Daria talks Kevin into buying a motorcycle when she sees him buying a leather jacket in order to impress Brittany, but instead he settles for a moped. When he tries to perform a stunt on the Lawndale High School grounds(thanks to the prodding of his fellow pupils), he sustains a minor injury, and collides with a tree honoring former football great Tommy Sherman(see episode #1.13), causing a decline in the LHS football season, and rumors of a curse throughout Lawndale High, and beyond.

It's got a cameo by Artie AND Daria uses the word 'self-imolation!
8 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best episodes of season four. Part of this is because it does NOT feature animosity between Daria and Jane and because it is so gosh-darn funny.

Early in the episode, Daria makes a comment and Kevin takes it to mean he should buy a motorcycle. While on his scooter, he has a mishap---injuring his leg AND breaking the Tommy Sherman memorial tree (Sherman was a jerk who died in an earlier episode--"The Misery Chick"). As a result, Kevin has lost his confidence and the school team starts losing. Unexpe3ctey, this has LOTS of consequences on the town, Daria's parents and even the Fashion Club! So, it's up to Daria and Jane to set things right--and actually help the school's biggest idiot to become a man (so to speak).

This episode has a lot like. It was very funny and particularly funny bits involved the exorcism and Kevin's motivational speech to the youngsters. Very clever.
