      In my opinion, here are my top 15 "Moesha" episodes that have VERY emotional scenes:
      15. Talk of the Town
      14. Unappreciated Interests
      13. That's my mama
      12. Scary Marriage
      11. Break It Down
      10. Mother's Day
      9. All This and Turkey Too
      8. Mayhem at the Jam
      7. Pilot
      6. Hakeem's Birthday
      5. D-Money loses his Patience
      4. Hello, what's this?
      3. Family Affair
      2. Secrets & Lies
      1. My Mom's Not an Ottoman

      These were the only episodes I found that have scenes that are very sad, dramatic and completely emotional. And this episode right here, was #1.

      I'm sorry, I'm sorry, scratch that! I mean, the top most 16 emotional scenes from Moesha. "Body Language" is one of them.

      Sorry again, the top 17. There's also "Saving Private Rita".
