Tired of being left out at Phil and Lil's house, Angelica claims to know which twin is the favorite and which one is the reject. Phil and Lil become suspicious and competetive, and Angelica takes advantage of the situation to become the favorite herself.

- Description from Klasky Csupo


After a talk with Angelica, Phil and Lil begin to wonder which twin is actually their parents' "favorite kid". They conduct a series of tests to find out the answer. Lil has stench pajamas, crib and her bow. And then milk all over his pajamas and bed. Phil has stench pajamas, bed, and Messy Phil. Lil has a big girl bed, now Phil has windy & snowy bed. Angelica takes Phil's & Lil's cookies and that's unfair to eat.
