Tear Jerker: Charlotte's Web

  • Charlotte's death after the fair through natural causes, and how bittersweet it is.
    • In fact, this was so sad that the person who did the audiobook had to rerecord that passage of text 17 times because he kept breaking down.
  • Wilbur's life is safe and he can live out the rest of his days without a worry to be had, but without the one person who gave him all of this.
  • Charlotte did a hell of a lot for Wilbur. Her reasoning? Because he was her friend. She never asked for anything in return, helping him was enough to make her satisfied with her life.
  • Her death specifically in the 1973 adaptation. Charlotte actually uses the very last of her energy to edge herself out of sight on top of the wooden rafter, so Wilbur doesn't see her die.
  • Fern convincing her dad to spare Wilbur's life.
  • Fern saying goodbye to Wilbur when he goes to live with her uncle, as well as Wilbur's reaction when he's told by the sheep they plan on raising him to become dinner.
  • Wilber's reaction to most of Charlotte's children leaving him after they're born.
