Reese Joins the Army: Part 2
Buseys Run Away
Continuing the events of the previous season's cliffhanger episodes Reese Joins the Army, parts 1 and 2, we see Reese desert the army and head off on a road to home. Malcolm and Dewey try to fill in the empty void where Reese was, by doing the things that he would normally do.
- First episode to air in high definition.
- Reese gets legally wed to an Afghan man, while he is wearing a burka in disguise and posing as a woman. He never technically got divorced with this man, but he did run away from him. In the later episode, Bride of Ida, Reese would get more officially wed to a girl named Raduca. This would technically making Reese a polygamist, until the episode College Recruiters, where Reese and Raduca would get divorced.
- Reese is seen getting punished by a group of Hindus for making fun of one of their religious deities. Reese claims that he only made fun of it because he looked like a giant monkey man. This may have been a reference to Hanuman.
- Francis and Piama do not appear in this episode.
