Daria and Jodie are invited to an open house at Grove Hills, a private school for exemplary students. Meanwhile, Quinn stays with her Fashion Club friends — but ends up getting thrown out of all three houses and stays with Jane.
This episode provides examples of:
- Education Mama: All of the parents at Grove Hills.
- I Just Want to Be You: Quinn gets kicked out of all her friends' houses, except for Stacy. Quinn flees when Stacy dresses exactly like her and suggests they dye their hair the same color.
- Not So Different: At first, Daria and Jodie find the Grove Hills kids refreshing in their intellectualism. Then they find out that they're still mean-spirited teenagers. They both decide to stay at Lawndale High because they don't need the same environment plus the added pressure to succeed.
