Episode Information

"Dine and Bash" is the fourteenth episode of the sixth season, and the two-hundred-sixtieth episode of The Loud House.

Plot

After failing to make Chef Guy Grazer a meal on his show, the kids try to erase the footage before it airs.

Synopsis

The Loud kids are being picked up from school by Todd. After all the kids are picked up, they're dropped off at Lynn's Table, where Lynn Sr. is relieved to see them, since it's rush hour at the restaurant. After several hours of the kids helping around the restaurant. Lynn Sr. gets a call from Kotaro informing him that the Doo Dads have just been booked for a wedding ceremony being held at Sunset Canyon. Lynn Sr. is excited about this opportunity but is disappointed in the fact that he has to work the dinner shift, since he allowed Grant to partake in a LARPing event with his friends. However, the kids state that they can work the restaurant while he's gone. Lynn Sr. approves of this and leaves, ready to get themselves ready for the ceremony.

The kids help with the afternoon rush.

After several hours of the working the restaurant, the kids are about to close up. Suddenly, famous TV chef Guy Grazer arrives, ready to film a new episode of his show Kitchen Ambush. Intimidated by his mere presence, the kids attempt to cater to his demands. However, the night suffers numerous bumps, like Guy being annoyed by the menu's heavy use of puns, being given more appetizers than necessary, being shocked at the fact that the restaurant is being run by kids, and the kids watching Guy seemingly unimpressed with the food they provided. After some picking at his meals, Guy and his crew leave, saying they've captured enough footage for the show. The moment they leave, the kids proclaim that the restaurant is done for should the episode air, but Lincoln realizes that if they can get the flash drive that contains their footage and destroy it, they could save the restaurant.

After Guy and his crew drive off in their van, Todd arrives with Vanzilla, the kids jump in start to chase after Guy. As Guy's van stops at an intersection, Lincoln says they need a way to distract Guy long enough so they can steal their footage. Lisa manages to distract Guy by calling him up and telling him that she got an anonymous tip about a food emergency at Jean Juan's. Falling for the trick, Guy orders his crew to drive over to Jean Juan's where, after he and the crew enter the restaurant, Lincoln, Leni, Lucy and Todd quickly jump into the unattended van to find the flash drive, but they couldn't find it in time, due to Guy realizing the tip was bogus.

Guy and his crew eventually arrive to the broadcast station, ready to air the new episode of Kitchen Ambush. Needing a way to stop the broadcast, Lincoln theorizes that they can stop it by taking out the antenna, and Lana manages to take it down by swinging a grappling hook at it and tying it to Vanzilla. However, the TVs behind them start to play the episode; Lisa realizes that the antenna they knocked down was a fake and was only up just for show. Remembering that broadcasts use satellites now, Lisa attempts to use her giant laser to take out the satellite that broadcasts Royal Woods, but despite her careful calculating, she is unsuccessful in hitting the correct satellite and instead takes out the satellites for Norway and Iceland. Realizing they have no hope of stopping the broadcast, the kids decide to give up and head home so they can apologize to their father.

The kids did handle Guy after all.

Arriving home, the kids discover that Lynn Sr. has already seen the episode. The kids profusely apologize to their father for ruining the restaurant by saying they couldn't handle Guy, but Lynn Sr. is confused, saying they actually did handle Guy. He rewinds the episode, where Guy explains that, despite the crazy antics of the Loud kids, he finds it admirable that they went through a lot of trouble just make their father proud and eagerly announces that he will return when the real chef (Lynn Sr.) will be back. As an emotionally moved Lynn Sr. tells his kids to bring it in, they hear Grant at the front door. Grant explains that he's quitting his job at Lynn's Table in order to focus on his "newfound wizard powers" (due to witnessing Lisa's laser going off and believing he did that). Suddenly, Lily grabs Lisa's tablet that controls the laser and accidentally fires it, causing a satellite to fall and crush Vanzilla. Grant, thinking he was responsible, apologizes by saying that he's "still working out the kinks."
