|This article is about the Season 2 episode. For the Season 4 episode, see Present Tense.|
It's a normal day at the Loud House, and the siblings are outside, just doing their favorite hobbies. As Rita and Lynn Sr. pull out dandelions growing out of their garden, they, along with their kids, witness a new family arriving into the neighborhood, and moving into a house close to theirs, which was previously owned by the Crowleys. The parents decide to hold off on weeding so they can welcome their new neighbors to the neighborhood. Later, the parents arrive at the house of their new neighbors, and the neighbors introduce themselves as Bumper and Jancey Yates. The Yates let the Loud parents into their house, where the Yates' children introduce themselves one by one (consisting of tech-savvy Beatrix, mathematician Bumper Jr., musically enriched Belle, and Korean-speaking Beau). As they introduce themselves, Rita and Lynn Sr. are amazed at how sophisticated the Yates children are, and the Yates parents explain that they like to make their children "well-rounded" so they can use their full potential, and state that if they don't use up all of their potential, they're failing. When Rita and Lynn Sr. leave, they immediately declare that they're failing their own children.
Sometime later, all the siblings are in the van, driving in parts of town that they've never seen before. One by one, each of the siblings are dropped off at a specific location by their parents as a means of making them more "well-rounded." Lynn is dropped off at a learning center to become more academic, Lisa is dropped off at an art studio to take a ceramics class in order to "embrace the arts," Lori, Leni, and Luna are dropped off at the community college (Lori and Leni to take SAT prep classes and Luna to brush up on her English), Luan is dropped off at City Hall to intern for the mayor to show that life isn't about laughs, Lucy is dropped off at a basketball court to play basketball so she can learn to cooperate with other people, Lola is dropped off at a soup kitchen to do volunteer work, and Lana is dropped off at a finishing school to learn about valuable social graces. With all of the sisters (minus Lily) dropped off, Lincoln fears on where he's going. The parents tell him that he's going home to read comics. Just when Lincoln begins to feel relieved that he doesn't get to go anywhere, the parents reveal that they actually want him to read educational comics that deal with real world things, such as lawmaking and temperatures. Later at night, the parents are happy at the fact that they're making their kids more "well-rounded."
The next day, as the reluctant siblings prepare another day of their "well-rounded" activities, the parents tell them that it's Saturday, and that they should go have fun, much to their happiness. As the siblings go on with their usual activities, Rita and Lynn Sr. notice the Yates family about to do volunteer work by planting trees. Out of fear, the Loud parents decide to make their kids do volunteer work as well by cleaning up on the interstate. After arriving back home, the parents force their kids into visiting the opera after Lynn Sr. tells them that he saw Bumper at the coffee shop, and said that they're taking their kids to the opera for "cultural enrichment." Once again, after arriving back home, the parents force their kids into registering people to vote when Rita bumped into Jancey, and said that they're raising money for school so it can keep them "civic-minded" (which is met with lukewarm response, as they get doors slammed on them for every house they visit). In the dead of night, the siblings decide to call it a day, and as Rita and Lynn Sr. watch TV, they witness the Yates family on the news, having saved an endangered turtle. Unhappy with this discovery, the parents tell their kids to wake up so they can go turtle saving.
The next day, after having fed their rather vicious turtle, the siblings arrive back. Lana has passed finishing class, Lynn got first place in the State Math Bowl, Lori and Leni's SAT scores went up, Lisa has created 13 whole plate settings, Lucy made the all-star team, Lincoln and Lola have cleaned the entire interstate from Royal Woods to Flint, Luna (now speaking clear English instead of slang) tutored new citizens in English, and Luan has managed to solve the city's parking crisis. Happy with their progress, Rita and Lynn Sr. decide to take their kids out for ice cream, but they deny, saying that it'll make them sluggish. When the parents ask if they want to go to the movies instead, they also deny that, asking how movies will make them move on in life. Realizing what they've turned their kids into, the parents tell them to come outside.
Outside, Rita and Lynn Sr. apologize to their kids for trying to make them more "well-rounded," and encourage them to be themselves, saying that they can deal with their futures later on in their lives. As the siblings proceed to have fun, the Yates arrive, and ask the Loud parents what they're doing. The Loud parents state that they're just "having fun." The Yates parents, not understanding what "fun" means, learn that from time to time, there has to be a moment where kids need to wind down. When the Yates parents allow their kids to have fun with the Loud kids (for only 7 minutes), they decide to watch TV with the Loud parents so they can let their children play contently.

Before The Loud House 's next episode bomb was even announced, this episode was accidentally released on Amazon Video on September 3, 2017, two weeks before its intended release date (September 18, 2017). According to Nick and More, a Twitter account that specializes on broadcasting information for children's TV channels, this was an error on Amazon's part. Beforehand, the Loud House bomb for September was set to be broadcast on the week of September 4 - September 7, but Nickelodeon pushed the bomb further down to September 18 - September 21. However, Amazon failed to get word of this update, and ended up releasing the episode on its original release date instead of its intended release date. On September 7, Amazon took the episode down, along with its sister episode, upon hearing word of the update.
