    Ugh, another one of those episodes where it seemed as if the writers ran out of ideas!!! Just seemed like this season they lost there touch and I hope they realize it and snap out of it and fix it before it's too late!!!



    Although this episode did gear up for the big Van and Cheyenne feud that would later take place in the season finale!!!



    But overall, this episode just wasn't that funny at all and it failed in trying to entertain me!!!

  • This episode was very revealing...Van is feeling left out! Is this a sign of trouble in the marraige?

    I think that this episode was very well written as well as revealing. With Cheyenne making all these decisions about her future and not including Van this is not a good sign. I can understand how Van would be upset. She barely discusses anything with him. Of course for November sweeps this was a cliff hanger episode. I can't wait to see the conclusion!!!

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Brock: I hate places like this. It reminds me I'm gonna be old someday.
      Van: Someday?
      Brock: You'll be old someday too. Who'll be laughing then?
      Van: Not you, cause you'll be dead!

    • Reba (to Van & Cheyenne): All right. Listen to me, both of you. I'm going to tell you the secret to a long marriage.
      Van: You? Well forgive me, Mrs. H. I find that slightly ironic.
      Reba: I thought you might say that. I am the person to learn this from. See, Brock & I had to learn this the hard way, people change, they grow. But if the people grow and the marriage doesn't that's when you sprout a Barbra Jean.
      Cheyenne: Mom, it's so cool that the tragedy that is your life can help others.
      Reba: Right back at ya.

    • Van (sarcastically): Oh look Mrs. H. It's Mother Theresa, with lip gloss.
      Cheyenne (just as sarcastic): Clever, Van. Just for your information, Mother Theresa knew nothing about make-up.
      Van: Oh really? What a loser!

    • Barbra Jean: I thought justice was blind?
      Judge: Yeah, it's not deaf.

    • Director (talking about the elderly ladies): Cheyenne has been giving them makeovers, from top to saggy bottom.

    • Reba (to Brock): Where's Barbra Jean? Oh don't tell me, the Circus came back and recaptured her.

    • Jake (enters the room in his p.j.s and hands a thermometer to Reba): Mom, I can't go to school, I'm sick.
      Reba (reads thermometer): Oh, honey. Wow! 120, yeah that's high.
      Van: It sounds serious. We better double check. Okay Jake, bend over, come on bend over.
      Jake: I'm going to school!

    • Van: Okay, Mrs. H. are you ready for a healthy breakfast? I got egg whites, plain wheat toast and an assortment of fruit, you're going love this. It's really good and it's going to lower your cholesteral and it all a-choo. (Van sneezes all over Reba's breakfast and when Reba turns around to look at him, Van throws it in the garbage). You like doughnuts, doughnuts are good.

    • Van mentions Mother Theresa. This is an allusion to a famous woman who sacrificed everything for the very needy. Her given name was Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu and she live from 1910 to 1997. She was an Albanian Roman Catholic who founded the Missionaries of Charity and won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for her humanitarian work. She died a few weeks after an English princess.

    • Episode title "Grannies Gone Wild" refers to "Girls Gone Wild".
