Television Saddest TV moments

I'm trying to compile a list of the top 20 saddest moments in TV shows, no reality shows or cartoons please! I would love to do my own personal favorites, but I can't put anything in order. The my first is definitely when Buffy comes home to find her mother dead on the couch, and pretty much that whole episode. A few of my others would include:
Fresh Prince: when Will's father leaves, his convo w/Phillip.
Ally McBeal: when Billy dies after his speech in court.
I have several Buffy moments, including: Anya's speech in The Body. When Buffy kills Angel, When Oz leaves (Willow asks him, "Oz, don't you love me?" Oz, "My whole life I've never loved anything else.") And then when Tara was shot.
BSG, when Kara's viper explodes/she kills herself; When Roslin dies at the end and he puts his ring on her finger.
Roswell: when Alex dies.
Charmed: both Prue's and Cole's deaths.
Lost: Juliet dies in Sawyer's arms.
Joan of Arcadia: Judith's death.
Monk: Mr. Monk and the Actor, the conversation between the two at the end about Trudy.
Grey's Anatomy (which I don't watch, but loved this clip): when Denny died and Izzy was lying with his body.
There are more, but I think you get the point. I would really appreciate any input, the more the better, so feel free to add as many as you want/can think of. I need a big one to tally all the answers. They will go in ascending order, from least to most votes.

These are my top ten saddest moments, ordered by show, and, let me tell you, it was not easy narrowing it down to just ten. I originally had over twenty.

- Tony and McGee saying goodbye to Kate in the morgue at the end of Kill Ari (that whole episode, really)
- Vance recapping Jenny Shepherd's final moments in Judgment Day

Criminal Minds:
- Haley's death in 100
- Emily's death in Lauren

- Amber's conversation with House on the bus in Wilson's Heart (and really that entire episode)
- Kutner's funeral in Simple Explanation

- When the Jane Doe is identified as Aiden in Heroes

- When Brennan wonders if she could have done anything to prevent Zach's becoming a serial killer's apprentice at the end of The Pain in the Heart

- Beckett breaking down when she can't revive Jack Coonan to get the information about her mother's murder in Sucker Punch

- Jack and Chloe's last conversation in the series finale
