Barbra Jean Booker Hart
Dr. Brock Hart
After Reba pops Van's "doggy" balloon animal, Van is supposed to remain shocked and disappointed while Reba is supposed to remain annoyed. However, they both start cracking up even after a few attempts to keep a straight face.
Barbra Jean: Oh I don't wanna sing near Reba, I forgot my ear plugs.
Reba,: What are you doing?
Barbra Jean: I'm zinging you, you know because I like you.
Reba: Don't give me that look. (Pause, as Reba looks at Brock) Oh, Right, that's the only look you have.
Reba: In response to Barbra Jean Seems like only yesterday that he was MY little boy.
Kyra: (In response to B.J. recommending the last word of a poem start rhyme with 'Jake'.) Like another idea from the great blond flake.
Van: She is not a kid, she is a Stair Master.
(reba vows to Brock she will no longer make fun of Barbra Jean)
Barbra Jean:The clown is here.(with the clown)
Reba:We know but who's the man with the funny looking hair?!
(Brock stares angrily)
Reba:I swear that's the last one.
Kyra: I thought you said Barbra Jean is where brain cells go when they die.
Barbra Jean: Can I give you a hug?
Reba: Not if I was choking on a piece of sausage.
Reba: (walks down the hallway and sees Cheyenne sitting in front of Elizabeth's door, while she crys) Hey. I brought you a corner piece.
Cheyenne: I don't feel like eating cake right now.
Reba: (sits down next to Cheyenne) But you always like a corner piece. I remember when you were little...
Cheyenne: My baby is crying Mom. (tear falls down her cheek)
Reba: Oh, I thought that was Van. Cheyenne I know this is tough.
Cheyenne: Really you do??
Reba: Yeah sweetie I do. I remember sitting outside your door fretting the same way. But I knew in my heart it was the best thing for you.
Cheyenne: Well it doesn't feel right in my heart. You know all these things that are supposed to be the right things to do, in the morning when I leave her to go to school, when I come home and she's all ready in bed, and when I have to study French Philosophy instead of playing peek-a-boo with her...well they just don't feel right Mom, not to me.

Scarlett Pomers stays seated for the entire episode. This is most likely due to the actress's knee injury, which is covered for in the next episode.

Barbra Jean says that she is the Whore of Babylon. This is an allusion to the Bible. The Whore of Babylon is a city-state mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible. She is associated with the Antichrist and the Beast of Revelation by connection with the kingdom with seven heads and ten horns.
In this episode, Barbra Jean says, "Can I give you a hug?" Reba says, "Not if I was choking on a piece of chicken." This is an allusion to the Heimlich Maneuver.
Reba tells Cheyenne that the 8-year olds are kids and that they did not take a vow of silence. This is an allusion to monks, who take vows of silence to be more devote to their God.
