So Homage, the shirt company, asked this question today. What show or scene hit you in feels. And try to post a link. 

I’ll start. When Will Smith said “how come he don’t want me man”.

When J R got shot and everybody had to wait until Fall to find out who did it.

Immediately thought of Will Smith in FPOBA. As someone who was adopted (way different circumstances — my birth mom was pregnant at 14 lol) it hits me every-time.

I’ll add in 2 from “Boy Meets World” — the show that shaped my youth. 

  1. When Eric finally gets into college and his dad, Allen, says, “I’ve never been more proud of you.” 
  2. When Allen yells at Shaun for influencing Corey (getting drunk) when it was the other way around. Later in episode he apologizes and explains he was under the influence of alcohol at the time (because his son was drunk) and then tells Shaun he is, and always has been, a part of their family.

My mom was pregnant with me before she was 15 1/2

I grew up with Boy Meets World, and embarrassingly cried at least a few times. When Mr Turner gets in an accident, when Chet dies, and I’m sure there is more here Mr feenee killed me

I remember this one… I disagree with a bunch of people saying saved by the bell Jessie episode. It was sad but not that sad.

Didn’t mean to laugh at the age, btw. The lol was for it being a little different than getting adopted by your uncle cause you get in fights in west Philly lol.

Boy Meets World has some good ones. I’ll go with S6E18 where Eric wants to adopt a kid he was a big brother to. The episode doesn’t have an overwhelmingly sad moment but the whole thing is tough to watch because you know it’s not going to work out for Eric.

The Jesse scene wasn’t even sad. She was just an idiot. Needed to pick a bigger drug to hammer the emotions they were going for.

Good call.

My favorite show of all time is Scrubs. It was definitely a comedy that had its share of sad and serious moments, but none harder to take than this one.

I was not a regular watcher of the show, but ER had an episode in it's first season called "Love's Labor Lost" about a woman and her baby who both died during childbirth.  Never saw a show that hit me in the feels like that episode.

Fresh Prince clip was the first one I thought of as well.

I also thought of the ending of the Wonder Years. It is sad, happy, and serious. I was surprised how emotional I got at the time, and even now it hits me.

The last episode of The Wonder Years definitely brings the feels, as someone who grew up watching that show every week with my whole family.

I got daddy issues so the Fresh Prince episode is at the top for sure.
