    Malcolm and the family join Stevie's family on their houseboat for a summer trip. But nothing goes right:

    Dewey gets severely sun burnt.
    Lois and Hal find Kitty and Abe boring and think they are too rude
    The boys all want to just get out and go find some hot girls.

    Back at Marlin Academy, Francis is absolutely sick of the way he has been treated, and decides he needs a change. But what kind of change? At the end of the episode everything is back to normal, except one little thing: Francis has been emancipated, which sets the stage for the next episode
