    • Middleton College was established as a colonial religious college in 1776. While not conclusive by any means, this does make for a strong argument in favor of Lawndale being located somewhere on the East Coast, since only the original thirteen British colonies existed at that time.

    • Last episode with the first version of the opening theme song ("You're Standing On My Neck"). The following episode ("Malled") uses the more standard second version.

    Trivia (5)

    • Jake's car has an upside-down Anarchy symbol for a hood ornament.

    • At the end, when Daria and Jane are eating pizza, Jane is not wearing her black tights, but in the last shot she suddenly is wearing her tights.

    • Daria did not get Quinn and herself thrown out of the college. Quinn got Daria and herself thrown out of the college because Daria stayed with the tour guide and Quinn was with some Ferternity boys drinking beer.

    • After the camera angle zooms in and out, the statue and two books have moved slightly. Also, the blue book is now more closed than it was before the camera zoom.

    • In the 2nd Movie "Is it College Yet?" Jake tries to pressure Daria to go to Middleton
