47 Best Daria Quotes from Season 2

Best Daria Quotes

Table of Contents

Love or hate MTV’s animated series Beavis and Butthead, the one thing we can all agree on is its spin-off show, Daria, was extremely successful in navigating the nonstop nuance of tedious teen life.

Starring Daria Morgendorffer, her sister Quin and their parents Helen and Jake – the show follows the four of them as they navigate American lifestyle in a brand new town. Specifically focusing on Daria Morgendorffer, the show quickly introduces Daria to her new best friend Jane, and together the pair navigate the dynamics of High School life and (most importantly) how to avoid the dynamics of High School life.

A self professed loner, Daria spends the majority of her time at high school avoiding her selfish sister, Quinn, and hanging out with Jane as they plan out new and inventive ways to avoid the social traps of adolescene. Ie – parties. Thanks to the voice acting talents of Tracy Grandtsaff, Daria’s monotonal quips which reference a butt-load of pop culture quotes, are a great narrative on life in American surburbia.

We’ve included 47 quotes from the disenfranchised Daria and we hope you enjoy all of them.
