Episode Information

"Anti-Social" is the forty-seventh episode of the second season and the ninety-ninth episode of The Loud House.


The kids try to convince Dad of the wonders of modern technology after he declares war on their electronic devices.


Lynn Sr. arrives home, and greets his family. However, all of the family members have their faces glued to their phone screens. Realizing that his family is not listening to him, he opens the front door and slams it shut, catching everyone's attention. When Lynn Sr. says that they need to take their faces off their phones for at least a few moments, they deny, saying that their whole lives depend on their phones. Because of this, Lynn Sr. threatens to shut off the Internet supply if they don't comply with his demands. Fearing on losing their Internet, Lori suggests that they show Lynn Sr. the marvels of technology, and how it makes life more beneficial.

Sometime later, Lynn Sr. arrives back from the grocery store and goes through a list of chores for his kids to do. Lori steps in to help by sending them text messages to remind them. Lynn Sr., amazed that Lori was able to remind them so quickly, asks her if she can teach him how to text. Although the process is slow, Lynn Sr. manages to get texting down, but not entirely. Later, when Lynn Sr. needs to use the bathroom, the line ends up being long, and the twins propose that Lynn Sr. play a freemium type game, and Lynn Sr. becomes so invested with the game, he neglects using the restroom as he intended. Later, Lynn Sr. wants to upload an old photo of himself onto social media, but none of them seem good enough to his preferences. Leni comes in, and tells him about photo filters, which Lynn Sr. highly appreciates. Later, Lynn Sr. is in the garage, playing his cowbell with Kotaro playing a keyboard. When Lynn Sr. requests Luna and Luan to hang up flyers around town, they instead suggest that they live stream their concert, so that way, they can play their music without having to go anywhere. By now, Lynn Sr. is invested into all the wonders of technology, and when he texts his kids if they would like faster Internet as thanks for showing him how amazing technology is, the kids begin cheering with excitement.

Unfortunately, at this point, Lynn Sr. has become too attached to his devices, as he refuses to help out Lincoln with his social studies homework, uploads embarrassing images of Lori and Lincoln when they were younger, puts too much focus on live streaming his cooking, taking photos of dinner, and tossing said dinner out the window when he becomes dissatisfied with how it looks. The next day, the family arrives home, but when Lynn Sr. doesn't say hi to them due to his attachment to his devices, Lori slams the front door to get his attention. When the siblings want their father to take a break from his devices, he barks at them like a dog, not wanting to give up his devices.

Proof that you don't need technology to have fun.

The siblings hold a meeting and realize that Lynn Sr. has become them earlier. They also realize that the only way to fully get his attention is to cut off the Internet. The moment the siblings do so, Lynn Sr. runs up to Lori and Leni's room, saying that he feels weak without the Internet. When the siblings reveal that he has become like them, Lynn Sr. apologizes and promises to spend more time with them. To help him, the siblings proceed to shut off their devices, and do fun activities together, such as playing chess with Lincoln, jam out with Luna, do laundry with Lori, playing with Lucy's tarot cards, play blocks with Lily, build a model molecule with Lisa, play hockey with Lynn, play duck, duck, goose with Lola and Lana, and juggling with Luan. With Lynn Sr. now happy without the use of modern technology, Lisa suggests that they turn the Internet back on, but Lori insists they can wait another day. As the siblings request to be with their father, Lynn Sr. insists that they can do all of their requests together.


Mr. Grouse has no lines in this episode.

Sock innuendo.

  • Innuendo:
    • The promotional code Mr. Grouse was using on a socks website was "SOCKIT2ME" (sock it to me).
    • The picture Lynn Sr. posted of young Lincoln being potty trained had hashtags saying "#PottyChamp" and "#LinkyMadeAStinky".
  • Irony: Everybody ignored Lynn Sr. in the beginning, only for him to ignore them later on.


  • Anti-Social - The title means to lack any consideration for the well-being of others.
  • Duran Duran - Luna's line, "Dudes, I'm hungry like the wolf," quotes this band's song "Hungry Like the Wolf."
  • Britney Spears - Luna's line to Lynn Sr., "Oops, you did it again," quotes this pop singer's song "Oops!... I Did It Again."
  • The Clash - The picture Luan and Luna used for The Clang's webpage is a takeoff of this group's album London Calling.
    • Furthermore, The Clang is a reference to the group.
  • Friends - When Lynn Sr. is looking at his "gym-bod" selfie, he asks, "How you doin'?" which is Joey Tribbiani's, a character from this NBC sitcom, pick-up line.
  • Instagram - With its focus on sharing pictures with others, SwiftyPic seems to reference this service.


  • Plot hole: This episode seems to imply that Lynn Sr. is completely clueless on how technology is used, even though his former occupation was an IT, which requires some knowledge on how the technology works.
  • During the scene when Lori is showing Lynn Sr. how to text, Lori's eyelashes are missing.
  • In the scene where the Loud kids are celebrating their father giving them faster internet, Lisa's hand is shown on her roommate's tongue, having gone through the back of Lily's head.
  • When the twins hold hands and bow at their siblings, Lola is missing her right arm.
