Added DiffLines:

* BaldOfAwesome: Bull Shannon. In an early episode, a man whose toupee was stolen is on the phone with a wig company trying to order a new toupee. Bull gets him to reconsider;
-->'''Bull''': Don't be an idiot. This (runs his finger over his bald head) drives women wild!


Added DiffLines:

* SubvertedCatchphrase: Bull in one early episode:
-->'''Bull''': All rise, Criminal Court Part 2 is now in session, the Honorable Judge Harold T. Stone--running things.\\
'''Harry''': (looks at Bull) Running things?\\
'''Bull''': I'm on a variety kick.

** Any time that Mel Torme guest-starred he and Judge Stone would spend the entire episode managing to (unintentionally) avoid each other.

** Any time that Mel Torme guest-starred he and Judge Stone would spend the entire episode managing to (unintentionally) avoid each other. Almost as often, Mel would be accidentally abused in some way while at the courthouse, causing him to dislike Harry, his biggest fan.

Added DiffLines:

** Could actually be justified. Harry often spends more time than other judges would trying to get to the bottom of a problem, helping the involved parties come to a mutually agreeable solution/working through their issues, which slows down the courtroom, meaning cases can get built up to the point that they get dinged by their "managers" for having too much of a backlog, and have to work fast to clear it.

* GeniusBruiser: Bull Shannon, in the earlier seasons, when his character was meant to look like dumb muscle but was actually quite well-read and insightful. One episode even had his intelligence being discovered by a group of research scientist who recruit him to help in their work...until he reveals that he hates doing research full time, loves being a bailiff, and goes back to his old job (but still helps them out on occasion).

** Although this is a milder form than the TropeNamer, as personnel could be plausible transferred to different courts or shifts without warning or later comment.
** Happened with an actual brother in the pilot, where Harry made reference to a baby brother who was never seen or referenced again in the entire run of the show and whose existence would probably muck up or at-least complicate emerging details about Harry's backstory.
