"Disclosure the Movie: The Musical!" is the ninth episode of Season 3 of Big Mouth. It is the thirtieth episode overall.

Synopsis

A provocative school musical unleashes Missy's inner thespian -- and her new Hormone Monstress. The "Queer Eye" fab five pay a visit to Coach Steve.

Plot

The school puts on a musical based on Disclosure the movie. The kids audition, get their parts, and then rebel when they realize the play and the casting (done by Mr. Lizer was extremely sexist. Director Lizer insists the musical adaptation is “an exploration of the dangerous times that we men are now forced to navigate." This sends Jessi over the edge. She says “This play discredits women who have the courage to speak out! It’s a misogynistic fantasy!”

Meanwhile, Coach Steve ends up on an episode of Queer Eye, after being nominated by Jay.

Ignored by Lizer and most of her friends, Jessi quits, along with a few others. Gina leaves over being cast as Señorita Cleaning Lady (a part, per Mr. Lizer, that only exists “because diversity”), as does Matthew, who misses out on the lead role because he’s gay, and gay men "can’t be a romantic lead."

Missy and Nick both play the lead parts and have sexual tension on stage. After the show (which got shut down because of protests), they share a passionate kiss. Andrew sees the whole thing and their rivarly begins.
