Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) enjoys her first major brush with Lawndale High's popular crowd in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. After Daria helps classmate Brittany (voice of Lisa Collins) on a school assignment, the dim-witted cheerleader invites her to a bash at the nouveau riche digs she shares with her wealthy family. Jane (voice of Wendy Hoopes), Daria's newfound best friend, urges her to attend so they can people-watch and so Jane can do some sketching. Daria's motives for going, however, center on her desire to embarrass Quinn (voice of Wendy Hoopes), her snooty, stick-thin, fashion-plate sister. Getting into Brittany's gated community proves challenging, but soon Daria and Jane are making snide remarks to each other about the clueless "beautiful people." While Jane goes off with a cute guy, Daria regales her sister's new football-player harem -- Jamie (voice of Marc Thompson), Joey (voice of Steven Huppert), and Jeffy (voice of Tim Novikoff) -- with humiliating anecdotes about Quinn's childhood. Once that stops providing amusement, Daria and Jane split -- just in time to escape the arriving police. The girls reluctantly accept a ride home from lascivious nerd Charles Ruttheimer III, who is known almost universally as Upchuck (voice of Marc Thompson). Much to her chagrin, Quinn is forced to ride with him, too.
