With Jane's birthday approaching, Trent asks Daria to help him select a suitable gift; in previous years he has just bought her more art supplies and wants to get something different. As they look around Trent takes Daria in to a piercing parlour and she ends up being talking into getting her belly button pierced! Inevitably it itches the next day and she is forced to admit that she only got it because she was trying to impress Trent. While this is going on Helen and Quinn take part in a mother and daughter fashion show which goes as well as expected.
This was a pretty funny episode; it was nice to see Daria do something silly for once rather than being the voice of reason; the fact that the piercing closed wasn't a big surprise as it meant that she didn't really change during the episode; it did however provide a good laugh when Quinn tried to tell their parents about it. Quinn's fashion show provided a few giggles but nothing unexpected; it was definitely the secondary plot. Over all this was well worth watching; mostly to watch how Daria behaves differently when she is with Trent.
