Episode Information

"Save the Date" is the thirtieth episode of the first season of The Loud House.


After a hurtful misunderstanding, Lori and Lincoln go on a double date with Bobby and his sister, Ronnie Anne.


At school, Lincoln finds a sloppy joe in his pants with a love note from Ronnie Anne. His classmates tease him, and accuse him of being in love with her, but Lincoln asserts that he doesn't like her that way and asserts why he doesn't. Unfortunately, Ronnie Anne was behind him and she storms off, obviously angry about what he said. Noting how upset she looked, Clyde points out that Lincoln may have really hurt her feelings, but Lincoln figures that she'll get over it.

However, when Lincoln gets home from school, a livid and heartbroken Lori informs him that he made Ronnie Anne cry, which in turn led to Bobby breaking up with her--when Lincoln expresses confusion as to why Bobby would care, Lori reveals that Ronnie Anne is Bobby's little sister, and adds that Bobby told Lori that he can't bring himself to go out with someone who's related to someone who hurt someone he's related to (in this case, his sister). Fortunately, Lori was able to arrange a double date between herself, Lincoln, Bobby and Ronnie Anne at a French/Mexican-fusion restaurant in the hopes of patching things up--Lincoln (very reluctantly) goes along with it, after Lori explains that Bobby will only get back together with her if he sees Lincoln being nice to his sister and apologizing for what he said in person.

At the restaurant, the two couples attempt to connect while Clyde, disguised as a waiter, repeatedly tries to humiliate Bobby and make his move on Lori. Later on, Lincoln and Ronnie Anne manage to find some common ground by talking about how embarrassing their older siblings are. When Bobby sees their siblings getting along, he happily rekindles his relationship with Lori. However, Lincoln sees his classmates are also at the restaurant and tells Clyde to help him to get him out of the restaurant without them seeing him being with Ronnie Anne.

S1E15B Lincoln and Ronnie Anne kiss

Lincoln and Ronnie Anne shares a kiss.

Their plan to get out fails and Lincoln's classmates accuse him of being on a date with Ronnie Anne. To save face, Lincoln asserts that he's not on a date and insults her like before. Once again, Ronnie Anne overhears Lincoln's insults and runs off in tears again, making Bobby break up with Lori again. Feeling guilty, Lincoln tries to show Ronnie Anne he does care by kissing her in the middle of the restaurant for all to see, much to the delight of their older siblings who immediately get back together (much to Clyde's annoyance).

The next day at school, Lincoln is the butt of his classmates' jokes for his public display of affection but he chooses to accept it because he feels it's better than ruining Lori and Bobby's relationship. Suddenly, Ronnie Anne shows up, slaps him for the kiss and breaks up with him, causing his classmates to stop their teasing and offer him their sympathies. He then finds a note from Ronnie Anne saying that the break up was fake to get them to stop making fun of him, something that Lincoln truly appreciates. Clyde comes by, upset about not being with Lori, but cheers himself up by dancing with the Mexican musicians and Lincoln joins in as well and both shout out "Olé!" as the episode ends.



  • This episode marks Ronnie Anne's first on-screen appearance (she was mentioned before in "Heavy Meddle", but didn't appear physically). It's also revealed that she and Bobby are siblings and that Bobby has very strong protective instincts towards her.
  • The title card of the episode doesn't feature Lincoln's physical form, but instead the red circle on the title card is drawn to resemble his head.
  • Lori wears Bobby's "Three Wolf Moon" sweater again, but this time, the wolf is on the right side of the sweater, which could make it a different "Three Wolf Moon" sweater than the one worn in "Driving Miss Hazy".
  • At Jean Juan's, Lincoln mentions a "fromage con queso", which humorously translates to "cheese with cheese".
  • In the Filipino dub, Lincoln and Ronnie Anne's kissing scene is cut out. However, for unknown reasons, Ronnie Anne slapping him for kissing her and the fake break-up scene is shown.
  • Irony: The classmates mocked Lincoln's relationship with Ronnie Anne, but when she "broke up" with him, they feel sorry for him.


S1E15B Clyde being a gentleman towards Lori

The Arc de Triomphe picture behind Lincoln.

  • Arc de Triomphe - One of the pictures at Jean Juan's French Mex's depicts the famous monument in Paris, France.
  • Tirso de Molina - The "Jean Juan's" in the full restaurant title, "Jean Juan's French Mex Buffet", could be a cultural reference to the fictional character, Don Juan, because the playwright showed how Don Juan had to pay for his sins. Just like that, Lincoln was forced to pay for his own sin, in which his sin was that he made Ronnie Anne cry (unintentionally but he still knew better), which had caused Bobby to break up with Lori. Therefore, Lori had forced Lincoln to go on a double date with her and Bobby, with Ronnie Anne as his special girl, in attempt that Lincoln and Ronnie Anne will get along, for if they do, Lori's relationship with Bobby would be healed.
  • Beauty and the Beast - When Clyde is consoling Lincoln at the end, he says "story as old as time", which refers to the film's song.
  • Las Mañanitas - From Lincoln's line "So how about that math test" to when Clyde crushes the nacho chip, the traditional birthday song can be heard in the background.


S1E15B Pictures of Lori, Bobby, and Ronnie Anne
  • When Lori tells Lincoln Ronnie Anne is Bobby's sister, and shows him a picture in her album of Bobby giving Ronnie Anne a piggy back ride, Bobby overlaps Lori's hair, even though they are behind her.
  • When Lincoln and Lori meet up with Bobby and Ronnie Anne at Jean Juan's French Mexican Buffet, Lincoln's outfit was mis-colored on his khakis and dress shoes. Instead of brown, it was blue and white, matching Lincoln's jeans and sneakers.
  • When Lori jumps into Bobby's arms after Clyde knocks over the desk, the heel on Lori's shoe is missing.
  • When Lori says "Uh, uh, actions speak louder than words." the closed captions misspell as "Unh Unh."
  • Lori has a bracelet on her right wrist for the date, but when Ronnie Anne runs off in tears after Lincoln insulted her, she doesn't have the bracelet.
