  • Korsak in "Remember Me" holding Jane as she finally lets out the repressed fear and pain Hoyt inflicted on her.
  • Jane and Maura's entire friendship and how they only stay mad at each other for a couple of episodes before making up with a hug and saying "I missed you" to each other.
  • Jane telling Angela she does have a doctor in the family.
  • Frost's mother visits town to tell him she getting a woman. Before she can tell him he notices the engagement ring and toasts her, revealing he's known for years and had just been waiting for her to tell him.

  • Two for "No One Mourns The Wicked". First, the end scene where the gang is all sharing a drink on Korsak's porch after they'd just saved Korsak from a pair of serial killers. They all look so comfortable in each other's company, despite the terror from earlier in the day at that same house. The second is that when the episode aired, it was dedicated to the memory of Lee Thompson Young, who played Det. Barry Frost. Because, while "No One Mourns the Wicked", it is quite clear from the statements of the cast and crew that he will be missed.
  • Tommy hires a lawyer everyone else seems to consider comparable to hiring Lionel Hutz to help him get a settlement from the parking garage collapse of the Season Three finale. At the end of the episode, it turns out he won the settlement - and used the money to pay off Angela's IRS debt.

  • Rondo does his normal thing, where he gets Jane to give him more money than she originally did. Then he gives it to the homeless Vet with PTSD.
  • Doubles as a tearjerker: every time Jane interacts with a surviving victim, particularly a young woman or a child, shows us that underneath the brusque exterior beats a genuinely kind and compassionate heart:
    • When the team finally recovers Mandy Mateo in "Brown-Eyed Girl," Jane instinctively holsters her weapon and rushes to comfort the terrified girl.
    • How tenderly she treats the injured teenage sex-trafficking survivor in "Cuts Like a Knife," soothing and comforting her even though they don't even speak the same language.
    • Her interaction with the badly-injured, barely-alive rape victim in "Sailor Man," gently comforting her without pressing her for details about what she had been through.
