===Daria's Reading Material=== While grounded, Daria is shown reading Herman Melville's [[wikipedia:Moby-Dick|''Moby-Dick'']] in the living room. This may be commentary on Helen's Ahab Ahab-like mania for legal procedure. Later, when Quinn breaks down and asks her sister for a book, Daria is reading [[wikipedia:Fyodor Dostoevsky|Fyodor Dostoyevsky's]] [[wikipedia:The_Brothers_Karamazov|''The Brothers Karamazov'']]. Daria offers Quinn her copy of Homer's ''Iliad'': <blockquote style="font-family: Courier, sans;"> <p> Daria: Try this. I think you'll get into it. </p> <p> Quinn: Ha, ha, very funny. Now give me something that I can read. </p> <p> Daria: No, I think you'll like it. It's about this girl who's so popular that everybody fights over her. </p> <p> Quinn: Any horses in it? </p> <p> Daria: As a matter of a fact, there's a great big one. </p> <p> Quinn: This is a trick, isn't it. </p> <p> Daria: Yes. </p> </blockquote> It should be noted that ''The Iliad'' does not include the story about the Trojan Horse; this story appears in ''The Aeneid''. Since Daria's supposed to have read ''The Iliad'', she's probably having fun at Quinn's expense (and that the writers forgot which play it was).
