Heartwarming / Saw

  • Any moments between John in his pre-Jigsaw days and Jill are heartwarming enough, his video will and Jill's Gideon tape are stand outs. You can tell that they loved each other very much and what followed was extremely heartbreaking for them.
  • In an odd way, Jigsaw's idealism regarding his methods. They're horrific, but he believes that anyone, murderers, rapists, even the man who, albeit not on purpose, killed his son, can be instantly reformed. He has an odd sort of faith in humanity that many people lack, even if he takes it in entirely the wrong direction.
  • Lawrence and Adam's last minutes together before the former left the bathroom, bleeding from his leg-stump and promising to get help for the two of them, holding onto each other for dear life, is goddamn tear-jerking. It becomes even more powerful when you realize, as Leigh points out in the DVD commentary, that is the only time in the whole film where the two of them in the same shot, causing it to feel very intimate.
    Adam:: We're gonna be okay?
    Lawrence: I wouldn't lie to you.
  • A deleted scene from the third film shows us a kind, Adorkable side of Adam; seeing Amanda in his apartment building, he compliments her hair ( he says it's "very rockstar"), asks her to see his buddy's band, and asks sweetly if he can take her picture, to which she meekly says yes. She even smiles.
  • Saw III: Seeing Eric Matthews put himself through enough pain to make a hardened police veteran cry, in order to escape a trap that was intended to kill him, all in the name of finding and rescuing his son, Daniel. The kicker was the visual of Matthews, feebly limping through the corridors, desperately shouting the name of his son.
  • Saw VI: William deciding to save Emily because she has two kids that she needs to raise. Emily's dialogue during that bit also shows that he's good friends with them.
    Emily: I have two kids... You know them, Will!
