Number Eight Remsen Drive, Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn,
New York, the residence of the Lane family: Martin,
the managing editor of the New York Chronicle; his
wife, Natalie; their daughter, Patty, a perky, bubble
gum chewing teenager who dug Paul Anka records and
slumber parties; their son Ross; and their glamorous,
intellectual Scottish cousin, Cathy Lane, who is
residing with them until she completes her high
school education and is able to rejoin her father,
Kenneth Lane, a foreign correspondent for the Chronicle.
Stories depict the lives of two pretty high school
girls, sixteen-year-old identical cousins: Patty, the
average American girl, possesses an unquenchable thirst
for life and the ability to complicate matters that
are seemingly uncomplicatable; and Cathy, shy, warm,
and sensitive, possosses a love for the arts, and,
treasuring her European unbringing, sometimes
encounters difficulty as she tries to adjust
to the American way of life.
The girls confused everybody in their middle-class
neighborhood by mischievously switching personalities
at critical moments. Richard was Patty's boyfriend,
a part-time Western Union messenger. Mrs. MacDonald
was the family housekeeper.
Meet Cathy, who's lived most everywhere, From Zanzibar to Barclay Square. But Patty's only seen the sights A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights -- What a crazy pair!
But they're cousins, Identical cousins all the way. One pair of matching bookends, Different as night and day.
Where Cathy adores a minuet, The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette, Our Patty loves to rock and roll, A hot dog makes her lose control -- What a wild duet!
Still, they're cousins, Identical cousins and you'll find, They laugh alike, they walk alike, At times they even talk alike -- You can lose your mind, When cousins are two of a kind.
