Episode Quotes
Daria: Have I mentioned that I hate pain?
Axl: Now, this won't hurt. It's no worse than popping a pimple.
Daria: Ahh!
Axl: I haven't done anything yet.
Daria: I was thinking about how much it hurts to pop a pimple.

Axl: Hey, you are 18, aren't you? I should've asked.
Daria: Is it a problem if I'm not?
Axl: Yeah. You'll need parental permission. This establishment is licensed to serve adults only and operates strictly according to the letter of the law.
Trent: She is.
Axl: Right.

Daria: I wasn't expecting you for a couple of hours.
Trent: I came straight from rehearsal. We ran late, or early ... whatever.

Helen: A mother-daughter fashion show at school? To raise money?
Daria: And consciousness.

Daria: We can bake cupcakes for the whole class and pretend you're really popular for the day.
Jane: Will there be pony rides?

Daria: I don't want to pierce my belly button. It never did anything to me.

Episode Goofs
When Daria walks upstairs to see Trent, she isn't carrying a cordless phone. However, when she arrives at his room, she has a phone in her hand.

Before getting pierced, the antiseptic bottle appears then disappears during the scene.

Cultural References
Quinn: Oh, the humanity.

Quinn is quoting a line from the radio address given by Herb Morrison after the explosion of the Hindenburg. Daria will later make this same reference in "I Loathe a Parade".
