Tear Jerker / Enemy Mine

Go To
"Don't die on me, Jerry!"

  • The death of Davidge's co-pilot Wooster in the opening.
    "Will... when you see Mercheson, just don't call her 'the white balloon' anymore; it hurts her feelings. And don't let the guys call her that... I'm really tired..."
  • The last 15 minutes of the film is sure to evoke tears, especially when Davidge finds Zammis, and when Davidge's name is included in the family roll call as "Uncle".
    • Sadly the scene where Davidge stands and recites Jeriba's entire family line is cut shorter than in the novella, where it really packs a wallop, but still wets the eyes.
  • Jerry's Death by Childbirth halfway through the film (pictured).
  • "I wish I was not a Drac!"
  • Zammis witnessing for itself the Scavenger's cruelty and shedding a Single Tear.
