    I keep wondering what kind of life experience would be necessary to jolt Jeri out of her archetypical-dumb-blonde-self-centered-valley-girl psyche, and what it is that makes so many people in real life (guys included) end up in that mode. It’s a puzzlement, and it’s disturbing, because these people end up in the workplace or as parents.

    Love. And all of its imitations. Love is not founded on logic; hence it defies logic, exists outside of it. That is why it escapes description and reasoning. and partly why it is as miserable as it is joyous.

    Jeri has a lot in common with Quinn Morgendorffer in “Daria” – in that particular TV comic, the vacuous and shallow Quinn eventually finds depth and maturity when she grows up, marries and has three kids. A lesson for Jeri or a glimpse of her future?

    Wretched, bored, dejected; only
    here’s the rub, my darling dear,
    I feel the same when you’re near”

    There are a lot of good comments today! As for “Daria”, wow, I vaguely remember that! I never saw when Quinn grew up and became an adult – was it kind of like the ending of this Preteena, a glimpse into the future?

    I hadn’t heard that the Daria series continued that far. I was sorry to see it end, sometime in 2002 as I remember, but I hadn’t heard that it continued. Quinn married and a mom of three? Well then what became of Daria?

    @Chelsea Prochaska:
    Daria: There was an episode towards the end of the run that included a possible glimpse into the future of the Morgendorffer family. Quinn was stated to be 28, which I guess means Daria had only just turned thirty. (She was the dead spit of Aunt Amy, which is unsurprising). Daria had become a nationally successful magazine and newspaper columnist. She was married to a university professor. Her father had retired after three heart attacks and a major caridac bypass and learnt to take it easy – he had genuinely mellowed out. Helen had also learnt to get work and family into proportion and seemed twenty times happier for it. Quinn said motherhood had changed her completely and she could not beleive how shallow and vacuous she’d been in high school. (Although she did marry one of her three interchangeable dates.) A good footnote to the series, I thought!
