190a - Lost in Bikini Bottom
SpongeBob and Squidward are walking to work. SpongeBob feels it was taking a bit long and thinks he should take a shortcut. Squidward tries to explain why SpongeBob shouldn't but SpongeBob still thinks he should take a shortcut. SpongeBob asks Squidward if he wants to join but Squidward declines so SpongeBob takes a different path thinking he can find a shorter way to get there but bumps into Squidward walking in the normal path. He then tries to do another shortcut then he finds himself in an unusual part of the town but thinks it was a great shortcut and tells himself not to forget his wilderness training and tries to remember what Sandy said and then proceeds to find the Krusty Krab and tries to do what he learned from wilderness training and starts with local landmarks and assigns a broken fire hydrant as his landmark. He then spots a sign that appears to be the Krusty Krab sign and climbs over a fence and runs to it. Then the scene cuts to the Krusty Krab with Squidward relaxing in his work station and then Mr. Krabs appears telling Squidward to stop lazing around even though there were no customers.
The scene cuts back to SpongeBob going toward what he thinks is The Krusty Krab but it turns out just to be a sign that says The Krabby Krust. He notices a guy painting signs and asks him if he knew where the Krusty Krab was, but the guy, Sal, says he's never heard of it. SpongeBob told him about it and gives him coupons and then Sal goes there on his truck even though he said he didn't know that place. SpongeBob cries and remembers to use his landmarks and then tries to go back where he came from but can't remember too well. He finds the broken fire hydrant he found previously but then notices many broken fire hydrants. SpongeBob finds a pay phone and calls Squidward and asks what he should do. The operator interrupts the call and tells him if he wants to continue the call he needs to insert another dime but he doesn't have one. He spots an abandoned sofa and then sees three tough-looking fish drinking soda and SpongeBob tries to reach under the the cushions of the sofa to see if there are any dimes but instead finds two nickels and then one of the fish, Scott, asks him what he was doing and SpongeBob tells him that he is looking for a dime. Scott shouts at SpongeBob and says that he drives a pedicab so SpongeBob hops into the pedicab and tells him that he needs to go to the Krusty Krab so Scott drops off to what he thinks is The Krusty Krab but it turns out to be at The Krusty Klam. SpongeBob began frantically running and checks his clock and then starts to make another shortcut which causes him great pain but finally finds the Krusty Krab. He crawls to it and enters, and then hugs two customers. He finds Patrick there and SpongeBob asks Patrick how he got to The Krusty Krab and Patrick says that Scott gave him a ride. Mr. Krabs appears and says that SpongeBob is scaring his customers away and then tells SpongeBob to go home and take a bath. Squidward says that it was his thing. Mr. Krabs says that he is clean and then Squidward starts to roll around on the dirt and asks where his bubble bath was. Then Sal comes to The Krusty Krab on his truck and runs over a puddle which splashes on Squidward. Sal asks about the coupon but Mr. Krabs says it's actually another fee. Mr. Krabs and Sal walk off screen with Squidward still in the puddle and then the episode ends.
