There's plenty of crying in I've Got Your Nose.
The key to a good game of I've Got Your Nose isn't tricking a child into believing you've removed the nose from their face. Any adult can do that. Kids are famously easy to trick and are incredibly ignorant when it comes to understanding how the human body works. The trick to a good game is convincing the child that, not only can you remove body parts with a gentle tug, but that you can reattach them just as easily, time and time again.
It also doesn't hurt to have a child that is a straight up glutton for punishment. That's what makes Jesse Fulcher and his son the Jordan and Pippen of I've Got Your Nose. The boy freaks out when dad gets his ear, but he's still willing to put his trust, along with his nose, in his father's hands.
