"From your mouth to Judge Judy's ears."

She realized it was no joke after seven or eight minutes when Judy called her.

"Fine, It's You.

When she turned around, there was a man all dressed in white screaming out loud after she said she was. 

Then after clicking photographs together, she was walking on the plane when one of the women turned around her and asked her if her question would not bother her.
