Episode Information

"Everybody Loves Leni" is the thirty-fifth episode of the third season, and the one-hundred-thirty-sixth episode of The Loud House.

Plot

Torn between her work friends and her school friends, Leni tries to bring everyone together.

Synopsis

At Reininger's, Leni is informed by her co-workers, Fiona and Miguel, that their work shift is done. As the three eat pretzels at the food court, Leni's school friends, Jackie and Mandee, arrive and remind Leni about their hangout tonight. However, tonight also happens to be the night Fiona needs a wing man for her date with a cafeteria employee. Despite Leni saying that she can work things out despite being overbooked, her friends simply tell her not to worry about it too much.

Later, Leni is hanging out with Jackie and Mandee at the former's house. However, every so often, Leni keeps getting calls from Fiona every time she needs more advice for her date. Eventually, Jackie and Mandee become suspicious of Leni's behavior, and she is soon caught talking to Fiona and Miguel. All four of Leni's friends decide to call it a night, thinking that Leni would prefer one side over the other.

At the Loud House, Leni sighs in defeat, and Lori asks what the problem is. When Leni explains that she wants to get her work friends and school friends to get along, Lincoln arrives and says that the best way to do that is by having them spend time together, since it worked out for him when he wanted Clyde, Liam, Zach, and Rusty to get along. Taking his advice, Leni invites Fiona, Miguel, Jackie, and Mandee for a party in the house's basement. Leni tries to make them get along with fact cards, but when tension rises between them when they speak out the facts, Leni tries to entertain them with a game of Froot Tangle. As they play, the four friends start to throw shade at each other, and it eventually boils up to the point where they decide to leave, as they can't stand each other.

The next day, Fiona and Miguel are at the clothing store for a big sale, but at the same time, Jackie and Mandee are there as well. Not wanting to deal with each other anymore, they decide to make Leni settle the dispute once and for all ("either them or us"), but they discover that she is not with any of them. Leni is revealed to be at home, sulkily watching TV while binging on pudding. Leni's phone rings, and she answers it. Her friends ask her where she is, and Leni says that she's staying home because she can't make them all happy without having to upset half of them, and her friends began to feel guilty on what they have done. Upon hanging up, Lincoln and Lori, who have overheard her conversation, tell Leni that she must march up to her friends and knock some sense into them. When Leni decides to do so, she opens the front door and discovers her friends standing there. She tries to tell her friends that enough is enough, but they tell her that they have decided to let bygones be bygones and get along for Leni's sake. Touched by her friends' act of remorse, Leni lets them watch TV alongside her, and the two pairs start to get along with each other for their newfound friendship.

Trivia

  • This episode has a similar premise to "In Tents Debate" and "Pasture Bedtime", as they all involve a character conflicted on choosing one thing over the other.
  • This episode reveals that after Clyde and Liam felt left out when Lincoln began hanging out with Rusty and Zach, Lincoln brought the two pairs together to make them get along.
  • There was a deleted scene where after Fiona and Miguel hung up after getting caught by Jackie and Mandee, Sebastian pees into the toilet, and Jackie berates him by saying that she and Mandee are in the same room. After he's done, he said "UP TOP!", expecting some high fives, but when he looks back at Leni, he says with hostility "Not you.", and leaves.[1] It is currently unknown why this scene was deleted.
  • Irony: Lori initially commends Lincoln for being mature after he suggests to Leni that she make her two pairs of friends hang out together so they can get along, but she immediately takes back what she said once Lincoln displays an act of immaturity by proclaiming that he's going to write his name on his newest pair of underwear.

Errors

  • In one scene in the mall, Leni's eyelashes were missing when she closed her eyes for a moment in excitement.
  • Throughout the scene where Leni is hanging out with her school friends and getting phone calls from her work friends, her purse, as well as the purse strap, keeps switching sides.
  • During the Froot Tangle scene, there are two sets of dice at one point.
  • After Leni says, "Guys wait, we didn't get to eat the 'new best friends' cake I baked.", the camera pans right to reveal the cake. But a wide shot shows that the cake was actually on the left side, not the right side.
  • When Leni is depressed and watches "Vest Friends Forever", it shows that she has eaten eight pudding cups. However, when Lincoln and Lori talk to Leni, there are nine pudding cups.
  • At the end of the episode, when Leni and all of her friends are hanging out with each other, Mandee's eye bags are missing.
