What Film Or TV Moment Has Really Helped You Through Depression?

Let us know about a moment you watch and why it is important to you.

A couple of months ago we asked BuzzFeed readers for TV shows that helped them during their depression. We got so many fantastic responses, like this.

Like "Life's a Happy Song" from The Muppet Movie.

Or this classic scene from Little Miss Sunshine.

Here's the context: Dwayne (Paul Dano) has found out that he's colour-blind, which means that he cannot reach his dream of being a test pilot. Frank (Steve Carrell), his uncle, has experienced depression. They're at the end of a pier while they wait for a nearby beauty pageant to conclude.

It's made me reevaluate how terrible feelings can actually be a catalyst for good things in the long term.

What TV or film moment helps you when you are depressed? And why do you watch it over and over again? Let us know and it might be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post.
