Is visual sobbing alone acceptable, or do we need to hear it as well? I'm asking because one of my favorite scenes was from PBS' "Victoria", where her lady's maid got married to the chef and they went off to set up a hotel. Sadly, the lady's maid died of cholera from drinking a medicine made with cholera-tainted water. There's a scene after Victoria visits her right before she dies where her husband is clearly distraught and sobbing wildly -- but, sadly, the only sound is the music they put over the scene. Visually, it's very moving but I still wish they'd turned the music down so we could hear it as well.

The first time I can remember was when I was three or four years old. My mother and I were at the college movie theater watching Brigadoon. Toward the end, there's a scene where Gene Kelly chokes up, and I remember being extremely focused on that moment. Even now, thinking about it, I find myself leaning forward in my chair. After that, men's tears. and more honestly, actors' tears have intrigued me. For some reason, "real" tears are harder for me to get involved in -- I think the raw emotion is just too much.

Interesting questionnaire. So much of it relates to my distant past that it was hard to know how to answer some of the questions.

Coca Cola is launching two new flavors, one of them is "Happy Tears". I haven't seen it in stores yet, but I can't wait to try it!

Any Pixar film will have me in tears. Also any film about an estranged mother and daughter where they come together, e.g. "The Joy Luck Club". Any film with a happy ending after lots of tribulation.

Especially if the full-on uncontrollable ugly sobbing is happening in spite of the crier's wishes. There's something about when someone (for me, a man) loses control and cries with a bit of humiliation thrown in. It makes the idea of comforting him that much more appealing.

I say let's go to 110, then start the new one.

I agree with psychic_girl. This isn't at all sexual for me, I get an emotional thrill rather than a sexual one. There's the vulnerable aspect, the "taboo" aspect, but mainly for me it's about comforting. I have no desire to see anyone I know in tears -- the few times it's happened I was so caught up in the situation that there was no thrill, just an overwhelming need to ease the emotional pain. But when I see a well acted crying scene, I feel a strong desire to comfort that person (man), whether by holding him, patting his shoulder, or having him cry on my shoulder. There's a very strong sense of emotional intimacy from that happening that is more satisfying to me than out-and-out eroticism or sexual scenes. (I've often wondered if I may be demisexual or even asexual since emotional connection is much more important to me than physical connection.)

I believe the medic is Thomas Barrow, normally not a sympathetic character in the early stages of Downton.
