"Perfect Chemistry" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 7. In this episode, Sandy makes a teleporter, which Plankton tries to use to steal the formula.



Perfect Chemistry 047

Plankton as an aroma as for another plot to steal the formula.

The episode begins with Sandy and SpongeBob at the treedome working on a teleporter to teleport Sandy's acorns to Texas. Unfortunately, the teleporter fails.

The scene then changes to the Chum Bucket where Plankton is manically laughing for he just completed a new invention. Karen and Plankton converse for a while, until Plankton enters the invention and becomes a gas. He travels across the street to the Krusty Krab and slips through the door and into Mr. Krabs' office. Mr. Krabs is revolted by the smell and uses a fan to blow him away. Meanwhile, Plankton is blown to the treedome where SpongeBob instantly recognizes him and Sandy is impressed that he was able to turn himself into a gas.

Perfect Chemistry 120

SpongeBob as a test monkey.

Sandy and Plankton converse while Sandy decides to come over and help combine Plankton's invention with Sandy's teleporter. While at the Chum Bucket, Sandy and Plankton talk about science while SpongeBob is upset and feels left out. Sandy then tells him that he can be the test monkey.

Plankton and Sandy hook cables up to SpongeBob and teleport him to the Krusty Krab. Unfortunately, only his eyes teleport. Squidward is frightened and tells Mr. Krabs who thinks that Squidward just has bad gas. Plankton and Sandy teleport SpongeBob back to the Chum Bucket. This continues until SpongeBob's entire body gets teleported. Plankton then traps Sandy and SpongeBob in a cage and teleports him to the bottle where the Krabby Patty formula is stored. Then, Sandy teleports the Krabby Patty formula back to her and SpongeBob, leaving Plankton stuck in the bottle. Sandy says that she knew Plankton was in it for the formula the entire time. The episode ends with Sandy bragging that she cannot be fooled and laughing evilly.

Cultural references[]

  • The episode title is a pun on the term "perfect" or "good chemistry," which refers to a relationship between two or more people who share common interests and work well together.


  • The episode continually switches between day and night. When Plankton first meets up with SpongeBob and Sandy, it is night, but when it cuts to the Krusty Krab, it is daytime. This happens again in the final shot, where it is daytime at the Krusty Krab, but when it cuts to Sandy laughing evilly, it is night.
Perfect Chemistry 078

Plankton didn't wear a water helmet.

  • When Plankton transports himself into Sandy's treedome, he does not have a water helmet on and he seems to be breathing normally, despite being a sea creature.
  • Normally when the inside of SpongeBob's body is shown it has holes, but in this episode, it does not.
