The end of Quantum Leap. The show was cancelled mid-season so they had to quickly put it together. In one of the final episodes, it was revealed that Al (Dean Stockwell) had been a POW who had been left in Vietnam. His wife believed he was dead. When he eventually returned to the US years later, she had married someone else. Then he joined the Quantum Leap project. Sam (Scott Bakula) jumped back in time and visited Al's wife, informing her that he was still alive and to wait for him. It was horribly, horribly sad because in doing so, it meant that Al never joined the Leap project and they never met, were friends, etc.

Sam also realized that his leaps were not random and that he was controlling them. The final screen was a message that he never returned home.

Please say how "Jurassic Bark", the "Futurama" episode featuring Fry's fossilized dog always makes them tear up, but it never moved me. However, there were other episodes which always get me misty-eyed.

"Leela's Homeworld", where she discovers her history.

"Luck of the Fryrish", Fry is determined to get revenge on his long-dead brother who he believes stole his name.

"The Sting", Leela thinks she's going mad after Fry dies trying to save her. "Wake up. Please, just wake up" always gets me for some reason.

I wish I could find Valerie's scene from season 1 of The Comeback where she's describing her high school years on her soccer team (I think) to Jane, the documentarian. She developed scoliosis (I think) and had to wear a wire back brace--and her HS teammates wouldn't allow her in the yearbook photo because of it. She starts to cry telling the story, but doesn't want to be filmed that way, so she flees the scene.

It's incredible work from Kudrow. Naturalistic and heartbreaking.

Brendan Frasier's death on Scrubs (handled over two episodes).

The character appeared on two previous episodes of the series as Dr. Cox's ex-brother-in-law & best friend Ben.

It's been years since I saw the episode, but IIRC you're led to believe that everything was going to be fine with Ben, who had been in remission but hadn't been following-up on his own well-being.

And then - BAM - you find out that he in fact died, and what you had been watching was a depiction of the very warm feelings (to the point of seeming almost romantic) Cox felt toward his best buddy.

The moment you learn he's dead felt like a sucker punch.

The O.C. finale is a great one. I remember sobbing like crazy during it. I'm not sure why, but seeing Julie go back to college and graduated with her family in the audience made me blubber like a baby. I loved her character arc from spoiled rich housewife to poor trailer trash to victorious again. I loved that song they used, too. That entire show took me by surprised. I watched it at least 5 years after it had been off the air expecting a cheesy teen soap, but it gave the adults a lot of great material, too.

I remember 2 moments on Nip/Tuck that got me - 1.) Sean saying goodbye to his lover, Megan, as she kills herself with "Rocketman" in the background. So heartbreaking. 2.) the season two finale set to "All I Know."

Not Penny's Boat

From obscure show Book of Daniel, Anglican priest (Aiden Quinn) who lost one of his twin sons (played by Christian Campbell) imagines Jesus (Garrettsville Dillahunt) comes to him to talk to him. After several great episodes, Campbell's character is injured and close to death, and while Quinn struggles, Jesus appears for the first time to comfort Campbell, clearly for the first time not in Quinn's imagination.

St. Elsewhere: Jack Morrison has lost his wife Nina, been raped in prison, found out his best friend was a serial rapist, nearly lost his job, and loses his child Pete in apparent kidnapping. Everyone is sure Pete us dead, and Jack is called, presumably to identify Pete's body, but instead the police return Pete safe. And when Jack sees Pete he says softly not "Pete," but, "Oh, Nina."

This finale of MASH was dull for the most part, but I do agree it had some tear inducing moments. Like when Charles finds out the group of Korean musicians he'd been trying to teach a classical piece have all been killed. Colonel Potter saying goodbye to his horse Sophie. And the ending where the whole cast gradually leaves the 4077 for the last time. I thought the most moving exit was by Potter, who goes off on his beloved horse Sophie, for one last final ride.

I also thought the "Goodbye, Radar" episodes were heart rending. Radar was probably the nicest, most sympathetic character on MASH; it's such a shame that Gary Burghoff decided to leave the show early. It would have been wonderful to have had Radar in the finale episode, going back to his native Iowa after saying goodbye to all his friends at the 4077. But Gary Burghoff was quite a pill, difficult and annoying, so finally he just decided to up and quit. The final "Goodbye, Radar" episode is unbelievably wrenching. Poor Radar; he meets a pretty girl while waiting for transportation back to the 4077 arrives, but their time together is brief because his transportation comes sooner than expected. Getting back to camp he's set upon by everyone because they need him to get a generator for them. He gets word that his Uncle Ed dies, getting him a hardship discharge. Abruptly he seems to go through a complete personality change; sweet, loveable Radar is now bitter, sarcastic, sardonic, humorless. He's "grown up." His going away party is cancelled due to incoming wounded. He's a changed man; as he gets driven away from the 4077 there's not one trace of happiness or anticipation on his face. At the end of the episode B.J. and Hawkeye and Potter find Radar's teddy bear in the swamp, indicating that Radar as they knew him was gone forever. WAH! Anyway, in an episode where they get a letter from Radar he seems back to his old innocent self, that that definitely didn't ring true. At the end of "Goodbye, Radar" it was like Radar had died. And in a real way, he had.

It was a horrific death scene. They turned the volume way up, the panic, helplessness, and terror all seemed so realistic. It was one of the worst deaths on TV, next to Hotlips dog dying on MASH.

It's from one of the later lesser-quality seasons, but Darlene's wedding episode on Roseanne. Dan tells Darlene about some money (or maybe god coins?) he has hidden away and doesn't want her to tell anyone, including David. She tells him they're young and will be fine and have plenty of time to have the things they want. Dan goes off on her, telling her that's what everyone thinks, that they have so much time but they done. He then confesses that he hasn't spoken to his own father for years and his voice breaks. And then later he has the heart attack.

John Goodman absolutely nailed that episode and it was a great example of how even when the show when to shit, he never half-assed it.

When Abby gave birth to Joe on ER and had an abruption that required a hysterectomy, which obviously prevented her from having anymore kids. Luca, her baby daddy who previously lost his wife and children in Croatia, had to hold in a well of emotion as she asked him if he would be "okay with only having one". He proceeded to tear up and then walk off to the bathroom and trash the mirror with a garbage can. It was incredible acting by Maura Tierney and Goran V. Nobody died and in fact a new character was born, but the stress and Agony that the whole situation had put them through just brought me to tears. It was Abby's first child and it would be Lucas last, all because a gunman had shot up the ER.

I know this board is not in any way pro-trans but one of the stories they did was about an FTM trans person and it was excellent. The baseball player one, though, is the one that is maybe the best, because I think it was the first.

One of the things I liked about Cold Case is that the audience was given insight into the victims' lives and the events leading up to their murders. However, in many episodes it was heartbreaking to watch the death scenes and the motives of the killers. The gay centered episodes were haunting. One episode that almost made me cry was the one where it was revealed that a deceased cop was actually a wife beater and he killed one of his twin daughters.

One of mine is weird -- It was the finale of the Stars series "Spartacus". Being an idiot I didn't know he was an actual historical character, so I was already oblivious. Anyway, from the episode description I got the idea that they (Gladiators) were going to be victorious in their final battle. So I was figuring on a happy ending.

Well... when Spartacus was killed I absolutely lost it. I mean big, loud, sobbing tears at his death. I thought of how great he was and all the good he did and how decent and kind he was. I was a mess. I still wonder what was going on with me that I had such a strong reaction.

I also had a tough time when James died on the original "Upstairs, Downstairs". Again, the decency of the character, all the shit he went through etc. Also, suicides usually get to me anyway because you know of the complete desolation that person has gone through.

For some reason, "Call the Midwife" makes me cry a lot. I don't know what it is but I think I've cried to that show more (consistently) than any other.

When Grey's Anatomy's Dr. Thomas (When Christina was working at the hospital in Minnesota) keels over in the ER. That actor did the best dying of a stroke or heart attack I've ever seen. I've seen it happen suddenly like that to people in real life. The way the actors eyes looked and the way that his mouth was hanging open was so real. Most people don't die or go unconscious or even sleep with their mouths tightly closed, even though most actors do it that way, I guess because they don't want to look so awful with their mouths hanging open.

Another Little House sad episode, Charles and Caroline finally have a son and Laura gets jealous. The baby dies and Laura thinks it’s her fault, so she runs away and goes to the mountains where God speaks to her in the guise of an old man, Ernest Borgnine I think. Very moving.

The finale of Dawson's Creek when Jen dies. She just seemed to have had a sad life. Bad relationships with parents, outsider bad girl reputation, boyfriends that never stuck around and then she dies.

I think Michelle Williams criticized the show for killing Jen off, saying that they were punishing the bad/slutty girl.

In reality boys wouldn’t be lining up for Joey Potter . She had issues , was a bitch half the time and wasn’t all that hot . Never saw what the fuss was . Jen would be the heartbreaker in reality .

Hmm i don't know. It's not like Katie Holmes was ugly and Joey had a tough childhood. However, i don't understand why her character was so popular and why Dawson/Pacey let her get away with being an asshole the majority of the time. Whenever Dawson would so much as blink at another female she'd start screeching. She needed to get over herself.

"Gunsmoke" has too many weepy moments to mention. God, that show was on a par with "Little House On The Prairie" when it came to characters dying or getting killed. One episode that sticks out in my mind is "Sam McTavish, M. D.'" ""Sam" is a woman doctor (played excellently by Vera Miles) that comes to Dodge to fill in for Doc (the also excellent Milburn Stone) while he's away. He doesn't really have a lot of faith in her (a woman doctor?), nor does anyone else. But she proves herself as good a doctor as any man and when there's an epidemic that's killing animals and starts spreading to human she takes charge of the situation despite the danger it poses. She and Doc come to like each other and even fall in love. But due to her dedication to finding the cause of the killing illness, she contracts it herself and dies. If you want a good cry, watch this episode. It'll break your heart.

I got weepy during an episode of Homicide Hunters, when Joe told the story about a teen girl who'd been brutally murdered and no priest would come wirh him to deliver the news to her family. Apparently, the local parish had some sort of priestly curfew after dark.

Kenda mentioned it to a rabbi, who grabbed a rosary and met him at the family's house. He proceeded to hold a mass for everyone and comforted the parents afterward. He stayed with them for several hours.

I was blown away that he was willing to do this and had a rosary on hand, as well as the knowledge of how to perform the ceremony. You won't find too many Christians willing to administer someone else's religious rites, so his decision struck me as an act of great love.

This thread has reminded me how unappreciated Cold Case is. It's a shame it is still not on DVD. The music rights will be a nightmare; however, considering the show started in the DVD era, it's a little surprising they didn't finalize those contractual details to ensure the show got a release in physical and digital formats.

I used to watch a lot of crime procedural shows like CSI, Law&Order in addition to Cold Case. But, Cold Case was the one procedural show that I would have loved to have on DVD. Whenever I would see CSI, L&0, and NCIS DVDs in stores I never wanted to buy them. Sadly, Cold Case is pretty much forgotten by many because ION stopped showing reruns a couple of years ago.

Queen went on to win the Emmy later. Let's remind ourselves. The Globes awarded Pia Zadora a Best Actress statuette. Now that was tears induced by laughter.

r379, I'm not a big Leo fan but that was some rude shit. What really pissed me off is that Leo had to apologize for the shade look he gave her, which I thought was hilarious.

The first version of ROOTS, when Kizzy is sold for helping her boyfriend escape from the plantation. Toby and Bell are devastated, and Bell begs her slave master and sinks to the floor, pleading for her daughter... Madge Sinclair was a fine actress who deserved the Emmy, but lost out to that old biddy Beulah Bondi for her lame guest spot on THE WALTONS...

R371, that must have been the episode when McMurphy meets up with Dodger in the mid 70s when he has his bus. That is a fantastic episode.

OP, the inter-cutting between time periods and actors makes it a little hard to follow, not seeing the entire episode. But clearly this has touched you emotionally.

We all feel. We all hurt.

Even the assholes who come onto the DL and sling shit at people.

God bless.
