* Works for Elle Woods in ''Film/LegallyBlonde'', although she doesn't initially suspect the witness (the daughter of the murder victim). Elle only realizes that something's up when the victim's daughter claims that on the morning her father (the victim) was killed, she had gone out to get a perm and then came home and took a shower--Elle, being a [[TheFashionista fashion-and-beauty expert]], [[TruthInTelevision knows you should wait at least 24-hours to get your hair wet after getting it permed]]. After pointing out this little tidbit to the rest of the court (as well as using an example of when a sorority sister of hers had made the mistake of getting her hair wet to soon after getting it permed), Elle performs an aggressive cross-examination, which eventually gets the witness to confess that she's the true murderer. [[spoiler:The girl further confesses that she was actually trying to shoot her stepmother, largely because she resented the fact that her father married someone the same age as her.]]

** {{Subverted}} and {{parodied}} when Mayor Quimbys' nephew is on trial for assault. Firstly, the jury thinks he is guilty (though he isn't) because he is a {{jerkass}} with a HairTriggerTemper who at one point is provoked into ranting that ''he'll kill everyone in the courtroom''; second, the guy who provoked him was ''his own lawyer'' who was trying to show that he was ''not'' a {{jerkass}} with a violent temper by asking him an innocent question that turned out to be Quimby Jrs.
