During the argument between Dewey and Reese in the front room, Dewey is lying on the sofa reading a copy of "The Jester."
As of this episode, Malcolm chooses Harvard as his college.
Francis mentions that he's training a possum, the fifth time the family has had some sort of dealing or another with a possum.
Lois is seen dabbing Dewey's eyes with milk after she gets the hot sauce in them. This actually works. The milk neutralizes the acid in the hot sauce, reducing the stinging.
When Ida is explaining the competition to the boys, there is a bottle of wine on the table and when the shots change, the cork is on or off.
Hal is able to cash Malcolm's check. A parent can actually do this. Unless mandated otherwise by a judge, parents can cash and keep all of a child's wages as long as they live under their roof or turn 18, whichever comes first.
Reese has gotten his job at the meat packing plant after seeming to have lost it last season.
Lois rubs Malcolm's money against her cheeks exactly how Malcolm did with his own money in "Malcolm Babysits" back in season one.
This is the SECOND on-air time that Lois and Hal have stolen from Malcolm. The first was in last year's Christmas episode when Hal stole his credit card to pay for a ski trip.
Malcolm's new check is for $3,857.
This is not Lois' first storyline where she had trouble getting rid of someone who kept stalking her... however, this time it didn't end in a mud fight like in "Company Picnic."
Herkabe had the highest GPA in the whole school, although he was much less deserving than Edna Thornby, the previous one, or Malcolm, who likely will gain that distinction at the end of this season.
This is the second time that Hal has been arrested. The first was in "Reese Joins the Army (1)". Combined with Lois, the parents have been arrested FIVE times! And they thought the kids were bad.
It is revealed that Reese is a virgin.
Hal says that he could only find the Japanese version of the washing machine repair manual. However, in the episode "Chad's Sleepover," Lois shows that she saves every scrap of paperwork from all appliances.
Abby tells Lois that she loved the story Reese told her about him being made to cut the lawn with manicure scissors. This is actually considered child abuse by today's standards.
Abby mentions a possum. This is the fourth time the family has had problems with a possum.
Lois tells Hal that she learned that men can get yeast infections. This is actually true.
When Dewey is pestering Malcolm by saying 'I want my money' over and over again, Malcolm tells him to shut up. Dewey then hits playback on the tape recorder on the desk, which starts playing the same message without needing to be rewound.
During Tucker's converstaion with Lois in the garden, the American flag patch on her right shoulder was backwards.
