"Home of the Fave" is the forty-second episode of the third season, and the one-hundred-forty-third episode of The Loud House.

Plot

After a pun-filled trip to the grocery store with Luan and Lola, Dad worries Lola thinks he plays favorites.

Synopsis

Lynn Sr. tells his kids that he's heading off to the grocery store, and asks if any of them want to come along. Luan and Lola decide to go (Luan needs more bananas and eggs for pranks, and Lola needs more macaroni for a necklace). Throughout the entire trip, Luan and Lynn Sr. exchange jokes in a continuous flow, and Lola gets more and more annoyed at the two bonding. When they arrive back home, Lynn Sr. takes note on how agitated Lola looks, and fears that Lola thinks he is playing favorites. When Lynn Sr. explains this story to his wife, Rita assures him that he can resolve things.

Later, as Lola gets to work on her macaroni necklace, Lynn Sr. reveals that he bought two princess dresses, one pink and one light green. Lola, seeing that Lynn Sr. bought her a dress of the color she loves, plus stick-on earrings, hugs her dad in gratitude, and proceeds to spend her whole day with Lynn Sr., partaking in many of her favorite things, while Lynn Sr. goes along to make Lola feel included. After a whole day of spending time together, Lynn arrives, and tells her father that he was supposed to meet her so they can work out together. Seeing Lynn upset, Lynn Sr. begins to fear that he now picks Lola over her. Before long, Lynn Sr. begins spending time with the kids, trying not to make all of them feel left out. Feeling that he satisfied everyone, Lynn Sr. believes that he accomplished his task.

As he makes dinner, Luan arrives and takes note how he's making beef stroganoff, which is her favorite food. Fearing that if he makes stroganoff, everyone will believe that he picks Luan over everyone else, so he proceeds to make everyone's favorite dinner instead, and decides to sit in a corner to avoid sitting next to anybody else. Eventually, Lynn Sr. becomes so stressed out at trying to make the kids feel equal, that he runs out of the house screaming. As Lynn Sr. lays on top Charles' doghouse, the kids ask him what the problem is, and Lynn Sr. says that he was acting strange because he feared that they were assuming that he was playing favorites. However, the kids state that they never believed that he was playing favorites, and explain that the reason they were upset was because of a personal issue. Realizing that his constant worrying was meaningless, Lynn Sr. hugs his kids, knowing that he loves all of them equally.
