The Scene: This piece happens right after Al and Ed find each other for the second time in Amestris on the surface world.  Ed is a little beat up after attacking the airship with his alchemy, and Al is in shock wandering around looking at all the damage she has caused.  When there is an explosion killing a child, poignantly demonstrated with a pool of blood, small hand, and Teddy Bear, this is Al's reaction while Ed looks on sadly.

Why?: Such a heartbreaking scene and fully demonstrates that Ed has grown on his journey while the Al without his memories is still stuck in the past where he thinks Alchemy can fix anything.

About the Douga: The sketches are the final Dougas that made it to screen, they are on two separate pieces of paper, however, I felt they would be better portrayed if they were merged as seen here.
