The elementary school is getting prepared for an upcoming Valentine's Day-themed dance. Clyde is part of the planning committee, as he is preparing the desserts. While he's in the committee, he is revealed to have a crush on fellow member Emma. Clyde's friends immediately note that Clyde has a crush on Emma, and Clyde expresses some concern that he needs to be 100% certain that Emma likes her back. This makes Clyde's friends remark that they can help out, and give him some information:
Rusty says that if a girl can smell cologne off someone, then she likes him. Rusty promptly sprays some cologne onto Clyde, and Emma immediately takes note of the smell and likes it.
Liam says that a girl will like a boy if they offer her a seat next to them. Luckily, the only seat available is next to Clyde and he promptly offers it to Emma.
At the public library, Lincoln states that if a girl lends a fancy pen to a boy, then she likes him.
The final test Clyde takes is by having Stella read tea leaves, and Stella discovers that Clyde will be dancing with a brown-haired girl while, for some reason, wearing a chef's outfit.
Confident that Emma likes him, Clyde decides to make a grand entrance in the cafeteria by having Liam and Rusty dressed as cupids, and Zach, Stella, and Lincoln pulling Clyde in a gondola, inspired by one of his favorite movies. Arriving at the table Emma is sitting at, Clyde asks Emma out to the dance, but Emma, initially touched, awkwardly states that she just wants to be friends with Clyde. This causes Clyde to faint and his friends to quickly escort him out of the cafeteria.
When the school day ends, Clyde is picked up by Howard and Harold and quickly requests to drive him home. Clyde explains that he made a complete embarrassment out of himself and proclaims he's never coming back to school. As a result, Clyde ends up completely depressed. While sulking in his room, Clyde receives a text from his friends from how much fun they're having and gets a call from Cheryl, who informs him that the bakery sent them the wrong cake, which is for a baby shower, and requests his help in fixing it up.
Donning a baker's outfit, Clyde arrives at the party and quickly fixes the cake up to make it Valentine's Day themed. After fixing it up, he attempts to leave but runs into Chloe, one of the other members of the party planning committee who recognizes him. The two share some laughs and discover that they both love Dessert Storm. As a result, Clyde asks her if she would like to dance at the party, and Chloe gladly accepts, resulting in Clyde and Chloe having a fun time dancing together while his friends cheer him on.
This is last episode storyboarded by Jordan Rosato.
Stella's vision of Clyde dancing with a brown-haired girl is technically correct, because despite being rejected by Emma, Clyde managed to get a dance with Chloe, who also has brown hair.
One major hint that foreshadows that Emma is not the girl Clyde gets to dance with at the party is that Stella's vision has him wearing a chef's outfit. Clyde wasn't wearing a chef's outfit while asking Emma, but was wearing one when he ran into Chloe during the party.
This episode reveals that one of Clyde's favorite movies is titled Il Ballo Finale, which is Italian for The Final Dance.
Lincoln appears on the title card as the design on the heart-shaped chocolate box.
Yoko Ono - One of Liam's chickens is named Yolko Ono, referencing John Lennon's widow.
Floss - When Clyde and Chloe are dancing, Richie can be seen doing this iconic dance move.
Some of Lynn's row team from "Spell It Out," like the girl with black-purple hair and the blond girl that resembles Ronnie Anne, are seen at the elementary school.
When receiving texts for missing out on the dance, Clyde is lying on top of his bed with the lights off, but when Harold steps into the room with Cheryl on the phone for him, the lights are on, and he's lying on the floor.
The kids behind Stella and Rusty only have their heads and are missing their bodies.
Possible: When Emma and Chloe both notice Clyde and his friends entering the cafeteria, Chloe is seen with oval eyes instead of slanted eyes, though this could be a surprised reaction.
