* DA Adam Schiff was everyone's favorite curmudgeon, but in "Jeopardy", he gets his own Awesome Moment. An old law school friend of his - who is now a judge - throws out a triple-murder case against the son of a wealthy family, and when Schiff orders an investigation of the judge's finances, the police and the DA's office discover the family matriarch secured a favorable loan for the judge to keep him from being financially ruined. Schiff personally goes down to the 27th Precinct, walks into the interrogation room where the judge is being questioned, ''tells the cops to turn off the audio pickup'', and then proceeds to quietly ask the judge why he did it. The judge says his wife left him and was cleaning him out in the divorce, and the bribe was too good to resist - and he also claims claims [=McCoy=] would've lost the case anyway. Schiff, disgusted, tells him it shouldn't have mattered - he's going to tell the police everything, and then spend a very long time in prison.
*** As a side note, another [=MoA=] for Schiff was walking into the interrogation room and, with just a ''look'', gets Jack and the cops to leave.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
