    Dewey has the chicken pox, so he must stay home. He builds a big domino track and Hal wants to push it really badly. Meanwhile, Malcolm and his fellow Krelboynes accidentally misuse the chemistry set and they must go to real school for a while. The Krelboynes separate into cliques. Dabney joins the jocks, Lloyd joins the goths, Kevin joins the posers, and Stevie joins the skaters. Madness errupts, so Malcolm tries to stop it. It ends up getting all the Krelboynes beat. Reese won't let Hal push the dominos. After Dewey cleans them up, Hal is upset, so he builds another one and wants to video tape it. It knocks down without him there and he misses it. Francis learns that part of their house is on Native ground, so he builds a mini casino. He and Piama fight, but they quickly make up.



    This episode was great! I loved the domino sequence! I would hate to be Hal and miss it. The cliques that the Krelboynes were put into sort of fit. This episode gets a 10!moreless

    What a cool episode! Malcolm and the rest of the Krelboynes are forced to get with the rest of the school population, at first they are afraid, but later they manage to fit in, in different type of groups, which soon begins as battle between the different groups of the school and that makes things worse. This episode is really cool and I think that is one of the best episodes, is really funny, and really cool!moreless

  • 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.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • 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!
