  • After the Krelboynes blow up the class, they are forced to go back to the general school population, where they all join a new clique, except Malcolm, who just hangs out with his old friends. But soon all the cliques are fighting each other. Dewey gets the chicken pox and to entertain himself he plays with Dominos. Hal can barely control knocking them down, especially when Lois catches Reese trying to do the same thing, and says that no matter what happens he will be blamed if the Dominos get knocked over. Reese then makes sure Hal stays clear of the Dominos. When Francis learns that a part of his house in on Native Reserve he starts up a casino.moreless

    • Krelboynes: Unstable chemicals require stable minds.

    • Lois: Those dominos are keeping Dewey from driving me crazy. And if they get knocked over, I will blame you. If a door slams shut and knocks them over, I will blame you. If there is an earthquake, I will blame you. If a condor dies in flight and crashes through our roof and knocks them over, I will blame you. Reese: But thats not fair. Lois: I WILL BLAME YOU!

    Notes (1)

    • Cold Open: Dewey pretends to have a tea party to get Hal to buy him something he's wanted.

    Trivia (2)

    • We learn that Francis and Piama's house is partly on an Indian Reserve.

    • Herkabe's comments about Einstein -- that he carried "spare pants" until he was 24, but he didn't let that bother him and eventually went on to build the first nuclear bomb -- are absolutely false. Einstein was quite suave and a ladies man when young (not your typical "nerd"), and neither Einstein nor his theories had anything to do with nuclear physics -- this is a very common misconception, but anyone who knows anything about Einstein and the history of the A-bomb knows it is not true. Herkabe being so educated should have known better.
