Lori is waiting for Bobby to show up for their date, and is anxious to be with him. When Bobby shows up, he says they are going to a monster truck rally but Lori says it isn't romantic, and suggests Lincoln goes in her place. Neither is too fond of the idea at the start, saying they won't have much to talk about, but when they return home, Lori is pleased to see them doing a bro handshake because they hit it off.
Lori then becomes a little angered when Bobby begins inviting Lincoln out on their dates, making her feel like a third wheel. She then gets enraged to hear that Bobby and Lincoln are enjoying themselves without her at the arcade. She heads down to the arcade ready to confront them, but decides not to after Bobby claims how happy he is hanging with Lincoln, and Lori gets ecstatic when she hears Bobby promising they'd ride the tunnel of love, only to get upset again after hearing Lincoln will be tagging along.
Lori is intent on taking Bobby back from Lincoln. Rather than take Leni's suggestion of hanging out with Ronnie Anne, Lori decides to do so by taking an unconscious Clyde to the fair as her date. Bobby is oblivious to the fact that Clyde is passed out, but after Lori pretend flirts with Clyde, he begins feeling jealous. Lincoln, not wanting to lose his bro, begins inviting Bobby to ride extreme rides, which successfully keeps him away from Lori.
Lori then prepares to ride the tunnel of love with Clyde, but Bobby is so caught up in riding a toilet themed ride that he doesn't really seem to care. Lori ends up talking with the unconscious Clyde, who falls into the stream. Clyde is sent to an emergency medical tent, while Lori is sobbing uncontrollably because she has lost Bobby forever. Lincoln feels bad and gives up his bro time with Bobby for Lori's sake, claiming he still has Clyde as a bro, but Clyde is in the tunnel of love. Later on, Lori is grateful to Lincoln for his kind gesture, and says that "he's the greatest bro." Back at the Loud house, Lucy shows pictures of Lori to Clyde, and the latter ends up passing out after seeing pictures of him on a date with Lori, as Lincoln makes a joke about it, and he, Lucy, and Bobby laugh at it.
Howard and Harold are indirectly mentioned when the carnival manager asks to see Clyde's parents over the loudspeaker.
