That looks like a combination of Conversation in the Main Page and Speculative Troping; at the very list, the indentation is bad. I don't think it's worth keeping, but since I'm not that familiar with Star Wars, it might be worth getting more input on whether there's anything that can be merged with the first bullet point.

I'd nix all three sub-entries completely. As GastonRabbit points out they're just Natter, and stuff like "it's an even bigger Tearjerker because of [external factor X]" almost never adds anything to the example.

Not gonna steal your thunder here, though.

There's a lot of Natter all over that page— I took an edit pass at it last week for organizing and grammar, but didn't get into the Natter since I was nervous about getting heavy-handed with my edits. I say go for it!

I've cut the entries with a link to this discussion.

Questions about moments pages can also be taken up here.

Thanks for taking care of it, gjjones. Tearjerkers should be moments that are sad in their own right, not moments that are sad because they aren't what somebody'd hoped they'd be.
