Hal Sleepwalks
Malcolm's Car
Lois Battles Jamie is the eighth episode of season six of Malcolm in the Middle.


Lois is having so much trouble trying to fight with Jamie, that she's actually losing her confidence and succumbing to him. Meanwhile, Reese also feels as though he's losing his touch, and wants to pull off one crazy, out of this world stunt before he completely fades away.


Lois begins to think she is losing her touch when Jamie seems too much for her to handle. When Hal realizes that Lois is losing her confidence, he brings Francis home in order for him to explain to Lois how was she able to have confidence as a mother, but when she regains her confidence, Lois finds out that Reese has been putting 4 cans of Kapow soda every day, causing him to go beserk. Meanwhile, the other boys bring home a diving board and Reese tries to think up the craziest possible stunt to pull with it.


  • This episode has a flashback to when Hal and Lois were raising Francis as an only child in their old apartment home. This same setting was seen in the episode Flashback.
  • It is never revealed what bad thing Lois did to Jamie to make him behave.
