Thinking it looks like fun, the other kids try to get in on Lola's home-schooling.
Lori reminds her siblings that they need to get ready for school. As the siblings wait for Luna to finish up showering, Lola is shown to be the only one not getting ready. It turns out that Lola is being home-schooled since it's pageant season, and that she needs more time to practice. The siblings are complaining about the fact that they have busy schedules as well, yet they still have to go to regular school. Lincoln, in the form of a presentation, is seeking permission from Rita and Lynn Sr. if they can be home-schooled. They agree, but on one condition: they need to get their work done, or else they'll be forced to go back to regular school.
Now that they're home-schooled, the siblings are free to do whatever they want all day. However, Lola keeps reminding her siblings that they need to work on their assignments soon. The siblings attempt to get some work done, but they can't get through the first page of their workbook without getting distracted. At night, the siblings are getting themselves ready for bed. Suddenly, Lola reveals that there's going to be a test tomorrow, stating that when someone is home-schooled, they're required to take a test every Friday to make sure they studied. To make matters worse, Lola warns them that if they fail, they're forced to go back to regular school.
In Lori and Leni's room, the siblings are panicking, since they made no effort in studying. Lisa's initially not worried, but to her discovery, her test will involve an arts and crafts project, which she is not good at (due to stubby fingers). Lincoln insists that they pull an all-nighter to study, and everyone proposes to do it in Lisa's underground bunker. Upon entering, the siblings are irritated at the distractions they cause. Realizing that studying by themselves isn't the best solution, Lincoln insists that they ask Lola for help, despite the fact that she needs eight hours of sleep, or else she won't function. Despite that, they decide to ask Lola for help, and Lola reluctantly agrees. The next day, the siblings take their tests, and they all end up passing, except for Lola, whose lack of sleep resulted in her leaving her test unfinished. As a result, Lola is forced to go back to regular school the upcoming Monday. This leaves the remaining siblings feeling bad for Lola.
On Monday, as Lola gets up to get ready for school, the remaining siblings are shown to be waiting in line for the bathroom. Lola is confused as to why her siblings are up so early, and they explain that they're going back to regular school because they admit that they were responsible for her failing her test, and are going back just so they won't interfere anymore. They also told their parents what happened, and they agreed to give her a second chance. Happy with their sacrifice, Lola hugs them, when suddenly, the siblings hear a school bus outside. Quickly rushing outside, the siblings discover that Mr. Grouse bought another CD, this time with vintage school bus sounds, much to their annoyance.
In addition, this was the first episode of Season 3 to be confirmed. This was due to the show still being on its second season when this episode was confirmed.
The story of the episode is similar to "Yes Man". In both episodes Lincoln uses his skills to convince his parents to let give his sister benefits. Lincoln and Lola seem to be most prepared, so their siblings ask for advice. The advices work for them, ironically both Lola and Lincoln fail in their episodes. Also in the end the siblings make up with them for causing them to fail.
This episode reveals that Lola is homeschooled during pageant season.
Each of the books on the title card corresponds to one of the Loud kids, because of their theme colors. From top to bottom, light blue is Lori, purple is Luna, red is Lynn, yellow is Luan, and orange is Lincoln.
Leni is Lincoln's only older sister to not have a color-themed book.
This is the last episode solo-directed by Chris Savino.
TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS @DylanCartoonell
Replying to @littlekev811 @RoyalLouds Actually No Place Like Homeschool had a multi-arm rat in it. The set up was somebody saying "Guess who has 18 thumbs and is Homeschooled?" Lisa assumed they meant her lab rat. It was in the storyboards anyway, I assume they cut it for time. Dec 8, 2018
According to former Nickelodeon intern Dylan Carbonell, there was a scene that involved a multi-armed rat squirming on Leni's head. The set up was somebody saying "Guess who has 18 thumbs and is Homeschooled?", and Lisa assumed they meant her lab rat. The scene was most likely removed due to time constraints.
The fact that Leni was freaking out seems to be a callback to "A Tattler's Tale", where she was also shown to be murophobic.
Achilles' heel - According to Lisa, arts and crafts is her "Achilles' heel". Achilles' heel is a metaphor meaning a sign of weakness/vulnerability. It comes from the Greek Myth of Achilles, who could only be hurt in one heel due to his mother dipping him in the River Styx.
In some scenes, Leni is missing her right eyelashes when her eyes are open while she's wearing her night attire.
When the Loud siblings look out the window, a red sleeve appears to cover Lynn’s arm, even though the sleeves of her pajamas are quite different, being short and having a base color of white.
When the sisters push Lincoln into Lola's room, the sleeves of Luna's nightshirt are long, even though they're usually short.
When Lola learns that she has been given a second chance at being homeschooled, she's wearing her pink gloves. But when she engages in a group hug, she's not wearing them anymore.
Lola was sleep-deprived from missing out on several hours of sleep, but her siblings didn't sleep at all that night and they didn't become sleep-deprived.
