Bull is a walking zombie at work, and the court staff finds that he has been taking care of a baby for a neighbor who has apparently abandoned him.

Plot Summary

The Night Court staff can't understand why bailiff Bull has been acting like a zombie lately. Turns out that Bull has been losing sleep taking care of a baby which was "temporarily" dropped off at his apartment by a not-so-neighborly neighbor. Once the truth is known, everybody in the courtroom becomes a surrogate mommy or daddy--at least until the end of the episode. D.D. Howard makes the first of two appearances as Charly Tracy, temporary replacement for departed court clerk Lana Wagner (Karen Austin).
