Too add to this situation, Helen forces Daria to volunteer as a counselor in [[Timothy O'Neill|Timothy O’Neill’s]] [[Okay To Cry Corral]] summer camp. Along with O’Neill and Daria is [[Anthony DeMartino]], who has joined the camp in the hope of rediscovering his joys of teaching. Daria is assigned several children, including a depressed and angry boy named [[Link]]. Due to O’Neill’s over-protective nature, the camp is everything but fun, with teachers and counselors alike spending all day indoors indulging in boring tasks, despite the kids repeated pleas to play outside.

Summer also goes on for the other Lawndale High students: Kevin and Brittany, as lifeguards in the pool, spend more time enjoying each others' company than watching kids. Mack has a bad time having to put up with bratty children as an ice cream truck driver. Plus he doesn’t even see Jodie, who can’t make time to be with him due to her many summer activities.

On the other hand, Daria’s summer hits rock bottom when, after trying to avoid Tom, she provokes a fight with him. Daria starts by justifying her dating uneasiness on their different social levels and defending Jane when Tom unintentionally makes a disparaging comment about her, but he is able to put her on the spot by pointedly stating she’s the one afraid to get hurt by the relationship. When Daria doesn’t reply, he breaks up with her and drives off. Between this event, Link’s rejection and her sister’s request for advice about David, for whom she is starting to fall for, Daria desperately phones Jane and begs to go visit her. Jane first refuses, but then relents and indicates [[Trent Lane|Trent’s]] upcoming gig at bar nearby.

Daria takes a ride to the art camp in the [[Mystik Spiral]] van, with Trent driving and trying to console her. However, his efforts contrast with him chanting aloud a song about betrayal. Arriving at Ashfield, they are received by Jane, who first shows Daria her works and listens of Daria’s take about Link before the two of them go out to talk about their situation. They first get into a heated argument about who blew the other off for Tom (referring to when Jane was spending time with Tom and, later, when Daria started dating him) before Jane emotionally reveals her pain at the fact Daria had almost destroyed their friendship just to have a boyfriend. Seeing Jane hurt, Daria remorsefully apologizes. Jane forgives her and the two young women resume their friendship as Mystik Spiral plays a song dedicated to friendship.

The next day, Daria explains the reasons for her breakup as she prepares to leave with Trent. Jane listens and then advises her friend to give Tom another chance, stating that, this time, she is really over Daria and Tom’s betrayal and that they could make a good couple.

Daria and Quinn are both stated (by Helen and Daria respectively) to hide their real selves behind masks for fear of what would happen if their real selves were shown. While this concept had been raised in both "[[Quinn the Brain]]" (Quinn) and "[[Psycho Therapy]]" (both, with Daria casually admitting to it), this is the first time it was made explicit that ''both'' of them are using the same tactic.

The question DeMartino poses to Quinn at the end of the episode "What is [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manifest_destiny Manifest Destiny]?" is the same question he asked of Daria on their first day at Lawndale in "[[Esteemsters]]".

Alison is the sole character to be confirmed as non-heterosexual in ''Daria'''s entire run, and unfortunately follows the "predatory lesbian/bisexual" stereotype. However, the "Future Egos" of "[[Is It College Yet?]]," while not strictly [[canon]], seem to imply she eventually gets into a happy relationship with [[Lindy]].
