==Plot Summary== At the Morgendorffer residence, the family excitedly prepares for the day("Morning in the Burbs"). Not even the announcement of a possible hurricane in Lawndale gets their spirits down. At [[Lawndale High]] during lunchtime, [[Brittany Taylor|Brittany]] mentions in passing that it is Pep rally day; this prompts [[Daria Morgendorffer|Daria]] and [[Jane Lane|Jane]] to make plans to spend the afternoon on the roof. During the pep rally, however, [[Angela Li|Ms. Li]] anxiously informs the staff and students present that the hurricane has been confirmed and is heading in their direction: the game is cancelled and all must go home. Everyone leaves the school wondering how Lawndale and their lives could be affected by the storm ("If the Town Blew Away"). Up on the roof, Daria reads the news of the imminent hurricane in the newspaper, and she and Jane speculate on the consequences of its passing ("If the Town Blew Away"). On their way out they run into [[Kevin Thompson|Kevin]] and Brittany, who had snuck out of the gym to make out. After convincing both that the hurricane is happening, they get stuck on the roof when Kevin inadvertently lets the door close. They then lament over the fact that they are probably going to die ("If the Town Blows Away"). Meanwhile, other places in Lawndale are preparing for the Hurricane. In Helen's law firm, [[Marianne]] and [[Eric Schrecter|Eric]] quickly leave, but [[Helen Morgendorffer|Helen]] stays a little longer, commenting to herself that she loves to work ("Don't They Know I Can't Leave Yet", sang in duet with Quinn). At the same time, [[Cashman's]] is closing, prompting a despondent Quinn to lament over the fact she can't get her perfect dresses that day ("Don't They Know I Can't Leave Yet", sang in duet with Helen). [[Image:Daria!_angels.jpg|left|thumb|180px|Jake's song imagines Daria and Quinn "joinin' that heavenly choir!".]] [[Jake Morgendorffer|Jake]] is also coming home, driving and trying to call his house. The despair over the lack of answer and the traffic makes him drive recklessly and hope that both his daughters are safe ("Gah, Gah, Dammit!"). When he arrives, he finds Quinn and Helen preparing for the hurricane. As none of them know Daria's whereabouts, they call the Lane's and Helen insists for [[Trent Lane|Trent]] to come and stay with them for the storm's duration. Daria, for her part, is still stuck on the school roof with Jane, Brittany and Kevin. For lack of a better option, they decide to hide in a small shack on the roof. While inside, all think and sing about their respective families and how they must be worrying about them ("They Must be Worried"). At the Morgendorffer's, Trent has arrived and all are enjoying some cocoa. Jake laments over being unable to search for Daria. As Helen intervenes, claiming that it's no use "playing superman" and going outside with the rain and wind. Jake snaps, saying that, in an emergency, a thought man is necessary ("Manly"). In a show of bravado, Jake and Trent leave to search for Daria and Jane. Unfortunately, they quickly crash the car. [[Image:Daria!_rainbow.jpg|right|thumb|250px|"The big wet rainstorm's over!"]] Meanwhile, the shack on the school roof is slowly falling apart, so the four inside decide to leave before it breaks down completely. As the door is stuck, Kevin strikes it down, prompted by Brittany, Daria and Jane ("Manly"). When they get out, the storm has passed and a clear sky with a rainbow greets them. The four sing and dance with the joy of having survived the hurricane ("The Big Wet Rainstorm's Over"), a song that is also sang by other inhabitants of Lawndale: The Fashion Club, happy that they can shop once again; [[Mack Mackenzie|Mack]] and [[Jodie Landon|Jodie]], disappointed that Lawndale has stayed the same; the [[Trike Girl]]; and Jake and Trent, who recuperate while Jake rants about the car accident. As Jake and Trent leave the car, they meet Daria and Jane (who presumably walked home). All greet and embrace each other enthusiastically and are soon joined by Helen and Quinn, also happy they are all right. Daria then breaks the fourth wall and comments to the viewer about the strangeness of the day and the hope another weird day will come. All Lawndale citizens then join them, singing about the next morning in Lawndale ("Morning in the Burbs").
