Which "Funny" TV And Movie Moments Are Actually Sad?

How can other people laugh at this?!

My fellow empaths, our time has come! I want you to share the random movie or TV moments that are supposed to be funny but actually make you really, really sad.


Maybe you know full well that the scenes with Milton in Office Space are supposed to be comedic gold, but you can't watch them without feeling so, so sorry for him.

Or perhaps you absolutely hate that they always put the laugh track behind Phoebe describing her past struggles in Friends, because your heart just swells for her.

Phoebe saying "When I first came to the city, I was 14. My mom had just killed herself and my stepdad was back in prison" and the audience laughs like crazy

Or, maybe you're just like me and could never understand why everyone always laughed when Gretchen Wieners described the "hoop earrings incident" in Mean Girls.

Poor Gretchen deserved better!

Whatever it is, share it in the comments. Tell us which "funny" movies and TV moments make you unbelievably sad and why you feel that way. We'll feature your responses in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post.
