==Importance== This is a crucial episode for Jane and Trent: we finally see their immediate family, which had been just mentioned in episodes or in the books. "[[The Daria Diaries]]" and "[[The Daria Database]]" had already made it clear that Jane & Trent's parents were often absent and negligently so, and this was confirmed on screen. While Jane calls it "benign", it darkened the character's backstories. Trent's mournful memories of being in a tent for six months "waiting for someone to invite me back in" (which [[Amanda Lane|his mother]] remembers as an example of things sorting themselves out and where a young Jane was the one feeding him) shows this upbringing has left some marks. In a [http://www.slate.com/id/2254116/pagenum/2 review] of the series, Reihan Salam of ''Slate'' called this "one of the best episodes". He also points to it as an example of how Jane "clearly needs" the bond she's developed with Daria: running away to the Morgendorffers show "Daria has become Jane's surrogate family".
