Malcolm in the Middle: Casino
Malcolm in the Middle, Nov. 19/2000
So, Mom and Dad decide to take Malcolm and his brothers on a vacation to some casino resort. Sound like fun? Well, if you're with Malcolm's parents, nothing can simply be fun - it's always an adventure.
As soon as they arrive, Malcolm and Reese decide to head for the pool. But one problem. They're not allowed to go to the pool without an adult, and Mom just wants to rest and Dad just wants to spend the day at the casino. Dad starts to lose a lot of money, so Malcolm "the genius" decides to help out by counting cards. But you can't do that. So they got taken away by security, they lost the $3000 they had won, and they got banned from the casino.
Dad then gets the bright idea to take everyone on a trip to a desert ghost town. Dewey is scared of ghosts so he stayed at the hotel. That turned out to be a good idea, since everyone else got lost in the desert - with no food or water. And things went worse from there. Malcolm, Reese, and Dad found a fence which they climbed over to find help. Well, the other side of the fence turned out to be an army firing range - with real bullets being fired. Yikes! They manage to avoid getting shot, and find someone from the army who points them in the right direction. After a long walk through the desert, Malcolm Reese and Dad finally reach the safety of the hotel room. I bet they can't wait for the next family vacation.
