5 Hours Left to Support a Troper-Created Project : Personal Space (discuss)

Recap / Daria S 2 E 03

When Quinn gets a good grade on an English assignment, she embraces her (pseudo-) intellectual side while Daria worries that her airheaded sister may be smarter than her.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Broken Aesop:
    Jane: Well, I guess things are back to normal.
    Daria: Yup. Fashion: good. Thinking: bad.
    Jane: ...yeah.
  • Double Standard: Daria and Helen call Jake out on monetarily rewarding Quinn for a single good grade, while Daria gets consistent good grades and has never received a reward.
  • Hidden Buxom: While appearing flat and curveless most of the time, when she dresses in the form-fitting baby tee and jeans, Daria looks like a slightly shapelier version of Quinn.
  • Malaproper: Brittney calls Kevin a "Highschool Casa-blank-a" when she thinks he's womanizing with Quinn.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: When Daria dresses up in Quinn's style to get to her.
