“That's right, a spot. You know the rule. Nobody leaves work till everything's ship-shape, sir.”
Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob

"The Krusty Plate" is the third segment of the tenth episode of season 5, and it is paired with "A Flea in Her Dome" and "The Donut of Shame." In this episode, Mr. Krabs tasks SpongeBob to clean a spot on a plate before he can leave the Krusty Krab.



At the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob finishes cleaning up the plates and is about to leave, when Mr. Krabs notices a spot on one of them and tells him to clean it before leaving. He tries to wash it, but the spot doesn't come off.

He tries using a jackhammer, a bat, and a chainsaw to get the spot off, but they don't work. He crashes a tank into the kitchen and uses it to shoot a sponge onto the spot, but it still doesn't come off.

He finally uses the Spot-Master 6000 to get rid of the spot. The machine causes effects to the atmosphere all the way to Mr. Krabs' house. Eventually, he goes to check on SpongeBob

However, as he's about to open the door, the restaurant explodes because of how much power is being shot from the machine. He gets angry at him for destroying his restaurant and starts chasing him, with the plate's spot finally removed.
