There are exactly 4 episodes in which the girls appear together, but otherwise they split up the roles fairly evenly. For example, if one got an ice-cream eating scene in one episode, the other would get a cake-eating scene in the next, etc. Ashley Olsen was used more for the serious roles, like when Papouli died, or whenever the character needed to cry or be serious. Mary-Kate Olsen was used more for the comedy. In the first few episodes of the first season, however, Ashley Olsen was used to play Michelle. Mary-Kate only began the character one time when Ashley was sick. From then on, they shared the role.
