Malcolm in the Middle

Baby (2) - S4-E21

Plot hole: When Jamie is delivered, he's completely clean. Francis's hands are clean too...

Funeral - S1-E11

Plot hole: In this episode Dewey tells Francis that their aunt died from a cat eating her face (or something involving a cat mutilating her face) and we find out this is how she really did die. But then why would it be an open-casket if her face was destroyed?

Suggested correction: Morticians can do fantastic work - this is very common.

Reese Comes Home - S6-E1

Plot hole: If Reese had gone AWOL on his mission, he'd be sent to jail upon returning to America, or at least arrested for using false ID to join the army in the first place.

Kicked Out - S4-E12

Plot hole: Malcolm mentions how his parents would flip if they knew he was still dating his lying girlfriend. But in the episode before (while in the car with Lois, at the end) he mentions how his girlfriend has him guessing what she wants to do. The way he says it, makes it known that he is still dating her. He says it in present tense. Therefore, they already know for sure, from his own mouth.

Surgery - S2-E17

Plot hole: There is no way that Malcolm would have been able to write that message on his stomach. He gets found by the nurse and then we see him in a room getting some medicine and then he is in the operating room.

Suggested correction: Actually before is given some type of sedation before the surgery he is wearing a different hospital gown. He would have had enough time to write the message on his stomach when he was asked to change into the blue gown.

Opening theme song: Yes, no, maybe, I don't know, can you repeat the question? You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big. You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big. Life is unfair.
