Jurassic Bark. Being a dog lover, the moment I saw Seymour waiting on the street for Fry, knowing he was never going to return, I wept. So sad  frown

Luck of the Fryrish followed by The Sting and Leela's Homeworld a close tie for second.
Having said that, Leela's Homeworld is the only one I felt really, really, touched by when I first saw it. Not to say that I wasn't touched by the other two, of course I was, just the Sting I watched several times and found myself becoming more emotional every time, and it was a while before I realised, or found out the full link between Simple Minds and the rest of the story of LotF. That for me is the most touching.
Jurassic Bark comes somewhere below that. I am a dog lover, yes I was quite touched by it, but obviously it didn't strike that same emotional cord.

 A lot of people here Obviously  but they shouldn't its sad

AND TERAL
DXC was reading from some stupid fan review

1. Umm, obviously a good portion of these posters, note the "I know how sad it is to have a dog die" or "poor Seymour waited for Fry" kinds of posts....

2. Well, duuh. This is the Tearjerkiest Episode Poll, that's why they vote for it. Becasue it's sad.

Instead of putting others' choices down, you could have said why it was a stupid choice.

Really tough call, but I'd have to go for 'The Sting'. The fact that Fry was prepared to lay down his lfe for Leela, and as someone else said, would stay at her side for two weeks, effectively waiting for her to die, well that's gotta be a tearjerker, surely?

Also Billy West and Katey Sagal play this wonderfully.

Of my other choices I'd agree with 'Jurassic Bark', 'Leela's Homeworld', 'Luck of the Fryish' and 'Time keeps slipping'.

Sorry if all these choices make me a wet blanket!

its a joke

and mouse on venus i dont want everyone to be exactly like me at all. dear god what a horrible moody world that would be.

There's no other way to put it other than the fact that I dont see any reason to care for the dog.
Its not so much a criticism of the writing. I mean It was an intresting story and a very funny episode. But then it got really sentimental. emotion can be good but it didn't work for me here. and the fact that everyone worships it just motivates my anger.

And now I've had to repeat myself again

So? Lots of people like Luck Of The Fryrish but I don't. Yet you don't see me shouting at all of them about liking it (anymore).

 The great thing about Futurama is that it has all different kinds of episodes, so if you don't like one episode, there's a diverse range of others to choose from. If you don't like Jurrasic Bark, then fine, but if you keep sniping at others for liking it without being the slightest bit constructive in your crusade then we're all just gonna treat you like the retard you keep pretending to be.

Devil's Hands got my vote. It wouldn't of but I learned that it was the last episode about 5 weeks ago and since then I can't watch the end or the beginning that says see you on some other channel without bursting into tears.

Actually I just realised a flaw in jurrasic bark that I'm amzed slipped by me, and people may have discussed already and come up with a logical awnser to it.

But in a flashback sequence, Seymour actually see's Fry in the croygenic tube. so surley it should be the goal of his life to try and break fry out of there.  Instead of waiting on the street

jurrasic bark, by a long way. the sight of seeing the dog waiting faithfully for his masters return, makes me well up just thinking about it.  cry

seriously I think I must be really stupid for forgetting, why seymour would wait for fry If he's seen him in the cryogenic tube.
I pretty sure seymour knows whats going on.

Are you suggesting that despite an inablity to master things like, say, doorknobs, or the fact that I didn't really throw the stick, dogs know all about cryogenic theory?  Seymour saw Fry in a tube.  He didn't know what the tube was.  So he waited at Panuchi's Pizza for Fry to come back from the tube, because any time Fry went anywhere (ie, a delivery, home, etc.) he always came back to work eventually.

I voted Jurassic Bark. I cried the second time I watched it, which is weird, because I was expecting the ending. I couldn't really enjoy the ep because I knew I was gonna cry.
On a side note, TDHAIP, parasites lost, and The Sting are some of my favorites, but they didn't make me cry.

the weird thing is, everyone seems to care more for the dog in JB, cause he is a dog, than poor Kif that gets mentally harassed by Zapp all the time. Kif is being seriously traumatized here, people!!

I would have said JB originally, simply because that was the episode that I considered to be the saddest.
Changed my mind now... I watched 'Time Keeps On Slipping' last night, and being in a hypothetically similair scenario to Fry right now, I very nearly cried (BTW I just don't cry at films, TV etc.). Also thinking about 'The Sting', it really is quite sweet that Fry cares that much about Leela.

Uh-oh, looks like they're showing Luck of the Fryrish on CN tomorrow. Guess I'll watch it and see if JB is still the greatest tear-jerker.

For me it's Jurassic Bark, closely followed by Luck of the Fryrish.

I'm an animal lover, so seeing that ep the first time really choked me up. It still does now after repeat viewings. I can only watch that ep in certain situations. If I'm happy, its not an ep I can easily watch, because as soon as I've watched it, I'll be feeling pretty down for a long time afterwards  smile

Jurassic Bark would have been sadder if they toned down the music a bit -- it seemed over the top. The end of the song came a little abruptly, too.

Luck of the Fryrish does it everytime -- for one thing, it's and actual person, not just a dog. The music ("Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds) is a great accompaniment, and feels more subdued and mournful than the song from Jurassic Bark.

I think any of the ones listed could get my vote. I'm a softy and really get into the shows, so I've cried in most of those. (Not all, though...) The saddest ones for me are where you see how much Fry loves Leela and how she's so freakin' indifferent! If she wasn't so cool, I wouldn't like her...
