The Morgendorffer women discover unlikely similarities between their significant others in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. Quinn (voice of Wendy Hoopes) decides she needs to get a steady boyfriend so her mother will think she's more mature. The Fashion Club is aghast, but Sandi (voice of Janie Mertz) supports Quinn's decision so there will be more guys for her to date. Unfortunately, Quinn's limited conversational repertoire and demanding nature scuttle her would-be couplehood with first Jamie (voice of Marc Thompson), then Joey (voice of Steven Huppert). She finally settles on Jeffy (voice of Tim Novikoff) and invites him to attend a family dinner. Tom (voice of Russell Hankin) also plans to attend, much to the consternation of Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff), who dreads her father's antics and Tom's reaction to them. The meal gets off on a good note, but soon Jake (voice of Julian Rebolledo) begins ranting about the squirrels that have been upsetting his garbage cans. Jake, Tom, and Jeffy soon retire to the yard, where they hunt down the offending critters and engage in male bonding. Meanwhile, Quinn despairs of ever finding a suitable steady -- until Helen advises her that true maturity means doing what makes you happy. Delighted, Quinn goes back to playing the field. As for the guys, they end the evening with a road trip and a visit to the go-cart rink, confirming Daria's worst fears about pack behavior in the human male.
