Episode Summary

EDIT
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.
