Season 5 Episode 13

Lois' Sister

Aired Sunday 8:30 PM Feb 22, 2004 on FOX



  • Trivia

    • Lois has a kidney removed to be donated to her sister. Receiving a transplant, though major surgery, is simple compared to being the donor. Removing a kidney from the donor is a very serious operation because of the care needed to extract the kidney in working order.

    • Goof: When Hal is putting groceries on the table, you can clearly see the cereal box has already been open and was just closed with the tab not sealed as if it were new and just bought!

    • In Company Picnic, Dewey can't metabolise sugar. Then why is he able to eat all that cotton candy?

  • Quotes

    • Susan: Oh, for God's sakes. All right, give me the damn kidney.
      Lois: Thank you.
      Susan: Don't get too excited. You know you were always the big one. We don't even know if it'll fit.

    • Malcolm: Let me ask you something. Do you remember last week, when I said "hello" to you, and you said, "Look what's trying to talk to me"?
      Olivia: Did I?
      Malcolm: So, are you nicer to me now because you realized we have more in common than you thought, or you find our differences intriguing, or because now I have a car.
      Olivia: Uh, probably the car.
      Malcolm: Cool. (to camera) Sometimes I love high school.

    • Lois: Susan, you can't give them a car.
      Malcolm: Mom, technically this is a transaction between Aunt Susan and us.
      Reese: And I'm willing to hire a lawyer to enforce it. You want to go there, I'll go there.

    • Malcolm: This is torture. The car's just sitting there and no one can drive it.
      Reese: Yeah, it's like that hot nun who comes around every year for the toy drive.

    • Reese: You don't understand the power of my brain, Malcolm. It's like a deep ravine that sits in total darkness. But once in a while, just for a moment, a brilliant shaft of light shines directly down into it. And that's the moment I will think of a genius plan that will get us into that Mustang.

    • Susan: Why do you always say "always"? Don't you know how weird that sounds?
      Lois: Don't change the subject! My God, this is the apple turnover all over again.
      Susan: DON'T YOU DARE BRING UP THE APPLE TURNOVER!!!! Screw this, I'm not going to ruin a decade of therapy.
      Lois: I'm talking to you!
      Susan: I am not your puppet!

    • Susan: You actually have me looking forward to the afterlife!
      Lois: Good luck! Dad's there!

    • (holding giant cotton candy)
      Dewey: Everything in my life has led up to this moment.

    • Hal: Boys, please. I know this is hard for you to understand, but you're just going to have to realize that your mom and Susan are crazy. The sooner you learn to accept that, the better.

    • Susan: I brought gifts for the other boys, too.
      Reese: Yes! Sitting here looking interested finally pays off!

    • Francis: There's food all around us. Look - those are edible fungi called truffles.
      Brittany: Those are deer turds.

    • Reese: Hello, 24-hour party people!
