    When Reba notices the family's running out of money, she decides it's time to get a job. She goes to Ryan's Department store for an interview. She doesn't get the job. Then Van and Cheyenne bring in groceries and tell Reba they've applied for food stamps. Reba is irritated, and goes with them to get them taken off. When there, the clerk misunderstands and think she wants to be put on food stamps herself. Reba tells her that there's no need, but the women points out that Reba's acting judgemental. Reba decides to be put on foodstamps. The next day, we see her sitting on the couch watching TV in her pajamas, and eating popcorn. Brock and BJ come when they are going with Cheyenne and Van, Elizabeth, and Henry to the zoo. They point out that the Reba they know wouldn't give up, and she decides to go back to Ryan's department store. She talks to him and he agrees to give her a job. Just then he notices her car in a handicapped spot, and he comes out, revealing he's in a wheelchair. He decides not to give her the job. So Reba talks to Brock who agrees to give Reba a job at his dental office, which sets up for the next episode...moreless

    I loved this episode for the simple fact the writers went somewhere that most sitcoms don't go!



    This episode a lot of people could relate too rather they like to admit it or not, some times in a bad situation you need outside help and its not always fun to admit that!!!



    It was interesting seeing Reba finally realizing in order for her to truly survive, she's gonna have to depend on outside help!!!moreless
