==Jodie and others== [[Image:Angry Jodie.png|thumb|250px|Jodie in a rare moment of blasting someone, in "Gifted"]] Much like Mack is always around [[Kevin Thompson]], Jodie finds herself always hanging around and giving advice to [[Brittany Taylor]]. She would sometimes like to snap at Brittany for being stupid, but usually checks herself. But all the same, she can't resist in jabbing her every so once in a while. This is usually in a very subtle way that she knows will go over Brittany's head, such as in "[[The Lab Brat]]" ("I can't believe anyone would try to take Kevin away from you") and "[[The Big House]]": '''Kevin:''' "They did mental stuff to her, I can tell." '''Brittany:''' "Nobody better try that on me!" '''Jodie:''' "Yeah." The only ''explicit'' jab was in "[[Gifted]]", where she just told her "rent a brain". Jodie had launched another jab in "Gifted", where she tears into [[Grove Hills]] student [[Graham]] for his banal elitism. Before that, Jodie had been trying to give everyone a chance and make friends with the others; Graham had just pushed her to the edge. Normally, she swallows her anger and contempt for someone and puts on a nice front. [[Image:JodieMack_float.jpg|left|250px|thumb|Jodie and Mack suffer being the Homecoming couple ("[[I Loathe a Parade]]")]] [[Joma|Jodie's relationship with Mack]] runs throughout the series, and they're often seen together as a stable unit. We rarely see them being that romantic, though they do engage in Daria/Jane style banter on a regular basis and "[[My Night at Daria's]]" reveals they're having sex. The relationship is hinted to be under strain during the series and in the spin-off books, with Jodie unable to fully commit to time with him. In the MTV feature [http://www.mtv.com/onair/daria/chapter2/tangle.jhtml "It Takes Two To Tangle"], this stress and frustration is presented as the defining factor of their relationship and it adds "they should sign up for a 12-step program--but she only has time for two." . In ''[[The Daria Diaries]]'', Jodie even questions ''why'' she dates him, whether it's because she genuinely likes him or "because he's who he is and you're who you are and others don't care to question the equation?" [[Jane]] seems to trust Jodie. She twice tells Jodie about Daria's problems ([[Ill]], [[Through a Lens Darkly]]), and tells Jodie about her problems with Tom and Daria ([[Fire!]]).
