Dewey is still lost and gets home by some very strange people. Hal, Lois and the boys get stuck in a traffic jam. Hal is in shock that he wasn't part of the accident. Lois is crazy and wants to get home. Reese wants ice cream from the stubborn ice cream man. Malcolm meets a girl, but is crushed when he finds out she's from Canada. Francis bets that he can eat 100 Quacks and he does...barely. This was a great episode! I liked Dewey's plot! That was funny! I would've been so mad at the ice cream guy! He was cruel! Lois was absolutely crazy! This episode gets a 10! i would recommend everybody should watch this episode if you have not seen it :)
