* In "Honor", Stillman shames Ken for having impersonated Carl's identity as a Vietnam War veteran, especially when the latter had actually been suffering in a prison camp for years. Stillman spares him no harsh words about how ''wrong'' it is to lie about being a P.O.W.

* In "8:03", [[spoiler: Madison's killer, a SmugSnake who dealt drugs in his youth, continues acting cool as a cucumber when Lily and Scotty confront him. Evidence points to him, especially since he identified [[INeverSaidItWasPoison the gun he purchased from Skill]]. But the true crowning moment of awesome comes when Scotty ''only'' threatens the killer, and the killer turns [[DirtyCoward coward]] and promises to spill his guts.]]

* The ending montage of "Discretions", [[spoilers: when the two real killers of a college girl are caught in a stake-out. If they had any doubts they'd ever be arrested, those doubts practically ''evaporate'' the second those cops show up.]]

* The end of "The Road." Lilly refuses to take the bait when the exceedingly loathsome doer attempts to [[SuicideByCop provoke her into killing him]], as had happened with George Marks three years prior, and instead makes the arrest by the book. The last we see of him, he's being shoved into a tiny, cramped cell - and he just happens to be claustrophobic. For bonus points, it's discovered his most recent victim is actually still alive, and she is rescued and reunited with her fiancé, [[HeartwarmingMoments who had never stopped loving her even with the rest of the world believing she was dead]].

* Near the ending of "Gleen", [[spoiler: When Lily and Vera confront the killer. Instead of letting him listen in on his daughter's conversation with his would-be fiancée, he's forced to stay out. It's barely seconds before he's stewing in frustration, revealing his weakness as a ControlFreak. Lily and Vera imply a ReasonWhyYouSuckSpeech about how the killer controls his wives instead of letting them lead their own lives. Just when he's a split second from "[[WouldHitAGirl teaching a lesson]]" to Lily, she calmly drops an ArmorPiercingQuestion about how his wife's flasher was a convenient scapegoat. This leaves the killer speechless, unable to deny what an overall weak person he is.]]

** Before that, the foreman only got the wife to submit to servicing him because he had her husband at gunpoint. Even though she's still a princess in her mind, [[OOCIsSeriousBussiness she nonetheless surrenders her pride and dignity]] to save her beloved husband. She barely begins when the husband makes up his mind to fight the gun out of the foreman's hand. [[ForegoneConclusion It doesn't end well.]] Still, he was willing to sacrifice his own life to protect the woman who's always been a princess to him. He may have married into royalty, but the husband has the heart and soul of a brave prince.

--> '''Lily Rush:''' I'm not like the girls you're used to, Todd. You can't try to charm me, then when that doesn't work, talk down to me. Then when ''that'' doesn't work, get aggressive. I'm not Jill, or Melany. [[IAmNoun I'm the police Headquarters]], you moron.
