"Food PBFFT! Truck" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 13. In this episode, SpongeBob and Squidward try to sell Krabby Patties from a food truck in the darkest depths of the ocean.



The episode begins in the Krusty Krab with a line of customers giving their money to Squidward. He opens the register to see that it is full, with money falling out. Mr. Krabs vacuums up the money from the register and collects more as he exits the restaurant. He sees a customer across the street that does not want to get in line. He ends up getting a burger and soda from an approaching food truck. Although he says that the burger is not as good as a Krabby Patty, he appreciates the convenience of not having to move, which gives Mr. Krabs the idea to bring the Krusty Krab to the customers. He takes SpongeBob and Squidward outside to show them a Krusty Krab food truck and he asks them to sell Krabby Patties to customers they approach. Mr. Krabs makes Squidward drive the truck, with SpongeBob agreeing to serve as navigation.

SpongeBob and Squidward drive through Bikini Bottom, attempting to sell to customers, including to construction workers, but they are unsuccessful, with other food trucks continually getting in their way. They approach Lady Upturn at her mansion, but she refuses to buy a Krabby Patty due to how cheap they are. She calls for a canapé truck that pushes the two away. Without having sold a single Krabby Patty in Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob and Squidward explore their last destination: Rock Bottom.

SpongeBob and Squidward drive through the streets of Rock Bottom, as well as the Rock Bottom Mall, circus, and cemetery. They initially see no one in sight, until SpongeBob spots Incidental 211 under a streetlight on the side of the road. He and Squidward try to sell a Krabby Patty to him, but he mysteriously disappears. They chase him throughout Rock Bottom, failing to catch up to him. They see him swing around a streetlight, but he disappears again. SpongeBob tries using jellyfishing to his advantage, and he and Squidward also set a trap, but they get stung by jellyfish after both attempts.

SpongeBob and Squidward reach a bus stop, and they slide out of the food truck to rest on a bench. Incidental 211 approaches them and angrily asks them why they were chasing after him. SpongeBob asks him why he was waving at them, but Incidental 211 reveals that he was drying his armpits. SpongeBob explains that they were only trying to sell a Krabby Patty to him. He almost agrees to buy one, until a bus approaches, revealing that other Rock Bottomites came from a trip to the Krusty Krab. Incidental 222 gives Incidental 211 a Krusty Krab meal. Incidental 211 then tells SpongeBob and Squidward he no longer needs to buy from them.

Back at the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs is shown with a wheelbarrow of money, mentioning that he has gained them from Rock Bottomites. SpongeBob and Squidward arrive, and Mr. Krabs asks how they did. SpongeBob replies that they have not sold any Krabby Patties. Mr. Krabs gets really infuriated until saying that he has not eaten anything throughout the day. Squidward gives Mr. Krabs a Krabby Patty, but asks him to pay. SpongeBob and Squidward claim that as a successful sale as Mr. Krabs eats the Krabby Patty. He says it tastes awful and throws the Krabby Patty against the food truck, only for it to collapse on him, as the episode ends.
