B.A.P.S.

Question: When the lawyer told Nici that Mr. B. "already knew" she wasn't Lilly's granddaughter, did he know from the first day they showed up or from the day the lawyer came over to tell Mr. B. about what his nephew said about Mickey and Nici?

Answer: He knew right away, because he knew that Lily didn't have any children, so Nici and Mickey could not be Lily's granddaughters.

Question: I know Mr. B left the girls 1 million dollars...how much did he leave Manly? Or did he leave Manly the mansion? And did the lawyer say he left the nephew nothing or zero?

Answer: Mr. B left the girls 100 million dollars. Manly was left with everything at the mansion including the mansion itself. The nephew got nothing.

Nephew got 2 cents.

It's many moons later but I'm glad you answered what Manly received. I was trying to read the lawyers lips but I didn't get Manly. I knew the nephew got zero; good.

Answer: Girls got 100 million dollars.

Answer: Nephew was left with zip.

Question: Mr. B knew Nici wasn't Lily's granddaughter because Lily never had children, but how did he know Lily never had children?

Answer: Since there's no definitive answer given in the movie, here's my guess as to how Mr. Blakemore knew that Lily never had children. The estate where Mr. B lives originally belonged to his parents/family. But his personal interest in creating a successful fabric business is due to his love for Lily, because she's the one who had dreams of becoming a clothing designer. He felt he owed everything to her. So at some point in the past, some years after his forced arranged marriage, and possibly after the passing of his parents/family members who separated him from Lily, Mr. B could have tried to locate Lily, then found out that she had died (childless) and he kept that painful information private, not telling his nephew, who was his last living relative. He tells Nisi that no fortune is worth the loss of a true love, some things are priceless.

Visible crew/equipment: When Nisi and Mickey first walk into the bathroom Mickey asks why there are two toilets, and in the next shot the microphone pops up into view at the bottom of the screen.

Trivia: At the start of the first scene, when Nisi serves the customer she calls Nate, he is played by Rudy Ray Moore, known for the title role in the film "Dolemite," one of the most popular Blaxploitation films of the 70s. After Nate refuses the burned toast, Mickey tells Nisi, "Girl, don't pay him no mind, he thinks he's Dolemite." Also, note the name "N. Townsend" on Nate's uniform patch, which is the last name of the director, Robert Townsend.
