Recap: Daria S 1 E 09

A girl in Quinn's grade named Brooke gets a new nose job, and Quinn is treated as a pariah for not praising it as obsessively as the other popular girls. With her station threatened, Quinn believes that she needs to get plastic surgery herself in order to keep up, and drags Daria will her to consult Dr. Shar. The amoral surgeon tries to convince both girls to try her wares, while Daria tries to convince Quinn that she doesn't need them.

Tropes present in this episode:

  • Damned by Faint Praise: In-Universe; while the other girls are gushing about Brooke's new nose, Quinn politely says that it's "cute." This is treated as if it were a terrible insult.
  • Mad Doctor: Dr. Shar is more amoral and corrupt than anything.
  • With Friends Like These...: This episode begins to make clear just how Sandi treats the rest of the Fashion Club.
