Taking Debate is the tenth "episode" of C.E. Forman's Lost Season One (of The Lost Seasons series), written in winter of 1999. Like all of Forman's Lost Season episodes, it is written in quasi-script form with three acts and commercials.
Daria is talked into joining Lawndale High's debate team. Quinn and Sandi join as well, thinking that the debate is a popularity contest. The debate team goes out of town (with Helen as one of the chaperons), and Daria finds herself not only sharing a room with Sandi, but also partners with her in their debate. Meanwhile, back at Lawndale High, Jane helps Stacy and Tiffany rebel against Ms. Li.
