Title Directed by Written by Original airdate
1 1 "Pilot" James Widdoes Allison M. Gibson October 5, 2001 (2001-10-05)
The Harts are in court-ordered therapy. As the story unfolds, Brock and Reba reveal that they are separated due to Brock's midlife crisis and while in court the entire family - Reba, Brock, Cheyenne, Jake and Kyra - got into what the judge described as a brawl. While in therapy Brock reveals that he won't be moving back home because he has to marry his dental hygienist/assistant Barbra Jean because she was pregnant. Then, Jake lets it slip that Cheyenne, the Harts' 17-year-old daughter, is pregnant as well. Back at home, Van (Cheyenne's jock boyfriend) proposes to Cheyenne right in front of Reba. Reba organizes a shotgun wedding while trying to keep terminally perky Barbra Jean at a safe distance. Van's parents won't come to the wedding and have kicked him out of the house but, on the bright side, he managed to arrange a honeymoon at his uncle's beach house in Galveston. On the wedding day, Cheyenne is upset that her Dad hasn't arrived yet. Reba starts to lose it when she burns some of the food. Brock arrives with Barbra Jean. Cheyenne and Van get into an argument because Van plans to play football on their wedding night. Things are thrown, and Barbra Jean falls into the cake. Reba finally loses it, shouting at everyone. Reba and Cheyenne commiserate. Then Reba gives Cheyenne a pep talk about facing reality and plotting a new course. Cheyenne asks Reba if she can wear her wedding dress, instead of the sexy little number she had planned on. They have the wedding, and all ends beautifully. .
2 2 "The Honeymoon's Over Or Now What?" Gail Mancuso Allison M. Gibson October 12, 2001 (2001-10-12)
The high school's principal Mrs. Hodge (Julia Duffy) calls Reba and Brock into her office to give them a brochure on an alternative school for pregnant mothers, called Hollyhouse, that she feels Cheyenne should attend. When Reba returns to say that Cheyenne's decision is to stay in her regular high school the principal makes it clear that this wasn't a request. When Reba insists that Cheyenne be allowed to stay, the principal suspends the pregnant teen for three weeks, enough time to ruin her grades. First, Brock brings Barbra Jean into the group, making Reba more than unhappy. Then they begin discussing Cheyenne's situation and Reba comes up with an idea. They believed that if they kept Van out of school as long as Cheyenne is out of school, the principal will have to give in and let them both back because the school would lose their chance at a football championship without star cornerback Van. Cheyenne and Van have been staying at home in protest, but as the next big game approaches without any word from the Principal Hodge, everyone begins to get nervous and doubt Reba's plan. At the last minute, the principal arrives-she was booed by the football crowd during pre-game warm-ups-and says that Cheyenne is welcome to come back to school. But suddenly Cheyenne says she won't go back. When Reba takes her aside to ask why, Cheyenne admits that before all this happened she was a role model to the younger girls and that she is no longer one because she is married and pregnant. When Reba explains that standing up for what she believes in was the right thing to do, Cheyenne realizes that it's that action the makes her a role model and decides to return to school.
3 3 "Someone's At The Gyno With Reba" Gail Mancuso Allison M. Gibson & Eric Horsted October 19, 2001 (2001-10-19)
Van has finally moved some of his stuff (that his parents thoughtfully threw out on their front lawn for him) into the room he shares with Cheyenne. Unfortunately, most of it's either in bad taste or just downright unacceptable (like the cheerleaders poster). But when Cheyenne doesn't object, Reba can't understand why she wouldn't tell Van how she really feels. While on a visit to the gynecologist, Reba also discovers that Cheyenne and Barbra Jean are sharing the same doctor... and Brock has brought little Jake to the appointment. When Cheyenne accuses Reba of being a control freak and running Brock out of the marriage, Reba goes to therapy by herself. The therapist agrees that Reba is too controlling and suggests that she just let go of a few things; do something for herself like go to a movie. Van and Cheyenne are fighting because she's finally told him that she doesn't like the things he's added to their room. Reba goes to a movie, leaving the kids to fend for themselves for dinner. In a panic, Cheyenne calls Brock for help. Cheyenne and Brock both complain about Reba's controlling behavior, but when Cheyenne says that she thinks it's the reason her parents marriage ended, Brock gets serious for a minute and corrects her. He tells her that it was a two-way street and that Reba is not entirely to blame. In fact, he likes that she always speaks her mind. When Reba returns from the movie, she and Cheyenne have a heart to heart talk and Cheyenne apologizes.
4 4 "You Make Me Sick" Leonard R. Garner, Jr. Patricia Carr October 26, 2001 (2001-10-26)
Cheyenne is experiencing morning sickness for the first time and Van is tired of her vomiting. Reba suspects that a neighbor does not want her son hanging out at Reba's house with Jake because of all the objectionable things that go on. Brock convinces Van that Cheyenne's morning sickness is mental and that she just needs to get over it - after all, Barbra Jean only had one day of queasiness and now she's fine. He suggests that Van and Cheyenne come over to his place for a nice dinner. Cheyenne agrees to go but still doesn't feel well. BJ takes her aside and tells her that she just needs to lie. BJ feels terrible and has morning sickness too, but she hides it from Brock to keep him happy. Cheyenne attempts to act happy but finally breaks down and admits to Van that she feels awful. They agree to be honest with each other. Reba's neighbor admits that she doesn't want her son at Reba's house so Reba denies Jake permission to go on a campout with his friend. She tries to cheer Jake up with an indoors campout at home, but he doesn't buy it. Reba's neighbor shows up and says that she's sorry and she should have known that she can trust Reba.
5 5 "The Steaks are High" Leonard R. Garner, Jr. Patricia Carr November 2, 2001 (2001-11-02)
After being named player of the week, Van begs Reba to host the pre-game dinner for the football team since his family won't even talk to him. When she finally gives in, he and Cheyenne are so excited she can't help but look forward to it... that is, until Brock and BJ arrive with the "bible" for team pre-game dinners. They offer to take hosting off of her hands, but Reba refuses to give in. If they have to have a perfect dinner, silly traditions and all, to win then that's what she'll give them. Reba has everything in order for the dinner until Cheyenne comes back from running errands at the store. It seems she was so overwhelmed looking in the baby aisle that when she went to pick up potato salad, she picked up the wrong kind. Reba solves the problem by dumping the potato salad into a serving dish and saying that no one will ever know. The dinner goes well, with Cheyenne even participating in cheers with her old squad. But Barbra Jean discovers Reba's ruse with the salad and tells the whole team. Reba takes the blame so the team isn't mad at Cheyenne. They decide all is lost and they might as well go get their butts kicked on the field. At half time the Wildcats are losing miserably. When Cheyenne finds out that Reba lied for her, she decides to take responsibility and confess to the team. Van stands up for his wife but it doesn't change the fact that Wildcats still think they're going to lose. Just then Reba saves the day again by arriving with the right potato salad. They go out and after a dramatic comeback, win the game. (Reba admits to Cheyenne that she just changed the labels and it's the same old potato salad.) Barbra Jean apologizes to Reba for telling everyone about the mistake.
6 6 "The Man and the Moon" Leonard R. Garner, Jr. Chris Alberghini & Mike Chessler November 9, 2001 (2001-11-09)
Her kitchen garbage disposal is on the blink again and Reba refuses to call Brock to fix it like he used to do when he still lived at home. She tries to fix the disposal herself but only makes it worse. Giving in, she calls a handyman. Bill (guest star Greg Evigan - "B.J. and the Bear") takes a look under her sink and finds all the of the "patches" that Brock has made over the years. Reba and Bill flirt and Brock gets jealous. When Bill offers to take Reba to a hardware store to pick out a new kitchen faucet, Reba can't believe that Bill would be hitting on her. Cheyenne is excited to be going out with the girls. While driving to a Wildcats football game they moon the players on the bus. Cheyenne has a great time but Van is upset that everyone is seeing his wife's butt. She argues that it's her butt and she can do whatever she pleases with it, besides she had so much fun... that is until Kyra points out that someone took pictures and they're on the Internet. Kyra tries to tell Reba that her outing with Bill to the hardware store is a date, but Reba won't believe it. She goes out with Bill and they have a great time picking out a faucet. Van tries to fix the Internet problem by telling everyone that if they vote for Cheyenne as best butt then he'll kick their butts. Cheyenne gets upset when no one votes for her because she knows that her butt won't be so cute anymore, the further along her pregnancy she gets. When they get back to the house Bill tries to kiss Reba but she stops him. She tells him that her divorce isn't final yet and she isn't ready... but she hopes he's still around when she is. Reba then tells Cheyenne an embarrassing story about nude sunbathing in high school and Cheyenne feels better.
7 7 "Tea and Antipathy" Leonard R. Garner, Jr. Chris Alberghini & Mike Chessler November 16, 2001 (2001-11-16)
Cheyenne and Reba argue over whether or not Cheyenne should do laundry and grocery shopping. Cheyenne returns from "grocery shopping" with no bags, but an application for an apartment that she and Van found. The only problem is they don't have the money to support themselves. Cheyenne asks Reba and Brock for money and they turn her down. She then tells Van to ask his parents. After all, they must be over the whole wedding thing by now and feeling guilty on top of it. Van returns with a new truck and his parents offer for them to move in. Van and Cheyenne pack up and are ready to move to the Montgomerys' house. When they take over their first load of stuff in their new truck Van's father asks to speak with him alone. The Montgomerys make it clear that they asked Van to move in, not Cheyenne. The truck and the offer were a bribe to get him to leave his new bride. Van knows how much this will crush Cheyenne, she was so excited about living in the Montgomery's mansion, maid and all. Kyra lies to her dad when cancelling their plans. Reba asks her why she lied and Kyra says that she and her dad are very different and it's uncomfortable for them to hang out. She calls back and tells Brock that she can make it after all. Reba talks to Brock and he admits he's a little bit afraid of Kyra. Reba tells him it's time they sat down and talked, that he needs to take his daughter out on a date. Van goes to Reba for advice and she tells him that he needs to finally stand up to his father. Van and Reba go over to the Montgomerys' to confront them. Mr. Montgomery starts insulting Reba and her lack of morals for allowing her daughter to get pregnant and it finally gives Van the courage to stand up to his dad. He tells Mr. Montgomery that Reba is a better father than he ever was and hands back the keys to the truck. Brock and Kyra go out on their date and end up at a frilly tea party store where both of them are incredibly uncomfortable (it was Barbra Jean's idea). They both decide they'd rather go see a movie. Van and Cheyenne tell Reba they're happy to be back home. Absent: Melissa Peterman as Barbra Jean (though mentioned by Brock)
8 8 "Don't Know Much About History" Gary Shimokawa Mike Larsen November 16, 2001 (2001-11-16)
What Reba didn't want to hear: Kyra has forsaken her clarinet. Reba suspects there's more to the story than Kyra saying she's grown out of her old instrument. Van returns from school and announces that he's failed his history mid-term. Brock arranges for Van to retake the test so he can pass and still play football. Unfortunately, Brock's tutoring skills are a little too overbearing, so Reba takes over. She discovers that he knows the information, but was so stressed out over football, his marriage, future career and baby that he blanked on the test. Reba helps him study and calm down, but when Van goes to retake the test, he fails again. Brock once again gets him a makeup exam but after talking to Reba about finding other interests besides football, Van says he wants to be in the school play, "The Alamo Experience" as Scout #4, instead of playing in Friday's game. She has her new tuba partner over to the house to practice and he turns out to be a cute boy named Brian. Kyra's busy making cookies for him at the same time denying she's interested. At the end of one "jam session" Brian asks her if she could find out whether or not her clarinet-playing friend Melissa Burke likes him. Kyra's crushed but says she'll do it. Brock finally allows Van to try acting after Reba convinces him that he should take some of the stress out of his life. He has a great time in the play, even thinking he'll try out for the Spring musical. Brock returns from the game announcing that the Wildcats won. Van is so thrilled that the team can win without him he wants to play again because the pressure's off. Absent: Melissa Peterman as Barbra Jean

She's having a decadent lunch with Lori Ann after a day of shopping and offers to pay, claiming it's a celebration since her divorce is final in a month. The waitress comes back to table to say that her credit card has been declined. When Reba gets home and calls the credit card company to report her card number stolen, she finds out that someone has been on a spree, spending $4000 on a diamond tiara and $175 at a religious gift shop. Who would do such a thing? Barbra Jean of course. Reba shows up at his door spitting fire because his mistress has run up the limit on her credit card. They had decided that during the divorce they would each get one card and Brock accidentally gave BJ the one for Reba's account. BJ tries to explain that the tiara was meant to dress up her simple wedding suit and lets it slip that they're planning on saying their vows in St. Thomas at dental convention in two weeks. Reba's shocked that they were going to sneak off and wonders how Brock thinks he can get married when their divorce isn't final. He tries to explain that all she has to do is sign a form and he can marry BJ before their divorce is final. Cheyenne answers a call from the principal pretending to be Reba. It's actually Kyra's school and they want to know why she didn't attend that day. Cheyenne covers for her, saying Kyra was sick and she (Reba) forgot to call in. Kyra says she went to the downtown library because Maya Angelou was there. Cheyenne and Van decide it's a great opportunity to test their parenting skills and force Kyra to do a number of chores as "punishment." After cleaning their room and doing their laundry Kyra decides that telling Reba is better than being under the thumb of Cheyenne and Van. Reba gets a call from a hysterical BJ who's been arrested by mall security for using Reba's stolen credit card. Reba visits her in mall jail and finds herself feeling sorry for BJ because Brock wants to get the wedding over with. Reba encourages her to ask for the wedding of her dreams. Brock stops by Reba's house and she tells him that she'll sign the form. Brock says it's not necessary since she was so nice to BJ, he decided that he'll give her the wedding of her dreams. Reba has talked her way into allowing Brock to have a wedding in town to his mistress with all their friends... he even asks her to sing. Oops. Kyra admits to skipping school and Reba says she'll let it slide this time. Cheyenne and Van are shocked at her lenience until she turns to them and asks how she should punish a big sister and brother-in-law who blackmailed Kyra to do their chores?

Reba's parents (guest stars Barry Corbin, Northern Exposure and Dorothy Lyman, The Bold and the Beautiful) are celebrating their 46th wedding anniversary. They're taking a vacation and on the way they plan on stopping by Reba's to see the family. Reba's excited about her parents' visit until her mom starts making comments about what makes a good marriage. Thinking her mother is disappointed that she didn't keep her marriage together, Reba takes the comments to heart. Nevertheless, she plans a lunch to celebrate the anniversary and tells Brock that he should stop by and say hi, but not to bring Barbra Jean. Van's terrified of Cheyenne's grandparents because he's sure they disapprove of the marriage and Cheyenne's pregnancy, blaming him. Grandma assures him that she and her husband got married young as well. She gives Cheyenne a locket that her husband gave her a few years after they got married. It contained a real diamond ring, since they were too poor to have a real one when they first wed. Cheyenne admires the amount of memories her grandparents have, so she tries to create some of her own with Van by giving him a heart-shaped keychain with a poem she wrote herself. Van mocks the keychain, but when he hands her his own handmade gift she's equally as unimpressed. Brock stops by to say hi to Reba's parents and their reception is pretty cold at first. Just as they're starting to warm up to Brock again, Barbra Jean pops in the house with a pie she's made. They manage to get invited to the anniversary brunch where the conversation's tense at best. Barbra Jean doesn't seem to notice the cold disapproval around her, as usual. When Reba's mom discovers that BJ's an outlet mall bargain hunter they decide to go shopping together. Reba tags along, only to be shocked at how well BJ and her mom get along. When they return from the mall, Reba accuses her mom of liking BJ too much and insinuating that it's Reba's fault her marriage didn't last. Her mom explains that when she first saw BJ, she thought Reba was letting herself get made a fool of, that she wasn't standing up for herself. But now she realizes that Reba's stronger than she thought possible because she's allowing BJ into her life. Van and Cheyenne agree that their memories will get made, without forcing them to happen. Reba's parents take off on their vacation and the house returns to normal... well, as normal as it gets anyway.
12 12 "A Mid-Semester's Night Dream" Linda Day Robert Peacock January 25, 2002 (2002-01-25)
She announces at breakfast that she has a new position as a substitute teacher at the high school. Cheyenne is mortified that her mother's going to be around, but Reba assures her that she put Brock through dental school by teaching and she's always intended to go back to it. Cheyenne won't even know she's there. Reba's first day was full of pranks and mishaps and she absolutely loved it. When she arrives home Brock is waiting. Kyra called him to say that they're turning into latchkey kids and he's concerned that Reba's not home. She assures him that it'll all work out fine. Van and Cheyenne's friends Marisa and Eric are deeply in love. They're hanging out a Reba's house and announce that they've decided to get married. After a little questioning by Reba, she discovers that part of the reason they want to get married is to have sex and the other part is because Cheyenne and Van seem to be having so much fun. Reba convinces Van and Cheyenne to clue them into the realities of married life. She then explains how unlikely it is that a marriage would last and urges them to think about it some more. When Van and Cheyenne try to explain to their friends how hard married life is, it's revealed that Cheyenne feels smothered by Van and Van wishes he'd shopped around a little more before settling down. They argue and start to question why they got married (other than the pregnancy of course). Reba is pulled out of class by the principal and told that she's being fired. Apparently Marisa's mother called the school because she walked in on Marisa and Eric about to have sex. From what they understand, Reba told them they didn't have to be married to have sex. Reba tries to explain that they came to her for advice and she counseled them not to get married, but she never said they should have sex outside of marriage. Unfortunately, having Van and Cheyenne as married pregnant teenagers in her house isn't setting a good example and Reba is fired anyway. Reba comes home, saddened by losing her job. Brock tells her that he supports her going back to teaching. Reba explains that she was fired and tells him why. She wonders if she's making it too easy for Van and Cheyenne. Brock tells her that by taking them in, she was making a very brave decision and thanks her for it. Out on the front porch, Van comes home to find Cheyenne sitting there. She asks him why he married her and he asks her the same question. They figure out that they still want to be married and repeat their own version of their vows to each other.
13 13 "Brock's Swan Song" Gail Mancuso Gary H. Miller February 1, 2002 (2002-02-01)
Cheyenne and Van are going to get an ultrasound that will tell them the sex of their baby. Brock arrives and announces that his father John D. has died. Apparently he was on the golf course when a swan kept interrupting his putting. He took a swing at the swan and had a heart attack. It's clear that Brock and his father weren't very close and he begs Reba to help him with funeral arrangements. Having known John D. for over 20 years, Reba prepares a small funeral ceremony including a few friends and family. The arrangements are almost complete when Brock comes by with BJ (deep in mourning even though she never met John D). BJ puts together an elaborate funeral complete with white doves and a Baptist choir. Reba takes Brock aside and convinces him that this isn't what John D. would've wanted. She mentions that he'd have been happy to buried on a golf course. Brock thinks this is a great idea and immediately has John D. cremated. He begs Reba to help him spread the ashes on the 12th hole at the country club. Reba gives in, but the cops arrive and arrest them for illegally spreading ashes. Cheyenne and Van find out that they're going to have a baby girl. Cheyenne immediately comes up with a ton of girls names, but Van doesn't seem to be so thrilled. He always envisioned them having a boy that he could play football with. Cheyenne tries to convince him that he'll be just as good of a dad to a girl as with a boy but he thinks that he'll have nothing in common with a girl. Brock and Reba sit in the police station and Brock begins to come to terms with his dad's death. They never got along and rarely saw each other. When the minister asked if anyone had objections during their wedding ceremony, John D. stood up and said that Brock didn't deserve Reba. Reba convinces him that John D. was really proud of him for being a dentist and that despite their estrangement, really loved him. Brock begins to mourn his father and the breakup of his marriage to Reba. The police let them go, but make them take John D.'s ashes and Brock is banned from the country club for life. Jake is having nightmares about John D. in heaven and mean angels so he comes downstairs to Van and Cheyenne. Van sits him down and convinces him that the angels are really nice and that John D.'s in a good place. Cheyenne points out that both little boys and little girls need that kind of reassurance and that Van will be a good father. Brock takes Jake to the 12th hole at the country club and covertly spreads the rest of the ashes (most of which he spread in the mud pit at the Kit Kat club).

Then Brock walks in and hands Cheyenne the keys to a brand new (well, used) car. Reba gets upset because they had a deal with their kids: they get a new car when they can pay for half. Cheyenne and Van need to pay for their half of the car before they can use it. Cheyenne starts doing work around the house and Van takes a job at a pizza place. When Van gets promoted to pizza delivery driver, Reba has to do the driving since Van doesn't technically have a car yet.
