"Say Awww!" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 13. In this episode, frustrated that he's seen as cute instead of evil, Plankton builds a robot to punish anyone who says 'aww!'.



The episode begins in the Krusty Krab as Plankton busts through the roof. Plankton threatens to take the customers' Krabby Patties, but he is interrupted by Incidental 82, who comments on Plankton being cute. The other customers go up to Plankton as he runs out of the restaurant soon afterwards. At the Chum Bucket, Plankton complains to Karen about everyone finding him adorable, which gives him the idea to build a robot, Q.T.-π, that will eat anyone who says "aww!" However, Plankton ends up being the first one eaten after groaning in response to being told to take out the trash.

SpongeBob heads to the Krusty Krab, with Q.T.-π following him. SpongeBob notices Q.T.-π and takes it inside the restaurant, introducing it to the customers and Squidward. SpongeBob asks Squidward to watch over Q.T.-π. Squidward compliments Q.T.-π, saying it is cute. Other customers show up around Squidward, but he forces them away. Squidward and the customers say "aww!," resulting in Q.T.-π eating all of them. Mr. Krabs comes out of his office and gets eaten as well. SpongeBob comes out of the bathroom and notices that everyone is gone, thinking that the restaurant closed early.

Mr. Krabs notices that he and the Bikini Bottomites are all in a prison inside Q.T.-π. Plankton tries to dodge the blame, but Mr. Krabs immediately notices that he was at fault. Mr. Krabs asks Plankton how to get out of the robot, to which Plankton replies that they have to escape through the emergency evacuation uvula. The Bikini Bottomites build a pyramid in an attempt to get Plankton towards the uvula, but are unsuccessful.

SpongeBob takes Q.T.-π to the veterinarian. The veterinarian takes a look at Q.T.-π, hearing noise inside it. She asks Q.T.-π to say "aww!," resulting in it transforming and eating the veterinarian. SpongeBob screams and runs away, with Q.T.-π following him while destroying Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob runs towards Glove World!, as Q.T.-π eats Incidental 41 at the entrance. SpongeBob continues running through Glove World! while Q.T.-π eats the visitors. SpongeBob finds what he thinks is an escape path, but it ends up being a "dead end" ride.

Q.T.-π corners SpongeBob, with everyone inside Q.T.-π urging it to eat him. SpongeBob tries to calm it down with music, but is unsuccessful and ends up getting eaten. He lands in the prison, thinking everyone is there for a surprise party, but Mr. Krabs explains to him that he can be used to help everyone reach the escape uvula. The Bikini Bottomites form a pyramid that SpongeBob climbs up towards the uvula. Plankton lifts up the pyramid, allowing SpongeBob to reach the uvula. They all escape and land inside Glove World! While everyone goes for the rides, SpongeBob comforts Q.T.-π, having been left alone. He gets the idea to use it for a ride, with its mechanism of eating people used for the entertainment. Plankton is denied access to the ride due to being too short, as the episode ends.
