"Yep" is not an answer!
Sheindlin quotes
(To a football player) If you lie to me, I'll mop the floor with you worse than anyone who's ever tackled you.
Sheindlin
Why don't you SHUT UP and listen?!




Sheindlin Judith quotes
Judy: [yelling at defendant, who is being sued for bleaching plaintiff's clothes and has just cursed at plaintiff in court] LISTEN TO ME!!! Where do you think you are? You think you're on Springer? [audience laughs] You're NOT! You're NOT! You wanna go to a therapist, go someplace else---
Defendant: No, I don't need a therapist.
Judy: Listen to me!
Defendant: I don't need to see a therapist... [continues trying to talk over Judy]
Judy: Only one person is going to have--only one... judgment for the plaintiff in the amount of $5000! Your counterclaim is dismissed!
Defendant: Excuse me? No! What about my computer? But what about my computer? But what about my computer?
Judy: [getting up to walk off the set] That's all. Your counterclaim is dismissed.
Defendant: ...and you just gonna walk away like that? That don't even make no sense! What about my computer, I don't get no chance to say nothin'...
Judy: [over defendant's continued protests] I told you - I told you: it's my playpen, I have the word. Goodbye, go someplace else!
Sheindlin Judith
Consider yourself having been reasonably humiliated in front of ten million people. Now, without saying another word, turn around, and find the exit. Goodbye.
Judith Sheindlin quotes
Oh, sit down! You're as dumb as he is!
Judith Sheindlin
Try not to be too nervous. I only digest litigants on Thursday.
Sheindlin Judith quotes
Don't be a wise guy in here, sir. There's only one wise person in here - and that's Byrd.
Sheindlin
to a mother who moved her daughter across the country so that the girl's father couldn't see her, because her fiancee was offered a new job: I don't care whether your fiancee was elected President of the United States! You have no right to move your child across the country without [the father's] permission!
Sheindlin Judith
I mean, did you think I was just a fake person here, that they picked out of, you know, that they picked out of a supermarket? Didn't you think that I had any legal experience at all, sir?
Judith Sheindlin
I'm not 25, and I'm not 5'8". But I know when someone is pulling my leg.




Judith Sheindlin quotes
Plaintiff: By the way, Your Honor, you look beautiful.
Judy: Don't go there, Mr. Missry, because it'll be the fastest way for you out the door, sir.
Plaintiff: I'm sorry.
Judy: The fastest way for you out the door.
Judith Sheindlin
Let me tell you something. This is my playpen, and I get the last word.
Sheindlin quotes
You pulled out a gun, and you shot the gun over FLOWERS! Are you a MORON?!! ... You should be hiding under a rock, not acting as plaintiff in a lawsuit!
Sheindlin Judith
You're going to keep your mouth shut until I come to you and ask you a question, then you're going to speak; otherwise Byrd will take you outside until you understand the rules, 'cause here, I'm in charge.
Sheindlin Judith quotes
If you tell the truth, you don't have to have a good memory. If you lie, you're always tripping over your own tie. ("If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything" - Mark Twain)
Judith Sheindlin
to a young woman who was being sued by her aunt for a loan for breast augmentation: And instead of her paying it back every month, you should pay it back every month - certainly you don't go in and get bigger breasts while somebody is sitting there paying back money that they "gave" to you during the course of an emergency! And I don't care if she's harassing you and your family, because quite frankly, you deserve to be harassed! Judgment for the plaintiff in the amount of $3500, that's all.
Judith Sheindlin quotes
NO it wasn't a gift, you FOOL!
Judith Sheindlin
DON'T SPEAK! See how fast I can get the smile off your face?
Sheindlin Judith
Judy: Listen to me very carefully, sir. I don't want you to give me the Dumb Routine. Do you know what I'm talking about? If you're dumb, I'll know you're dumb. If you give me the dumb routine, I know it's a dumb routine.
Defendant: Yes, ma'am.
Judy: I know the difference, Mr. Carey. Do you understand that?
Defendant: [grinning] Yes, ma'am.
Judy: Okay, very good. Now we understand each other, sir. Believe me, by the time this is over you're not gonna be smiling.
