Trivia

This is the only episode, aside from the Pilot to make mention of the last name of Malcolm and his family. However, in this episode, it's not mentioned to be Wilkerson. The family's name is revealed to be "Nolastname", which is a joke on "No last name". The name is seen on Francis' name tag for his new job. It is unknown which one of these last names is meant to be considered canon. See more »

Goofs

Reese tries to make a mess that will take 30 days to clean up, but instead he could have just made a huge mess on the 29th day, so they would have to keep him the extra few days. See more »

It didn't do the show justice but it is still OK
17 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

I know this is the second highest rated episode but I didn't find it that good. It wraps up everything well, but I didn't really feel it did the show the justice that it deserved. I liked all the ideas that it delivered, it is just that I felt like something was missing. I do love when Lois finds out she is pregnant again though, that made me laugh so hard
