Things on screen that have made me weep the way my mom used to at the Hallmark commercials that aired during trashy Sunday night movies.

    The Six Feet Under finale.
    F0d5c61f 02de 468c 9fc6 6b89f80cb198
    I will hear no word against SFU, and the finale is exquisitely sad and satisfying at the same time.
  2. β€’
    Parenthood (every other episode, basically)
    3a4323f8 0908 411d ba6e c7ad2f2f22bc
    Jason Katims lives to make his viewers cry, and I am among his devotees.

    Homeward Bound

    My late father in law used to tear up when one of his kids teased him with, "Oh, Peter." I miss him. I'm crying a little now, Google image searching for a photo of Shadow.

    HIMYM, when Marshall's dad dies.

    His face. Lily's face. "I'm not ready for this."

    I saw it 7 times in the theater when I was thirteen. It's there, forever, in a soft adolescent corner of my heart (will gooooo onnnnnnn). #sorrynotsorry

    Music plays, cue the tears.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the entire episode of "The Body", though especially Anya's speech.
    3ccbcea3 500f 44db a9d4 48e15c473778
    But I don't understand, I don't understand how this all happens, how we go through this, I mean I knew her, and now she's...there's just a body, and I don't understand how come she just can't get back in it and not be dead anymore. It's stupid! It's mortal! and it's stupid! Xander's crying & not talking, & I was having fruit punch & I was thinking that well Joyce will never have fruit punch, ever, & she'll never have eggs, or yawn, or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why.

    Friday Night Lights, when Matt's dad dies

    Goddamn it, Katims. I clearly cannot handle it when parents die.
