Reba: Cheyenne, I have tons of cute maternity clothes left from when I had Jake.
Cheyenne: No offense, Mom, but you were 35. I'm like half that.
Reba: Kyra, Cheyenne just felt the baby move.
Kyra: It's probably just gas.
Cheyenne: I don't get gas.
Kyra: We shared a room.
Lorri Ann (to Reba): Catch me up, how's the divorce going?
Reba: Well, right now we're at the "dissolution of property" stage.
Lori Ann: Two words of advice: KILL. HIM. I took Robert for everything he had.
Reba: And he deserved it, sleeping with your housekeeper.
Lorri Ann: No, That was John. Husband number two. I kinda miss him and so does my housekeeper.
[Reba laughs]
Van (to Cheyenne): I told you, I'm not going maternity shopping again. Those women look at me like they know what I did.
Cheyenne: But I need clothes that make it clear I'm pregnant, not fat.
