"Face Freeze" is the first segment of the 173rd episode of SpongeBob SquarePants.


SpongeBob and Patrick are making funny faces until Mr. Krabs stops them and tells the reason in a story of Face Freeze. Mr. Krabs tells the story of a fish who liked to make faces at people. But one day, when he stuck his tongue out, it froze. In response to this, SpongeBob and Patrick try to resist making faces but do so anyway. While making faces, they realize they didn't freeze and think Mr. Krabs' story was phony. So they make a face and show it out in public. The next day, SpongeBob and Patrick faces in fact, get frozen and go to Sandy for help. She massages they're faces but only makes it worse by their faces sag out. While at work, SpongeBob tries to keep his face hidden from Mr. Krabs but gets caught when Patrick comes in. Mr Krabs get mad and his face starts twisting until getting frozen. Squidward walks in and laughs at Mr. Krabs' face only to get his face frozen as well.
