** And the teachers who were at the school that the ex-teacher was planning to shoot up deserve a special mention. One teacher (a math teacher) goes with Lupo and Bernard to confront the crazed man. Why? [[PapaWolf To protect his students]]. And when the trio make it to where the gunman is, another is seen guiding another student on how to stop the bleeding in a student who got shot. {{Cool Teacher}}s indeed.

** Jack's moment wasn't the only Awesome Moment in this episode, though. After [=McCoy=] leaves, ADA Michael Cutter reveals he continued talking with some of the sex workers involved with the original murder investigation -- and found out Shalvoy had kept seeing prostitutes, even after the original stonewalled investigation. In exchange for keeping the information private and letting Shalvoy's reputation stay intact, Cutter asks Shalvoy to resign -- and when Shalvoy tells Cutter [=McCoy=] said he wouldn't have to resign his seat, Cutter replies with a matter-of-fact statement which crushes Salvoy for good: '''"I'm not Jack [=McCoy=]."''' The next scene is of Shalvoy telling the press he's giving up his position in order to support his wife.

--->'''Connie:''' There is nothing imagined about the wrongs of Trina's childhood. Whatever she was in her adult life, she learned from a master. Randall Bailey had a pathological need to abuse his daughter. A need that he finally took to its logical, deadly conclusion. And thanks to a tricked-up claim of self-defense that has been a staple of crime fiction for decades, he thinks he can get away with it. But consider this. 6-foot, 180 pounds vs. 5' 5", 110 pounds. Consider 13 deep, devastating stab wounds vs. 8 pin pricks. Consider what it took to drive this knife through meat and bone into the body of his own daughter. ''(stabs a book with Randall's knife repeatedly)'' Not once. Not twice. But 13 times! This was not paternal love, or instinct! No! It was murderous rage! ''(stabs once more)''
** And before Connie's awesome moment, Cassidy got hers by coolly deflecting the criminal's lawyer accusing the detective of pretending to have seen the defendant stab himself in order to get back at him for his earlier {{jerkass}} moments. This is made even more amazing given how much of impulsive, hot-head she can be.
--->'''Cassidy:''' Mr. Glover, if I really had it in for your client, I could have dropped him with a justifiable shooting when I found him stabbing his own daughter to death. But I didn't, because I exercised the control I learned in my training. That control is why your client is alive today.

--->'''[=McCoy=]:''' "You've had quite a run for someone so long. Exploiting unsuspecting college kids. Taking advantage of their youth, their innocence, their vulnerability. And if they change their minds, to Hell with them! A release is a release! Like it or not, the world is going to see you naked! Unless you pay me. Or screw me. That's a lot of heartache. A lot of ruined lives. And no one could touch you. But now, you are directly responsible for a death. And I intend to make you pay for that. Am I happy? Yes. But it's a side benefit."

** Gets even better at the end when the own criminal's lawyer tells him point-blank to shut up and the lawyer doesn't even bring up asking for a deal for the asshole. Why? Because the lawyer has daughters of his own.

* In "Acid", the egotistical scumbag criminal threw acid in the face of his former girlfriend because she rejected him. He acts quite arrogant about being convicted...up until his victim's sister [[TranquilFury calmly enters into his apartment]] to throw vinegar in his face, which angered him enough to admit his crime. And at one point, she managed to slap him after he called her sister a "slut".

* In "Pledge", the prosecutors are prosecuting a man for murdering a boy, believing the motive was in retaliation for the boy's mother kicking him out of a party thirty years before, thus keeping him away from Susan, the girl who invited him to the party. So Cutter puts a woman named Susan to the stand, who attended the same university as the boy's mother and married a working-class man. This provokes the defendant and confess, in anger, that he killed the boy.
---> Michael Cutter: "For the record, Mr. Lasky? Her maiden name is Susan Laramie. She was at Dartmouth two years after that party. Your Susan was Susan Walden. She was murdered eight years ago in the Bahamas by her trust-fund husband during a drug-fueled argument on their yacht."

* In the controversial Season 1 episode "Life Choice", ADA Ben Stone is prosecuting Rose Schwimmer, a radical pro-life activist who planted a bomb on fellow pro-lifer Mary Donovan (who was going to a clinic have an abortion) in order to turn Donovan into both an unwitting suicide bomber and a martyr for the pro-life movement. When Schwimmer takes the stand, she begins an impassioned rant about Stone putting her on trial and tries to justify her actions by saying she believes bombing abortion clinics to protect unborn children is protecting life. The judge tries to remove Schwimmer from the courtroom, but Stone interjects and receives permission to ask her [[ArmorPiercingQuestion one simple question]]:

** Earlier, Captain Bunker is railing against Stone daring to put him on trial:
-->'''Bunker:''' I have served my country for thirty years! You have no right to judge me!\\
'''Stone:''' I'm not judging you, sir; that's up to your conscience and twelve honest citizens. And I assure you, the latter wil be less generous to you than the former.

* 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.
