The last scene of "The Day After" usually gets to me. Jason Robards knows he's dying from radiation so he decides to go home for the last time. He's picking through the rubble of his neighborhood when he sees an old man and his family sitting in the remains of his house. Jason Robards yells at them to get out of his house and then falls to his knees in despair. The old man comes up to him and offers him an onion (a treasure after WWIII) and then hugs him.
