A fire in the Morgendorffer house sends Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) and her family to a hotel for a few weeks of dubious R & R in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. It's Jake (voice of Julian Rebolledo), of course, who sets the fire -- by accidentally igniting a paper towel while making himself a cup of warm milk. But he's also the chief beneficiary, since he gets to canoodle with wife Helen (voice of Wendy Hoopes) by the pool during their hotel sojourn. Daria and Quinn (voice of Wendy Hoopes), meanwhile, get stuck sharing a room, which leads to frayed nerves all around -- especially when the Fashion Club arrives to hang out imperiously. By the time Bobby, a love-struck bellboy, begins lavishing expensive attentions on Quinn, a fed-up Daria decides to bunk with best friend Jane (voice of Wendy Hoopes). But the Lane house, too, is fraught with danger, from chance encounters with Jane's hot brother, Trent (voice of Alvaro J. Gonzalez), to not-so-chance encounters with Jane's boyfriend, Tom (voice of Russell Hankin), who seems more interested in discussing history and politics with Daria than in hanging out with Jane herself. Just when this nascent love triangle is heating to a slow boil, it turns out that bellboy Bobby has actually been stealing hotel amenities in his effort to woo Quinn. With the stalker in the hands of the authorities, Helen and Jake whisk their daughters home, but Daria is lost in thought -- about Tom.
