Reba Hart has to deal with her divorce from a cheating husband, the new pregnant wife he left her for, her oldest daughter's teenage pregnancy and hasty marriage, and being a newly single parent to three kids, all the while cracking numerous jokes at the ex's new wife. Despite its slapstick premise, the show exhibited a surprising amount of genuinely touching emotion.

This all but disappeared after the first season, until much later in the show's run the fifth season. Kyra was absolutely nowhere to be seen for the vast majority of Season 5 2 out of 22 episodesdue to Scarlett Pomers's battle with anorexia though some have speculated that was just a convenient excuse for network execs to focus on other characters like Jake at the expense of her character.
Lampshaded when she returned in Season 6: Kyra walks into the house after long absence; audience applause Van: Where have you been? I went to get something to eat. And then hinted at once more: Where are you going? Just going to grab something to eat. Okay, see you next year. Brock's father John D. The problem was that John D. Van's parents, but especially Dan, Van's father.
In their debut appearance, they bribe Van with a new truck in order to convince him to leave Cheyenne and move back in with them. Van is so afraid of his father that he can barely even talk to him.
It's not until Dan badmouths Reba that Van finally stands up to his father and calls him out on how he's done nothing but bully Van. Later seasons see Van trying to reconcile with his parents, but none of his attempts would last. Brock's mother can't seem to learn Barbra Jean's name to the point that she never sticks to one misnaming. Hearing the right name doesn't make her correct it, probably because she hates the woman.
Cheyenne constantly is drowning herself in alcohol after Van's football career was completely stopped due to his spinal condition getting worse, but she moves on after many pep talks and encouragement.
She briefly falls into Smoking Is Not Cool to distract herself from drinkingmuch to Reba's chagrin. Van never had an alcohol problem and initially was covering up for Cheyenne, but when he during a party tried to prevent Reba from drinking a single cup of alcohol all because she had taken a pill from Cheyenne's purse meant to discourage drinking instead of healing stress, Cheyenne asked him why not just toss the wine down the drain if he was feeling tipsy from drinking too much.
Van really cannot pass up on drinking too much. In the episode "For Sale, Cheap" Barbra Jean suggests that they should do Donkey Basketball at the next school auction, this is portrayed as another one of her crazy ideas, but as it turns out Donkey Basketball does in fact exist. Reba's trademark Oklahoma drawl, naturally. The rest of the cast did seem to be trying to affect Southern accents during the first season Barbra Jean, especially.
Most didn't work very well, so by the second season, they just gave up. A Mistake Is Born: In an episode in Season Two, during a heated argument with Van and Cheyenne over their recent pregnancy scare, Reba forbids them from having another baby in her house and says she will not let them make the "same mistake" twice I.
Cheyenne and Van are obviously hurt from her calling their daughter Elizabeth this and they call her out on it, though she denies it at first and this prompts them to move out. At the start of the sixth season, Barbra Jean loses a lot of weight, causing Van to gawk at her a lot more, upsetting Cheyenne. Barbra Jean's attempt at making Cheyenne feel better does no favor for the latter. Don't get upset, Cheyenne. You're like a bleached-out Melissa Peterman as Barbra Jean, though they only added the actual "and" credit to her name for the final two seasons.
Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Barbra Jean's account of a private investigator she hired to tail Brock during their separation: Also, Reba about Kyra's boyfriend's parents: They could be drunks, or convicts, or telemarketers for all I know!
As the Good Book Says Parodied in the episode "And God Created Van. This horrifies his very conservative family, especially Barbra Jean. She brings the Bible to him, saying she found a passage that might help him. If you look here at Matthew 12 Verse 3 "And Jesus says unto his disciples Do you want to spend eternity in a fiery damnation?!
And a second later, we saw where she got the idea. Barbra Jean, you're not gonna get anybody to believe by hitting them with a Bible.
Oh, that's how my daddy did it. Really all over the place: In the last few seasons, Brock and Barbra Jean had their marriage collapse. He moved back out, they were constantly arguing, and Brock felt the only real way to salvage it was to pull The Baby Trap on Barbra Jean having his vasectomy reversed without telling her.
Any real mention of Reba and Brock's marriage implied it was pretty bad as well, especially during the end. Alongside Brock's infidelity, Brock frequently skipped out on his and Reba's marriage counseling appointments, Reba was put on anti-depressants, and she talks so badly about the end of their marriage, you almost wonder why she didn't thank Barbra Jean for putting their marriage out of its misery.
In all honesty, the healthiest marriage on this show was Van and Cheyenne, believe it or not, who seemed rather stable under all their arguing. They argue often, but there's no question about the authenticity of their love. One episode during Season 5 has each of them two taking turns complaining about the other in a therapist's office, embracing each other when they finish, and then getting told off for arguing soon after in the waiting area of said therapist's office and at the parking lot outside.
Played for Laughsit's not so much "berserk" as "reacting strongly". In one episode, Reba and Van see a therapist named David. It's "David", not "Dave"! Some might say this is more a case of Insistent Terminology. Surprisingly, Brock doesn't put up with overt sexist comments.
His chauvinistic father-in-law told one offensive joke too many and it led to Brock telling him off. Don't call Barbra Jean "Blondzilla". Reba made that mistake and Barbra Jean was angry enough to hit her back, when she normally takes Reba's abuse and is intimidated by her. Van often mentions food and being hungry whenever he's on-screen. Reba in the episode "The Blond Leading the Blind", during which she tries to take care of herself while still recovering from an eye surgery "tries" being the operative word here, as drinking water out of a potted plant and spreading peanut butter on a sponge don't count as proof of the ability to successfully take care of oneselfwith Barbra Jean attempting to help Reba without Reba knowing.
Cheyenne blondJake brunetteand Kyra redhead. Van in "The Stakes Are High". Bow Chicka Wow Wow: Spoken as "bow chicka bow bow" as substitute for "sex", but the message still applies.
After the school charity auction held by Reba and Barbra Jean turns out to be a big hit, Brock mentions that tradition dictates a celebration party must be held to commemorate the sponsors, where Reba is obligated to congratulate Barbra Jean and vice versa.
Reba tells Brock there's nothing she'd rather do, but waits till Brock leaves before whispering to herself: Cheyenne and Kyra both show shades of it. During the show, Cheyenne pulls herself out of that trope and ends up becoming a good wife and mother. It's commented on multiple times that, for all the misery Cheyenne endured- her teen pregnancy, a bout with alcoholism, shouldering massive responsibility when Van's football plans are ruined by injury- she came out on the other side a much better person.Meet the Parents (2/11) Best Movie Quote - Puff the Magic Dragon (2000)
Kyra comments how Cheyenne went from being a spoiled, shallow, superficial princess to a caring wife and mother. Later, when Cheyenne considers becoming a dentist, Reba tries hard to talk her out of it, believing she's irresponsible and flaky, only to change her mind when she sees how responsible Cheyenne is in taking care of Elizabeth.
Later on, when she does abandon dentistry to become a drug counselor, it was portrayed in a sympathetic light as having her priorities change from "making a lot money" to "helping people.
I got my gum back. Barbra Jean is nearly the object of all of Reba's snarky remarks. Brock is hit with this the worst as he's the object of physical and emotional abuse from nearly all the cast members.
To add hilarity to his injuries, Reba's parents can only glare his way but are able to warm up to Barbra Jean, his mother dislikes how he ended up marrying a bimbo, Barbra Jean's father has many implications of wanting to shoot him even more when Brock stood up to him about misogynist jokes about Big Daddy's own wifeand Barbra Jean's brother Buzzer has such a deep and scary My Sister Is Off-Limits! Cannot Keep a Secret: Barbra Jean is very lousy in keeping secrets under wraps from others.

Kyra, standing right behind Jake, replies: I got Barney tapes here. At the end of the selfsame episode, when she does it once too many for Reba to tolerate any further, Reba threatens to sell Kyra's guitar.
Kyra, not wishing to run that risk, puts her guitar away. After Reba wrecks RhondaVan gets back at her by calling Barbra Jean to tell her of Reba's temporary blind condition, knowing full well that she would rush to Reba's aid despite Reba's dislike of having Barbra Jean around.

Kyra is downright adorable during the few times she cries. Brock claims this trope regarding a suspicious injury near his right ear in an episode in which Barbra Jean's dog goes missing. It turns out the dog bit him, but he insists he never hurt the dog and is soon cleared of the charge.

Jack, you know we've been through this I think Greg-- he's a lovely young man. And, honey, Pam thinks he might be the one.
She said those exact words? I didn't tape record it, Jack, but that's the impression. What kind of a family doesn't have time to sit down for dinner?
Please try to enjoy the weekend, honey. Both our daughters are in love. That's what I'm worried about. Oh, geez, I just realized something.
Looking for something, Greg? Jesus, Jack, you scared me. I heard a noise, so I came down to see if everything was okay. I just-- I'm sorry. I saw a light on, and I kinda stumbled in. I didn't realize-- That's okay.

I'm gonna hold you to that. Guess who's back in the circle of trust. Maybe I should ask him to dance. What do you think? I bet he could, uh, whittle a private little dance floor for the two of you. I saw some beech wood outside.
I shouldn't paint him with that brush, but-- Come on. Part of you wishes you ended up with him. Yes, he's very talented, but it would've never worked out.
I was never in love with Kevin. I'm in love with you. That's a good explanation. Thought you'd like that. I called you like half an hour ago.
Meet the Parents
Okay, I already-- I already described it. Uh, it's, uh-- It's brown It's Hank MacAtee from next door. You'll never guess who wandered over here this afternoon. Yeah, he's not wearing his collar, but, uh, I'm sure it's Jinxy.
Thought you might be worried, so just give me a jingle when you guys get home, and I'll bring the little rascal over. Okay, well, if you could just keep checking, please, and I'll call you back later. No, they're still looking. Hey, Jack, this is a great party. I guess sometimes these things sort of come together in their own kooky sort of way.
Yeah, it's kind of like the way you found Jinxy. You know, there's something about that ball of fur You haven't seen any of his latest tricks, have you?
Well, when we get back, I'll show you. We don't have to do it tonight. He's had a long day. I wouldn't want to-- No, I think he'd like to show you tonight. Why don't you give me the key and let me drive? Why don't I drive? It's a very expensive car.
I've always wanted to test-drive a Benz. Be my guest, Focker. Get in the car, honey. Get your seat belts on. Focker, Benz drives like a dream, Lar. Yeah, just trying to make good time.
What the heck is the matter with you? We're gonna be home. We're gonna get home. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! It's not the autobahn. You were supposed to make that left at the light, Focker. Who gave him the keys? Yeah, we've had enough excitement. It was the cat! Jinx, I'm gonna-- - [Shrieking] - Calm down! Cat got out, Jack! Greg, what's he talking about? Hank MacAtee called me a couple of hours ago and told me he found Jinxy.
He took his collar and put it on an impostor. Then he spray-painted his tail, and then he tried to beat us back here Please tell me that's not true, Greg. It was just a temporary solution until I could find the real Jinx.
That you set Kevin's altar on fire? Well, it wasn't intentional. I was chasing Jinx up onto the roof. I had a smoke, and I think I might have lit something that-- I don't know what happened. He put so much goddamn lacquer on that thing. It was an accident waiting to happen.
This is very disappointing, Greg. Get out of my house, Focker, and take your friend with you. So you lied to me about everything, huh, Greg? You lied about the cat, about the fire, about the MCATs. I didn't lie about the MCATs. Don't you see what's happening here? You did that to yourself. You didn't like me from the second I walked in here. I'm a very accepting person, Focker. All I ask for is honesty.
You wanna talk about truth and honesty, Jack? Okay, let's talk a little truth and honesty. Let's talk a little "Operation Ko Samui," Jack. What's he talking about, Dad? Yeah, that's weird, 'cause I thought there weren't any secrets I don't know what you're talking about.
Cat got your tongue? Hey, Pam, guess what. Daddy's planning a little covert operation in Thailand for the day after the wedding. Round and round we go, Jack. I bet everybody would love to hear about your rendezvous You know what I'm talking about. Where the guy gave you the passports and the documents. Or how about your little phone call in Thai? Jack can talk Thai. Jack talk Thai very well.
I'm sorry, Pam, but your dad is not retired. He's still very much in the C.
You stupid son of a bitch! You just blew it! Ko Samui is an island off the coast of Thailand! That guy I was meeting in the parking lot is Thor Svenson, my travel agent. Thanks a lot, J. I just, um-- You know, if this nursing thing doesn't work out, Focker, I'd say you definitely have a career in espionage. Well, I guess I'm gonna go to the airport now. I guess you're gonna stay here.
Pam, l-- - Gaylord M. That's not what it says on the form.
