Get ready for some serious feels because these unearthed Mrs. Doubtfire scenes are about to hit you right in your nostalgia bone.

When you thought you'd seen every tear-jerking Robin Williams moment going, two deleted scenes from the 1993 classic have emerged and well, you're probably going to need to reach for the tissues.

Scene 1. The Spelling Bee

The first of the two deleted scenes assumedly takes place in the first half of the movie, when an un-Doubtfire'd Daniel (Williams) turns up late to a Spelling bee his daughter Lydia (Lisa Jakub) is taking part in. When he discovers that ex-wife Miranda (Sally Fields) and two children Chris (Matthew Lawrence) and Natalie (Mara Wilson) have lost his saved seat, they begin to bicker loudly during the contest.

The result is Lydia messing up her question and directing this puppy-eyed glare of sad disappointment towards her parents:

Once outside the school, Daniel and Lydia confront each other. Sentences such as, “acting is a job” and “life’s [should be] more real and wonderful than that,” are bounded about and there are tears from both sides — and, by now, from you too.

Scene 2: "I hate you both"

The real heavy punch comes in the second deleted scene which takes place directly after that dinner in which Miranda realizes Mrs. Doubtfire is actually her ex-husband in drag. Remember?

So, after the dinner, Daniel turns up at the house he shared with his family before the separation and tries to explain his actions. Of course the explanation turns into a screaming match between both parents and, unbeknownst to both of them, all three children are sitting upstairs listening to every word.

And well, the resulting statements of despair from the children is really just too much.

Check it out for yourself:

To be honest it's probably a good thing that these two scenes didn't make the final cut because even though Mrs. Doubtfire touches on some very real emotional turmoil, these scenes are maybe just a tad too heavy. What do you think?

Do you think these deleted scenes should have made the cut?
