Daria: You're really getting into this, aren't you?
Jane: Yeah. The kids and I are redoing all the wall murals. The happy clowns holding balloons - we turned them into Mongol invaders wielding maces.

Woman #1: What a pretty voice she has. Do you think?
Woman #2: Oh, yes. She sounds just like Frances did when she was younger.
Woman #3: I always did have a lovely voice.
Brittany: Thanks!
Woman #2: And I looked just like you, dear.
