Heartwarming: Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

  • The entirety of the opening narration:
    Spirit: The story that I want to tell you, cannot be found in a book. They say the history of the West was written from the saddle of a horse... but it's never been told from the heart of one. Not till now. I was born here, in this place that would come to be called "The Old West". But to my kind, the land was ageless. It had no beginning, and no end. No boundary between earth and sky. Like the wind in the Buffalo grass, we belonged here... we would always belong here. They say the mustang is the Spirit of the West. Whether that West was won or lost in the end, you'll have to decide for yourself. But the story I want to tell you is true. I was there. And I remember... I remember the sun and the sky, and the wind calling my name, in a time when wild horses ran free.
    • Without even watching the film, try and read the quote while listening to the accompanying soundtrack "Homeland" without getting chills. Not an easy task.
  • If the whole "Horsey" scene with the little Lakota toddler and Spirit doesn't make you go "d'awwww", you obviously sold your soul for a bag of peanuts.
  • Spirit finally letting Little Creek ride him. It doubles as a Crowning Moment of Awesome as he allows him in order for them to escape the Colonel's army together.
  • Spirit reuniting with Esperanza at the end, to fitting music.
    Now I know it's true
    My every road leads to you
    And in the hour of darkness
    Your light gets me through.
    • The understatedness of said reunion. It's like she always knew he'd be back.
