Conjoined twins "Abby & Brittany's" romp through Europe was coming to an end, but the trip couldn't wind down without a few more adventures. The girls enjoyed their first cooking class together, and rode a vespa through the city.
While the girls share many major organs, each of them controls one side of their joined body. What's more, they don't have feeling on the side of the body that they don't control -- save for a narrow band of shared sensation in the middle.
Thus, Brittany didn't feel anything while they were shaving chocolate in class. Holding the knife, it was Abby's finger that she'd nicked.
Later, the girls accomplished another first. While they both have driver's licenses, driving through the streets of Rome on a Vespa was a new experience. "We were a little nervous at first, but we got used to it fast," they admitted.
That quote could also describe how people have reacted to first meeting Abby and Brittany: uncertainty followed quickly by the realization that they're just like everybody else. It's something the show tried to emphasize, but will "Abby & Brittany" get the chance to spread its message in a second season? There's no word from TLC yet.

"Abby & Brittany" continues Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
