Episode Quotes
Jane: So, basically, you've convinced them that you were too dull to be worth grounding.
Daria: Exactly, and the sad thing is, it's kinda true.

Daria: There's no sadder sight on this Earth than a football player trying to think.

Daria: So instead of saying, "Don't come home so late," now they've created some elaborate punishment system.
Jane: You mean like a spanking machine?

Daria: The confinement has made me desperate. If I don't get out, I'm afraid I might do something crazy.
Quinn: Really?
Daria: No.

Jake: Oh, my God, I almost forgot! (gets the coffee table) Sorry, counselor, the court requires this accoutrement.
(Jake drags the coffee table over, puts the chair on it, then climbs up and sits in the chair)
Helen: Oh, for heaven's sake.
Jake: There. Family court is now in session.
Daria: Careful. Don't fall off the accoutrement.

Episode Goofs
