Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy try to stop Man Ray with their tub of tartar sauce, but Patrick eats all of it. Mr. Krabs then flies in and spills tartar sauce all over Man Ray, thus saving the day. However, Mr. Krabs then bills Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy for an extremely large amount of money, forcing the two heroes to work at the Krusty Krab for the next six years.
Mermaid Man then admits that Man Ray is not that evil after all especially in comparison to Mr. Krabs.
