    He wouldn't be able to just suddenly become President, he'd have to start at the bottom and work his way up, and it could take a long time and will require a lot of effort.

    Go watch the clip again. He does work his way up. He starts by earning scholarships and fellowships from Harvard, then works with a foundation, then governor of a midsize state, then President. It's not that Lois demands it; she expects it because, as Hal explained, he kept upping the ante and has proven that he can do it.

    Almost every thread I start becomes a debate between who agrees and who doesn't. I shouldn't have created the thread in the first place.

    Yes you should have--debates are good. If we didn't disagree, we would have nothing to discuss.

    I have to say that I disagree with that statement. During the filth scene, the following conversation tidbit occurs.

    Malcolm: What if I don't want to be president?
    Lois: It's too late for that -- you're gonna do it!

    This seems to indicate a sort of control, not just an expectation. That said, I am not attacking Lois. Although I disagreed with her at the beginning of the scene, it's clear by the end that Malcolm has taken on the challenge. In a way, that scene affirmed (at least in my mind) that despite the frequent mishaps, Lois knows what is best for her children, which seems to be a pretty constant theme.

    True, she demands it there. But what she's really doing harps back to a season six episode whose name embarassingly escapes me at the moment where Malcolm wants to learn to play the guitar. Lois tells him he'll never be good at it and then Malcolm asks if she says he would be good at a bunch of other things and she answers yes or no. She knows he'll be a good President, assumes he knows as well, and as such can expect that from him.

    That was in Hal Sleepwalks, and a very funny scene at that.
