Mr. Krabs shows SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Pearl and Sandy pictures of his vacation to the Bikini Bottom Mint. Pearl thought that they were going to Super Mega Mall World, Planet Rollercoaster or the Teenage Boy Museum, but when Pearl finds out their real destination, she storms off the Teenage Boy Museum, which was just demolished for no reason. However, Mr. Krabs interferes with the tour and is nearly killed by the machines. He floods the mint with his tears when he finds out they destroy old money (to make new money). When Bill, the guide is about to tell them to leave, burglars break in and SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs stop them. As rewards, they get dollars with their faces printed on it. Mr. Krabs steals SpongeBob's dollar and then Pearl steals both their dollars for new shoes. Mr. Krabs then cries again, thus flooding the mint again.
