While working in the mercado, Bobby gets a call from Lori, who informs him that tomorrow is their "pizza-versary" date, which is the anniversary of when they ate pizza together for the first time at Gus' Games and Grub. The moment they hang up, Hector enters and Bobby asks if he can cover for him tomorrow. Hector says that he can't, as he's attending a convention, but says that there's enough family members to watch over the mercado for him. At that moment, Ronnie Anne, Carl and CJ enter and Hector asks if they can run the mercado while Bobby is out and they agree, much to Bobby's distress, since he doesn't believe they're responsible enough to do it.
The next day, Bobby attempts to give Ronnie Anne, Carl and CJ instructions on how to run the mercado, but they quickly throw him out of the building by saying that they can take care of the place just fine and that he shouldn't be too worried. As Bobby drives to Royal Woods, he quickly calls Ronnie Anne to give more instructions, but not wanting him to get more worried, Ronnie Anne promptly hangs up. In a state of panic, he pulls up a security camera and when he sees several rules being broken like Maybelle eating grapes and Carl stealing candy from the jar, he quickly calls them and Ronnie Anne, Carl and CJ realize that Bobby is spying on them with a security camera, so they immediately cut him off so he won't interfere anymore. Bobby arrives at the Loud House, picks up Lori and quickly heads back to Great Lakes City with great haste, with Bobby covering it by saying that there's a better pizza restaurant in the city.
Arriving to Amores Pizza, Bobby drops Lori off and he attempts to find a parking spot, when in actuality, he heads back to the mercado to complain with Ronnie Anne about how she, Carl and CJ are running the store. Seeing how picky Bobby is acting, Ronnie Anne, Carl and CJ decide to quit, making Bobby's dilemma even worse for him. Realizing he still has a date with Lori, he attempts to juggle between eating pizza with Lori and running the mercado. Eventually, Lori gets so fed up from Bobby excusing himself that she eventually catches him running the store. Bobby attempts to apologize, and Lori explains to him that his family cares about the mercado, it's just that everyone has their own method of how they run the place. Realizing that he has a hard time letting things go, Bobby makes it up to Ronnie Anne, Carl and CJ by letting them run the store their own way. The three forgive Bobby, but Ronnie Anne questions where he's going to take Lori now, since the pizza restaurant is closed. Bobby says that he has an idea.
Sometime later, Lori and Bobby end up having their pizza-versary on the rooftop of the apartment building.
