Mean Girls

Damian makes his first appearance, in Cady’s homeroom, along with Janis. The two befriend her, skip class together, and try to guide her through how high school life usually is. He doesn’t seem as involved when Cady begins spying on the Plastics, despite joining in when they plot against Regina, after she gets back together with Aaron. At Christmas, he gives out the candy canes and performs at the talent show, where he has a shoe thrown at him that he then throws back. When the nominees for Spring Fling Queen are announced, it’s implied that he voted for Janis (making her a runner up) as a joke.

Overtime, as Cady becomes more distant from the two, Damian goes with Janis to an art show that Cady was supposed to come to. However, Cady lied that she had to go away with her parents, so she could stay behind and host a get-together to talk to Aaron. This becomes a huge party, that Damian drives past later, realizing that Cady had lied to them. He slows the car so Janis and Cady can argue, but cannot stop as he has a curfew.

At the Spring Fling, Damian and Janis wear matching tuxedos. As Cady throws pieces of the Spring Fling Queen crown, Damian catches a piece of it. Cady comes to apologize, asking for the three to be friends again, and they make up. He and Janis kiss at the dance, but unanimously agree that it was disgusting, and stop dancing with each other.
