"Atlantis SquarePantis"

After connecting the two pieces of the Atlantean amulet, Squidward, SpongeBob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, and Sandy board the Sea Ship Atlantis. Mr. Krabs asks who is manning the bus and the robot leaves a compartment and greets them. He gives the name of the bus and explains that their trip is non-stop and that they should relax. After the group gets comfortable, the robot explains that the bus is out of fuel.

After taking the bus to a gas station and attempting to use a gas hose on the bus, the robot explains that the Atlanteans have moved past fossil fuels and use songs instead. After a musical number, Patrick tries to make a song, but cannot. The robot then says that they have run out of song fuel. The bus ends up crash-landing in Atlantis.
