Episode Summary

It's twins day, and everyone is celebrating. Chris tells Abby and Zoe that a twin is someone who has a sister or a brother who was born on the same day, then introduces his twin sister, Christy. Abby and Zoe decide they want to go to the party too, so they pretend to be twins and do everything the same.

They both try to stand on their hands and balance on one leg at the party, but they aren't successful. Meanwhile, the Count counts all of the identical and fraternal twins. Chris and Christy explain what identical and fraternal means, and Abby and Zoe decide to become identical twins by wearing the same outfit.

Now they look like twins, but are still different because Zoe can't spin and Abby doesn't have a pet rock. Once Abby changes back to herself, Chris shows them that twins can do different things even if they look the same. Abby and Zoe discover that they both love to jump, and they become the jumping twins!
