Get ready for a feel-good video that has it all: a handsome stranger, dozens of roses, tears of joy and ... the NYC subway?

Yes, the 6 train was the setting for an unexpected display of generosity.

In the clip — which was filmed in 2013, but has only now found viral fame with more than 1 million views on YouTube — a flower vendor can be seen offering up an assortment of brightly colored roses.

"They're $1 each or $11 a dozen," she tells the commuters around her. "If you want 15 roses, it'll be $14."

But what if the man in front of her wanted all 140 roses she had on hand?

"You serious?" she asked.

Her uncertainty was put to rest as he handed her $140, and said, "You have to do me a favor. You have to give them out. ... Don't sell any of them; give them all away."

As she started to tear up, he added, "Don't be like that! It's a happy thing."

There was no doubt about that as he disappeared and the tears of joy really started to flow.

Have a hankie ready and watch the pay-if-forward scene play out for yourself.
