I’m an emotional person. Even more so when I’m PMSing. Whenever I watch the video for Here Comes Goodbye or Mirrors, total waterworks.

At the end of last night’s Futurama epsiode, when Fry is talking to his mom… oh man. I tried to hold back the tears, I really did. Needless to say, I lost that battle.

What was the last video, television show, or movie that made you cry?
