* The scene right before it is even better -- [[spoiler:Brain is just seconds from bringing his plan to total success, until he turns and sees just how sad Pinky is at not being able to give his letter to Santa Claus. Right then and there, Brain effectively decides that if Pinky can't get what he wants, then neither will he.]] Of course, it wasn't so much the letter itself as it was the contents of that letter. [[spoiler:Brain initially passes it off as some stupid letter Pinky wrote. When he actually reads it, he realizes that Pinky was writing to Santa about how great a guy the Brain is, yet he is never rewarded for all his effort, thus Pinky wished for Santa to give Brain anything intended for him, and maybe even the world to go along with it.]] Who knows if Brain was tearing up more out of Pinky giving him the respect he so desired, or the realization that he treated Pinky really badly, yet Pinky still wrote all that, but, er, [[SandInMyEyes it's just the fluorescent lighting]]....

** What makes this moment all the more touching is that this is seemingly the very first time that Brain realizes and regrets his abuse of Pinky. Even though he doesn't speak, the tears in his eyes say louder than words the one thing Brain is thinking: ''He's my only friend, he's heartbroken on my account, and all I did was push him away.''

Even though he doesn't speak, the tears in his eyes say louder than words the one thing Brain is thinking: ''He's my only friend, he's been heartbroken on my account, and all I did was push him away.''



* "Two Mice and a Baby." Apparently [[{{Superman}} Kal-El]] spent a few days with a pair of lab mice who grew to love him. In the end, they decided to give him back to a pair of human parents as they realized he would have a better upbringing there.
** The scene where they give him to his human parents. At first Brain concludes good riddance as Kal-El is more harm than good to their plans. Then the infant gently calls out goodbye to him, even calling him "Dada", moving Brain to tears.

** [[{{Shumazau}} This troper]] is an embittered jerk who kept a straight face throughout ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', and has never seen ''Pinky and The Brain'' before. That entry made her tear up right there. That's how touching it is.
** What makes this moment all the more touching is that for the very first time, Brain realizes how abusive he's been to Pinky. Even though he doesn't speak, the tears in his eyes say louder than words the one thing Brain is thinking: ''He's my only friend and I made him cry.''

** And to take it up to eleven ('''it''' being Brain's guilt and the heartwarming mood of the moment), despite tearing up uncontrollably, Pinky refuses to defy Brain and follows his instructions to activate the device.
** And Pinky still prompted Brain to start his world domination speech, '''even if it was right after he yelled at him and called his letter stupid.''' When Brain struggles to muster through and eventually just glares at Pinky in guilt, the latter [[UndyingLoyalty just smiles and signals him on, as if to tell him it's okay]]. This was the final nail in the coffin for Brain.

** Pinky said the letter was ''very, very important'', '''whose name was mentioned over and over in the letter?''' Therefore, who is very, very important to Pinky?

* If you've ever doubted which means more to Brain -- his friend, or world domination? -- just watch the episode "A Pinky and the Brain Halloween." Pinky [[DealWithTheDevil sells his soul to the devil]] [[MediaWatchdogs (not called such, of course)]] in exchange for control of the world for Brain. Brain has "everything I ever wanted"... and, no matter how hard he tries to deny it, he doesn't enjoy it. So he goes to "Hades" and challenges the devil himself to a contest to get his friend back. Naturally, it's not until after he signs the contract that the JackassGenie lets him ReadTheFinePrint: if he wins, he gets his friend back, but he doesn't just lose control of the world -- he's agreed to ''never again'' try to take over the world on his own! "Think of it, Brain -- you can walk away now and rule the world, or you can risk it all and try to get Pinky back." Which will he choose?

** He then goes back for his friend and gets them both to safety. Brain's so happy they're both alive and to learn that the future ''can'' be changed, he hugs his friend hard enough to nearly suffocate him. Anything really ''is'' possible with ThePowerOfFriendship!
