    Everyone loves this show because of its great writing, so I was wondering what are everyone's favorite quotes from the show? (It's so hard to pick just one!)

    Some of mine are:

    Daria: I always dreamed of the day my picture would hang in a nut house.

    Quinn: Muh-om!! I'm not my sister's beeper!

    Trent: Whoa...no more cocoa for you, man.

    Jane: I quit. I'm afraid I might come out of high school knowing as much as Kevin.
    Daria: You came out of kindergarten knowing more than Kevin.
    Jane: Remind me of that when he gets his football scholarship.

    The following come from Arts 'n Crass of Season 2, for those interested.


    Mr. O'Neill: So you see, girls, I don't want to change the intent of the poster, I just want to make it more palatable. You know what they say: "A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down."
    Jane: Not if you're diabetic.


    Ms. Li: Did you really think you would get away with this?
    Jane: Well, it would be stupid to say yes now.


    Trent: All right, here's the plan. I'll sit right here with my foot on the accelerator, ready to burn rubber.
    Jane: Trent, pull over there and make sure to turn off the car in case you fall asleep.
    Trent: Alternate plan. Cool.


    And of course, my favorite quote from the episode:
    Ms. Li: (over the telephone) Mrs. Morgendorfer, I'm afraid I have some rather bad news. Your daughter Daria appears to have been involved in an act of vandalism.
    Helen: What?
    Ms. Li: Mrs. Morgendoffer, your daughter collaborated with Jane Lane in the creation of a poster for our art contest.
    Helen: Yes, I'm aware of that.
    Ms. Li: We found part of the poster unacceptable. So it was altered prior to it's entry. Unfortunatley, someone defaced the poster while it was on display and since your daughter and Miss Lane were objecting to changing it, I must assume that they were the vandals. I'm going to have to take drastic action.
    Helen: Wait a moment. You're saying the girls were against changing the poster but entered it into the contest anyway?
    Ms. Li: It was entered for them.
    Helen: I was under the impression that participation in this contest was voluntary.
    Ms. Li: Yes, but your daughter refused to volunteer, so in her case I made it mandatory.
    Helen: All right, Ms. Li, let me make sure I have this straight. You took my daughter's poster from her, altered its content, exhibited it against her will and are now threatening discipline because you claim she defaced her own property which you admit to stealing?
    Ms. Li: That's not what I said at all!
    Helen: Ms. Li, are you familiar with the phrase "violation of civil liberties"?
    (Ms. Li stammers in terror)
    Helen: And the phrase "big, fat lawsuit"?
    (Daria smirks in triumph)

    that's MY favorite quote

    sandy: yeah, we can go. if stacy's got enough cotton balls.
    stacy: i'm all out and this is the smallest bag they had.
    sandy: okay, i just sure hope nobody sees you because they'll probably think you have a massive skin oil problem.
    stacey: OH NO!!!

    Jane- Do you ever think I might be able to read your story.
    Daria- No but I will let you read the run where you run off with Kevin.
    Jane- WHAT!

    Daria: I don't have low self-esteem. That's a mistake... I have low esteem for everyone else.
