Why does Morris tell Appolonia that he wishes she could see his home, about his brass waterbed and Italian cook. When at the beginning of the movie it looks like he lives in a shitty ass apartment?

In one scene,Apollonia and Prince have a big fight and he slaps her to the ground.She gets up,takes his earring off and walks away angrily.She presumably walks home....in skimpy lingerie!! nuts I wonder how she got home? Was it even legal to walk around town like that? LOL

Not just that, but how could she possibly have learned her way around a town that she had just moved to? Mapquest wouldn't be available for another 20 some odd years? lol

hey didn't you listen to Uptown & Head? and the Raspberry Beret video?

those 2 songs should help answer that 1st question, and the Prince interview where he says they had to do a lot of nude bike riding to get things stirred up in the city

From what it looks like, they might not have gone too far from the club for her to know her way around or at least walk over to the next main street and hail a cab

Why was The Kid's response to Jill having something for him was to ask if it was a subpeona?

Did anyone else notice that after The Time performed The Bird and were walking to their dressing room that Jesse Johnson repeated himself when he spoke..."you didn't even sweat...you didn't even sweat."??

Why was Apollonia so fascinated with The Kid's parents' drunken foreplay? Why did The Kid even think that was a good moment to "introduce" her to his parents?

How many takes did it take for Apollonia to catch that earring?

Why would Morris sing a song (although, not performed in the movie) that has him saying "If the kid can't make you come..." if The Kid was Prince's character?

Because Prince wrote a song probably intended for his band, probably intended for the erotic barn sex scene called If the Kid Can't Make U Come

And Prince wanted to fill the movie up with tibits of hints from other songs

Yeah his apartment did look shitty lol

And Apollonia's motel room was cheesy

nobody seemed to want to take anyone home

not even the Kid

I just had a question about why would it be Morris' song instead of The Kid's.

lol he couldn't leave his cab to chase after her, and since he James French worked for Prince in real life he probably knew he could get that money later

uhhhhhh SoulAlive, I thought you understood, Uptown-Erotic City- ??

Plus she was obviously drunk from the afterpart at the Taste,

I Would Die 4 U just came on the radio at work

EXT. BACK ALLEY, THE TASTE -- NIGHT

Morris and Vanity stagger down the ALLEY
obviously very drunk. Morris pulls from
a FLASK. Vanity is still in her
lingerie, wears an open coat over it.
Her speech is slurred--

VANITY
Did you hear these people
applauding? They loved us --
they wanted to rip us apart,
and this is just our first
night. I can see it now,
we're all going to be big
stars. I can feel it.

Because that character´s name was supposed to be "Nikki" in the original script, and to be played by Vanity.

Did Lisa know her nipples were showing during the argument with the Kid?

Why wouldn’t a man attempt suicide after seeing his son wear ruffled shirts and high heels every day?

Did Billy need more fiber in his diet?

Did the preserves in the jars in the basement taste like Smuckers?

Could the whole argument thing been avoided if Kid didn’t eat Dad’s Doritos?
