's Regular, the third will be The Other Patty where it is written in chum.
  • On the Drawn to Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition video game, Jim is a character the player can draw, because he has a guideline.
  • In the Battle for Bikini Bottom game, Squidward says "I've always been bald!", but in this episode, he has hair in a flashback.
  • It appears that the Krusty Krab transferred to its modern state over night after Jim quit.
  • In Krusty Krab Training Video, when Mr. Krabs first opens the Krusty Krab, it looks the same as it does today, however in this episode, Mr. Krabs looks younger and the Krusty Krab looks different.
  • Jim says that he has a lake that is "solid gold". However, it would not be considered a lake if it was "solid" instead of "liquid".
  • It is revealed in this episode that Squidward once had flowing blonde hair.

Errors

  • In the crowd, Nat can be seen twice.
  • If you listen closely when Jim's limo arrives and Squidward says "Look!', Squidward's voice is different.
  • At one point, SpongeBob creates a heart on a Krabby Patty with ketchup and it was completely "colored in", but in the next picture it was only an outline of ketchup.
  • In the opening and closing credits, Patton Oswalt's name was misspelled "Patton Oswald".
