"Married to Money" is the second segment and the 197th episode of SpongeBob SquarePants.


Plankton has another attempt at stealing the Krabby Patty Secret Formula using seabears, but SpongeBob stops him by tickling the seabears and covering himself with Jellyfish Honey, which seabears apparently crave. Then Plankton and Mr. Krabs argue, and Plankton says to Krabs "If you love money so much, why don’t you marry it?" Mr. Krabs says that it's not such a bad idea, giving Plankton an idea.


Vincent Waller confirmed this episode on Twitter on September 1, 2015.[1] It aired on Thursday, April 28, 2016 in some parts of the world.


  • During the first airing of this episode, in some areas, a weekly test of the Emergency Alert System for cable broadcasting interrupted the program.
  • This episode is similar to "Safe Deposit Krabs," where Mr. Krabs falls in love with money, although he is hallucinating. It is also similar to "Money Talks" and "Enemy In-Law", where Plankton falls in love with Mrs. Krabs via a 'robot' to get the formula.
  • Different variations of some of the music in the show are used in the episode, with varying instruments and pitches. This also occurs in later episodes.
  • Mr. Krabs mentions he has never told anyone the Krabby Patty formula before, even though he has told SpongeBob, as revealed in "Truth or Square" and the SpongeCopys' in "CopyBob DittoPants."
  • The lamppost appears to be bigger than the one in "Hall Monitor."
  • This episode was temporarily paired up with "Lost in Bikini Bottom" when it first aired on May 3.
  • This episode takes place after "The Camping Episode" because in that episode, SpongeBob is afraid of Sea Bears and meets a sea bear. In this episode, he is familiar with the species and is not afraid of them.
  • This episode most likely takes place before "Just One Bite" because in Squidward's dreams, Nat was the pastor, so this might be where he saw Nat as a pastor in real life to have that dream.
