Episode Summary

EDIT
Her best friend Lori Ann (guest star Park Overall) shows up at the door and announces that she's moving back to town. They recall their crazy single days and Lori Ann announces that now they're both divorced (probably the third time for her), it's time they hit the town. Lori Ann gets a glimpse of how accommodating Reba is to Brock and Barbra Jean and is amazed that her old friend could even allow her ex-husband's pregnant mistress into the house. It's clear that Brock and Lori Ann never really got along so he's less than thrilled that she's back in town. They trade barbs constantly. Brock and Reba are at the "division of property" stage of their divorce so Reba is cleaning out the garage, separating out all of Brock's things. She remembers fondly how she scrimped and saved to give him a set of golf clubs when he was in dental school. When Lori Ann comes across a photo of BJ and Brock at a dental conference in Hawaii that dates back before Brock and Reba were separated, those fond memories disappear. Reba assumes the worst: that Brock was with BJ while he was still living at home. She decides that a little garage sale is in order. At breakfast Cheyenne feels the baby moving around for the first time. Van is initially reluctant to feel her belly, but once he does, he gets a whole new perspective on fatherhood. Deciding that he needs to be a better parent, he coddles Cheyenne. She's thrilled with the pampering, and takes full advantage of these new opportunities, until Van institutes a few new rules: less TV, no sex… . Cheyenne tells Van that his interest in being a good father is great, but he needs to relax a little. Brock discovers that Reba has sold off most of his memories and can't understand why she would do such a thing. When she shows him the picture he denies that he even knew BJ and insists that he didn't start seeing her until he moved out of the house and into his condo. Reba doesn't believe him and takes Lori Ann up on her offer of a night on the town. Reba is drowning her sorrows when BJ herself walks into the bar. She explains that she's not here to defend what she's done, but for Brock. BJ insists that Brock was telling the truth and that they weren't at the convention together. She then tells Reba that she was there with another married dentist. Apparently she has thing for dentists because she rattles off a list of former flames. Reba shows up at Brock's condo with his recovered set of golf clubs and apologizes for not believing him. She doesn't give up BJ's past, but tells Brock that what changed her mind doesn't matter. Reba says she's ready to move on and Brock agrees, saying that he still loves Reba even though they aren't together.moreless
