Episode Summary

EDIT
The high school's principal Mrs. Hodge calls Reba and Brock into her office to give them a brochure on an alternative school for pregnant mothers, called Hollyhouse, that she feels Cheyenne should attend. When Reba returns to say that Cheyenne's decision is to stay in her regular high school the principal makes it clear that this wasn't a request. When Reba insists that Cheyenne be allowed to stay, the principal suspends the pregnant teen for three weeks, enough time to ruin her grades.

First, Brock brings Barbra Jean into the group, making Reba more than unhappy. Then they begin discussing Cheyenne's situation and Reba comes up with an idea. If they keep Van out of school as long as Cheyenne is out of school, the principal will have to give in and let them both back. Why? They'll lose their chance at a football championship without star cornerback Van.

Cheyenne and Van have been staying at home in protest, but as the next big game approaches without any word from the Principal Hodge, everyone begins to get nervous and doubt Reba's plan.

At the last minute the principal arrives (she was booed by the football crowd during pre-game warm-ups) and says that Cheyenne is welcome back to school. But suddenly Cheyenne says she won't go back. When Reba takes her aside to ask why, Cheyenne admits that before all this happened she was a role model to the younger girls and what kind of role model is she now that she's a married and pregnant 17-year-old? When Reba explains that standing up for what she believes in was the right thing to do, Cheyenne realizes that it's that action that makes her a role model and decides to return to school.moreless
