21 Saddest TV Monologues

“Who’s gonna take care of us?”

Recently we asked the BuzzFeed Community to share the saddest underrated TV scenes. Here are the best monologues that were submitted!


On Buffy the Vampire Slayer, when Buffy finally broke down in front of Dawn after their mom died:

The WB

“When Buffy says, ‘Who’s going to be if I’m not? Have you even thought about that? Who’s going to make things better? Who’s going to take care of us?’ it always makes me cry. The way her voice breaks. She and Alyson Hannigan as Willow never fail to make me sob with them.”



On Teen Wolf, when Stiles convinced Scott not to kill himself and called Scott his brother:


“It’s one of my favorite episodes. ‘If you’re gonna do this … you’re gonna have to take me with you.'”



On This Is Us, when Kevin broke down on his old high school football field:


“No one gives Justin Hartley the credit he deserves for the superb acting in that episode (and the whole series).”



On Supernatural, when Castiel confessed his love for Dean right before he died:


On The Vampire Diaries, when Bonnie stopped Damon before he desiccated in a coffin for 60 years and told him how she felt about him not even saying goodbye:


On Shameless, when Fiona told her mother how she’s had to raise her siblings and how well they were doing without her:


“Fiona’s speech to Monica crying and saying, ‘You were my mother too’ when Monica came back and tried to take Liam. It was absolutely heartbreaking. Emmy Rossum did a phenomenal job in that scene.”



On The Good Place, when Chidi told Elena a Buddhist belief about death as he said goodbye to her forever:


On Breaking Bad, when Jessie admitted to his group that he was there to sell meth, and questioned their method of self-forgiveness:


On WandaVision, when Vision comforted Wanda after Pietro’s death:


On Game of Thrones, when Jaime told Brienne why he killed the Mad King:


“It was just such a powerful scene and gives us an explanation of who Jaime actually is and how we have misunderstood him. That was the moment he became one of my favorites. You really feel sad for Jaime in that scene.”



On The West Wing, when Mrs. Landingham told Charlie about her twin sons dying in Vietnam:


On The 100, when Clarke and Bellamy watched the tape Monty had left behind for them:


On Buffy the Vampire Slayer, when Anya had trouble conceiving of death after Joyce died:

The WB

“The little speech she has while standing in Willow’s dorm room is so heartbreaking. I can hold myself together before that, but once Anya breaks down, I’m sobbing.”



On Killing Eve, when Villanelle talked about not feeling anything:


On Shameless, when Monica died and Fiona told Frank that she was never there:


“Fiona threw her entire life away, dropped out of high school, and had to have multiple jobs just to take care of her siblings. She had to be the mother she never had and was still treated like shit throughout the show. That scene breaks my heart and sends chills through my body no matter how many times I watch it.”



On This Is Us, when Kate got upset about the police killings of Black men and Randall talked about how exhausted he was:


On Sherlock, when John talked to Sherlock’s headstone:


On The Vampire Diaries, when Damon talked to Alaric’s headstone:

The CW

“We never really saw an emotional side to Damon until this moment. It makes me cry every single time.”



On Grey’s Anatomy, when Bailey broke down to Derek after operating on her former high school crush:


On Teen Wolf, when Sheriff Stilinski finally remembered Stiles:


“The moment when he finishes and Scott smiles always makes me cry.”



And finally, on M*A*S*H, when Margaret confronted the nurses:


“There are so many sad scenes in M*A*S*H, but the one that sticks out for me that a lot of people overlook is in ‘The Nurses’ when Margaret break down and tells the other nurses how lonely she is. ‘Can you imagine what it feels like to walk by this tent and hear you laughing and know I’m not welcome? Did you ever once ever offer me a lousy cup of coffee?’ Maybe it’s because I was so lonely as a kid, but it makes me sob every time.”


“I always, always remember that scene. The way she drags in her breath, you can hear her throat is practically closed with emotion.”
