On King Neptune's 5,000th birthday, Queen Amphitrite, King Neptune's wife, calls the Krusty Krab and sets reservations to celebrate King Neptune's birthday. Mr. Krabs sets up a crowd of watch
ers and cooks 5,000 Krabby Patties for King Neptune just as he arrives. However, King Neptune is overly depressed about his son, Triton, when Spongebob mentions him. To ease King Neptune's pain, Spongebob releases Triton from his shrunken cage and Triton drives them to Bikini Bottom. However, Triton abandons them and destroys Bikini Bottom and the Krusty Krab. Spongebob, horrified, and Patrick sneak into the Krusty Krab via the grill and free King Neptune, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Queen Amphitrite (whom Triton had captured). As King Neptune is about to re-lock up Triton, he sees the destruction Triton caused. Happy with Triton for using his god powers, the two leave as Spongebob and Patrick are chased by an angry mob of Bikini Bottomites.
