** A lot of people believe that Buck was a {{jerkass}} for this, but there's another heartbreaking implication. Namely, Buck's expression is a heartbroken, apologetic one, making his "No son, I don't" line seem more like he actally means "Sorry son, I can't" rather than shooting the chance of the truth down.

** A lot of people believe that It's very easy to interpret Buck was as a {{jerkass}} for this, but there's another heartbreaking implication. Namely, Buck's expression is a heartbroken, apologetic one, making his "No son, I don't" line seem more like he actally means "Sorry son, I can't" rather than shooting the chance of the truth down.

* Chicken Little wishing to follow in his father Buck's footsteps as a baseball star, but Buck tells him not to set his hopes so high. Trust me, it's sadder than it sounds.
** Later on, Chicken Little looking at father dog playing with his son. He just wants his father to be proud of him and he feels he will never be good enough to him. This is pretty much awful to any kid... *[[MoodWhiplash cue next scene]]*

* A sad moment near the end: Buck has chased down his son so that they can escape the town as it's being overrun, but Chicken Little interrupts him with an explanation of how they can stop the AlienInvasion. Buck, understandably confused by the abruptness and his son's MotorMouth, says, "Huh?" Chicken Little yanks his hand away and says bitterly, "[[WhamLine Never mind. You wouldn't believe me anyway.]]" As he runs off into the chaotic danger zone the town has become, Buck yells after him. It's understandable with [[ParentalNeglect what's been happening the whole movie]], but it ''is'' possible to feel sorry for both of the characters.

* The very brief moment everyone has when it looks like Chicken Little struck out at the game. Everyone is sadden and disappointed. Makes one wonder what would've done and/or said if they really had lost.
