"No Nose Knows" is the second segment of the 108th episode of SpongeBob SquarePants.


Squidward gets home, and SpongeBob and Patrick are in Squidward's flowers. Patrick is upset when Squidward says he has no nose. Patrick picks up a hermit crab shell, thinking it is his nose but it bites him. SpongeBob and Patrick are then walking around town where Patrick says all of his friends have noses. SpongeBob suggests he should have plastic surgery. After the surgery, Patrick uses machines to remove the bandages of his nose and smells perfume, pasteries, Squidward's second purchase of flowers, and more good smells. However, he smells bad onion rings and a dumpster that chases him but when he gets home he discovers how messy his house is. So, in 48 hours, Patrick cleans his rock up with a spray and a brush. SpongeBob and Squidward walk by, and Patrick smells more bad smells. He smells imported cheese, and puts a mask on to get it away.

Squidward tells him that it's suppose to smell like that. It then cuts to SpongeBob at his house lifting weights, when Patrick comes by and makes SpongeBob drop the weight. He plugs up SpongeBob's holes so no one will smell it. Patrick then goes to the Krusty Krab and where he puts scented candles at each table and sprays it with air freshener. Mr. Krabs is angry about that because his customers are leaving. Patrick sprays Sandy with the freshener, causing Mr. Krabs to get SpongeBob, Squidward and Sandy to the Krusty Krab.

He says that Patrick's new nose is very troublesome. The guys think about torturing him, but SpongeBob said that it not Patrick's fault. At first, they were confused and SpongeBob explains that it's the nose that causing him to act like this since his grandmother always tells him "Punish the nose, not the man". He suggests they should use a garbage ball so his nose will shrink and fall off. The plan works, but Patrick is very sad because all he wanted was to smell like everyone else. They bury the nose, and SpongeBob is also sad. Squidward says he doesn't care one thing about the nose. He also says that pink moron will leave them alone and then Patrick says "I heard that", with large ears.

  • Mr. Krabs' nose sensitivity is mentioned for the first time.
  • In "The Battle of Bikini Bottom", Patrick had the ability to grow a nose, and was shown to have a small nosehole in Wet Painters. He could even smell without a nose, as seen in Rock-a-Bye Bivalve (although, contradictory, he had no sense of smell in Something Smells).
  • The title card background is the stink ball SpongeBob made to get rid of Patrick's nose.
  • The giant garbage ball on the title card and in the episode looks like Patrick's nasty giant ball of gum from the episode The Gift of Gum, but made of garbage instead of gum.
  • The smells that bothered Patrick were:
    • Rotten onion rings
    • Garbage bin
    • The smell of his house
    • Squidward's cheese
    • SpongeBob's sweaty holes
    • The smell of the Krusty Krab
    • Sandy
    • The garbage ball.
  • The plot of this episode is almost similar to the Rocko's Modern Life episode "Nothing to Sneeze At" where Bev Bighead gets amphibial blothal bloaticitis and gets a nose transplanted on and enjoys every smell but can't stand the smell of Ed. Incidentally, that episode was co-written and directed by Doug Lawrence.

Cultural References

  • The episode's title is a reference to the tongue-twister No nose knows snow like a snowman's nose knows.


  • Fred is first seen as a blue fish with a kid's voice. When he appears is the Krusty Krab later on, he is a darker shade of blue with his manly voice. This was a likely error.
  • When Patrick sprays air freshener on Sandy underwater, she chokes. But Sandy is wearing her helmet.
