A school camping expedition sets the stage for true confessions, fashion faux pas, and Blair Witch Project shenanigans in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. When Mr. O'Neill (voice of Marc Thompson) announces an optional overnight field trip, Quinn (voice of Wendy Hoopes) is delighted to go on an outdoor-gear shopping spree. But Helen (voice of Wendy Hoopes) has to bribe Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) into attending so that she and Jake (voice of Julian Rebolledo) can take a trip of their own and rekindle their "intimacy." The expedition proves to be more terrifying then educational when a freak blizzard strands the students and their teachers in a wooded winter wonderland. Food and water are in short supply because the camping gear has been inadvertently left behind in favor of Quinn's frivolous "survival" threads -- a situation that almost costs the girl her Fashion Club membership. Meanwhile, Mr. O'Neill ends up stranded in a cave videotaping his last confession on the camera he's supposed to be using to film the students' extreme-sports hijinks. Elsewhere, Mr. DeMartino (voice of Marc Thompson) endures a long, frozen night of the soul during his quest to find help -- the same quest that leads Daria and Jane (voice of Wendy Hoopes) to do a little bonding when it seems as if they're doomed. Help arrives unexpectedly, though, when Mr. D. stumbles onto a cozy cabin retreat where the elder Morgendorffers are trying in vain to connect.
