Tear Jerker: Treasure Planet
The scene with the song "I'm Still Here" accompanied by images of Jim's father leaving him and his mother. Especially the one where Jim runs down the stairs in the morning to find him mother crying then in desperation runs outside to where his father is taking off on a ship and he tries to get to it before it takes off but fails. The sequence was done beautifully.
James stacking plates and overhearing his mother fretting over him; the guilt and frustration with himself is obvious, and anyone who's ever seen their parent at their wits' end over you...
The part where Silver encourages Jim after the boy thinks he has royally screwed up and caused the death of one of the crewmembers.
Silver: Now you listen to me, James Hawkins... ya got the makings of greatness in ya. But ya gotta take the helm and chart your own course! Stick to it, no matter the squalls! And when the time comes, ya get to really test the cut of your sails and show what you're made of... well, I hope I'm there... catching some o' the light comin' off ya that day..."
The look on Jim's face when he overhears Silver denying that he cares for Jim and is only pretending to keep Jim off of the pirates' tail...
Jim's monologue right before Silver comforts him.
Don't you get it? I screwed up! I thought for two seconds, I thought I could do something right!
The scene where Silver leaves. The whole speech he gave about why he needs Jim to take Morph, when really he's talking about himself is emotional, then after a certain point both characters are sniffling and concealing tears right along with the audience. The part where Silver flies away to freedom and lets out the most joyful laugh ever is the final straw.
After the chewing out Jim gives Silver where he throws back Silver's words at him and tells him that he'll make sure Silver never sees one drubloon of his treasure, the two begin yelling at each other before Silver threatens to use the ship's cannons to blast him, Doppler, Amelia, and B.E.N. to kingdom come if Jim doesn't give him the map by tomorrow morning. He turns to leave until he notices Morph hovering beside Jim and orders him to "hop to it." When Morph remains beside Jim, Silver yells, "NOW!" at Morph, only succeeding in scaring Morph, who nervously hides behind Jim's shoulder. Silver and Jim then storm back to their respective bases, while Silver momentarily stops to look back regretfully.
That look on Mr. Arrow's face as Scroop gleefully cuts his life-line. Poor shmuck...
