“Those poor people. Someone needs to whip them into shape.”

"Larry the Floor Manager" is the second segment of the fourth episode of season 11, and it is paired with "Man Ray Returns." In this episode, Mr. Krabs temporarily hires Larry as the manager of the Krusty Krab while he goes on vacation, and SpongeBob is unhappy when Larry turns the restaurant into a gym.



At the Krusty Krab, Bubble Bass is taking a long time to order, making everyone annoyed. Mr. Krabs gives him a regular Krabby Patty so he'll stop wasting people's time, but SpongeBob reminds him that the customer's always right if they have money. Afterwards, he accidentally spills a ketchup stain, making Mr. Krabs yell at him, only to realize his mistake afterwards. However, he gets mad again after Squidward drops a napkin, and chases him around until eventually bumping into Larry.

He talks about his problems, so Larry tells him to go on vacation. However, he needs a strong man to be put in charge. Fortunately, Larry takes the job as temporary manager. Later, he sees that the customers eat in a disgusting manner and are unhealthy, so he starts putting gym equipment all over the restaurant and making the customers do exercises, much to the dismay of SpongeBob.

Eventually, the restaurant turns into a gym, so SpongeBob and Squidward come up with a plan to sabotage the place. They first sabotage the power drinks by adding butter, mayo, and lard in them, but Larry uses the new shake as an oily concoction for his pecs. He then sabotages one of the weight machines, but when one of the gym guys uses it, he thinks it's a great workout.

Outside, several customers are dying of hunger due to their lack of Krabby Patties. After seeing this, SpongeBob gathers them up to form an army to give the gym guys a taste of Krabby Patties, and they get all of them to taste them except for Larry. In order to get him to eat one, SpongeBob makes Bubble Bass do weightlifting wrongly to distract him and throw a Krabby Patty at his mouth. He adores the sandwich and is sad that he didn't appreciate them before. He takes out all the gym equipment and the Krusty Krab goes back to normal, just as Mr. Krabs comes back from vacation.
