    Van tells Reba that he doesn't have an agent, and she tells him he should get one. Later he tells them all that an agent he called over's gonna interview the family. They're already, but BJ comes over and Van gets worried. Then the agent comes over, and as usual BJ makes a toral fool out of herself. Cheyenne starts to make dumb comments. Then Brock comes over and says something sexist to the agent. Then he and BJ have a huge arguement and Van brings them in a kitchen. Cheyenne makes a comment about Van knocking her up at 17, and runs embarresed to the kitchen, leaving Reba and Sadie alone. They chat, and realize they have alot in common, like they're both divorced and one of their children lives with their father. Reba asks if she's like to go out sometime, and Sadie tells her this is what she'd been hoping would happen when she "switched teams". Reba's confused, and Saie tells her she's gay and Van tells her Reba was also gay Reba asks him later why he told her that. He tells her he made a comment aabout gay people and wanted Sadie to realize he wasn't homophobic so he told her his mother-in-law was "super gay He begs Reba to go out with Sadie, or she may not represent him.moreless
  • Reba gets called gay

    In this episode, Reba is sad that Lori Ann won't be flying in. When Van gets a new agent, he tells her that his mother-in-law is gay in order to cover up for an inappropriate joke. When the agent comes over to the house to meet the family, Reba unknowingly asks her out and that's where the comedy starts! I thought this episode was extremely well-written. There was that non-stop humor, but at the same time, the episode never actually insulted gay people in anyway. I believe that the show is so much greater when Reba is the one with the problem every once in a while. That's what made this episode a fantastic asset to the series. Good job "Reba"!moreless
  • Van gets an agent that can help him with his football. Reba missing her friendship with Lori Ann decides to ask the agent to hang out with her as a friend not knowing that Van had lied and told this lesbian agent that Reba is gay, but all ends great.moreless

    This is the best episode of Reba that I have ever seen! Its funny and I couldn't stop laughing about what Van told his agent, Sadie. The look on Reba's face was so surprising and funny that I knew that this was up in my top episodes. This is one of the reasons why I watch this series. For starters: Its so hilarious and Van and Reba end up in funny sticky situations that they must laugh the audience right out to get out of the lie. Van's humorous ways and Reba's funny life style make this the best episode ever!!moreless
  • In this episode Van gets an agent. Reba wants a new friend but then finds out that Van told her that she was gay.

    Ths is my second favorite episode ever. It's really funny and it's a very creative idea. It always makes me laugh when i see it. I've seen it 4 times. Jake was funny when he was taking about how he cut wholes in his shirt for halloween after Reba said no.
