- “Now all we need are the lyrics. You know something personal. Maybe a secret you know, or a favorite recipe, hmm?”
"Krabby Road" is the second segment of the first episode of season 6, and it is paired with "House Fancy." In this episode, Plankton forms a band with SpongeBob to get information about the formula from his song.
A police officer shows a new recruit Plankton's cell at Bikini Bottom Jail on his first day, but he ends up escaping the prison. At the Chum Bucket, Karen kicks Plankton out along with his stuff. He hears SpongeBob singing a song about the Krabby Patty and, after learning it's the censored version, asks for him to sing the uncensored version.
SpongeBob thinks Plankton wants to start a band, which he sees as a way to learn about SpongeBob's Krabby Patty songs. They form a band with them both as well as Patrick, and Squidward also accepts, but works on his muscles first. At SpongeBob's garage, Plankton brings T-Shirts which say "Plankton and the Patty Stealers," which SpongeBob and Patrick fortunately do not get suspicious over.
Later, Plankton pulls a machine into the garage and uses headphones connected to the machine on SpongeBob to find out the lyrics of the Krabby Patty song. SpongeBob starts singing random songs until the machine gets destroyed after Patrick puts on the headphones.
Afterwards, SpongeBob says their first gig is at the Krusty Krab next week when nobody's there, giving Plankton another plan. Once Squidward comes by with huge muscles, the band practices for one week until they finally have to go to their gig. Some cops come by, so Plankton convinces SpongeBob to hide him in his nose.
After confronting the cops, they head to the Krusty Krab again and set up all their equipment, only to find Plankton has ditched them and was stealing the formula. Right at this time, the cops have reached him and have put him in a smaller cell than before, while his band are practicing for their next gig.
