Trent Lane: Listen, I got to get to rehearsal. I'm late.
Daria Morgendorffer: How do you know? You don't wear a watch.

Daria Morgendorffer: You know, Trent, somehow that makes perfect sense.
Trent Lane: Sorry again about, you know... everything.
Daria Morgendorffer: That's okay.
Trent Lane: All right then, Daria. See you around.

Jesse Moreno: This was the first set!

"Daria: Road Worrier (#1.11)" (1997)
Trent: We're thinking of changing our name. Do you think if we spelled Mystik Spiral with two y's it would be better?

Trent: Daria, do you ever feel like you are wasting your life?
Daria: Only when I'm awake.

Trent: Hey man, we're artists. Who knows where we'll be in five years.
Daria: [Thinking to herself] Still living over your parents' garage?
Jane: [Loudly whispering] Say it, Daria. Whatever you're thinking, say it. If you don't, they'll go on like this for hours.
Jesse Moreno: We've got a vision.
Trent: Eyes on the prize, man. Eyes on the prize.
Jesse Moreno: Yeah, and this guy's not about selling out.
Trent: No way.
Jane: 'Cause for that to happen, you'd need someone interested in buying.
[pause]
Jane: Well someone had to pick up the slack!

Trent: [Daria. returning from peeing in the bushes. climbs into the van and sits] Cool, Daria?

Trent: [cars begin slowly moving] Hey, looks like the traffic is letting up.
Daria: [to Jane] They're... not going to make fun of me?
Jane: For peeing in the woods? They're in a band, Daria. Those boys puke on each other on a regular basis.
Jesse Moreno: [to Trent] That reminds me, you owe me a shirt.


"Daria: Lane Miserables (#3.8)" (1999)
Daria Morgendorffer: [Daria, trying to imagine her future, comes home to an out-of-shape Trent] Trent, honey, I'm home!

Daria Morgendorffer: Don't worry, Trent. I'm sure Mystik Spiral is on the brink of success...
Trent Lane: We really should change the name.
Daria Morgendorffer: ...and I don't mind working double shifts at the gene splicing lab until you make it.
Trent Lane: Face it, Daria, we're never going to get our big break. I gotta get a real job. Um, I'll need some money to get my tattoo removed.
Daria Morgendorffer: Honey, we have to save right now. Trent Junior needs glasses. Thick ones.
Trent Lane: Don't you understand? Every time I look at this stupid tattoo, it reminds me how I've wasted my life. But I'm not giving up. I'm determined to lie here on the couch until things turn around.
Daria Morgendorffer: Oh, Trent. Whatever happened to the man I married?
Trent Lane: We never got married, remember? I overslept.

Trent Lane: Umm... there were some phone messages I almost forgot about.
[Refers to writing on hand]
Trent Lane: Let's see... Penny's coming in from Costa Rica. Some kind of problem with a volcano, and dad's finished taking pictures of Celtic rock formations. He's on his way back to print.
Jane: What's that written on your other hand?
Trent Lane: ..."Change name of Mystic Spyral to Something Something Explosion."

Trent Lane: I'm sorry I broke the rules. We don't really have any rules at our house, right Janey?

Vincent Lane: She was just standing there a few minutes... uhh... days ago.

Trent Lane: That they'll only spend it on booze?
Jane Lane: Never mind.

Trent Lane: Hey, I already thought of that. As soon as we get there, we find a bar, and we don't leave it until we're unconscious.
Jane: Good plan. But, first of all, they probably wouldn't serve me. Second, I don't want to pass out. And third, right before *you* pass out, you'll decide it's time to be *honest* with everyone.
Trent Lane: Oh, yeah. Bad idea. Don't want to be honest with Aunt Ellie about her vacation pictures.
Jane: [grimacing in disgust] Or Cousin Jimmy about his modeling career.
Trent Lane: Or Aunt Bernice about her hats.
Jane: Who's Aunt Bernice?
Trent Lane: You know, from Middlebury? She wears those straw hats. Thinks they're country or something. They look like the kind they put on horses to keep the sun off their heads.
[Jane looks over to her left, at a scowling old woman sitting next to her, who happens to be Aunt Bernice - wearing a large straw hat like the ones Trent mentioned. Clearly she heard what Trent said about her]

Quinn: Money? Are you going out? I wouldn't mind going out for a while. Of course, I don't know if I'd want to go out with someone dressed like that.
