Continuity mistake: When Lois hangs up on Francis before saying "Oh, I love you," it seems as though the line is already disconnected (as can be heard from the dial tone from Francis' side), but in a later shot, Malcolm and Reese are just about to hang up the phone.

Continuity mistake: When the "Krelborne" teacher comes to the house to tell Lois that Malcolm is gifted, Lois comes to the door naked and puts her arm up on the doorway. On the shot from behind she has her hand low (about where her waist is) from the shot from the front she has her hand up high (above her head).

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lois and Hal tell Malcolm he is going to the "special class", Hal notes that the pitcher of iced-tea he makes is always empty, and says, "Look at that - gone," before placing the lid back onto the pitcher. Yet, when it cuts to the wide shot of the table, the pitcher lid is by Hal's elbow.
