* Season 6's "Visions of Daphne" is one big TearJerker for Niles. He has to learn from Daphne that Donny is planning to propose to her, then she comes to him saying she had a vision that she was meant to be with someone else and he convinces her that she's right and shouldn't accept the proposal. Then Frasier and Martin convince him of how unethical, let alone what a bad friend he would be, if he let Daphne make this decision in his advice so he tries to talk her back into marrying Donny. She's determined to say no, but Donny proposes to her in such a sweet way (in front of all the Crane men) that she surprises them all by accepting. Niles simply walks, heartbroken, out of the room. The pain that Frasier and Martin feel for him is evident.

** At the end, Daphne has a second vision, saying that she saw her dream man with a dragon, which she thinks is ridiculous. The next scene is Niles, unwrapping a present Roz bought him - a ceramic dragon. And both of them are oblivious.

--> '''Niles:''' It's my own fault. I had chance after chance to tell her how I feel and I always kept my mouth shut.

* In season 4's "Mixed Doubles," Niles spends the whole episode trying to work up the courage to admit his feelings to Daphne. After both of them are cheated on by their dates, they meet up at a singles bar and Daphne asks him to imagine what it would have been like if they'd met there by chance at some other time in their lives. Niles imagines the scenario, which involves him asking, "What are you doing with the rest of your life?" Daphne laughs and thanks him and says, in a completely friendly manner, "I love ya, Doctor Crane." Niles sits for a moment before saying, completely honestly, "I love you too, Daphne."

* "Don Juan in Hell", the episode where Frasier openly acknowledges to himself how badly he's been traumatized by his failed marriages and relationships with women, to the point where he couldn't handle having a relationship with a very well suited GirlOfTheWeek because he knew how much it would hurt [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption when he inevitably lost her]]. The happy note it ends on, where he puts his demons ([[YourCheatingHeart Lilith]], [[RunawayBride Diane]], his mother, and his hippy first wife) behind him is even mitigated by him continuing to struggle with relationships over the next several seasons.

* In season 3's "Moon Dance," Daphne attends a ball with Niles to prove to his friends that he is over Maris. In the heat of a very passionate dance, Niles admits that he adores her. She says the same back to him and they share their first kiss. When they sit down, Niles is positively glowing until Daphne says, "I had no idea you were such a good actor." The way his face slowly falls as the realization dawns on him is crushing.

''{{Frasier}}'' has had many in its eleven seasons.

** Frasier's breakthrough in this episode really leads to some FridgeHorror TearJerker for the rest of the show and {{Cheers}}. Practically everything Frasier does is out of insecurity about himself to the point you realize he has no emotional or psychological stability. He's constantly afraid and hiding behind his profession and intellect to make himself feel good in every single moment of both shows. Even worse is his relationship and jealousy over Niles whenever he attains something he can't have, meaning that his damage has messed up his brother to a degree. I nominate Frasier Crane as WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds of the freaking century!

* Charlotte's breakdown in "Match Game". She's trying to put on a good face the whole episode only for it be revealed she's dangerously close to the DespairEventHorizon because of how much her life sucks.

* Mel and Niles' relationship, as well as Donny and Daphne's, is the most tearjerking hurdle between Niles and Daphne finally getting together:
** After being left at the altar, you see Donny breaking down and "making friends" with the groom on the cake, named "Mr. Chump", while repeatedly trying to sue Daphne and Frasier to ease his heartbreak. Over the course of the show he's later seen getting into multiples serious relationships far too fast as a result of being on the rebound, and outright admitting (in front of his newest partner) that he will never find someone as good as Daphne. It's played for laughs by that point, but we need only look towards his touching romance with Daphne in earlier seasons to know that he really did love her.
** Mel, although at first glance looking like just another Maris in Niles' life, also clearly loved him when they were together. She even says to Daphne, in a bittersweet CrowningMomentofHeartwarming, that she wants to be that person Niles trusts enough to help him be everything he ever wanted--showing that her manipulation of him, while still ultimately not good for Niles, was for his sake and not just because she's selfish like Maris was. Niles, in return, discards her the minute he thinks Daphne may have feelings for him and they break up after four days married. That heartbreak is a big part of why she becomes so cruel towards him later.

** The second time is especially sad. Frasier has recently debuted in a new market (Spokane,) but the audience is hostile since he is replacing a local legend. Frasier has Roz pretend to call in and fake a problem. In doing so, her insistence that she's perfectly fine shatters and she breaks down on the air.
