Shortly after Veronica reveals the true nature of her relationship with Liz, Edith says "That don't affect the brain, does it?" The camera angle then changes, and the shadow of the boom mic is visible to the left of Liz's head, then it moves upward and out of the screenshot.
Cousin Liz and Veronica's apartment appears suspiciously similar to the Jeffersons' East Side Condo!
Edith: (to Veronica) It must have been terrible loving somebody and not being able to talk about it.
Archie: People like that teaching our kids, I'm sure God's sittin' up there in judgment!
Edith: Well, sure he is, but he's God; you ain't! Archie, listen, you wouldn't want to be the cause of somebody losin' their job!
Edith: Archie, she's all alone in the world now and she's got no one to take care of her like I have. And she can't help how she feels. And she didn't hurt you, so why should you wanna hurt her? Archie, I can't believe you'd do anything that mean.
