* "Your Daddy's Son."" * Almost any part of the show can turn on the waterworks post- "Nothing Like the City." ** You mean post-Prologue, right?

Well, uh, that was a big cut. Lots of personal lines removed, and 'the entire thing' isn't much of an example.
* ''Ragtime''. Pretty much the whole thing, but especially "Your Daddy's Son." * '''Till We Reach That Day''. I will never forget being ten years old, at my first-ever Broadway show, ''bawling my eyes out'' at poor, dead Audra [=McDonald=]. * This troper is a wreck at the final verse of "Make Them Hear You" [[spoiler: just before Coalhouse is killed]], particularly the lines: --->'''Coalhouse''': Teach every child to raise his voice\\ And then my brothers, then will justice\\ Be demanded by ten million righteous men\\ Make them hear you\\ When they hear you, I'll be near you again . . . * For this troper, the Epilogue is a pretty calm song, compared to the enormous tearjerkers listed above, but when [[spoiler: an adorable, tiny Coalhouse Walker III runs out into Mother's arms]], she starts bawling.
