There comes that inevitable moment when it’s time to say goodbye. It happens all the time in life, and because movies are reflections of life, it happens all the time in movies. Whether a character is dying, going somewhere else, or breaking up with someone, saying farewell is really, really difficult. Here are the 19 saddest movie goodbyes.

There’s nothing wrong if a movie makes you cry. In fact, there’s nothing wrong if a movie makes you sob so uncontrollably you choke on your tears. It means the filmmakers are doing something right, because great art is supposed to make you feel all the feels. And these sad movie goodbyes have been known to do exactly that. You know that ugly cry you get from sad goodbye scenes. You can’t hide it when Hubbell and Katie say farewell for good at the end of The Way We Were, or when ET is finally able to go home in E.T. the Extra Terrestrial.

So grab a box of tissues and get ready to bawl your eyes out. And after you wipe the tears away, be sure to vote on your favorite sad goodbye scenes from movies.

Needless to say, SPOILERS ahead.
