Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
The opening of a "big box" discount store in Lawndale brings Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) and Jane (voice of Wendy Hoopes) into the orbit of a huge assortment of whacked-out characters in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. After Tom (voice of Russell Hankin) eats the candy Jane was going to use for an unusual art project and Quinn (voice of Wendy Hoopes) steals Daria's boot lace to use as a purse strap, the surly twosome must trek to the grand opening of the new warehouse store in search of their respective wares. There, they cross paths with Brittany (voice of Janie Mertz) and Kevin (voice of Marc Thompson), who are looking for barbecue sauce for a for a school cookout, and the Fashion Club, who have come in search of sunscreen only to be horrified at the lack of prestigious brands and prices. The strangest encounter of all, though, is with usually silent goth chick Andrea (voice of Janie Mertz), who is surprised that the snide Daria and Jane don't make fun of her for her Siouxsie & the Banshees getup or the after-school job her parents forced her to take at the discount store. Meanwhile, Tom tags along to the store with Trent (voice of Alvaro J. Gonzalez) in hopes of apologizing to the irate Jane and Mr. DeMartino (voice of Marc Thompson) causes a blackout during a fracas over free cheese logs. Back at the barbecue, Mr. O'Neill (also voice of Marc Thompson) doesn't fare much better, his conversation with Kevin's father about the quarterback's poor grades earning him a little melee of his own.
