The scene in the rain where Tommy finally snaps and considers leaving Dil behind in the forest with the monkeys. Probably the most dramatic scene in the history of the series, and quite impressive when you consider that this is a one year old and his newborn brother, and yet it can still send shivers down anyone's spine and tears down their faces.
- Even more impressive is he's planning on pouring banana-flavored baby food on Dil and leaving him with monkeys, and it somehow manages to make you cry instead of laugh at how how ridiculous it all is.
- What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: The scene is highly reminiscent of the Sacrifice of Isaac.
- And when Dil has his Heel Realization & Tommy recomposes himself and brings him back under the tree. Even the monkeys are close to tears as they sadly look at Tommy & Dil.
Tommy: I'm sorry Dil. It's OK, Dilly. Everything's gonna be ok
- A bit later, as Tommy recovers his watch, he hears Dil's terrified wailing. Tommy tucks Dil in with the blanket singing a similar lullaby from earlier, as he tries make Dil (and himself) not lose hope.
Tommy: Baby, please! Rest your head? Soon we will be home in bed. Until then, I'll protect you like no other. You're okay for a little brother.
