Daria's friendship with Tom causes problems with Jane
After Jake accidentally starts a kitchen fire the family has to decamp to a hotel for a couple of weeks while the house is repainted. Having been upgraded to a luxury hotel Quinn is having a great time as one of the bellboys, who says his uncle owns the hotel, pays her rather a lot of attention; giving her freebies and even upgrading her to the exclusive presidential suite. Before this upgrade she was meant to be sharing a room with Daria... until Daria decided she couldn't stand it any longer and went to stay with Jane. This move leads to tensions between Jane and Daria as Tom seems to spend far more time with Daria than with Jane causing her to get jealous. Jane isn't the only one getting jealous; Sandy is clearly jealous of the attention Quinn is receiving and suggests her suitor may be a stalker.
This episode contained a good mix of comedy and drama as well as advancing the plot arc involving Jane, her boyfriend Tom and his increasing closeness to Daria. As is often the case Jake is the source of much of the humour as he rants about being served regular rather than decaf coffee just then starting the fire and Quinn's friendship with the bellboy had a funny and unexpected twist. The goings on between Jane, Tom and Jane may not have been as funny but they provided believable drama as Jane got jealous of Daria and Tom's increasing friendship; this nicely mirrored Daria's jealousy when Tom first started dating Jane... I look forward to seeing how things progress there.
