Synopsis[edit | edit source]
When Hal and Lois realize how little time they spend together, Hal turns the garage into a private tiki lounge where he and Lois can retreat. Things go smoothly until they feud over philosophical beliefs, eventually stressing out in the lounge. Lois admits she can't believe in God due to Ida's lack of belief in him and the horrible treatment she endured under it.
Meanwhile, Mr. Herkabe cons Malcolm into joining the Booster Club, where he learns a lesson about taking one for the team. With that, he is able to help Lois reconcile with Hal and humiliate Mr. Herkabe by agreeing to sell his stuff.
Meanwhile worried over having two geniuses in the family teaming up against him and believing that Jamie has the same intelligence as him, Reese suggests they team up. This proves to be a failure as Jamie proves to still be more intelligent than Reese by letting him take a pen and walks away. Lois comes home and yells at Reese for drawing on the walls. He soon realizes too late that Jamie had set him up to be grounded by her.
