Episode Summary

Reba throws a baby shower for Cheyenne. She warns Brock to get the kids something practical, rather than the big screen TV he had planned on buying. At the end of the shower Reba gives Cheyenne a quilt she spent the last 8 months making out of Cheyenne's old baby clothes. Then Brock walks in and hands Cheyenne the keys to a brand new (well, used) car. Reba gets upset because they had a deal with their kids: they get a new car when they can pay for half. Cheyenne and Van need to pay for their half of the car before they can use it. Cheyenne starts doing work around the house and Van takes a job at a pizza place. When Van gets promoted to pizza delivery driver, Reba has to do the driving since Van doesn't technically have a car yet. Exhausted from essentially taking on Van's job, Reba cuts the kids a check for their half of the car and calls it a baby shower gift. When they run out to sit in their new/used car, Brock questions her change of heart. Reba explains that she just got credit for giving the kids the car that Brock bought for them, and rips up the check.moreless

  • Aww, Cheyenne has her baby shower!!

    I liked this episode okay. Cheyenne has a baby shower and gets lots of presents. She even gets a car seat for the baby, even though she doesn't have a car. Reba tells her that she can have her own car when she can pay for half of it, so she tries to earn the cash by doing housework, like washing the dishes. Well... she doesn't do so well when she washes the paint off some old plates that were hand-painted by her great great grandma. Well, I'm glad it works out for her in the end, because she gets the car.

    I liked the episode okay, but it wasn't one of my real favorites.moreless
  • Cheyenne has her baby shower!

    When Cheyenne has her baby shower, Reba instructs Brock to get somthing practical, not a TV like he was gonna get. While at the party, Brock comes in, and announces that he bought Cheyenne a used car. Reba is irretated, because she told Cheyenne she couldn't get a car until she was able to pay for half. Cheyenne decides to assist Reba, and Van gets a job at Fat Tony's Pizza. When Cheyenne ruins Reba's great grandmother's hand- painted plates, and Van gets a delivery job, forcing Reba to drive him to his deliveries, Reba decides enough is enough. She finally gives them the money they need, and after they've given it to Brock, Reba rips the check up!moreless
  • An awesome episode.

    Cheyenne's baby shower seems so boring except for the betting and BJ "trying" out the breast pump. Reba's quilt is the best gift Cheyenne got until Brock went behind Reba's back and bought Cheyenne a car. It's funny how when Brock tells them they have to pay for half of the car they know it's Reba's fault. It's horrible that Cheyenne ruined Reba's best china. The uniform Van had to wear at work is hilarious because it looks like something somebody would wear at Christmastime. Reba having to drive Van around to deliver pizzas is funny because she caved in. The best part of the episode is when Reba payed for the rest of the car of course Van and Cheyenne didn't see Reba rip up the checkmoreless
