* A small moment in the episode "Navy Blues" during an interview with the suspect, Lt. Blair's, landing training officer. Throughout the episode, Miss Ross has been trying to turn this into a gender issue in regards to the Navy's policies, and gets ruffled when the officer states he wouldn't have qualified Blair if the Navy hadn't ordered him to get female officers through ASAP. She demands to know what he has against female pilots, and he states it's not female pilots, it's ''bad'' pilots. He goes on to say that she had 5 downs- critical mistakes made while flying- where most pilots were permitted only two, and hands them a recording of her training run that he kept [[CrazyPrepared just in case.]] Gutsy, considering the Navy had been going to great lengths to protect Blair earlier and probably would have come after him if they'd known he made it.

* The sleazy, unrepentant rapist from "Release" arrogantly decides to not take Jack's deal on a shorter sentence. Not five seconds later, he gets convicts and begs like a wimp for mercy. This is one of the most satisfying convictions in the series for one of the most assholish of criminals.

** Mrs. Perez, the girl's teacher, testifies on seeing marks on the girl's body that indicated physical abuse. When she is about to leave, she gives just one word to the mother. Just one and it's effect is lasting.

** The judge gives this [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech brutal teardown]] on the two at the end.
--->'''Judge Erdheim:''' As eloquent as your counsel was in your behalf, you are not the victim here, Mrs. Lowenstein. The victim was an innocent 6-year-old girl who couldn't defend herself. On the count of manslaughter in the first degree, the court sentences you to 7-10 years in a women's correctional facility. [to Dr. Lowenstein] As for you, sir, from this seat, I thought I had witnessed every degradation, every monstrosity possible, but you, Doctor, are beyond contempt. You have helped a woman destroy herself. You engineered the tragedy of a little girl's death. But you took pretty good care of yourself, didn't you?

* Season 7, episode 1 gave us Mrs. Rankin, the victim. The first shot is of her pleading with an unseen man, trying to talk him down from killing her. She seems oddly in control of her voice, until he takes her out of the car. At that point, she starts screaming and fighting. Later on, we learn Mrs. Rankin wasn't doing nothing: she carried a tape recorder on her, to record her lectures for the classes she was teaching, and had secretly used it to record her conversation in the car with the killer. The tape recorder was found in her purse where the killer dumped it, but the cassette? ''Found near where she was killed.'' That means she had to have somehow slipped the tape out of the recorder under the killer's nose, then dropped it without him noticing. It's rare we get an awesome victim on the show, but Mrs. Rankin certainly counts.

* In "Profile", the police arrest a man who had been shooting minorities feeling that they got special treatment and had "invaded" his old neighborhood. One of the victims (an elderly black man) survives, and testifies against him. When the defense attorney asks how the victim is so sure his client was the shooter (the shooter always approached from behind, said "Welcome To The Neighborhood", and fired), the victim gives a beautiful response.

** Even earlier than that, when they talk to him first about how he survived: he turned and ran from the guy when the gun came out, where the other victims mostly froze.

* Nora Lewin has many. Despite being an academic she repeatedly proves that those who try to push her around or intimidate her can't and she makes that very clear to them. Like the Judge who tries to make her drop the case against a prominent conductor. She might be the weakest DA but she did prove herself.

* The episode, "For the Defense," is full of them. First, Connie Rubirosa manages to stick it to Marcus Woll while she's being cross examined, then Mike Cutter goads Woll into saying something that makes some previously excluded (and pretty damning) evidence admissible, and finally, when Woll and his attorney seek a plea bargin, a lighter sentence in exchange for his testimony against the hit man he hired, Mike turns it down:
