Jane: [Quinn is at Jane's doorstep] What are *you* doing here?
Quinn: Um, I need to use your phone.
Jane: What's wrong with your phone?
Quinn: Nothing. Can I spend the night?
Jane: Are you kidding?
Quinn: My mother says I can't stay home alone.
Jane: I won't say a word. I'll even spring for the keg, but you have to pay for the dry cleaning.
Quinn: It's too last-minute to throw a party.
Jane: Then just talk on the phone all night. Ask your friends, if they could be a nail polish, what color they would be and why.
Quinn: I'm sick of that game.

Daria and Jodie get to meet a whole new class of jerks!
6 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Daria and Jodie are both invited to an open house at a prestigious prep school. It's a great opportunity but you wonder if either girl would fit in there. Plus, you wonder how accepting such a school would be. But, unfortunately, the kids at this school turn out to be just as shallow as those at Lawndale--just in a totally different way. Also, the biggest problem with this visit occurs when Helen meets Jodie's mother, Michele--a very defensive lady who always seems to take offense at everything Helen says. Plus, Helen does say a few dumb things--so the sparks sure begin to fly. It sure is fun watching Michele get mad and Helen trying to back out of a painful conversation again and again! In a cute side story, Quinn finds that staying with each of the Fashion Club members during this time is impossible and where she finally ends up is pretty ironic!

All in all, a cute episode and one worth seeing. By the way, I loved the part where Jake was sleeping with a slide show--only to wake up and yell out "Hey....my old alma mater!". See it to understand more.....
