Daphne Vane is a third-class member of her world. She not only has to ride back in coach, other people decide what flight she’ll be on. We’re talking in metaphors, of course. It’s all about love, sex, and marriage — you know, things that can make your life even more uncomfortable than a middle seat on an airplane.

Sucks to be you, Daphne!
