From Cerberus station, when you watch the Project Lazarus logs.

Aha. I didn't bring Tali there. I sensed I was nearing the end, I was starting to fear squad member deaths. Going to bring her next time.
I'm Commander Shepard, and Tali'Zorah is my favourite girl in the galaxy.

When Shepard told Legion to pull over so he could go finish off the Reaper.

Tali: If we don't.... if this doesn't work...
Shepard: You worry too much.
Tali: I love you.
Shepard: Keelah se'lai!

At the point, I pumped a fist in the air with a hearty "Yeeeessss!" Loved that part!

Yeah, the entire ending of Rannoch was the damn best part of the game. :wub:

Ha ha, from Mass Effect 3, I suppose?  Sounds awesome. 
I don't care what Tali looks like.  Her true beauty is in her spirit and personality, and those can't be locked behind a mask.

"Still totally worth it"
"You're the man I love" (In the context it became very special)
"The difference was you"
"I want more time"

Four lines I cannot forget, for good and bad.

That last line broke my heart, i was actually fighting back tears...
The tone of her voice was just the perfect mix of wistfulness and sadness.

I just kinda paused at that point and went out side and laid under my tree for a while.  :3

I manned up and sat there fighting the tears with all I had. I kept thinking about how Shepard doesn't cry, then I'll fucking pull it off. I almost got through. A single bastard of a tear ran down my cheek.

It's hard NOT to shed a tear at the "I want... more time." moment. Her voice breaks, betraying her raw emotions. You know she's crying behind that mask, you know her heart is yours and that she thinks she'll never see Shepard again... that moment was particularly heartbreaking for me.

I just hate crying... I laughed the last time I broke my arm. But yeah... It was totally heartbreaking.

And then the shitty ending comes and goes, and Tali shows up all hopeful-looking in the Normandy crash.

Sheesh.

ME3's SP is not even worth discussing anymore. It's entirely forgettable with that ending.

Forgive me for sounding like an idiot, but what's an SP?

My favorite moment is when they find the computer with the video of how the commander was brought back to life and he starts to ask himself if everything is real or if he is even real then tali is like “Your still the same person and you are mine” just saying that made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :}

Yes that was a sweet moment.
I also enjoyed how, after the last entry, she simply states about TIM that "He has to die".
Seems to me that she wouldn't make such a comment lightly (unlike other companions), so he must've really pissed her off.
Hell hath no fury like my quarian woman scorned.  >:D

She's gone from wild-eyed kid in ME to being a loving young woman to Shepard, ready to do anything to protect him. Yet somehow, she manages to maintain her innocence. I've liked her since ME, but I really love the maturity the writers gave her in 3.

Definitely all of the above, most notably
Man, I may as well list the entire game. :p
Others that stayed with me were the meeting scene on Freedom's Progress, where the one Quarian doubts that anyone would invest so many resources to bring anyone back from the dead; Tali said something about them never seeing Shepard fight, but all I heard was the part about all the money being well spent.

I was so amazed in ME3 when she stated she was against the war with the Geth. That she put that life-long grudge or hate and upbringing behind her, looking for a peaceful way to coexist with the Geth just warmed my heart - even going up against her own aunt in the process.

I know this isn't specifically a Tali moment, but still... After killing the Reaper larva during the suicide mission when she slides toward the edge of the platform and you only just catch her and lifting the rubble off her after the fall, both times I was watching with my mouth hanging open, "No no no no. oh please no..." And then thanking whatever deities hang around in the mass effect universe that things turned out OK. Only the happening to Tali could have gotten that response out of me.

And repeated for emphasis: 'I want... more time'.
I want more Tali

When she sees the video log of T.I.M talking about Shepard the crew. Her response: "He needs to die."
I'm working on that... In the meantime BOSH'TET!
