Tear Jerker / Eight Crazy Nights


  • In the film, Adam Sandler's character is an asshole to everybody, even the kindly-yet-eccentric guy who takes him in. Then it's revealed the reason for his behavior is that when he was 12, his parents were killed in a car accident on their way to his basketball game during the winter holidays.
  • Even worse was, after the Intervention song, his reading the note in the empty mall, hearing it in his parents' voices He breaks down in tears, pictured above.
    • Case and point:
    Happy Chanukah, to our wonderful son
    You fill our lives with joy
    You beautiful, twelve year old boy.
  • Long Ago "It all seems so long ago/ Young and happy, don'cha know?"
  • The close of the scene describing Davey's Childhood.
  • Meta: Adam Sandler's father Stan, who voiced Davey's father, died a year before he could see the finished film. On his son's 37th birthday, no less.
