In spite of this, Quinn does have some depth, though it is hidden by a great deal of low self-esteem in terms of her value. As she confesses to Daria in the season two episode "[[Monster]]", Quinn feels that looking pretty and being popular are the only things she is good at, hence why she focuses on them exclusively, even though she sometimes feels disgusted that this is all her and her friends talk about. She also has muted academic ambitions, though her efforts almost always end up getting her in trouble with her friends who all deride the notion of intellectually bettering oneself.

In spite of this, Quinn does have some depth, though it is hidden by a great deal of low self-esteem in terms of her value. <br> As she confesses to Daria in the season two episode "[[Monster]]", Quinn feels that looking pretty and being popular are the only things she is good at, hence why she focuses on them exclusively, even though she sometimes feels disgusted that this is all her and her friends talk about. She also has muted academic ambitions, though her efforts almost always end up getting her in trouble with her friends who all deride the notion of intellectually bettering oneself. In "[[Daria!]]", Quinn sings a duet where she admits that "it doesn't matter really what I do or wear", but she has a compulsion to be dressed perfectly to impress people, and ''has'' to be better than everyone else at it: being second isn't bad "as long as no one else was first". (As she realizes people would think this was mad, she never admits to it) Daria sums up her sister in "[[Psycho Therapy]]" as focusing on shallow things because she's afraid that she hasn't ''got'' any depth.

The later seasons of the series have Quinn reconsidering her priorities and coming to value her intelligence and her family in her own way, starting with "[[Is It Fall Yet?]]": Quinn discovers her SAT scores are similar to the Fashion Club's, and she feels she should be able to do better. She starts using a tutor, [[David Sorenson]], who forcibly points out to her that she's bright enough to understand the subjects but just isn't trying, and that she's a boring person who will only be popular while her looks last. Quinn, rattled, admits she wants to do well and ends up showing greater academic ability, as she's now putting in the effort. This continues into "[[Lucky Strike]]", where her better grades again clash with the Fashion Club; Daria would also tell Quinn in this episode that she was not stupid.
