just watched this great ep again and was wondering why does lois say 'i hope its a girl' when i thought the whole point of the ep was the realisation that girls would be as bad as boys. seem a little odd. thoughts?

also did you know that Cristopher Masterson play his female version!? its very well done!

also the guy who plays hal alter ego is quite good (im quite sure its not bryan)

It is a good episode, but in answer to your question, after 4 boys, wouldn't a mother want another girl to be in the family to talk to and stuff.. :D

I agree, I think she said it because she still wanted to have girl altough she realized that girls can be as bad as boys. I realized that it was Francis, I think he did a good job. :D (Though his voice sounded a bit like a computer voice in my opinion). I´m quite sure it WAS Bryan Cranston. He probably just wore a suit or something. Did you see that movie with Eddie Murphy where he played a fat professor who turned into a thin person from time to time? (I forgot its name). That was also him, he just wore a costume, and I think that´s probably also what Bryan did.

They have fat suits that those actors can wear, so that's probably it.

To date, this is still one of my all-time favorite episodes. The entire thing is funny; the storyline is fantastic; and it's something really different and unique.

I mean, that pretty much sums up the entire series, but multiplyt that a few times for this episode in particular. Absolutely fantastic.

Wasn't this ep nominated for some type of award?

This is a good episode in the same way that Bowling is in my opinion. It's a really original idea, and it's still really funny. Definitely a classic, I think it was nominated for an emmy but i'm not sure. This is another one that i think should be on the top 25 list in the vc, but i don't think it is. I reckon the point about Lois saying "i hope you a girl" is that even though she realises girls aren't perfect it would still be good to get a change from dealing with all the trouble the boys cause. Also it helps with the plot because from what i gather Jamie and Lois have a few problems, so the fact she wanted a girl might account for her being even more irritable than usual with the new baby.

Don't have the other episode, sorry. Sounds like it's going to be an interesting paper, though.

What do you think the show would be like if one or all of the boys were girls?

Yeah i know. It seems funny if Reese or Francis were girls. The actress who played Marta in School of Rock looks like him. I'm sure she played Dewey (girl) in MitM 'if boys were girls' although i'm not sure!

Yeah it does look like her although its not. IMDB says that the actress who plays marta- Caitlin Hale- has only filmed school of rock.:D

Samboo1: Does it say that caitlin hale guest starred in MitM if you scroll down? I hav'nt checked. It's great you've researched all this on imdb, good for you!!

Cool, i would like to find out who played the girl 'Dewey' in Malcolm in the Middle, that would be interesting. Let me check......................... apparently Jennette McCurdy (http://www.tv.com/jennette-mccurdy/person/125871/summary.html) played Daisy Wilkerson/Dewey!! She also played Penelope in MitM episode 'Buseys take a hostage'. She's 4 foot 9 and was born on the 26th June 1992 so she's younger than Erik/Dewey!! Courtesy of imdb/tv.com!!:)

I found this one of the best MITM eppys I've seen, maybe ever! :D But I was sort of stuck on BBC2 random timetable so its way out of date. I'll add some more thoughts to the main site, but this thread title is the reason I decided to post on the boards so yeah. Go "If Boys Were Girls". :)
