one scene that gets me every time; how about *you*?

That last scene in "Babe". You know, where the little pig has finished expertly and kindly guiding the sheep through all the actions of the trial while the farmer stands there with a look of amazed satisfaction on his face ("what do you know, the pig *can* do it")?

And then the gate closes in slow motion, and right at the click the crowd explodes in cheers, and everyone is happy, and the farmer's wife is happy, and the announcers are shocked, and the little pig gets all perfect scores?

And then, the pig is standing next to the farmer and farmer looks down and smiles and says "that'll do, pig"? Much as one says nice and loving words to a child who has just done something wonderful?

Gets me every time. I'm getting teary-eyed up just thinking about it. I'm such a softie for stuff like that. Side effect of parenting, and all that...

What scene gets *you* every time, especially one that you never expected? (and believe me, I never thought "Babe" would get me like that)
