---> '''Homer: Somewhere in that sea of bull hormones is the sweet, wonderful girl I married. The woman who, instead of swatting a fly, would give it a bath and send it on its way. (voice breaking) I'd sure like to go home and have Jiffy Pop with her!'''

** When Bart calls his family, pretending to be his kidnapper, Marge pleads with him to return Bart and bursts into tears. This guilts Bart into briefly dropping the charade and telling her not to worry, which makes Marge cry even more.

** The despondent, utterly broken expression on Krusty's face as he's led into the courthouse. He looks like he's going to cry.

* ''Lisa On Ice:'' The episode involves Bart and Lisa discovering they have a talent for hockey, and as a result their SiblingRivalry gets wrenched UpToEleven. They spend the whole episode viciously competing against each other. Eventually, they reach the end of an important match, and both teams are tied. As Bart is heading over to the goal to make the winning shot, the crowd starts yelling "Kill, Bart" (or "Kill Bart", for Lisa's supporters), baying for blood. Bart and Lisa look at each other, and both remember happier times - Bart remembers helping Lisa reach for the cookie jar, Lisa remembers Bart giving her a scoop of his ice cream after she dropped hers. Both decide to throw down their sticks in the final seconds of the game, which results in a tie. Marge sheds tears of pride for her children, while Homer sobs, exclaiming "[[MoodWhiplash They're both losers!]]" As a result, [[BadCopIncompetentCop Chief Wiggum]] incites a [[HockeyFight hockey riot]] while Bart and Lisa [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming peacefully skate around the rink]].
** There's also this:
---> '''Snake:''' Those kids are, [[LikeIsLikeAComma like]], ''so'' sweet. If only they had had pee-wee hockey when ''I'' was a lad. ''[sniffles]'' [[MoodWhiplash Oh well!]] ''[grabs a crowbar and joins the riot, wrecking the arena]''



** In the same episode, Bart asks Homer what he does with photos Maggie, since there never seem to be any around the house. Homer responds that he keeps them, "where I needs them the most." The scene then cuts to the reactor where Homer works. Above his workspace is a plaque that reads, "Donít Forget, Youíre Here Forever". Homer has partially covered the letters with pictures of Maggie in such a way that the plaque now reads, "Do It For Her." That's enough to make any dad tear up.

-->'''Barney''': "Don't cry for me. I'm already dead..."

to:

-->'''Barney''': "Don't My name is Barney Gumble. I'm 40, I'm single, and I drink. [[HiddenDepths There's a line in]] ''{{Theatre/Othello}}'' about a drinker - "Now a sensible man, by-and-by a fool, presently a beast". That pretty well covers it.
-->'''Barney''': Don't
cry for me. I'm already dead..."

* The very first aired episode "Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire". After not getting his Christmas bonus, Homer attempts to cut corners at a cheap supermarket. He then sees Flanders buying lavish gifts for his family and chatting with his son about how this could be "the best Christmas yet". Sad music builds up as Homer gazes at the random junk he just bought his family and sheds a single tear at letting them down. And of him coming clean at the end, which is thankfully turned Heartwarming with the introduction of Santas Little Helper.

** An earlier scene with Homer and Marge in bed, in which Homer is struggling to tell her that he didn't get his Christmas bonus. He doesn't have the heart to be honest with her, and simply asks if he can do the Christmas shipping instead, leading to the aforementioned scene at the cheap supermarket.
** Santa's Little Helper's mistreatment near the end of the episode, before Homer adopts him. Sadly, [[TruthInTelevision retired greyhounds usually get the short end of the stick in real life]].

** This line, uttered by a sobbing Lisa just before Mr. Bergstrom leaves:
--> '''Lisa:''' "Thank you, Mr. Bergstrom... If you don't mind, I'll run alongside the train as it speeds you from my life..."
** The entire ending sequence of Homer cheering up a crying Lisa can bring about happy tears.

* Marge having a complete mental breakdown at the beginning of "Homer Alone." What causes her to snap is Maggie accidentally spraying her with her bottle, causing Marge, already on the verge of a meltdown, to scream [[BigNo "NOOO!!!"]] and park her car in the middle of the bridge. She remains silent and unresponsive for a while, until Homer eventually finds her and coaxes her out of the car.

** And then it turns out Marge was ''right'' and Bart had been plotting to use the bulldozer for a prank to turn the Springfield sign into the words "FIE". He also acts like doesn't care his mother is no longer being involved with him, until a lunch packed by her causes his conscience to act up.
-->'''Marge:''' (in Bart's imagination when she sees the result of Bart's prank) I failed as a mother!
** In that same episode, Ned giving up his new puppy Baz to Homer as they had been bonding for the whole episode and he starts thinking she loves Homer more. Luckily, Homer gives Baz back to Ned, telling him that he'll be a better owner.
