Pat No Pay

  • Jerkass Woobie: Mr. Krabs. Yes, he was being greedy trying to get Patrick to pay for hundreds of Krabby Patties (it's never indicated that Patrick actually ordered that many Krabby Patties, it's most likely that Patrick only wanted one but Mr. Krabs gave him a skyscraper-high pyramid of patties just so he'd have to pony up more) but he probably didn't deserve getting his restaurant and all his money destroyed in the process.

  • Take That, Scrappy!: Attempted in "Pat No Pay". Mr. Krabs serving as a total Butt-Monkey throughout the episode should evoke satisfaction given his numerous misdeeds... but the audience ends up siding with him because he is completely in the right.
  • Unintentionally Sympathetic: All Mr. Krabs wanted in "Pat No Pay" was to be paid for his merchandise. He doesn't do anything illegal or overly villainous, and his forcing Patrick to work off his debt is completely justified.

How well does it match the trope?
