    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • After Daria and Jane burst into Quinn's room with the camera, the door behind them is suddenly closed again.

      • When Daria and Jane are walking upstairs to Quinn's room, Daria's bangs keep switching sides.

      • After Daria wakes up from "her worst nightmare, resembling her sister," she comes into the living room with a mug in her hand, but it turns into a glass right before the end of the scene.

      • Daria cuts out the part of the movie when Quinn freaks out about her pores. Yet after Daria shows the tape in class, a girl comes up to Quinn and says:"I thought I was the only one ashamed of my pores!" How would she know about the whole pores fiasco if Daria cut it out of the tape?

    • QUOTES (17)

      • Daria: Let's face it. Most people would rather watch a movie than read a book. It's fast, it's easy, and you don't have to worry about your lips moving.

      • Kevin: I was trying to do it in slow-motion, like Jodie said.
        Brittany: You add the slow-motion part after, you idiot! (to Jodie) Don't you?

      • Kevin: I don't see any vegetables!
        Daria: You should have my view.

      • Jane: He wanted you to watch your birth? That could scar you for life.
        Daria: The birth itself did that.

      • Mr. O'Neill: Don't you want to sit in front, Daria?
        Daria: I'd love to, but, uh...you know, I'm afraid of an airbag injury.
        Mr. O'Neill: Oh my gosh, I'm sorry, what was I thinking? Of course you must sit in the back.

      • Sandi: Are your cousin and her friend going to follow us everywhere we go?
        Quinn: I told you, just ignore them.
        Tiffany: You always say that about them, but they don't usually have a camera.

      • SSW Announcer: When these ballerinas work out at the bar, they work out at the bar. "Tanked in a Tutu", when Sick, Sad World returns.

      • Daria: I guess I could go easy on [Quinn].
        Helen: Thanks, sweetie.
        (Helen leaves)
        Daria: But don't hold your breath.

      • Brittany: I'm getting a craving, babe.
        Kevin: Ho-hos?
        Brittany: Yeah!

      • Jane: So you did the compassionate thing and look where it got you.
        Daria: She's more popular than ever. We set out to make an expose, it ends up a love letter.
        Jane: See, we're like artists. And this is how we screw ourselves.

      • Daria: (After filming Quinn's rant) Anything you say can and will be used against you. (to Jane) We've got our Quinn.
        Jane: That's a wrap.
        Daria: But a wrap skirt is a definite don't. (Scared by her own words) Oh my God, did I really just say that?

      • Helen: I tell you what, Daria, you do what you think is right.
        Jane: I don't like the sound of that!
        Daria: Don't worry, she's clearly overestimating my conscience...by assuming I have one at all.

      • Quinn: By the way, which is my best side? I know they're both good!

      • (Daria turns the camera off)
        Quinn: Don't you want to shoot me?
        Daria: Yes. I want to shoot you.

      • (Quinn's exposing how shallow she is, but Jane's head is elsewhere)
        Daria: Are you getting this? I hope you're getting this...
        Jane: (camera pointed down) Did you know that Pore Refiner spelt backwords is "Renifer Erop"?

      • Quinn: All right, everyone, bounce with me!!

      • Quinn: Oh my God, they've been... they've been zooming! You better not zoom that thing. Stop zooming, I mean it! If you can see any of my pores on camera, I swear I'll kill you. Stop the tape! I do not have pores! My pores are cute. My pores are tiny! You're fired!

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Daria: Hell is other people.

        The puppet play that Daria and Jane attempt to create and film is based on the play No Exit by French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980), in which a bourgeois lech, a "good woman" and a lesbian are damned to spend all eternity in the same room. This play is also the source of the quote, "Hell is other people."
