* GoshDangItToHeck: Reba didn't do this at first, resulting Barbra Jean, who was present at the time, to try to "correct" Reba toward this. In latter seasons Reba is actually doing this rather involuntarily. There isn't much swearing in the series as a whole.



** Early in the episode, Barbra Jean catches Kyra at it. Barbra Jean is happy, whereas Kyra sadly mutters to Reba: "Remember me."

** At the end of the episode, Reba blurts it out accidentally, causing her to have an OhCrap moment upon realizing what she just said, before she becomes visibly annoyed when Barbra Jean turns out to have heard it and proceeds to cheer for it ("YEAH! She likes me!").

* DramaticPause: Several times throughout the series. Example include Jake's opinion to Van's poem dedicated to [[CoolCar Rhonda]]: "It's great... to a second grader!", as well as Cheyenne's announcement of her homemade meal: "Dinner will be ready in 10 minutes... just as soon as the meat stops boiling."

Added DiffLines:

* GotMeDoingIt: The third season episode "Regarding Henry" has Barbra Jean's RhymesOnADime phrases (most notably "okey-dokey, Smokey") having this effect InUniverse.

Added DiffLines:

* TwoWordsICantCount: In the episode "Reba the Landlord", Van says "let it go" and "paper plates" quickly and insists on claiming each phrase as one word. Reba tries to correct Van once before [[NotSoDifferent doing it herself (using the phrase "let it go") late in the episode]].

Added DiffLines:

* SpoiledBrat: Cheyenne was like this at first but, thankfully, [[CharacterDevelopment developes]] out of this as the series goes on. Ironically, many people point out that ''Kyra'' ends up being ''worse'' than Cheyenne as the series goes on, as she frequently gets away with her condescending, if downright ''abusive'' at times behavior and yet she frequently complains that she's not getting enough attention.

* AnalogyBackfire / ComplimentBackfire: At the start of the sixth season, Barbra Jean loses a lot of weight, causing Van to gawk at her a lot more -- which upsets Cheyenne. Barbra Jean's attempt at making Cheyenne feel better does no favor for the latter.
-->'''Barbra Jean''': Don't get upset, Cheyenne. You're like a bleached-out... [[TheBradyBunch Jan Brady]].
-->'''Cheyenne''': Jan? [[FlatWhat Jan Brady.]] I'm Marcia. Marcia, Marcia, MARCIA!!! *storms off*



* BlindMistake: Reba in one episode, during which she tries to take care of herself while still recovering from an eye surgery ("tries" being the operative word here, as drinking water out of a potted plant and spreading peanut butter on a sponge doesn't count as proof of the ability to successfully take care of oneself), with Barbra Jean attempting to help Reba without Reba knowing.

** "Crap" gets stated when a character is forced to acknowledge and accept unpleasant truth. Reba uses it most often, but Brock, Van, Cheyenne, and Barbra Jean each have also used it at least once.


Added DiffLines:

* DietEpisode: Primarily for Barbra Jean, but Cheyenne volunteers herself ''and'' Reba into it to show support for Barbra Jean.


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Just as likely to be shortened as "crap" as its fuller version. Reba uses it most often, but Brock, Van, Cheyenne, and Barbra Jean each have also used it at least once.

* LethalChef: Cheyenne. Barbra Jean tries to teach her in one episode, and it backfires horribly; while [[DrowningMySorrows drowning her sorrows]] at her complete failure, she mentions how she taught her niece how to cook lasagna when she was ''six years old'' and worked at a church summer camp where she taught blind kids to cook, and she still couldn't make any progress with Cheyenne. [[FridgeBrilliance She could have been lying while drunk and was only fed up with Cheyenne's progress, though]] when Reba comes home and Barbara Jean explains it, Reba simply agrees and says she's been there.

* StopCopyingMe: One of the men Reba and Lori Ann in the SpeedDating session claims to "like making people laugh"... by copying what the woman he meets says in a mocking tone. Reba and Lori Ann, whom he meets separately, are NOT amused.

* MySisterIsOffLimits: Barbra Jean's brother Buzzer shares the same views as their father regarding Brock: he took her away from their hometown. He is prone in having such a scary TranquilFury bouts whenever he talks to Brock, who is deathly afraid of him. For proof, he cut Brock's ear off and still keeps the piece with him.

Added DiffLines:

* SpeedDating: During the second season, Cheyenne sends Reba to a speed dating event to help her get back on the horse after her divorce. Lori Ann comes along because it's "like little bite-sized man samples!" Reba ends up getting a date out of it, while Lori Ann doesn't.

Added DiffLines:

* CosmeticCatastrophe: During the first season, Reba and Lori Ann have a makeover once. They end up having more makeup on their faces than they'd like.
-->'''Reba''': Now we know why the makeovers were ''free''.
-->'''Lori Ann''': My last car didn't have this much paint in it.
