* RewatchBonus: In Lois Battles Jamie Lois begins to think she is losing her touch when Jamie seems too much for her to handle. After Jaime pushes over the cupboard and almost kills her, she and Hal remember that Francine acted the same way at his age. When Lois regained her confidence, they find that Reese had been giving Jaime 3-4 cans of Kapow soda every day, causing him to go berserk. Lois would feed Francis chocolate every 5 seconds.

Lois: I was stuck in the hospital. Without my baby. Completely isolated. For six weeks. All I could do was lie there, and worry about him, and think about how much he needed me, to nurse him, and to hold him. And when they finally let me out, I run home as fast as I can to take care of poor little Francis, and when I get there, I discover he's happy! He couldn't care less I was gone all that time. You were taking care of him, and he was happy as a clown! I was just an intrusion

* AlternateAesopInterpretation: Many episodes such have Lois being the KryptoniteFactor for Malcolm. Bowling for example literally showed how drastically his abilities drop when she around. Even thatís not the case he often does stupid things because of her presence. So was the final actually meant to be a happy ending? Or LaserGuidedKarma for Lois whose plan guarantee that Malcolm fails in this endeavor


Added DiffLines:

** Was Francise really an EnfantTerrible or was it the result of MustHaveCaffeine do the the fact that Lois kept feeding him chocolate every five seconds. Just like Reese gave Jaime 3-4 cans of Kapow soda every day, causing him to go berserk.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The reveal of how Lois and Fracis antagonist relationship makes this as it basically stated that she is such a ControlFreak that she tortured her child for the first two years of his life because he wasnít miserable outside of her prescience.

* HarsherInHindsight: The man who tried to frame Hal for corporate espionage feared he was dying of cancer and wanted to clear his conscience, only to find out that he wasn't later. Paul Gleeson, who played him, died of cancer a year and a half later.

** In the finale, Malcolm's parents strong-arm him into turning down a six-figure job right out of high school, forcing him to work through college (since they blew a $10,000 college grant that was meant for him), so he'll appreciate the value of hard work. A couple of years after the finale, the economy tanked and not only did college become more expensive that's only affordable with loans that take years to pay off and good paying jobs hard to get, but many recent grads often find themselves working in low-paying jobs despite having a degree; so Hal and Lois' action look incredibly stupid and selfish; parents today would be overjoyed not having to worry about putting their kid through college.
