“I think you'll find working at the Krabby O'Monday's to be a both learning experience and enjoyable one.”

"Selling Out" is the first segment of the fifth episode of season 4, and it is paired with "Funny Pants." In this episode, Mr. Krabs sells the Krusty Krab in exchange for money, but dislikes the new way the restaurant's being managed.



Mr. Krabs sings about money as a bunch of customers come to the Krusty Krab. Howard Blandy and his group come to buy the restaurant. Mr. Krabs says it's not for sale, until they show him the amount of money he'll get for selling it. He instantly sells it to them and retires, with the restaurant being renamed to the Krabby O' Mondays and Carl being SpongeBob and Squidward's new manager.

Mr. Krabs ends up doing everything he wanted to do before noon. He asks Pearl if she wants to do something with him, but she tells him to get a life. Later, he sees a help wanted sign on the Krabby O' Mondays and becomes the new bus boy, making SpongeBob excited. He sees Squidward happy, only to realize he's only like this because of Carl's rule, and he secretly asks him to help him.

Carl comes over to see what's going on. Mr. Krabs asks what he did to the real Squidward, only for him to walk away. Meanwhile, he notices that the Krabby Patties are manufactured and the cash registers are automated. He asks Carl what he did with his restaurant, only to say the customers are fine with their patties.

He shows a customer what they are actually eating, as well as takes out the automated cash register and shoves it into the Krabby Patty making machine. This makes it to overflow and cause a flood of gray sludge through the restaurant, creating a giant mess in the restaurant. Afterward, Mr. Krabs buys back the restaurant for full price, and the Krusty Krab is back in business.
