Today is the 110th anniversary of the birth of Margaret Mitchell, author of the novel Gone with the Wind. The movie adaptation was referenced several times during the Daria series, from Jane's "Oh, Scarlet, you grow lovelier by the day!" line in "I Don't" to Ms. Barch swearing "As God is my witness," in "Antisocial Climbers" to Daria and Quinn watching the movie itself in "Aunt Nauseam."
I guess someone on staff was a fan!
