Seriously, stop messing with his story. It was beautifully tragic, then you retconned it in the movie for some godawful reason, and now you're messing with it again?

The best was when Hermes was helping the professy find missing links, he found another one of Fry's dogs, but to spare us all this internet fawning over a dog he threw it away.

"And here's something! Uh oh ... it's another one of Fry's dogs." - Hermes
"You find something, Hermes?" - Fry
"Uh. No." - Hermes, throws it away.

The only reason they keep revisiting it is because they think it's popular with their legion of fans who do nothing but pretend to cry when talking about it, "oh my so dusty!". No one cried.

That was a goofy retcon, but it took away the sadness for me.

Yes, it was a tragedy when the artist stopped drawing the dog.

Seconded. "Luck of the Fryrish" brought me a hell of a lot closer than Seymour's episode (but I do love both). The episode that almost brings happy tears to my eyes every time is "Leela's Homeworld" and the ending montage of them protecting her as she's growing up. I think it's the combination of that and the song "Baby Love Child".

I agree with that, in terms of pulling the heart strings I felt more when he learned the truth of his brother, but really, no crying. No one cries, we're adults, raised by stern parents who thought any sign of emotion was weakness and worthy only of derision, so to actually show emotion is painful to us... right? Right guys?!

Is there a 'things that make a person sad' limit?  Like, if someone accidentally lets themselves be moved by a painting, will they just giggle when they walk by a baby being raped?

He's not reunited with his dog. That's a flash back scene. LOOK AT THE BACKGROUND.

Geesh. Idiots.

I haven't been too keen on the new episodes, but the bit with Zoidberg and the monster made me laugh.

I'll admit it - I cried.  I have cried at that episode more than once, even though I know what is coming.  I refuse to watch it anymore.

There are very few things that make me cry (I listed it off at work the other day - the end of "Moulin Rouge", two scenes in "Big Fish", and that episode of "Futurama.")  But that gets me every time.   And I pride myself on being a chick who rarely cries.

Yes, there are plenty of real-life sad things, such as people's pet dogs dying.  Which is probably the root of why anyone gets emotional about this episode.  Movies and books aren't real either, yet they make people cry all the time, and no one gives them shiat for it.  It's not a sign that people are stupid that they're crying, it's the sign that the people who created that episode are talented artists.  It's easy to make people laugh and jump at scary things, but getting people to cry at a drawing of a dog takes real talent.

What the hell's the difference between tearing up at a cartoon and tearing up at a bunch of live-action actors pretending? I don't do either because I'm a real man, of course, but just asking

This is why I freak out before seeing anything Pixar. Took forever for my husband to get me to watch Cars, cause I was all "oh hell no, I do NOT want to cry."

serpent_sky: two scenes in "Big Fish"

Lemme guess...the scene where he rushes his father from the hospital to release him in the river, and the scene where the guy dies taking a sh$t, right?

Those get me every single time.

Technically, the first half of season 7 began in June 2012. This will be the second half. That's almost a year with no new episodes. Why not just simplify and call each 13-episode run a season? And of course, by stretching the season out this long, those who don't have cable have to wait even longer for DVD sets or legal streaming. Grrrr.

Me too. I can't watch Luck of the Fryrish with other people, not because of the tears, but because of the raging hard-on that accompanies them. It weirds people out.

"Luck of the Fryish" still gets to me. Every. Single. Time. I have a brother, and growing up with him was kind of tough, what with our own sibling rivalry going on. I can relate to Fry (even though I'm the older brother) and the ending of this episode nails brotherly love in a way I haven't seen before or since. My brother and I aren't terribly close, but one day I hope we can get there. This episode gives me hope that no matter what happens, we still love each other.

When people hear "Don't You Forget About Me" they often think of Breakfast Club. I think of this episode.

I wouldn't say it's my favorite Futurama episode, but I will say it is my favorite scene.  There's something extremely satisfying about taking the last minute of a half hour cartoon and just going extremely melancholy.
 
2013-02-05 04:32:05 PM  
Man, I thought I was dead inside. Some of you guys are hardcore Internet tough guys for sure.

/yes I cried the first time I saw this episode...I don't watch it when it comes on in reruns
//you don't like the show? You've never had a dog? Ok I can see how the episode didn't make you cry...but if you didn't think it was sad you might be incapable of feeling human emotion and should stay away from firearms

my brother in law stormed out of the theater sobbing and shouting 'fark you pixar! fark you for making me cry inside the first five minutes of the movie!'

which was pretty dang shocking, because he is NOT the emotional type.

The often overlooked thing about that episode is how many great lines Farnsworth and Bender have. It's also one of the funniest episodes.

I call the 3 the Trilogy of Tears, because among them, one of them is guaranteed to make even a hard heart cry. Different people get touched in different ways, but between a touching coda to a sibling rivialry, discovering that the parents you never knew loved you and followed you every day of your life, and discovering that a loving friend stayed loyal, even though you made a decision to let him be himself, one of those is going to get you right in the heart.

I never knew about the first 5 minutes of Up, so I just watched it online. I'm not usually one to cry at movies, but there was something in my ... Oh hell, I cried like a little girl.
