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.
