*** What was the last thing Snow White said to him before the Old Hag arrives at the cottage? "Why, Grumpy. You ''do'' care." No doubt that was ringing over and over in his head.

** Grumpy can't even bear to ''look'' at her after all the crap he gave her. He ''had'' to have been wallowing in guilt over their vitriol throughout the majority of Snow White's stay.

** When the Queen first gives him his orders, he reacts in horror and begins begging her not to go through with it, until the Queen bluntly reminds him of the penalty of failure.

* Snow White is making a pie for Grumpy right before the Queen shows up.

to:

* "Someday My Prince Will Come." Why? Because we know full well, though Snow White doesn't, that back at the castle the Queen is plotting her demise via the poisoned apple. The thought of someone wanting to harm Snow White -a young, gentle person- is heartbreaking.
** On top of that, the reprise has Snow White
making a pie for Grumpy ''Grumpy'' right before the Queen shows up.



* The music during the funeral, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiaBr71Pqxo Chorale for Snow White]]." The piece is all organ in the film proper, but switches to [[PlayingTheHeartStrings chamber strings]] partway through the soundtrack version. Neither rendition is any less emotional.

** Then poor Dopey, who is pretty much the baby of the group, is so upset that he begins to cry into Doc's shoulder. And Doc, who is barely holding back tears himself, can only gently pat Dopey on the back.

* This doubles as a moment of heartwarming as well, but the scene with the Huntsman when he hesitates to kill Snow White, you can't help but feel bad for him. He didn't want to do it, but he knew it would be his death if he didn't. Regardless, he made her run for it instead.

* The most Tear Jerking/Heartwarming thing about this movie is not actually a part of the story. In Creator/DonBluth's guide to animation, Bluth himself, former Disney employee, described the point during production where Disney ran out of money halfway through the film. With no way to finish, he had to go to the bank and beg for another loan in front of a board of executives. As an aid, he brought along fragments of the half-finished film, fragments which astounded the entire board. When finished, the Head Executive got to his feet and made what, for a business man [[TheGreatDepression at that time especially]], constituted a ''tremendous'' leap of faith into the complete unknown:

:: :Perhaps what's even sadder is his prediction was correct. [[SmallRoleBigImpact His decision was the catalyst to one of the most important milestones in animation history, and yet his name has in all likelihood been lost to time.]]

* After the chase and death of the Queen, the dwarfs return home to find Snow White dead and the soundtrack skips to what seems like complete and total silence for a full minute; after the musical chaos of the previous scene it's the cinematic equivalent of a punch in the gut. There's actually very soft organ music playing in the background, but the effect is still there. The shots of the Dwarves crying... ANY shot of a Disney character crying is pretty saddening, especially [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Grumpy]], who is far in the corner of the room they're in, and begins to cry just as well.

** One has to also keep in mind that the story already elaborated that Snow White ''wasn't'' dead and pretty much spelled out how she would be revived. Despite the film essentially spoiling it's own HappyEnding, the dwarfs' mourning is played with such earnest pathos you can only feel sorrow for them.

** One has to also keep in mind that the story had already elaborated that Snow White ''wasn't'' dead ''[[DisneyDeath wasn't]]'' [[DisneyDeath dead]] and pretty much spelled out how she would be revived. Despite the film essentially spoiling it's its own HappyEnding, the dwarfs' mourning is played with such earnest pathos that you can only feel sorrow for them.



** Probably the biggest reason this scene was such an effective tearjerker is because other than the mourning animals, the scene was played completely straight and realistically, with the exact same atmosphere one would expect at a real-life funeral. No epic soundtrack, no great meaningful speech, no symbolic magical events... just sadness and loss.
* When the dwarves are surrounding Snow White's coffin and are all placing flowers, ''Grumpy'' is the one who goes up to put the flowers into Snow White's hands.
* After the Prince kisses Snow White, he kneels by her coffin and lowers his head in despair. ''He'' had no idea his kiss would wake her up.
