A little later, Plankton is seen crying on the bench because he has two ice cream cones when he only wanted one, so SpongeBob agrees to eat one of them for him.

A talking ice cream cone can be seen in SpongeBob's brain during his dream.

"The Fish Bowl"

While SpongeBob reluctantly does so, the ice cream starts dripping in the process, so Patrick tries to prevent this by eating the cone, much to SpongeBob's anger.

"Patrick's Coupon"

Patrick wants to get SpongeBob an ice cream at Ice Cream, and gets served a Heavenly Paradise sundae. However, his coupon is expired so he goes to the Ice Cream King.
