A note with the child, Mary, indicates that it is Holden's, the result of an affair with a recent co-star actress. The baby arrives in Holden's absence—he is in Turkey shooting a movie, leaving Peter and Michael to fend for themselves in taking care of the child, something in which their lack of experience befuddles them.
.At one point, Peter and Michael are mistakenly led to believe that they are to deliver Mary to two men who arrive at their door asking for "the package". They discover moments before their departure that the men are drug dealers who were actually seeking a package of heroin.^ Well, who were those two men I saw you talking to?

The most common version of this rumor was that a nine-year-old boy committed suicide with a shotgun there, explaining why the house was vacant because the grieving family left. This notion was discussed on the first episode of TV Land: Myths and Legends in January 2007[4] and was referenced on an episode of Family Guy, and in "Hollywood Babylon", a second season episode of the TV series Supernatural. A variation of the legend states that the ghost was Eric Clapton's son Conor, who died of a fall from a 53rd story window in 1991, four years after the movie was released. .The variation states that Clapton allowed the movie to be filmed in his New York City condominium.^ Now, with the release of the movie's sequel, Three Men and a Little Lady, rentals of the first film are up—and the spectral talc has been given a new life.

Snopes contends that the figure in the first scene looks smaller from its appearance in the latter scene because of the distance and angle of the shot, and because the curtains obscure its outstretched arms. .As for the contention that a boy died in the house, all the indoor scenes in the film were shot on a Toronto soundstage, and no residential dwellings were used for interior filming.^ Also, there is no way a little boy could have shot himself in that appartment because it was not even an apartment it was a set in a studio.
