Lois only leaves it up when she learns a racist coworker wants it taken down because she's sick of recent influx of black customers.

** Another episode has Lois try to get a confession out of the boys by torturing them with obnoxious children's music (actually provided by TheyMightBeGiants in StylisticSuck mode). They try to feign enjoyment of the song and start dancing and singing along - which backfires when Lois breaks out a video camera.

* {{Revenge}}: In ''Malcolm vs. Reese'', when Francis decides to take a girl to the wrestling match over his own two siblings who so badly wanted to go with him and needless to say, neither Malcolm nor Reese are pleased with that ''at all'' given that they've spent all of the episode busting their asses for Francis to win the chance to go with him. How do they take vengeance on him for this? It starts by having Francis reading a note warning him that [[LaserGuidedKarma he will pay for what he did]] while driving him and his date to the event. Francis blows it off, and then a cop pulls Francis over because the car had been reported stolen. When asked for ID and registration, Francis cannot provide because it was replaced with another Post-It note saying [[FromBadToWorse it gets worse]]. Banging is then heard from Francis's trunk, and the cop finds Malcolm and Reese hog-tied and gagged in there. This causes the cop to apprehend Francis and put a stop to his date.
