Malcolm gets the chance to perform at a high-school play in the lead role, leaving his friends alone with their secret project. But hanging out with high-school kids and their constant exchange of useless information has quite an impact on Malcolm's mental abilities. Lois finds herself with twenty five unexpected free minutes left on her schedule, which she uses for a massage, relaxing for the first time in her life. Hal and Dewey build a giant city out of Lego, while Francis tries to fight Commandant Spangler's tyranny with flower power. Written by
