From SpongePedia, the First SpongeBob Wiki.
Barnacle Face is an episode from Season 8.
The night before the big school dance, Pearl gets a large barnacle on her face. After requesting expensive treatment to get rid of the blemish, Mr. Krabs opts instead to make SpongeBob help her out. He tries prying the barnacle out with his spatula, then a shovel, then a jackhammer, all to no avail. Then, when Pearl washes her face with soap, more barnacles sprout up. Thinking all hope is lost, she locks herself in the restroom and cries violently. SpongeBob then decides to simply hide the barnacles under a layer of facial cream, which ends up making Pearl's face look severely deformed. Finally, when Pearl asks SpongeBob to get her more soap from the basement, he finds Mr. Krabs producing the house's soap from leftover Krabby Patties. When Pearl finds out, she screams at her father and gives up trying to remove the barnacles. SpongeBob, inspired by something she said, resolves to cover up the barnacles with Mr. Krabs' precious jewels, much to Krabs' disdain.
