Recap / Daria S 2 E 04

The Morgendorffers are invited to a wedding, where Daria meets her like-minded (and similar-looking) aunt named Rita, Helen gets drunk, Quinn gets hit on by a priest, and Jake tries to play golf without his wife knowing.


This episode provides examples of:

  • Generation Xerox: Helen's sisters to her daughters: Amy and Daria, Rita and Quinn.
  • The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Helen and Rita slowly boil over throughout the wedding until the whole thing ends up in a screaming match between the whole family in the middle of the reception.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Aunt Rita's list of recent significant others: the sculptor was dumped, the skydiving instructor had a horrible accident, and "Bruno" is in a federal prison somewhere.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Helen spends the reception drinking.
  • Mistaken for Gay: When Mack and Kevin hang out at the bridal expo, a wedding ring salesman mistakes them for a gay couple by saying that he sells rings for same-sex couples and "what [they] do with them is [their] business".
  • Pedophile Priest: The minister's disturbing advances toward the fourteen year old Quinn.
  • Running Gag: Daria's ill-fitted bridesmaid dress doesn't look of the same design as the other bridesmaids.
  • Screw Politeness, I'm a Senior!: The tailor at the bridal shop insults Daria's body to her face.
  • Spear Counterpart: Lerman to Daria.
