Episode Information

"Undie Pressure" is the fourteenth episode of The Loud House.

Plot

The Loud siblings make a bet to see who can go the longest without displaying their most annoying traits and habits.

Synopsis

The Loud children are inside the house on a rainy day doing different things, and Lola is repulsed by Lincoln reading his comic book in his underwear, calling it an annoying habit, but Lincoln is quick to point out that she and the other girls have annoying habits of their own. This gives Lola the idea to call a bet to see who can go the longest without their habits, and If Lincoln loses, he can't ever read in his underwear again, but if the girls lose, they have to buy Lincoln a new pair of underwear he wants to buy. This means that Lincoln can't read comics in his underwear, Lori can't talk to Bobby, Leni can't say "like", Luna can't speak in a British accent, Luan can't tell bad jokes, Lynn can't make everything into a sport, Lucy can't suddenly appear and spook everybody, Lana can't play in the mud, Lola can't look in her hand mirror, Lisa can't do her poop study, and Lily can't cry.

Leni is the first to lose, as she says "like" after only a second, followed by Lucy when she suddenly appears. As Lola tries to get the girls to stay focused, Lynn is the next to lose, as she can't resist folding laundry and not imagine socks as basketballs. And while Lincoln gets uncomfortable reading fully-clothed, he decides to change his pants and starts to wear Lori's leggings, only to realize that "they really ride up on ya". Luna is tempted to break the bet when she tries to win Mick Swagger tickets over the radio by doing her British accent; she tries whispering into her cellphone, away from her sisters, but she then shouts into it when the announcer can't hear her, causing her to lose.

When Bobby arrives at the house wondering why Lori won't answer his calls, Lola tries to keep Lori from speaking to him, but Lori breaks and lets him in, causing Lana to rush outside into the mud, Lori to congratulate Bobby on their six-week dating anniversary, and Luan to make punchlines out of Lincoln's question for Bobby's lateness. All three lose as a consequence. After Lori goes upstairs to the bathroom (thanks to Bobby giving her the very same milkshake from their first date), Lisa breaks her end of the bet by following her to further her poop study.

With Lincoln and Lola apparently the only two left, Lola tries to make Lincoln, who is now wearing sweatpants, lose by turning up the thermostat to get him to take off the pants. Lincoln sees through her ploy, and he tries to get Lola to lose by cleaning every shiny surface in the living room to get her to see her reflection. Lincoln finally gets Lola to look in a mirror by tempting her to see what she looks like in her uneven makeup; she looks at her reflection in a doorknob, and she immediately bolts upstairs to fix herself, losing her part of the bet. Believing he's won, Lincoln rips off his pants and gloats that he'll now be getting his "victory undies". However, he soon realizes after that he forgot about Lily, and that she hasn't cried once, Lily is declared the winner, and Lincoln can't read in his undies again.

S1E07B siblings back to the way it was

All the siblings do their habits.

Later, Lola is enjoying herself with her mirror when she sees Lincoln, uncomfortable and miserable reading in his clothes, and she takes pity on him. The next day, Lincoln gets a package in the mail: his victory undies. Lola explains that she bought them for him, saying it's unfair for him to be unable to indulge in his annoying habits while she and the others can indulge in theirs. Lincoln is touched by her generous act, and he proceeds to enjoy his comic in his new undies along with his sisters doing their antics. Outside, Bobby is chasing a chicken in the rain to ask about crossing the road.

Errors

  • The end credits for this episode, credit Brian Stepanek as the voice of Dad, despite the character not appearing. Carlos PenaVega is not credited for voicing Bobby.

  • In one scene, Luan was taller than Luna.
  • When Luna tries to win the radio station contest with her British accent, the camera is placed so it looks like the curtain is behind Luna, but when Lincoln and her sisters catch her in the act, the window is behind her, and the curtain is in front of her.
  • The bet was that Lincoln could not read comics with only his underwear on, but when he got eliminated he still had his shirt on, so he technically shouldn't have been eliminated yet.
    • In addition, he wasn't reading comics, either.
    • Therefore, both Lincoln and Lily should've won.
    • However, he got the prize that he wanted.
  • In some scenes, Lola's sash is on the wrong side.
