Episode Summary

Sandi breaks her leg, and during her recovery gains a considerable amount of weight. Having violated the Fashion Club's strict maximum weight requirement, she resigns her presidency, placing Quinn in charge. Out of respect for Sandi (though partly because Sandi guilt-trips her), Quinn resigns too, but Stacy and Tiffany find it impossible to run the club without them--and their incredibly steep entry requirements prevent them from recruiting any new members. Meanwhile, Daria and Jane--who have been making a series of friendly wagers--make a bet as to whether the Fashion Club will dissolve completely, and they each try to influence Quinn in order to win the bet. Jane--who predicts the club will fall apart--convinces Quinn not to take over as president, but Daria subtly convinces her to help Sandi lose weight. Once Sandi gets back to her original weight, the Fashion Club gets back together, though with a noticeable shift in power.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (12)

      • (Quinn has just been made the new president of the Fashion Club)
        Tiffany: Long live the Quinn. Hey...

      • Quinn: Stacy, I want to come back, but I just can't wear drawstring pants!
        Tiffany: Brrr.
        Stacy: What?

      • Tiffany: You surprise them by looking really hot.
        Joey: He's talking about war.
        Tiffany: So am I.

      • Quinn: Now that your cast is off, I'm here to help you lose weight.
        Sandi: Oh, Quinn, can't you see that it's too late? My life is over!
        Quinn: Sandi, you're not 30.

      • Jane: Did I hear right? The death of the Fashion Club? Then at last the people shall be free.
        Daria: Not likely. That club's like a hydra. You cut off one airhead, two more grow back.

      • Daria: You know, these little bets have cost you forty clams so far. If I had a self-image, I'd think you were bribing me to be your friend.
        Jane: Bet you the whole forty I'm not.

      • Tiffany: It's a shame we can't let boys in...
        Stacy: Tiffany, that's a great idea!
        Tiffany: What?
        Stacy: About the boys.
        Tiffany: Boys? Where?!

      • Quinn: Sandi resigned from the Fashion Club because she's fat, and then I had to resign to show Sandi my support, although I didn't really mean to resign, and now I don't know what's going to happen because there's no way there could even be a Fashion Club without me and Sandi!
        Daria: Um, Quinn. It's me. Daria.
        (Quinn realizes that it's not Daria she should be talking to)
        Quinn: Ugh!

      • (Tiffany is staring at Sandi because she's gained weight)
        Sandi: Gee, Tiffany, why don't you take a picture? It'll last longer.
        Tiffany: But I don't have a camera.

      • Mr. DeMartino: Brittany, explain something: Do you perhaps harbor a powerful phobia that it might actually hurt to think?

      • (Sandy's in the pool)
        Sandi: Can't...I...rest...now?
        Quinn: Did Cleopatra rest when she was inventing mascara? Did Neferiti rest when she was posing for statues? Did Helen of Troy rest when she was doing whatever it was she did? Beauty never rests! NOW, SWIM, YOU COW, SWIM!!!
        Sandi: What?!
        Quinn: Sorry, coach-talk.

      • Sandi: What is the next qualification to discuss under our agenda?
        Stacy: Weight guidelines...unless you want to talk about something else!
        Sandi: If it's all right with you, Stacy, I prefer to conduct this meeting in an orderly fashion. With that said, I'm moving to scale back the number of allowable of pounds back by three.
        Quinn: Um, Sandi, I think it's a really cute idea and all, but it might make it really hard to find new members.
        Sandi: Obviously I'm the only one in this room concerned with the burgeoning obesity problem tearing apart the very fabric of our land.
        Stacy: NOT THE FABRIC!
        Sandi: If I must stand alone in setting exemplary standards for others to follow, so be it. You're all overruled.

        -Zebrahead - "Playmate of the Year" (Morgendorffer kitchen)

      • Brooke from Episode #109 "Too Cute" shows up here when Sandi comes back to school (back to her normal thinness). Brooke, who supposedly suffered a nasal relapse and various other plastic surgery problems, looks perfectly fine in this brief, non speaking appearance.

      • Because the storyline about Sandi becoming fat and unpopular was too mean-spirited, Noggin has never aired this episode.
