Ending / spoiler

(4 votes)

Thomas J returns to the woods to retrieve Vada's mood ring, but is stung by the bees causing an allergic reaction which kills him. Vada is torn up with grief, but eventually moves past it which also helps her deal with her various other issues. In the end, Thomas J's mother gives Vada the mood ring that he was found holding, which is now light blue instead of black.

Audio problem: At Thomas J's memorial service, Vada goes up to the coffin crying. Just after she says something about his glasses being missing, her father comes up to comfort her. Watch his mouth - he is heard talking but his lips aren't moving at first (they are in the next shot).

Vada: Mrs. Sennett, don't worry, Thomas J. Will be all right. My mother will take care of him.

More quotes from My Girl

Chosen answer: Most likely because there was no reason for a scene of them together to tell the story. It is assumed that because Thomas and Vada are friends, that Harry has interacted with Thomas many times before. There could have been scenes filmed with the two actors together that was later cut from the final film. This often happens to quicken the film's pace, shorten the running time, etc.
