I'm surprised "ethics" would have that effect since the audience knows Worf isn't dead.
I think it was less about Worf dying, more about Crusher having to TELL this child his father is dead (as far as the characters know). And when she does, she can only choke back tears and say "I am SO sorry."

Well it got me. To each his own.

^It got to me, too.

In addition to most of the moments others have mentioned:

The son's naming ceremony in "The Inner Light": it made Picard's life there so much more real to me.

Picard and Daren in the jeffreys tube in "Lessons": between the music and the kiss...

Worf cradling K'Ehleyr's lifeless body and crying out agony.

Re: TNG moments that made you want to cry(or did)

The death of K'Ehlyr definitely did it for me. As did Lwaxana's revelation to Deanna about her sister Kestra in "Dark Page". But the one that actually made me tear up with Lwaxana almost as much was when she pleaded with her lover in "Half a Life".

Re: TNG moments that made you want to cry(or did)

Gotta agree with most of the above, especially affected by Lal and Sita.

Allow me to add Tasha's funeral scene in Skin of Evil. I first saw this at a rather young age. I had been spoiled, and the scene, while adequate, didn't do much for me. This is not an episode I revisit regularly, but I find myself more saddened by it with each viewing and today consider it quite moving. Denise Crosby did very well with what she was given here, and Data and Picard's reflections on her passing are perfectly handled.

Ron Jones' music for the scene is also particularly moving and effective.

For days!?

Phew...
Yes, it did have that effect on me. Felt nauseous for a couple of days. It came out of nowhere unexpectedly, and I felt horrible at the prospect that they were being sentenced to go back to that terror for the good of the other parallel universes. Wasn't exactly a fair deal for them, and their failed attempt at resisting was like watching someone scream in terror at the prospect of being tortured, like in some horror movies. Their quick death was only mildly satisfactory.

Re: TNG moments that made you want to cry(or did)

When Scotty walks on to the holodeck version of the (true) 1st Enterprise. Not a fan of the NX-01 retcon as the 1st. His line here's to you lads gets me every time. The follow up exchange between him and Picard is brilliant also.
Here is a link to that scene http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2Rv2wZrj-0

The moment in "The Wounded" when the captain realizes he lost after singing with O'brien.
The realization by the Romulan defector that he was set up. In that episode, when he tells Picard how he looks in his daughter's eyes and realizes he must change the world for her.

This is one episode I tend to leave on the shelf, not because its bad, quite the opposite, its incredible television, but it is heavy going. Its like schindlers list or something, not really 'tuesday afternoon veiwing', if you catch my drift.

I dunno, just something about it, its a very powerful 2 parter.

Re: TNG moments that made you want to cry(or did)

Definitely, I would go with "Family" when Picard finally breaks down (as far as the series goes) about what the Borg did to him.

And the same for "Chain of Command" and the five lights dialogue at the end of the episode. I am a huge fan of Picard so I have invested a lot of emotion into the character.

Admiral Jarok. The fact that Picard didn't deliver the letter when he had a chance on Romulus makes me feel even worse.

Re: TNG moments that made you want to cry(or did)

In "Inheritance", when Data reactivates his mother in sickbay and has to make up the story about her breaking her arm. When he realizes that he can never truly connect with her being a fellow android.

I have to say though, I can think of a lot more moments in DS9 than I can in TNG.
