* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Between "Don't Mess With Taxes" and "The Goodbye Guy", Steve Howey got a hair cut. When Van and Cheyenne head down stairs during the night (thinking someone broke in), this gets [[LampshadeHanging pointed out]]:
-->'''Cheyenne''': Wait a minute, Van... When I went to sleep last night, didn't you have hair?
-->'''Van''': Yeah, I know... You know how I like to go to bed [[TooDumbToLive with gum in my mouth]]? (rubs head) ''Well, I'm not doing that anymore!''

Added DiffLines:

* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Van suggests the high school enemies Cheyenne and Bridgette to "hug and make up". A long LaughTrack and the women staring at his perverted look heavily implied this.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In "Issues", while Reba is lecturing Van about how he's a rookie in the business of real estate and she's the experienced one just as the former interrupted the latter in selling a property to some interesting buyers, said buyers end up pilfering the whole living room. It's only more ironic since Reba boasts about how she's a professional.


Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: What Brock's midlife crisis made him do with Barbra Jean, kick starting the series.
** Barbra Jean has no shame falling for other guys ''even after she married Brock''. ''[[UpToEleven Not even she lets Reba get closer to them]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* SmallNameBigEgo: In order to feel more important, Brock rudely tries to get a certified handy man (vaguely hitting on Reba) to refer him as Dr. Hart just because he was fixing all the poor handiwork Brock did to the kitchen appliances. Later on, Brock repairs (wrecks) the ice maker ''which wasn't even broken in the first place''.

Added DiffLines:

* DumbJock: Van, until his stupidity was replaced by insanity and stopped being a jock.
** His ''entire'' football team ''and'' the manager are this, [[YourMindMakesItReal as they all started feeling sick in their stomachs as soon as they realized Reba had used something else than potato salad to follow the incredibly specific football bible they had]]. Their sick feeling only went away when Reba had brought real potato salad while they were losing too much during a game, rekindling their morale. [[spoiler:Turns out the bucket she brought wasn't really potato salad, but it still helped the team to win in the end as she had planned]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheAlcoholic: Cheyenne constantly is [[DrowningMySorrows drowning herself in alcohol]] after Van's football career was completely stopped due to his spinal condition getting worse, but she moves on after many pep talks and encouragement. She briefly falls into SmokingIsNotCool to [[BrokenAesop distract herself from drinking]], much to Reba's chagrin.
** Van never had an alcohol problem and initially was covering up for Cheyenne, but when he during a party tried to prevent Reba from drinking a single cup of alcohol all because she had taken a pill from Cheyenne's purse meant to discourage drinking instead of healing stress, Cheyenne asked him why not just toss the wine down the drain if he was feeling tipsy of drinking too much. Van really cannot pass up on drinking too much.


Added DiffLines:

* SmokingIsNotCool: A whole episode was dedicated to this in order for all three adults to convince an all-knowing Kyra not to fall for smoking. This only ends up revealing the fact Brock was (and still is) an avid smoker, and he used to smoke pot in his younger days. Barbra Jean is the only one completely shocked from this revelation.
-->'''Barbra Jean''': Were you ''high'' when you married me?!
-->''({{Beat}})''
-->'''Reba''': [[DeadpanSnarker A lot of people ask that.]]
** Cheyenne so casually fell for smoking while she dealt with her alcohol addiction.

Added DiffLines:

* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Cheyenne and Kyra both show shades of it. During the show, Cheyenne pulls herself out of that trope and ends up becoming a good wife and mother. Kyra, however, stays firmly in the trope.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDreaded: The whole family sans Kyra is deathly afraid of getting on Reba's nerves whenever anyone does something underhanded behind her back, and she is almost always the OnlySaneWoman who knows what's best for everyone (though Kyra, after getting older, takes decisions that Reba thinks are illogical but do contain some respectable challenges).
** They're so afraid of her that Van and Cheyenne thought that a complete family like Brock and Barbra Jean was a good first option for Elizabeth's guardian instead of Reba because ''[[LoopholeAbuse they would be dead before having to hear another one of Reba's lectures]]''.


Added DiffLines:

** A subversion for Van, who realizes he was starting to become like his overbearing father when he trains Jake to be a good soccer player by constantly being too intense during matches.
