Plankton is in jail, but he teams up with his cellmates to break out, and steal the Krabby Patty formula.

"Jailbreak!" contains example of:

  • Famed In-Story: Plankton is surprised to find the other prisoners view him as a hero. (A hero of criminals, but a hero nontheless.)
  • Great Escape: What Plankton planned to do in this episode.
  • Jail Bake: Plankton snaps at Karen for not putting a file in the cake she brought him. Later when he's eaten by a prisoner, a slice of cake and a file can be seen.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: One of Plankton's jail inmates tells a backstory where he used chum as a disguise (deforming his face by rubbing chum on it). When he horrifies the cashier into giving out money, it is revealed that his face morphed to look like Squidward's face.
  • Police are Useless: One of the failed attempts by the security guardso stop the crooks from escaping. After a hole is blown through the wall, every cop blocks it by stacking themselves over one another. They end up getting stuck and the prisoners escape through the front door.

Plankton gives SpongeBob a new spatula, and SpongeBob starts to believe that it's magic.

"Evil Spatula" contains example of:

  • Ash Face: SpongeBob and Mr Krabs get a rather disturbing one at the beginning.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Plankton lampshades Karen's status as this in one line ("my sarcastic wife").
  • Heroic BSoD: Instead of crying over his broken spatula like he did in All That Glitters, SpongeBob screamed over it. He still mourns on it, though.
  • Oh, Crap!: Plankton finds out that a bottle he was using for an ingredient is explosive.
  • Reimagining the Artifact: To most fans, this is All That Glitters done right.

How well does it match the trope?
