"No Nose Knows" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season six. In this episode, Patrick wants a nose.



Squidward gets home from the grocery store 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 then 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 at Noses 'n Things.

After the surgery, Patrick uses machines to remove the bandages of his nose and smells perfume, pastries, 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 cleanser 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.

Patrick Gas Mask

Patrick is seen throwing away Squidward's cheese.

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

He says that Patrick's new nose is very troublesome. The guys think about torturing him, but SpongeBob says that it's not Patrick's fault. At first, they are confused, until SpongeBob explains that it is the new nose that's 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 that his nose will shrink and fall off. The plan works, but Patrick is heartbroken because all he wanted was to smell like everyone else and runs off crying. 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 human ears.

  • The title card background is the stink ball SpongeBob makes to get rid of Patrick's nose.
  • The giant garbage ball on the title card and in the episode looks like Patrick's giant ball of gum from the episode "The Gift of Gum," but made of garbage instead of gum.
  • In "The Battle of Bikini Bottom," Patrick can grow a nose and is shown to have a small nostril in "Wet Painters" and "That's No Lady." He could even smell without a nose, as seen in "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve" (contradictory, he had no sense of smell in "Something Smells").
  • The Noses 'n Things shop that Patrick had his nose attached at looks like a face. It has a nose on the front of the building.
  • The smells that bother Patrick are:
    • 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 end of this episode indicates that Patrick never had ears before undergoing plastic surgery to get them. However, in "Bummer Vacation," he is shown actually to have an ear.
  • Mr. Krabs' nose sensitivity is mentioned for the first time.
  • This is the second episode in which Patrick is called "Pinhead." The first is "Survival of the Idiots," in which SpongeBob calls him "Pinhead Larry."
    • However, this time it is Squidward who calls him it.
  • In Arabic, this episode is called "لا يعرف الأنف," which translates to "It does not know the nose."

Cultural references

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


  • The large wall of noses does not look like it could fit into the Noses 'n Things building.
  • Fred's lips are out of sync when he says, "Well, I guess I won't be eating those..."
  • When Fred first appears at Bikini Bottom Bakery as blue, he has a female voice provided by Dean Kovanda. When Fred appears inside the Krusty Krab later in the episode, he has a man's voice.
    • He also has a voice of Mr. Krabs at the Krusty Krab.
  • When Patrick sprays air freshener on Sandy underwater, she chokes, even though Sandy is wearing her helmet.
  • The SpongeBob in the mind bubble says, "Come on, SpongeBob, be a man!" However, SpongeBob says, "Come on, SquarePants, be a man!" instead of "SpongeBob" when he exercises.
  • Characters have little differences in height next to each other in different shots.
  • When Patrick says, "The scent! Nobody told me about bad smells," the closed captions read "Sick! Nobody told me about bad smells."
