The saddest scene in Emma?

OK, so this really has more to do with the adaptation of it, Emma2 (GP/JN), but which do you think is the saddest scene in Emma?
I think this speech (from Emma2) is by far the most...tear-jerking! (minus the proposal!)
"Badly done, Emma! Badly done! She has watched you grow from a time when her notice of you were an honour, to this! Humbling her and laughing at her in front of people who would be guided by your treatment of her! It is not pleasant for me to say these things. But I must tell you the truth, while I can. (*sigh! Double meaning!!!*) Proving myself your friend by the most faithful counsel! Trusting that, some time you will do my faith in you greater justice than you do it now."
Oh!!!!! I love that! :) If my sister didn't have my copy of the novel, I would've used the novel version of it - sorry!!! (I must remember to get that back...)
