"Malcolm in the Middle" Lois Battles Jamie (TV Episode 2005) Poster

Bryan Cranston: Hal


  • Lois : [about Jamie]  He's absolutely the worst kid we have ever had!

    Hal : Oh, you say that with every kid. Let's face it, Lois. It's just the hand we were dealt. God just doesn't like us. That doesn't make us bad people.

  • Lois : You know what, Hal? I'm done. I give up.

    Hal : What are you talking about?

    Lois : Jamie wins. He beat me. All those years, all those terrible things those kids have done. It doesn't make me stronger, it's just worn me down. Like termites eating away at a house, until all that's holding up is paint. I'm just paint, Hal. Jamie knows it. You'll do a better job than I can. I trust you.

    Hal : No, no, no. No-no-no-no-no-no! You can't leave me alone with those kids! We had a deal, Lois! You are in charge of the spiritual and emotional development, discipline and scary injuries. I kill spiders, mark their heights on the door frames and supply car snacks. You walk out now and the whole system falls apart!
