All of that is sad enough on its own, but it's Romano's reaction that really does me in. He's always cold, rude, arrogant, and a huge ass, and you think he's just going to shrug it off like, 'well, these things happen, patients die' after he tells Corday to stop shocking Lucy's heart, but then he flips the instrument tray over and starts again because he doesn't want to believe it's the end."—sass2511 17.

On NYPD Blue, when Bobby died after his heart transplant: ABC "[I] cried my eyes out."—jjjwhite532 20. On Dance Academy, when Sammy died suddenly: ABC1 "Nothing breaks my heart quite like when Sammy in Dance Academy dies. He was doing so well and got everything he was working toward. But all of their reactions, especially after the next few episodes, hurt so bad."—dontbedaft01 21. And finally, on Farscape, when Aeryn died: Sci-Fi Channel "I just have to mention Farscape. The scenes where Aeryn died, and her funeral immediately following. Legitimately the only times I've shed tears over a fictional character. The whole sequence was so incredibly sudden and impactful.
