http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/darias2e6.jpg
After a conversation with Daria and Jane during a rainy ride home from the movie theater, Mr. O'Neill assigns his class to make a movie, and Daria and Jane choose to make a documentary about Quinn and her shallowness. Meanwhile, Jake becomes obsessed with a childhood video that shows him falling off his bike with no one to help him up.


This episode provides examples of:

  • Attack Backfire: Daria and Jane's original intention was to humilliate Quinn with the documentary. Daria makes a last minute edit when she has a second thought on it, resulting in the video making Quinn even more popular.
  • Genre Savvy: Helen figures out that Daria is going to use the movie to humiliate Quinn pretty quickly.
  • Nightmare Sequence: Daria has a nightmare of she becoming Quinn, while the Fashion Club (all of them with Jane's face but with their original voices) are praising her.
