Sam and Teal'c  
Watching the end of Heroes part 2 always kills me, it really is one of the best episodes of television. Everyone's performances are perfect. You can see each character's connection to the other and it really is beautiful. It usually takes me a few minutes after watching it to sort of collect myself because I'm caught halfway in between tearing up and just going: damn.

Now having said that, the scene that always gets to me the most is Sam and Teal'c's scene when he gives her the paper with what he'd say if able to speak at Janet's memorial. You can just see so much respect and love he has for her in his eyes, the way he holds himself, and the softness of his voice. They've been through so much together and he's seen her in every type of situation imaginable, but I think this was the first time he was concerned that Janet's death would be something she needed more than just support to handle. Given that Teal'c chooses his words carefully before speaking them (because words have weight) it means a great deal (to me) that when he gives Sam his words in order to speak for him, for herself, and be their voice.

That make a lick of sense to anyone else but me?

Janet's is the most pointless, pointless death. But very much as those during a war are - there are no great actions, no great final words - just death and loss.

I cannot watch Heroes without crying. On behalf of Janet, so scared as she dies for Cassy, to those left behind to mourn and pick up the pieces of a life cut short.

The memorial scene kills me, even though I never loved the character all that much, It was, as I think was intended, a loss of something everyone expected to be there. And it hurt - far much more than we expected.

Completely agree with you Kaz.
That scene was so poignant.

The one with Daniel sitting in the room he ascended in, where Janet worked so hard to treat him, when the movie guy comes to him. This scene is filled with drama and emotion. Daniel always has been able to make me cry.

But, the scene that gets me the most, is where Hammond is talking to Emmit, the movie guy, and his emotions are getting away from him. Don Davis played this so well, he has me in tears every time.

Re: Completely agree with you Kaz.
i think that had something to do with the fact that davis & teryl rothery were very good friends in real life

That is probably my favorite SG-1 episode, because it is fucking great storytelling. And yeah, Teal'c at the end, giving Sam the gift of his words? Awesome.
