** Even better is that she actually says it in a dismissive, ''annoyed'' manner, barely even looking at him. This creep has tried to rape her, shot her husband, and is about to kill her, and she's ''irritated'' instead of scared.
*** What makes it brilliant, it's a CallBack to an earlier flashback, to when the female victim said the holes in her stockings and the blisters on her fingers did not exist. She not only refuses to acknowledge the foreman, but she's regarding as little more than a blister or a hole in her stocking. In other words, she just gave the foreman a ReasonWhyYouSuckSpeech in ''just 3 words''.

* At the end of "The Sleepover," a SympatheticMurderer, with Scotty's supervision, has a tearful reunion with his sister in the mental hospital to which he has been committed. When their AbusiveParents (who had, among other things, forced the brother to ''waterboard'' the sister when she disobeyed them) show up, Scotty slams the door to the brother's room in their faces.

Added DiffLines:

* In "Sherry Darlin'", we have James' half-brother who, [[spoiler: while James was away, Sherry tried to seduce. She offered that they could run away to anywhere they wanted. But the half-brother had too much integrity and refused. Oh sure, when he tried to tell James what happened, the latter thought he was lying and [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished hit him with a brick that left a scar]]. But not only does it prove the step-brother has character, it later helps Lily Rush provide evidence of Sherry's [[YourCheatingHeart other husbands]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* At the climax of "Thrill Kill," Lilly gives an absolutely ''terrifying'' BreakingSpeech to the wife of the killer [[spoiler:and mother of the victim, pulling no punches in laying it on how much of a pathetic coward she must be to stand by the man who murdered her only child in cold blood]]. Best part? [[spoiler:It works, and the wife gives up the murder weapon]].

* In "Spiders", the way Spider's hide-out is busted by the detectives and a SWAT team.
** [[spoiler: Lily and Will trick Spider's ex-girlfriend into confessing by simply mentioning a witness saw her helping Spider kill an innocent woman, [[NeverSaidItWasPoison but not that it was nighttime]] when it happened.]]



** Another, smaller one: [[spoiler: In the flashback, when baby Max's abductors read what's sown on the pajamas his real mother made him: "[[ArmorPiercingResponse MY MOMMY LOVES ME]]" It's as though this innocent baby were defiantly telling his abductors "Just you wait, one day, my ''real'' Mommy will find me!" And years later, she does.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Earlier on, when Scotty and Lily confront Mr. Freely in the interrogation room. Lily presents case files on every child he ever worked with. And she tells him that they're on the other side of the window, telling "all about Mr. Freely". ...Only, there's nobody there. But ''he'' doesn't know that. It works, and he spills the beans about what happened to Toya and Rosie.

* Several victims get pretty awesome {{Final Stand}}s against their killers. Examples include "Family 8108," "Devil Music," and "Strange Fruit."

Added DiffLines:

* Meta example: The fact the series, for the most part, did an ''incredibly well'' job with [[TimeShiftedActors casting actors that strongly resembled one another from the past/present.]] Perhaps the best example is the younger Lt. John Stillman, portrayed by Anthony John Crane, looking ''eerily'' similar to the older, present-day Stillman, portrayed by John Finn, which you'll notice if you watch his older work, such as the first season episode of ''Series/LawAndOrder'' "Poison Ivy", where he also played a cop (albeit a [[DirtyCop dirty and racist one]], unlike the decent, ByTheBookCop he portrays here.)
