Other mistake: While Nisi and Mickey are in the kitchen, when Isaac and Manley walk in, on the counter is a box of instant grits with tape covering its brand name (Quaker) and a bit of tape covering the face of the company logo. Then when Mr. Blakemore takes out the ice cream there's tape covering its brand name as well.
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.
Question: Mr. B knew Nici wasn't Lily's granddaughter because Lily never had children, but how did he know Lily never had children?
