The following is a transcript for the episode "Overnight Success".


[The episode begins with Lincoln in his room marking a date on his calendar on his bedroom door.]
Lincoln: [To the viewers] "Tonight is a historic night for me. I GET TO HAVE A SLEEPOVER!!" [His loud voice alerts an owl and makes it fly away.] "Now, I know what you're thinking. Lincoln, what's the big deal? Let me explain. See, sleepovers in the Loud house have not always gone so well."
[A flashback shows when Lynn had a sleepover with her friends. They were in the Living room, where Lynn was dribbling a soccer ball and her friends were cheering for her. But at the moment, the ball flies out the window and caused a crack in it.]
Lynn Sr.: "AAHHHH! Lynn Jr.!"
[A different flashback shows Leni and her friends having a sleepover in the living room where they were using hairdryers to blow dry their hair.]
Leni: "Okay, we're done with the blow dry bar, time to curl!" [She says, as she holds up a curling iron, and looks at the power supply filled with wires and cables, as she plugged in her curling iron, it showed all the buildings in the neighborhood had powered off.]
Lynn Sr.: "Leni Loud!!"
[Another flashback shows Luna in the living room where she was smashing things with her electric guitar with her friends surrounding her.]
Luna: [in a British accent] "GOODNIGHT, LIVING ROOM!" [smashes her guitar on the coffee table.]
Lynn Sr.: "What the darn heck?!"
Chunk: "Hey buddy! I don't see you on the list!"
[Lynn Sr. is seen kicked out of the house.]
Lynn Sr.: "Luna Loud!!!"
[The montage of flashbacks ends]
Lincoln: [To the viewers] "Thanks to my sisters, sleepovers were banned in the loud house. So when I wanted to have one, it took some hard selling."
[Another flashback is shown where Lincoln is wearing his professional suit in front of the television facing his parents.]
Lincoln: "Sleepovers. Why should I be able to have one? Because Lincoln Loud is all about the four R's." [turns on a video]

[Lincoln is trying to get Cliff out of a tree, but the cat hisses and attacks Lincoln, making him fall off the ladder.]
[Lincoln is helping an old lady across the street, but her cat in her basket attacks Lincoln.]
[Lincoln is throwing out Lily's dirty diaper, but Cliff is in the trash bin and attacks Lincoln again which Lily giggles at.]
Lincoln: [begging his parents] "And, really, you guys, it would be so awesome if you let me do this!" [Cliff hisses at him but refrains his assault.] Please?"
[Ends flashback]
Lincoln: "Luckily, Dad is a real sucker for cat videos. Now that they've said yes, I'm gonna make sure this is the best sleepover ever." [shows off an entire mountain of sleepover supplies.] "I've got the juice boxes chilling, the couch pillows ready to be turned into a fort, the snacks stacked, and the itinerary totally mapped out." [rolls out a list of events to occur.] "Every second of the night is planned for maximum sleepover enjoyment. All that's missing now? My guest." [busts out his radio and calls Clyde] "Come in, Little Bo Sleep. This is Slumberjack. What's your location?"
[Clyde is approaching the Loud House.]
Clyde: "This is Little Bo Sleep. My parents are walking me over now. Prepare for contact in three, two, one..."
[The doorbell rings]
Lincoln: "This is it! Time to make history!" [answers the door to Clyde and two men who are Clyde's fathers.] "Hey, Clyde. Hi, Mr. McBride. Hi, Mr. McBride."
Harold: "Hi, Lincoln. Ready for your big night?"
Lincoln: "You bet."
Howard: "Great. Just a couple things Clyde will need. Sleeping bag, feetsie pajamas, white noise machine, humidifier, dehumidifier, earplugs, inhaler, and allergy medications." [hands each of them to Lincoln as he lists them.]
Harold: "Here are all the numbers where you can reach us if our cell phones fail." [hands Lincoln the numbers] "Restaurant, movie theater, coffee shop, gas case we have to pee."
Howard: "Hm. Good idea." [giving something to Clyde] "And here's a photo of us since we can't tuck you in tonight." [holds Clyde closely]
Harold: "Remember, Clyde. No nuts, no gluten, no sugar, and be careful with orange juice. You know how you get with pulp."
Howard: [holds Harold] "He's growing up so fast."
Harold: "Come on, Howie. Remember what Dr. Lopez said about letting go. Now let go."
[Clyde's fathers leave]
Howard: [sobbing] "I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!"
Harold: "Have fun, Clyde!"
Clyde: "Oh, we will!" [closes door] "This place is like New York City; it never sleeps."
Lincoln: "And neither will we. I've got a whole itinerary for us. First up is the five hour director's cut of our favorite sci-fi fantasy flick, "King of the Rings"."
[Clyde is not responding.]
Lincoln: "Clyde? Clyde? Clyde? Clyde?" [He hears some sniffing in the bathroom and finds Clyde sniffing a bottle of shampoo.] "Uh...what are you doing?"
Clyde: "Inhaling Lori's glorious coconut and guava shampoo." [sniffs some more] "Mmm...~"
Lincoln: "We all use that shampoo."
Clyde: [sniffs Lincoln's hair and looks disappointed.] "So you do..."
Lincoln: "Come on. Let's get outta here before Lori comes in and you pass out again."
Clyde: "Please. I'm always cool around Lori."
[At that moment, Lori steps out of her room. Clyde notices her and goes into his robot mode.]
Clyde: "ABORT. ABORT. SYSTEMS OVERHEATING." [pulls the shower curtain off and shuts down.]
Lincoln: [sighs] "We need to start King of the Rings in the next 25 seconds or we'll be passing into precious armpit farting time."

[The boys are on their way to Lincoln's room. Some laughter can be heard.]
Lincoln: [looking over the itinerary] "Okay, we may have to do armpit farts during King of the Rings. Also soda burps. It's okay. I can make this work." [notices Clyde is gone] "Clyde?"
[Clyde is listening to some of Luan's material.]
Luan: (through microphone) "The lettuce was a head, and the tomato was trying to ketchup." [laughs to rimshot and laugh track.]
Clyde: [laughs and applauds] "Luan, I love your brand of offbeat observational humor."
Luan: "Well, thank you, my good man. Give it up for the house band!"
[Luna performs a killer solo and turns on some colored lights.]
Clyde: "Luna, your rock stylings moves both my heart and my feet."
Luna: [in a British accent] "Cheers, mate!"
[Lincoln comes in and takes Clyde back.]
Lincoln: "Uh, I'll thank you to stop bugging Clyde. We have a long night ahead of us." [leaves the room and checks the itinerary.] "We're now a full minute behind schedule. But we can make that up if we don't waste time buttering the popcorn."
Clyde: "That's fine. My dads say my cholesterol level could use a break."[A hackysack ball comes out of Lynn and Lucy's room and pegs Clyde.]
Lynn: "HEADS!"
Clyde: [catches it with his foot] "I got it!" [does some tricks]
Lynn: "All right, Clyde! Keep it going!" [joins in with him]
[Enter Leni with a jar of face cream.]
Leni: "I think my new face cream might cause hives. Can someone else try it first?" [splashes it on Clyde] "Ooh! Claude! Perfect!"
Clyde: "Actually, it's Clyde. This doesn't have peanuts in it, does it?"
[Enter Lisa with a helmet she created]
Lisa: "Time for my Friday night brainwave study!" [notices Clyde] "Oh! A new subject!" [puts it on Clyde, turns it on, and starts to take control of him.] "DANCE! DANCE, YOU FOOL!"
Clyde: [under the helmet's surging pulses.] "THIS IS AWESOME!"
[A snake breaks out of the twins' room.]
Lana: "WE'VE GOT A RUNNER!" [sees her snake wrap itself around Clyde.] "Aw...El Diablo likes you."
Leni, Lynn, Lana, and Lisa: "Aw..."
Lincoln: "Guys, enough! Leave Clyde alone! We have an itinerary!"
Clyde: "It's okay, Lincoln. We can just hang here with your sisters."
Lincoln: "What? No! I see my sisters enough as it is. This sleepover is supposed to be our night."
[Lola appears with a mirror and a toy wand.]
Lola: "It's princess makeover time! I need a toad to turn into a beautiful princess." [sees Clyde and gasps] "Oh, you'll be a challenge."
Lincoln: "Clyde, come on! We gotta get started!" [grabs Clyde's arm]
Lola: "Hey, that's my toad!" [grabs Clyde's other arm]
Clyde: "I hate to let the kid down, Lincoln. Start the movie and I'll be right in."
Lincoln: "Are you kidding me? I can't believe you would rather spend your time with my dumb sisters..."
Leni, Lynn, Lana, Lola, and Lisa: "HEY!!!"
Lincoln: "...than do all the things I planned for us! You are ruining the sleepover, Clyde! Fart time is out the window, and I seriously doubt we'll get to booger flicking!"
Clyde: "But, Lincoln, we can still have fun doing this other stuff."
Lincoln: "You know what? Let's just forget the whole thing. The sleepover is officially canceled!" [slams his door]
Clyde: "I should go make up with him. Dr. Lopez taught me a lot about conflict resolution."
[Lori appears]
Lori: "Clyde, good. I need a man's opinion. What do you think Bobby means by "Hey"?"
Clyde: [enters robot mode upon seeing her] "ABORT. ABORT. SYSTEMS SHUTTING..." [lowering in pitch] "...DOWN..." [goes into a lovesick reboot]
Leni: [checks her face cream] "Maybe there are peanuts in here."

[Lincoln's room. Lincoln is pacing around in frustration.]
Lincoln: "I did not get mauled by three cats just to have this sleepover go to waste." [gets an idea] "Maybe it doesn't have to."
[Another boy comes over.]
Lincoln: "Liam! Welcome to the best sleepover ever! Come on in!"[As Liam steps in, there's a commotion going on upstairs.]
Liam: "Sounds pretty loud up there."
Lincoln: "Keep it to yourself, Liam. They can smell fear."
[They go into Lincoln's room.]
Lincoln: "Behold, Liam! The King of the Rings five hour director's cut!" [puts the blu-ray in]
[Lola barges in with her makeup kit]
Lola: "PRINCESS MAKEOVER TIIIIIIIIIIIME!" [sees Liam] "Ooh! A new toad!" [gives him a full makeover against his will.]
[Liam sees what Lola did to his face and runs out the door.]
Lola: "Some people just don't appreciate beauty. I MADE YOUR EYES POP, KID!"
Extended European Director's Edition

[Lincoln has a new boy over.]
Lincoln: "Chad, my new sleepover pal. Get ready for the best five hours ever spent watching a dramatic search for a lost piece of jewelry!"
[Lisa pops out and notices Chad.]
Lisa: "Ho, ho, ho! Fresh brains!"
Chad: "Say what?"
[Lisa pulls out some jumper cables and starts laughing like crazy. Chad runs out of the house screaming in panic.]
Lisa: "Eh, I doubt there was much brain worth examining in that specimen anyway."
[Lincoln has brought over yet another boy.]
Lincoln: "Thanks for coming, Artie. I want you to know you were my..." [looks at a list and has crossed off Liam and Chad from it.] "...first' choice for a sleepover."
[They bump into Lucy]
Lucy: "Hey. I'm conducting a practice funeral and I need a corpse." [looks at Artie] "How do you feel about enclosed spaces?"
[Artie bolts for the door and runs back home. Lincoln looks at Lucy sternly and Lucy just smiles. The next boy Lincoln invites over is having a nice time until he smells Lily having just made a mess in her diaper, causing him to gag and run. The next boy Lincoln invites over gets a surprise from Lynn.]
Lynn: [playing Football] "Hut, hut, hut, hut, hut!" [tackles Lincoln's guest]
[The next boy is chased out by El Diablo.]
Lincoln: "Okay, so maybe not everyone can handle the Loud House. But I think I finally found the perfect candidate. He lives in between a freeway and a circus."
[The doorbell rings and Lincoln answers it meeting a very short boy with glasses, buckteeth, and a crazy red hairdo.]
Lincoln: "Zach, my man! Ready for a great night?"
[The sisters' commotion blows the roof off the house.]
Zach: "Aw, heck no!" [leaves]
Lincoln: "Huh. Now that surprises me. [He closes the door] Isn't there anyone who can handle this house?" [hears the white noise machine and turns it off as he notices all of Clyde's stuff on the floor.] "Clyde! Of course! He doesn't just handle it, he likes it!" [busts out his walkie talkie.] "Little Bo Sleep, this is Slumberjack. Do you read?" [only picks up static] "Wow. He must be really mad. Was I that big of a jerk?" [hears the white noise machine again] "Oh, who asked you?" [Turns it off in annoyance]

[The McBride residence. Lincoln climbs in through the window into Clyde's room. It looks like Clyde is under the covers.]
Lincoln: "Hey, buddy. Listen. I'm really sorry for blowing up at you. I didn't realize how lucky I was to have you as a friend." [No response] "The silent treatment, huh? I deserve it. I just hope you'll forgive me someday." [hears another noise machine] "Man! How many noise machines do you own?"

[Back at the Loud House, Lincoln hears some laughter going on in Luna and Luan's room and finds out Clyde is hanging with all his sisters except Lori.]
Lincoln: "Clyde? You're still here?"
Clyde: "Sorry, Lincoln. I know you wanted me to leave, but I passed out. And every time Lori came to check on me, I passed out again."
Lincoln: "No, Clyde. I want you to stay. I was just at your house apologizing to...someone."
Clyde: "Oh, that must have been my stuffed animals. They kind of keep me company at night."
Lincoln: "Right. Because you're an only child. No wonder you like hanging out with all of my sisters."
Clyde: "Yeah. Sometimes, it's pretty lonely at my house."
[Luna is setting the mood by playing her violin.]
Luna: [emotional] "Dude...your story moves both my heart...and my fingers..."
Lincoln: "How about we start this sleepover again?"
Clyde: "You mean it?"
Lincoln: "Definitely. Only this time..." [tears up the itinerary causing his sisters to gasp in shock.] "...we're gonna do what you wanna do."
[Clyde smiles]

[Lincoln and Clyde are now having the sleepover with all of Lincoln's sisters.]
Leni: [applying shampoo to Clyde] "Now, Clark, this shampoo may cause baldness, so let me know what happens."
[Lily garbles to Clyde and Clyde garbles back.]
Lola: "Ooh! I see two toads that need makeovers!" [gives Lincoln and Clyde makeovers]
Lynn: [with her hackysack] "Heads up, yo!"
[She and Clyde play a little and take their seats as soon as King of the Rings starts.]
Clyde: "King of the Rings! Sweet!"
Lincoln and Clyde: "To the best sleepover ever!"
[Lori returns with some snacks.]
Lori: "Okay, who wants pizza bites?"
Clyde: [enters robot mode upon seeing her once again.] "ABORT! ABORT! SYSTEMS SHUTTING..." [lowering in pitch] "...DOWN!" [shuts down]
Leni: [examines her shampoo] "Sheesh. Are there peanuts in everything?"
