Daria helps Brittany in art class, and Brittany decides to repay
her by inviting Daria to her party. At first Daria doesn't want to
go, but then she finds out Quinn was invited, so she decides to go
to embarrass Quinn. Jane comes along to get some sketches (or so she
says), but has to persuade Daria to actually go through with it.
They get a ride from Trent, Jane's brother, and Daria acts a bit strange
during the trip. They distract the guard (Britanny lives in a gated
community) by giving him Jane's sketch book, so Jane can get in.
Daria and Jane get a tour of Brittany's house by Upchuck, who got
invited by dissecting Brittany's frog. Two guys try to pick up Daria
and Jane, and Jane goes with one to the "make out room".
Quinn insults Daria and the goes to hide in the bathroom, so Daria
goes and tells embarrassing stories to Joey, Jeffey, and Jamie. Jane
comes out of the make out room (somewhat embarrased and not pleased),
and she and Daria leave the party.
Quinn gets Joey, Jeffey and Jamie to fight over her.
The gate guard goes looking for Jane to get into the art class, and
Jane and Daria pretend to be security guards and harass the people
coming in. Brittany's party gets broken up by the cops, and Daria,
Jane and Quinn get a ride home with Upchuck.
Joey: Hey Quinn, can I carry your books?
Jeffey: Hey Quinn, can I carry your... pencil?
Jamie: Hey Quinn, can I carry your... uhhh... got anything
Quinn: A hair-scrunchy?
Daria: Careful! Don't hurt yourself with that scrunchy.
"You can't expect me to choose a boyfriend right away, that would
be like eating the first pancake off the stove. You have to feed one
to the dog." - Quinn ("The Invitation")
Daria: These are really good. I didn't know you
studied life drawing.
Jane: Yeah, last summer.
Daria: You're really bursting out of the picture plane here.
Jane: Oh, yeah. That particular model was quite bursty. I think
she had her bursts done.
Daria: Brittany invited me to her party.
Jane: No kidding! Are you going?
Daria: Sure, and after that I think I'll swallow glass.
"Hi. I'm Daria. Go to hell. No, it won't work. My face
is too expressive." - Jane ("The Invitation")
"Mom! Dad! Daria is ruining my life, again!" - Quinn ("The Invitation")
"Did I tell you that I did this really nice thing and invited Daria
Morgendorffer? Even though she never, ever, wears nailpolish." - Brittany
"I love being the hostess. It's so easy to get home at the end of
the night." - Brittany ("The Invitation")
Dumb guy: So, where you girls been all our lives?
Daria: Waiting here for you. We were born in this room, we
grew up in this room, and we thought we would die here, alone. But
now you've arrived, and our lives can truly begin.
Daria: So, what happened to Bobby Big-head?
Jane: I wasn't really interested.
Daria: Too bad. Is this yours?
Jane: Okay, fine. He thought my head was a lollipop. Ready
"It's the soul train. Beep, beep. Get on board." - Daria ("The Invitation")
Jane: So... have fun?
Daria: Well, I didn't talk to a whole bunch of new people.
I made Quinn want to throw herself down a well. And I'm going home
with a bonus sock. All in all, a great night.
A good followup to the first episode, this one gives us a bit more
information on Daria's friend and family (well, on Quinn anyway).
It sets the course for Daria and Jane's relationship for some time
to come, with Jane pushing Daria into something new. A few new characters
were introduced, and the series starts to pick up momentum.
