==Summary== When [[Timothy O'Neill|Mr. O'Neill]] asks for volunteers to help with the upcoming school dance, [[Quinn Morgendorffer|Quinn]] volunteers to head the dance committee -- after a volunteer-phobic [[Sandi Griffin|Sandi]], remember a horrible time she had running a dance at junior high, eggs her on in the hope she'll suffer -- with [[the Fashion Club]] as her advisors. However, Quinn gets stuck with doing the job by herself when she and Sandi disagree on the decorations and the Fashion Club bails out. Not content with ''that'', Sandi "accidentally" schedules a party at her house the same night as the dance. Meanwhile, [[Brittany Taylor|Brittany]] and [[Kevin Thompson|Kevin]] have split up for good (for the time being, at least), and to show their loyalty to their respective leaders, no member of the [[Lawndale High School cheerleaders|cheerleading squad]] will accompany Kevin to the dance, and no member of the [[Lawndale Lions|football team]] will accompany Brittany to the dance—except, as [[Jodie Landon|Jodie]] points out to Brittany, [[Robert]], who has been on vacation with his family while this crisis developed. Overwhelmed and ''sans'' clue as to how to organize the dance, Quinn gets aid from an unexpected source: [[Jane Lane]], who at the beginning of the episode was lamenting the lack of a "medium grand enough to do justice to my inner torment," takes over the logistics and (more important) decorations from Quinn, and turns the gymnasium into a gigantic pastiche of [[wikipedia:Jackson Pollock|Jackson Pollock]]-like drip paintings—and a representational (and gory) depiction of the car crash that killed him. [[Image:Kevin VS Robert.png|thumb|200px|ROUND ONE... FIGHT!]] Sandi's party turns out to be a complete bust, and the bored guys bail out while the Fashion Club is changing into swimsuits for some hot-tubbing. At the school, the dance is in full swing, with [[Charles Ruttheimer III|Upchuck]] as the D.J. (to keep him off the dance floor), and Jane's decorations are a huge hit. Quinn is mortified by the decor, but then takes full credit for it when her two dates start complimenting her on it and she realizes that the night is a success. Daria and Jane sit on the sidelines to watch the proceedings, and soon begin chatting it up with two guys, [[Brett]] and [[Brad]], whose attitudes and outlook on life seem to be very similar to theirs. However, they back off when they find out that the guys are Upchuck's cousins, and thus are "carriers of the dreaded Ruttheimer gene". Out in the parking lot, Brittany's date Robert gets into a fight with a jealous Kevin, and [[Joey]], [[Jeffy]] and [[Jamie White|Jamie]] start fighting with Quinn's dates. In the end, Kevin and Brittany make up (while Kevin is being hauled away in an ambulance) and Daria and Jane figure that the whole evening was a wash... until it starts to snow, and they notice that the swimsuit-clad Fashion Club has been locked out of the house by Sandi's brothers.
