* {{Determinator}}: Even after having been injured in a car crash, strapped to a stretcher completely immobilized, and heavily sedated, he slinks out of the stretcher and runs back home (and even straps himself to the front of a truck to get home faster) because Lois was giving birth.

[[spoiler:{{Subverted}} when it turns out to simply be a hallucination, while he is really out cold in a hospital bed.]]

* ParentalFavoritism: Towards Susan.

to:

* ParentalFavoritism: Towards Susan. Until Susan called her ungrateful, where she decides that Lois is her favorite child (or at least, the one she hates less).



* RacistGrandma: To the point where Lois and Francis make a plan with their (African-American) friends to get Ida out of their house so Lois could not have her there when she gives birth. It works too, until her waters break. This trope seems to be subverted when Ida reveals she's engaged to a man from Hong Kong, but it turns out she just wanted his money.

Added DiffLines:

* WoundedGazelleGambit: When Lois calls the cops to get Ida out of her house, she cries to the cops that Lois's house is hers, and Francis (whom she claims is Lois's boyfriend) is beating her up. Understandably enraged, Francis yells at her and grabs onto a cop, pleading with him not to believe Ida, which leads to him getting tackled and threatened if he ever lays a finger on Ida.

Added DiffLines:

* YoungestChildWins: Turns out to be a firm beleiver of this and is thus the most immediately devestated of the brothers to learn his parents are pregnant. [[spoiler:That said, he is apparently the one kid his parents picture growing up enjoying an easy life of wealth.]]

* TheUnfavorite: Lois' leniency towards him is revealed to be because he's the child she has the ''lowest'' opinion about, citing his overall incompetence as justification for him needing all the help she can provide. She would even "sell Malcolm down the river" to save Reese because she reasons that Malcolm would be smart enough to fend for himself and find a way out of whatever predicament he had been shunted into.

to:

* TheUnfavorite: Impressively averted. Despite Reese being a delinquent, stupid, slacking D-student who causes more trouble than all his siblings combined (which is saying something), Lois doesn't treat him any worse than she treats Malcolm, the family prodigy. In fact, when a SadistTeacher tries to blackmail her by claiming she's never risk Malcolm's reputation to save Reeses's, rather than dismiss Reese for being a failure, she claims she would throw Malcolm under the bus for Reese in a heartbeat because Malcolm can always take care of himself, while Reese needs to be protected. The sadist teacher's skepticism is destroyed when Lois' leniency towards him is revealed firstborn Francis suddenly shows up and begs her to be because he's the child she has the ''lowest'' opinion about, citing his overall incompetence as justification for him needing all the help she can provide. She would even "sell Malcolm down the river" to save Reese because she reasons that Malcolm would be smart enough to fend for himself and find a way out of whatever predicament he had been shunted into.let back in.
