Cagney mentions a niece in the baby clothes store. Up until a few episodes ago she hadn't had any contact with her only sibling for years. Something must have happened since the end of 'Matinee'.
Harvey Jr: (disappointed that his mother brought home a baby rather than a computer) What's its name?
Mary Beth Lacey: I don't know.
Michael: How about Atari?
Mary Beth Lacey: Better for a boy.
Lacey: I hate to discourage you about a man, but maybe h's the wrong on for you.
Cagney: Maybe everyone's the wrong one for me. Well, it must be me. I mean, if enough people tell you you're drunk, lie down!
Josh: You can't live in the gutter just because you work there.
Cagney: What's that supposed to mean?
Josh: Stop taking it home with you.
Cagney: Where the hell am I supposed to leave it?
Lacey: (talking about the abandoned baby) She's perfect; she just can't hear.
