Now, of course, I am singing a song by Heart...

Are there any scenes in television shows/movies/books&stories/fanfic/fanart/fanvids that haunt you even in mere suggestion?

F'rinstance, I only need to read some words once said by a character in Serenity and I find I want to curl up into a ball and cry. I'm always gutted.

I can't listen to the gorgeous Israel Kamakawiwoʻole version of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', or, no joke, I actually do cry. Tears! In a similar vein, I now have a weirdly huge kink for characters saying thank you to each other and always smile when they do so earnestly. It generally doesn't matter which characters, anymore.

Whenever I listen to 'Alone' by Heart, my face splits into the widest grin because of one outstanding Merlin vid.

Have certain scenes or moments stuck with you throughout the years? What do you think it is in particular about them that stayed with you?

I tend to avoid reruns of Jurassic Bark because I don't like having my heart stomped into tiny little pieces of sadness. But I think that's normal.

Also, the ending of the Scrubs episode My Lunch gets to me because "I'm doing everything I know to save people, and not only does it not work, I actually made things worse" is both something I relate to more than the vast majority of Sad Moments In Fiction, and something that's done way less. (Although I got lucky, and despite me being dangerously incompetent at talking someone through a suicidal crisis, they didn't die and eventually talked to someone who was any good at all at helping with things.)

(My brain went "Think of examples that aren't depressing sitcom episodes!", so of course, I can't. (Unless you count songs, but hardly anyone's heard of "Dying in New Bruinswick".)

Oh God, the second episode of Scrubs with Brendan Fraser. (My brother and I do this thing where we're sing "Mistake!" in a operatic voice. Have been doing so for years. Both of us had completely forgotten it was from Scrubs until we saw it again last year.)

DO NOT EVEN WITH JURASSIC BARK. And Luck of the Fryrish? And Time Keeps on Slipping? And Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurtles? So many hours of my life spent crying at a freaking cartoon.

Futurama is ridiculously effective at making me want to cry! How does that even make sense? It's the story of a space-traveling pizza boy who has a wacky robot buddy! (Speaking of which, Lethal Inspection makes me go all gooey and sentimental at the end.)

I thought of something that is not a sitcom! Did you ever see the movie Different For Girls? It's one of the very few romantic movies that actually does grab me right in the heart.
