Episode Summary

EDIT
When Reba learns that Van is in charge of the family budget and has Cheyenne documenting all her purchases in an expense journal, she advises him to treat Cheyenne more as an equal. Unfortunately, Van decides the best solution is to start giving Cheyenne a weekly allowance for her household duties, which obviously doesn't sit well with his wife. Meanwhile, Barbra Jean discovers that Jake has started a lucrative business selling soda - against school policy - to his classmates.moreless

  • This episode basiclly talks about money.

    I havn't seen this whole episode but of everything i've seen it looks pretty good. It was funny at the end when B.J came in and was yelling about like candy and soda and stuff and putting them on the table for Jake and blah blah blah. The idea about Jake selling sodas was very creative.

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Van: You know what else I wonder about? What if lobsters love jacuzzis? Like what if right before we drop em in the water, they think we're the nicest people ever? You know what that would be? Ironic.

    • Van: You know what I always wondered? What if termites love camping? It's like one minute they think they're on this cool camping trip, next minute they're dead? Ever wonder about that?
      Reba: I think everybody wonders about that.

    • Cheyenne: Mom...
      Reba: Oh, you're talking to me now?
      Cheyenne: No. Actually, I'm talking to myself. Cheyenne, if Van tries to talk to you, try to figure out a way let him know you're not talking to him. Okay Cheyenne, I will! (Leaves)
      Van: Van, it's Van. Nice choice in a wife, you moron! (Leaves)
      Reba: Reba. It's Reba. How is it working out living in a nut house?

    • Cheyenne: (Speaking to Reba.) You told Van to think! Are you insane?

    • Van: But the checks have my name on them.
      Brock: The checks have your name on them. You're an idiot!

    • Reba: Hey guys, the parties over here, then zap.
      Van: You lost me.

    • Original International Air Dates:

    • In a rather strange and foreshadowing coincidence, during the scene when Cheyenne and Van start talking again in the kitchen after the fight and Reba tries to set them straight, there are two building blocks on the table that say "CW", and they are in the area of the video frame where the network logo would be. Of course, this is probably no coincidence at all since this episode was filmed on January 24, 2006...the day that it was announced that the WB and UPN would merge to form the new CW television network! This visual joke was continued in several other episodes throughout the remainder of the series, although the blocks' location changed (they appeared in at least 3 episodes on the bookshelf next to the couch in the living room and on the counter next to the bookshelf on another episode!).

    • The scene in the season 6 theme song where Jake sneaks in the front door is from this episode.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The title of this episode is an allusion to the comic strip titled, Baby Blues It was first published in 1996 and is about a husband and a wife who deal with the challenges of raising a family.
