    19 Movie And TV Lines That People Still Think About Because Of How Much It Affected Them Emotionally

    "Pretty sure hearing that line caused fireworks to go off in my head. It was like someone had turned the lights back on. I had a total epiphany."

    Recently, after sharing how much that "grief" line from WandaVision affected me, I asked the BuzzFeed Community to name a line from a movie or TV show that they still think about because of how emotional it made them.

    People shared some super emotional scenes, and I teared up at a lot of their answers. (And then again, when I actually watched the scenes).

    Here are just some of their responses:

    1. In Definitely, Maybe, after she realizes her parents aren't getting back together, Maya, who was hoping for a "happy ending," runs to her dad who comforts her by saying:

    "You."

    2. In Doctor Who, after Amy finds out that Vincent van Gogh still took his life even after his encounter with her and the Doctor, the Doctor says:

    "And we definitely added to his pile of good things."

    3. In the The OA, when Prairie is trying to get Homer to remember her, she says:

    "That is why I cannot give up on you. I will not give up on you."

    4. In Dopesick, after Rick and Randy accept a deal where the Purdue Pharma executives plea to misdemeanors (and get no criminal charges), Bridget says:

    "Here's to the ones who fight the battles. Even if they don't win the war."

    5. In Labyrinth, after Jareth says, "Just fear me, love me, do as I say, and I will be your slave," Sarah responds:

    "You have no power over me."

    6. In Amadeus, when fellow composer Salieri is telling a priest how frustrated he is that God gave Mozart musical talent, but not him, he says:

    "Like a lust in my body! And then deny me the talent?"

    7. In Casper, after Casper becomes temporarily human, he slow dances with Kat and asks:

    "Can I keep you?"

    8. In Fleabag, after Fleabag feels her life spin out of control, she says:

    "Or I'm completely f**king alone. Which isn't f**king funny."

    9. In Perks of Being a Wallflower, as Charlie witnesses the unhealthy relationships around him and as he struggles with his depression, he asks his teacher, "Why do nice people choose the wrong people to date?" His teacher responds:

    "We accept the love we think we deserve."

    10. In Precious, after she finds out she's HIV positive, and her teacher encourages her to write, Precious cries out:

    "I'm tired, Ms. Rain."

    11. In Scrubs, after his friends judge him for trying to date the wife of a coma patient, J.D. yells at them for constantly complaining about their own relationships, ending with:
