    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The "Mile High Club" refers to having sex in an airplane, since the cruising altitude is over a mile high into the atmosphere. That being said, there's no way to join it while being on a boat.

      • Mrs. Manson, from "The Esteemsters" (#101), can be seen at the poker table when Daria and Jane first walk into the casino.

    • QUOTES (18)

      • Ms. Li: (speaking on P.A. system) Attention Students!
        Jane: Uh oh, it's those voices again.
        Ms. Li: (continues speaking on P.A. system) Due to cash flow problems, Casino Night attendance is now mandatory. Show your school spirit and dip into your college fund! Thank you!
        Daria: Now I'll never be able to buy that college.

      • Jodie: I realize I'm probably wasting my time, but do you guys want to buy tickets to Casino Night? It's going to be on the Princess Fairy Luxury liner.
        Daria: So the only means of escape is drowning.

      • Ms. Li: Please, Mr. DeMartino! I haven't heard anyone try so hard to squirm out of a school event since Helen Morgendorffer made up that ridiculous excuse about being allergic to crepe paper.

      • Sandi: Gee, Quinn, I hope this inability of yours to retain simple information is just temporary and not symptomatic of a more serious, underlying problem.

      • Jane: We're never going to get any sleep, are we?
        Daria: Not unless we kill every living thing on board.
        Jane: I'm okay with that.

      • Jane: But first, let's gamble all our chips away in one grand, magnificently pointless gesture.
        Daria: That's the only kind of gesture I make.

      • Jane: Back to the serenity of dreamland...
        Daria: Yeah. I hope the fire-breathing cyclops hasn't caught me yet.

      • Jane: If you act sad, they will know you were stood up.
        Daria: Yeah. So stop engaging into suspicious behavior.
        Quinn: What suspicious behavior?
        Daria: Hanging with us.
        Quinn: Oh my god. You're right
        (Quinn finally leaves)
        Jane: That was easy.
        Daria: I can do it in my sleep.

      • (Brittany and Kevin are screaming in the background while Daria and Jane are sleeping)
        Jane: Do you hear Brittany and Kevin screaming?
        Daria: (Takes a second. They are still screaming) No.
        Jane: Me neither. Nighty-night.

      • Kevin: Babe, wanna join the Mile High club?
        Daria: I know, why don't you join the Bottom of the Ocean Club?

      • Marco: By looking good I'm bringing a little beauty into the lives of people surrounded by their own uglyness.

      • Quinn: Even in this country people can't afford nice haircuts, so it must be awful for them, I mean...how can they go outside?

      • Mr. DeMartino: Daria, take my chips.
        Daria: Excuse me?
        Mr. DeMartino: You know, as a thank you for making me want to kill myself a little less than the processed sausages who call themselves your classmates.
        Jane: You're not one of those "young people are our greatest hope" guys, are you?

      • Jodie: You guys are hopeless.
        Daria: Damn it, she saw right through our facade of hopefulness.
        Jane: She's the 12th person today.

      • Jane: How can you eat that meat loaf? Don't those little colored pieces scare you?
        Daria: We only go around once...I hope.

      • Woman on TV: I didn't mean to hurt him.
        Daria: The knife just slipped... 67 times.
        Jane: What can you say? Some people are just klutzy.

      • Helen: Daria, wake up!! Have you seen your father?
        Daria: (groggy) Mom? Dr. Moreau invited you to the island, too?

      • Jake: Jake Morgendorffer doesn't repeat himself! DOESN'T REPEAT HIMSELF!
