"The ASSes" is the eighth episode of Season 3 of Big Mouth. It is the twenty-ninth episode overall.

Synopsis

A big standardized test sends everyone into a panic -- except for Jay, who just scored an Adderall prescription.

Plot

Diane and Elliot take Jay to a doctor who decides to put him on Adderall. Which does lead Diane to ask about therapy but the doctor completely disregards that for an easy fix.

Standardized tests are freaking out many for, like in the case of Shannon, they make it seem they will dictate the rest of these 7th graders life. What doesn’t help though is Missy taking things with ease, Andrew freaking out, and Jay’s offer of Adderall which does make Nick jumpy, but he seems focused. Depression Kitty finds Jessi again and tries to lead her back into depression.

The pressure to do well eventually hits Missy, leading to her hitting up Jay and having adverse effects to the Adderal. Then, someone snitched and the cops haul Jay in for selling drugs. Luckily for Jay, his dad bails him out and takes him home.
