* The scene where Truman and Marlon are sitting on the bridge and Truman's talking about his fears and suspicions. Getting his lines fed by Christof, Marlon tells him to trust him, that he would walk into moving traffic for him and then pauses before saying that he would never lie to Truman. You can tell from his face that he feels terrible about doing this to Truman. Similarly, look closely at Truman's face. He's not crying because he's so moved by Marlon's speech, he's crying because if "everyone" is in on it, ''Marlon is, too''. [[EtTuBrute AKA, his best friend since he was seven years old.]] ''Sheesh''.

* Sylvia gets forcibly removed from the studio after giving Truman the only genuinely romantic moment he's ever had. The actor taking her tries to smooth it over (in vain) by telling Truman she's schizophrenic, and "brings all her boyfriends here." Geez, rip the guy's heart out, why don't you?

* Truman in generally is a walking sad individual: Figuring out [[spoiler:that everyone around him (aside from Marlon and Sylvia) ''don't'' care for him and are all in this whole charade of a simple big set]]. And let's not even get ''started'' [[spoiler: with how much Christof and his "parents" manipulate him and enforce his fear of water]].

Truman loses it when he realizes Laura is in on it, scaring her into pulling a kitchen knife on him and telling him ''he's'' the one going crazy.

* When Truman [[spoiler: abruptly crashes into the wall of the studio]]. Feeling that he is trapped forever and understanding how his whole life was a lie, he begins to break down in tears as he tries to [[spoiler: punch through the wall]] in a futile manner. The lack of sound in this particular shot makes it just that much more soul-crushing.
