Goof: At first, Reggie throws the pack of cigarettes at Becker, but in the next shot she puts it down on the counter.
Reggie says her ex-boyfriend played for the 1991 Florida Marlins. The major league baseball franchise wasn't enshrined until 1993. Becker finds out Reggie lied to him when a patron gives him this information.
Becker: You know what I'm doing right now?
Becker: Giving you the finger.
Jake: John, I'm blind, I'm poor and running a newsstand in the Bronx. God gave me the finger long before you ever did.
(Mr. Schmalem has just finished setting up the chessboard.)
Mr. Schmalem: (to Linda) Hey sweetheart. Tell the doctor I'm ready and I'm white.
Linda: Excuse me sir but the doctor does not discriminate. He takes patients in the order they come in. (to Margaret) I'm sorry you had to hear that.
Becker: Jake, let me give you a little tip. Whatever you do, never ever go to a hospital. You got a problem, throw yourself in front of a train, it's quicker, it's cheaper and it's a hell of a lot less paperwork.
Reggie: (To Becker) My business is none of your business!
Reggie: My father told me you were some hot shot researcher up at Harvard; now you are running a small practice in he Bronx, what are you hiding from?
Becker: I wasn't hiding...you know what Reggie that's none of your business!
Reggie: And I respect that.
