2 When Somebody Loved Me Jessie's Back Story When Somebody Loved Me Jessie's Back Story

One of the saddest Pixar moments, Jessie's entire back story is told in flashback through the song "When somebody loved me" as Jessie goes from being loved by her owner Emily and as she got older Jessie ended up being forgotten about until years later when Emily finds her again under the bed only for Emily to give her away, one line that Jessie says sums it up "you never forget kids like Emily or Andy but they forget about you". - egnomac

3 Buzz Lightyear Video Game Opening Buzz Lightyear Video Game Opening

Great way to open a movie especially for Pixar's first sequel that sees Buzz land on a planet as he makes his way past robots, death traps and other hazards before facing off with Zurg who eventually blasts him leaving nothing but his legs as it all turns out to be a video game as the game over screen appears as Rex who's playing panics. - egnomac

This is the best for me. Such a charming event - darthvadern

4 You Are a Toy You Are a Toy

Possibly one of the best scenes in the movie after the gang led by other Buzz and the actual Buzz shows up to take Woody back but Woody has made up his mind to stay with them and go to the museum in Tokyo and in a total role reversal from the first movie Buzz tells Woody the same thing he told him about how life is only worth living if your loved by a kid while Woody tells him he wasted his time as Buzz and the others are leaving Buzz tells him the downsides of living life on display of spending the rest of his life behind glass never to be loved again. - egnomac
