** The coroner featured in "Suicide Box" (not Rodgers). Years earlier, she was given the body of a young man, who since she couldn't determine a cause of death [[TheyJustDidntCare (and really didn't bother to try for one)]], just checked it off as a suicide, which caused his killer to go free [[KarmaHoudini (and never get convicted)]], caused his little brother to grow up angry and vengeful and made him try and kill an officer (as he blamed cops for not solving his brother's murder) and which caused the young man's body [[spoiler: to be [[NightmareFuel shipped overseas as a cadaver whose parts have already been harvested.]]]] And yet, since she was [[SarcasmMode plagued]] with a heavy workload and long hours, we are supposed to feel sorry for ''her.''

Not helping anything is her overall lack of remorse or even responsibility for what happened.

** On the season 8 episode "Baby, It's You" (crossing over with HomicideLifeOnTheStreet) that was RippedFromTheHeadlines from the Jon Benet Ramsey case, they arrested the stalker of a 14 year old model that was raped to death. The stalker misread the name tag of [[JustForFun/JohnMunch a certain visiting Baltimore Homicide detective]] as "Defective Monk." This was in 1997, 5 years before the debut of ''Series/{{Monk}}'' the DefectiveDetective. In case you were wondering, it turned out [[spoiler: that the kid was innocent and the [[ParentalIncest girl's own mother]] was the one who raped and killed her daughter.]]

** Denise Groban, the victim from "DNR", who was left mortally wounded by an assassin hired by her husband. The whole episode entailed her wanting to die instead of living with being a paraplegic or admitting that he was the one who ordered the hit.

** Tory Quinlann, from "Captive". First, he was held captive for five years by a sexual offender who would repeatedly molest him. Then,it's later revealed that before the abduction, his step-father was physically abusive to him and his mother has openly denied it; and it's implied that Tory stayed with his abuser becaue he felt around him than he did his own family. And when his captor brought home a new boy to molest, Tory (who was diagnosed with Stockholm Syndrome) killed the boy because he saw him as "competition". And he is then convicted of second degree murder.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The infamous "Is this because I'm a lesbian?" line is possibly the distilled essence of BLAM: It comes completely from nowhere, It's quite strange when it happens (nothing in the episode had much to do with homosexuality),[[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain and it is never mentioned again by anyone]].

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In "Corruption", where Jamie Ross and a few other detectives investigate a cop's locker, Jamie finds a lingerie catalog, and correctly deduces that a certain code on the catalog means that the cop has ordered from the company multiple times. When the detective suspiciously remarks that Jamie knows so much about the catalog, she points to a certain page - presumably with a scantily dressed model - and says, "I'm wearing '''this''' right now." Cue detective's shocked expression.
