Malcolm in the Middle

Robbery - S2-E7

Other mistake: The book Reese is sawing through in the background, while Malcom is talking into the camera, is already cut in half and the saw is not sawing anything. Then they cut to Reese about 7 seconds later as he actually saws the book in half. (00:02:13)

Show generally

Other mistake: When it is Dewey's birthday Malcom grabs a piece of the cake. It goes to Dewey then back to Malcom and he is chewing, but there is no bite in the cake.

Halloween Approximately - S2-E2

Other mistake: In the scene where boys are loading eggs into their slingshots, one of the eggs misses and falls on the roof, but doesn't break. A real egg would have broken.

Red Dress - S1-E2

Other mistake: Reese is playing a Game Boy without a game in the slot.

Emancipation (2) - S3-E2

Other mistake: In this episode Malcolm's new teacher begins a league table for the Krelboyne class, and since Malcolm shows that he is better than the whole class, the teacher creates a new highest rank for him which he calls "1 to the 11". However mathmatically, "1 to the 11" is still 1, so it seems rather strange that the teacher would go the trouble, and that none of the class would notice this.

Casino - S2-E5

Other mistake: At the beginning of the episode when they are driving in the car, the door is opened to make room for the camera outside but the opening is visible in shot. (01:49:00)

Carnival - S2-E23

Other mistake: Malcolm, Reese, Dewey and Stevie attempt to get on the Chamber of Horrors ride but are told it is closed and sent away. The next time we come back to them they are riding the ride.

Lois Battles Jamie - S6-E8

Other mistake: When Reese lights the fuse for the fireworks, Malcolm says the fuse is timed for 20 seconds. When the diving board collapses on Reese, it is around 30 seconds after the fuse is lit before the fireworks start.

Red Dress - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Dewey yells for Lois because the bow was put on the present, if you look to the left of Lois, you will see a crewmember kneeling down, handing Lois the red dress, who is holding a bucket of water. He quickly gets out of the camera's view. [This is on the DVD of the first season. Someone said on the audio commentary that after catching it, they deliberately left it in to see if anyone would spot it. It's still a mistake, but that's why it's there.]

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.
