The Daria Episode
The Misery Chick
Monaco's Mopiest Millionaires, today on Sick, Sad World
Right after class picture day, the school buys a new goalpost, and
the QB who had lead the team to a State Final victory comes back to
memorialize it. Jodie has to write a speech about it since she's on
Student Council, and gets really pissed about the whole thing. She
gets stuck and goes to Daria for help.
Quinn: Do you think Nature's Precious Wonders was a good choice,
because I almost went with Starlight over Yosemite.
"I don't like to smile unless I have a reason." -- Daria ("The Misery Chick")
Helen: Daria, people judge you by your expression.
Daria: If you don't believe any of it, why
give the speech?
"I know the whole school is turning itself inside out for some egotistical football player. And I've seen you insult or proposition just about everyone you've come across. So, my guess is, you're the football player guy. Congratulations. You must've worked very hard to become such a colossal jerk so quickly." -- Daria ("The Misery Chick")
Mr. O'Neill: You probably think about the
dark side all the time.
Quinn: Wow, your room still looks like this?
Daria: Are you avoiding me?
"Yeah, well, I don't like it when I say people should die and then they do. I don't want that kind of responsibility. At least, not until I have a job in middle management." -- Jane ("The Misery Chick")
"When they say 'You're always unhappy,' what they mean is 'You think, Daria, I can tell because you don't smile. Now this guy died, and it's making me think, and that hurts my little head and makes me stop smiling. So, tell me how you cope with thinking all the time, Daria, until I can get back to my normal vegetative state'." -- Jane ("The Misery Chick")
Daria: Did Trent know you were up here?
Daria: Find some other way to feel, then
you won't feel sad. Good luck.
