** 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.

** Maybe she's just pessimistic?

*** ''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.

* 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?

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

** 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).

* 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.
