  • Quotes (6)

    • Malcolm: Mom said you ratted on us about Dewey's bike. But she's probably just mixed up, right? Because you're our big brother and you wouldn't do something like that... Francis? Francis: You don't know what kind of pressure I was under. I... Malcolm: (shouts) You butt-wipe! How could you?

    • Malcolm (to Richie): Look, you can burn the house if you want to, or you can just escape like the monosyllabic monkey I know you are. Francis (on phone): What did Malcolm say? Richie: He said a lot of things, but basically we have to tear up the house.

    • Malcolm: I did the smartest thing, I gave it to Dewey. Dewey: And I hid it under Mom's pillow. Malcolm: You what?! (scene skips to Lois looking at the letter and shocked)

    • Dewey: What's your favorite color? Lois: For the third time... green.

    • Reese: I'm really adopted, aren't I? Lois: No, you're ours, and we love you. Reese: Damn!

    • When the boys were on the roof and away from Lois, why didn't Lois just use a ladder to grab them? The boys used a ladder to get on the roof.

    • When they didn't go to school, wouldn't the school call to see what was up since they probably skipped before?

    • Lois has a fever of 104 degrees.

    • When Malcolm is walking on the roof, it's clear that he's played by a stuntman and not Frankie Muniz.
