* While talking with his proud dad about his heroic deeds, he's convinced that he's finally gonna come home. But Zeus tells him he ''is'' proud but he's not yet proven himself a "true hero", being rich and famous doesn't count. When Herc asks what more is there, Zeus could only say that [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself Herc has to discover that for himself]]. After Zeus leaves, Herc slams his fists on the floor in anger and confusion, feeling that he ''still'' isn't good enough.
-->'''Hercules:''' ''(to Phil)'' This stuff doesn't seem to be getting me anywhere.

* When Phil discovers that Meg is (reluctantly) working with Hades and attempts to warn Herc, Herc just goes into complete denial, leading him to hit Phil in a blind rage. The look of hurt on Phil's face right after this shows just how much this has affected him emotionally.

** I'll bet you cried a bit when Herc sang "I Can Go The Distance." Well guess what? That song so full of joy and hope gets a sad refrain right here, and it's so ironically tragic. You may cry now.

to:

** I'll bet you cried The music is even more heart-wrenching. When Meg is first crushed, a bit when Herc sang few bars from "I Won't Say I'm In Love" play in a slightly bitter tone... and then as we watch her die, "I Can Go The Distance." Well guess what? That Distance" - a song so full of joy and hope gets - plays in a sad tragic refrain right here, and it's so ironically tragic. You may as Herc cradles her body. If you didn't cry now.before... Who really went the distance? It was Meg...

* After Hercules loses his strength, Hades, Pain, and Panic humiliate him in front of Meg, causing her to cry.

* After Hercules loses his strength, Hades, Pain, and Panic humiliate him in front of Meg, causing her to cry. Hades even gleefully reveals that Meg was under his employ the entire time and mocks that Hercules gave up his strength for a lie. Cue Hercules screaming out that Hades is lying.



* Meg's death. You get a lot of focus on her dying in pain with Phil beside her - and adults will realize she must be in ''agony''. And then Herc's rushing back to try and see her before she dies (even though there's not a whole lot he could've done), while the Fates prepare to snip her thread. [[DiedInYourArmsTonight And she]] ''[[DiedInYourArmsTonight doesn't]]'' [[DiedInYourArmsTonight die in his arms.]] She dies and she doesn't even get to see him. And Herc arrives to see her lying there clearly dead, and pale, and limp. Herc holds her and starts sobbing manly tears, and she's just lying limp in his arms. You hardly ever see somebody actually dead ''on screen'' in anything below a PG-13. But here you're given a good thirty seconds to take in this heart-wrenching moment. You must cry. You ''must''.

* Meg's death. On-screen, no less, we watch her suffering and clearly in pain even as Herc rushes back to see her, and then she dies. And it's no cliché DiedInYourArmsTonight moment - Herc ''doesn't'' get to tell her he's won, or say sorry, or that he loves her. No, he can only cradle her limp, cooling body in his arms and sob ManlyTears. I challenge you ''not'' to cry.

** What makes this all the more tragic and shocking is how dead bodies are never usually shown on screen in kids' movies. Meg's body is prominently featured for a good thirty seconds.

** Tate Donovan's voice acting is just amazing for this. And even ''PHIL'' is crying during this scene and he hated Meg up until she came to tell him Hercules was in trouble.
--->'''Phil:''' I'm sorry, kid. There are some things you just can't change.
--->'''Hercules:''' (''looking up, determined'') Yes I can.
