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.
