"My Two Krabses" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 12. In this episode, Mr. Krabs gets ready for a hot date, but SpongeBob and Patrick give him a little more help than he needs.



My Two Krabses 046

Mr. Krabs tanning.

In the beginning of the episode, Squidward prepares to eat his lunch, only for Mr. Krabs to steal it due to the restaurants policy on outside food. He then goes into his office, steals a strawberry ice cream sandwich from Squidward's lunch, and takes off his shell before going into a tanning booth in his room as part of him getting ready for his date with Mrs. Puff. While SpongeBob is serving a Krabby Patty to Patrick, he hears Mr. Krabs saying it is hot in his office. Thinking that he is in trouble, he goes inside, only to see Mr. Krabs' shell empty and the melted ice cream sandwich, which he thinks is blood, all over him.

SpongeBob gets sad, fearing Mr. Krabs has died from exsanguination, but when Squidward hears about this, he is happy. When he tells them Mr. Krabs had a date, SpongeBob gets the idea to fill the shell with chum so he can still go to the date. He, as well as Patrick, go to his house after buying chum from Plankton, and fill the shell with the chum as organs.

Meanwhile, Mr. Krabs gets out of the tanning booth, only to realize his shell is gone. He tries to go to his house without being seen to get clothes, but upon reaching there, Pearl and her friends see him naked. At the same time, SpongeBob and Patrick have taught Chum Krabs everything he needs to know for the date. They send him to Mrs. Puff's house to bring her to Fancy!, right before the real Mr. Krabs arrives to do the same thing.

My Two Krabses 209

Chum Krabs and Mrs. Puff on a date.

While Mrs. Puff and Chum Krabs are on a date, Mr. Krabs goes to Fancy! so he can have the date. Upon seeing Chum Krabs with his date, he gets angry and tries to stop the imposter. Noticing this, SpongeBob and Patrick grab Mr. Krabs and throw him out of the restaurant believing he's an impostor, only for Squidward to arrive and tell the two the Mr. Krabs they threw out was the real one, and takes the opportunity to mock his tuxedo as payback for stealing his lunch before leaving. Realizing his mistake, SpongeBob apologizes to Mr. Krabs and explains the situation. Chum Krabs then comes out of the restaurant with Mrs. Puff, and Mr. Krabs gets into a fight with him, knocking him out of his shell.

Chum Krabs soon gains the upper hand, but he can't maintain his shape without the shell and melts, allowing Mr. Krabs to win the fight, and he and Mrs. Puff get back together, while SpongeBob and Patrick get taken by the remains of Chum Krabs, as the episode ends.
