Quinn: I don't get abstract art. Who wants to look at a bunch of squiggly six-eyed people when you can get those really pretty cat paintings on the shopping network? Not that I would ever waste money on art.
Trent Lane: Hey, Janey. You got any money?
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.
Trent Lane: Uh, who are you?
Jane: You remember Quinn, Daria's sister?
Trent Lane: Oh, yeah. Daria's sister. Hey.
Quinn: Excuse me, I have a name.
Trent Lane: Right. Daria's...

A private education for Daria?
30 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Two pupils from Lawndale High, Daria and Jodie, are invited to attend an open day at a prestigious private school from where they can expect to go on to top universities and high powered jobs; if they don't burn out. When they arrive it soon becomes apparent to Daria that its pupils are just as shallow as those at Lawndale; they are just shallow about different things. While the girls are getting to meet the students there Daria's parents chat with Jodie's; in their own way they are just as peculiar as the Morgendorffers; her father is only interested in his son and her mother has a massive chip on her shoulder thinking every comment Helen makes must be based on her race. While the rest of her family is away Quinn is meant to be staying with Sandi but she falls out with one member of the fashion club after another and is forced to seek shelter with somebody quite unexpected: Jane Lane.

This was a pretty funny episode; I liked the fact that Daria had just as much disdain for the 'intelligent' shallow types at the private school as she does for the idiots at Lawndale and the way Trent only referred to Quinn as 'Daria's Sister' was hilarious. The conversations between Helen and Jodie's mother were as funny as they were awkward; neither of them came across well! Once again a good episode; this season hasn't had a dud yet.
