Plot

The episode opens with Squidward at the Krusty Krab, business is slow so Squidward gets out the newspaper, a customer then comes and asks why he is reading a newspaper when he could just get the news up on his phone, Squidward then says Mr. Krabs didn't want to waste money on good wifi, and that he used up his mobile data. The customer then asks if Squidward has heard about the tax increase, Squidward hasn't heard about it, the customer then tells Squidward that the Bikini Bottom Government are thinking of increasing the taxes, because the Bikini Bottom Hospital, and Police Department are low on money. Squidward asks why he should care about either of them, and the customer agrees with him and says the Bikini Bottom Government are having a vote to decide on whether they want the taxes increased or not. Squidward asks the customer if they just came in to tell him this and they say yes, and leaves. Squidward then pokes his head in the kitchen window and tells SpongeBob about the tax increase, SpongeBob shows no care so Squidward tells him he will be spending money on taxes that he could be spending on jellyfish nets, food for him and Gary or bubbles, SpongeBob then screams "no!" Squidward then tells SpongeBob they can vote against it after their shifts, SpongeBob asks Squidward if their votes will mean anything, Squidward then thinks but actually thinks of Patrick dancing in a turkey costume. SpongeBob asks again and Squidward quickly says he doesn't know. SpongeBob then asks where they can vote and Squidward says they can vote in the library SpongeBob asks why they picked the library, and Squidward says he has no idea saying barely anyone uses libraries anymore.

The scene cuts to the end of their shifts, SpongeBob and Squidward say goodbye to Mr. Krabs, he asks them where they’re going and Squidward explains the tax situation, Mr. Krabs immediately goes with them. The scene cuts to the library but only Squidward and Mr. Krabs are there, Mr. Krabs asks where SpongeBob is and SpongeBob shows up with Patrick, Sandy, and Plankton saying they are voting against it too. Plankton says he has no idea why he is voting as he doesn't pay his taxes anyway. A cop then shows up and everyone, including Mr. Krabs, start laughing pretending he was joking. The cop then walks off and Plankton asks Mr. Krabs why he was laughing, Mr. Krabs says he is trying to stop being "an asshole" to Plankton. Patrick then randomly lights a joint and SpongeBob tells him not to smoke weed because they're in a public place, Patrick asks why saying there's no one here except the people in the line to place their votes. SpongeBob then asks about the people in the line, and Patrick responds saying they don't seem to mind, Mr. Krabs then says Patrick has a point and SpongeBob just lets Patrick continue. SpongeBob, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, Patrick, Sandy, and Plankton are then shown placing their votes one by one, Squidward says however that these votes likely won’t change a thing, and someone will likely rig the votes, the others ignore Squidward.

The scene cuts to the next day, business is slow again and Squidward is shown watching Ask Dr. Pig, Dr. Pig is shown diagnosing SpongeBot with robot. The show then cuts to a Bikini Bottom News Flash, Perch Perkins is reporting live at the Court House confirming that the Bikini Bottom Government have decided to increase the taxes and the votes meant nothing and it was always planned for the taxes to be increased. Perch then goes on a rant about the tax increase and says he is moving to New Kelp City, he then insults the news team and says he didn't get paid enough for what he does, he then ends the news flash by calmly saying "we now go to Bob with the Bikini Bottom Journal" but then shouts "so long [censor bleep]-ers." Squidward is furious after hearing the news, he calls into the Bikini Bottom Journal to share his thoughts. A guy named Austin calls into the Bikini Bottom Journal and asks if he is on the air, Bob says he is and Austin screams out "fuck" the call is then dropped and Squidward calls, he goes on a rant about the tax increase saying Perch was correct and he is also thinking of moving to New Kelp City, the call is then dropped. Squidward screams in frustration, Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob, Plankton, Sandy, and Patrick show up asking what is wrong and Squidward tell them tax increase is happening. They all don’t know what to do and Squidward tells them they could just move to New Kelp City, they all think that’s a good idea, Mr. Krabs says he should probably actually spend some of the money he has, maybe on a mansion they can all live in, Mr. Krabs goes to see where they can all move in, everyone else leaves to go pack for the move.

SpongeBob, Gary, Patrick, Sandy, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, Plankton, Pearl, and some other Bikini Bottomites are then shown waiting at the bus stop for the next bus to New Kelp City. SpongeBob asks Patrick whether he’ll get a job and Patrick says he had plans for getting a job but he can’t remember what it was, he tells SpongeBob to let him get high then he will remember. Patrick then lights up another joint and SpongeBob asks him what the job was and Patrick responds asking "what job?" The bus to New Kelp City then shows up.

Friendly faces everywhere

Humble folks without temptation

Going down to New Kelp

Ample parking, day or night

People spouting, "Howdy, neighbor!"

Heading on up to New Kelp

Gonna see if I can't unwind

Meow meow meow meow meow meow

Meow meow meow meow meow meow meow

So come on down to New Kelp

And meet some friends of mine

The scene cuts to the bus now at New Kelp City, SpongeBob asks Mr. Krabs if he found a place for them to move into, Mr. Krabs says he bought a big multi-million dollar mansion, he tells the cast to follow him. SpongeBob then sees a homeless guy smoking weed and drinking beer SpongeBob tells him to follow him. Squidward asks who the guy following him is, and SpongeBob then asks the homeless guy what his name is, and he says his name is Rex and asks if anyone wants some weed, Patrick says he does and Rex gives him some, and Patrick dances in excitement.

Mr. Krabs then stops in front of the mansion, Squidward then says it's beautiful, and immediately tries to open the door with Mr. Krabs having to tell him it is locked. Mr. Krabs then unlocks the door and Squidward runs in, he asks which room is his and Mr. Krabs says his room is on floor 24, Squidward then runs up the stairs Mr. Krabs then says he could've just used the elevator. Pearl then asks which room is hers, and Mr. Krabs says she doesn't just get a room, she gets all of floor 45. SpongeBob then asks Mr. Krabs which room is Rex’s, Mr. Krabs decides to give him a room on floor 32, he also tells SpongeBob his room is also on floor 32. Sandy and Patrick then come in, they want floor 69, but Mr. Krabs won't let them, claiming that's where all his money is, Rex then gives him the money he has been given since he has been homeless wanting it to be on floor 69. Patrick then asks where their rooms will be and Mr. Krabs says they will be on floor 74. Plankton asks which room he got, and Mr. Krabs says he gets the bottom floor, floor -67.

There is then a montage of everyone decorating their rooms. While SpongeBob is decorating his room, his alarm goes off, and SpongeBob immediately runs down the stairs, Mr. Krabs says again he could've used the elevator, SpongeBob ignores him and runs out the door. Mr. Krabs then wonders what he can do with the elevator.

SpongeBob is then shown at a job interview, the interviewer asks for more information about him. SpongeBob responds with "I am a sea sponge who used to live in a pineapple with a snail. I am friends with a pink starfish addicted to drugs, an octopus with squid in his name. A crab that's cheap, that's it. A squirrel who used to have more character but now only cares about science, and that's only if she gets screen time. A plankton who wanted to steal the Krabby Patty for-" The interviewer then cuts him off saying "wait you used to work at the Krusty Krab?" SpongeBob says he did. He is then hired by the interviewer.

The scene then cuts to Patrick and Rex on the couch smoking weed and watching a TV show called O shiri no monsutā, Patrick says he needs to call SpongeBob about it, he gets out his phone and calls him. SpongeBob is shown cooking Krabby Patties at his new job, he then says "my life sucks." His phone then starts ringing, SpongeBob answers it and Patrick just screams out "have you seen this O shiri no monsutā episode?" SpongeBob then says "no Patrick I am at work." Rex then asks Patrick what would happen if he smoked urine remover, Patrick says he doesn’t know. Rex then gets out a lighter and lights the urine remover. Rex then screams out "I can see the light!" SpongeBob then asks Patrick what happened in the episode, and Rex starts singing "I'm walking into the light, wow!" SpongeBob then asks Patrick what Rex is doing and Rex screams out "shut the hell up SpongeBob I am walking into the light." SpongeBob then asks what Rex is on and Patrick says "urine remover." The cashier then tells SpongeBob he needs 50 Krabby Patties and SpongeBob then tells Patrick and Rex he’ll have to call them back, Rex then says he is bleeding, SpongeBob then says he isn’t.

The scene then goes to SpongeBob coming home from work.

  • [The episode starts with the Krusty Krab business is slow so Squidward gets out the newspaper]
  • Customer: Why are you reading a newspaper when you can just look at the news on your phone.
  • Squidward: We don’t have free wifi apparently it costs too much.
  • Customer: What about mobile data?
  • Squidward: I used it all up watching a Kelpy G concert on YouTube.
  • Customer: Oh. Anyway, have you heard about the tax increase?
  • Squidward: What tax increase?
  • Customer: The Bikini Bottom Government are thinking of increasing the taxes, because apparently the Bikini Bottom Hospital, and Police Department are low on money.
  • Squidward: Why should I care about them?
  • Customer: Exactly. The Bikini Bottom Government are having a vote on whether they should increase the taxes or not.
  • Squidward: I don't understand why, but I'll definitely be voting after my shift. Wait, did you come in just to tell me that?
  • Customer: Yes. Yes I did. Well, bye! [leaves the Krusty Krab]
  • Squidward: [pokes his head through the kitchen window] SpongeBob, have you heard about the tax increase?
  • SpongeBob: What tax increase?
  • Squidward: The Bikini Bottom Government are going to increase the taxes!
