'Not a dry eye in the house' = không có cặp mắt nào trong rạp hát còn khô (đẫm nước mắt) -> nghĩa là ai cũng xúc động, không ai bình thản được (everyone is crying or feels strong emotion).

Ví dụ
There was not a dry eye in the house as stars from the past were paraded on the pitch in an emotional ceremony after the final whistle.

Employees have given of their time and today on their days off to come in and make a difference, and there’s not a dry eye in the house.

Not a dry eye in the house! Touching moment a woman asks her fiancé's severely brain damaged sister to be her bridesmaid - and is rewarded with a beaming smile.

There was not a dry eye in the house as Skelton dismounted Big Star, took the saddle off his back – a long standing tradition when a horse is retired – and walked a final lap of honour in-hand to a standing ovation.
