Characters

Synopsis

Before the episode starts, the Greek Chorus introduce themselves, telling the audience that they narrate the episode.

When the episodes starts, the Greek Chorus introduces King Neptune and his Trident, the Mother Kraken, and then SpongeBob. While SpongeBob is reading his favorite Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy comic book, he bumps into King Neptune while he is on his golden smartphone, and they both accidentally switch their hand-held objects. SpongeBob has Neptune's trident and Neptune has SpongeBob's spatula.

SpongeBob continues walking to the Krusty Krab late for work reading his comic book until it is eaten. Mr. Krabs and Squidward are worried and in frustration because the customers want Krabby Patties. SpongeBob arrives in the kitchen and wishes the tomatoes and lettuce were chopped, not knowing that his trident can grant wishes.

He is surprised and doesn't remember his spatula looking different and being able to grant wishes. Later, the trident produces dancing Krabby Patties that all customers are satisfied with that they can eat. SpongeBob produces more but instead, the Krabby Patties turn evil and bigger and attack the customers, therefore resulting in everybody to leave the Krusty Krab.

SpongeBob then thinks he can solve any problem. When a baby fish is sucking a pacifier, they drop it and the baby starts crying. SpongeBob hears the baby cry and thinks that it would put the pacifier back into the baby's mouth, it instead turns bigger and eats the baby from the trident's power without SpongeBob noticing.

Later, SpongeBob sees a fish who is upset because his grass wouldn't grow, but SpongeBob uses his trident and points at the grass, and makes his grass grow. SpongeBob continues to walk. The grass eventually turns bigger and they start talking and attempt to mow the fish. SpongeBob then finds Patrick and introduces Patrick to his new powers while Patrick is holding a ice cream cone. The light of the trident was so bright that it makes Patrick's ice cream melt as Patrick is upset, but still continues to eat it. SpongeBob then tries to solve the problem by getting an ice cream truck filled with ice cream but it later disappears. After that, SpongeBob gives Patrick unlimited ice cream using his trident, but instead it turns into a big flood of ice cream that floods the whole Bikini Bottom.

King Neptune, meanwhile doesn't realize he has SpongeBob's spatula. He tries to battle a monster using SpongeBob's spatula thinking it is his trident, but nothing happens. He later reads the spatula, reading "Property of SpongeBob." He goes to SpongeBob as they switch items and Neptune gains possession back of his trident.
