* AdaptationalDumbass: In The Musical, Elle is basically spoonfed what was her big motivational montage in the movie by Emmett, and "Chip On Your Shoulder" frames her success as Emmett's success. She doesn't even give up on Warner until after she gets the internship,

* ShaggyDogStory: Brooke won't reveal the details of her alibi [[spoiler: getting butt liposuction, the knowledge of which she claims would kill her fitness empire]] resulting in a long and convoluted trial that nearly resulted in Elle returning home with her spirit crushed, and Brooke herself nearly sentenced to death for murder. At the end, when Elle proves that [[spoiler: Chutney killed Brooke's husband, Brooke gets lost in the heat of the moment and ecstatically declares that now "no one will need to know I had lipo on my thighs!" - in front of a crowded room of people (including reporters) thus rendering the whole reason for the trial, and everything Elle did to prove her innocent, rather pointless. The Greek Chorus reassure her that they love her anyway.]]
