Malcolm takes the yearbook picture seriously after seeing everyone else taking it seriously. He can't seem to get the perfect picture.

    This episode was great! Malcolm's photos were funny! I can't believe Lois spent all the money. This episode gets a 9.5!moreless

    This episode just seems like those episodes of Malcolm that are not really good, Season 7 just counts with few very good episodes, this one is alright but it could have been much better. I hope that the last two episodes of series will be much better than this or other lame episodes of the season.
  • Malcolm hates his pictures, and Lois, Hal, and Dewey takes Malcolm's $10,000 check and wastes it.

    It all starts as Malcolm not wanting to be remembered a geek when he gets his school picture. So it all turns out trash. Meanwhile Lois and Hal discover a check made out for Malcolm for $10,000. They decided to use that money and pay him back but it turns out chaos, even when Dewey wants in. So the money was used on a dollhouse that broke instantly. So all three had to decide how to pay Malcolm back. All they could find was $3,000. And guess what Malcolm used it on...yep, on photos. I hope you're happy, Malcolm. Reese on the other hand, well, he just started liking senior citizens. No biggie. I think this episode was a little above average. A typical dyfunctional family.moreless

  • TRIVIA (5)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Mona: You whore! You stole my husband!
      Judith: No, I just used him without your permission and gave him back to you... Just like someone did with my sewing machine.

    • Malcolm: (seeing his photo on the screen) What did you do to me?! I look like a freak!
      Earl: Kid, that's you. That's what you look like.
      Malcolm: I can't let my grandchildren see me like that! You have to fix it! Put on a special filter, or-or brighter lights... Please, you have to fix it.
      Earl: Sorry, kid. That's the best I can do. I'm a yearbook photographer, not a magician.

    • Reese: This is great. I never knew old people could be nice. I thought you were all wrinkled bags of skin babbling about how stuff used to cost less.
      Judith: No, some are like that, but there's a few of us who still have some life left.

    • Earl: Sorry, pal, you had your chance.
      Malcolm: No! You have to take my picture again! Please! I thought I didn't care what people think of me, but I do. I really do!
      Earl: Look, kid, I'm making 20 cents a head, and re-shoots come out of my pocket. That adds up to "I don't give a crap."
      Malcolm: Don't blame me that you're a no-talent clown who couldn't even cut it at Sears!

    • Reese: Geez, my feet are killing me.
      Nick: I told you, you gotta let the blood drip into your shoes. Once it coagulates, then it's like walking on puffy clouds.
      Reese: Look at all these people, sitting here, just waiting for death.
      Nick: Yeah, I'd like to show those animal rights whackos this place. This is exactly what would happen to cows if it wasn't for us.

    • Dewey: What about this watch, Dad? It's only $12.99.
      Hal: That's where they get you, son. See, it says $12.99, but that doesn't include the hidden costs. Shipping, handling, box tops... by the time you're through, you're paying on the high side of $15. I've never owned a $15 watch.
      Dewey: But I need one, Dad!
      Hal: Son, a cork and a piece of string make a perfectly fine sundial -- and a great conversation piece with the ladies.

    • Reese (referring to one of the nursing home patients): When he has his teeth in, he's quite a looker.

  • NOTES (3)


    • The dollhouse catching fire is very similar to a scene from Friends, in which Phoebe builds a dollhouse and burns down as well.
