"Pierce Me" was the twelfth episode of the second season of Daria.


This episode highlighted Daria's attraction to Trent. Trent persuades Daria to help find a birthday present for Jane (it doesn't take much). "I'll pick you up tomorrow," Trent tells her. "Early. Or late. I don't know. Actually let's just leave it loose." Largely due to Trent's random thought processes, Daria ends up getting her navel pierced at Axl's Piercing Parlor, largely, it seems, to impress Trent.

The usual hilarity ensues.

Adam is briefly mentioned as one of Quinn's dates.


  • Jake is immediately suspicious when a guy says he's here to see Daria and not Quinn.
  • Trent Lane can't or won't set foot in a bookstore for reasons he doesn't want to talk about.

“Pierce Me” and Fanfic

The obvious crush Daria has on Trent was at the forefront in this episode and subsequently helped fuel the shipper movement in early fanfic.
