Marlon and Shawn Wayans in "Little Man" (supplied)

The defense's cross examination of the alleged victim's best friend, Simha Jamison, didn't seem to do Kelly much good. But it did provide a handful of memorable moments.

Defense attorney Sam Adam Jr. did manage to get Jamison to agree that there was nothing wrong in Kelly giving the alleged victim cash on a series of occasions. Jamison herself said Kelly had given her $100 cash for her birthday.

But in a series of lighter moments, Jamison's answers provoked laughter from just about everyone in the courtroom.

Adam, in an attempt to suggest that Kelly's head could have been superimposed onto somebody else's body in the sex tape, asked Jamison whether she had seen the Wayans brothers' movie "Little Man."

He said, "They put the head of Marlon Wayans on a midget and it looked real, didn't it?"

But, to widespead laughter, Jamison replied, "Not really!"

A few minutes later, Adam showed Jamison a picture of Kelly's back, asking her whether she recognized it. She said she did not. When Adam then asked if she recognised Kelly's back on the sex tape, she replied, "I didn't recognize it as being his back, but his head was attached to it!"

Adam then asked her if she could see the mole on Kelly's back in the photo.

"It doesn't look like a mole," she said, "A cancerous mole, maybe."

Even Kelly laughed at that.
