A parade provides an unexpected opportunity for Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) to bond with Tom (voice of Russell Hankin), her best friend's beau, in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. When Daria's bathroom-stranded dad (voice of Julian Rebolledo) sends her to the drugstore to pick up some toilet paper, she unexpectedly finds herself in the middle of the Lawndale High homecoming parade. Desperate to escape, she instead finds herself trapped by the crowds, by the safety-obsessed Ms. Li (voice of Nora Laudani), and by Mr. O'Neill (voice of Marc Thompson), who's running around in an animal costume accosting people. Eventually, Daria runs into Tom, who's looking for Jane (voice of Wendy Hoopes), and they both assist a lost little boy in locating his parents. Although Daria and Tom's relationship up to this point has ranged from cool to hostile, they slowly begin to "get" one another's personality and sense of humor. After a run-in with the Fashion Club, they finally locate Jane just in time for Daria to get splashed with paint -- blue and yellow, the school's colors. Daria goes home to clean up and the happy couple head off on their date, but a long, longing glance from Tom to Daria suggests something strange is brewing.
