  • great episode that definately keeps daria in character while at the same time lets the audience know that she's still human

    this is probably one of the best episodes of daria, but then again every episode of daria is great.

    this episode has kept a message that can still be applied years from it's original air date.

    it's only sad that it's not aired on noggin in addition to several other episodes because it's not appropriate for all ages because it deals about the big "s" word and for that matter, with teenagers involved.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The title of the book Tom was reading is incorrect. It's supposed to be Critique of Pure Reason (not "Reasoning") by Immanuel Kant.

  • QUOTES (19)

    • Upchuck: You've passed your admission test to Club de Amore, please check your inhibitions at the door. Rrrrr...

    • Daria: Quinn, can I...
      Quinn: Stop! I don't want to hear any of the sordid details; I don't care what coupled people do!

    • Jane: And Daria...since when do you own a pair of black high-heels?

    • Tom: What's that noise?
      Daria: Either a band of eunuchs or Quinn's figured out how to turn on the radio.

    • Daria: So, um...should we pick a date?
      Tom: Well...my parents are going out of town next weekend. How about then?
      Daria: No fair. Home court advantage.
      Tom: Fine. Your place.
      Daria: Like I'd ever find all the microphones Mom's hidden around my room.
      Tom: The Rendezvous Motel? You know, on Route 6.
      Daria: Gee, don't make me feel too special.
      Tom: All right, the boathouse at the lake, with the stars, the moon, the water?
      Daria: And the mosquitoes, the splinters, the security patrol?
      Tom: (frowning slightly) Okay, how about Mars, then? Soon as that whole colonization thing gets going?

    • Jane: I knew I should have jumped Tom when I had the chance.
      (Daria gives her a cross look)
      Jane: Kidding! I told you, I'm waiting till college. 11:00 A.M. on move-in day.

    • Jane: Ah. I've been expecting your call
      Daria: Huh?
      Jane: All right, I'm listening. But for God's sake, at least spare me the squishier details and the rapturous declarations of undying love.

    • Daria: Easy for you to say. You never had a rumor circulating around school that you slept with someone.
      Jane: Well, if that ever does happen I hope the guy's a professional wrestler.

    • Tom: I backed off because I thought that's what you wanted, but I can be persuaded otherwise.

    • Tom: (to Daria) You don't want to have sex because you're afraid it'll hurt our relationship and then you break up with me?? Doctor, my head.

    • Jake: Hey, you ever try any of that sake? It sucks! I mean, rocks!
      Tom: Um, no. You know: the age thing...

    • Helen: (After learning Daria and Tom did not have sex) Well, I can't say I'm not somewhat relieved. I just want you to know that whatever decisions you make in life I'm on your side, and...
      Daria: So, instead we decided to sublimate our urges by travelling cross -country with a motorcycle gang.
      Helen: All right. You just remember to call home on Sunday nights.
      Daria: Hey!
      Helen: (Triumphantly) HA!

    • Jane: Anyway, being in a relationship can't possibly hinge on physical intimacy, 'cause that would mean our parents are still doing it.
      Daria: Which is absurd.
      Jane: No chance.
      Daria: I'd join the circus.
      Jane: Right behind you.
      Daria: Thanks for your insight.
      Jane: What I'm here for.

    • Helen: Your father thinks he picked up a parasite eating sushi.
      Daria: You mean the kind that drill through your intestines, twisting and turning and driving you slowly insane until they grow eight feet long and corkscrew out through your vital organs?
      (Jake starts freaking out, little by little, then collapses on the couch)
      Helen: Daria...
      Jake: Help me, Helen... before the madness sets in.
      Daria: Any further.

    • Daria: The problem with going to restaurants is that they're not in my room.
      Tom: I know what you mean. I have the same issue with hiking trails.

    • Helen: All right, Daria. I guess I can believe your story, though it seems pretty farfetched to me that two teenagers with raging hormones...
      Daria: My hormones don't rage. Oh, sure, they get mad sometimes, but then they just stop speaking to each other.

    • Daria: (sighs) I know I shouldn't let it bother me, but there's this rumor going around school that you and I slept together.
      Tom: Really? Can we get that rumor started at my school?

    • Jodie: Hey, sex is nothing to be ashamed of, as long as you're responsible.
      Daria: So, then, you and Mack have... been responsible?
      Jodie: Um... I really don't want to discuss that right now.
      Daria: I understand.
      Jodie: I promise: soon as my parents are dead, I'll tell you all about it. (walks away)
      Daria: Okay. Just so long as there's nothing to be ashamed of.

    • Helen: Not that I would ever try to talk you out of it--which is not to say I'm trying to talk you into it--it's just that I'd like to have the chance to discuss things with you first. I only wish I could have gone to my mother before I made such an awful mistake. What is it about stunt drivers that makes otherwise level-headed teenage girls just whip off their...
      Daria: (quickly interrupts) Okay, okay. Um, I've got to study. Big test. Biiig test...
