  • Episode Description
  • As an assignment from her law firm to determine if she has the makings of a partner, Helen takes the family to a therapy spa. The psychologists there evaluate them, and it is revealed that Daria is the only one of the four who is truly well-rounded, despite her use of sarcasm to push people away. Helen, meanwhile, finds that she is a ruthless, win-at-all-costs shark who puts her career before everything else, including her family. Naturally, this gets her the promotion. Jane sets up "Jane Cam", a website that broadcasts her fairly mundane activities in her room. This does not go over well with Tom, who unwittingly shakes his ass for the entire world to see.moreless

    • Jake: That wasn't me, that was the milk talking!

    • Daria: I came to this stupid place and pretended to be well adjusted, didn't I? Helen: Hmm... Daria: Well anyway, I came to this stupid place.

    • Helen: And Quinn, well...I can't even think about what happened there, not right now.

    • Doctor: Quinn, what do you think about what just happened? Quinn: I think this spa would get a lot more business if you just offered facials.

    • Doctor: Helen, we're talking about Jake now. We'll get to your control issues soon. Helen: "Control issues"?!

    Allusions (3)

    • When Quinn interprets the "wearing each other's faces" suggestion as the plot of a movie, she's thinking of Face/Off. The movie starred Nicholas Cage and John Travolta, and the characters underwent surgery to wear each other's face to deceive those closest to their enemy.

    • Daria: Uh oh. Four flew into the cuckoo's nest. This is a play on the 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey, which takes place in an insane asylum. The novel was also adapted into a popular film starring Jack Nicholson.

    • Daria: Gee, look at the time: 1984 already! Daria is referring to the famous book 1984 by George Orwell, where people were under constant scrutiny by an all-powerful political party and executed if they didn't live up to the party's ideals (no individual thought, no love except for the party itself and it's leader, Big Brother, etc.)
