As The Brain wandered down the hallway of Lakewood Elementary, he saw his classmate Jenna Morgan seated on a bench, looking miserably sad. "What's wrong, Jenna?" he asked as he drew closer.

"I hate my nose," Jenna lamented. "It's ugly. Sue Ellen has a cute button nose, but my nose is flat and pointy."

"I think I can help you there," said Brain. "For my science project I'm working on a nose transfer device. It can copy a nose from one person's face to another person's face."

"That's so cool!" Jenna's face lit up. "Can I be your first test subject?"

"Sure," said Brain, grinning.

"I just have one question," said Jenna. "Did you know when you started working on your nose transfer device that one of your friends would want a new nose?"

"No," replied Brain. "I'm just lucky that way."

The next day Brain's nose transfer device was finished, and he brought it to class in order to demonstrate it. Jenna and Sue Ellen sat on chairs at the front of the room, and Brain attached the device to the two girls' noses.

"Make sure you have it pointed the right way," said Sue Ellen. "I don't want to end up with Jenna's nose on my face."

"I just hope this thing works," said Brain, "or who 'nose' whose nose you'll end up with." The kids in Mr. Ratburn's class groaned at Brain's awful pun.

Brain flipped a switch on the device, and lights started to flash on the cord connecting Jenna's nose with Sue Ellen's nose. After a few seconds he switched it off and removed it. To the amazement of the other students, Jenna now had a cute catlike nose, while Sue Ellen's nose hadn't changed at all.

Taking a handheld mirror from Brain, Jenna cried out in disgust when she saw her new reflection. "Oh, this is awful!" she complained. "This nose doesn't go with the rest of my face. It's just not me without my nose. I want my old nose back, Brain."

"But your old nose no longer exists," Brain told her. "I'd have to transfer a nose from somebody who has a nose like your old one."

"But I'm the only character on the show with a nose like that," Jenna pointed out.

"Then you're stuck," said Brain. "I'm sorry."

The next day, as Muffy wandered down the hallway of Lakewood Elementary, she saw Jenna seated on a bench, looking miserably sad. "What's wrong, Jenna?" she asked as he drew closer.

"I hate my nose," Jenna lamented, gesturing at her new catlike nose.

"I know the number of a good plastic surgeon," said Muffy.
