Afterward, she complained about being judged before the loan officer learned anything about her.
Sure, she'd admit that Daria had one, and that it was all very well and good, but Daria needed to learn how to compromise out in the Real World.
She certainly never let Daria's judgment influence her in any way (unless Daria was validating her, as in "Psycho Therapy").
Now her every negative comment was second-guessed by Jodie, her mother, Jane, and Tom Sloane -- the latter of whom I'll get to in a moment.
Now Daria's responses to problems were frequently presented as childish, stubborn, and narrow-minded.
In the end, Daria swallowed the urge to mention this experience during the class presentation, and told Jodie that she (Daria) was wrong. Instead, this was just one of many episodes where Daria was discouraged from asserting her point of view.
Quinn wants to believe that Hallmark guardian angels exist? Why challenge her beliefs and possibly get into a constructive debate? But one of the worst cases of Daria being discouraged from asserting herself, or even from trusting her judgment, was in Is It Fall Yet? Daria was on the outs with Jane after kissing Tom, Jane's boyfriend.Not someone who was an "outcast" while looking and acting like a fashion model, but a genuine introvert with no interest in wider social approval.The first season established a pattern where Daria Morgendorffer and her friend, Jane Lane, stood off to one side and criticized the activities that people their age were taught to embrace.Daria later pointed out the hypocrisy, and Jodie jumped on her, berating her "black and white" view of ethics, before storming out.Later, Daria's mother suggested that Jodie was "just a little more pragmatic" than Daria and didn't appreciate being criticized for it. It would probably be a nonissue if it were balanced out by episodes that showed Daria using her sharp cynicism in a more active way, such as by joining a newspaper or at least writing her own webzine.One infamous example was in the Season Four premiere, "Partner's Complaint." Daria and Jodie worked on a school project together that required getting a loan for their made-up business.
