This is a good episode in my opinion, the scene that made me laugh and I enjoyed was when Squidward forced Mr.Krabs to pull out his golden tooth and he actually had one and he pulled it out :P That actually made me laugh! I also liked the fact that he was WORRIED about Pearl's health! He was cheap (like always) but if you've seen a scene he looks worried about her (at the end) . I don't like that Mr.Krabs was invading people's houses at midnight like a burglar..he could just buy her something or do what they did at the end (that they made her a Krabby Patty) but he is so cheap :P it was funny actually , so I am going to rate this episode a 8/10 :)
I underestimated how good this episode was up until now...this episode is DEFINITELY one of the funniest of the season, and that is definitely saying something. There were many funny jokes like the peanut worms, Krabs going into people's houses, "yummy stuff", and the golden tooth. That's not to say that this episode has flaws, however. First of all, this episode ruined the Kruff dynamic in a way that just annoyed me. Kruff is my favorite shipping of the show and watching these two interact in Growth Spout left me feeling ambivalent. Not sure whether to be angry or refreshed, I dunno. Of course Krabs is his normal cheapskate self in this episode, but it works since he is actually taking care of his daughter here, so that's something. Nonetheless, this is one of the least-bad season 7 episodes, despite the many flaws that it had. I give it an 8/10.
