When Jamie agrees to help Landon with his lines for a play, she says, “You have to promise you won’t fall in love with me.”
"That's not a problem," he responds, laughing. Obviously, this wouldn't be a tear-jerker on its own, but given that he eventually does fall in love with her and we understand why that was a condition of hers... yep. Tear-jerker.

Landon goes to extreme lengths to prove his devotion and love to her, and obviously, we later realize why Jamie has a bucket list at all.

Another thing on her bucket list was to get a tattoo. When Landon puts a temporary tattoo of a butterfly on her shoulder, the thoughtful gesture made girls around the world get weepy.

When Landon returns four years later
When Landon returns to see Jamie's dad four years after her death, he tells him, "I'm sorry she never got her miracle." Her dad responds, "She did. It was you."
