Season 1 (1982)
Five men, part of a Chinatown gang, rob a bank and get away, but not before Cagney and Lacey manage to shoot at the getaway car. Cagney’s father, Charlie, a retired police officer, involves himself in the accident, as Chinatown was once his beat.
Through a series of leads and through Charlie’s former connections, the two detectives solve the case and catch the gang, although the driver of the getaway car dies as a result of the earlier shoot-out. (It was determined that he was killed by a shot fired by Lacey.)

An elderly man is accused of murdering a member of a street gang, and Cagney and Lacey eventually prove his innocence through the victim’s brother —— but not before Lacey faces her own prejudice against the Latino gang members.

A series of prostitute murders brings Cagney and Lacey to the rescue as undercover decoys. In stalking their prey, they hook up with “Cleo,” a real prostitute, who, they hope, will help them flush out their target.
Under Cleo’s lead they work the Times Square area, meeting all the relevant riff raff: a drunk, a priest, a cigar-chomping fat man, et al. When Cleo is killed by the maniac, the case gets a lot more personal.
Shortly thereafter the murderer appears at the window (they’re all staying at the local fleabag as an undercover set-up) and crashes through. Cagney bags him, along with lots of help from her chums, and all ends well.

He hides out, but the assassin kidnaps his wife. She leads him to her husband, and Cagney and Lacey arrive in time to prevent a killing and arrest the gun-man.

A bag lady is murdered and everyone assumes that the murder has no significance. But Cagney is determined to find out who killed the woman and, more importantly, who the woman is. She doesn’t think anyone should be buried with a number instead of a name.

Cagney and Lacey respond to a call from a worried mother, who fears her young son is missing. Happily, the boy turns out to be late.

After discovering money in the child’s locker, Cagney and Lacey suspect drug involvement. They eventually find the child trapped in a partially demolished house where he had been en route as a drug runner and Cagney makes a dramatic rescue.
Juvenile authorities, acting on Cagney’s initial report, remove the child from his mother’s custody. When the boy, with his mother’s encouragement, helps them to arrest the pusher, Cagney changes her mind and proves instrumental in reuniting mother and child.
Mary Beth, terrified, must confront her own mortality with Harvey and the kids. Again at Cagney’s urging, Lacey is persuaded to go for a second opinion. She discovers that with the malignancy, a lumpectomy will probably be sufficient. The operation is a success.
The 14th Precinct is psyching up for the Sergeant’s exam, and Lacey is forced to miss it because of her operation.

Cagney’s beloved yellow Corvette convertible is stolen, and the only clue is a graffiti “signature.” Obsessed with recovering her car, Cagney learns about street graffiti, which leads her to “El Vengador,” the gang member who stole her car. She then intimidates him into helping her bust the car theft operation.
The video portion of the Sergeant’s exam occupies Isbecki’s thoughts of how he’ll look. Petre thinks about the academic considerations.
Cagney’s fear of the potential loss of her partner almost overshadows the exam, until when facing the video tape she is relieved to learn she is to discuss Grand Theft Auto, a subject on which, thanks to the recent experience with her own Corvette, she has recently become exceptionally knowledgeable.

Albert Grand, jewel thief extraordinaire and past nemesis of Christine Cagney, reappears on the scene when the clues from a major jewel theft lead to members of the 14th Precinct.
Cagney is confronted with a series of Grand’s wild goose chases, coupled with his persistent charm and complicated by a major diamond heist. She discovers the real reason for his crime: a gesture of both triumph and generosity because he is dying. He surrenders to Christine Cagney, the best police officer he’s known on seven continents.

Cagney, despite pressure from the department and even her father, is going through with her complaint against Captain Hennessey (from “Rules of the Game”) for sexual harassment.
Paula Eastman, the last of Cagney’s possible witnesses against Hennessey, admits he offered her a promotion in return for sex, but because he’s following through on his promise, she refuses to testify for Cagney.
As the hearing goes on, Cagney becomes angrier and more frustrated —— Hennessey’s lawyer is doing a good job of making her look like a slut. On the last day of trial, Paula changes her mind, and appears at the trial, ready and willing to testify.

Cagney and Lacey search for a missing teenager who disappeared the night of his prom. Investigation shows he was last seen at a liquor store. When the store owner refused to sell him a bottle based on his fake ID, he tried to steal a bottle.
Because of the age on his phony ID, he is booked into the adult prison at Rikers Island where he is viciously raped by several of the inmates.
Faced with not only bureaucratic reluctance by the NYPD, but also a multi-million dollar lawsuit against New York City, Cagney and Lacey are finally successful at identifying the rapist —— but only after they pressure a successful businessman who had been arrested as a “john” and was a witness to the rape.

When Cagney and Lacey investigate a poorbox robbery, they find a murdered nun and an offer of help from an unexpected source, Quinones, an organized crime boss who, incensed by the killing of a holy woman, offers Cagney and Lacey mob cooperation in their investigation.

Morality versus practicality creates conflict between the detectives and Laceys. Meanwhile, the killer turns himself in rather than face mob retribution.

Season 5 (1985-6)

Cagney and Lacey investigate the beating of a teenage hooker and learn that her pimp had been suspected previously of the bludgeon killing of another young prostitute. When the detectives try to question the young girl she is totally uncooperative.
After a change of mind (more to spite her parents than anything else),she accuses her pimp of beating her and states that she saw him kill the other hooker. That’s enough for Cagney and Lacey until their star witness runs away allowing the pimp to get out on bail. Now Cagney and Lacey have to find the girl before he does and that is made easier for the duo when the girl is promptly picked up for hustling.
The parents, giving up on the girl, decide to have her put away in an institution. Cagney, unwilling to give up on the girl, works out a legal way to keep her out of the institution and out of the custody of her parents. All she has to do is get the girl not to give up on herself.

Cagney and Lacey, working a sting on the street, witness Eduardo Carrera heroically bring down a mugger who’s just robbed an old lady. At Lacey’s urging, Eduardo is awarded a medal for bravery by the Mayor, but is spotted by the Immigration Department as being an illegal alien and picked up for deportation to Chile.
Cagney and Lacey persuade the I.N.S. to let Eddie stay in the U.S. long enough to testify in the mugger’s trial while they try to find a way for him to permanently stay in the U.S. Carrera is so effective as a witness that the case is wrapped up almost immediately and long before Cagney and Lacey can do anything about his status as an illegal alien.
He escapes while being taken back into the custody of the I.N.S., and he and his family disappear from an illegal refugee safe house. Cagney and Lacey go along with the I.N.S. and F.B.I. to check out an address where the Carrera family might be hidden. While checking out the attic, Cagney spots Eddie and his family crouched in an attic crawl—space. After a tense moment, Cagney yells to the F.B.I. “nothing here” and moves on, sparing the Carrera family for at least another day.

Cagney and Lacey are investigating a woman’s disappearance while the woman’s husband and mother, not willing to rely on the police, have hired a well—known psychic, to find her. All clues point to Nora being a runaway wife, but then the case becomes a homicide when the woman’s body is found, seemingly from causes predicted by the psychic.
The psychic’s reading, combined with their own detective work, lead Cagney and Lacey to the murderer, the woman’s husband, who had tried to throw suspicion off himself by making the psychic’s prediction come true.

Almost a year after a lottery drawing, one two million dollar prize remains unclaimed. Then two people suddenly show up with winning tickets. Cagney and Lacey are assigned to investigate and, after some dispute over another suspect (a disreputable bartender once arrested as a con man) they finally discover that one of the tickets had been forged by a retired master engraver for the Post Office.
Case is closed, right? Wrong. Yet another winning ticket is brought in. Although the computer data on the lottery had been “accidentally” dumped, one of the original tickets was verified, but the other “winner” happens to own a cocker spaniel not unlike one owned by the arrested engraver.
This guy “happens” to be a computer expert. After a chase through the Dog Show at Madison Square Garden, Cagney and Lacey bring in the culprit behind it all.

Having earned kudos for the undercover arrest of an illegal drug pusher, Cagney and Lacey go after the pusher’s supplier, Bruce Mansfield, a slippery big-time dealer. During the set-up, Cagney, out of sight of the surveillance equipment, illegally entraps Mansfield.
The dealer is arrested, and the Narcotics Lieutenant in charge of the bust urges Cagney and Lacey to “get their story straight over the weekend.” Lacey is reluctant to lie and Cagney issues her an ultimatum: either back her up -— thus committing perjury or the partnership is over.
Lacey agonizes over the moral dilemma, then finally agrees to back up her partner. When Lacey is unexpectedly called upon to corroborate Cagney’s testimony in the hearing, Cagney herself admits the attempted perjury. Mansfield is free but Cagney and Lacey plan to go after him again, and do it right the next time.


Cagney and Lacey are called in to police a demonstration against abortion outside a woman’s clinic. When a young woman is intimidated by the abuse of the crowd, Lacey sympathizes with the woman’s confusion about her decision to have an abortion.
Cagney’s ambivalence (Catholic upbringing verses a woman’s right to choose)quickly develops into a sore spot between the two women, made more poignant by the revelation that the now happily pregnant Lacey once had a(then illegal)abortion when she was nineteen.
The clinic is bombed, destroying it, and severely injuring a vagrant sheltering near the clinic. When the vagrant dies, the leader of the protest group reluctantly gives Cagney and Lacey a list of the members of the organization. A cross check of files zeroes the investigation in on one of the protesters. When Cagney and Lacey question the suspect, she cracks and threatens to set off another bomb only -- being deterred by the thought of killing Lacey’s five-month fetus.

A young man on trial for assault and mugging, is set free when his mother provides him with a very believable false alibi. Cagney and Lacey are then assigned to another case but when the boy’s father comes forward and volunteers that his son is guilty and his ex-wife perpetually lies to protect him, Cagney and Lacey return to question the woman but cannot persuade her to change her story.
Cagney and Lacey reopen the investigation on an old crime robbery and assault on an elderly Korean man. When the father gives the detectives a gold watch, that his son had left behind with the old man’s name engraved on it, they have the evidence they need to get him off the streets.
Harvey is rather proud of him for defending himself, but Mary Beth feels money isn’t worth fighting over.

Cagney and Lacey investigate the robbery/murder of an old woman living with her daughter, son-in-law Frank, and their twelve—year—old son. The murder is blamed on a cat burglar, but further investigation (and Cagney’s stubbornness) leads Cagney and Lacey reluctantly to believe a family member was responsible.
Suspicion centers first on the son-in-law, but further questioning leads Cagney and Lacey to the chilling conclusion that the murder was actually committed by the woman’s 12 year old grandchild. The pregnant Lacey is so upset by the case that she decides it’s time to go on clerical duty.

Cagney chases and fires on a kid who attempts to rob a grocery in which she is a customer. The owner of the grocery, files a complaint against Cagney, charging her with non—feasance (cowardice). No bullet can be found in the alley to support her story, and Cagney is suspended.
Lacey, temporarily off clerical duty, investigates, with Cagney’s unofficial help, and they uncover the store owner’s record as a “chronic complainer” and his animus for the NYPD.Eventually they track down the teenager, with the bullet wound from Cagney’s shot in his arm. Cagney is reinstated.


When Cagney temporarily takes over control of the squad, she is thrilled until she encounters resistance and hostility from the other detectives. The problems mount, when Knelman forces her to send Lacey home on maternity leave and Cagney must endure this time at the top alone. In a blaze of media glory and departmental kudos, Petrie and Isbecki arrest a notoriously slippery hit—man for the murder of a mob—connected businessman.
Cagney takes the case away from Isbecki when he resists her authority. She doesn’t believe the hit man is guilty and continues the investigation with Newman and Corassa, even in the face of Knelman’s opposition. Cagney tracks down the real murderer, then comes to Lacey for reassurance and validation, and ends up calling Isbecki, so he can make the collar.

With Lacey at home, Cagney and Newman investigate the flake case of the month; the disappearance of some street—corner musicians. They uncover the kidnapper, an old—time jazz great. The musicians had recognized him while he was setting up his revenge on the man who built a recording empire on songs he stole from the jazz great, then married the woman he loved as well.


With Lacey out on maternity leave, Sara Jones, a charming, bright, eager uniform cop, persuades Cagney that she’s just the person to help with Cagney’s mountain of paperwork. Once the papers are out of the way, they start tracking down a brutal repeat rapist.
Sara, with brilliance, intuition, and hard work comes up with the name of the rapist, but no real proof. She starts to spend her evenings following her suspect and harassing him. Cagney begins to worry about Sara, as she is over—stepping the bounds of reason and law in her pursuit of this man.
Checking Sara’s file, Cagney learns she was raped, which explains her determination to get at least one rapist off the streets, even if it costs her career. When she’s ordered off the case, Sara sets herself up as bait for the rapist, and kills him. 

The entire 14th Squad is furious when Patrick Lowell, a Serpico—type character who blew the whistle on some crooked cops, is assigned to the Precinct. Cagney is the most displeased, as with Lacey home on maternity leave, he becomes her temporarily partner.
They investigate a series of teller machine muggings, identifying the driver of the getaway car.
