Occasionally, "Daria" had plots that were contrived--featuring events that never would happen at any school. In this case, the school is sponsoring a Casino Nite on a cruise ship--talk about ridiculous. But, despite being nearly impossible to believe, it's well worth seeing.
Before going on the cruise, Quinn meets a hot older man who agrees to take her on the school's Casino Nite. She thinks this will make her the envy of the party, but when he doesn't show, the night turns out to be a bust. Mr. and Mrs. Morgendorffer come along for the ride and get to spend time with the sleazes who own the crappy ship. As for Mr. DeMartino, he tries to get out of chaperoning and SHOULD have told everyone about his gambling addiction--and it has hilarious results. As for Daria and Jane they do what they normally do--sit back and relax--making clever quips and laughing at the idiots.
Must-see scenes are the "Titanic" scene (Ms. Barch is brilliant) and Brittany and Kevin's brilliant evening. A very funny episode that can't help but make you laugh even if it is ridiculous. And, speaking of ridiculous, this show perpetuates an insane cliché--the 'perfect' poker hand. Helen is dealt a hand whose odds are 32 in 2,598,960. Such nearly impossible poker hands (such as four of a kind and straight flushes happen all the time in films and one TV) never occur in real life and most poker players NEVER have such hands ever!
