Episode Information

"Save the Date" is the thirtieth episode of The Loud House.

Plot

After a hurtful misunderstanding, Lori and Lincoln go on a double date with Bobby and his sister, Ronnie Anne.

Synopsis

At school, Lincoln finds a sloppy joe in his pants with a love note from Ronnie Anne. His classmates tease him and accuse him of being in love with her, but Lincoln asserts that he doesn't like her that way and asserts why he doesn't. Unfortunately, Ronnie Anne was behind him and she storms off, obviously angry about what he said. Noting how upset she looked, Clyde points out that Lincoln may have really hurt her feelings, but Lincoln figures that she'll get over it.

However, when Lincoln gets home from school, a livid and heartbroken Lori informs him that he made Ronnie Anne cry, which in turn led to Bobby breaking up with her--when Lincoln expresses confusion as to why Bobby would care, Lori reveals that Bobby is Ronnie Anne's older brother, and adds that Bobby told Lori that he can't bring himself to go out with someone who's related to someone who hurt someone he's related to (in this case, his sister). Fortunately, Lori was able to arrange a double date between herself, Lincoln, Bobby and Ronnie Anne at a French/Mexican-fusion restaurant in the hopes of patching things up--Lincoln (very reluctantly) goes along with it, after Lori explains that Bobby will only get back together with her if he sees Lincoln being nice to his sister and apologizing for what he said.

At the restaurant, the two couples attempt to connect while Clyde, disguised as a waiter, repeatedly tries to humiliate Bobby and make his move on Lori. Later on, Lincoln and Ronnie Anne manage to find some common ground by talking about how embarrassing their older siblings are. When Bobby sees their siblings getting along, he happily rekindles his relationship with Lori. However, Lincoln sees his classmates are also at the restaurant and tells Clyde to help him to get him out of the restaurant without them seeing him being with Ronnie Anne.

S1E15B Lincoln and Ronnie Anne kiss

Lincoln and Ronnie Anne share their first onscreen kiss.

Their plan to get out fails and Lincoln's classmates accuse him of being on a date with Ronnie Anne. To save face, Lincoln asserts that he's not on a date and insults her like before. Once again, Ronnie Anne overhears Lincoln's insults and she runs off in tears again, making Bobby dump Lori again. Feeling guilty, Lincoln tries to show Ronnie Anne he does care by kissing her in the middle of the restaurant for all to see, much to the delight of their older siblings who immediately get back together (much to Clyde's annoyance).

The next day at school, Lincoln is the butt of his classmates' jokes for his public display of affection but he chooses to accept it because he feels it's better than ruining Lori and Bobby's relationship. Suddenly, Ronnie Anne shows up, slaps him for the kiss and breaks up with him, causing his classmates to stop their teasing and offer him their sympathies. He then finds a note from Ronnie Anne saying that the break-up was fake to get them to stop making fun of him, something that Lincoln truly appreciates. Clyde comes by, upset about not being with Lori, but cheers himself up by dancing with the Mexican musicians and Lincoln joins in as well and both shout out "Olé!" as the episode ends.

Cast

Trivia

Timeline
  • This episode marks Ronnie Anne's first on-screen appearance (she was mentioned before in "Heavy Meddle", but didn't appear physically). It's also revealed that she and Bobby are siblings and that Bobby has very strong protective instincts towards her.
    • This is the first episode where both of the Santiago siblings appeared on screen.
  • This is the first episode where the title card doesn't feature Lincoln's physical form, but the red circle on the title card is drawn to resemble his head.
  • Lori is the only one of Lincoln's sisters to appear in this episode.
    • This is the first time Lana and Lola have been absent from an episode.
    • As of this episode, all ten of Lincoln's sisters have been absent from at least one episode. This also means that Lincoln himself is now the only character to have appeared in every episode so far.
    • This episode has had the smallest main cast on the show so far, with Lincoln and Lori being the only Loud siblings to make an appearance.
  • Lori wears Bobby's "Three Wolf Moon" sweater again, but this time, the wolf is on the right side of the sweater, which could make it a different "Three Wolf Moon" sweater than the one worn in "Driving Miss Hazy".
  • This is the second episode where Lori isn't seen in her normal outfit for the entire episode. The first was in "Linc or Swim", the third was in "The Waiting Game", and the fourth was in "Party Down".
  • Lori's dress shoes look like her normal blue slip-ons, but they have short heels on them.
  • This is the second episode to show an onscreen kiss between two people, the first one was in "Changing the Baby".
  • In the title card, it shows Lincoln marking the 2nd. This may be a reference to "April Fools Rules".
  • At Jean Juan's, Lincoln mentions a "fromage con queso," which translates to "cheese with cheese".
  • This is the first time someone other than Lori calls Bobby "Boo-Boo Bear". In this case, it was Lincoln and Ronnie Anne.
  • Irony: The classmates mocked Lincoln's relationship with Ronnie Anne, but when she "broke up" with him, they said they feel sorry for him. This makes them hypocrites. / On the other hand technically their mockery lead to Lincoln and Ronnie Anne's date and made them closer.
  • Moral: Don't insult others for your own benefits. / Actions speak louder than words.

References

S1E15B Clyde being a gentleman towards Lori
  • Arc de Triomphe - One of the pictures at Jean Juan's French Mex's depicts the famous monument in Paris, France.
  • Tirso de Molina - The "Jean Juan's" in the full restaurant title, "Jean Juan's French Mex Buffet", could be a cultural reference to the fictional character, Don Juan, because the playwright showed how Don Juan had to pay for his sins. Just like that, Lincoln was forced to pay for his own sin, in which his sin was that he made Ronnie Anne cry (unintentionally but he still knew better), which had caused Bobby to break up with Lori. Therefore, Lori had forced Lincoln to go on a double date with her and Bobby, with Ronnie Anne as his special girl, in attempt that Lincoln and Ronnie Anne will get along, for if they do, Lori's relationship with Bobby would be healed.
  • Beauty and the Beast - When Clyde is consoling Lincoln at the end, he says "story as old as time" which is a reference to the film's song.
  • Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil - One of the classmates that makes fun of Lincoln resembles a younger version of Brad Buttowski, character that appeared in the show where Chris Savino worked on.
  • Las Mañanitas - From Lincoln's line "So how about that math test" to when Clyde crushes the nacho chip, the traditional birthday song can be heard in the background.
  • My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - The outfit which Lori was wearing for the date is similar to that of Rarity's outfit from My Little Pony: Equestria Girls.
  • Winx Club - This episode is similar to the episode "A Perfect Date", such as both couples (Timmy & Tecna, Lincoln & Ronnie Anne) has trouble talking to each other and both episodes involve terrible mishaps.

Errors

  • When Lori tells Lincoln Ronnie Anne is Bobby's sister, and shows him a picture in her album of Bobby giving Ronnie Anne a piggy back ride, Bobby overlaps Lori's hair, even though they are behind Lori.
  • When Lincoln and Lori meet up with Bobby and Ronnie Anne at Jean Juan's French Mexican Buffet, Lincoln was wearing his jeans and sneakers instead of the khakis and dress shoes he wears for most of the episode.
  • When Lori jumps into Bobby's arms after Clyde knocks over the desk, the heel on Lori's shoe is missing.
  • Lori has a bracelet on her right wrist for the date, but when Ronnie Anne runs off in tears after Lincoln insulted her, she doesn't have the bracelet.
