    Television or Movie scenes that, "Get You Every Time"

    So we just finished watching Apollo 13, and as always, I get a little tear in my eye at the very end when, after 4 minutes, the pod finally appears in the sky and Hanks and his guys announce that they've made it home safely. Every time, that scene gets me.

    Probably the worst (or best?) moment ever was from Backdraft. As a proud, older brother myself who went through his own share of problems growing up with his younger brother, the end of this movie always gets me. When Kurt Russel is laying on the catwalk, mortal wound crippling him with agony, he has the strength to proudely point out to his rescuers that his brother is below fighting the fire to get them out alive. "That's my brother, god ******..." he utters.

    Every time I hear that line, WHAM, I'm done.

    In Serenity, seeing River heartbroken as her seemingly mortally wounded brother apologizes for not doing better by her always gets me.

    And for television, in Supernatural, when Sam find his dead father in the hospital room after giving his soul for his other son's life...that's just heartbreaking.

    So what about you all?

    The end of Armageddon. Everything from Harry Stamper taking one for the team, and after they land. Especially when Chip's son runs up to him, and Willie Sharp salutes Grace and ask for permission to shake the hand of the bravest man he has ever met.

    The end of the Fox and the Hound movie.

    When Charlotte dies in the end of the original Charlottes Web movie.

    The Green Mile. I've seen the movie three or four times, and always get misty eyed. Same with the books, which I've read twice.

    Also, the series finale of some television shows. I remember years ago when (get ready to laugh) Full House went off the air, I got a tear in my eye. Even more recently, when Friends did their finale, I cried. A lot. I guess it was the visual of all their keys left on the table.

    I completely agree with everything that's been said here. Field of Dreams, especially.

    Speaking of tv finales, the final scene from Star Trek: TNG, when Picard comes to play cards with his people at the very end, it always gets me. it's such a perfectly nice, warm, homey kind of scene that says so much about what it means to be a family. I was moved by it when I was little, and I still love it just as much to this day.

    Another one that really nails me is the end of Big Fish, when the son is telling his father the most wonderful, joyous story about running away from the hospital and to the river, to find every person he ever loved there. And just as I'm recovering from that, the funeral scene actually has all of his friends from the past, happily sharing stories together. It's the 1-2 punch for me.

    What can I say? I'm a sucker for these movie and television moments that capture pure joy and warmth so well, especially the bittersweet ones.

    In Rocky II when Rocky wins and he's giving his speech and say's:
    "Except for my kid bein' born, this is the greatest night in the history of my life. I just wanna say one thing to my wife who's home: YO, ADRIAN! I DID IT!
    I've seen the movie over a dozen times and I still chocked up every time.

    In the movie Pride of the Yankees, Gary Cooper plays Lou Gehrig and when he gives his "Today, I consider myself, the luckiest man on the face of the Earth" line. I'm done.

    Those are the only ones I will admit (in public)

    Jock of the Bushveld. A true South African story about a wagon driver during South Africas gold rush. He saves a runt puppy from being drowned in a bucket and the loyalty of the dog to his master is nothing short of incredible. The obstacles he overcomes and the love between them is amazing. During the course of the film he goes deaf when a buck throws him, that is very heartbreaking as you watch his owner playing with him while he's crying over his dogs condition.

    In the end Jock gets shot by accident while defending a chicken coop from wild dogs. The second movie version ended before that happened, but the first movie had it and reading it in the book is incredibly painful. Great movies, but I basically cry like a little girl from beginning to end for both versions.

    Also I get choked up during Band of Brothers every time I watch it. Especially when they find the death camp and at the very end too.

    Well there are lots of that kind of scenes in my all time favorite TV-show Babylon 5. Outside show just mentioned, adol's example is definitely one of those scenes that gets me everytime.

    It's okay, because in the movie, he went back and saved him. More or less.

    Anything with dogs. Old Yellar kills me. Anything where a dog goes above and beyond to save it's master or even a stranger. I'm pouring tears. My wife gets mad at me because I never cry over anything, but let a dog save someone or give it's life... I can barely stand to watch the animal shelter commercials. There are other tales of animals doing feats that also get me but especially dogs.

    I dunno what it is, but the animal stuff always gets me.

    I forgot to add when Kirk officially became captain of the Enterprise in Star Trek(2009).

    I recently watched Trek and I am aware of somebody saying something along the lines of "putting Star Wars into Star Trek". As I watched the movie, I realized that Chris Pine's Kirk, like Luke Skywalker, started off as a nobody farm kid and became a hero.

    I agree with many already mentioned. There is one more that always gets me:

    From The Two Towers, the scene where Faramir's men beat the living snot out of Smeagol, causing him to once again enter his Gollum persona, just after he had such an amusing scene where he catches the fish and beats it on a rock. He was happy as Smeagol, he had friends (of a sort), he almost got free of the Ring, but after this scene he goes back to being the greedy, scheming being he was before.

    And one from The Return of the King:

    Sam: "I can't carry it for you, Mr. Frodo... but I can carry you!"

    The scene in Powder where he ___________ of the __________. And the end.

    I'm going to avoid spoilers, just in case someone has yet to see this movie.

    See it.

    I might come back to this tread later and update my post but for now:

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The Body - when Buffy find's Joyce's dead body on the couch and tries to save her, breaking her ribs in the process and when she starts to throw up and is cleaning it up as she cries. Still heartbreaking.

    A Clockwork Orange: At the end when Alex (no relation to our Alexx) is looking crazy with ecstasy as he is with the conservative Prime Minister and goes off into his thoughts of exhibitionist carnal pleasures in slow motion and his voice over haltingly states, "I was cured alright." Simply cool.

    Taxi Driver: At the end of the picture when Travis Bickle is dropping off Cybil Shepard's character at her apartment and she is implying acceptance of Travis back into her life, he just drives off. That was awesome. He was still the same man she had rejected earlier only now he was a socially recognized "hero". He wanted nothing to do with that type of shallow person. She is nothing but a shrinking object in his rear view mirror. An excellent scene.

    The Elephant Man: The scene where John Merrick is first introduced into his doctor's home and the doctor's wife greets John graciously. He tries to respond but he starts to cry. When the doctor ask what is wrong, John replies, "Never has a beautiful woman treated me so kindly."

    Then later in the same scene when they are having tea on the couch John talks about being abandoned by his mother whose picture he has with him. The doctor's wife praises her beauty and John says, "She had the face of an angel. I must have been a great disappointment to her." The doctor's wife responds that no mother could be disappointed in a son as kind as John. John continues, "If she could only have loved me as I am. If she could see me now surrounded by such good friends. I've tried so hard to be good..." At which point the doctor's wife breaks down and starts crying uncontrollably at his pitifullness. John, "Oh please. Don't cry." A great emotive scene.

    the Dalek episode from the 2005 series of Doctor Who when it turns out all the Dalek wants is too feel the sun on its face but because it is a Dalek and shouldn't feel it asks Rose to order it to self terminate

    fastforward to about 1.30 in



    Not sure if this one counts but I have watched it 3 time already and still find it sad....Saturdays episode of Doctor Who in which the truth is revealed about Starship UK

    One Piece - Chopper looks for a mushroom to cure his "father" and goes through a lot to find it, including getting attacked by his own herd which leads to



    what makes it even sadder is when you discover what the mushroom actually does and why Chopper thought it would help

    Yes, absolutely, this. "Let us be rid of it!"

    Others:

    Titanic - I will admit this: the "Nearer My God To Thee" sequence, where we see the real human tragedy - Captain Smith, Mr. Andrews, the Strausses, the woman telling the story to the two children, the band, etc. That's the most touching part of the movie for me. (And I have to confess to really liking the very, very last shot/scene as well.)

    1776 - this is one of my favorite films, and the big resolution (even though we know how it will turn out), when Dickinson is outmaneuvered and the resolution passes. "It's done".

    Transformers (animated film): I remember being really freaked out seeing this for the first time when all the classic characters getting killed, especially (as I thought), my favorite, Jazz. So the scene on Unicron when Daniel finds and saves Jazz, his father, etc. still makes me feel good, remembering realizing that my favorite character had, in fact, survived.

    It's a Wonderful Life: The whole last five minutes, basically.

    Shawshank Redemption: Same as above.

    Return of the Jedi: When Palpatine is electrocuting Luke, watching Vader look back and forth, and then (as the "Jedi" theme suddenly starts playing), turning on Palpatine and sending him packing. (I like to think that's the moment that 'Vader' reverts back to 'Anakin'.)

    I'll post more if I think of them.
