Cantor's quote to Billie Kent was, "Ever heard of Lucy Danzinger?" When she said no, Cantor replied, "The next one won't hear about you, either."
Not sure if you started watching the show from the start, but Lucy was Nucky's showgirl mistress/arm candy in Season One. After he encountered and ultimately set his focus on Margaret (back when she was still Margaret Schroeder), Nucky quickly became bored with Lucy, dropping her altogether in favor of Margaret.
Cantor is upset with Nucky because Nucky selfishly strong-arms Cantor into the male lead role alongside Billie Kent in the "The Naughty Virgin". Cantor - an honest guy who was also working his own way up the showbiz ranks - had a lucrative contract with another show which Nucky effectively forced him to renege on, all because Nucky is now obsessed with Billie.
As Nucky screwed Cantor over, Cantor took a subtle shot at Nucky with the comment about Lucy. It was a little bit of foreshadowing about what may lie in store for Billie.
