Episode Information

"Washed Up" is the tenth episode of the fourth season, and the one-hundred-fifty-ninth episode of The Loud House.

Plot

The Louds rent a boat for a relaxing day trip on the lake, but the family ends up marooned on a desert island.

Synopsis

Lincoln explains that for the very first time in forever, everyone is free this Saturday. As luck would have it, today also happens to be fishing season, so the family has opted to spend their day by taking a boat trip around Lake Eddy. As the family gets ready, Lola asks Lana for her tire pump so she can inflate her floatie, Lana eats Rita and Lynn Sr.'s bait for breakfast, Lynn exercises her butt in hopes of creating a big splash when she cannonballs, and Lincoln convinces Lucy to join him on the hunt of a mysterious creature lurking in the lake named Plessy.

At Lake Eddy, the family rents their boat from Flip, who tells them to bring in back within three hours, or else he'll double their rental fee. As the family relaxes on the boat, the engine suddenly dies out. It turns out that the engine is filled with junk. Rita tells her family to get the oars, but the oars on the boat are merely just painted on. To make matters worse, there is nothing else that can be used to move the boat either. Suddenly, the family ends up getting caught and swept down into the depths of a raging whirlpool.

With the boat completely destroyed, the family ends up being washed up on a deserted island. As the family begins panicking that they're marooned and that their phones got destroyed in the process, Rita and Lynn Sr. tell the kids to not give up so soon, saying that while they wait for the coast guard to come and pick them up, they can make the most of what they can find on the island. As the family ventures around the island, Rita, Lana, and Lynn find wood to start a fire, Lynn Sr. and Lisa find fresh fruit, Lincoln, Lori, and Lucy follow tracks that lead to fresh water and Luna creates a giant "SOS" in the sand. At night, the parents express their happiness at how optimistic everyone has been.

The next morning, the family wakes up and discovers that wild animals have arrived and eaten all of their food. As they chase the animals away, strong hurricane winds come in and destroy the housing and beds. As Lola chases after the bed she has made, she suddenly gets caught in quicksand. Lana tries to help her, but she gets stuck as well. The family manages to rescue the twins by lassoing them out thanks to a rope that Leni had. At that moment, the family hears a ship horn bellowing in the distance and discover that it's the coast guard. Unfortunately, the boat happens to be going away from the island, since it turns out that the "SOS" lettering that Luna wrote was washed away by the tide. With all of their hard work destroyed, and Lisa informing them that the coast guard only surveys the lake during fishing season (which only occurs every eight months), Rita and Lynn Sr. break down, declaring that they're giving up. However, the kids, motivated by all the perseverance they were given, tell them to not give up just yet, and state that they may have missed the coast guard, but they can still create their own boat to leave.

S4E06A Lily meets Plessy

Guess what Lily found.

Sometime later, the family creates their raft and starts to sail off. Unfortunately, not long after they leave the island, a tidal wave flips them over, but this doesn't stop them, and proceed to pedal back to shore. After several hours of pedaling, a dinghy arrives, and it happens to be Flip, who was looking for them after going over their rental limit. When Lana expresses that the boat was in poor condition and that it's a miracle that they're still alive, Flip decides to not fine them double and offers to let the family travel along. As they ride back home, Plessy, the lake monster Lincoln and Lucy were looking for, appears behind the boat and licks Lily. Lily tries to tell Lincoln about Plessy, but Lincoln misinterprets Lily's actions as going back to the island, and comments that home is the other way, much to Lily's annoyance.

Cast

Trivia

  • In graphic noverl "Livin' La Casa Loud! is a chapter with the same title as the episode.
  • According to Flip in "The Loudest Thanksgiving", the only time when his store isn't open is during fishing season. Considering that this episode takes place during fishing season, the fact that he's present when letting the Louds rent his boat gives insight to this statement.
  • According to Lincoln's calendar, this episode takes place in April.
  • Lincoln uses his knowledge of survival skills he learned from Rip Hardcore again, right after "Mall of Duty".
  • This is the second time the Louds plan to go on a vacation, but everything goes wrong, the first was "Tripped!".
  • When looking in the cabinets of the boat, one of the items shown is a jar of meat molars, referencing Flip's homemade replacement tooth in "Roadie to Nowhere".
  • While looking for something to row the boat, one of the items Lynn Sr. finds is a prosthetic leg, and if one were to notice when the family washes up on the island, Lincoln and Lucy were using that same leg as their flotation device.
  • Irony:
    • When the kids began to freak out, the parents told them to not give up so easily. When all of the hard work the family created was destroyed, the parents began to lose hope until the kids told them to not give up.
    • Lincoln and Lucy kept looking for Plessy, but in the end when it appeared, they both missed their chance.
