Heartwarming / Heathers

The Film

  • Veronica inviting Betty Finn to play croquet. It's the only time she looks like she's genuinely enjoying herself.
  • In a weird way, seeing the pictures of Heather Duke playing with Martha Dunnstock at summer camp. She wasn't always such a bitch.
  • The end, where Veronica invites Martha to sit the prom out and rent some movies together.

The Musical

  • "I can't promise no more Heathers, high school may not ever end. Still, I miss you. I'd be honored, if you'd let me be your friend..."
  • "If no one loves me now, someday somebody will."
  • Veronica rescuing Martha from being humiliated at Ram's party by the Heathers.
  • This exchange, at the climax:
    Veronica: I don't deserve to live.
    J.D.: I... respectfully... disagree.
    • Which then leads into "I Am Damaged," which is mostly heartbreaking, but we do have this line: "I am damaged. Far too damaged. But you're not beyond repair."
  • The bridge of "Dead Girl Walking:"
    And you know, you know, you know,
    it's 'cause you're beautiful.
    You say you're numb inside, but I can't agree.
    So the world's unfair;
    keep it locked out there!
    In here, it's beautiful.
    Let's make this beautiful!
  • When Heather McNamara tries to commit suicide and Veronica averts it, ending with a hug.
    Veronica: If you were happy everyday of your life you wouldn't be human. You'd be a game show host.
    Heather: Thanks for coming after me.
    Veronica: You're welcome.
  • A meta example: J.D.'s actor from the movie, Christian Slater, visiting the cast of Heathers the Musical. You didn't know you needed it, but you did.
