* Subverted in the third episode -- Charles Kawalsky, who the viewer would have thought was going to be [[DecoyProtagonist a major character]], is in great pain in a hospital bed. The music takes a distinctly mournful tone. Jack, with the saddest, most genuine look of sorrow on his face asks him, "If you don't make it... [[spoiler: can I have your stereo?]]" Kawalsky, and the viewer, choke out laughter.
** Then the actual death of Kawalsky, a character who ''survived'' the film dies in such a heart-wrenchingly senseless way.

* The ending of "Fire and Water", where Nem uses his memory machine on Daniel Jackson to find out the fate of Omoroca (his mate) from ancient Babylonian texts.
-->'''Daniel:''' And in that place there was Omoroca, a woman who came forth from the heavenly egg, who walked among men by day. But at night she would retreat to the sea to sleep -- one of the beings called [[FishPeople Ohnes]]. The [[AbusivePrecursors god]] [[PuppeteerParasite Belus]] came down onto Babylon unto the place of Omoroca... [[spoiler:and cut the woman asunder!]]"
** Finding out that a loved one has died is never easy, but finding out after waiting [[TimeAbyss four thousand years hoping for their return]]...

* Basically half of the entire episode "Cold Lazarus" would qualify, where we see how much the lives of Jack and his ex-wife were impacted by their son's death.
** There's a really powerful moment where the crystal-energy doppelganger visit's Charlie's room and relives Jack's memory of his son's death, and comes out the other end a sobbing, shaking wreck. Especially potent when later on, the crystal Jack says that [[StarfishAliens physical death doesn't have the same meaning to its kind]], so it's experiencing a grief that it never even comprehended before.

* The season 1 episode, "Torment of Tantalus". Earnest, having been alone on a world for 50 years with no human contact, hugs Daniel and says, tearfully, "About time."
* Teal'c accepting that he should be executed in ''Cor-Ai.''
** During his conversation with Jack about his guilt, he spends the entire time looking down, lip quivering, near tears. This is a man who rarely, if ever, shows any form of emotion.
* Sam gets one in "Singularity", when she is ordered to leave Cassandra in the reactor silo, since the Goa'uld bomb in her chest is about to go off.
-->'''Cassandra:''' You promised you wouldn't leave me. You promised.\\

* All of Jonas dealing with his old professor friend, Dr. Kieran in "Shadow Play". The poor man is firmly in the grip of his hallucinations (a result of long-term exposure to radiation from naquadria), and Jonas just doesn't have the heart to tell him the truth.
* The moment in "Full Circle" when Skaara manages to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence while dying from a staff blast thanks to Oma.

Then of course he realises he may only have a few days[[spoiler: with her,]] and every moment between them becomes this as they try and find a way to [[spoiler: protect her and get her back to earth]].

Added DiffLines:

* The Tok'ra aren't always entirely sympathetic, but the events of "Cure" not only bring home their plight (they are in a very real way a dying race), but with their reaction to Egeria and what has happened to her, plus the fact that she's dying, all over a stupid, impossible to foresee mistake, also remind us that they aren't just arrogant, unfeeling dicks. Malak, for one, looks near to tears when Egeria tells him that she's dying and gives her SoProudOfYou line. Because after all, Egeria is his mother, the mother of ''all'' the Tok'ra and they found her again just in time for her to die, despite all they tried to save her.

** That this caps off arguably the most comedic entry in the series' entire history makes it all the more heartwrenching. There's a reason why Window of Opportunity tops almost every fan-favorite episode list.

* Gerak, also in The Fourth Horseman. Gerak is made a Prior, Teal'c talks some sense into him and has him agree to help on Earth with the plague, but the Ori put a failsafe in their Priors that causes them to self destruct if they betray the Ori. "If I help you, I will die. But I WILL DIE FREE!"

** When the doppelganger reveals that its entire mission was to help Jack, and explains that it deemed his emotional pain of loosing Charlie to be greater than any physical injury he had. It explains that its goal was to go and get Charlie and bring him back to Jack to make him better, which is heartbreakingly childlike logic. That revelation in an of itself is awful, but then the doppelganger [[spoiler: turns into Charlie to at least try and fulfil its mission and give Jack one last moment with him. The look on his face says it all]].

** What about Jack walking in on Daniel about to [[spoiler: jump of his balcony]], complete with him tearfully saying that it 'doesn't mean anything'. Its revealed in the next scene of course that this is due to some weekly alien shenanigans, but because of all the awful stuff thats happened to him, it is genuinely believable for a moment [[spoiler: that Daniel might actually jump.]]
