        Lerman: She's quite good.
        Bridesmaid: You've seen her!?

      • Lerman: (to Brian) I'm sorry. What did you say you do again? I thought I heard "intelligence", but that can't be right.

        Paul: Ick!
        Daria: And he was one of the lucky ones.

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Seal

      • Jane: Oh, Scarlett, you grow lovelier by the day!

        This is a line from the 1939 Academy Award-winning film Gone With the Wind (based on the Margaret Mitchell novel), which starred Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh as star-crossed lovers set against the backdrop of the American Civil War.

      • Daria: Redrum. Redrum.

        As the Morgendorfer's car approaches the lavish, mountain-top hotel where the wedding is to take place, the scene is almost exact to that in The Shining. Daria's joke of "Redrum, redrum" is taken from this movie, imitating Danny, the young boy in The Shining.
