Incidental 7[5] (named Nancy and Suzy Fish) is a gray minnow with white hair who is one of the most frequently-used background characters. She commonly appears as one of Pearl's friends. She is first seen in the episode "Ripped Pants."


She is usually dark teal in color and wears a mustard-yellow outfit consisting of a T-shirt, skirt, and matching hairband. Her hair is white and in a bob style. In "Bubble Buddy Returns," her hair appears to be a wig.

In "The Sponge Who Could Fly," she wears a magenta-colored outfit as well as a magenta-colored headband. In "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV," she wears a purple sun hat with a pink bow-tie. In season 1 and some early season 2 episodes, she has pink lips and nostrils.

In some episodes such as "Senior Discount," she is light green with blonde hair.


In the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V," she was called "Nancy." When the Dirty Bubble, Man Ray, and Barnacle Man were taunting her at Makeout Reef, they said "John and Nancy, sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!"

In the episode "Good Ol' Whatshisname," SpongeBob's book of names has her name written down as "Suzy Fish," as revealed by Squidward.


Nancy is married to Frank and they appear in several episodes together, such as "Chum Bucket Supreme." Her ex-husband is Fred who she appears in several episodes with such as "Squirrel Jokes."

She was also married to Tom and they are the parents of Miss Rechid as revealed in "Bubble Buddy." She and Fred could be the parents of Monroe as shown in "Truth or Square" but it is more likely that Fred's ex-wife, Mable-Monica is his mother.


She is often seen eating at the Krusty Krab, and in several episodes, she is seen attending Mrs. Puff's Boating School.

She is often seen with Fred, particularly in earlier episodes, while in "No Weenies Allowed," she is seen picnicking at Goo Lagoon with Tom and Miss Rechid.
