Added DiffLines:

** Jodie doesn't like Daria and Jane very much because of their relentless cynicism and sarcasm, as well as their refusal to get involved in anything outside of their immediate interests. Unlike Daria and Jane, who see the world as shitty but just sit back and complain about it, Jodie sees the world as shitty but actively tries to improve it. She's friendly to them since they're not the same vapid idiots as the rest of the student body, but she's not going to hang out with people who just complain all the time when she could be trying to make a difference.

* From the finale: I know people change as they get older, but Daria and Jane hosting a morning talk show together, and one that seems sunny and cheerful at that? Because of the banter the two have I can almost buy it, but it seems a few steps removed both from their career goals (writer and artist) and general personalities (even with time to grow).

** The end "Where Are They Now?" sequence was definitely supposed to be ironic/satirical. Stacy as a race car driver...

* What were the Morgendorffers doing in Highland? It's canon they actually were there in Highland for BeavisAndButthead - it's mentioned in the first episode as they drive to Lawndale.

** Yes, I notice it too, I guess the only reason why Jodie wasnít a friend of Daria and Jane was because Jodie didnít want to. Daria and Jane probably would have accepted her as such, even when they both (but especially Daria) would loath her interest in extracurricular activities and need to fit in with the system (though for academic reasons and not to be popular, as Quinn).

** Daria prides herself on being honest (a little too much pride, as one episode established) and while she'll exploit a loophole if it serves her purpose (technical honesty) once she is paid for something specific, she stays bought. Plus she isn't quite as anti-social as she likes to appear, and likes the opportunity to snark at others as a form of social interaction. Staying with Jane doesn't fulfil that need.

** Given the general lack of intellect of the majority of the cast, it wouldn't be a stretch to assume some of them just weren't smart enough to realize they'd been insulted.


Added DiffLines:

*** And, as for Jane, she definitely could fit in well if she wanted to- various episodes have proven that. She's an outcast by choice, but she's still fairly well-adjusted.

** We see later that the car isn't exactly reliable; Trent might insist on driving because Jake wouldn't know how to handle the car so it doesn't explode. Although that doesn't explain why Daria and Jane had to go.

* In ''Antisocial Climbers,'' Daria is payed to go on a field trip to give her parents alone time at home. But why didn't she just stay at Jane's for the night instead? Everybody wins that way. She could have still pocketed the money, since Helen's goal was to get her out of the house.

*** And a later episode shows her driving with glasses.



** Liability waivers are likely involved; ever read a permission slip?
