==Synopsis==
  +
The episode begins in the [[Krusty Krab]], where a male fish receives a [[Krabby Patty]], but then a baby comes and takes the patty. Everyone thinks it is cute, but Mr. Krabs is able to see Plankton inside the baby. Mr. Krabs starts beating him up, but because everybody thinks it is a real baby, they were all outraged. Then Mr. Krabs rips off the head, revealing Plankton inside a baby robot. Mr. Krabs puts the head back on and launches him back to the [[Chum Bucket]]. Three women notice this and assault Mr. Krabs, shocked that Krabs would do such a thing.

Karen then takes off the diaper and puts it in the trash where Plankton walks out. Karen told him that he should get a pet and SpongeBob, who just happened to hear their conversation, decided to help him look for a pet. At the animal shelter, Plankton sees a guard worm, an old gross snail, and even Patrick. Plankton almost gets swallowed by a pet, but then an [[amoeba]] saves his life. [[File:Plankton's Pet.jpg|thumb]]Plankton chooses the amoeba as his pet and decides to call him Spot.

At the Chum Bucket, Plankton teaches Spot some tricks like stay, sit, and roll over. Then he teaches him how to steal a Krabby Patty. Plankton was not finished talking when Spot left to the Krusty Krab, unseen, to get a Krabby Patty. When Spot comes back, Plankton is rapt, thinking he finally won but is then enraged when Spot eats the Krabby Patty in one bite. He punishes Spot by tying his leash to the mailbox. Seconds later, Plankton feels bad, but when he runs back outside he finds Spot's leash, with no amoeba to be seen.

Plankton then goes out to find him, with SpongeBob's help. Soon, they stumble upon the shelter, then go inside. It is very dark inside so SpongeBob tries to find the light switch. There are two switches, so SpongeBob turns on both. One turns on the lights, and the other opened the pens. The guard worm, sea monkey, and sea urchin all chase SpongeBob and Plankton. When they lose the animals, Plankton realizes Spot had been on his optical cornea (his eye) the whole time. The other pets then find Plankton and SpongeBob again so Spot tries to scare them off. The animals laugh at Spot because he is so small but then he grows about a hundred times bigger and easily scares the animals away.
