YMMV: Reversal Of Fortune
  • 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?").
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Maryanne Thorpe is Claus Von Bulow's current girlfriend, and Elaine Dickinson is his former mistress.note 
  • Memetic Mutation: "You have no idea."
