"Senior Discount" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season twelve. In this episode, Old Man Jenkins disrupts business as usual at the Krusty Krab, but Mr. Krabs can't find a way to kick him out.



The episode starts with Mr. Krabs gaining tons of money. Then, Old Man Jenkins is seen coming to the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs is angered by this and SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs that he likes Old Man Jenkins. Mr. Krabs tells SpongeBob that he does a routine every day.

First he gets a small cup of coffee, as Squidward says that it will be 25 cents. Old Man Jenkins is angered by this and cuts a penny in half and tells him he will get a "senior discount." Mr. Krabs then goes on by saying that he turns on his radio in which it annoys his customers. He then talks about his disgusting condiment soup made of mustard, ketchup and mayo. A fish tells him to turn down the radio but in response Old Man Jenkins whacks the fish and says, "Respect your elders!", causing the fish to run. Then, while trying to get Old Man Jenkins out, he gets an idea. Mr. Krabs introduces his father Victor Krabs to Old Man Jenkins who is older than Old Man Jenkins and uses the respect your elders quote on him. Then Old Man Jenkins introduces his father Very Old Man Jenkins Sr. to Mr. Krabs.

Then Mr. Krabs introduces Grandpa Redbeard and it gradually gets higher up the family tree. Then, Mr. Krabs and Old Man Jenkins are kicked out of the Krusty Krab and go to the Chum Bucket.

The two apologize for the out of hand event before Plankton asks anyone if they would like some chum and they ask for a small cup of coffee. Annoyed Plankton tells the two to get out but in response they hit him and say, "Respect your elders!"
