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

When Brooke returns to school with her new cute, surgically improved nose the fashion club are falling over themselves to compliment her. Afterwards Quinn decides that her nose could do with some work too. She gets Daria to accompany her when she goes to see the plastic surgeon... it turns out she doesn't need a new nose; but could do with $6000 dollars worth of other work to give her the 'perfect' face and Daria is told she could do with $20,000 worth of surgery to look like Quinn. Naturally Quinn believes she really needs the work and Daria is adamant that she doesn't. Daria is also given something the doctor things she might need... a couple of fake breasts! Back at school it turns out the rest of the fashion club has had nose jobs and Quinn sets about trying to raise $6000 and Daria does something that does not come naturally; she is nice to Quinn and tells her that she is perfect without a surgeon's help.
This was a fine episode with a message: teenagers don't need cosmetic surgery. The fact that it had a message didn't mean it was devoid of laughs; Jane saying to Daria 'Show me your boobs' was one of the funniest moments of the series even though we knew she was talking about the fake ones which were in a box! Upchuck's reaction to them was almost as funny too. There was a secondary storyline where Kevin had to approach people while made up to look hideous as part of a sadistic experiment for Ms Barch; this was mildly amusing but not as good as the main story. This is definitely not one to miss.
