When Paddy tells Tommy that he'll leave the coffee out until 0500 hours (5:00am), a digital alarm clock in the background reveals that the time is already 5:23am. Paddy may have been speaking in reference to future awakenings but this doesn't sound like the case, however, Paddy says that climbing the stairs hurts his knees and so it's likely he doesn't go up there often, thus, the clock may still be set on summertime.
