* All of "Mirror Ball", really. That is one fantastic episode.

* All of "Mirror Ball", really. That is Rudolf Farthingale, a very ordinary man who worked for the IRS, wanted a more exciting life. So what did he do? He took on two completely different personas- one fantastic episode.physical, one mental- and decided to find a bomber that nobody else could, and not only did he find the guy, he kept up his personas to the point that not only was he married to two different women for years and neither of them had a clue that he wasn't who he said he was, at least one of his coworkers had no idea that he wasn't just a shy, ordinary man doing his job.

* In "Re-Entry", they bust through a door and find a bunch of geeks gathered around a solid yellow cube. Reese, Crews and the HAZMAT guy don't know what it is, so Crews cuts a corner off, puts it on the ground outside and sets fire to it. It makes a column of white flames that goes up to the sky… [[spoilers: ''Solid rocket fuel!'']]

* The scene in "Powerless" where after Dani gives the bad guy the "My life sucks way more than yours ever did, so don't you talk to me about that" speech, Crews and Stark are chatting, about to bust down the door, the bad guy looks away for a second and Dani [[spoiler: picks up the empty vodka bottle and ''hits the bad guy over the head with it.''

* The scene in "Powerless" where after Dani gives Dani, who's being held hostage, is forced to drink one of the biggest bottles of vodka you'll ever see. She's still lucid enough to give the bad guy the "My life sucks way more than yours ever did, so don't you talk to me about that" a ShutUpHannibal speech, Crews and Stark are chatting, about to bust down the door, the bad guy when he looks away for a second as Crews and Stark are about to [[BigDamnHeroes bust down the door]], Dani [[spoiler: picks up the empty vodka bottle and ''hits the bad guy over the head with it.''

* Ted gets one when he's sent to prison... by teaching the inmates about financial planning. One of the prisoners says he owes him a beating, to which Ted's "bodyguards" (sent by Crews to protect him) object. Ted holds them back... and takes the guy on, knowing he'll lose. He does, but keeps his dignity.



* Season two finale: [[spoiler: Crews kills Roman with his bare hands in a car full of armed bodyguards. And then he convinces the guards to throw in with him by simple logic.]]
** This requires some elaboration; [[spoiler: first he asked Roman if he knew how Crews lasted twelve years in prison.]]
--->[[spoiler:'''Roman(laughing)''': "Zen?"\\
'''Crews''': No. (crushes Roman's larynx with one punch)]]
---> [[spoiler:Crews then calmly explains to the bodyguards, while Roman slowly asphyxiates in the seat beside hime, that anything and everything that Roman might have done to their families for failing him, died with him. Crews more or less walks out of the car and the bodyguards proceed to torch Roman's body and the car. Crews being Crews had also arranged for the whole matter to take place in an orchard he owned (not that anyone would really miss Roman).]]

* Charlie's roommate Ted, a physically unimpressive white-collar criminal who was nearly killed during his first stint in prison, is locked up again as a threat to Charlie. The first time another inmate tries to attack Ted, he discovers that Ted is under the protection of two of the biggest guys on the cell block thanks to Charlie's intervention.
