Northern Exposure #87

Maurice has the violinist cornered and comes to the realization that he's ruined this otherwise good man and lets him escape. When Barbara the Trooper confronts him, and he lies to facilitate the violinists escape, even when he knows it will cost him his own hopes of a relationship with Barbara. Standing up and doing what's right even when it will cost you... how can that not be worth a few tears? Pride, determination and a bit of sorrow make the eyes go misty. 1 hankie
