Later, Malcolm enters the Wilkerson house with Dewey, who leaves with his fly Tony. Mr. Woodward is in the kitchen speaking with Hal and Lois; he gives them a document that, once signed, will place Reese in the remedial class. Before Hal and Lois can sign it, Malcolm tells them that Reese did not deserve an "F" on his test, and that Reese's teacher truly is out to get him. Mr. Woodward keeps telling him that the test is what it is; when Malcolm shows him one of the test's questions and states it to be a correct answer. When Mr. Woodward says it was only a partial answer and tells them what a complete answer requires, Malcolm recites the rest of the answer that Reese's teacher didn't bother to read and tells him it is "exactly what I wrote". Lois hears the "I wrote" part, and despite Malcolm's attempts to cover up his blunder, realizes that that he cheated for Reese. She is furious at this at first, but then immediately realizes that Mr. Woodward put an "F" on something Malcolm wrote. She unleashes her fury on Mr. Woodward about how Reese was inadvertently telling the truth the whole time and can't wait to see him fired for abusing the power he held as a teacher. When Mr. Woodward informs Lois that Malcolm will be expelled if the school finds out about him taking Reese's test for him, Lois sees this as a threat and tells him that Malcolm's knowledge will guarantee his future no matter what, and that Reese is the one who needs all the help he can get. Mr. Woodward does not believe that any mother could ever have such disregards for her own son, especially one who achieves like Malcolm. Suddenly, Francis then appears at the window cold, filthy, injured, hungry, crying and begging to come home; he promises to fix the roof, paint the house, or do anything to be inside and warm again. Mr. Woodward is horrified and accepts his defeat, and then arranges a deal to prevent himself from getting fired.
