> Description 
Patty Lane (played by Duke) was a normal teenager living in the Brooklyn Heights section of New York City, who loved boys, ice cream, and sleepovers. In the first episode, her "identical cousin" Cathy (also played by Duke, in a dual role that challenged special effects on television at the time) came over to the United States from Scotland to live with Patty's family.

Patty's father, Martin (played by William Schallert), was the managing editor of the fictitious New York Chronicle; Cathy's father also worked for the Chronicle as a foreign correspondent. It was Cathy's father's wish that she complete her secondary schooling in the United States before she would be allowed to return to Scotland. Cathy was much more worldly, and the aggravations that came from the two girls' very different personalities set the tone for much of the sitcom. The show's theme song, which has since been parodied many times over in pop culture, illustrates the two girls' differences: Cathy adores the minuet, the Ballet Russe, and crepes suzette, while Patty loved to rock 'n' roll; a hot dog "made her lose control."

Also seen was Patty's mother Natalie (played by Jean Byron) and Patty's brother Ross (played by Paul O'Keefe).
