Nick's Head Explodes
Head Explosions are a running gag in Big Mouth, wherein a character's head will explode in reaction to something shocking or overwhelming, as sort of a visual pun on their "minds being blown". The gag was introduced in "Girls Are Horny Too" and has been rehashed and called back to numerous times, ever since.
