Explanation:
It's very weird. Paul's answer should be ok if it was misspelled. (The right spelling for Paul's answer should be "Ell no es important, ¿saps?, ¿ja saps perquè?, ¿no, ¿si?")

"El nas" actually means "the nose", but "the nose isn't important, you know" doesn't make any sense, does it? :-)

"The nose is important, y'know? And you...


Explanation:
know why, don't you? Yes, you do." Too many question marks, don't need more than two...plus tag q's. Possibly she's referring to the sense of smell metaphorically. Otherwise she's thinking of the nose as, say, a way to guess at the personality of a person, or, say again, as a tool to be used in whichever game two people may engage in. Oh goddess...the "smell" reason should do...! Cheerio :-)
