Sometimes, we all need a good cry.

1/10. Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, "How Come He Don't Want Me Man?"

As Will's father returns and leaves, again, Will bubbles over with emotion. Read the script or watch it below. Tears. Every time.


[Lou (Will's biological father) has just left after canceling his trip with Will]

William 'Will' Smith: You ain't gotta do nothin', Uncle Phil. You know, ain't like I'm still five years old, you know? Ain't like I'm gonna be sitting up every night asking my mom "when's daddy coming home", you know? Who needs him? Hey, he wasn't there to teach me how to shoot my first basket, but I learned it, didn't I? And I got pretty damn good at it, too, didn't I, Uncle Phil?

Philip Banks: Yeah, you did.

William 'Will' Smith: Got through my first date without him, right? I learned how to drive, I learned how to shave, I learned how to fight without him. I had *fourteen* great birthdays without him; he never even sent me a damn card.

[turns and shouts toward the door]

William 'Will' Smith: TO HELL WITH HIM! I didn't need him then, and I don't need him now.

Philip Banks: Will... Will...

William 'Will' Smith: [voice rises to a shout] No, you know what, Uncle Phil? I'm gonna get through college without him, I'm gonna get a great job without him, I'm gonna marry me a beautiful honey, and I'm-a have me a whole bunch of kids. I'll be a better father than he *ever* was. And I sure as hell don't need him for that, 'cause there ain't a *damn* thing he can ever teach me about how to love my kids!

[long pause]

William 'Will' Smith: How come he don't want me, man?


2/10. Buffy The Vampire Slayer

In 2001, Buffy lost her mom to unslayable cancer. The most heartbreaking moment is when Anya has a breakdown because nobody will explain to her what death is.

"I don't understand. I don't understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I mean, I knew her, and then she's... there's just a body. And I don't understand why she just can't get back in it. And not be dead anymore. It's stupid. It's mortal. And stupid. And Zander's crying and not talking, and I was having fruit punch. And I thought, Well Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever. And she'll never have eggs, or yawn, or brush her hair. Not ever. And no one will explain to me why." -Anya
