    The only moment that makes me cry everytime I see it is the last 5 minutes of 'The Ties That Bind'. I just think it was shot beautifully and the way they have Ryan/Marissa at the end of the driveway and Seth sailing off and Kirsten crying on the bed while Sandy consoles him is heartbreaking.
    Marissas death in 'The Graduates' makes me cry sometimes but not all the time because its more of a shocked/angry feeling that they took her out than a sad one. Cant think of anything else at the moment.

    The only time I ever shed a tear during The OC or any other show was the last few minutes of the final episode. Seeing Ryan walk around having flashbacks and then the montage just made me realize after 4 years my favorite television show ever was over, and it did make me shed a couple of tears.

    ^^Ah yes, that moment makes me feel the same way sometimes. Esp. with the Patrick Park song, I love it and its beautiful, but a bit depressing.

    I'm a guy so I don't want to say I cry, but I get lots of lumps in my throat and dust in my eyes during The O.C. Here are the 8 times it happens the most:

    Marissa breaks down in Chino
    Ryan gets dragged away from Oliver while screaming "Stay away from her!"
    Ryan and Marissa meet for the first time
    Ryan and Marissa sit by the pool hoping everything is going to be ok, while the camera zooms out, only to move back in again and show their doubt
    Seth proclaims his love for Summer with Patrick Park on the background
    Ryan picks Marissa up in The Escape
    Anna says goodbye
    The first season finale where everything is just so sad it makes me want to lay down and wait for death (not really, but I find myself extremely depressed after watching it, luckily there's season 2)

    this is my favorite show ever and i cant believe its coming up on its anniversary death. i feel the show was taken away way to early. it could have progressed atleast another season. anyways in its short lived 4 seasons there were only a few star struck moments that made me almost tear up and yes 2 moments that made me cry, and yea im a guy sorry to say.

    the ending of the first season really just draws so many downfalls mad me feel pretty down.

    the spider man episode, rainy day i believe. the signs that summer gets like the small boy and then she ditching water polo for seth was trully heartwarming and made me want to shed, but didnt.

    the ending of seaso 3, marissas death. the hole build up of her being able to nicely say goodbye to everyone was so centimental and when ryan was comforting in here arms was when i first shed a single tear for this show.

    the ending of season 4, the ends not near its here. the moments ryan re visits the past in the last 10 minutes made me pretty sad in knowing that my favorite show is done, thats the second and only time i shed a tear or two.
