"The Awakening Conscience"[title 1] is the second episode of the ABC Family's Switched at Birth Season Two, and it is the 32nd episode of the series overall. It was written by Joy Gregory and Bekah Brunsetter, and it was directed by Fred Gerber. It was originally aired on January 14th, 2013.

Plot

Bay convinces John and Kathryn to let her attend Carlton’s pilot program for siblings of deaf students. Angelo tells a livid Regina that he got Lana pregnant. John tells the kids about running for state senate. Toby starts dating Nikki, but much to Toby’s chagrin, Kathryn and Nikki work on a song together for their band. Toby distances himself from Nikki when Emmett shows him a scandalous photo of her online.

Bay bonds with a fellow hearing student, Teo, at Carlton since they are having trouble keeping up with their ASL only classes. With John’s help, Daphne sells tacos at the carwash and makes a ton of money but decides what she really wants to do is help out her old neighborhood. Against John’s advice, she sells her tacos in East Riverside and tells everyone they can pay what they can. Daphne is mortified when she discovers from a local teen from the neighborhood, who works at his Uncle’s restaurant, that she’s taking business away from struggling local businesses. Emmett wants to help Bay fit in at Carlton, but many other deaf students do not welcome Bay or the other hearing students. Regina meets Lana in the elevator at Angelo’s apartment but doesn’t tell Lana who she is.

Quotes

Daphne:: So much of what defines us is just dumb luck. And don't say it's what you do with it that counts.
John: But it is.

Daphne: [to John] Stop helping me! If I make a mess, I'll clean it up myself.
Travis [to Daphne]: Look, not everyone can afford $6 for a taco.
Toby [to Daphne]: I'm in a Christian rock band with my mom. Rehearsal is not a euphemism.

Bay: Emmett, why didn't you tell me I'm such a bad signer?
Emmett: Because you're not.
Bay: Emmett. I'm pretty bad.

Emmett: I understand you.
Regina: I'm sorry. I feel like I've been apologizing for Angelo for a long time and I'm kind of getting tired of it.
