One running gag involves Quinn's refusal to acknowledge Daria as her sister in public (until season 5). Usually, Daria is referred to as her "cousin" but has also been called by Quinn, the Fashion Club, and various others as, among other things: "That girl who lives with Quinn", Quinn's "little friend", a cabana girl (namely the "cabana girl's distant cousin"), a visiting exchange student, a relative, an au pair, a hotel maid, an out-of-town volunteer worker, a librarian, and a member of the Witness Protection Program. Quinn also called herself Daria's "trainer". See more »

I started watching Daria when I was in college and absolutely fell in love with the show. Daria and Jane's friendship is probably the best aspect of the show, and anyone who has had a close friendship like that will probably agree with me. As a matter of fact, I still hang out with my Daria (I'm definitely more the Jane) to this day. And I totally have the memories of High School and my Brittany and Kevin - like schoolmates as well. Most people didn't like the whole Jane/Tom/Daria love triangle, but I think it was one of the things that made Daria's character more vulnerable and more human. And I really loved how the series ended with Daria realizing that shutting everyone out in her life was not the answer. I only wish I had made such a realization at that age! All in all, I say that Daria is a wonderful coming-of-age show that should be enjoyed for generations to come.
