Storyline

Now that Regina and Daphne have completely moved into the Kennish's home, many of Kathryn's friends and neighbors have begun asking questions. Kathryn decides it's best to keep their situation a secret and devises a lie, in an effort to protect Bay, who quickly becomes victim to town gossip. Bay asks Daphne more about her biological father, but is shut down, leaving her more determined to further investigate. Meanwhile, John gets involved in Daphne's basketball games, and it's there that he meets Melody, Regina's best friend and Emmet's mother, who also happens to be the school counselor and fill-in coach at Daphne's school.

Goofs

At around 11:25, Ty's truck cranks, but won't start. At about 26:30, he tells Bay that he "can't buy the alternator [he] needs". However, when he is attempting to get the truck started in the earlier scene, the starter is cranking strong, indicating a well charged battery and therefore the alternator would not be at fault. Then, at about 31:40, Ty tells Bay that he "replaced the timing belt in [his] truck", which if broken, would cause a crank-no-start situation. However, the truck that Ty is working on is a third generation Chevrolet CK pickup, in which the engines had a timing chain, not a timing belt. See more »

Quotes

Bay Kennish: You know, if this whole thing hadn't happened there would probably be like seventeen pictures of me on that wall.
Tyler 'Ty' Mendoza: [Scoffs]
Bay Kennish: Really, I'd have my own table; they'd know my order.
Tyler 'Ty' Mendoza: [sighs] They know everyone's order. They only serve tacos.
Bay Kennish: Indulge me. I'm trying to figure out what my life could have been like, Who I might have been.
Tyler 'Ty' Mendoza: Hmm, well you'd probably still be a pain in the ass.
Bay Kennish: Aww, thank you. You're so sweet.
