Plot

For Halloween, Lincoln and Clyde have scoped out a fancy neighborhood to make their dreams of scoring full-size candy bars a reality. Meanwhile, Lucy puts on a haunted maze, and the younger girls scheme to get maximum candy.

Synopsis

Act I

It's Halloween today, and the siblings, under Lucy's guidance, help prep up for the big day, because she finally gets the chance to set up her haunted corn maze. With everything set up, Lincoln gets a call from Clyde, saying to meet him at a rendezvous point in fifteen minutes. Later, Lincoln, going incognito mode, meets up with Clyde, and Lincoln explains to the viewers that he and Clyde have successfully located a place called Huntington Manor, where the people who live there give out full-size candy bars instead of tiny bite-sized ones. Just when the two begin to figure out how to sneak in without getting caught, two boys who look strikingly similar to Lincoln and Clyde, respectively named Alistair and Nigel, walk out, and leave. Realizing that they can pose as the two, Lincoln and Clyde try to sneak away, but they accidentally bump into Hank and Hawk (from "The Loudest Yard"). Clyde, scared of their hulking appearances, suffers a massive nosebleed, making the big kids nauseous. When Clyde stops his nosebleed, the big kids ask the boys where they can score the most candy, and Lincoln, not wanting to tell them about the full-size candies in Huntington Manor, instead tells them Franklin Ave. Falling for the trick, the big kids leave.

When sundown comes near, the younger sisters show off their costumes. Lana and Lola want to try to get maximum candy, so they decide to wear three costumes at once (Lana as Abraham Lincoln, a pepper shaker, and a pirate, and Lola as Lady Liberty, a saltshaker, and a mermaid). Lisa decides to go as a kangaroo, so she can have Lily as the joey, resulting in maximum cuteness. Lincoln and Clyde arrive, dressed up as Alistair and Nigel, instead of Ace Savvy and One-Eyed Jack. Lincoln and Clyde fib that they're Ace Savvy and One-Eyed Jack in disguise. Lana, Lola, and Lisa drag a spineless Lynn Sr. out of the house, since he's supposed to guide them. After exiting the house, the younger sisters and Lynn Sr. head off in one direction, while Lincoln and Clyde head the other direction. Moments later, Hank and Hawk arrive, donning baby masks. At the same time, Lucy orders her family to get into position in the maze.

Lincoln and Clyde arrive to Huntington Manor, and successfully manage to trick Wyatt, the gatekeeper, into letting them in. Once in, they strip off their disguises, and begin trick-or-treating. Meanwhile, the younger sisters begin trick-or-treating. At one house, Lana and Lola manage to get six pieces of candy by using their alternative costumes. Lisa and Lily manage to get over 70 pieces of candy with their kangaroo and joey costume. Sometime later, Lincoln and Clyde, with their sacks full of full-size candy bars, begin heading home, but need to figure out where to put it. They decide to bury it, because if it's brought to the Loud House, the sisters will eat through it all, but if it's brought to the McBride House, Howard and Harold will lock the candy up, and only bring it out one small piece at a time. After burying it, Lincoln and Clyde arrive back to Franklin Avenue, but to their horror, pieces of pumpkin and candy wrappers litter the ground, and all the trees and lampposts are coated in toilet paper, leaving the whole street completely desolate.

Act II

Lincoln and Clyde arrive to the Loud House, and discover the family taking down their corn maze, saying that nobody came after two big kids ran rampant, causing chaos and stealing everyone's candy. Realizing that the hooligans that caused this were the big kids they fooled earlier, Lincoln and Clyde begin to devise a plan on getting the candy back.

Lincoln and Clyde find a trail of candy wrappers, and manage to track Hank and Hawk to a treehouse in the middle of the woods. While trying to figure out how to get in, the bullies, having eaten too much candy, pass out. Seizing this opportunity, Lincoln and Clyde sneak in and try to get the bag of candy back. Unfortunately, Hank and Hawk catch them, and pummel them. After Hank and Hawk leave the boys in the dumpster, Lincoln and Clyde realize that they can get back at the bullies with blood because of how nauseous they got during their first encounter. Lincoln calls up Lucy, and tells her to get her maze ready.

Lincoln and Clyde don their British costumes, and fill up a couple of bags with leaves to fake that they have bag loads of candy. The two pass by the bullies' treehouse, and attempt to lure them out by saying that they've got lots of candy, and milk chocolate (which Hank and Hawk like most). Hank and Hawk begin to chase them down, and successfully trick them into entering the maze at the Loud House. Once inside the maze, Luna begins to sing a song that goes along with the maze, as well as the remaining family members terrifying the big kids, up to the point where their screams catch the attention of the kids on Franklin Avenue. Upon arriving to the exit of the maze, Lucy dumps a bucket of fake blood onto Hank and Hawk, grossing them out, and declaring that they're never coming back to Franklin Ave. again.

S2E24 Happy Halloween

Best Halloween ever.

Happy with how the maze scared the big kids, the kids line up so they can go through the maze. Realizing that nobody got candy, Lincoln and Clyde decide to dig up their bags of full-size candy bars, and proceed to give them to the trick-or-treaters (and promise to take his younger sisters to Huntington Manor next year), saying that it's better to give than to receive. When Lincoln and Clyde declare their Halloween a success by eating half of their last candy bar, Lynn Sr., who fell unconscious, wakes up, relieved that Halloween is finally over, but when Geo arrives, still piloting Marie Antoinette's severed head, Lynn Sr., scared out of his wits again, screams "I HATE HALLOWEEN!!" one last time.

  • This marks the series' first Halloween episode.
  • This is the series' third full length episode, after "11 Louds a Leapin'", and "The Loudest Mission: Relative Chaos".

  • This episode shows that Lincoln and Rita can tell when Lucy's happy or excited when no one else can.

S2E24 Human pretzel

Looks like Hank and Hawk beat Lori to it.

  • In "Get the Message", Lori threatened Lincoln into turning him into a human pretzel. In this episode, Hank and Hawk actually turned Lincoln and Clyde into literal human pretzels.
  • This is the third time Lana is called cute and was fine with it. The first time was in "Patching Things Up", and the second time was in "Yes Man".

  • The music during the end credits was also used for the title card in "Back in Black".

  • Irony: Lana and Lola's alternative costumes managed to fool everyone, except for Lincoln and Clyde.
  • Karma:
    • Lincoln and Clyde fooled Hank and Hawk into trick-or-treating on their street, which resulted in everyone's Halloween getting ruined.
    • In the "The Loudest Yard", Hank and Hawk sprain Lynn's ankle. In this episode, she gets her revenge by scaring and humiliating both of them in the corn maze. This is also their punishment for stealing candy, ruining Halloween, and beating up Lincoln and Clyde.
  • Moral: It's better to give than to receive.
    • This is the second episode to present this moral, with the first being "11 Louds a Leapin'".
      • Coincidentally, they're both full-length episodes and holiday specials.
  • Timeline:
    • After "Spell It Out", because all of the siblings support Lucy's idea for Halloween, and nobody walks all over her.
    • After "The Price of Admission", because Lynn Sr. and Rita were putting up decorations for Halloween.
    • Before "11 Louds a Leapin'", because Christmas is after Halloween (and Thanksgiving in Canada and America).
