These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.

Fridge Brilliance: After Von Bulow meets Dershowitz's team for the first time, they all go to a Dim Sum restaurant (I think; instead of waiters passing the food around on carts, it's all on a revolving cart on the table itself). Von Bulow is looking for the plate of prawns, which he's fond of, but as the students pepper Von Bulow with questions, they take the prawns one by one until the plate is empty. This is a small detail, but along with all the questions, this is the students' way of showing Von Bulow they're not intimidated by him (which is why Von Bulow moans at one point, "Alan, do they all want to be prosecutors?").note He then orders his own plate of ginger prawns.
Hey, It's That Guy!: Maryanne Thorpe is Claus Von Bulow's current girlfriend, and Elaine Dickinson is his former mistress.note Admit it— how many of you were expecting the mistress to say "And I used to sit on his face and wiggle" during the testimony?
