"Spin the Bottle" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season eleven. In this episode, Plankton poses as a wish-granting genie in his latest scheme to get the secret formula.



The episode begins with Plankton disguising himself as a genie in a bottle, in a plan to steal the formula where he'll break the bottle so Mr. Krabs would have to put him in the secret formula bottle. Karen finds this plan dumb and rolls the bottle out of the restaurant, causing it to bounce around until it reaches the Krusty Krab.

SpongeBob obtains it and goes for a lunch break so he can play with it. When he reaches home, he rubs the bottle, making it hot and cause Plankton to come out of it. Plankton tries to get SpongeBob to go to Mr. Krabs, but SpongeBob tells him he's the one who makes the wishes, and starts taking the bottle to his friends.

He first brings it to Squidward, who wishes for a golden clarinet. Plankton paints the clarinet gold and makes the clarinet sound good while Squidward's playing it. Next, he goes to Patrick, who wishes for a second head, so Plankton draws a face on his hand. Finally, he goes to Mr. Krabs, who ignores him at first as he doesn't believe it. Eventually, he's convinced and wishes for one thousand dollars.

After seeing that his wish came true, Mr. Krabs tries to possess the bottle. Squidward and Patrick come to also possess the bottle for more wishes, but eventually SpongeBob tells them they should spin the bottle to see who gets it. It lands on Mr. Krabs, so he wishes for the Krusty Krab to be painted gold. Plankton reveals that he isn't a real genie, and just then, the real genie comes to take back his genie bottle. The episode ends with the genie punishing Patrick, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs by trapping them in a ketchup bottle.
