Added DiffLines:

* ShrinkingViolet: Before the last seasons, Van is so easily driven into a corner by people with higher authority that he starts spouting nonsense to save his hide. It's only after the last seasons that he starts growing a little bit of a backbone.

* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: Reba's trademark Oklahoma drawl, naturally.
** The rest of the cast did seem to be trying to affect Southern accents during the first season (Barbara Jean, especially.) Most didn't work very well, so by the second season, they just gave up.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: In "Fight or Flight", Van and Cheyenne are invited to a sports channel interview, which has Cheyenne all nervous while Van is thrilled to be on TV. Right before the show goes live, the roles switch. Now Van is absurdly nervous (and even runs away and pukes) while Cheyenne handles it with joy.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: All of the males in the series are victims of this. Brock by both Reba ''and'' Barbra Jean, Van by Cheyenne, Jake by Kyra and Cheyenne (though he's only abused emotionally, not physically like the other two).

* AbusiveParents: Brock's father John D. was an all-around asshole who kept treating his own son like dirt and showed no support for him, but he was only nice to Reba and other people instead. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold The problem was that John D. was outright awful at expressing his feelings to his son - as evidenced by how he confined in Reba - and failed to admit it after dying from a heart attack]].

* MistakenForRacist: In "No Good Deed," Barbra Jean dressing and talking like a stereotypical black person comes across to the 20 black people she invited without permission to Reba's house. No one calls her out on it, but they all just stare at her for being crazy (and later because people who never met her ''can't believe she exists'').
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Brock, upon walking into Cheyenne's baby shower: "Look at all these beautiful women. (Looks at Lori Ann) You must be security." [[VolleyingInsults Lori Ann retorted in return with: "I thought we agreed not to hire a clown."]] In a separate episode, Reba walks into the kitchen, sees Cheyenne, Van, and Barbra Jean, and says: "Hello, loved ones. Barbra Jean."

* MiddleChildSyndrome: Kyra. The statement she gave to Brock below could serve as proof of how painfully aware she is of being left out.
-->'''Kyra''': In mom's family, it goes Elizabeth, Jake, Van, Cheyenne, and then me. When Jake got a turtle, I moved down 1 spot.
** Of course, it wasn't without merit. She mentioned that after some money that was raised to send her on a school trip to England had to be given to Cheyenne instead because she had dropped so many classes, she ran the risk of losing Elizabeth's spot in the school day care if she didn't enroll in summer school. Interestingly, in a rare case of this, Reba is painfully aware of it (most cases of this trope will have the parents be oblivious), as Reba told both Cheyenne and Kyra in a couple of gut-wrenching speeches. It was just that Reba only had so many hours in the day and Cheyenne and Van were such screw-ups, they required most of them, outright telling Brock "I have no other choice, she's the only other adult in the house."



** In the season 2 episode titled "For Sale, Cheap" Van auctions off football lessons to for Jake's school charity, most of the signees end up being single moms due to the fact that Van included a shirtless photo of himself making suggestive poses (which Cheyenne is not pleased about). A person named Terry is the top bidder. It turns out that Terry is a man. A very effeminate man who mentions having a "partner". When Van confronts Terry about the issue, Terry becomes offended and tells Van that he's not gay, with the partner he was referring to being a business partner and that he was married to a former Miss Houston. He then tells Van that he thought ''Van'' was gay. Phew.
