It’s Cash’s 16th birthday, and Bobby’s coming to town to celebrate. Reba bought Cash a new bike to make it special -- but Bobby shows up with a brand-new sports car for his son. Reba’s mad because Bobby’s spoiling them from afar, and it makes her look bad. But Bobby reveals that Cash has been calling Bobby -- and Cash wants to move back to Nashville with him. Bobby hoped the car might make things a little easier, get him a bunch of friends. But Cash does have friends in Malibu…so Cash has been playing his parents because he knows they don’t talk much.
Lillie Mae: I think you’re spoiling that boy. For your 16th birthday, I gave you a paint set.
Reba: Mama, it wasn’t a paint set. It was a can of paint, roller, brush, and directions to the fence.
Kim: Do you need me to do anything for Cash’s birthday? Because I could totally have my housekeeper call my caterer.
Bobby: Well, hello there, Mama. Shoot anybody out here yet?
Lillie Mae: Til today, wasn’t anybody worth shootin’.
Reba: He’s Disneyland Dad and I’m the lame horse ride that you put quarters in outside the drugstore.
Kim: You ungrateful little fetus!
Reba: Mama, you better go after [Kim].
Lillie Mae: Why do I need to go after her?
Reba: Because if I go over there and Bobby comes back I might miss the opportunity to murder him.
Lillie Mae: OK, but you just knock him out. This is my kill.
Reba and Bobby turn the tables on Cash, telling him they’re sending him back to Nashville to live with Bobby. His bluff called, Cash finally admits the scam to get a car out of his dad -- and that means the car is going back.
Also, Kim’s pregnant! She’s excited. But seeing Reba and her parenting challenges makes it sound really hard, and she’s really scared. She doesn’t have family around like Reba and Lillie Mae. Lillie Mae very reluctantly offers to Kim that she’s got the MacKenzies next door to help out. Lillie Mae knows she’ll regret the gesture, but it’s sweet nonetheless.
Lillie Mae: You’re already a mother to Sage.
Kim: I’m a stepmother. I got him when he was a teenager. It’s very hard to drop them on their heads and kill them when they’re 14.
Lillie Mae: I’m gonna give you the only piece of advice you need to raise your baby: Love them, feed them, and when they say “I hate you,” don’t say “I hate you” back. Of course you can, but just say it under your breath, or you’ll scar them. And they will testify against you.
Geoffrey: Uh oh. Did I just interrupt a down home telenovela moment?
Cash: Oh man, that car is a rocket -- that I drove at a safe and responsible speed at all times.
Reba: I didn’t keep your dad. I’m dang sure not gonna keep his car.
Reba: I just want you to realize that what you did, you can never do again.
Cash: Well next time I’ll certainly plan it out a lot better.
