This page describes all of Lori Loud's relationships with her family and friends.
Her siblings generally
Lori is often very bossy, dominating, and tyrannical as the oldest, like in "Driving Miss Hazy", only giving lifts in exchange for her chores. She demands they treat her as a superior, and when their parents are out and she's put in charge, she enforces rules against their pleasures, but she loves them deeply and is always there to come to their aid when in need.
In "Garage Banned", Lori becomes tired of her siblings, but she discovers that she misses them along with them missing her.
She is often very mean and bossy towards Lincoln in some moments. Despite this unpleasantness, Lori deeply loves him, although she doesn't admit it. She is always there for Lincoln even when times are rough for him.
In the pilot, she deliberately cuts in front of him to use the bathroom when he really has to go. Lincoln chases Lori out of the bathroom with one of Lily's dirty diapers so he can meet with his "pressing engagement".
In "Get the Message", she furiously berates Lincoln for entering her room by mistake and angrily warns him to stay out of her room or she will turn him into a human pretzel if she sees him in there again. Later, Lori accidentally breaks Lincoln's video game and doesn't initially apologize. This leads Lincoln to write a hateful letter to her, and send her a nasty message. However, she unexpectedly bought him a new copy of the destroyed game and apologizes for destroying the first one, which she states was very mature of Lincoln for not freaking out over it. She later erases the message herself and berates him for calling her phone, despite not hearing the full message. Although she gave Lincoln a pass on this, Lori found the written letter about her in the bathroom and becomes enraged towards Lincoln. Lori's nastiness to Lincoln throughout the story makes it difficult to decipher just how sincere her apology was to him, as it seemed that she simply did not want to be bothered by him on that day.
In "No Guts, No Glori", it is shown that when the two get along they can make a pretty good team.
In "Sound of Silence", she joins in with pranking Lincoln, using him as a footstool while painting her toenails, but she went tone deaf due to the explosion in Lisa's room at the end.
In "Cover Girls", at certain points, Lincoln imitates Lori, and the latter dresses up like the former.
In "Save the Date", Lori becomes very angry and violent to Lincoln, as she threw numerous things at him. She explained that Bobby broke up with her, due to Lincoln making Bobby's sister Ronnie Anne cry over his harsh comments about her. Lori then forced Lincoln to go on a double date with Ronnie Anne and make her feel like the most special girl in the world, so Bobby could get back together with Lori. Like his other siblings, Lincoln detests Lori's bossiness over him and the rest of their siblings. In "No Guts, No Glori", he stages an uprising to end Lori's tyrannical babysitting methods while their parents are out. In "Driving Miss Hazy", she forces favors from him and the rest of her siblings in exchange for rides around town, forcing Lincoln to do her laundry. In "No Guts, No Glori", it is shown that when the two get along, they can make a pretty good team.
Despite the above, within the first season, she quickly seemed to have gone from one of the meaner sisters towards Lincoln, to one of the friendlier.
In "Out on a Limo", she kindly suggests for Lincoln to enjoy the limo ride himself for a while before the rest of them all go for a ride in it.
In "A Novel Idea", she was the first to give her sympathies towards Lincoln, when she thinks that he had a boring day while she and the other sisters had a good time.
In "A Fair to Remember", the development of their inter-relation from rough to sweet is really emphasized.
Finally in "Ties That Bind", when Lincoln mistakenly believed he was to be kicked out of the house, Lori refused to let this happen and immediately led the siblings in confronting their parents on this misunderstanding.
In "The Waiting Game", the entire story centers around their relationship. After Lincoln informs Lori about a job opening so she can earn enough money for a dress for a school dance, she offers him free root beers and pizza for him and his friend Clyde. However as the episode goes on, Lincoln begins to take advantage of her to get whatever he needs to impress his classmate Chandler in order to get invited to his birthday party, even going as far as to guilt-trip her into giving into his requests. Near the end of the episode, Lori tells Lincoln that thanks to him she has to work overtime to pay off all the free stuff, and won't able to go to the dance with Bobby and sarcastically (but not maliciously) "thanks" him in a sad tone. Now realizing his mistake, Lincoln explains what happened to Lori's boss, and he offers Lori a deal that she can go to the dance, and Lincoln fills in for her. She thanks him at the end of the episode, and they hug before she leaves for the dance with Bobby. She even gives Lincoln sympathy for having to miss Chandler's party.
Their relationship comes into focus again in "A Fair to Remember", where Lori encourages Lincoln to go to a monster truck rally with Bobby as she was not interested in going. When the two become close, Lori becomes jealous as Bobby starts paying more attention to Lincoln, going so far as to "date" Clyde in retaliation. Lincoln sees how much Lori feels neglected, and convinces Bobby to spend more time with her. Lori thanks Lincoln and agrees with Bobby that Lincoln really is a "great bro".
In "The Whole Picture", it is revealed that Lori was the first who fed Lincoln ice cream, and she used to swing him as a toddler.
In "The Loudest Mission: Relative Chaos", they team up to get their love interests back (Bobby and Ronnie Anne, respectively) due to them moving away.
Although Lori and Leni differ from one another in both kindness and intelligence, they are actually very close. They are both enthusiastic about fashion, taking selfies, and talking about boys. They also share the same bedroom. Despite this, Lori will often try to control Leni and boss her around. At times, it seems as though Lori takes advantage of Leni's ignorance and naivety, and makes her complete tasks that she should have done herself.
In "Driving Miss Hazy", Lori didn't want Leni to pass her driving test because then her siblings would ask Leni to drive them places instead of her; therefore she would no longer be able to get them to do favors for her. She sabotaged Leni's driving test but later she felt extremely guilty for her thoughtless and selfish actions and tried to fix her mistake by helping her prepare for her next test.
In "Picture Perfect", Lincoln walks upstairs to see Lori and Leni taking selfies with each other and laughing.
In "It's a Loud, Loud, Loud, Loud, House", they worked together to find the money.
In "A Fair to Remember", Lori tells Leni about her being upset with Bobby because he is paying more attention to Lincoln than her.
In "Brawl in the Family", Lori and Leni had a very heated fight over buying the same dress, which lead to a lot of friction in the house, and eventually with their other siblings.
In "Vantastic Voyage", they go over to a car dealership to take a car and use it to their advantage, and manipulate Steve into letting them do so.
In "Party Down", Leni was the only sibling Lori didn't kick out of her sophisticated party.
In "Potty Mouth", Lori and Leni fight over a sweater which causes it to rip in half.
In "Garage Banned", it is shown that Leni will come to her for fashion advice.
The two aren't seen interacting often, but they seem to get along. Lori asks Luna to play music when she's putting action into a plan, as seen in "No Guts, No Glori". It was revealed that Luna ruined Lori's first Boyz Will Be Boyz concert.
In "Brawl in the Family", Luna believed Lori had the right to be mad at Leni.
In "Party Down", Luna was singing Lori's song from Boyz Will Be Boyz and invited Lori to sing along with her when Lori came to join the upstairs party. Even though Lori felt she couldn't, she ended up joining Luna and they both sang together.
Lori and Luan do not often interact with each other, but their relationship ranges between good and bad at times.
In "A Tale of Two Tables", they're sitting next to each other.
In "Sound of Silence", when Lola tells the other sisters about Lincoln's earbuds, Luan believes the reason he didn't laugh at her jokes is because of said earbuds. Lori sarcastically agrees immediately after.
In "Ties That Bind", when the kids all try to be quiet and behave, while Luan is miming cleaning, Lori irritably gives her a real broom to clean with.
In "House Music", after Lori drops her sheet music thanks to Geo bumping into her and picks up her sheet music, Luan plays her whoopee cushion to make it look like Lori farted.
In "Come Sale Away", when the kids are trying to see who can get Lily's blanket back first, Luan throws a trash can at Lori to try to stop her from winning.
In "11 Louds a Leapin'", Luan caught Lori trying to open a Christmas present, and convinced her not to open a present until Christmas morning.
In "Party Down", Luan really wants to go to Lori's party and begs her to invite her. Lori agrees to let her stay until she kicks her out.
In "Garage Banned", they wash the dishes together.
Lori and Lynn do not interact often. However, Lynn shares her siblings' dislike of Lori's bossiness and does not like being forced to do favors for her. In return, Lori does not like Lynn's wild behavior.
In "Cheater by the Dozen", it's revealed that Lori once beat Lynn with a load of bread when she assumed that there was no more bread, and Lori found there was still a loaf left.
In "Party Down", Lori joined Lynn in her bouncing ball race.
Lori and Lucy very rarely interact, though like all of her siblings, Lori is freaked out whenever Lucy appears out of nowhere.
In "Changing the Baby", Lucy tells Lori that their late great-grandmother was furious that Lori gave away her prized brooch, which frightens Lori, and prompts her to get it back.
In "A Fair to Remember", Lucy helps Lori with her relationship with Bobby, and gives Clyde a gift on Lori's behalf as a thank you for helping her.
They don't have many interactions, but they do generally get along with each other. Like the rest of their siblings, Lori gets grossed out by Lana's tomboyish habits, while Lana doesn't like Lori's bossy behavior.
In "Driving Miss Hazy", Lori has Lana get her retainer from the trash. Lana agreed to it, not for a ride, but because she says she likes digging around in the trash.
In "No Guts, No Glori", Lori glares at Lana for addressing her as "sir".
In "The Whole Picture", Lori lets Lana lounge in her lap as all the siblings reminisce about all the good times they have with Lincoln.
In "Fool's Paradise", Lana keeps Lori awake with her prayer.
In "Garage Banned", it is revealed that Lana often goes to Lori for comfort whenever she has nightmares, a habit that comes to annoy Lori as Lana snores and kicks her in her sleep. When Lori moves out into the garage to be alone, Lana tries and fails to talk to Leni about her nightmares, and wishes Lori was back to make her feel better. When Lori finally decides to move back in, she is happy to share her bed with Lana again.
Lori and Lola rarely interact, but they share some traits, such as being both bossy and easily angered when they don't get what they want. They also are known to scheme to get their way. Like the rest of her siblings, Lori is somewhat intimidated by Lola's infamous temper, and normally tries not to provoke her.
In "Back in Black", Lori blames Lola for taking her lipstick.
In "Lock 'N' Loud", when Lori starts to have a panic attack over the house being robbed, Lola slaps her back to her sanity. Even though Lori thanks her, she threatens to get back at Lola for slapping her.
In "Room with a Feud ", Lori and Lola are paired as roommates based on Lisa's compatibility test. They are getting along well, but they eventually move back with their old roommates as they are grateful that Lincoln is willing to take one for the team and be roommates with Lily.
In "Garage Banned", Lori helps Lola get untangled.
Lori and Lisa almost never interact, and when they do, it's usually when Lori needs Lisa's smarts to take care of something like her homework or scolds her for her freakish experiments. But, they do generally get along well.
In "Left in the Dark", Lori reminds Lisa that she's not allowed to perform experiments on her or the other siblings.
In "Driving Miss Hazy", Lori has Lisa do her calculus homework in exchange for a ride to the planetarium.
In "Undie Pressure", Lisa needs a sample of Lori's feces for her questionable studies, which Lori understandably refuses to partake in.
In "Study Muffin", Lisa tells Lori to get ready for her pre-calculus lesson.
She and Lori have a healthy relationship. Lori often acts motherly towards her, and sometimes carries her.
In the episode "Changing the Baby", she tries to make Lily share her interests, because she doesn't have anybody that likes the same things as her.
In "Cover Girls", Lily dresses as Lori at one point.
In "Potty Mouth", Lori and Leni accidentally swear in front of Lily.
In "Room with a Feud", they are paired as roommates based on Lincoln's compatibility test. They get along at first, but Lori accidentally steps on Lily's phone, making the latter post embarrassing photos of the former online.
Her parents generally
Lori gets along well with both of her parents, much like she does with her siblings.
In "Party Down", Rita wasn't angry with Lori and her party. Instead, she joined.
In "Spell It Out", she comforts Lori after her friends end their friendship with her. She also offers her to join her book club but Lori rejects this.
Lori doesn't like Clyde because of his unhealthy obsession with her. She feels uncomfortable when he is near her, usually because he often makes robot sounds and bleeds from his nose when near her.
In "Left in the Dark", Lincoln and Clyde decide that it is best to watch the show separately, because Clyde will obsess over Lori if he comes over. Later, Clyde asks Lincoln if his sister will be interested in dating younger men (obviously referring to himself) which Lori overhears and answers directly to him "never going to happen".
In "Butterfly Effect", Lori dates Clyde after breaking up with Bobby. At the end of the episode, they can be seen riding a bike together, apparently having gotten married. This is used as a gag, happening only in what appears to be Lincoln's imagination, and is not mentioned in further episodes.
In "Save the Date", Clyde attempts to woo Lori while discussed as a waiter at the French-Mex restaurant when she and Bobby attempt to patch up their relationship, and tries to sabotage Bobby so he can get close to her. This plan fails as Lori is oblivious to his presence and ultimately she makes up with Bobby, much to Clyde's displeasure.
In "A Fair to Remember", Lori takes Clyde on a date to the fair as a way to make Bobby jealous for having spent so much time with Lincoln. Clyde remains comatose through the entire date which makes things difficult for Lori. Notably, Lori shows genuine concern for Clyde's well being after an accident in which his body falls into the water of the "Tunnel of Love" ride, showing that she does care about him. After fixing things with Bobby and Lincoln, Lori gives Clyde a framed picture of the photos they took together at the fair, which again makes him faint in disbelief. Clyde lamented not remembering anything of the date, but was thrilled to have spent the day with her.
In "11 Louds a Leapin'", Lori willingly kisses Clyde under a mistletoe as an act of good will towards him, once again showing that she does care about him, despite often getting annoyed at his attempts to win her over.
In "Lock 'N' Loud", Lori vouched for Clyde when Bobby was interrogating him, showing that she does care for him.
In "Change of Heart", when it seems that Clyde has become smitten with Leni instead of her, Lori tries to win back his affection after realizing that she actually missed the way he doted on her in the past. Later, after realizing that she should apologize to him, Lori admits that Clyde has made her feel good about herself and that anyone would be lucky to be his crush.
Bobby is Lori's boyfriend, and although it's not often shown, they love each other very much. Lori is constantly messaging or calling him with her cell phone and vice versa. If one of the two doesn't call or message for a long time, they will go into despair. This is evidenced in "Undie Pressure", where she can't endure to talk to Bobby and let him enter to her house, losing the bet in the process.
In "Save the Date", she is devastated when Bobby breaks up with her over Lincoln's insulting of his sister Ronnie Anne, and Lori becomes determined to win him back by having Lincoln apologize to them on their date. For all their trials, the two have remained inseparable with Lori being absolutely enamored by Bobby.
In "A Fair to Remember", Lori refuses a date with Bobby when he buys tickets to a monster truck rally, and instead encourages Lincoln to go. When Bobby starts hanging out with Lincoln like a little brother, this irks Lori, and she feels she's become a "third wheel" on their dates. Lori goes out of her way to make both of them jealous by spending an entire day with Clyde at the carnival, to which Bobby remains oblivious. When her scheme fails, Lori breaks down thinking she doesn't have a boyfriend anymore, which moves Lincoln to convince Bobby that they need to spend more time together again. Bobby and Lori immediately make up and Bobby tries to make equal time for both siblings.
In "The Loudest Mission: Relative Chaos", Lori, accompanied with Lincoln went to visit the Santiago household, so they could say goodbye to Bobby and Ronnie Anne respectively. Both Lori and Bobby were so emotional over the prospect of being unable to see each other for two days in a row. After Lincoln and Ronnie pried the two away, the two told each other just how much they'll think of the other.
After Lori heard the bad news that they were moving in with the Casagrande family, she was furious, and instantly started driving to the Casagrande residence, despite it being in another state. Once again, forcing Lincoln along for the ride. Lori was confident in her ability to convince Bobby, and by extension, Ronnie Anne, to stay in Royal Woods, even going as far as saying "I don't know what Bobby is thinking, but I am going to tell him what he should be thinking."
After multiple failed attempts at getting Bobby to stay, such as getting a make over by Carlota Casagrande, organizing a romantic dinner for the two, and even enhancing a heart shaped cookie with a love potion, Lori snaps at Bobby, proclaiming that she believes he cares more about the Bodega than her. However, the two quickly reconcile and hug. In a discussion with Ronnie Anne, Lori admits that she thinks Bobby should stay, and admires the amount of thought and work Bobby put into thinking of a way the two could still be a couple after the move.
Afterwards, the two share a heartfelt goodbye. Lori tells Bobby that she'll miss him, but is looking forward to the future the two will spend together, and Bobby tells Lori he'll be counting down the days until he gets to see her again. The two share one last hug, before the Loud's drive back to Royal Woods.
In "Save the Date", Lori makes Lincoln go on a double date with Ronnie Anne and Bobby, after Bobby breaks up with her, since Lincoln made Ronnie Anne cry. She gets annoyed at Lori and Bobby's "lovey dovey" moments. Otherwise, the two get along
In "The Loudest Mission: Relative Chaos", Lori and Ronnie Anne teamed up in planning how to make Bobby return to Royal Woods. Lori wanted to be with Bobby, and Ronnie Anne simply didn't want to live with her cousins, uncle, aunt, and grandparents.
Because most of Lori's time at the Casagrande residence was spent trying to convince Bobby to come back to Royal Woods, she didn't development much in the way of friendships, unlike Lincoln. Still, she appeared to be on largely good terms with the entire family, who happily accepted her as Bobby's girlfriend.
From the moment he saw Lori, Carl was infatuated by her, always trying to show off, such as by pretending to do hundreds of push-ups in front of her, and affectionately referred to Lori as a "10". Despite this, Lori never really got angry at Carl, but was annoyed by him calling her his "gazelle". Carl hugged her legs when Lori was about to leave, and told her if Bobby ever mistreats her, he will "pounce" like a puma.
Lori and Carlota didn't interact much, but they were friendly towards one another. Carlota agreed to give Lori a makeover in order to get Bobby's attention.
