Watching The Baby
In a season 5 opener, Hal gets more than he gambled for when he and his family go to Vegas in order to fulfill a psychedelic dream of his.
When the family goes to Las Vegas, Hal tries to find the jackpot machine in his machine, and Lois goes to the Boone Vincent concert with Malcolm and spends time with him talking about parenting advice. Meanwhile, Reese and Dewey try to save a giant rabbit from getting cooked and Francis gets trapped with Otto in a well he was supposed to fix, as a fire erupts in the barn (also Francis' fault).
