* The second-to-last scene in ''CyranoDeBergerac''. This troper can't even read it without tears; he loved her so much.

** To elaborate: Roxanne declares her love to Christian, and apologizes for first loving his beauty instead of his soul. She assures him she loves his soul now, and would love him even if he were ugly. Christian is distraught, almost in tears because he knows it is not ''his'' soul she loves. He runs away, leaving her confused, and the audience is afraid he will do something drastic. He does - he finds Cyrano, and pulls him from the fight to confess the entire ruse to Roxanne [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy because he wants her to choose which one of them she loves without any deception.]] This act shows, beyond a doubt, that you can feel just as sorry for Christian as you do for Cyrano.
** Cyrano's last words to Christian: "[[LetThemDieHappy I have told her. She chose you.]]"



* Cyrano's last [[strike:lie]] words to Christian: "[[LetThemDieHappy I have told her. She chose you.]]"

* When the dying Cyrano tells one of the nuns in Roxane's convent that he finally gives her permission to pray for him tonight, she responds that she never waited for his permission.

* When Cyrano insults Le Bret for making friends, Le Bret, rather than being offended, realizes that Cyrano is upset because Roxanne does not reciprocate his love.
-->'''Le Bret''': Tell this to all the world -- And then to me say very softly that...She loves you not.

* When the dying Cyrano tells one of the nuns in Roxane's convent that he finally gives her permission to pray for him tonight, she responds that she never waited for his permission.
* The Act One finale of ''Shrek the Musical,'' where the eponymous DeadpanSnarker reveals in the span of two minutes that he's adventurous, poetic, sentimental, desperately lonely, and aching to be one of the heroes he's read about. Describing his fantasy rescue of the maiden of his dreams, only to end in a moment of silence when he gets to showing his face, is like a gutpunch. This troper didn't even like the movie all that much...
* That song is one hell of an Act 1 Finale. And then when Fiona joins in, and she's in her ogre form singing about how she still believes the stories she's read despite everything wrong that's happened so far...oh lord. Heartbreaking.
* Not to mention the song "When Words Fail" from the second act, where Shrek is trying to get up the courage to tell Fiona how he feels about her and worried that he won't be able to phrase just right and she won't know how he feels . It's a rare moment of nervousness, anxiety, and personal insecurity from a character who has kept up this appearance that he doesn't care what the world thinks of him. And by the end of the song, he decides that it doesn't matter if words fail him, because Fiona will understand all the same.
