"Cellsea" is the second episode of Season 3 of Big Mouth. It is the twenty-third episode overall.

Synopsis

Nick is bewitched by his cool new phone. A call from "Pharmacy Boy" turns Matthew into a nervous wreck. Jay finds a Netflix show made just for him.

Plot

Nick Birch gets a brand new cell phone from Leah Birch. For Nick, after having a phone slowly dying due to updates, having something fast, new, able to do it all, makes him forget anyone and everyone but Cellsea (his new cell phone).

Diane Birch is also addicted to her phone, where she loves playing Boggle and won't stop. She gets really mad when Elliot Birch tries to talk her away from her phone. At least until he breaks through and, of course, they make sweet and passionate love.

Andrew Glouberman decides to go off the grid because "Fart Boy" is becoming an outlet that doesn’t serve him. But, with setting aside technology, he learns how alone he really is and how his friends are too caught up in other things to share his discovery of nature. So he goes back online within a few days.

Matthew starts to pursue Aiden, aka Pharmacy Boy, another gay teenager in his town. He gets nervous because he has never had a boyfriend or a serious crush before.
