"Shopping List" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from Season 11. In this episode, SpongeBob and Sandy have to collect Krabby Patty ingredients, but Plankton follows their every step.



The episode begins with Mr. Krabs tasking SpongeBob to go out and obtain a list of ingredients, while Plankton is listening to this conversation from afar. SpongeBob starts going around town, looking for the ingredients, while Plankton follows him.

SpongeBob meets Sandy and shows her the shopping list. She decides to help SpongeBob due to the ingredients being hard to get, and they use her submarine to do so, with Plankton going inside a toolbox in the submarine. They go to get a hair of a yeti krab, milk from a fangtooth fish, and ghost dandruff from the Flying Dutchman. They succeed at getting these ingredients, but every time Plankton tries to receive them, he ends up injured.

When Sandy and SpongeBob have gotten all the ingredients and go back to the Krusty Krab, Plankton takes their submarine with all the ingredients. Sandy and SpongeBob meet the yeti krab on the ground, and he is angry at them, as he lost one of his hairs. Fortunately, Sandy gives him the fur from her tail for the yeti krab to wear, and they reach the Krusty Krab.

However, it turns out Mr. Krabs had sent them to get those ingredients to trick Plankton, and that he was ordering the real ingredients in the meantime. This makes Sandy really angry, as he made them go through all their difficulties for nothing, and she beats him up for it (as well as causing her to give up the hair on her tail) and takes his money to get her a new submarine, to which Mr. Krabs said that he deserved that. The episode ends with Plankton's restaurant exploding due to the fake ingredients being dangerous, causing both him and Mr. Krabs to go up into the sky.

Running gags

  • When someone looks at Mr. Krabs' phony shopping list, they see a drawing of money wearing a bikini. When they show the picture, someone whistles in the background. Someone gasps and turns the paper around while saying, "Not that side."
  • Plankton getting attacked by the creature whenever he goes to get the ingredients.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on February 16, 2018.[2]
