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.
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 to the dance, but Emma simply 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 they received the wrong cake, which is for a baby shower. Donning a chef'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. 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 it. As a result, Clyde and Chloe end up having a fun time dancing together while his friends cheer him on.
