Jane: Ugh, Brittany dripped black hair dye all over my shoes last night.
Daria: Are you sure it wasn't her brains?
Jane: Yeah, I'm sure. There was too much of it.
Kevin: I'm a QB! It's not like I'm a brain or anything.
Mac: Truer words were never spoken.
Quotes: When wanting to better best quote the show’s clever quotes and quips… I refrained myself from quoting many of them, as this I was sure I would mess up show’s integrity and interesting lines. So these three quotes (at present moment) will be sufficient and they will be the only ones I need submit! -X; Who
[In Episode referencing ex-football player, Tommy Sherman and him having had just died, and girl coming up to Daria for consoling, counseling advice… Jane Lane says then to Daria]: “You just made $10 dollars off that poor girl’s suffering.” [Daria]: “You’re right, Jane… next time… (it’ll be) twenty (dollars).”
[In “Arts ‘N Crass Episode, Jane Lane comments on Daria’s natural, individual self]: “Wow, excellent, Daria. You’re youthful integrity is tearing your family asunder.”
[Jessie, Trent’s male musician amigo, says]: “We have to be there, at the flea market, by 7:00AM, this to setup our stand and supplies.” [Jane Lane]: “No problem. Daria’s an early bird.” [Creatively capturing that moment of an early bird at sunrise, Daria says]: “There’s nothing more special than seeing a sun rise… this of course, except, if, when, and then, watching it set… in reverse (of course).” *I rewrote Daria’s quote here, which now nears more to my liking… And in my thinking, this after rewriting it, I think that it, this particular scene, maintains its integrity, its philosophical, logical, and original beauty*
Helen Morgendorffer: All right, Ms. Li, let me make sure I have this straight; You took my daughter's poster from her, altered it's content, exhibited it against her will, and are now threatening discipline because you claim she defaced her own property which you admit to stealing?
Ms. Angela Li: That's not what I said at all!
Helen Morgendorffer: Ms. Li, are you familiar with the phrase "Violation of Civil Liberties"?
Ms. Angela Li: I...
Helen Morgendorffer: [Interrupting] And the phrase "Big fat lawsuit"?

Coarse Language: Neighborly Notice: Varying Vernaculars: There were a few, if not a slew of, frightening word displays. The sarcastic sayings as per thru their fluent speaking, sarcastic owners, were rough. Personally, I’m not into sarcasm or sardonic sayings. However, I did think Daria to have had used her sarcasms for positive purposes and approaches. In that regard, it was not, too, terrible! –X; Who

Earlier Part of Review is in Comments Section: This here is Part2 of Review: (14)I’m not sure if anyone would or would want agree with me on this, but I find Daria to be as like a Rock Lee, a Bushy Brow, the ninja character from anime, Naruto. I say this, knowing this sounds preposterous, ““but I believe both, Daria and Lee are as: “Effort Masters””. And plus, Daria is at her best, a ninja, herself! She being honest, this in open daylight, and still no one (but Jane Lane and a select few) truly see and hear her world. This especially is why I think she is like Rock Lee; her having had formed her tenacious tinkering, thinking thoughts, takes massive, mega, actual effort. Others may think she is lacking in spirit and fortitude, but what they may miss is what I would call, a spitting image of Rock Lee! She’s that honestly awesome! She’s that awesomely good! She holds nothing back… not for an instant… and this before she makes her quick wit, word quip, clever, word mouthing move! Awesome, indeed! (15)Mrs. B, the economics teacher, had reminded me of show’s King of the Hill, female, teaching character, Peggy Hill! (16)I had liked the character’s eyes and how they’d be as one color, and them, the eyes, having no center pupil! (17)Neighborly Notice: Varying Vernaculars: There are a few, if not a slew of, frightening word displays. The sarcastic sayings as per their fluent speaking, sarcastic owners, can be rough. Personally, I’m not into sarcasm or sardonic sayings. However, I did think Daria to have had utilized her sarcasms for more positive purposes and approaches. In that regard, it was not, too, terribly horrific! (18)I had thought Daria, the animation, to be as a terrific juxtaposition, as this regarding social subjects of our so, said, supposed society! (19)In relation to College Bound Episode: I’ve related to that burnt out feeling a few fold times from my seeming life… And yet, and as well, attributing to this burnt out feeling, I might write that it had probably started out from when I was a child. I had realized, yeah, I could compete with others on their planes of existence, and yeah, I know competitions are as an illusion, but I’ll just stay in the game… I’ll remain as mute, so as I don’t have to pretentiously pretend to be boring, banal, and be deceptively cute! (20)Given to time constraints, I had only managed to finish first season of show, Daria. I apologize to Daria, to all whom have apathetic souls, and to all whom had provided and enjoyed this piece; I apologize, as well, to myself; as I could have done better; I was feeling tired as of late and neglected my normal kind of write-up review viewpoints… that’s my own fault… that is if fault is a requirement here; though perhaps, I’ll re-write and re-edit this Daria entry, this on some other day! Does that sound okay? (21)As per finishing show, Daria, someday, I would want and like that, this vastly, very much! **TagsSummary: apathy, apathetic, shallowness, superficial, sarcasm, social commentary, America lifestyles, enthusiasm is enemy, self awareness, high school, wit, witty, wit wielding, popular people, unpopular people, fashion, culture, culturally acceptable, intellect, I am, friends, bonds, character comparisons. ***Rating: 6.3/5.0; Xandor Who
