-->"I am not well adjusted. And more often than not, I am barely keeping it together. I'm constantly texting and there's no one at the other end. I'm just a grown man who can't even look his own friends in the eye for too long because I'm afraid that they'll see that I am broken. So you get credit for that. One time when I was in seventh grade, I told everybody in school that I had appendicitis. I wanted someone to worry about me. But when Beth Brennen asked to see the scar, I didn't want to get found out so I took mom's scissors and I made one. It hurt like hell. But it was worth is because I got 17 cards and I still keep them in a box under my bed 22 years later, because it proves that someone at some point cared about me. You wanna see the scar? So. You get credit for that too. This is me."

Added DiffLines:

* The way Jeff and Annie leave things in the last episode is at once perfect and absolutely heartbreaking. Jeff ''finally'' admits how he feels about her, but also admits - to himself and her - that he doesn't fit into her life right now.
-->'''Jeff:''' I let you go, Annie. With my hands, and my head. The heart - which cynics say is code for penis - wants what it wants. But I let you go.
-->'''Annie:''' The others are coming. I think... you should kiss me goodbye or you might regret it for the rest of your life.
-->'''Jeff:''' What about you?
-->'''Annie:''' (''wryly'') I'll regret the kiss for a week. I'm in my twenties. Who cares?

-->'''Jeff:''' We've been playing this game for a few hours. But you? You've been playing it your whole life.
*** Followed by Pierce's "You took all his crap and you never even got to take his name. But now it's time for your reward, brother."

* In "Re-pilot", Troy signing Jeff's class action suit against Greendale. It's absolutely heartbreaking to see the show's most optimistic and positive character just break and see things as hopeless, and unlike Troy's past breakdowns, it isn't PlayedForLaughs
** Troy calling Zach Braff out for only appearing on the first six episodes of the ninth season of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' after all ''Scrubs'' did for him. It's likely a nod to Donald Glover leaving the show before the airing of season five, so the line is certain to become HarsherInHindsight once Troy's character eventually leaves.

** There's also Pierce's final messages to Jeff and Abed. After the SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}} of his words to the rest of the group, it's [[MoodWhiplash kind of shocking to hear that]][[spoiler: he genuinely didn't like Abed and Jeff, even though they'd done as much for him as the rest of the group.]]


** At the end of the episode, the two of them both want to keep fighting, because they're convinced it will be the last thing they ever do together. They would rather beat each other with pillows indefinitely than go their separate ways, but they don't see how they can just go back to being friends.

Turns out as a kid his father replaced him in a Hawthorne Wipes commercial, and in an outtake where Pierce tried to be in the commercial, his father says ''to his face'' the replacement seems like a better son than him.

* Pierce's home life in a fridge way. Before his mother died in the third ep of season 2 it was just him and her with maybe a few visits from his JerkAss father who passed down his prejudices. His seven marriages could be just his desperation to not be alone but for many reasons the marriages couldn't work, his "Super Fertility" is just a euphemism for being infertile (Which may relate to why he sees Jeff and Annie as his faux son and daughter), his friend Troy got to live in his mansion in season 2 for free before moving out (Since Troy's an idiot he had no idea that he was addicted to pills until it was too late) and didn't express much gratitude and from the season 2 finale that summer and most school breaks are just days to wait until the new semester.

* The end of season 2. Pierce makes a big speech about how he's so afraid people will reject him, that he mistreats anyone who gets close to him, [[SelfFulfillingProphecy which is what causes people to reject him,]] and how Greendale was the first place to ever accept him, and that this study group is the one that put up with him the longest.

* Kind of a fridge tear jerker: Abed seems pretty upset (for Abed) in ''Regional Holiday Music,'' and he's desperate enough to spend Christmas with his friends that he resorts to recruiting them for the glee club pageant. It seems funny at first - and then you really ''look'' at him in certain scenes, like right before he and Mr. Rad start singing, and when he's apologizing to the rest of the group and saying he'll see them all after break, and he looks/sounds like he's as near to actually crying as he's ever gotten.

Added DiffLines:

* The entire "Mixology Certification" episode is pretty poignant for anyone who's struggled with alcoholism, or knows someone who has.

Added DiffLines:

* Jeff trying to come up with something that inspires genuine passionate emotion within him by looking at his friends in "Basic Sandwich". The one thing that works is when he's looking at Annie and remembering the first time they came up with the "milady"/"milord" in-joke way back in "Football, Feminism, and You". Made ''very'' sad by the fact that Britta (at this point Jeff's fiancée) is also in the room but elicits no particular emotional reaction from him, while Annie has just made it clear she's given up on trying to make their relationship go somewhere and is just letting him deal with his choices, even if they're bad for him. The saddest part, though, is that Jeff refuses to divulge what he thought about - leaving Annie still under the impression that Jeff is basically indifferent to her, Jeff presumably having taken Annie's refusal to chase him any more to heart, and only the audience having realised that maybe Jeff actually ''is'' as hung up on Annie as she has been on him all this time.

Added DiffLines:

* Annie's critical take on herself and her relationship with Jeff in "Virtual Systems Analysis", after Abed correctly deduces that she's still hung up on that one kiss they shared nearly two years ago:
--> '''Abed (as Annie#2)''': Why are you blowing our magic moment with Jeff?
--> '''Annie''': It's not magic. It's not even real.
--> '''Annie#2''': But we love Jeff.
--> '''Annie''': No, we don't. We're just in love with the idea of being loved. And if we can teach a guy like Jeff to do it, we'll never be unloved. So we keep running the same scenario over and over hoping for a different result.
