In this episode there appears to be a subtle dig at a network rival of ABC's. The name of a bar on a street is Paley's, which might have been taken after William S. Paley, president of network rival CBS.
Gower: (to Allie) There's enough guilt in the world as it is. You don't have to manufacture anymore.
Allie: Joe, I can't pay you the $200 on time.
Garfield: $280, you bum.
Rosie: (to Allie) You better pay. You don't wanna get ole Luther mad.
Allie: Don't call me a bum.
Garfield: We'll call you a bum. We'll come lookin' for you in thirteen days. We'll call you worse.
Carol: Now look, Allie, I'm having a baby and that's all I can handle. You're the man, you handle the rest.
Rosie (after the alarm goes off): That bum sold us out!
