In reference to the "Family Reunion" episode when the boys ruined the birthday dinner of Hal's father, it was fun to watch, but my question is- could someone do that in real life without getting in alot of trouble? Or could they be pressed with charges for doing that?
Another thing- did the boys have time to pack their bags before doing their prank? (Because the family drove away in the van as soon as the boys got out of the swimming pool to flee the angry relatives)
I think because it is a family issue they wouldnt get any punishments but judgements of the family of hal So I think if you are not interested in being good with your family, yes you could do it in real lie and from my point of view i think you should do it. If I imagine somebody would treat my mother like this ..
In my opnion this scene represents the family of malcolm, because they are fighting a lot with each other, but they stay together if someone else is humiliating someone of them.
