We never get to find out what Reese did that was so horrible, the only clues being there might have been an evacuation, it happens all the time in third-world countries according to Reese, and there were cats involved for an unknown reason.
Jack McGee also appeared in Season 4-7 "Malcolm Holds His Tongue" as Malcolm's basketball coach. In this episode, he was the school's football coach. He also didn't believe Malcolm when he said he didn't mind gym, but in Season 4's episode, Malcolm made the basketball team which he was in charge of.
Ira played by Jonny Acker, whom Malcolm had to help with his college application essays, also appeared previously in two other episodes. Season 5-5 "Malcolm Films Reese" as a high school kid who spent his summer in theatre camp and Season 4-6 "Forbidden Girlfriend" as a tough high school jock.
Malcolm: Stanford liked your essay?!
Ira: No, I forgot to put it in the envelope. I got in anyway. But don't worry, that essay didn't go to waste. I handed it in as my math midterm and got an "A".
Francis: (on the phone with Lois) Hi, I just got off the phone with your son, Reese. It's been over a week and you still haven't talked to him. Congratulations! The fraction of the family is now 2/5ths complete!
Francis: (on the phone with Lois) All I know is that you have a child that needs you!
Dewey: (on the other line) No, he doesn't! He's happy where he is and so are we!
Lois: Dewey! Get off the phone!
(Dewey hangs up)
Lois: You've been using credit cards? How much have you spent?
Reese: Ten... eleven grand.
Hal: How could you spend that much in 10 days?
Reese: Well, I got the new convection oven and it made the refrigerator look shabby. Plus, I had to buy new clothes everytime they get dirty. And that giant gong in the bathroom... I mean, how do you guys do it?
(Lois pulls Reese's ear)
Reese: (gets dragged by Lois by the ear) Ow! You're gonna drag me all the way home?
Hal: Well, we're taking your ear there. If the rest of you wants to come, that fine, too.
Reese: Francis, this is Teddy, Lou, and George. (points) Divorced, separated, wife's doing the best friend.
George: Ex-best friend. (sobs) Excuse me. (leaves)
Teddy: Hey, is that a wedding ring?
Teddy: Start saving the money, friend.
Dr. Lucille Armstrong: I've been in therapy for a long time. There's nothing that can shock me.
Lois: (thinks for a moment) Alright. Last week, Reese...
Dr. Lucille Armstrong: Oh, my God! What were the cats for?
Hal: We don't know.
Hal: If Reese is unhappy, he brought it on himself.
Francis: Really? So what's this like the tenth time he's "brought in on himself"? And, let's see, Malcolm's "brought in on himself" six times. So with my 28 times, that makes... 40 kickouts, three different kids and the only constant through all of this is you two.
Lois: Francis, that is not fair.
Francis: So when's Dewey going to "bring it on himself"? When's Jamie? Where is Jamie?
Lois: He's at the babysitter's.
Hal: Just 'til 5.
Hal: (upset) NOOOOO... COMPLAIN... YEEELLLLLL... USSSSSSS!!!!!
(Hal speaking angry gibberish)
Lois: (looks at Hal) Was that scramble or strangle?
Reese: What are you guys talking about?
Lois: (to Reese) You know what we're talking about! Last week, you...
Reese: I can name third-world countries where stuff like that happens all the time!
Malcolm: What's wrong with Dad?
Lois: Your father found out what Reese did.
Malcolm: What did he do?
Lois: Your brother...
Malcolm: Oh, my God! Did they have to evacuate?!
Lois: Alright. Reese...
Hal: (upset) That... (speaks gibberish)
Francis: And now Reese is living in that apartment with his cable TV and huge stack of video games... miserable!
Francis: The minute a child is inconvient to you, you kick him out!
Lois: Francis, this is none of your business. You don't live here anymore!
Francis: Because you kicked me out!
Malcolm: Name one thing you fear.
Ira: Spiders. No... waffles!
Malcolm: (sees the apartment) Whoa! This place is awesome!
Dewey: One thing's for sure, I'd never ever leave this place.
Francis: Who's apartment is this?
Reese: It's mine.
Francis: Reese, you can't live in a place like this!
Reese: Yeah, I can.
Malcolm: (to the camera) Stanford. Poor guy. I bet he doesn't know it has the third best astrophysics department in the country.
Francis: (to Reese) Mom and Dad did something horrible to you and you can't let them get away with it. You don't belong here. You belong at home.
Reese: Alright, give me one good reason why my life would be better if I was still at home.
(Francis is about to say something, but is blank; the scene changes to Malcolm, Francis, & Dewey leaving Reese's apartment)
Malcolm: I thought the "toilet seat never needs warming" arguement was pretty good.
Malcolm: Oh boy. In this family, that's what we call "the closer." We now know that Reese is definitely not living here for the next few days. The only question left is who gets to take the credit.
Reese: YES! Tie goes to the runner.
Coach Oleski: When a football player doesn't do something, someone else does it for them. The cheerleaders understand that!
Cold Open: Lois and Hal check in on the boys and see Dewey "asleep" with a magazine, his finger pointing to a gift he wants for his birthday. They say he can't afford it, so he moves his finger. They say he can have that one if he loses his birthday party. He moves his finger one more time and Lois and Hal agree that it is a good gift and that he will be surprised.
Although "Lois' Sister" was called the 100th episode by Fox, this episode is the real 100th episode, both in filming order and airing order.
In syndication, the scene of Reese watching TV in his bedroom while listening to his neighbor is cut out completely.
As of this episode, Justin Berfield gains the distinction of being the only child actor under the age of eighteen to film 100 episodes of two different television shows ("Unhappily Ever After" and "Malcolm").
This episode was filmed the week of February 2 to February 7, 2004.
The coach calls Malcolm Brainiac. Brainiac is a property of DC Comics, and one of Superman's archenemies. In addition to his goal of assimilating all life into knowledge, he is massively intelligent.
