Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
The Morgendorffer parents enjoy some separate quality time with their daughters in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. Jake (voice of Julian Rebolledo) gets to bond with Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) when she accompanies him to a franchising convention where he hopes to meet business guru Terry Perry Barlow. Thanks to a chance encounter with Jodie's well-connected parents, he does, but Daria is unimpressed with the blowhard executive or his latest business venture. Her candor earns Barlow's respect -- and an invitation for Daria and Jake to join him on a hot-air balloon ride. Too bad Jake is afraid of heights. Meanwhile, back in Lawndale, Helen and Quinn (both voiced by Wendy Hoopes) enjoy some together time when the Fashion Club arrives for an impromptu sleepover and guilt-trips Helen into undergoing a makeover. Slathered in cosmetics, Helen reverts to her teenaged self and confesses some of her "boy problems" with Jake to the girls. Quinn and Co. face some boy problems of their own the next morning when Jamie (voice of Marc Thompson), Joey (voice of Steven Huppert) and Jeffy (voice of Tim Novikoff) show up and spy them sans their outfits and makeup. As for Daria and Jake, their journey ends with a similar sight when they take a side trip to the Museum of Medical Oddities.
