* TookALevelInKindness: In her guest appearances on her series' spinoff show, ''Hot Bench'', Judge Judy was considerably less snarky and vitrolic than on her own show. She even herself admitted, when deliberating with her colleagues, that she surprised herself at how much of a "softie" she'd become with regard to the case in question.

* CoolOldLady: Usually subverted with Judge Judy, as she often makes jokes about her failure to stay up to date with popular culture. This makes it all the funnier when she gets a pop culture reference right, because it will usually be used in a tongue-in-cheek way and/or with a side question to Byrd: "Did I get that right?"



** A typical Judge Judy reaction to Deadpan Snarker litigants is something along the lines of: "Listen here, fresh mouth, I'm the only one here who makes jokes," or, "Listen. This is not an audition. I already have the job."

* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: The infamous "rocket science" girl is from Alamo, California, a very affluent San Francisco suburb and definitely comes across this way. She doesn't seem to comprehend that a good person would replace a friend's property she damaged accidentally or not respond to a rhetorical question.

* EmphasizeEverything: The OpeningNarration is clear about many things. Such as, "''You'' are about to enter the ''courtroom'' of ''Judge Judith Sheindlin!'' (The ''people'' are ''real''. The ''cases'' are real. The ''rulings'' are ''final''! ((This is ''her'' courtroom!)) This is ''Judge Judy''!"

* RousseauWasRight: There are quite a few cases wherein the people more or less are at an agreement that something needs to be done, they're just trying to figure out who owes how much and what they ''should'' do, and are going to Judy to have her act as an arbiter. ([[MoneyDearBoy and getting a check in the process]])
** One case featured a dog mauling that resulted in the death of a chihuahua. Both the plaintiff and the defendant admitted fault on their parts (Not watching their dogs, not doing enough to prevent digging, not intervening in time), and the plaintiff was trying to keep the defendant from losing ''his'' dogs too. Judy found them both liable for 50/50 of the vet bills, which they both nodded at and agreed to.
** A customer accidentally broke a glass bird bath, and paid for it. However, the owner wanted her to pay more (the sticker price) rather than the cost of the supplies (Which they both agreed to). The mother went on the show to prove a point about honesty to her kids.

*** In the 06/30/2017 case, the judge actually responded to a plaintiff who kept ignoring her requests not to introduce hearsay as evidence by cutting her off and dismissing her case right then and there.
