Malcolm in the Middle

Kicked Out - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Malcolm's seat belt changes from on to off the first scene with him and his mom in the car. When it's a shot from the front it's on, but when it's a shot from the side (from the driver's/mom side) you can see that the part of the seat belt that's going across is now behind Malcolm, instead of on him like it was a second ago. This changes back and forth.

Baby (2) - S4-E21

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

Suggested correction: Yes, but only so Frankie, Jane, Bryan, Erik, etc. don't see his business.

Stupid Girl - S4-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Hal is driving the steamroller at night alone in the car park - just before Dewey shows up - in the first shot there is a crewmen standing smiling in shorts to the side of the roller who then slowly walks out of view.

Baby (2) - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When Hal is in the hospital and is trying to get up and leave, he has three straps holding him down. We see him unbuckling the top two, but he leaves the bottom one. In the next shot, the strap is unbuckled.

Stereo Store - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: In the escape scene when Hal runs out the store his boss presses a button to lower the shutters. This causes the pencils to fall out of the cup but in the next shot the pencils are back in the cup and roll off the table into the fan.

Zoo - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Tarantula is put on Hal at the zoo, the shot is only of a yellow shirt with the tarantula crawling on it. When the shot changes to where they show the whole Hal, you can easily tell that the tarantula is fake - it is larger than it was and is in a different spot on Hal's shirt.

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.

Humilithon - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Hal starts to fight with Lionel with the mop at the school when Hal turns his back you can see it is wet from the mop a few scenes before he hit them and then the frame before Lionel strikes Hal with the mop his shirt is dry again. (00:17:05)

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.
