A Million Little Things is a charming and dramatic TV show that hits close to home with every episode. The show's one-liners are incredible and certainly dig deep.
Whether due to its beautifully selected soundtrack to enhance each scene's emotional effect or rather its coverage of important topics reaching far and wide, there's always room for the stories to feel somehow relatable, and relatability seems to be the culprit of most sob seshes.

From the immediate beginning, the show has commanded our respect. Eddie's eulogy had us laughing and crying right alongside the attendees, and watching him choke out his final and powerful line, "John, you say everything happens for a reason. I can't find a reason for this" had us all done for.
Like most of the emotional moments resulting from this show, it was hard differentiating whether the cause was heartwarming or saddening. Seeing Rome and Eddie step in for John was some "bro-code" magic. Magic that brought the welling of tears to eyes, while Sophie's sudden revelation that her father hadn't forgotten her was the last and final straw to break the tearful barrier.
Gary's storyline with breast cancer is humbling and watching his vulnerability is simply moving. The circumstances under which he reveals his scars to Maggie shows how much he cares for her and trusts her. It brings their relationship to a completely new level. I love the exchange between them about how she assumes he is going to say something about how she's different, but he stops her and says he's different.
Regina's anger with her uncle and consequently her mother for brushing off the horrendous occurrence is an intense storyline. Although, one that ended in a beautiful way. Despite Regina's mother experiencing the same molestation Regina endured, it provided a stronger foundation for their relationship. Watching Regina confront her mom and witnessing their emotional hug was enough, words weren't necessary for an answer.
Eddie and Katherine's Divorce
The show does a nice job of portraying the toll a divorce takes on children. Theo's breakdown and attitude with Katherine about her "poor performance" on his field trip to the aquarium shows how incredible a mother she is. She teaches him that parents can't always be perfect. Theo's such a respectful and mature child for his age, and his remorseful apology to Katherine is too pure. His slow-falling tears made for a perfectly emotional scene.
I'm Still Standing
They're still standing better than they ever did. Gary and Maggie's playful relationship is so truthful to their personalities and their performance only compliments that. The song choice couldn't have been more perfect for their situation. The sweet embrace they ended their song with held so much conviction and love. During this scene, it's easily foreseeable that they have a happy ending. Happy tears were certainly shed.
