** Can you imagine having to not only tutor someone, but also have to deal with their emotional baggage every time they break down? He probably isn't getting paid enough to deal with all that.

** Quinn is more willing to walk away from the Fashion Club and do things independently, Stacy is part of the group. He isn't prepared to deal with them and they all seem to come as part of a package deal.

*** Same with ''AsToldByGinger''. Yeah, it was quoted as a feature because the animators weren't cutting corners - they do this specifically because they don't always animate the season at once and anything that can save time you ''take''. Shame that they don't have the advantage of Asian-based shows where school uniforms are the norm.

* "Cafe Disaffecto" starts with some unknown thieves stealing at the cyber-cafe. When Mr. O'Neill wants to discuss about it, Kevin points that he has a computer now. Are his parents the thieves, or did they buy stolen things?

** Kevin was probably just attempting to get across that he already had computer, so he's not interested in the equipment stolen the previous night.

* How did all those incompetent / abusive / exploitative teachers retain their jobs? Some of the outright abuse several students suffer from the likes of Ms. Li and Ms. Barch would not only have gotten them fired, but arrested as well. Helen was able to send one of them packing after witnessing some blatant sexual harassment, so why couldn't she just follow suit with the other crappy behavior on display?

Added DiffLines:

** It's entirely possible they ''are'' bothered by what she says but simply don't know what to say in response. Given how a lot of her verbal jabs are passive aggressive, it's much more difficult for people to respond well to passive aggressive barbs than to outright insults. When somebody comes up to you and insults you directly, you're much more likely to get mad and respond back in kind. But when someone insults you in a much more subtle and passive aggressive manner, you're less likely to respond decisively and more likely to pause and think, "Wait a second. Did this person just insult me?" while being thunderstruck with no comeback. This was most likely the situation most of the victims of Daria's barbs found themselves in.

*** ''FreaksAndGeeks''
*** ''FreaksAndGeeks'' was ''nothing'' like the high school ''I'' went to. Try again - It's always based off of what the ''writers'' went to high school and heavily exaggerated and possibly flanderized; because it's quite literally ''impossible'' to ''accurately'' portray high school - you always got ''one'' person in the audience who says, "Wait, have these guys ''been'' to high school? It's nothing like the one I went to!"

* Why did David drop Stacy from his tutoring? Sandi was a bitch to him, and Tiffany was doing her makeup more than paying attention, but all Stacy did was have a panic attack and start crying. From what we see, she was trying to follow along and was making progress up until that point. He gives Quinn a second chance based on her putting her phone down, but just walks away from Stacy for no explained reason.
