*One of the most somber and sad moments in the game comes at the end of the "Frozen world" part after songbird takes Elizabeth. You fight all they to the end, then an old woman has you join her on a ruined platform, revealing to booker that he's Many years in the future, and an old and weary Elizabeth is burning new york to the ground. After giving booker a card to give to Elizabeth, he asked her what it is, and she called it Advice. When he askes her on what, her answer is one of the most haunting and surrendered lines in the game
"It's advice, on how not to become me."
She then sends him back to an earlier time to save Elizabeth one last time.

** A Fridge TearJerker in that, while you presumably wanted the girl to wipe away a debt [[spoiler:there is no debt but to yourselves. You were going to take her to New York only because that's where you live and you wanted her to live with/near you, but you forgot about it and mistook that desire for a external order.]]

* Hearing Elizabeth [[spoiler:be tortured through the tears in the Asylum, begging for mercy and desperately saying she'll be "Comstock's Daughter"]] is just gutwrenching. Worse is the obvious panic in Booker's voice every time he says anything during that portion of the game.
* The announcement you hear in the projection room in Comstock House. Coupled with the music that plays, it ''is'' rather tragic if you think about it.
* [[spoiler:The Songbird's death should count. Being drowned at the bottom of the sea, whilst Elizabeth looks on, sadly telling it to let go, while it screams in agony and tries to reach her. Sure, it was built to be an abusive partner, but it obviously loved her in its own twisted way, and she cared for it too.]]
** [[spoiler:The Songbird's eyes finally switch to green just before dying, indicating it's in a peaceful mood, having decided to FaceDeathWithDignity.]]
** [[spoiler:Oh, and did you notice the Little Sister crying over a dead Big Daddy in the background, just after Songbird's death? That's how Elizabeth could've been.]]
** [[spoiler:Arguably made just a litle bit sadder, once you've played the Burial DLC, and see just what Songbird went through, and how it pair bonded with Elizabeth in the first place.]]

* The song "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" becomes a massive TearJerker after you finish the game, by the virtue of both reflecting the intrinsically tragic plot of the game and in its standalone right, being a song about accepting the mortality of your loved ones and family members. And if that's not enough to make you bawl, listen to the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9F1l6xXLSI0 OST version]] of the song -- you don't need to listen very closely to hear that Courtnee Draper is basically fighting back tears herself by the end.
** And in that same vein, the first song that plays over the end credits, after witnessing the end and knowing what you know now - the already-sombre barbershop quartet version of "God Only Knows."
** Burial At Sea, Episode 2. [[spoiler: Events come full circle for the Franchise, to the first titles Good Ending with Jack and the little sisters. At great cost to Elizabeth. What she did will never be known.]]

* Lady Comstock's audio recordings are increasingly difficult to listen to, as the woman becomes more and more disillusioned by her husband's actions, but feels she can't call him out on them because she once considered herself beyond redemption too, but Comstock offered it anyway. And when she does finally break and decides to confront her husband... [[spoiler:he kills her in cold blood, using her as a martyr to further his own goals.]] And that's not even talking about that time when he [[spoiler:forcibly resurrects her and treats her to a FateWorseThanDeath, so he could use her to kill Booker, and get Elizabeth.]]
