Hope? Hope? When I get my hands on that formula, there won't be any hope for any of you! (evil laughter) I mean... you'll be cured in no time.

Role in episode

When SpongeBob thinks he is seeing a murderous Krabby Patties, he goes to see Dr. Lankton, a supposed psychiatrist. However, he is actually trying to get SpongeBob to tell him the secret formula. After many failed attempts, like using hypnotism and an ingredient combination, SpongeBob feels better and goes back to the Krusty Krab.

Dr. Lankton tells him that therapy does not work and that he is still sick, but SpongeBob ignores him.
