Episode Information

"Out of the Picture" is the twenty-fifth episode of the second season and the seventy-seventh episode of The Loud House.

Plot

Afraid they will be forgotten, Lincoln and Clyde want to make a splash in the yearbook and crash group photos.

Synopsis

Coach Pacowski is giving the students at school their yearbook photos. As Lincoln and Clyde examine their photos, Liam tells them the story that a boy he knows wasn't in many of the yearbook photos; he only had one little photo (which nobody looks at), and his name is Marty Malach. Because he wasn't in many photos, nobody knows him anymore, and now lives behind the barn on Liam's farm. This leaves Lincoln and Clyde scared, since they're not in many of the other photos, and believe that they'll be forgotten as well. At that moment, they see Lola, looking furious. It turns out that Coach Pacowski took a really bad photo of her, and she fears that if the photo were to be featured in the yearbook, her pageant career will be ruined.

Lincoln and Clyde proceed to crash in many of the club's group photos (Student Council, Chess Club, Morticians Club), but in the process, do something that ends up with them being obscured from the photo. Meanwhile, Lola tries asking her sisters to take her photo. She asks Leni to take the photo, but Leni claims that her phone can only take selfies. She tries to ask Luan to take her picture, but the camera she uses to take her photo was a gag prop. She asks Lisa to take her picture, but instead of taking a picture, Lisa took Lola's x-ray instead. As Lola begins to feel more distressed, she discovers that Lily took several photos of Lola. As she scrolls through the poorly shot photos, she discovers that one of them makes her look magnificent. Believing that this is the perfect photo, Lola lauds Lily in happiness.

As Lincoln and Clyde begin to feel worried at the possibilities of being forgotten, Lola appears, complaining that Coach Pacowski can't take her new photo, because he's overworked. Lincoln and Clyde realize that if they can join the yearbook staff, they can edit themselves into the photos. They approach the yearbook staff room, and as luck would have it, Coach Pacowski immediately hires them. As Lincoln and Clyde begin to decide on which photos to put themselves in, Lola appears. Seeing Lincoln and Clyde as members of the yearbook staff, she gives them a USB drive that contains her photo, and puts her trust in them in uploading it.

At the Loud House, as Lincoln and Clyde admire the photos they inserted themselves into (which are stored in a USB drive), Lola arrives, and hugs the two boys for helping her, while saying that if anything were to go wrong, her life's passion will be gone in an instant.

When Lincoln and Clyde arrive to the yearbook staff office to upload their altered photos, they discover that Coach Pacowski is already downloading the photos, since the yearbooks are supposed to be ready by tomorrow. Seeing how stressed Coach Pacowski looks, Clyde decides to give him a therapy session. Lincoln uses that time as a distraction to upload the altered photos. As Lincoln impatiently waits for the computer to upload all of the photos, Lincoln overhears Coach Pacowski explaining that he wanted to be an Irish line dancer instead of a coach, but due to some poor choices, Coach Pacowski never realized his dream. As Coach Pacowski quotes Lola's words, Lincoln realizes that saving Lola's pageant career and life's passion is more important than being noticed, so Lincoln decides to cancel the download and make some last minute altercations.

S2E14A I love you, Linky!

Lola thanks her brother for helping with her school photo.

Three weeks later, the yearbooks are being released, and as Clyde asks Lincoln if they'll be noticed, Lincoln tries to explain, but before he can do so, Lola arrives and gleefully shows them the photo of her in the yearbook. As Clyde looks through the yearbook, he is shocked to discover that none of the altered photos are in the yearbook. Lincoln explains that as the photos were being downloaded, he overheard the conversation with Coach Pacowski, and he feared that if he didn't upload Lola's photo, she would go down the same path Coach Pacowski did and made his choice to upload Lola's picture instead of their altered photos. Clyde fears that they'll be forgotten, but Lola (touched by her brother's actions) claims that she will never forget about them. As Lola embraces them both and walks away, Lincoln and Clyde's friends inform them that they're in the yearbook after all, in the Yearbook Staff page, where they're referred to as their nickname, Clincoln McCloud. Because of this, Lincoln and Clyde begin Irish line dancing in celebration, with Coach Pacowski joining in as well, but not before he suffers from foot cramps.
