The denizens of Lawndale High endure a treacherous ride when they file onto a broken-down cruise ship for a casino fundraiser in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. All Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) and Jane (voice of Wendy Hoopes) want to do is watch "Sick, Sad World" and sleep. Instead, they're treated to a parade of ridiculous hijinks: Ms. Li (voice of Nora Laudani) besting Helen (voice of Wendy Hoopes) at poker; Jake (voice of Julian Rebolledo) being pursued by the horny wife of the ship's owner; Sandi (voice of Janie Mertz) getting her comeuppance after ridiculing Quinn (voice of Wendy Hoopes) for being stood up by her date, a talcum powder model; Brittany (voice of Janie Mertz) and Kevin (voice of Marc Thompson) drifting off into the ocean during an amorous encounter in a faulty lifeboat; and Mr. DeMartino (voice of Marc Thompson) sinking into serious gambling addiction. All of these episodes pale in comparison, however, to the climactic indignity of the voyage: the near-sinking of the cruise vessel, the Princess Fairy, during an unfortunate run-in with a garbage scow.
