* Michael's BadassBoast to Rebecca in "Split Decision."
-->'''Michael''': Until he met me, Anson Fullerton was running an international conspiracy with hundreds of operatives and billions of dollars. And then I swore to take him down. Now, he's off hiding in some spider-hole under an assumed name, and you're all he has left. So you go ask him if I keep my promises!

** Michael knocking out a Russian security specialist with nothing but a wet towel, a couple of rocks, and some vicious hand-to-hand skills.



* The kidnapped tech in "Necessary Evil" jamming his own hand into a lit Bunsen burner to give Sam and Jesse a reason to stick around and rescue him and his daughter, and then continually telling the warlord holding him and his daughter hostage bald-faced lies with no training whatsoever.



-->'''Riley''': These people aren't your family, Jesse.

* An OffscreenMomentOfAwesome for a villain in 4x03, "Made Man." Team Westen needs to bring down a mob boss named Tony, so they convince the boss they've got an army to back him up, so he goes after his rival Gio. They ambush the rival's car, and Tony gets out and confronts Gio and three of his bodyguards. Midway through the confrontation, the "army" packs up and drives off, leaving Tony standing there alone facing down four men with guns and strong opinions. The scene ends with [[BolivianArmyEnding Tony raising his weapon and opening fire in a blaze of enraged defiance.]] And at the end of the episode, it is said that Tony was arrested for killing Gio, meaning that he ''survived'' a gunfight with four armed opponents by himself with no vehicle, backup, or cover.



* Natalie the thief finally getting caught.
-->'''Fiona''': Clean yourself up. You look like hell.

-->'''Michael''': You never heard of me because I've never been caught. I've never been caught because I'm careful. That means if a junkie loser comes to me with a deal, I'm smart enough to kill him before he starts jawing off. Just like when a dirty cop comes to me with a deal, that dirty cop doesn't get to walk away! ("Tosses lighter into a ring of gasoline, surrounding the pair within a wall of fire.")

** Really, the only downside to this and other incredibly cool scenes the team put on during the course of a job, is that, as Michael states later in the episode, the stunts sometimes work a little ''too'' well on the mark, rendering them paranoid or awestruck depending on circumstance. Still, you don't want to pass up the opportunity to show off your awseome acting chops while on the job!

-->'''Sam''': Now you listen to me, Lieutenant. For the sake of a good man who was my friend and your brother on the force, ''do not make me ask you again.''
-->'''Lt. Briggs''': I'll have you crucified for this.
-->'''Sam''': When this is done, if you feel the need to crucify me I will climb up on that cross myself. But please, don't do it until after we visit Kevin's house.

Added DiffLines:

** In the other plot of the same episode, Fiona gets herself kidnapped with a high-society woman and talks the kidnappers into giving her everything she needs to escape, involving [[NoodleImplements a light bulb, some vodka, and a stick of chewing gum]] to get the drop on the lead kidnapper. Bonus points for Sam bursting in and taking out the man's backup by smashing him through a wall. It's wrapped up with Michael managing to bluff the kidnappers into a corner with a fake bomb and ''forcing them to call the cops on themselves.''
