Mr. Krabs is writing down a shopping list for secret ingredients. He hands it to SpongeBob telling him to search for the secret ingredients. Plankton listens to everything Mr. Krabs says with a headset and radio. SpongeBob sings a song about the shopping spree while Plankton tries his best to get a good look at the shopping list. Soon after, SpongeBob bumps into a submarine created by Sandy. SpongeBob shows Sandy the shopping list, and Sandy decides to help. The first ingredient on the list is Yeti Krab hair. Sandy and SpongeBob enter the cave where the Yeti Krab lives. Sandy uses a pair of scissors to cut some hair off the Yeti Krab, and they both leave with the hair. Then, Plankton uses a mini lawn mower to get some hair from the Yeti Krab. The Yeti Krab angrily wakes up and turns Plankton into a paper hat and puts him on his head.
The next ingredient is milk from a fangtooth fish. Sandy and SpongeBob distract the fangtooth fish with some food and successfully obtain the milk. Plankton tries getting some milk but angers the fangtooth fish. The fangtooth fish sprays milk at Plankton, but then he manages to get some milk in a bucket. After getting the milk, Plankton accidentally swims into the mouth of the male fangtooth fish. The last ingredient is dandruff from the Flying Dutchman. Sandy and SpongeBob visit the Flying Dutchman's ship, and they successfully obtain his dandruff. Plankton then tries to get some dandruff from the Flying Dutchman, but he gets caught. The Flying Dutchman gets angry and kicks Plankton out of his ship.
Sandy and SpongeBob are seen heading back to the Krusty Krab, but suddenly Plankton steals the ingredients from the pair. At the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs that they lost the ingredients, but Mr. Krabs says it was a fake shopping list and he had the real ingredients. Infuriated for being put through all this for absolutely nothing, Sandy beats up Mr. Krabs, takes his money and sends him into the air. Meanwhile, at the Chum Bucket, Plankton mixes the ingredients together, but when he adds the ghost dandruff, the whole place explodes. Plankton gets flung into the air along with Mr. Krabs.
