Yes, even ''[[SadistShow Family Guy]]'' has moments that make you want to cry, despite being buried under ComedicSociopathy. When the theme song says that it has "positively can do all the things that make us laugh and ''cry''," they mean it.

Added DiffLines:

* In the episode, ''Dog Bites Bear'', [[spoiler:Rupert is violently chewed to pieces as if he were a mere chew toy. Needless to say, when Stewie sees Rupert's remains all strewn about the living room, he does ''not'' take Rupert's death well at all. Stewie becomes so mad at Brian, that he decides to end their friendship because of it. What makes it worse is that Brian ''knew'' that Rupert was very real to Stewie, he knew how much that stuffed bear meant to the toddler... and he just rips Rupert to shreds, anyway. They have a fight twice over it; once at home and on the mountains. Granted, on the way back to Rhode Island, Brian does buy Stewie a bear that looks exactly like Rupert (of course, Stewie never knew it was a replacement bear.)]]

* Basically, the treatment of Meg in the later episodes (in the early episodes, Meg was just a generic teenage girl character that wanted to be like the popular kids and hated her family for being embarrassing and not letting her do what the other kids do) is a major tear jerker. It's pretty depressing how [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer the majority of the world hates you]] for just being yourself and treats you like crap. Dealing with physical and emotional abuse daily can really hurt your self-esteem and sanity, which is why Meg shows tendencies of mental illness.

* Creator/CarrieFisher, the voice of Angela, passing away.
* A very sad example, Seth has said he WANTS to end the show, but Fox won't let him, since it's such a CashCowFranchise and [[Main/CorruptCorporateExecutive Fox wants to milk it for all it's worth]], just like ''The Simpsons''. This has led to him purposely making episodes has outrageous and cruel as possible. Problem is, though, that millennials seem to love this sadist humor (which also seems to be the reason ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' is so popular). To go from legendary episodes like "Road to Rhode Island", "Death has a Shadow", and "North by North Quahog" to being trapped on your own show and wanting it just to end... You can't help but feel for Seth and at the same time, all too easily, realize that the decline of the show, in some capacity, was Seth [=MacFarlane=] just trying to get the show cancelled.

* Stewie's tantrum when Peter and Chris break the TV in "Chap Stewie" can be pretty heartbreaking to watch. [[MoodWhiplash Until he bites Lois, throws a picture against the wall, and headbutts Meg hard enough to break her nose, that is.]]

** Though this is somewhat lessened by the fact that Brian never apologized for what he did, and think's it was just a small joke he did.

* Brian's BreakTheHaughty moment in "Brian's Play". Brian's play was pedestrian and cheesy, but it was ''his'' and one of the few things he's made that other people actually liked. Yeah, him trying to hide that Stewie had real talent just so he could keep his delusions was a big dick move, but a lot of creators can empthasize with him. You work and you slave, and even your best just isnt good enough, while others can just pull the damn Mona Lisa out of their ass like its nothing.
