Science Fiction Tear Jerkers that you know of?

Hello All!

I am wondering which episodes of what series and even a movie was a Tear Jerker even Tear reducers were in.

My starting is Stargate SG-1: Season 1 Episode 7 - Cold Lazarus
Jack O'neil gets to see an energy production of his dead son Charlie and ultimately has to be brought back to the gate as the projection was dying.

I am in tears right now as I am typing this post and I am about to start sobbing from it.

All the best!

    I normally don't cry much. Guy thing, at least for me. I was watching Star Trek Voyager. Season three "Real Life". My father had passed away years ago, and yet one of the scenes with the Doctor and his little girl had me going. Still does to a point. Good episode.

    Apollo 13 where they say "Good Bye, Aquarius and we thank you." to the LEM that saved their lives.

    And in Herby Goes Bananas where they threw him over the side of the passenger ship. (I was 3 years old and it so traumatized me that I ran screaming out of the room and couldn't watch that part for over a decade.) just thinking about it makes me get a little teary eyed.

    Hmmm I beginning to think I might be a bit heartless. The closest I've come to tears would have to be the end of silent running. But even then, just a feeling of remorse, not actual tears.

    For me it was the death of Prime in the original Transformers Movie.
    I was 8 at the time. See my biggest hero, in the first 30mins of the film was hard for me.
    Apart form a few other films, I don't cry much.

    The ending of ST: First Contact. The landing of the Vulcans is an awesome moment.

    This entire sequence where Winona is delivering her baby, Jim Kirk, in the middle of this disaster and when she's about to lose her husband... this always gets me.

    The ones that get me are Jurassic Bark from Futurama. And the series finale of DS9, Jake alone on the station with the camera pulling out and away. It's like, "Holy ****, thats the last we'll ever see of the DS9 crew"... Doesn't make me cry, but it definitely makes me feel, i dunno, remorse? or something.

    I can only think of a fantasy one. The Return of the King. At Aragorn's coronation, when he and Arwen greet the Hobbits. They bow awkwardly, and Aragorn says:

    "My friends. You bow to no one."

    and everyone kneels.

    That and the goodbyes at the end get me every time.

    Stargate Atlantis episode "Sunday" and the death of Carson. Superman removing Lois Lane's body from the car in Superman the movie. What a scene, you'd have to have a heart of stone not to be choked up.

    Babylon 5.

    (Here's video)

    And this:

    And moving less of tears but more of hair raising.

    And this: G'Kar's speech on freedom (turn your speakers up for this one...)

    And this: Battle of the Line Speech (hair on end sensation)

    And of course this: "No."

    Michael Strazynski is a frigging genius.

    And the series finale of SG:1 was upsetting on its own.

    I get a bit lumpy in my throat at a few things, but don't generally cry. However, having watched the whole of Babylon 5 once through -except- the last video tape, then having watched the series all over again a year or two later, I then decided, as I wasn't going into work until lunchtime, that I would watch the finale in the morning. The overall mood and the ending of sleeping in light got me near tears during the whole episode, but I managed to keep it in check, but then as I got ready for work, the waterworks started, and I was weeping like a child by the time I was driving through town, going to work. That was really embarassing. Just couldn't stop the tears coming and I didn't even know why! (I was laughing about it at some points during the journey)

    Third time I watched the whole thing through, with my current girlfriend, I managed to keep the episode to just a lump in my throat and slightly watery eyes (she wept like a baby!) and we are now, two years on again, watching the series with her family. Four and a half seasons to go til I have to make some excuse about hayfever or something... :D
