Ms. Li: I don't see how any of you could think of passing up the chance to bring honor unto yourself and Lawndale High.
Daria: Buckle my shoe.
Ms. Li: Did you really think you were going to get away with it?
Jane: Well, it would be stupid to say "yes" now.
Daria: Sorry we woke you up.
Trent: Don't worry about it. It was bound to happen sooner or later.
Jane: You know, nobody said the message had to be positive. I'm going to do something that really represents student life.
Jane: And tell the truth about how much it can suck.
Jane: To blow away the story-book fantasy about how great it is to be young.
Jane: And you're going to help.
Ms. Li: (over the telephone) Mrs. Morgendorfer, I'm afraid I have some rather bad news. Your daughter Daria appears to have been involved in an act of vandalism.
Ms. Li: Mrs. Morgendoffer, your daughter collaborated with Jane Lane in the creation of a poster for our art contest.
Helen: Yes, I'm aware of that.
Ms. Li: We found part of the poster unacceptable. So it was altered prior to it's entry. Unfortunatley someone defaced the poster while it was on display and since your daughter and Miss Lane were objecting to changing it, I must assume that they were the vandals. I'm going to have to take drastic action.
Helen: Wait a moment. You're saying the girls were against changing the poster but entered it into the contest anyway?
Ms. Li: It was entered for them.
Helen: I was under the impression that participation in this contest was voluntary.
Ms. Li: Yes, but your daughter refused to volunteer, so in her case I made it mandatory.
Helen: All right Ms. Li, let me make sure I have this straight. You took my daughter's poster from her, altered its content, exhibited it against her will and are now threatening discipline because you claim she defaced her own property which you admit to stealing?
Ms. Li: That's not what I said at all!
Helen: Ms. Li, are you familiar with the phrase, violation of civil liberties?
(Ms. Li stammers in terror)
Helen: And the phrase - Big, fat lawsuit?
In Ms. Li's office, the books behind her desk constantly change colors between frames.
While walking home, Daria and Jane pass by the same house and mailbox twice.
At Pizza King, Daria and Jane's cups change from blue with a yellow stripe to red with a yellow stripe between frames.
Mr. O'Neill's phone only has 9 numbers. In order to be able to dial every possible number combination, there should be 12 buttons.
Jane: The only way for us to save our work was to destroy it.
Jane's line is a take on a well-known quote by a Vietnam soldier, "we had to burn the village in order to save it."
Daria: It's off to the sneaker sweatshop for me and Quinn.
