Opening Teaser

As Danny sips his morning cup of coffee, Michelle comes downstairs and gives him a strange present: a bleach container with colored patches and a huge hole to insert things, which he does to figure out what the item is. He tries an apple, and she shakes her head as it's not a fruit holder. He tries some flowers, and she shakes her head again as it's not a plant holder. Then, Stephanie comes downstairs and spoils the surprise: a bird feeder.


Becky's wealthy and snobby cousin Dick Donaldson has arrived in town from Nebraska with his wife Donna and twin daughters Debbie and Darla. They have come to town to attend a convention for twins, where a "favorite twins" contest will take place. As soon as Dick arrives, he and Jesse start trading insults. Jesse can't stand Dick because of his snobby attitude. Jesse tells Dick that if he were his mechanic, he would be having brake problems. Dick tells Jesse that it was a smart move when he decided not to enter Nicky and Alex in the contest, because they shouldn't be put through that kind of rejection. That remark pushes Jesse too far, and he decides to enter Nicky and Alex in the contest after all. Becky doesn't like the fact that the reason why Jesse entered the boys is because he wants to take Dick down a few pegs.

Nicky and Alex beat Debbie and Darla, and Dick and Donna are absolutely stunned that their daughters finished in second place. A pair of muscle-bound twins escort a protesting Dick out of the building. Later, Becky finally admits to Jesse that Dick is a snob who didn't deserve to win.

Meanwhile, Stephanie receives some tips from D.J. on how to attract a guy, and when she meets Andrew and Thomas, a pair of twin boys her age at the contest, she will do anything to win them over – even if it means pretending that she is also a twin. Stephanie borrows D.J.'s hat and sweater to try and prove it. When it eventually fails, she confesses to the boys that the reason she said that she had a twin was because she likes them. They say that they like her too, then proceed to good-naturedly fight over her. Stephanie says that there is enough of her to go around.
