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.

"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.

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.

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.

[quote]Highway to Heaven usually could make me cry.
I remember my mom crying to some of those episodes. That show was corny, but there were several episodes that I really enjoyed. I have recently watched several episodes on YouTube and Amazon Prime recently. I think if many hardcore conservative Christians watched Highway to Heaven today they would hate it. The show was very pro-immigrant, anti-racist, and there was an episode that encouraged accepting non-Christians in the world.

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."

[Quote] 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.

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.

The ASPCA commercials and the St Jude commercials. The commercial about “almost helping” and “Matter”. There was also a recent one about a medical research facility doing groundbreaking research, that showed a cancer cell being destroyed and all the medicine patients take being added to the screen with stop motion, then followed by photos of cancer patients. Very moving.

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.

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.

When the Maria and the rest of the Sesame Street gang have to explain to Big Bird that Mr Hooper isn’t ever coming back. It was moving but very well done because the writers chose to have Big Bird be confused and ask lots of questions, the way a child would. I think it was much better than if they portrayed Big Bird collapsing into tears and sobs. The other characters were obviously trying to hold it together, it must have been an awful day on the set.

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.

"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.

I also lost it when the film told about how the Reed family managed to survive intact, including eight-year-old Patty who emerged from the snow-covered shelter clutching her tiny 4" doll which she had smuggled with her for the trip West.

[quote]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. I doubt other cable networks would show reruns.

r370 hopefully one day it will be released. The Wonder Years and China Beach were finally released on DVD with *most* of the music intact; however some episodes had to have music replaced because of music rights. Sadly my favourite episode of China Beach had some beautiful Willie Nelson songs replaced by some generic music, completely destroying the artistry and impact of the episode.
Like you said, Cold Case is forgotten by many so I wonder if a company like Shout Factory would even bother to put all that effort into sorting out the music rights.

An episode of Due South called "A Hawk And A Handsaw" where a guy in a mental institution is dealing with his brother killing himself and he hates himself for not being there to save him from jumping to his death.
My brother died and still to this day I feel that I didn't do enough to help him and when I saw that episode it made me cry.

The bigoted "jokes" on that show do have an effect on its viewers. Someone once told me to my face that he considered homosexuality a choice, like smoking. He later revealed himself to be a fan of this show. It not only changed nothing regarding gays it made things worse, and what happened to the cast of [italic]Seinfeld[/italic] on their finale should have happened to the cast of that wretchedly vile cross between that and the equally abominable [italic]Full House[/italic] both on- and off-screen.

For the other Cold Case fans: do you remember that episode with the pedophile grandmother? It was one of the weirdest things i had ever seen. Also, the guest stars were all played by TV legends like Donna Mills and Perry King. It was quite fascinating.

r376, not only was Gaga Goo-Goo's performance in American Horror Story: Hotel absolutely atrocious but she also won over far superior performances like Kirsten Dunst (Fargo) and Queen Latifah (Bessie). 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.

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.

It sucks about the music rights. The show is no longer in reruns which is sad. I thought it was a little bit better than other crime procedural shows. I did think there were some awful episodes like the stupid one about disco dancers and the War of the Worlds radio broadcast episode.

I remember that episode and it was weird. Donna Mills played the creepy role quite well imo.

The finale of CHINA BEACH where they all go to the Vietnam Memorial. Actually the entire story line of that last season, where KC gets her daughter on the last helicopter out of Saigon; where McMurphy confronts her alcoholism; Boonie's lost a leg, but is raising KC's daughter; KC's daughter's video interviews with the main characters in an effort to find out about her history and her mother. And the final scene where they're leaving the Wall and KC's limo pulls up and she rolls the window down to see her daughter, now an adult.
That whole series was great, and there were many memorable episodes along the way, but that least season really did it justice.

Really, R22? I thought that was one of the worst episodes. She smacked him cause he had it coming. And then she chews through food AND the scenery as her mea culpa.
