The Fashion Club comes to a crisis and its haughty leader learns a bit of a lesson in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. Shortly after imperious Sandi (voice of Janie Mertz) decrees a reduction in the maximum allowable weight of Fashion Club members, she breaks her leg. By the time she returns to school, she has put on some pudge of her own thanks to the inactivity of convalescence. Sandi decides to play the martyr and bow out of her presidency, but she guilt-trips vice-president and rival Quinn (voice of Wendy Hoopes) into stepping down with her. Soon, the malleable Stacy (voice of Sarah Drew) and vacuous Tiffany (voice of Ashley Albert) are riding each other's last nerves and realizing that the club simply can't survive with a caucus of two. Lucky for them, Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) and Jane (voice of Wendy Hoopes) have a wager going on whether or not the club will survive, and Daria -- who came down on the side of the trend-worshippers -- proves even sneakier than Jane in her methods of achieving victory. Thanks to Daria's machinations, a svelte, gym-toned Sandi soon regains her crown, although she does exhibit a little more empathy toward the differently sized. The repercussions of this Fashion Club shake-up will be apparent for the rest of the show's fifth and final season, culminating in one last blowout in the Daria movie Is It College Yet?
