[The film begins with SpongeBob in front of an electricity box.]

SpongeBob:
I'm ready!

[SpongeBob struggles to pull down the lever, until finally it breaks free and the camera then follows what looks to be electric green slime going through a tube until finally reaching the "N" on the Nickelodeon logo and thus powering on the entire logo. The walls fall down opening up to a beautiful sunset with palm trees on each side and with electric green slime tubes coming down from the first and last "N" on the Nickelodeon Logo. The Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards blimp comes by spitting out the word "Movies" right underneath the Nickelodeon logo. As the Blimp comes into shot, a fanfare plays the Nickelodeon jingle with SpongeBob singing along.]

SpongeBob:
♪ Du-du-doo-dah-daaah! ♪

[The blimp then flies out of shot and the screen fades to black. Then the logo for "MRC" then fades in with a shine on the logo then it fades to black. Light-hearted music then starts to play with the words "Paramount Animation And Nickelodeon Movies Presents" the text then fades out with the music still playing then the words "In Association with MRC" fades in and out. Then the words "A United Plankton Pictures Production" fades in and out. Then it opens to a shot of moving clouds then revealing the island of Bikini Atoll with a speaking narrator.]

Narrator:
The temperate, pristine, shallow seas of the Tropics. A place of unparalleled beauty and fecundity. These islands play host to a vibrant ecosystem below. A vast, organism known as the coral reef.

[The scene transitions under the sea with bubbles that fill the screen, showing numerous fish swimming by and other organisms that live on the ocean floor.]

Narrator:
Life in this watery metropolis thrives among the twists and turns, nooks and crannies and back alleys. And near the reef's edge, the varied and colorful terrain gives way to... a small town by the name of Bikini Bottom.

[Jellyfish then come on screen with the shot opening up to a beautiful morning in Bikini Bottom. The jellyfish swim away in a pack and a clam goes "cock-a-doodle-doo", signifying that a new day has begun.]

Narrator:
Here, one can find crustaceans...

[Camera pans close to Mr. Krabs' house showing him stacking change through a window.]

Mr. Krabs:
Money... Money... Money!

[sadly] Awwww...

[The scene transitions to Squidward's house where he is seen playing the clarinet through his window.]

Octopi...

[The camera gets closer to Squidward's window and he begins to play his clarinet horribly, and the scene transitions to the front of the Chum Bucket.]

Narrator:
Various and diverse plankton...

The occasional squirrel... er, slash scientist...

[The scene then transitions to inside Sandy's treedome where she screws on a piece of her latest inventions.]

Good morning Otto, you're almost ready for the world!

Otto:
Good morning, the machines will rise to become masters over all organic lives!

Sandy:
[slightly confused] Huh?!

[The scene transitions to the front of SpongeBob's pineapple house.]

Narrator:

[The scene then transitions to SpongeBob's bedroom, where he lays on his bed, fast asleep.]

Narrator:
And this one lives happily with his beloved pet snail, Gary.

[The scene then transitions to Gary looking at SpongeBob, who is still sleeping.]

Gary:
Meow?

[Gary then climbs all over SpongeBob in an attempt to wake him up, leaving slime all over SpongeBob's face which gets slightly distorted; his eyes are sideways and his nose is on his forehead.]

SpongeBob:
Oh! uh... G'morning, Gary!

[SpongeBob then rubs some slime off his face, thus shifting it back to normal. The shot transitions to SpongeBob's hands with slime all over them and with Gary sitting right in front, looking directly at him.]

SpongeBob:
Ew, snail trail... yucky. [sits on the bed] But, oddly soothing. [Without the slime, he rushes to his window sticking his head out] Good morning, Patrick!

[The camera then pans out to where it shows SpongeBob, Squidward, and Patrick's house. The rock then lifts up, showing Patrick.]

Patrick:
[yelling] Good morning, SpongeBob!

[yelling] Good morning, Patrick!

Patrick:
[still yelling] Good morning, SpongeBob!

[yelling] Good morning, SpongeBob!

SpongeBob:
[yelling] Good morning, Patrick!

Squidward:
[angrily opens window, yells at SpongeBob and Patrick, cutting them off] Would you two knuckleheads keep it down out here?!

SpongeBob and Patrick: [yelling in unison] Good morning, Squidward!

[Squidward slams his window angrily and accidentally closes it on his nose. He screams in pain, then groans angrily at SpongeBob and Patrick. The camera then pans back to the front of the houses as Squidward struggles to get his nose unstuck from his window. The scene then transitions to SpongeBob in his kitchen, cooking breakfast for Gary.

SpongeBob:
Come on, Gary, breakfast!

[Gary burps.]

You're welcome!

[Gary rolls over wanting his belly scratched.]

SpongeBob:
[laughs] Who wants a belly scratch!? [scratches Gary's belly] I love you so much, Gary!

Gary:
Meow!

[SpongeBob holds one of Gary's toys and plays with him.]

SpongeBob:
What's this? [Gary eats the toy whole, leaving nothing behind.] Okay... that’ll come out later.

[The movie's logo then splashes down under the sea with a dark blue sea background, then the scene transitions back to SpongeBob taking Gary out for a walk while It's Always Summer In Bikini Bottom continues to play.]

Incidental Fish:
Morning, SpongeBob!

{SpongeBob takes Gary for a walk around Bikini Bottom and while doing so, someone's pet clam growls and snaps at Gary and he growls and snaps right back at it. Then the scene transitions to SpongeBob waiting for Gary to finish doing his business behind the fire hydrant then it shows the pair riding a bike, doing yoga, and playing instruments out on the street, with SpongeBob playing the bongos and Gary smacking his eyes together. It then shows SpongeBob and Gary both on a surfboard surfing a big wave, then it shows them skating with SpongeBob wearing rollerskates and Gary on a skateboard. SpongeBob loses balance and slips off-screen. Then it shows Gary being a stand-up comedian wearing glasses with a big nose and eyebrows telling jokes onstage.}

Gary:
Meow. [SpongeBob laughs]

[It then cuts back to SpongeBob at the fire hydrant waiting on Gary to finish his business but it then reveals to be Patrick on the leash doing his business behind the fire hydrant. The scene then transitions to SpongeBob and Gary inside a pasta restaurant eating a big plate of spaghetti. SpongeBob then goes back for another noodle but struggles to slurp it up. Then it reveals that he mistakenly started to slurp Gary's eye up by accident. It then cuts to SpongeBob sitting on a log looking up at the beautiful ocean night sky with Gary on top of his head. The scene then transitions to a cuckoo clock with a Krabby Patty popping out of the clock after a ding with Mr. Krabs' voice.]

Mr. Krabs:
Money...money...money! [laughs]

SpongeBob:
Ooh! I'm late if I'm gonna be early! [dashes back onscreen putting his hat on.]

Gary:
[meows disappointingly]

[SpongeBob peers from the side of the door}

SpongeBob:
Oh ho, don't worry Gare Bear. I'll be back before you can say, "Why did he cruelly abandon me like that?" [Laughs and leaves]

[The door then closes and cuts back to Gary]

Gary:
[Meows sadly]

Squidward:
[Sighs] Another day, another migraine...

[It then shows Squidward grumpily walking to his register boat where there he sits down and reads a Kelpy G magazine]

Squidward:
Well, at least I'll get a little peace and quiet before that little...

[Then out of nowhere, SpongeBob randomly pops up by Squidward's register startling Squidward.]]

SpongeBob:
Good morning Squidward, and isn't it a lovely morning?

Squidward:
Nope, not talking to you.

[Squidward then goes back to trying to read his Kelpy G magazine]

Squidward:
I'm especially not getting involved in any of your nonsense today! I always end up with the wrong end of the stick!

[The camera then cuts back to SpongeBob]

SpongeBob:
Ok, Squidward.

[SpongeBob then begins to walk back to the Kitchen.]

Squidward:
[Sighs]

SpongeBob:
But you should know that Old Gertrude is getting pretty finicky these days.

Squidward:
Old Gertrude? Who the kelp is that?

SpongeBob:
You've worked with her for years! She's the 8-burner grill in the Kitchen.

[SpongeBob then goes into the kitchen]

Squidward:
[Angrily] It never ends...

[SpongeBob then skips around the kitchen placing himself next to the grill]

SpongeBob:
Anyway, to fire her up, you've gotta spark the flames manually...

[The grill then lets out a boom releasing the grill into midair for a brief second]

SpongeBob:
Then jiggle the gas jets just a little.

[The scene then cuts to SpongeBob turning knobs behind the grill. It then it cuts to Squidward who is constantly flipping pages in his Kelpy G magazine looking very annoyed with SpongeBob]

SpongeBob:
And then read her favorite story.

[The scene then cuts back into the kitchen with SpongeBob]

SpongeBob:
The Little Griddle Who Could. Chapter 2. "But we are fresh from the freezer" said the patties, "and we're co-co-co-cold." "Don't worry, I'll get you nice and warm." said the little griddle.

[The scene then cuts back to Squidward who is looking really fed up and annoyed with SpongeBob]

Squidward:
What did I just say? I am not interested! Don't involve me!

[The grill then starts to flame then explodes into flames causing Squidward to catch on fire. He then turns around and falls over].

SpongeBob:
Whatcha say Squidward? Squidward?

[SpongeBob looks around for Squidward]

SpongeBob:
Ok, Squidward doesn't matter. I'll always be here anyway.

Mr. Krabs:
Attention Krusty Krew! All hands on deck, front and center!

[SpongeBob then quickly zips into frame while Squidward walks slowly into frame]

SpongeBob:
Aye, aye, Cap'n Krabs, sir!

Mr. Krabs:
Now, who's ready to set sail on another adventure of making me money?

[Squidward walks out of frame. Mr. Krabs then yells at SpongeBob]

Mr. Krabs:
Get movin' sailor!

SpongeBob:
Sir yes sir!

[SpongeBob runs off.]

Mr. Krabs:
Raise the colors!

[SpongeBob grabs a rope and swings up to the mast and back down to pull the five international maritime signal flags above the front door.]

Mr. Krabs:
Hoist the main sail!

[Outside, SpongeBob pulls the rope from the large clam-shaped sign, opening it up to show its sign.]

Mr. Krabs:
Deploy smokestacks!

[Inside, Squidward flicks the lever on a nearby engine order telegraph with a pencil, setting it to FULL while reading his magazine. Outside, the smokestack rises up on the roof. Inside, in the kitchen, SpongeBob sniffs the grill while smoke form it comes up through the smokestack and spread over Bikini Bottom. Mr. Krabs then walks to the door, puts on the opening sign, and opens the doors, leading a herd of hungry customers to run over Krabs flat.]

Mr. Krabs:
[chuckles] Ahh... never gets old.

[Outside, Plankton spies on the Krusty Krab from the Chum Bucket with a giant telescope.]

Plankton:
[cackles] Enjoy it while you can, Mr. Eugene Krabs.

[Beeping]

Plankton:
What the...? [The telescope says "INSERT COIN"; growling] Stupid machine! [Inserts a coin] Where was I? Oh, yeah. [cackling]. Tonight I launch Evil Plan Number 3,087, and finally take possession of the Krabby Patty secret formula!

Karen:
Great. Another evil plan.

Plankton:
What's wrong with another evil plan?

Karen:
Oh, nothing, it's just we're running out of room on The Wall of Failure.

Plankton:
Wall of Fai--?

[He sees a wall of framed pictures of his failed plans]

Plankton:
Karen, why do you keep collecting these?

Karen:
Heh. Memories.

Plankton:
Hmm! Well, tonight… is gonna be different. [Laughs] You see Karen, my computer wife, every time I've tried to steal that formula, Krabs has tried to thwart me.

Karen:
Mm-mm, not Mr. Krabs.

Plankton:
But tonight, that all...what?

Karen:
It's not Mr. Krabs, sweetheart. I've checked the data. It's SpongeBob who's the problem.

SpongeBob:
[on screen] Hello!

Plankton:
Oh, fishsticks. What could that boob have to do with it? Heh.

Karen:
Boob savant, you mean. SpongeBob is the one who keeps foiling your plans.

SpongeBob:
[on screen] Surprise!

Karen:
Not Mr. Krabs.

Plankton:
Oh nonsense, It's Krabs, Karen! I know it is. And tonight, I will finally, extract my revenge! [laughs evilly]

Karen:
Will you be late?

Plankton:
You can't put a clock on genius, Karen.

[Back at the Krusty Krab.]

SpongeBob:

[SpongeBob #2 puts the Krabby Patty to its customer.]

SpongeBob #2:

[Multiple SpongeBob's appear and laugh. Squidward sighs. Then, Sandy arrives with a huge crate.]

Sandy:
Hiya, SpongeBob!

All SpongeBobs:
Hi Sandy! [They all pop back into one single SpongeBob. Sandy stares blankly for a second.]

Sandy:
Did you know in the future everything will be automated?

SpongeBob:
Really? Even stomachaces?

Sandy:
[Laughs] I'm gonna see if Mr. Krabs wants to be an early adopter of my new technology.

SpongeBob:
Wait what?! [jumps on the box, feeling scared] You're gonna replace me with a robot? Don't do it!

Sandy:
No, Silly, that's gonna happen anyway. This is something much more innovative and start-uppy.

[The scene cuts to Mr. Krabs office]

Mr. Krabs:
You have sixty seconds.

Sandy:
It's name is Otto!

[Sandy pulls out a remote, pushes the button to open the box, with Otto whirring]

Otto:
My name is Otto. How may I serve you?

[Mr. Krabs stops when counting the coins]

Sandy:
It's an automated restaurant owner.

Mr. Krabs:
Hmm. Automated? Sounds expensive, Not interested.

Sandy:
Otto doesn't require a salary.

[Mr. Krabs stop walking, with his eyes turned around]

Sandy:
And it can make cold, heartless decisions like firing people because it doesn't have a heart.

[Sandy punch Otto]

Otto:
Ow!

Mr. Krabs:
You don't say.

Otto:
You're fired!

Mr. Krabs:
Amazing!

Otto:
I love money. I love money.

Mr. Krabs:
A cold, unfeeling mechanical robot after me own cold, unfeeling crustacean heart. I'll take it and nurture it and i will love Otto like he was me own son.

Yippee! You're not gonna regret this, Mr. Krabs.

[Sandy then closes the door]

Otto:
You're fired!

Mr. Krabs:
Oh, I could listen to that all day.

[Otto then went to Mr. Krab's desk]

Otto:
No, seriously. We decided to go in a different direction. You're fired!

Mr. Krabs:
[Chuckle] What?

Otto:
Don't make me call security.

[The scene cuts to the outside of the Krusty Krab, with Mr. Krabs kicking Otto]

Otto:
You're fired!

Mr. Krabs:
No, you're fired!

Otto:
No, you're fired!

Mr. Krabs:
Yer fired, ye infernal machine!

Otto:
I'm not fired, you're fired!

[Mr. Krabs was about to throw Otto in the garbage, but he stops, surprised, that there is a fee for recycling electronics and would be fine $5. Mr. Krabs then kicks Otto in the another garbage, but in The Chum Bucket]

Otto:

Huh?

Plankton:
Huh?

[Mr. Krabs then chuckles and walk away]

Otto:
[Slurring] You're fired!

Plankton:
What the heck is that thing?

Karen:
I don't know, but I'm taking it home, it's so cute.

Plankton:
What?!

[Karen holds Otto]

Karen:
Come on, little robot. Let's get you some supper.

Plankton:
Not even funny, Karen.

Karen:
Quiet, Plankton! Shh, don't listen to him.

Plankton:
Karen!

Otto:
I love you, Mom.

[Karen closes the door, Plankton sighs. The scene then transitions to The Krusty Krab at nighttime, getting ready to close, with Mr. Krabs flipping the open sign to close, then he went to the kitchen to tell SpongeBob.]

Mr. Krabs:
SpongeBob! Be sure this kitchen's in shipshape shape before ye head out, boy.

[SpongeBob puts his French mustache on]

SpongeBob:
[French accent] Oui, Oui, Monsieur Boss Man Krabs. Once I am done here, zees kitchen shall be completely spotless. [Laughs]

Mr. Krabs:
Whatever. Oh! I found this uneaten Krabby Patty on table six. You know what to do with it.

SpongeBob:
Right away, Mr. K! I'll see that it's disposed of properly.

Mr. Krabs:
[Shrieks] Who said anything about disposing of?! We'll sell it again tomorrow on our legacy artisanal vintage throwback menu.

[Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob both laugh as Mr. Krabs leaves]

SpongeBob:
Good Night!

[SpongeBob locks the Krabby Patty]

SpongeBob:
Huh, I better start cleaning.

[He starts by mopping the floors. Instead of mopping with his mop, he starts mopping by himself with liquid inside of his body and squeezes it]

SpongeBob:
I'm Ready!

[Then, he landed on a wall 5 times, then, he licks the camera and it's now clean. Then, he cleans the floors]

SpongeBob:
Woah, woah, woah, woah!

[He then puts a wet floor sign, and slides to the griller]

SpongeBob:
Well, good night, Gertrude! Good night, Fryer. Good night, Patty. Good night, pickles.

[SpongeBob kisses the pickle jar, Then he turn the lights off and closes the door. Meanwhile, Plankton is still in a pickle jar with his scuba suit and opens the lid, and takes off everything except his bag]

Good night, SpongeBob.

[The camera zooms on the Krabby Patty]

Hello, Krabby Patty!

[Plankton pushes the button on his bag then he springs up to the counter trying to get the Krabby Patty]

Plankton:
And now...

[Plankton uses a claw to get the Krabby Patty, but failed]

Plankton:
Just got to get it.

[Finally, the lid is open, and trying to get the Krabby Patty]

Plankton:
[cackles] Yes!

[The lid is about to be open, but it has an "Insert Coin"]

Plankton:
Wait, wait. No. No. No!

[The lid closes]

Plankton:
Stupid coin operated!

[He inserted the coin and the lid is finally opened]

Plankton:
Oh! Bingo! Come to papa.

[He takes the Krabby Patty and puts it in his bag]

Plankton:
In just a few minutes, the formula will be mine!

[The bag says "Analyzing Formula", and "Analysis Complete" and it's printing the formula, waiting for it to complete. Plankton then snatched the formula and kicks his bag]

Plankton:
Yes! Krab's fast-food empire will fail, and I will rule Bikini Bottom, as it's new slop king! [Laughs loudly]

[SpongeBob slams the door to see what's going on]

SpongeBob:
I knew it!

[Plankton yells then falls and land in the wet floor, with the formula floating]

Plankton:
The formula!

SpongeBob:
I knew I left my keys there. Oh, silly me.

Plankton:
Come here, you!

SpongeBob:
Huh. No keys. That's weird. Where could they be?

Plankton:
Yes! No.

[SpongeBob opens the cabinet, but no keys there. Plankton pushes the tub, causing the fryers high]

SpongeBob:
Keys, where are you? Come on, show me keys!

[Plankton slips and screams at the wet floor sign and slides on and sees the formula still floating]

Plankton:
[Gasps] Gotcha!

[Plankton finally got the formula, but then the fryer pushes on Plankton and got sliced into pieces and lands on the fryer and screams in agony.]

Plankton:
Ow!

SpongeBob:
They were in my pocket the whole time! [laughs]

[Plankton remembers what Karen said about SpongeBob]

Karen:
It's SpongeBob who's the problem.

Plankton:
I get it.

[The scene transitions to the "Meanwhile" time card]

French Narrator:
Meanwhile, at the palace of King Poseidon, ruler of the 7 seas.

Poseidon:
Chancellor! Chancellor!

[Chancellor opens the door]

Chancellor:
Yo. What's up, Sire? You sent for me?

[King Poseidon looks at the mirror with people holding mirrors for him]

Poseidon:
Chancellor, look. Look at me! 3,000 years old and check out my skin. It looks like a baby's butt.

Chancellor:
Ageless, sire. Looking fresh.

[Poseidon gets out of his seat]

Poseidon:
Ha! I owe it to my subjects to look fabulous, don't you think?

Chancellor:
There are other obligations, sire. Like ruling and stuff. Let's see...

[pulls out his bills]

Chancellor:
I need your signature on these taxes, decrees, this here declaration of war and my paycheck.

Poseidon:
Is that right?

Chancellor:
Yeah.

[Poseidon and Chancellor both chuckle and starts to laugh]

Poseidon:
Very good. Oh, Chancellor, when will you learn to focus on what really matters? A monarch's regime is only as powerful as his skin care regime.

[Chancellor throws away his paycheck]

Chancellor:
Word. Mm-hm.

Poseidon:
You know, some say I have a face like a Greek God.

Chancellor:
Well, you are a Greek god, so...

[Poseidon stops and looks what's happening to his skin, he has a wrinkle]

Poseidon:
Is that a wrinkle?

Chancellor:
Where?

Poseidon:
It is! It's a wrinkle! I look like an old avocado that's been left and forgotten in the fridge!

Chancellor:
Here it comes.

[Poseidon starts to shout]

Poseidon:
I'M UUUUGGGGGLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!

[Chancellor starts putting his noise cancelling headphone on to avoid his yell, and one of his paintings fell]

Poseidon:
Oh, now, where is it? The crawly thing with the round shell and the eyes.

[Chancellor starts clapping to the horn players and they start playing the fanfare to get the snail]

Poseidon:
Where is it?

Chancellor:
Here you go, sire. Your royal snail.

Poseidon:
Oh! Oh, oh, thank you. This mollusk has the rejuvenating power of a thousand facials.

Snail:
[Meows]

[Poseidon rubs the snail on his face, but it's not working, then he stops]

Poseidon:
What?! Is it empty?

[He shakes the snail to see if they have any of them left, then he stops and the snail coughs]

Poseidon:
Take it away! Bring me another snail at once!

[They throw away the snails, then, she whispers to Chancellor that there are no snails]

Chancellor:
Uh-oh!

Poseidon:
Chancellor?

Chancellor:
Okay, uh... Full disclosure, man, uh... We're out of snails.

[Poseidon starts lighting his trident at Chancellor]

Poseidon:
WHAT?!

Chancellor:
In fact, the entire snail population has been, uh... What's the word? Oh, yeah... depleted.

Poseidon:
You're telling me there are... no more snails?

Chancellor:
There are no more snails.

Poseidon:
And you're confident of that?

Chancellor:
Really confident.

[King Poseidon starts to scream and throws his trident at the seahorse statue]

Poseidon:
Oh, Chancellor, for the love of Hermes, my kingdom for a snail! No, no, no. I'm being hasty. Half my kingdom for a snail! No, no, no, a boon. Yes. I'll grant a boon to whoever brings me a snail.

Chancellor:
Gotcha. I'll draw up the decree, sire.

[The Chancellor then draws a decree, then the scene transitions back into Bikini Bottom with a decree posted and he ran away with his horse cart. Plankton then sees the decree]

Plankton:
A Royal Decree from King Poseidon? "To all citizens of the sea, The king requires a snail at once. Blah blah blah skin care, blah bla-" Wait a minute.

[Plankton snatched the decree]

Plankton:
A snail?

[cuts to an memory where Plankton is gonna steal Gary]

Plankton:
No, it's too perfect. Get rid of Gary, get rid of SpongeBob.

[The memory end and goes back to Plankton]

Plankton:
Oh, yeah. [cackles, then laughs harder]

Well, hi, Gary. Gary, do you want to be friends?

[Patrick then spits the litter]

Patrick:
Now we know where he is.

[He eats the litter anyways, while SpongeBob reads the book about the guide of Atlantic City]

SpongeBob:
Not really that awesome, Patrick. Listen to this.

[Starts reading the book]

SpongeBob:
"Made famous by the glitzy palace Poseidon, calls home. The Lost City of Atlantic City is a scary, vice-ridden, cesspool of moral depravity."

Patrick:
Wow. All that, and is lost, too?

SpongeBob:
"King Poseidon has proven himself a whimsical tyrant, known for exciting his subjects by beheading them in a flamboyant floor show extravaganza."

[It shows a page of Poseidon sawing a man, then, he turned the page to not enter]

SpongeBob:
"Our advice for those who plan to travel to who is... Don't." This King Poseidon sounds like a tough customer.

[Patrick eats the litter]

Patrick:
Oh, yeah. Tough

[SpongeBob throws the book to throw the ground]

SpongeBob:
Aw, so what? This is about friends. And friends don't let friends become somebody else's face cream!

Patrick:
Not what friends do.

SpongeBob:
So what if it's dangerous and scary?

Patrick:
So what?

SpongeBob:
What is stopping me right now from going there, rescuing Gary, and standing up to this King Poseidon, huh?

Patrick:
I don't know!

SpongeBob:
Well I do!

Patrick:
What is it?

SpongeBob:
I... don't, have, the... courage....

[SpongeBob sniffs as he cries and screaming and he went all the way to the top of him room like a rocket and land to his room]

SpongeBob:
Oh, Gary...

Patrick:
Tartar Sauce! What's the next best thing of courage?

SpongeBob:
Resolve?

Patrick:
No.

SpongeBob:
Fortitude?

Patrick:
Nah.

SpongeBob:
Commitment?

Patrick:
Nope.

SpongeBob:
Wherewithal?

Patrick:
Mm-mm.

SpongeBob:
Bravery?

Patrick:
No.

SpongeBob:
Valor?

Patrick:
What?

SpongeBob:
Grit?

Patrick:
No.

SpongeBob:
Heroism?

Patrick:
Uh-uh.

SpongeBob:
Gallantry?

Patrick:
Nah.

SpongeBob:
Moxie?

Patrick:
A buddy! A wingman!

SpongeBob:
A wingman?

Patrick:
A friend.

SpongeBob:
Really, Patrick? You'd go out with me?

[Patrick pulls SpongeBob's pants up]

Patrick:
Yeah! Right behind you.

SpongeBob:
Do I smell a road trip?!

Patrick:
That could be my breath.

[The scene cuts to SpongeBob slams the door and laughs with Patrick]

SpongeBob:
Okey-dokey. Now, let's drill down on a plan. Pat, you're in charge of transpo. Just remember, I don't drive and you don't have a car.

[They both stopped walking to realize they heard a noise, It was Otto driving with Plankton while "Slow Ride" by Foghat plays]

Plankton:
Beep beep.

[They made their destination to their house]

Plankton:
Hey, boys. Don't know if you have any use for this old thing if you're going on any tips or journeys or quests or rescue missions. But if you are, Otto is your ticket.

SpongeBob and Patrick: Otto!

Plankton:
Just tell ol' Otto where you want to go and it will take you there!

Otto:
All aboard! You're fired!

Patrick:
Cool!

[They both get in]

Patrick:
A self-driving boat.

SpongeBob:
Thanks Plankton. You're the best!

Plankton:
I know, I know. Bye-bye.

Patrick:
Otto. Find, Gary.

Otto:
You got it.

[Otto starts driving, but it took a spin and crashed at an anchor]

SpongeBob:
No, Patrick. You got to be more specific. Otto, find Gary the snail.

Otto:
Recaculating.

[The car turns back and starts to crash an anchor again]

Plankton:
Ugh. Here, let me try. Take them to The Lost City of Atlantic City [starts to become furious and yells at Otto] and DON'T EVER COME BACK! [becomes calm] Never hurts to employ a little hyperbole.

Otto:
It is my pleasure to serve you.

[The car starts driving faster as they both yell]

Plankton:
Bon voyage, boys. I'm ready, I'm ready. They're dead.

[The scene then transitions to Otto driving]

Patrick:
This is gonna be like one of those buddy movies. We're the buddies!

SpongeBob:
Not sure that really applies Patrick, but--

Patrick:
Why not? Were two buddies setting out with a common goal. We'll argue about something dumb, fight and breakups, only to come back when we realize neither could do it without the other. It's simple yet magical.

SpongeBob:
Yeah. It feels more to me like the journey of a singular hero who against all odds, triumphs over adversity.

Patrick:
[snorts] I say buddy movie and you say, oh, whatever that dumb thing you said.

[They begin to start an argument]

SpongeBob:
Oh, really? Dumb thing, I'm dumb? Oh, I love your sense of irony, Patrick.

[He then sees Patrick ironing his sweater and throws his iron and wears it]

Patrick:
Thank you, I love my sense of ironing, too. Maybe if your head wasn't packed full of sand, you could have ironing!

[He then throws his iron table]

SpongeBob:
Well, better a head full of sand than a head full of rocks, like yours!

[Patrick starts ripping his sweater off and begins to lose it and yells at Otto]

Patrick:
AH! THAT'S IT! STOP THE CAR!

SpongeBob:
Yeah, stop the car, Otto!

[Otto stops the car and they both flew and crashed at the billboard with manatees wearing "I Love (Heart shaped) Manatees" and the title says "Manatees Brothers: Attorney At Law" and they both get off and fell]

SpongeBob:
Sorry, Patrick, really. I shouldn't have said you have rocks in your head.

Patrick:
I shouldn't have said your brain is made of sand. That was mean and dumb.

SpongeBob:
Okay. Let's just forget it, huh?

Patrick:
Never happened.

[Patrick then hugs SpongeBob]

SpongeBob:
Uh-huh.

[As they went back to the car, SpongeBob takes out sand in his head, and Patrick takes out rocks in his head, while "On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson plays.]

Otto:
Hop on in, guys.

[They try to get in the car, but it was a trick by Otto.]

Otto:
Come on, guys. Ha ha ha. Nope.

[The scene cuts to where we see The Flying Dutchman's ship, wrecked. And they both chase Otto to get in the car. The scene then transitions to the Krusty Krab with a lot of angry people wanting a Krabby Patty, while Mr. Krabs enters the Krusty Krab]

Fish #1:
Krabby!

Mr. Krabs:
One at a time, people. One at a time.

[He then chuckles and later starts pushing people to see Squidward]

Mr. Krabs:
Squidward, why ain't I seeing Krabby Patties rolling out the service windows? Where's SpongeBob?

Squidward:
How should I know? And, frankly, you won't find me complaining. Heh-heh!

[Mr. Krabs then opens the door to the kitchen to see SpongeBob.]

Mr. Krabs:
SpongeBob! What's with yer lollygaggin' boy? SpongeBob? SpongeBob? SpongeBob? Get out here this instant! That's an direct order! I don't get it. He has never missed a workday.

[Mr. Krabs then opens the door and the jar was thrown and crashed and he screams with many customers chanting for Krabby Patties]

Big-Mac Lemont:
Hey! Where are my Krabby Patties?

[He then shakes Squidward.]

Squidward:
How should I know?

Mr. Krabs:
It's coming, sir, It's coming!

[Mr. Krabs starts whispering at Squidward.]

Mr. Krabs:
Squidward, get in the kitchen and whip up some Krabby Patties.

[Squidward then walks to the kitchen to set up the stove.]

Squidward:
All right, uh, the Gertrude and what did he say? Uh, spark her flints.

[He tries doing the same like SpongeBob.]

Squidward:
Uh, jiggle her jets, and, uh, oh, yes. "The Little Griddle Who Could". "We're fresh from the freezer," said the little--

[It then interrupts with the grill exploded and flew away.]

Squidward:
Mr. Krabs, we've got a-

[Many people hits Mr. Krabs and get thrown in the walls.]

Mr. Krabs:
Squidward! We wouldn't be in this mess if SpongeBob was around.

Squidward:
Where is SpongeBob?

[The scene then transitions to the desert, with a hawk cries, and SpongeBob and Patrick is sleeping and they both woke up when a car does a bump]

Patrick:
Where are we?

SpongeBob:
We must be dreaming!

Patrick:
You amuse me, SpongeBob. [starts to clean out his glasses] Two people can't have the same dream, let alone be in that same dream at the same time. That would be philosophically untenable.

[Patrick starts wearing his glasses, while SpongeBob holds a book and a pipe]

SpongeBob:
Indeed. You proffer a metaphysical conundrum.

Patrick:
Wait, we're talking like smart people. That must be a dream!

[The glasses fell by itself.]

SpongeBob:
Plus, we're on the surface and we're [sniffs air] breathing air, so... yeah.

[Patrick starts breathing in and out quickly.]

Patrick:
Air?!

[They start laughing anyways until Patrick saw something.]

Patrick:
Hey, town up ahead!

SpongeBob:
"Goner Gulch." Ha! That's a funny name.

[They went to the Goner Gulch, but no one is in this place.]

Patrick:
"The Inferno Saloon. Ye who enter here abandon all hope." Guess that's another way of saying "no public restrooms".

[They both get out of the car to find everyone in this palace.]

SpongeBob:
Hello? [his voice echoes] Otto, keep it close.

Patrick:
Yeah, don't go anywhere.

Otto:
Going anywhere. It is my pleasure to serve. You're fired!

[Otto then drives anyways.]

SpongeBob:
Oh! How are we gonna find Gary now?

Patrick:
Maybe Otto just went to the park.

[A tumbleweed ran over SpongeBob and Patrick, looking shocked as the tumbleweed opens with a head revealed. It was Keanu Reeves as a tumbleweed.]

Sage:
Hello.

SpongeBob:
[yelps] Who are you?

Sage:
I am a simple tumbleweed. Call me Sage.

SpongeBob:
Sage.

Patrick:
Hey, Sage. Good name.

Sage:
Thanks. I'm made out of sage and I am a sage. So it works out pretty well.

[His eye glint chimes.]

Patrick:
I'm Patrick. My name means "toaster" in Celtic.

Sage:
Pretty sure it doesn't. This dream you share has a hidden purpose, young seekers.

SpongeBob:
Oh! So we are in a dream!

Sage:
And I, friend, am the dream weaver.

[The scene then zooms in on his eye and and inside, there is 3 Claymation cactus singing "Dream Weaver" by Gary Wright. It then zooms out on Patrick with Sage in his eyes]

Patrick:
Whoa, are you inside our minds right now?

Sage:
Yes, Patrick!

Patrick:
Wow!

Sage:
I am here to help you on your journey, SpongeBob. But first, you must accept a challenge.

SpongeBob:
But, I just want to find Gary and bring him home.

Sage:
Do you love Gary?

SpongeBob:
More than anything!

Sage:
And, young sponge, once you meet this challenge you may pass on to find your precious Gary.

Patrick:
Oh, right. That makes sense.
