- Crashing through the crowded halls
Dodging girls like Ping-Pong balls
Just to reach the bathroom on time
Leaping over laundry piles
Diapers you can smell for miles
Guy's got to do what he can to survive
- In the Loud house
In the Loud house
- Duck, dodge, push, and shove
Is how we show our love
- In the Loud house, in the Loud house
- One boy and ten girls
Wouldn't trade it for the world
- Loud Loud Loud
I'm thinking these gloves would look super chic on you, Scoots.
- Oh, these are too tight.
My fingers can't breathe.
- Excuse me, darling.
I'm going line dancing tonight, and I need to know
which of these britches are best for boot scooting.
- Sorry, Cheryl, but when there's a line,
you have to wait your turn.
- Ooh, aren't I a rude goose.
Y'all got a rhinestone vest section?
- Over behind the chaps.
So how are we feeling about the gloves?
They're snug in all the right places.
- Hmm, I don't know.
- Sweet ride. Sweeter gloves.
- Here's a tip for a job well done.
- Leni, can I see you in the back?
- Sure, but first can I interest you
in a new floral fanny pack?
Oh, sorry, Mrs. C, I can't turn it off.
Is it my birthday?
- You, Leni Loud,
are Reininger's employee of the month.
It's my birthday, and I'm employee of the month!
- [chuckles] It's just the second one, Len.
- Remember when you first started?
Oh, we had a few bumps in the road.
- O-M-gosh, I cannot let you buy that, sir.
- Well, thanks for your opinion, but I--
- It's so not your color. - [sighs]
- So here's to you, Leni.
We're so proud of how far you've come.
- Thank you, but the break room
isn't that far from the register.
- Hi, sweetie.
How was work? - Amazing.
I'm employee of the month. - Can't say I'm surprised.
You did sell Dad all those scarves,
and now he feels so hip.
- I didn't think I was a scarf guy,
but this just goes with everything.
- I'm proud of you, Leni. You've really grown up.
Speaking of which, how would you feel about being in charge
while Dad and I go away for the night?
- Hmm, I would feel scared?
Did I get the answer right?
- Honey, no, we're asking you to be in charge.
Dad's catering the renaissance fair,
and I need to help him run the mutton station.
- You really think I can handle it?
- I do. Now that Lori's at college,
you're the oldest in the house,
and I think you're ready to step up.
- You'll be fine. Just trust your instincts.
- Fare thee well, young maiden.
We are setting forth for the renaissance fair.
Know that we art proud of thy newfound responsibility.
- I don't know what that means, but thank you.
- I think what your dad means is you're gonna do great.
Please don't let the house burn down.
[screaming and clattering]
- I got this. Just one night.
- No, let it go! Let it go!
Let it! - What's going on, guys?
- Lola's trying to take my money!
- It's my money! I spotted it!
- I was the one who fished it out of the sewer.
- Give it! - [screams]
- Hey, come on. Stop fighting, please.
- Yep, that's me. I just got sprayed by a skunk.
He wasn't down for it at first, but, uh, I talked him into it.
- Leni, could you help me make room for this?
- Sure, is that lime jelly? - No, it's a spleen.
- That's mine! - Ugh!
- [hyperventilates, screams]
- Leni, hello?
- Give me that! - Okay, time-out.
Yep, she is officially in over her head.
I mean, Lori would've handled all this in two seconds flat.
Poor thing. - Huh?
Lori, that's it!
[cell phone rings, vibrates]
- Lori, help.
Mom and Dad are gone, and I'm in charge,
and I don't know how to do, like, anything.
- Sorry, Leni, but I'm at practice.
Can I call you back?
- No, please, Lori,
just help me out this one time,
and I'll never call you ever again.
- Well, that's a little extreme.
[chuckles] Just tell me what's going on.
- Give me back--
- Okay, guys, you're gonna split the money,
and that's final.
- That's not how money works!
- Tomato juice will take care of that smell.
- Ugh. - [chirps]
- No, get away from my sister! - [chirps]
- That was, like, exhausting. Can we all go to sleep now?
- It's 4:30. - [groans]
- Dude, Luan turned our room into a comedy club,
and she kicked me out because I wouldn't pay
the two-lemonade minimum.
- Me and my boo are here for the early show.
[feedback whines] - [clears throat]
What did Germany say to Italy first thing in the morning?
Get it? - [chuckles]
- Ha, I love a good geography gag.
- Ah, thank you, folks.
Now, don't forget to tip your server.
- I think you're gonna need this.
[cell phone rings vibrates]
- Sorry, that's my sister.
Hi, Leni, what's up?
- Luan's running a comedy club out of her room!
- Oh, sorry.
Okay, here's what you do.
- What do you call a chicken mixed with a--
- Folks, we've got to shut this place down.
We're over capa--huh?
- [whispering] Capacity.
- Well, if the fire department's here,
I guess that's legit.
- Scoots, where's your scooter?
- I upgraded.
- Thanks for the assist, dude.
- [sighs] Now can I be done?
- Hey, Leni, is it cool if Claude and I
watch "The Disemboweling"?
- Isn't that supposed to be the scariest movie of all time?
- [scoffs] What?
It's a comedy. So, Leni, can we?
I'll take that as a yes. - Yeah!
- With that terrible tee shot, a redo was requested,
and thus was created the mulligan.
[cell phone rings, vibrates] Oh, my word!
Leni, I can't talk. I'm in class.
- Lori, please.
- You've got this. Huh?
Fine, but if I get a call from someone named BooBooBear,
I'm gonna need that back.
[phone line beeping]
- Seriously, dude, enough of your jokes!
- No, people like the jokes! - [groans]
- Hey, Clyde, I got the popcorn!
- My guitar, dude!
- [hyperventilates, screams]
- What in the name of Bing Crosby
is going on in that house?
- Mr. Grouse, I'm so sorry for all the noise.
Were we bothering you?
- You're dang tootin' you were.
I was so distracted, I mowed over my begonias!
Eight months down the drain.
- Sorry! We'll keep it down.
There's just a lot going on over here--
- Leni, help!
The Wi-Fi's down, and the movie went out
right at the scariest-- I mean funniest part.
- I'm fine if you want to switch gears.
We could read or do a word jumble--
- Can you help us please?
- Lincoln, I have no idea how to--
- Eh, eh, eh, do a hard reset
of the router by updating the LAN configuration.
Once an IT guy, always an IT guy.
- What am I going to do with all these intestines?
- Bring it in, Tony!
- Huh? - What?
I needed a little sand to practice my beach volleyball.
- Mr. Grouse, what do I do?
- Well, how the heck do I know? Figure it out yourself.
- I can't. I'm no good at this.
Come on, you remember when I styled you
for the Veteran's Day parade?
- Eh, the ascot did add a touch of class.
[engine turning over]
- Thanks, Mr. Grouse. You're a lifesaver.
[explosion] [screams] Huh?
What happened? - Apologies, sibling.
I created a new fruit punch that won't leave stains.
Apparently, it is also quite combustible.
[gasps] But see?
- Please don't let the house burn down.
- Do you think I could pull off a pinkie ring, too?
No, no, no, no! [screams]
- Mr. Grouse, help.
- Sorry, it's time for my nap.
- This is an emergency!
You can't just go home and take a nap.
- Who said anything about going home?
[rock music playing]
- Leni, Luna turned my comedy club
into a rock club--do something.
- Leni, do you know how to get blood--
I mean ketchup off the ceiling?
- Leni, turn the movie off!
- What do you mean you're empty?
Wait, wait, don't go!
[cell phone rings, vibrates]
- Hey, Leni boo. We're having a self-care day.
You want to come with? - Guys, I can't.
I'm in charge at home, and everybody needs something,
and I have no idea how to do anything,
and I'm totally hopeless!
Um, I'm sorry, this does not sound
like the Leni Loud that we know and love.
- Yeah, we've seen you kill it at work all the time.
You're a total boss.
- Just tap into that confidence at home.
- All you need to do is think of your family
as customers that don't pay.
- O-M-gosh, thanks, guys. I know what to do now.
You're both, like, geniuses.
Attention, shoppers-- I mean siblings.
Here's the deal-- we're gonna wait in line,
and everyone's gonna get their turn, okay?
So how can I help you today, ma'am?
- Well, my concoction is currently corroding
the living room floor. - Hmm.
We have some lovely water that would do a great job
of stopping that burn.
[upbeat jazz music]
- Our movie was... - I can't stop thinking...
- Way, way too scary. - About what she did with the--
- Let's see if we can get you folks
into something a little less terrifying.
"And the caterpillar turned into a beautiful butterfly."
- [sighs] - That hit the spot.
Five for you and five for you makes ten.
Thanks for coming in today. - Um, we live here.
- Sir, do not make me call security.
And we are closed.
- Ugh, ow. - Dad, Mom?
I thought you were coming back tomorrow?
- Well, no one bothered to tell me
that the renaissance fair was vegan,
and I was only packing meat,
so we saddled up our steed... - Vanzilla.
- And set out for our castle.
- The house, which looks great, Leni.
There's only one hole in the floor.
I knew no job would be too big for me employee of the month.
- Aw, thanks, Mom. Do I get more cake?
- How about a half-eaten mutton leg?
- [screams] - Ooh, mutton leg.
What? Napping makes me hungry.
[chews loudly] That's a good one.
- Agent McBride, come in.
I've infiltrated the secret lair of MALICE--
Masterminds Acting Lawlessly in Committing Evil.
- Careful extracting the package.
This evil agent is particularly dangerous
and a biter.
- Careful, that serial is packed with fiber.
It's extra crunchy.
- Success. Fly the eagle home.
- That's my color-changing spoon!
- Ugh, stop, Lola! - [screams]
- Dude, what's your deal?
- He and Clyde are "playing spies."
They're into a dumb new comic book.
- Um, Secret Agent David Steele is not dumb.
He's a well-oiled fighting machine.
Initiate breakout sequence.
Ah, oh! [groans]
- Family huddle, yo. I got news!
- This better be good, LJ.
You almost made my cherry souffl collapse.
- I just saw a moving truck pull up next door.
New neighbors, baby!
- Now, hang on.
We don't want to--ah!
[people introducing themselves simultaneously]
- I made you a pie with Michigan cherries.
- Ch--cherries? - From Michigan!
- Oh, thank you. - Cherries, ugh.
- Cherries? Thank you, but--
- Put her there, pal!
- Bad family! Back, back!
Sorry, I'm still training them.
Welcome, we're the Louds.
- We're the Millers. I'm Carly.
This is my hubby, Jeff, and our son, Ryan.
- And no need to apologize.
Living next to such a lively bunch
will add some excitement to our lives.
- Well, let's see how you feel in an hour.
- [humming melody] Hmm?
[soft dramatic music]
[devices whirring and beeping]
They're spies! The neighbors are spies!
- Sweetie, you do this to the new neighbors
every time you and Clyde are on one of your kicks.
- But the neighbors are evil supervillains!
But the neighbors are ghosts!
But the neighbors are aliens!
I guess I'll just have to prove it to you.
David Steele style.
- You're blocking the TV, bro. - [groans]
Agent McBride, come in.
I need your help with a new mission. My--
- Neighbors are spies, but your family doesn't believe you,
so you have to gather evidence? - [snaps fingers]
both: Let's do this.
[engine turning over, tires squealing]
- Hmm, Jeff, where you off to in such a hurry?
- That's what we're about to find out.
- The library? But why?
- Yeah, why?
Engage Agent Steele button cams.
[soft dramatic music]
- Hi, uh, can you tell me where the suspense section is?
- Do you like suspense books?
- Yes, yes, I do like suspense books.
- Fishy. [camera shutter clicks]
- Super fishy. - Fish city.
- Eh, she's just getting a Flippee.
- Peach, huh?
You sure you don't want cherry?
- I hate cherries!
- That's weird. Who doesn't like cherries?
both: Whoa! - Oh!
- Hey, get that hunk of junk out of my--
- And stay out!
Why do I suddenly feel naked?
[school bell rings]
- Whoops! Sorry, buddy.
- Activating Agent Steele pepperoni listening device.
- So, new kid, got any big plans this weekend?
Gonna be cage wrestling in the backyard
if you're interested.
- Thanks, but I'll be busy unpacking, cleaning,
taking out the garbage.
- Wait a minute, Clyde.
Garbage day isn't until Tuesday.
- Something stinks here.
[toilet flushes] Sorry, fellas.
Mee-Maw's homemade yogurt.
- Now, what do we have here?
- Hmm, Carly and the cherries.
- Jeff and all those library books.
- [scoffs] Ryan's blatant lie about garbage day.
What does it all add up to?
- Maybe Agent Steele can help us.
- Lincoln, look!
In issue seven, "taking out the garbage"
meant MALICE was plotting some kind of destruction.
- That's right. Hmm.
But what's there to destroy in Royal Woods?
both: [gasp] Cherries!
- Of course!
Carly flipped her lid over cherries.
- And if they destroy the cherry supply...
They'd cripple the local economy!
- And take over the whole state of Michigan
just like MALICE when they took over the North Pole
and held Santa for ransom in that holiday issue.
- Oh, I didn't read that one. - It was really good.
So the only question left is,
who are the Millers working for?
Jeff taking out a book on how to grow Georgia peaches
in the suspense section.
Suspense... That's it!
Clyde, I figured it out.
Suspense must be the name of their evil organization.
Secret Underground Society of Peach Entrepreneurs
Nixing Sour Exports!
- Okay, well, now that you've said it,
it's just embarrassingly obvious.
- We have to get to that console
in the Millers' attic
and override the cherry destruction order.
- But how do we keep them distracted?
- Distraction is my specialty.
- A barbecue for the Millers
was such a thoughtful idea, sweetie.
- Just wanted them to feel welcome.
- Still think they're spies?
- Can you believe I ever thought that?
- No. Hey, think fast!
- Agent McBride, are you in position?
- 10-4, the squirrel is in the nest.
- Perfect, now to summon our undercover agent.
All right, Agent Charles, if you can find a way
into the Millers' house, this hot dog
will be all yours.
- Oh, easiest hot dog you've ever earned.
[clatters] Ugh--meant to do that.
Clyde, I'm in the Millers' house.
Everything good on your end?
- Yep, there's no one in sight.
So you're probably wondering why I'm in this bush.
[laughs] Funny story.
Cleo got out and, boy, that darn cat.
- Hey, everybody,
Lincoln is sneaking around the neighbors' house!
[soft dramatic music]
- [screams] Ugh.
Agent McBride, I'm in the attic.
- Um, we've got a situation.
Lola blew our cover! Everyone's heading your way!
- Dang it! We'll have to work fast.
Okay, buddy, walk me through this.
- Right--issue number four.
Agent Steele had to reroute
the MALICE console to override mode.
To do that, you'll have to remove the side panel.
- Good thing I always carry my Agent Steele ink pen
with laser feature
and optional cat toy attachment.
Okay, which wire am I looking for?
- I can't tell!
It's either chili powder brown or chicory.
You're just gonna have to pick one!
- What are you doing in the ding dang neighbor's house?
- I can explain! The Millers are spies!
They work for an evil organization called SUSPENSE,
and they're about to destroy all the cherries in Michigan.
- Jeff and I work for the weather services.
- That console monitors storm systems
moving in toward Royal Woods,
and FYI, it's gonna be hot, hot, hot this weekend.
- [groans] Sorry, everyone.
I really messed up this time.
- I am so sorry.
We will be having a long talk with Lincoln about boundaries!
Okay, everyone, let's go
and leave these very patient people alone.
- Agent Loud, was the mission a success?
- No, Clyde, buddy.
It was a major failure, over... [sighs]
- Commence total cherry annihilation
in 20 seconds.
- You're r-really...
- And your son's right.
We work for SUSPENSE.
- Secret Underground Society of Peach Entrepreneurs
Nixing Sour Exports.
- And it's too late to stop us now.
- Too late is just enough time.
Activate Agent David Steele pudding shoes!
- Whoa! - Ugh.
- Three, two, one--
Cherry annihilation terminated.
- You may have thwarted us this time,
but we won't stop until Georgia peaches
rule the fruit world!
- Not on our watch.
We're taking you straight to the ding dang FBI.
- You'll have to catch us first.
[all scream, gasp]
- Katherine Mulligan reporting from Franklin Street,
where authorities are still searching
for a family of spies.
Their plot to destroy the Michigan cherry supply
was thwarted thanks to these two adorable heroes.
- Are we on? - Is this cable?
- Are we on? - Bad family.
I'm sorry we didn't take you seriously, Lincoln.
- Eh, can't blame you.
I got to admit it was all kind of crazy.
- Yo, new neighbors are moving in next door.
Let's go meet them.
- Yeah, come on! - Let's go!
- Hold it.
Remember what we talked about?
Lincoln, go check it out first.
- Come in, Agent McBride, looks like we're needed
for another stakeout.
A secret agent's job is never done.
Meant to do that.
- Cramped inside this tiny space
May sound bad, but ain't the case
In the Loud house - Loud house
- Duck and dodge and push and shove
That's the way we show our love in the Loud house
- Loud house
Laundry piles stacked up high
Hand-me-downs that make me cry
Stand in line to take a pee
Never any privacy
Chaos with 11 kids
That's the way it always is
In the Loud house
