    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • At the archery range, Helen and Linda Griffin are holding their arrows in a most illogical and potentially painful way; it's positioned between their fingers instead of on top. They don't appear to experience any discomfort from this however.

      • Goof: When the Morgendorfer parents are greeting the Griffin family, the man in a Renaissance outfit walks to Jake's left side, while goth Andrea walks behind them, going the opposite direction. After the camera angle changes, Andrea has disappeared, but the Renaissance man is now walking to Jake's right, the opposite way he was originally walking. Also, the two guys standing by the gate disappear, while in the next shot one of them reappears.

      • Jamie's last name (White) is revealed here for the first time.

    • QUOTES (20)

      • Jane: Should we get our fortunes read?
        Daria: I'll pass, knowing the present is bad enough.

      • Mr. O'Neill: ...I'd like Kevin to stay on stage. Kevin, you're really doing something special with Palamon.
        Kevin: But, aren't I Palamon?

      • Jake: (holding up his turkey leg) What do you think happened to the rest of this turkey?

      • Ms. Li: Mr. White, if you'll just sign this wavier absolving Lawndale High of any responsibility for your accidental death, we can start the fun!

      • Quinn: For your information, Daria, [Brittany] volunteered to drive him so he could work on his lines.
        Daria: Did she volunteer to get him a dainty transplant for his head so he could remember them?

      • Helen: Daria, this fair is for a good cause. Everyone should go.
        Daria: Are you going?

      • Ms. Li: I have a very sad announcement. The library will be closed until further notice.
        Daria: Great, there goes the only place I can go to be alone.
        Jane: Oh, you know that's not true.

      • Quinn: Hi, Sandi, Tiffany. Guess what?
        Sandi: You're transferring to a new school?

      • (Ms. Barch is at the Fortune Telling Hut giving a girl her fortune)
        Ms. Barch: You will marry a man while still in your prime. Then, after putting him through school and spending 20 long-suffering years begging him to turn off those damn Broncos and get a real job, he'll walk out of your life, leaving a trail of muddy footprints behind on the freshly cleaned carpet. But you'll be better off without him. Much better off.
        (girl runs away, sobbing)
        Jane: Much, much better off.

        Jane: Must...stick...head...cold...water.

      • Daria: Look, don't flush your entire world down the drain just because some jerk didn't ask you out on a second date. It probably had nothing to do with you anyway.
        Jane: Unless you did something really stupid, like bore him with your petty problems and convoluted logic.
        Stacy: Why would I do that?

      • Jane: Should we get our fortunes read?
        Daria: I'll pass. Knowing the present is bad enough.
        Jane: Then how about a Ferris wheel ride?
        Daria: Do I look desperate to you?
        (Sam and Chris Griffin and Upchuck come running at them)
        Sam and Chris: Crusades! Crusades!
        Upchuck: Ladies...wait till you hear "The Ballad of the Misunderstood Minstrel."

        Daria: Let's go.

      • Upchuck: (sings) I am the brave Sir Chuck, Sir Chuck, manly and strong and quick...

      • Helen: Quinn, Daria's very happy to be seeing you in your play. Aren't you, Daria?

        Quinn: "I will make a dainty garland for my head and sing. I will make a dainty garland for my head and sing. I will make a dainty garland for my head and sing."
        Daria: With a hey-nonny-nonny, tra-la, tra-la. Would you give it a rest?

      • (after Ms. Li announces the medieval fair)
        Daria: That may be the stupidest thing I've ever heard of.
        Jane: I know. We gotta go!

      • Mr. O'Neill: Now, why do you think it is that Tolstoy felt he had to make War and Peace so darned... unpleasant? Daria?
        Daria: So no one would pester him to do a sequel?

      • Ms. Li: You will voluntarily volunteer at the carnival or voluntarity buy a ticket... or voluntarily face detention.

      • (A sobbing Stacy sits on Ferris wheel with Jane and Daria. The Ferris wheel begins to move.)
        Daria: Wait! You can't do this!
        Jane: We're human beings, damn it!!

      • Running Gag: Brittany "driving" Kevin to the school (actually getting him away from it) and Kevin says that it doesn't take this long to get to the school with Brittany replying "Are you sure?"

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Cadbury

        Brittany mistakenly refers to The Canterbury Tales as "The Cadbury Tales". Cadbury is a British chocolate company that is known for their smooth milk chocolates. American fans will know Cadbury for the Easter candy they distribute in the U.S., such as the Cadbury Egg, a creme-filled chocolate egg.

      • Guildenstern

        Jake claims he got the part of Guildenstern, which is a minor character from Shakespeare's Hamlet, or could possibly be the major character of the modern day play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

      • Daria: And a hey nonny nonny, tra la, tra la.

        Daria is quoting the Shakespearian character, Balthasar, from Much Ado About Nothing. The "nonny nonny" section is from a song in Act 2: Scene III.
