Patriotic plot: Elle Woods, played by Reese Witherspoon (right), goes to Washington, on behalf of her pup Bruiser. The Harvard law grad takes on the Capitol as an aide for congresswoman Victoria Rudd (Sally Field, left) to work on a bill that will end animal testing.
The towheaded fashionista is joined by her trusty friend and manicurist Paulette (Jennifer Coolidge), who delivers this nationalistic quote when Elle wears her country's colors: "You look like the Fourth of July. It makes me want a hot dog real bad." Watch the clip here.
