Legally Blonde

Question: What the heck was Enid talking about with Warner at the party?

Answer: She was talking about the word "semester." Since it is similar to the word "semen," Enid says that the word favors males. She wants to change it to "ovester." Since that word is similar to the word "ovary," it would favor females.

Question: In the scene in the library, where Elle gets turned away from Vivian and Warner's study group, she and Enid get into an argument, where Enid remarks, "Like when you called me a d*ke and then voted against me?" to which Elle then accuses Vivian of saying it. What scene are they talking about?

Answer: Enid is accusing Elle of being a stereotypical, snooty sorority girl, like the ones who had obviously been cruel to her in the past.

Answer: It's not a scene in the movie, and presumably didn't actually happen as Elle protests her innocence.

Question: I am aware that this is not a mistake (possibly a deliberate one) but I just had to ask: As Warner is about to say "I want to break up" and Elle thinks he is proposing, she says "I do". Assuming he was going to propose, wouldn't her answer need to be "Yes" in response to "Will you marry me?" which is the proper way to propose?

Answer: It was probably not something to make sense in the movie world but more to make sense to the audience. If she simply said yes it could make it kinda ambiguous and maybe some people wouldn't catch on what she really thought was going on. But the words "I do" are highly associated to marriage so it would make it easy for the audience to know she thought he was proposing.

Answer: Maybe she was getting a little ahead of herself, already picturing the ceremony. It was (supposed to be) the happiest moment of her life, and she might be understandably flustered.

Question: What is the song playing right after the scene where Elle is dressed as a playboy bunny?

Answer: The song is called "Watch Me Shine" by Joanna Pacitti.

Question: Who is Vivian's friend that's always hanging out with her? I don't think her name is ever mentioned in the film.

Answer: I don't recall her name mentioned in the film either, but after a look on IMDB, I believe the actress is Samantha Lemole, who is credited in the movie as 'Claire'.

Question: What reason would Enrique have to lie on the stand? Obviously he wasn't really interested in Brooke in a romantic way. Is it possible he was paid off by Chutney or her mother? And wouldn't he have been in committing perjury after Emmett caught him off guard and made him basically admit that he was gay?

Answer: The answer to your first question is your second question and the answer to your last question is yes.

Answer: In hair terms, a fringe, the piece that hangs in front of your eyes. Seems to be just a US term.

Question: How is Elle able to keep Bruiser with her at Harvard? Last time I checked, pets are not allowed.

Answer: This is a fictional story and whatever the real rules may be at Harvard, they can be changed to fit the movie's plot. In the film, Elle is allowed to have Bruiser.

Revealing mistake: When Elle is talking to Paulette on the cell phone, while waiting for the water, the woman before her goes to the water fountain, and you see her. She doesn't drink any water. She just puts her mouth next to the fountain. It is extremely obvious.

Elle: That's great, Paulette. Is that the only interaction you two have ever had?
Paulette: No! Sometimes I say "okay" instead of "fine."
