  • Good!!

    Malcolm finds a girlfriend, Nicki. They have to secretly go out as their parents don't approve of them. Reese finds out that a boy who looks just like Dewey lives near. Dewey is getting money from what the other boy does and Reese has a master plan. Lois and Hal can't have sex for a week because of Lois's perscription medicine. They actually get things done though. Francis and Otto have a disagreement with two other ranchers. There is a fence that Otto wants up, but it's keeping the other ranchers from having their cows drink water. Francis comes up with the idea of a gate. Hal and Lois finally have sex and the house is all dirty again.

    This episode was great! Nicki's dad was sort of frightening. I think that's what a married couple should be like. This episode gets a 9.5!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Francis' ringtone is the tune to the children's song "Knick Knack Patty Whack."

      Knick knack patty whack give a dog a bone, this old man came rolling home. This old man, he played none, he played knick knack on my thumb. With a knick knack patty whack give a dog a bone, this old man came rolling him.

    • In Latin America, Chris Masterson's translating voice changed, but only for this episode.

    • Reagan Dale Neis also played Laura in "Evacuation".

    • Nicki's dad makes mention of being tied to a "Punjab stick" in Vietnam. He likely means a punji stick, a spike usually made out of wood or bamboo placed upright in the ground. It is a crude anti-personnel device, not something you tie a person to.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (Reese has discovered the existence of Billy Prescott, Dewey's look-alike.)
      Reese: It's common knowledge, Dewey, that every person on this planet has an evil twin.
      Dewey: He's my evil twin?
      Reese: Fat chance! The guy's a saint. You're his evil twin.

    • Reese: There's money and an evil twin. If we can't figure out to make this pay off, there is something deeply wrong with us.

    • Nicki's Dad: Just remember, me and my friends put our asses on the line, just so you could study trigonometry.

    • Nicki's Dad: (face really red) Alright hot shot, consider this your one and only warning. You are never, ever, allowed to see my daughter again!! Is that clear?!?

    • Nicki's Dad: Get your filthy lips off my daughters face!

  • NOTES (2)

    • This is the first episode to feature recurring character, Nicki (Reagan Dale Neis).

    • Cold Open: Hal and Lois are watching the weather, but since it's not raining, they realize it's a tape, so they take it out, put on the news, and automatically know their boys are responsible for the destruction seen.
