I cried at the end of Jurassic Bark. Many other episodes have made me think for a long while and dwell on the message (The Sting, Luck of the Fryish, The Devils Hands are Idle Playthings) but Jurassic Bark is the only episode that has actually made me cry.

Episodes that made me cry...

"Brannigan Begin Again"-- Zapp cries as he is discharged from the DOOP.  I literally started crying as well the first time I saw it (and that was when I used to hate him!)  I still cry when I see that part!  Just thinking about it is getting me choked up!  cry

"The Sting"-- when Fry dies and Leela suffers so much... mainly when Fry dies.  I also wanted to cry when Leela said "Goodbye, waking world."

"The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings"-- after it ended I cried because it was the last Futurama episode and I was really going to miss it.

"Luck of the Fryrish"-- moving, but not really a tearjerker.

And about JB, I haven't seen it for like, three years and don't remember it at all.  So, in conclusion, 1) the scene in "Brannigan Begin Again" with Zapp crying made me cry the most, 2) I know... I'm weird, 3) if I remembered "Jurassic Bark" I would feel your emotions for that episode in particular.

"Devils Hands" and "Luck of the Fryrish" were the closest to setting me off(Only the end of Ghost and the last episode of Cheers did that!)  cry   cry

I have never cried over a futurama ep (and I've even seen The Sting, which I did find very touching and semi-disturbing). It just doesn't happen to me... :::Shrugs:::

I've never actually cried at a Futurama episode, but the most emotional episode for me would have to be Jurassic Bark.  I don't even like watching it.  The other episodes I really found touching are The Sting and Luck of the Fryrish.

I did tear up on "Luck of the Fryrish" and "The Sting" but I almost can't watch "Time Keeps On Slipping" all the way through; that ending is just heartbreaking.

Kicked your ass.

I so cried at the end of Luck of the Fryrish, but that seems like the only time I cried. The ending for Time Keeps On Slipping was really sad though.

I never cried, but "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings" came to close to making me cry. Not only because of Fry and Leela finally getting together (at least I think they did), but like athena1999 said, it was the last episode of 'Futurama'.

Me neither, I've never cried at an episode. But I think I could've done it if I'd watched "Jurassic Bark" alone the first time I saw it. I'm always embarrassed when I'm with other people and something I see on TV moves me and make me want to cry. So I just hold it in, which is what I did when I saw that episode.

The Sting is also very sad, but when I watched that one I was just in shock at Fry's death...

Nah, you're not (unless I'm weird too. Maybe I am). I always get this tear-feeling inside me when I see that scene.

The most emotional episode in my opinion was Love and Rocket. It was an alright episode (the talking Planet Express ship got annoying), and I think that is why the ending caught me off guard so much. I don't let that happen much. I usually see where a joke is going, but Fry sacrificing himself for Leela and then her reading the heart hit me like a hammer. "You leave me breathless." It is not possible for them to have done a better job. What amazing writing. Not to mention the look on Fry's face...

I had seen The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings on CN before, but had no idea that it was the last episode until I recieved and completed my Futurama collection. I didn't cry for any other, but I cried at the end of this one. Briefly. What? Don't look at me like that! It was just because I knew what to expect, and I was able to appreciate it as the last episode.

Jurassic Bark just left me feeling devistated. In a good way, that is. I immediatly rewatched it with commentary on to see what they had to say about devistating me. I am not even a dog lover, it was just so sad.

Luck of the Fryish got me incredibly close to crying, and so did The Devils hands are idle playthings and Jurrasic Bark. I have never actually let myself cry at anything meant for entertainment, that's just embarressing.

Incredibly close? It made me cry pretty good. I can understand The Devils Hands are Idle Playthings, but Jurrasic Bark? What made everyone cry?

Jurassic Bark has me crying in the last few minutes of it.  I can't help bawling though the second half of Leela's Homeworld (everytime I see it).  Same with Luck of the Fryish. I teared up the first time I saw Time Keeps on Slipping as well.  Of course, I cry during sappy commercials...

I also came very close to crying when I saw "Luck Of The Fryrish", and "Leela's Homeworld".
I still do. That just shows you what excellent writing 'Futurama' had. (Well, at least in my opinion.)

Parasites Lost came close, as well as The Sting and Love and Rocket.

Leela's Homeworld was the only one that actually left me in tears. In fact, I think it's possible thats it's the only cartoon series thats ever managed to do that. Well done Matt Groening.

Neither did I, though I can see why others did. It is sad, but it just didn't have the same effect on me as any one of Fry's emotional moments.

Kicked your ass.

I never cried over the emotional episodes when I saw them first, except Luck of the Fryrish--simply because there were other people in the room. But I was all alone when I saw LotF, so...

As for The Sting. Whoa. I saw that one first with my class a year ago, during our lunch break and we watched it together in our room. Afterwards, there was a *complete* silence. Until then, I had mostly seen Futurama as the crazy funny show (a la produc.season 1 and 2) but The Sting caught me completely off guard. And my entire class actually, we sat there for a few minutes until the teacher burst in and broke the moment. It was weird. (I'm sure I would've had to run to the bathroom to let it out if he hadn't come!)

But The Sting left me emotionally shocked and thoughtful for days afterwards. Well done Futurama! The only show ever that has had that effect on me.

Hmmm. Where to start. Ah, got it. "Jurassic Bark" is probably my pick for saddest, even though I, like a few others, am not a dog person. "Time Keeps on Slipping" was the first real 'sad' episode that I saw. (Keep in mind that I didn't watch the whole series in order, though.) The first time I saw "The Sting," I was so in shock from seeing Fry impaled, that it took me 'til the second time I watched it to get a real emotional response. Meh. (And I liked Love and Rocket, too. *runs for cover*)

The Sting hit me like that as well. I was watching it alone but i also had that long moment of silence before i had to rewind the tape and watch it again. Needless to say i watched the end scene so often the tape started to skip. It's still my most fav moment of the series.

I shed exactly one tear at the end of The Sting. Then I cracked up, because I didn't think that happened outside of boring movies about football.

TKOS is sad with fry at the end, i always feel mushy at the end of Leelas Homeworld when they're playing baby love child,the sting is sad, the end of L&R is so cute, TDHAIP is sad (it was the last ep., thats why)but the one that made me cry was Jurassic Bark. I got it on DVD, and i happened to see it the day my pet died. Seeing the end with seymour waiting got me teary eyed, and then finally i silently cried.(ok, i said it, so now Ill be mean for a while. You there, shut up! tongue )

Well... I rarely cry at moveis, but when something emotional is happening I have a very large (and quite uncomfortable   wink ) lump in my throat...
As for Futurama I must say this is a really incredible show... I can't count the moments I was sad or moved by it but every time I watch "The Sting" i have this strange felling... Especially at the scene when Fry confesses his love to Leela and then crying he asks her to wake up... It's so emotional

The other favorites are of course The Luck of The Fryish, Jurrasic Bark, the oxygene scene in Love &Rocket etc. etc.

I could just go on forever mentioning which part of the ep moved me, but the thing is that after watching the series for couple of times i thought "Man... Fry is the most tragic person i know"... Well, just look at it from a dramatic POV (skiping the comedy in futurama) - He has been ripped from his life, family, "everyone he ever knew or cared about" to a complete different world... in fact most of the main characters are tragic (to name only Leela, Bender, Amy and Kif). This are the reasons that there are many 'shippy' (can anyone tell me why they are called that?) fics. Because of the possibility to involve characters in tragic situations (for eg. Flowers in the Window).

But i have to end now because this is going to turn into one big offtopic...

Yeah, you're probably right... whatever you've been talking about

Relationship -> ship -> shipper, shippy
Shippy describes a fic that focuses primarily on relationships between characters.  Shippers tend to be those who write or enjoy such fics or such elements within the show itself.

Never actually cried, but I did get emotional at the end of The Sting. (In fact, I enjoyed that episode so much that I watched my recording of it a lot, even when a Yu-Gi-Oh! commercial got spliced in during Fry's funeral. Of course, now I have the DVDs, so I can watch it without hearing about what's new from the world of Yu-Gi-Oh!. I also plan to try to get Baskin-Robbins to put a framegrab from the end of that episode on my birthday cake.)

Love and Rocket is another one that gets to me. Namely the oxygen scene.

And, of course, The Devil's Hands... was emotional, because we all knew that it would be the last episode.

But yeah, The Sting evoked the strongest emotional response. Yeah, I'm a shipper.

I have to admit I got a lump in my throat and a tad misty when on the commentary for Love's Labours Lost in Space, the mentioned how Phil Hartman was killed only a couple weeks after auditioning for Zapp.

The ending of The Why of Fry is so sweet. The shipper in me gets all warm and fuzzy. Maybe not a tearjerker per se, but it's emotional and cute  smile
