* MaintainTheLie: A double version in "Dead Drop." Morales comes to a crime scene with his father, a retired detective from Uruguay who speaks little English. Morales has been making his dad think he has far more authority with the team and begs them to play along so they spend the episode with Morales sitting in on things as if he's always been mostly in charge. At the end of the episode, Mr. Morales speaks to Sharon and Provenza, revealing he speaks perfect English. He tells them he figured out the whole thing right away but is happy his son has friends who care enough to do this for him. He asks that they not tell Morales he figured it out, knowing his son will be happier thinking his dad believes him to be a big deal when he's proud of Morales no matter what.

* NoSympathy: Rusty gives his biological father absolutely no sympathy even before he has met the man. Accusing him of abandoning him despite it has been stated (every time he brings this up) that his father never even knew he existed, keeps accusing him that he will abandon him before he has even met him face to face, and calls him out on being late to a meeting despite the fact that he just found out about his son and it wouldn't be easy to just uproot his entire life just to spend time with him. One can almost not hold it against him when he smacks Rusty after he went out of his way to introduce him to his fiancee and her two young daughters and Rusty gives them a BrutalHonesty statement of his history before meeting his dad. [[note]] Rusty told girls not older that 8 that he was a homeless male prostitute.[[/note]] If anything one could say it was the [[WaferThinMint breaking point]].
