Daria - Season 2 - Episode 4




(Jane’s poster depicts a beautiful young girl gazing happily into a mirror)
Ms. Defoe - Oh, she’s beautiful! (reads the card attached to the bottom) "She knows she’s a winner, she couldn’t be thinner, now she goes in the bathroom and vomits up dinner?" Oh, Jane, I don’t think that’s funny.
Jane - Um, you don’t?
Ms. Defoe - Do you think it’s funny to make fun of someone with an eating disorder?
Jane - No! But…
Daria - (whispers) It’s not meant to be funny.
Jane - It’s not meant to be funny.
Ms. Defoe - Well, then, do you think it’s your place to pass judgement on someone with a low self-image just because you don’t have that problem yourself?
Jane - But that’s not what I’m saying at all.
Ms. Defoe - Then what are you saying?
Jane - I’m saying that people shouldn’t… uh…
Daria - (rolls eyes) She’s saying that all the emphasis on appearance today can be dangerous. The girl is very pretty, and your first reaction is, “Oh, what a happy teenager!” But maybe that’s not the whole story. Maybe that prettiness comes at a price.
Ms. Defoe - Oh, is that what you’re saying, Jane?
Jane - Pretty much.
Ms. Defoe - And you felt you had to say it in such graphic, unappealing language.
(Ms. Defoe and Jane both look at Daria)
Daria - The choice of words was deliberate, to contrast with the beauty of the image and shock the viewer into paying attention.
Ms. Defoe - You know what, Jane? This really is a work of art, and it really does make a statement, in an original way. I’d like you to let me enter it in the state-wide competition.





[Personal Note: This epic show used to be on Mtv when I was a kid(in the 90s) and today I got nostalgic so I decided to re-watch it. I’m glad I did, because now that I’m older I realize how many important messages it’s casually sending out. I mean, the creators of Daria could see through people’s bullshit. Everything that society somehow managed to blind us with once again in the past few years is referred to in some sort of way, especially in this particular episode. I highly recommend this to open-minded people who are true to themselves and live free. Daria is often described as one of the most negative characters in cartoon history, but I think she just sees things as they are and not sugarcoated, like everyone around her. People who have a similar perspective to her in real life should be heard more and not the crap we see on TV nowadays.]

“Daria: The system failed us.

Jane: The system sucks. We’re going to have to go outside the system.”

I don’t know how I feel about acrylics on this kind of paper… I like the brightness of the colors, but it dries super fast, it’s pretty frustrating. Anyways, first practice with dem things.
