This is the third time someone is saved by an animal(s) that is associated with Reese. Here, Craig was knocked down by a herd of cows (which were freed by Reese) just when he was about to make the biggest mistake of his life. The first is from Season 4-1 "Zoo," where Malcolm and Dewey were saved from being eaten by tigers when Reese threw the goat he was fighting with into the tigers' den. The next was Season 6-20 "Stilts," where Reese got too wasted from taking too many pills and stole a horse. It saved Malcolm from being beaten up by a former Lucky Aide employee.
