Daria: It's Daria.
P: I'm sorry Daria. What do you see in the picture Dara.
D: A heard of beautiful wild ponies running free across the planes.
P: Uh- there aren't any ponies. It's two people.
D: Last time I took this test they said they were clouds. They said they could be anything I wanted.
P: That's a different test. In this test they're people and you tell me what they're discussing.
D: It's a guy and girl and they're discussing a heard of beautiful wild ponies running free across the plains.
Mr DeMartino: Okay class. Who can tell me which war manifest destiny was used to justify? Kevin?
Kevin: Vietnam War?
Mr DM: That came a little later Kevin. 100 years later. A lot of good men died in that war. I believe we owe it to them to at least get the century right!
K: Uh... Operation Watergate?
Mr DM: Son, promise me you'll come back and visit me someday when you've got the Heisman Trophy and a chain of auto dealerships and I'm saving up for a second pair of pants!
Jake: What about you Daria? How was your first day?
Daria: Well, my History teacher hates me cause I know all the answers but there are some interesting idiots in my class.
Mr. O'Neill: Uh... you. What's a daydream you'd like to see come true?
Daria: Uh well, I guess I'd like to do something together.
Mr. O: Excellent!
Daria: Something that will really make them suffer.
Helen: It seems she has low self-esteem.
Jake: What?! That really stinks Daria!
Helen: Easy Jake. Focus. We tell you over and over again that you're wonderful and you just don't get it! What's wrong with you?!
Mr. O'Niell: Esteem? A-teen? They don't really rhyme do they? The sounds don't quite mesh. And that in fact is often the case when it comes to a teen and esteem. The 2 just don't seem to go together. But we're here to begin realizing your actuality. Each and everyone one of you will be able to stand proudly and proclaim I AM!
Guy: So, like what do you like to do after school?
Quinn: Oh, nothing special. Go to the movies or like a theme park or out for a really fancy meal now and then. And maybe go to a concert if I know somebody who's got good seats and is renting a limo.
My favourite Daria quote is probably:
Mr. DeMartino: Why couldn't I have been born during an influenza epidemic? Why did I survive, grow tall and strong, only to squander all my potential by becoming a TEACHER!
