Recap: Daria S 3 E 03

For Awareness of Others Week, everyone at Lawndale High is required to sign up for a volunteer activity. While Quinn and the Fashion Club try to collect clothes for the homeless (while being far too selective), Daria joins Kevin and Brittany in reading to senior citizens. It turns out nobody at the nursing home likes Daria, however, due to her flat voice. Eventually she does manage to find one old woman who appreciates her (who is either senile or deaf), and continues to volunteer even after the week is over.

Tropes present in this episode:

  • Genius Book Club: Daria brings Howl to read to the seniors; unfortunately, they prefer Brittany's romance novels and Kevin's comic books. She can also be seen reading Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's The Leopard during dinner.
  • It's All About Me: Ms. Li, as always. She clearly is just pushing the students into volunteering so that she can be praised by her bosses for the school's 100% participation.
  • Noodle Incident / Out of Focus: We hear about Jane's volunteer work with children at the hospital, but she doesn't get her own subplot about it.
