Episode Summary

EDIT
The Bully
AIRED:
Reese is suddenly the school hero when he joins the wrestling team, but after he gets thrashed by a girl wrestler, he misses that feeling of pride. He decides to give up being the school bully and instead tries to do many misguided good deeds. The school kids are excited to be out from under the reign of Reese, but Malcolm soon learns that not everyone appreciates his sarcastic comments all the time, and now that his brother is no longer there to protect him, everyone wants to beat up Malcolm because he hurt their feelings. Just as Reese is about to join a feel-good cult, the Krelboynes beg him to regain his crown as school bully because lots of little bullies are causing anarchy. Francis, scared of the school tradition of having every hair shaved from his body on his birthday, begs his parents to fly him home, but they can't afford it. Finally, he thinks he has an out when he injures his hand and the nurse takes pity on him and invites him over to her apartment for birthday cake.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • If you pause at 2:39 and briefly thereafter, you can clearly see that Reese is suspended in the ground to achieve the effect being bent in half. Furthermore, unless a person is well beyond double jointed, being subject to that move would cause incredible damage.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Rick: Remember me? 'Moby Rick'? (sarcastic) That was so hilarious.
      Malcolm: I never called you Moby Rick. I called you Rickapotamus, although...
      (Rick punches him)

    • Malcolm: Those guys are nuts. I'm funny!... Aren't I funny?
      Lloyd: To be honest, you can be a little caustic.
      Stevie: The word... is arrogant.
      Dabney: How about bitter, sarcastic and handsome?
      (Lloyd and Stevie turn to look at him)
      Dabney: (points somewhere) Hey, she's cute.

    • (as Reese is walking in a hospital room)
      Reese: Hi, I'm here to read to you.
      Patient: Oh, when I heard you were coming I just was so excited.
      Reese: Well, they said that terminal patients really get a lift from this.
      (the patient gets a weird look on his face)
      Patient: Terminal?!
      (Reese sits there for a few seconds)
      Reese: You know what, I'm in the wrong room. To think of it, I'm in the wrong hospital.
      Patient: NURSE, NURSE!!!

    • Malcolm: You talking about joining a club, Reese!
      Reese: My name isn't Reese anymore.
      Malcolm: Then what is it?
      Reese: I don't remember, but it's not Reese!

    • Students (chanting): Reese! Reese! Reese!
      (Reese is posing while the principal grabs him)
      Reese: Ah, let go of me... oh, ok I'm going, I'm going!

    • Dewey: Is Reese a girl now?
      Malcolm: No, Dewey, he's a lady.
      Reese: Shut up.
      Malcolm: Sorry, ma'am.

    • Lois: Well, that's not fair! What do they expect him to do, beat up a girl?
      Reese: I get to beat up a girl...cool!

    • Reese: I'm sick of beating up little kids. It's creepy.
