    • Lois: Your daughter is gnawing on my son!

    • Reese: Relax. Everyone will think Josh is a thief. His parents will be tied up in court, and Emily will be thrown into a foster home. Where she'll bite her foster parents, who will leave her at the side of the road, and she can spend the rest of her life biting hillbillies on the interstate.

    • Malcolm: Yeah, and that kid, Josh, told everyone I was born with both sex organs and raised as a girl until I was five.

    • Dewey: Late at night when you're sleeping, that's when Malcolm comes a peepin'! You better watch out, you better beware or Malcolm'll see your underwear! Malcolm: Where did you learn that? Dewey: At school. 1, 2, 3, 4! Malcolm's at your bedroom door!

    • Dewey: The gnome wants to eat me. It's evil.
