Whenever Jane isn't painting or creating other works of art, she like to run. So in order to spite the wrath of a tyrannical P.E. teacher, meet a cute boy, and keep herself and Daria from getting a failing grade in gym, she goes out for Lawndale High's Track & Field team and becomes an instant jock, much to the dismay of Daria, the quintessential anti-jock.Written by

When Quinn is asked to hang out with Daria, one of the things she said was for her mom to lock her in the attic for 20 years. This is possibly a reference to Blanche Monnier, a woman who was imprisoned in her attic bedroom for 25 years after refusing to fall out of love to her broke lawyer fiance that her mother and brother felt would ruin their social status if marriage happened.

In a very odd twist, Jane is coerced into joining the track team. And, unlike her best friend Daria, she actually turns out to be a natural athlete. However, something unexpected occurs--Jane learn that being a jock is like joining a secret club or a cult. In other words, as a jock you get special 'perks'--such as automatic passes on tests! While Jane likes the idea of not having to study and getting by, she doesn't like the sort of jerks that she now comes into contact with every day. So she now has a choice--should she 'play the game' and be a runner or should she stay true to herself and remain the same slacker she's always been? An interesting episode, yes, but not a particularly funny one. It did have some good things to say about athletes and scum-bag coaches, though, and is still well worth seeing--even if it is a tad weak.
