Friends, when Phoebe has had the triplets and is talking to them

Scrubs, when Carla is talking to Laverne as she dies, when Cox flips out about losing a patient (and 'How to Save a Life' by the Fray is playing), when Cox realises he's actually at Ben's funeral, when Carla is sobbing in the hospital bed after having the baby. And many more. Scrubs always makes me cry!

The end of A Beautiful Mind.

Terms of Endearment, when Debra Winger is dying and her tween son is being horrible to her, and she says "I know you love me" really fiercely so he doesn't feel guilty in the future, because he knows she knows.

I've recently rewatched Seven pounds,

After watching it and knowing what happens the beginning scene where will smith is speaking to woody harrelson and being horrible to him is heartbreaking! And also when will smith runs to the hospital to see if there's any way his new girlfriend will get a donor with out him 😭😭😭

I always stick seven pounds on when I need a good weep

The end of In The Name of the Father, where they hold up the evidence which frees him, and they try to get him to leave through the back door but he walks over the chairs to leave by the front door. The whole film just devastates me.
