When a potential new fashion club member's recent plastic surgery impresses the other members, they seek to follow in her footsteps, and pressure Quinn into doing the same, whether she needs it or not. As she tries to get Daria to help her on this quest, the doctor offers to give her some extra treatment whether she wants it or not. Will Daria enjoy watching her sister humiliate herself as she tries to get enough money to go through with the procedure? Or will she try to reason with her? Written by Daniel Timothy Dey

In a moment of weakness, Daria is nice to Quinn!
6 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This particular episode actually was a pretty responsible statement by MTV (the folks who first brought Daria to TV), as it makes a statement about the stupidity of teens getting plastic surgery. The show begins with a girl who wants to join the Fashion Club showing the girls her cute new nose-job. They are all rather impressed and Stacy insists that the members of the club all consider getting surgery themselves. So, begin incredibly insecure and a sheep, Quinn decides she MUST get a nose-job, too. However, the creepy looking doctor insists Quinn's nose is great--and suggests $6000 worth of unnecessary plastic surgery. In a moment of weakness, Daria actually feels sorry for Quinn and tells her she is perfect already. Of course, Quinn totally ignores this moment of niceness and is set for the surgery anyway...provided she can somehow come up with the money. Fortunately for common sense, the nose-job girl's nose collapses and Quinn decides to leave her cute original body intact.

As I said above, this is a socially responsible episode of the show--and it is a good one for impressionable and stupid kids to watch to prevent them also falling in line with a very disturbing recent trend. Well written and poignant--it's unusual for the series but well worth seeing.
