Deleted Scenes From The 'Parenthood' Finale Are Straight-Up Precious

“Parenthood” ended on Thursday night with a bunch of tears and one beautiful montage set in the future. Now, NBC has released a few deleted scenes that tug at our heartstrings just a little harder.

This one includes a visit from Amber’s (Mae Whitman) dad Seth (John Corbett), who wants to meet baby Zeek for the first time. Corbett told The Hollywood Reporter that showrunner Jason Katims told him the scene would be cut for time, but was “super bummed.” Katims told TVLine, “It was a really nice moment, and it was painful to cut it. But unfortunately, we were in a situation where we didn’t have a choice.”

Another clip shows the original Bravermans — Camille (Bonnie Bedelia), Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) and their four children — roasting Sarah (Lauren Graham) before her wedding. They run through all of her ex-boyfriends at the dinner table.

In the last deleted scene, Hank (Ray Romano) and his daughter Ruby (Courtney Grosbeck) have a rare, sweet moment. “I’m really happy for you,” she says to her dad. Don’t mind the weeping over here.
