** Helen gets another moment of awesome in that as Quinn's comments about her substitute acting out his novel about a romance with 'a slightly older man and a young woman-child blossoming' and that he was stroking Tiffany's hair sink in, she demands the phone ([[CrowningMomentOfFunny already helpfully being provided by Daria]]), and the very next shot is him walking out of the school with a box of his things.

-->Um, thank you. I'm not much for public speaking. Or much for speaking. Or, come to think of it, much for the public. And I'm not very good at lying. So let me just say that, in my experience, high school sucks. If I had to do it all over again, I'd have started advanced placement classes in preschool so I could go from eighth grade straight to college. However, given the unalterable fact that high school sucks, I'd like to add that if you're lucky enough to have a good friend and a family that cares it doesn't have to suck quite as much. Otherwise, my advice is: stand firm for what you believe in, until and unless logic and experience prove you wrong; remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor ''is'' naked; the truth and a lie are not "sort of the same thing"; and there's no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can't be improved with pizza. Thank you.
* Daria and Jane refuse to sell chocolate bars to a hypoglycemic woman who even fainted in front of them, and rather than being applauded for her good judgement by Principal Li, Daria is forced to do a reading at a local coffee shop that Lawndale High was raising funds for. To ensure that nobody ever made that mistake again, Daria [[DisproportionateRetribution read a violent right-wing spy story that whipped the kids into an anti-Communist mob and forced the coffee shop to shut down.]]
* [[TheDitz Brittany]] gets a quite surprising one in "The Daria Hunter," when she proves to be amazingly skilled at paintball, both outlining a perfect group strategy and doing several forward flips to knock away Mr. [=DiMartino=]'s gun.

* Quinn proudly stating that Daria is her sister, followed by Stacy and Tiffany taking Sandi down a few pegs by stating that they both already knew and were just being polite by not calling Quinn on her numerous "cousin" statements.
** What makes it even better is that, when they said they were "just being polite," it might not have been referring to Quinn...they may have gone along with it to avoid SANDY being embarrassed by being the last person to realize the truth.

* Stacy snapping on Tiffany and calling her out on being hopelessly self-absorbed in ''Fat Like Me''. Sure, it didn't have much of an effect on Tiffany (not much does), but it was still amazing to watch.

[[BigDamnHeroes Two members of the fandom]] got together - from different parts of the country, no less - and not only got him an Internet-capable laptop, a cell phone so he could keep in contact with his fellow fans, and took a cross-country trip to get it to him and visit.

* Stacy gets one in the ending of ''Is It College Yet?'' Sandi decides to guilt trip her into performing a number of chores to make up for "almost crippling her" with her birthday wish. Stacy points out that it's still not clear if her wish was the reason Sandi lost her voice, since she got better without the so-called "curse remover". Sandi passively threatens that this could jeopardize Stacy's standing in the Fashion Club. Stacy counters by deciding to take a sabbatical like Quinn did, because her standing just isn't worth her dignity.
* Ted Dewitt-Clinton gets one by calling off the Fashion Club, Kevin, and Brittany from protesting the change in the yearbook structure. He does so by mentioning a supposed sale at Cashman's to ward off the Fashion Club and settling matters with Kevin through a grip contest (where he almost breaks Kevin's hand without breaking a sweat because he practices isometrics with his dad).

* When Quinn aces a writing assignment at school (to the surprise of everyone ''and'' herself), the success goes to her head and she turns into a poser beatnik. When Quinn begins to horn in on Daria's territory, Daria gets her to back off by dressing up like Quinn and having her three male 'followers' show up at the house to ask her out on a date. The end result: Quinn freaks out, goes back to her old self, and says she stole the essay from somewhere.

--->Since I've been coming to camp I've been doing whatever Skip tells me to, even when I didn't want to or thought it was stupid. And I never challenged him or said anything because I didn't want to risk being alienated from the group. So I learned to keep quiet, just follow the herd, lead a life of quiet desperation. But I'm not gonna do that anymore. Because returning to Camp Grizzly meant renewing my acquaintance with someone special, a role model, an inspiration. Daria Morgendorffer. Sure, she's unpleasant. Sure, she's anti-social. Sure, she say's whatever's on her mind without any regard for others' feelings. But at least she thinks for herself and marches to her own drummer. So from now on I'm going start thinking for myself just like Daria, and I don't care if I end up like her with no friends. I never want to see this stupid campground again.

* In "The Misery Chick", Brittany slapped the "hero" quarterback. after he asked her to have sex. right after she said her boyfriend worships him. Although, what ''really'' provoked her was when, after Brittany repeated that Kevin is Tommy Sherman's biggest fan, Tommy completely missed her point and asked "What are you saying? He wants to watch? I don't know..." and ''then'' she slapped him.

* In "The Lost Girls" Daria spent most of the school day with Val, the shallow and deluded editor and owner of a so-called teen magazine called "Val." When Daria finally has enough of Val and how "jiggy" she is, she calls out Val's magazine for the exploitative and damaging drivel that it is and tells her instead of trying to act like a 30-something year old who still thinks she's a teenager she should try and offer something her readers could actually use since they won't be teenagers forever. Val's response is to write an article about how Daria, nicknamed "D," is "The Anti-Teen." Jodie points out everyone at Lawndale High will know it's her. Daria's response?

*** [[WildMassGuessing Could the whole episode,]] {{Aesop}} [[FridgeBrilliance and all, have been a]] ShoutOut to ''Literature/TheFountainhead''?
**** Maybe, but if so it's a bad choice for a homage. Something Rand didn't realize is that Howard Roarke, as an architect, was doing a work for hire and therefore had no legal ownership of the final product. Daria and Jane, on the other hand, were the owners of the project Li vandalized, so if the two are connected at all, the ''Daria'' episode is a FixFic.
