* When Hal and Lois went away for the weekend, the boys tried to have a house party, only for it to lead into their garage being taken over by a drug-making gang led by Francis' old friend Donnie. After every other attempt at getting Richie and the others to leave fails, Dewey reveals that he went and told the mothers of everyone in the gang about what they were doing. Donnie laughs at this... until his mom shows up, tells him to knock it off and that it's time to go home. One of his partners starts laughing at Donnie, and then ''his'' mom shows up, followed by an army of mothers ordering their sons to stop what they're doing and come home.

** There another Awesome moment right after Malcolm is declared winner. Reese does not want to give up on the girl Ida had [[ArrangedMarriage promised]] to the winner and gives a rather heartwarming speech to her. The girl decides to go for Reese and tells Ida off, stating how she is an American girl now. She has an [=iPod=]. She wears a thong. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking She shaves her armpits]]!

* After a teacher forces Malcolm to embarrass Reese via secret video surveillance (which ends up spreading through the whole school), Malcolm fights back the only way he can: he barricades himself into the school radio room á la ''Literature/HarrisonBergeron'', grabs everyone’s permanent records, and announces everyone's embarrassing secrets over the intercom to humiliate everyone as an "apology" for humiliating Reese. During the next day of school, everyone appears hesitant to so much as speak to one another -- except for Reese, who gleefully walks around and talks about everyone's secrets to their faces.
** Said teacher (SmugSnake and {{Jerkass}} extraordinaire Mr. Herkabe) pulls a similar stunt in his last appearance by humiliating Reese in an attempt to blackmail Malcolm. This time, though, Malcolm gives Herkabe himself some sweet payback by arranging a dodgeball session pitting him against Reese. Malcolm walks away satisfied as Herkabe feebly tries to use his smart mouth to [[BreakThemByTalking break him by talking]] while Reese and the other students in the background gleefully and repeatedly bounce dodgeballs off him hard enough to rebound against the gymnasium's vaulted ceiling.

* ''Monkey'': After spending the entire episode trying to prove he's a {{Badass}} after failing to the stop the burglar, Hal manages to save Craig from the AxCrazy monkey by trapping it under a trash can. To put this in perspective, the monkey was about to stab Craig ''with a knife''.

* Malcolm has had it with everyone thinking he's a loser, so he plans to drive his mother's car into his father's car in the middle school parking lot to earn a badass reputation. Cynthia is trying and failing to stop him, telling him that it doesn't matter what people think. But it's not working. So rather than have him ruin his life, she says, loudly: "If you do this, I'm not going to have sex with you again." Cue his instant Sex-God reputation, and her "slut" reputation. Malcolm gets out of the car.

* The main plot of "Pearl Harbor" is definitely this. At first it seems silly that Hal is competing with a neighbor who always outdoes him in Christmas decorations every year. Hal instead decides to decorate the house in honor of Pearl Harbor day, since December 7th is not that far from Christmas. His neighbor, being the JerkAss he is, decides to construct a better decoration for Pearl Harbor. Hal and Dewey decide to clean out the bait shops and put worms all over the decorations. The next morning, the neighbor wakes up to dozens of blackbirds emerging like the Japanese fighters and laying waste to his yard to get to the worms, and pelting him with feces. Ultimate revenge indeed!
* Stevie got his in the episode Dinner Out. He, Malcolm and Reese play the circle game, and Reese constantly tricks Stevie in a number of clever ways, resulting in Stevie being punched repeatedly. After a while, Stevie appears to concede defeat, and goes off crying. Reese, feeling guilty, follows him... only to look through the watercooler and see Stevie on the other side, making the sign. He then punches Reese so hard he knocks him FLYING, and when he pretends to offer to help him up, he shows Reese the sign AGAIN. Then, with a cry of [[PreAssKickingOneLiner "Reap... the whirlwind!"]] he grabs Reese by the shirt and punches him repeatedly. Game set.

* [[EvilMatriarch Grandma Ida's]] crowning moment also happens to double as the only decent thing she has ever done in her entire life. When she realizes that Dewey is about to be hit by a truck, without even stopping to think about it, she clamps her cigarette in her teeth and runs to push him out of the way, losing a leg in the process. [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome While some truly awesome reggae plays]].

* Seems like everyone gets one except Dewey. Well, how about this? There's the episode where he makes a full-sized pipe organ out of things he found around the house, and plays "Orpheus in the Underworld" on it. It's a decent CrowningMusicOfAwesome too.

** This works just as much as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming as it is one of Awesome -- and it also leads into Lois treating her daughter-in-law Piama with a lot more courtesy and respect (a small [=CMOA=] of its own).

* The episode "Billboard" may count as a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Episode Of Awesome]]. To elaborate: The boys get caught in the act of drawing graffiti on a billboard of a half-naked woman by Lois, who demands that they come down immediately. Malcolm claims that they're protesting sexism, which grows popular with women who were nearby (but doesn't fool Lois one bit). The awesome begins when Malcolm and Dewey become disgusted by Reese's blatant misogyny and shun him -- until Reese has a dream about a giant woman explaining to him that the women he fantasizes about aren't real. This leads to Reese having an epiphany about real women and what they deserve. As Lois finally manages to trick the police commissioner into getting the boys down, Reese delivers an inspiring (though hardly eloquent) speech about feminism. Though Lois is still planning on some harsh punishment, she's clearly proud that Reese has learned a lesson.

* When a kid at Dewey's school nominates two kids from Dewey's sped class, Hansen and Zoe, for student body president as a joke, Hansen decides to throw the election by intentionally giving himself a seizure before delivering his speech. When it's time to give his speech, he goes into a violent fit of [[ClusterFBomb coprolalia.]] Instead of sabotaging the election for him, however, it causes the whole school to chant his name.

* In ''Baby Part 1'', Lois, Francis, and Piama conspire to get Ida out of the house before the baby is born by using her racism against her. Basically, Lois flaunts all their black friends (Hal's poker buddies) to a horrified and speechless Ida, making it quite clear they can come by the house any time they want. The clincher is when one actually hits on her ("''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny ...I looove that wagon you draggin'!]]''"), causing her to run out of the room screaming her head off. Of course, this gets subverted moments later when Lois's water breaks just as Ida was about to leave.
** In ''Baby Part 2'', Ida comments that one of Lois's black friends could pass for white with some make-up. He begins to explain how he makes more money in a week than she probably has her whole life, he has a nice house and a wonderful family and is pretty much better than her. Ida's response? "Big deal, so you're a drug dealer." His response? "[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Booga booga booga!]]" Ida runs off screaming ''again''.
