Rev Up Those Fryers


What does Rev Up Those Fryers mean?

Rev up those fryers is a quote taken from a scene of Spongebob Squarepants season 1.

The scene features a fish person walking delightfully into the Krusty Krabs, as he utters ‘rev up those fryers, because I am sure hungry for one..’ but he does not get to finish the sentence, as Mr. Krabs throws him out of the place.

Being a very random scene when taken out of context, rev up those fryers became a popular line used in shitposts and edgy or ironic content.


What's the origin of Rev Up Those Fryers?

The quote originates from the episode called ‘Arrgh!’ , featuring Spongebob, Patrick and Mr. Krabs going on a treasure hunt based on a boardgame’s treasure map.

The scene is shown at one of the early parts of the episode.
