Episode Quotes
Jake: Is anybody out there? I am the only on left in the house?
Daria: If I help you with the 1st question, would you try to do the 2nd one on your own?
Jake: Daria! Thank God! Your mother is at a work thing, your sister is at a school thing, I thought I'd be stuck in here forever!
Daria: Ok, listen closely: There's a knob on the door. Turn it counterclockwise.

Daria: Call them off ... or I start hugging you.
Quinn: You wouldn't dare!
Daria: Try me.

Lion: Roar, roar, roar. We're number one.
Daria: Um, I think the roaring twenties are back that way.
Lion: Let's do the Lawndale schuffle.
Daria: How about the get-the-hell-away-from-me slide?

Quinn: Daria, have you seen my new "Teenage Superstars" magazine?
Daria: I couldn't help myself. I've plastered my walls with its hot, sexy pinups.

Episode Goofs

Cultural References
Jane: Godspeed, Indiana Morgendorffer.

This is a reference to Indiana Jones, a character played by Harrison Ford from the Raiders of the Lost Ark series of movies.

Daria: Oh, the lack of humanity.

Daria is referring to a line in the radio address given by Herb Morrison after the explosion of the Hindenburg: "Oh, the humanity". In "Pierce Me", Quinn makes this same reference.

Tom: He would've gotten away with it if it weren't for us meddling kids.

This is a play on the last line of every Scooby-Doo episode.
