"Malcolm in the Middle: Krelboyne Picnic (#1.8)" (2000)
[talking about Malcolm's class picnic]
Malcolm: There won't be any meat. They all decided they didn't want to eat anything that has a mother.
Dewey: Cousin Nancy doesn't have a mother.
Lois: That's right. She has two daddies.
Reese: Two guys as your parents? That house has to be a dude's paradise.

Dewey: Is Malcolm a robot?
Hal: [sighs] No, son. He's just very, very, very, very, very smart.

Hal: Dewey, what did I tell you about raw meat?
Dewey: [mouth full of raw meat] I'm not.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Reese Drives (#3.13)" (2002)
Malcolm: Why do we have to get dressed like this? It's Reese's hearing.
Lois: 'Cause when the judge looks over at us, I want him to see that Reese comes from a respectable family that loves him very much.
Dewey: Why aren't they trying him as an adult?

Lois: Just let me talk to him, and I can end this in five minutes.
Sgt. Rowdy: I'm sorry, ma'am, I don't think that's a good idea. We have trained psychologists to handle kids in these situations. We know how they think.
Lois: Think? My son doesn't think. He's just driving around in circles. He's made three laps around this city already.
Hal: [watching the TV coverage] There's our drycleaner again.
Dewey: [handing the officer a nude baby snapshot] Here's another picture of my brother you can show on TV.
Lois: Just get him on the phone and let me handle this. I'm the only one who knows how.
Sgt. Rowdy: Trust me, we have this under control.
Lois: [spitting angry] Don't think I don't know what's gonna happen. You're gonna do your standard police thing and my son is going to get killed in a hail of gunfire.
Sgt. Rowdy: Ma'am, that almost never happens.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Lois vs. Evil (#1.9)" (2000)

"Malcolm in the Middle: Dewey's Dog (#3.17)" (2002)
Doctor: [after Dewey's stomach pump] He's fine. We didn't find any candles, but we did find some marbles. And the waistband to a pair of underpants.
Dewey: Don't ask.

Reese: What am I thinking?
Malcolm: I'm smart, not psychic.
Dewey: Can you understand dogs?
Malcolm: No.
Dewey: [smiles] I can.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Charity (#3.5)" (2001)
Mrs. Potts: [Lois forces the boys to do charity work for the Church, where their supervisor thanks and encourages them] You boys should be so proud of yourselves. A lot of people are really going to appreciate what you're doing. You know, I'm going to say a special prayer for you.
Dewey: [sarcastically] Yeah. That should make us even.

Malcolm: [Malcolm addresses the audience] I've been lying here thinking about God. I don't know much, just that He's this all-powerful, all-knowing being, kinda like Mom, only invisible. So, I feel better being on His good side for awhile. And you know what? We probably all spend a little too much of our lives focusing on material things.
Reese: [sees Dewey, kneeling, hands together] What are you doing?
Dewey: Praying.
Reese: No you're not. He's got chocolate.
Malcolm: *Get him!*


"Malcolm in the Middle: Day Care (#4.22)" (2003)
Dewey: [to the Bible teacher Helen] Like Pastor Roy said, how God is so much bigger and wiser than us, and trying to see what He's thinking would be like an ant trying to see what I'm thinking.
Helen: Yes, exactly. But we can trust in His wisdom, and have faith that He is watching over us.
Dewey: Like me with the anthill in my backyard. I spent days watching the ants, trying to figure out which ones were good, and which ones were bad, but they all just looked like ants, so I started smiting all of them.
Helen: Well that's not -
Dewey: I was smiting them with the garden hose, and with lighter fluid, and with the lawnmower, and to be perfectly honest, I think I went a little crazy with the shovel. Those ants could have been praying to me all day, I wouldn't have heard them.
[ponders]
Dewey: There was nothing they could do about it.
Helen: But, I don't think -
Dewey: Really, it's the same with us. There's nothing we can do about anything either, so why worry about it? Hey, this is making me feel better.
Helen: Well, that's good, but -
Dewey: I guess all we can do is live our lives with as much kindness and decency as possible, and try not to dwell on God standing over us with a giant shovel. Bye!

Reese: This will be the most magnificent day of my life. I plan to float above the clouds and experience the joy that only birds can know.
Dewey: You're going to fry yourself on high voltage wires.
Reese: I'm not afraid. I have faith in my vision. I love you, Dewey.
[Starts to float off]
Reese: This is incredible! I can see the top of Dad's car from here!
Dewey: I'll miss you at first! No, I'M as surprised as you are. No, I'm as SURPRISED as you are. No, I'm as surprised as YOU are.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Grandma Sues (#4.9)" (2003)
Dewey: [to Grandma Ida] We'll miss you.
Grandma Ida: Even the little one lies!

Dewey: All I ever had was being the youngest. Now I won't even have that.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Garage Sale (#4.15)" (2003)
Dewey: Malcolm, in school we learned the coolest thing: there were these people that did this broadcast to convince everyone that aliens were landing. So what we do is wait for Reese to fall asleep, then we flash some lights outside his window then we go to the TV, but we'll have already made a tape...
Malcolm: Dewey, you're totally over-thinking this. Reese, aliens landed down the street!
Reese: [Runs in wearing a helmet and carrying a bat] Every man for himself!

Dewey: That's my piggy bank. That was in my room.
Reese: Relax, dipwad. I got two bucks for it.
Dewey: It had sixteen dollars in it.
Reese: Waa-waa. Spilt milk.

Lois: I know honey, you're a good boy. Stop playing with yourself.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Hal Quits (#2.14)" (2001)

Dewey: Ragina Tucker.
Reese: Hmm, we'll think of something.

Dewey: Mom, dad, guess what? The tooth fairy came.
Lois: He did?
Hal: Oh, so what'd he give you? A couple dollars?
Dewey: I got a rock and a half a stick of gum.
Lois: Malcolm. Reese.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Old Mrs. Old (#2.11)" (2001)
Reese: Kids like me are dreaming about something like this. We look around the playground, we see normal kid, normal kid, and a kid with a purse. Who do you think's gonna get creamed.
Dewey: Is one of the normal kids fat?
Reese: It doesn't matter. He's gonna be fat every day, but the kid with the purse, he might not wear it again.

Reese: Hey, Dewey. You know I never gave you anything for your birthday?
Dewey: Yeah.
Reese: Well. Here.
[gives him a backpack]
Reese: Happy birthday!
Dewey: I already have a backpack.
Reese: Not like this one. See this one has a whistle. Why are you flinching? I'm trying to give you something nice.
Dewey: But I'm not gonna take it.
Reese: Here, just hold it.
Dewey: No.
Reese: [pushes Dewey in his mattress] Why won't you let me do something nice? You're gonna wear this and there's nothing you can do about it!


"Malcolm in the Middle: Surgery (#2.17)" (2001)
Hal: Dewey, don't be scared, but there is a big spider next to you.
Dewey: Yeah dad, there's always a spider on bacon day.
Malcolm: [to the camera] You know, I'm not feeling that good. I could give Dad some of mine, but that's not really in the true spirit of Bacon Day.

Dewey: [the family is playing the board game March and Conquer] Guess what? We look just like the family on the box.
Hal: Oh, yeah.
Dewey: Can I be the little girl?
Hal: Not on my watch, son.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Kicked Out (#4.12)" (2003)
Hal: [Discipline is suffering while Lois is away at her sister's] You crossed the line, mister. And until further notice, there will be no TV, no computer and no video games, because I am at zero tolerance with you boys. Did you just roll your eyes at me? As long as you are living in this house, I demand your respect.
Malcolm: For what? This house is a pig sty. Everything in the fridge is expired. I found a piece of cake in the shower!
Dewey: That's mine!

Dewey: [the boys are watching TV after their bedtime] How come she's allowed to be naked on the kitchen table, and I'm not?
Reese: Dewey, if a cop tells you to do something, you do it.
Hal: [Enter Hal] What are you boys doing? I told you to go to bed hours ago.
Reese: Actually, Dad, your exact words were just, 'Go to bed'. You didn't say, 'Go to bed now.' If you leave us a loophole like that, I don't see how this can be our fault.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Reese Comes Home (#6.1)" (2004)
Malcolm: I can't believe he could really be gone.
Dewey: I know. Wow, this diaper's gotta be a 5-pounder!
Malcolm: I'd like to think Jamie knew what it was for. It's so weird. It seems like all my life I wished that something horrible would happen to Reese. And now that is has I... I...
Dewey: Miss him?
Malcolm: Yeah.
Dewey: I do, too. Remember when he shaved my eyebrows and glued them back on so I looked permanently surprised? That was genius.
Malcolm: Remember the pure joy he got on Christmas morning when he was smashing our presents? No matter how hard I tried, I could never make Mom's face turn to that special purple color... Reese purple.

Dewey: Maybe we honor Reese the wrong way. Reese wasn't into helping people and doing good deeds. He loved to smash things and destroy stuff for no reason. If we want to honor Reese, maybe we should think about doing it his way.
Malcolm: You have something in mind?
Dewey: [shows him a brochure] This kind of caught my eye.
Malcolm: An art fair?
Dewey: Just think what Reese would have done with it. They've got fold dancing, dream catchers, face-painting...
Malcolm: They are kind of begging for it. I don't know...
Dewey: And rapping grannies.
Malcolm: Let me see that!


"Malcolm in the Middle: Evacuation (#2.24)" (2001)
Hal: Dewey, want to go with me to take the old couch to the dump?

Hal: Last time I was there, I saw a forty-pound seagull carry off a dog in its beak!
Dewey: *Wow!*

Reese: Why would you want to go to the ice rink? It's cold there.
Dewey: But they have good hotdogs.
Reese: No, they suck! The ones at the train station are the good ones.

Reese: Those people are small-minded idiots who have no idea what we're trying to do.
Dewey: What *are* we trying to do?
Reese: I don't know. I kind of had this vision of me riding him through town, knocking over cars. But that's probably not realistic.


"Malcolm in the Middle: Forbidden Girlfriend (#4.6)" (2002)
Reese: Dewey. I finally found out why everybody's been giving you money. There's this kid who looks just like you and he's been doing chores for everybody. I knew that everybody must have an evil twin.
Dewey: He's my evil twin?
Reese: No, Dewey, this kid's a saint. You're his evil twin.
