Visible crew/equipment: In the "Roxie" number, just after Roxie sings "that means somebody everyone knows" she goes down a line of mirrors and as she does you can see three crew members with what looks to be a camera in front of the middle one. Their figures are somewhat dark, so it's a bit hard to see, but it's there.

Question: In 'Razzle Dazzle', Billy holds up a hand signal to the judge and he allows his objection. What is the hand signal?

Answer: The shots are actually unrelated. Billy objects, it is sustained, and the prosecuting attorney expresses outrage that he hasn't even asked a question to object to yet. This is meant to humorously demonstrate how effective Billy is as a defense attorney. Then we see Billy cross-examining a witness who claimed to have seen something. Billy holds up three fingers, Razzle Dazzle Billy switches the gesture to a thumb then back to the three fingers, and the witness is unable to state how many fingers Billy is holding up. This indicates her eyesight is poor and therefore her testimony untrustworthy. But the two displays are only related insofar as they occur during the same trial, otherwise they have nothing to do with one another.
