Bay was raised in a BigFancyHouse by the wealthy John and Kathryn Kennish. Daphne, who went deaf after catching meningitis as a toddler, was raised by single mother Regina Vasquez in a tough neighborhood. Neither girl knew that they weren't biologically related to their families, and in fact didn't know about each other, until Bay requested a DNA test. Once the secret is out, the Kennishes invite the Vasquezes to move in, and the two families start to get to know their "real" daughters. In addition, we have generalized family drama in the form of boy problems, the growing pains of the elder Kennish sibling Toby, and various personality conflicts between the parents.

** In "Ecce Mono," John imagines that Regina came clean about discovering the switch in 1998 but lost custody of the girls due to her drinking. Daphne is raised with the Kennishes, getting an cochlear implant to help her hear and not identifying as Deaf - but is a manipulative brat. Bay is now a studious young woman who falls in her sister's shadow; Toby is still gambling, and Kathryn is having an affair with another man {[[spoiler:Chip Coto]]). The girls grow up thinking that Regina stopped contacting them altogether. [[spoiler: She actually has tried to make contact with them their entire lives, but the Kennishes stash away the letters and presents instead of giving it to the girls. When they find this out and go to find Regina, they instead only find Adrianna; they find out from her that Regina died of drinking on their birthday.]]

** Also the season 3 finale, in which [[spoiler: Bay, Daphne and their friends graduate from Carlton, but learn Carlton will be permanently closed. Then Bay confesses to vandalizing the construction site so that Daphne won't go to jail and ruin her chances of going to medical school, although this means Bay can't move to LA with Emmett.]]

* StopHelpingMe: InUniverse. Emmett gets offended when Bay tries to interpret and defend him.
** Again when Bay [[spoiler: tells Melody about Emmett's desire to drop out of high school]]. And ''again'' when Bay [[spoiler:expresses concern to Cameron over Emmett's well-being, leading to Cameron giving up Emmett's custody to Melody.]] To say that Emmett isn't pleased would be an understatement.
