Tear Jerker / Men in Black: The Series

Go To

  • The end of "The Neuralyzer Syndrome," where the neuralyzed K is "renewing his vows" by saying one last goodbye to his father.
  • The end of "The Inanimate Syndrome" when Agent Aileen leaves.
    J: Fuel fumes really sting the eyes, huh?
    K: ...yeah.
  • The beginning of "The "J" is for James Syndrome" starts off with Jay accidentally going for a joyride in the LTD and getting neuralyzed by the MIB. The worst of it is the fact that as they do it he starts screaming in protest while some agents hold him to keep him from getting away.

  • At the end of "The Quick Clone Syndrome", J creates several Quick Clones to help fight Alpha. In the ensuing battle, one of the Clones is cut in half, and at the end of the battle melts prematurely. The remaining clones actually take a moment to mourn their fellow clone, saying: "When it's your time, it's your time." At the end of the episodes, the clones all decide to spend their remaining lifespan playing basketball together. It's a surprisingly deep look at something the series had until then treated as expendable.
  • The end of "The Endgame Syndrome Part, 2", where all the people of Earth learn the truth of aliens and don't freak-out in a mass panic. Only for the MIB agents to neuralize the whole planet because they don't like the idea of losing their jobs. Talk about shallow.

How well does it match the trope?
