Episode Summary

EDIT
A gazebo at the Lane residence collapses, and Jane and Trent decide to have it rebuilt because of its sentimental value to their brother, Wind. Jane tries to sell her paintings at an art fair to pay for the repairs, and winds up getting hired to re-create famous paintings for a gallery. Though this becomes financially lucrative for Jane, she gets no creative stimulation from it and contemplates quitting. Meanwhile, Trent hires three slackers to fix the gazebo, and is unsuccessful in getting them to actually do any work. At the art fair, the Fashion Club let a caricaturist draw them, and are so insulted by the drawing that they plan to sue him, a mission that they are persistent at despite Helen's advice against it. Ironically, when Jane and Trent's parents come home, they say that they plan to get rid of the gazebo; and Stacy keeps the caricature drawing because, unbeknownst to anyone else, she liked the way it turned out.moreless

        Helen: You're right Tiffany, I'm sorry.
        Tiffany: We need someone to break his fingers. Like in that show. About those guys.

      • Ms. Dafoe: Hmmm...Jane, your work assignment is similiar with one of Van Gogh's paintings.
        Daria: You might want to keep the scissors away from her ears.

      • Garry: Quit? You can't quit Garry's Gallery.
        Jane: No, that's the mafia.

      • Jane: Money. Money, money. I love money. I'd shovel it down my throat if I could.
        Daria: You're kidding, right?
        Jane: Of course, Daria. I'd chew it slowly and stop when I felt full.

      • Sandi: (talking about the caricature artist) You can have him disbarred.

      • Jane: Yeah. My ego couldn't take just being a hack. I had to be a super-hack.

      • Brittany: This is an umbrella holder made out of a real elephant's foot!
        Jane: Where's the rest of the elephant?
        Brittany: Huh? There's no elephant here.

      • Trent: Hey Janey, I'd rather balance my artistic statement than my bank statement.
        Jane: What?
        Trent: I don't know. I thought I had something there.

      • Helen: Damn it to hell! What sociopathic paralegal keeps stealing my "sign here" post-its?!

      • Jane: How much money do you have? (no answer) Trent?
        Trent: I have none, so I said nothing.

        Max: Existential? You said nihilistic!

      • (Daria has to distract the owner of the gallery, Garry)
        Daria: And just how am I supposed to do that, Mr. Phelps?

        Daria: Right, I'll give birth.
