In the fifth series, Quinn began to challenge Sandi's authority in the group more openly and successfully, and there were indications that Quinn no longer valued her Fashion Club membership; the insecure [[Stacy Rowe]] also started to stand up to Sandi, possibly inspired by Quinn. "Fat Like Me" saw Stacy support one of Quinn's challenges; "Lucky Strike" had Quinn stand up to Sandi over Daria's substitute teaching, with Stacy (and Tiffany) deliberately undercutting Sandi's subsequent attempt to shame her for being related to Daria; and "[[Life in the Past Lane]]" had Stacy work with Upchuck despite Sandi's dispproval, and even get a dig in at her. In each case, Sandi backed down rather than continue the fight.

The MTV "[[Selective Soulmate|Fashion Club Guide to Digital Dating]]" website revealed that Sandi has to look outside of Lawndale to find dates, due to "a completely undeserved reputation for paranoia and viciousness. When I find out who's behind those rumors I will skin them alive."

"[[Is It College Yet?]]" had Sandi lose her voice due to a viral infection, which Stacy believed was due to ''her'' wishing Sandi would shut up. Despite Stacy's terror of Sandi finding out and her desire to placate her, when Sandi gave her a list of tasks to make up for it, Stacy refused. This started a wave of Fashion Club members taking indefinite sabbaticals, and in the face of that Sandi claimed that she too had been thinking of doing that ''anyway''. Despite no longer being a formal club, they continued to be friends and hang out talking about fashion anyway...

Many fics depict Sandi's personality flaws as the result of a troubled home life.  Generally, such fics show Sandi's mother Linda as a hard-driving women with a take-no-prisoners attitude who expects her daughter to live up to her example and Sandi's father as a henpecked nobody who bows to his wife's will in everything, including raising the children (though "[[Winter in Hell]]" had him not care about Sandi at all).  In many cases, the Griffins are depicted as on the edge of divorce if not actually already divorced.  Troubled Home Life Sandi is often portrayed sympathetically and sometimes becomes Redeemed Sandi, with the collapse of her parents' marriage being the experience that molds her.

Examples of Troubled Home Life Sandi that do not cross over into Redeemed Sandi include [[GTS]], especially GTS #4: [[Closets Are for Hang-ups]], [[Heartbeat in Iambic]] by [[Dennis]], and both [[It's Like the Beginning of an Era]] and [http://thepaperpusher.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=30430 Moving the Goalposts] by [[Kristen Bealer]].

* Janie Mertz also provided the talent for characters [[Brittany Taylor]], and Sandi's mother, [[Linda Griffin|Linda]].  Sandi speaks in a low, sonorous voice, while Brittany's speech is high pitched and squeaky.  Both characters' voices have a similar amount of stress and intonation in their speech patterns.
