Barbra Jean Booker Hart
Dr. Brock Hart
Dr. Susan Peters
This episode was shot on the re-dressed set of "The Hughleys" after it wrapped for the season and was thought to be canceled, but when that series was unexpectedly picked up for another year, the producers built a matching set for "Reba" on a different soundstage.
This is the only episode (Disluding flashback scenes) in the entire series that Reba wears a wedding ring in.
When Reba first appeared in syndication in 2004, this was marked as the second episode, with The Honeymoons Over, Now What being the first.
The reason this show's name was changed was because the producers felt that the audience would relate better if the main actress (Reba) used her real name for the show.
One hour before the shooting of this episode, the producers quickly changed the name of the show, and main character from "Sally" to "Reba". They actually filmed a complete pilot using both names.
The original air date for this show's first episode was September 14 2001, but was delayed following the terrorist attacks on the USA on September 11, 2001.
Van: I told you it was better without a bra!
Reba: Are you aware I'm her mother?
Kyra: Don't worry Mom, I know all about birth control.
Reba: Oh really? And what age is it appropriate for a young lady to become sexually active?
Reba: Have I mentioned you're my favorite?
Barbra Jean: There she is, the mother of the bride.
Reba: (Crying) You were only suppose to bring the ice.
Kyra: So when Daddy marries Barbra Jean, what am I suppose to call her anyway?
Reba: You're not suppose to call her anything, when you see her at the Wal-Mart just point to her and say "There she is. The woman who stole my daddy."
Brock: Reba, I have to marry her!
Reba: Have to? The only reason you'd have to marry her is-- Oh my god.
Cheyenne: Dad! How could you!?
Brock: Barbra Jean never talked about Dental School
Reba: She wasn't alive back then!
Reba: (Yelling at Brock) You ruined it! You ruined everything! We were suppose to grow old together!
Reba: Why is it we're the only family in Texas without a gun?
Cheyenne: Getting married is so much fun! We should have done this in our junior year!
Reba: No honey you were smart to wait...
Reba: Momma's got a dark side.
(The kids are deciding who they want to live with)
Jake: I wanna stay with Mom.
Cheyenne: I want to go with Dad.
Kyra: Is boot camp an option?
Kyra: Barbra Jean's pregnant!
Jake: I thought Cheyenne was pregnant!
Cheyenne: Shut up, Jake!
Kyra: Back off. He's just a stupid kid.
Jake: I'm not stupid. She left the pregnancy test in the trash can.
For the first episode the scenes in the opening credits go like this; It starts with a black screen with blue letters R-E-B-A flashing in the backround as a solid Reba forms, and the letters in the backround fade to black. Then it shows four different clips of Reba on a soundstage with a blue backround. Then it shows another clip of Reba on a soundstage with Created By Alison M. Gibson in blue letters, on the left side.
For this episode, the cast is credited during the scene after the theme song.
All of the scenes in the first season theme song (starting in episode two) are from this episode:
Reba's scene is from a part that didn't air (possibly a blooper) where she stands at the counter and laugh
Brock's scene is from the part where Reba says you can get pregnant from in a hotel hot tub, using the part where Brock smiles.
Cheyenne's scene is from the part where Van kneels down to propose to her and she smiles.
Van's scene is from an unaired part where he and Cheyenne kiss.
Kyra's scene is from the part where Reba says the food is ruined, and Kyra says much like our lives, using the part where Reba gives her an annoyed look, and Kyra looks at her like she's in trouble.
Jake's scene is from a blooper where he puts his hands up and smiles.
Barbara Jean's scene is from the part where she walks in the door, and Reba frowns.
The shortened version of the theme song "I'm a Survivor" is used in this episode, using the lines, "Who I am is who I want to be,I'm a Survivor" while showing Reba.
During the wedding at the end, Reba's "Walk On" is heard.
This episode was taped on April 16th 2001.
Goof/Nitpick: Near the end of the episode, in the scene where Cheyenne and Reba are talking about Chyenne's and Van's wedding (which went totally wrong), the camera goes slightly out of focus (gets a little bit blurry), just before Cheyenne asks to wear Reba's wedding dress. According to the audio commentary on that episode, they kept the version when the camera goes out of focus because they thought it was Joanna Garica's and Reba McEntire's best take (out of all 5 takes).
Since President George W. Bush had declared September 14th a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance, the WB did not air its fall premiere schedule on that day, as was originally planned. It was pushed back to the 19th, then the 21st and was yet again pushed back for a telethon. The series then debuted on October 5.
Writer/Creator/Producer Allison M. Gibson is a Houston, Texas (the same place the series is set) native.
The three new Friday WB series premiered to the highest numbers ever for the weblet. "Reba" was the network's standout for the night scoring a 4.4/7 and came in second in 14 of the 53 markets across the country.
Other titles considered for the series were Sally, Deep in the Heart, The Reba McEntire Show and Family Planning. However, Sally was going to be the title of the show, until the last minute.
