Episode Information

"Snow Way Out" is the forty-ninth episode of the second season, the one-hundred-first episode, and the second season finale of The Loud House.

Plot

Lana convinces her siblings to go to the Burpin' Burger to meet her racecar driving hero, despite the heavy snowfall.

Synopsis

While Leni is using a hair dryer to heat up a pot of goulash, Lana, in a state of hurry, says that her favorite racecar driver, Bobbie Fletcher, is holding a contest at the Burpin' Burger, saying that the winner gets to be a member of her pit crew. Just when Lana finishes her story, the other siblings are already in the van, having been sold when Lana said "Burpin' Burger". However, just before they head off, Lisa points out that the snow is falling down at a faster rate than usual.

At the Burpin' Burger, Bobbie Fletcher arrives, and says that in order to win the competition, they need to find a hamburger wrapper decorated with skidmarks. Bobbie starts the competition, and the crowd quickly rushes in. Flip, claiming to be a huge fan of Bobbie Fletcher, asks for a dozen burgers, wanting the winning wrapper so he can sell it for a huge stash of cash. Luckily, he doesn't succeed in getting the wrapper, prompting to return later. The Loud kids get their burgers with a kids eat free coupon, but are unsuccessful in getting the winning wrapper. Lana, not wanting to give up so easy, encourages her siblings to go for seconds. Lana has Hops take the kids eat free coupon from the cashier, and successfully get another round of burgers, once again, unsuccessfully getting the winning wrapper. Still not wanting to give up, Lana attempts to grab the kids eat free coupon again, but the cashier catches her, and rips the coupon. Realizing that she has to pay for their burgers now, Lana looks around, and manages to find enough money for yet another round of burgers. When it appears as if they aren't going to succeed again, Leni ends up finding the winning wrapper, much to an overjoyed Lana.

The siblings are prepared to leave, when suddenly, they're revealed to be snowed in, just as Lisa feared. Just when the siblings fear on how to get out, Flip arrives, using his vehicle to rescue trapped individuals in the snow. The siblings request Flip to get them out, but he'll only do it on the condition that they give him the winning wrapper. Lana refuses to give it up, and Flip instead escorts the cashier out. The siblings attempt to leave by using the path Flip cleared out, but Flip accidentally backs his vehicle into the building, encasing the building in snow once again. Lana, keeping a stiff upper lip, attempts to dig through the snow to find Vanzilla, and succeeds. However, the vehicle wouldn't start up, due to the engine freezing over. Lana attempts to fix the engine, while the remaining siblings sit in the restaurant, freezing. Hops, taking note of how much the kids are suffering, shows Lana what her actions have caused, and Lana realizes that her blind ambition to win the contest has put the safety of her siblings in danger, and heads off.

Sometime later, Flip arrives, since Lana asked him for help. Lana sacrifices the winning wrapper, but she admits that she would rather care for her siblings' safety more than a silly competition. As Flip drives the Loud kids through the thick snow, they pass by Bobbie Fletcher, since her racecar's engine died out. Lana steps in to fix the engine, and Bobbie, amazed at Lana's skill, gives Lana her number so she can be a crew member (in twelve years), resulting in the siblings cheering for her. Flip, stating that he's responsible for bringing Lana to her, asks Bobbie for a reward, and she simply buries him in snow as she zooms off.

    • Luan also says it when she tells the employee they won't be leaving.
  • This episode, along with its sister episode, "Snow Way Down", are the first two (and so far only) episodes of the show to air in December, as there haven't been any episodes that premiered in that month before.
    • They are also the second pair of episode segments where the titles of them sound similar to each other, with the first was "Read Aloud"/"Not a Loud".

  • This is the second episode where Lily is not seen in her normal outfit, with the first being in "The Loudest Yard".

  • On TV airings, this episode comes before its sister episode, "Snow Way Down".

  • Moral: Look over your loved ones more than your personal needs.

References

  • Dale Earnhardt, Jr. - Bobbie Fletcher's race car number "88" is the same as this NASCAR driver.
    • Coincidentally, the voice actress of Bobbie, Karsyn Elledge, is the niece of Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - In this episode, Lana needs to find a Golden hamburger wrapper with tire marks in order to become a member of Bobbie Fletcher's crew. This is similar to the 1964 children's novel where an 11-year old boy named Charlie Bucket, along with 4 other children, had to find the Golden Ticket to win a tour to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.
  • Danica Patrick - Bobbie Fletcher is primarily based on this famous NASCAR driver.

Errors

  • One of Bobbie Fletcher's eyelashes is disconnected from her eyes in one shot.
  • Due to frogs being cold blooded, realistically, Hops would have died being in the snow.
  • In the end credits, Flip's voice actor, John DiMaggio, is misspelled as John DeMaggio, making this the third time this mistake has happened. The first two instances were in the end credits for "A Tattler's Tale" and "Snow Bored".
