Tear Jerker: Harriet the Spy

  • When Ole Golly leaves. It's done very well in the film too — even if you don't like Rosie O'Donnell, her stalwart face as she leaves, telling Harriet not to laugh or cry, will draw exactly the latter reaction from you.
  • In the film, when Harriet notices that the Crazy-cat-man had all his cats taken away.
    "I will always remember that face. That's the face you make when you really lose something."
    • That's in the book also, when Harrison Withers loses his cats:
      I WILL NEVER FORGET THAT FACE AS LONG AS I LIVE. DOES EVERYBODY LOOK THAT WAY WHEN THEY HAVE LOST SOMETHING? I DONíT MEAN LIKE LOSING A FLASHLIGHT. I MEAN DO PEOPLE LOOK LIKE THAT WHEN THEY HAVE LOST?
