Episode Information

"Coupe Dreams" is the fiftieth episode of the fourth season, the one-hundred-ninety-ninth episode and the fourth-season finale of The Loud House.

Plot

In order to buy her dream car, Lori becomes a local rideshare driver.

Synopsis

At a car dealership, Lori, Leni, Rita and Lynn Sr. are looking around for a car Lori can have on her own so she can go to Fairway University. As Rita comforts an emotional Lynn Sr., Lori and Leni spot a sleek car that is spacious, has a good display with lines of lights, and a retractable sunroof. Rita and Lynn Sr. are put off by the car's high price, but Lori is determined to make this her dream car, and proclaims that she will get the money to pay for it.

Arriving back home, Leni suggests to Lori naming the car "Lydia" and Mr. Grouse, overhearing the two talking about getting a new car, suggests that they buy his old car. Lori politely denies the offer, saying she has plans to get a new one. She explains that she'll just take on a second job.

Sometime later, Lori reveals that she is now a local rideshare driver for Royal Rides. After showing her siblings the GPS that'll keep track of how much she she makes, she gets her first customer and heads off. Arriving to the mall, Lori picks up Scoots, who has a pudding machine (which she clearly stole, as they soon get chased by police officers). Throughout the day, Lori picks up more customers, like Luan and her clown friends, the Morticians Club, and Liam, his meewaw and some of their animals. Arriving back home, Leni asks Lori how much money she made, and Lori discovers, to her disappointment, that she only made $30, since the service takes a chunk of her earnings. Upon seeing a driver pass by in her dream car, Lori becomes more determined to make the money, and decides that she'll just take on more jobs.

Later, Lori reveals that she's now a rideshare driver, food deliverer, and mobile babysitter. Upon being informed that she has a food delivery, Lori heads off. What follows afterwards is Lori trying to balance all three jobs at once with chaotic results.

  • After getting the food from Burpin' Burger, she she's informed that some parents want her to babysit their kids. However, the customers turn out to be Mr. and Mrs. Fox, whose kids run rampant in the vehicle, and beat up Lynn, Margo, Maya and Paula, who are being dropped off to a big game.
  • Lori is informed that she has a pizza delivery from Gus' Games and Grub, and the customer is upset to learn that most of the boxes of pizza he ordered have many of their slices missing (because of the Fox kids).
  • At the junkyard, Lori picks up Flip, who also needs her to carry his pile of junk he found. However, not long after driving, a bump causes most of the items to spill out, prompting Flip to tell Lori that she had just lost a tip from him.
  • Lori soon starts up a fourth job: doing mobile mani-pedis. After doing Mrs. Gurdle's nails in a van packed with customers and food, the cosmetics end up spilling over from the vehicle in motion.
  • Lori eventually becomes so overworked with all the jobs, she ends up getting her deliveries mixed up, like giving Cheryl a baby instead of her food (which she quickly fixes), dropping some punk kids at a mother's house, and dropping the mother's kids at a punk nightclub (where the bouncer humorously lets them in when they use a lollipop for ID).

When the day ends, Lori sadly announces to Leni that she was fired from every one of her jobs because of her incompetence. She also states that from all of that hard work, she only succeeded in making $500. When Lori accepts that she'll never get her dream car, she suddenly gets an idea. She and Leni go up to Mr. Grouse and ask if she can have his old car, and Mr. Grouse accepts. When he reveals it (as well as Leni suggesting they call it "Eliza"), Lori accepts the offer, and Lana offers to fix it for her. Mr. Grouse says the car can be hers for $750, but when Lori says that she's $250 short, Mr. Grouse comes up with a compromise to make up for the short amount.

Later, Lori takes the car for a drive with Mr. Grouse in the backseat, who has her be his own personal driver. Despite Mr. Grouse's complaints and list of locations he wants to go, Lori assures herself that it's only until the end of summer that the car will fully be hers.
