Quotes

Christine Cagney: That is one tough lady.
Mary Beth Lacey: I don't understand how she can live with it.
Christine Cagney: Forget it Mary Beth.
Mary Beth Lacey: No, I can't forget it Christine. See, I go home every night and no matter how bad a day it was, I think, well at least we took a little inch of crud off the city. I mean, of course, it'll be back tomorrow, but at least we're treading water. You know what I feel like right now? I feel like the crud is winning.

User Reviews

Harvey Atkin and the actors are the best
24 June 2000 | by (Greenwood,SC) – See all my reviews

It's too bad that Harvey Atkin (Desk Sgt. Ronald Coleman) wasn't invited to the 4 Cagney & Lacey reunion movies. He was a good actor. This show was great and thanks to TNN for showing the reruns of the show.

I like Tyne Daly (Juddging Amy) as Lacey ,and Sharon Gless as Cagney. I like John Karlen(Dark Shadows)he was talented. Martin Kove, Carl Lumbly, and the late Sidney Clue was great.

I was great.

I give it *****.
