Malcolm has the chance of a highly lucrative career in computer software, but the offer is blocked by his parents, who have higher goals in mind for him - as the first US President to actually understand the plight of the underdog. Fate also has a big surprise turn in store for Lois and Hal.
Did You Know?
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
