Sobbing already.

Get out your tissues! This Is Us tugs at your heart in all the right places. As we get ready for the Pearsons to come back for season 2 on Tuesday, September 26, let's revisit all of the most emotional parts of the first season of the NBC drama. Here are the best quotes from season 1 of This Is Us!


When Jack Only Had Eyes For Rebecca

Jack: You know I was supposed to have another date the night that we met? Did I ever tell you that?

Rebecca: No.

Jack: The woman that sold me the Chevelle. She set me up. But then I saw you, and I stood the other girl up.

Rebecca: I wonder who she was.

Jack: I never have.

When Jack Really Took Control Of His Life

Jack: Next week, we're going back to that bar and we're going to get our money back. One way or another. I'm going to take the life I was supposed to have instead of waiting for it to come and find me.

Rebecca On That Motherhood Vibe

Ben: Wow. You look great.

Rebecca: Thanks. I look like a mom playing dress up.


When Randall Really Took Control Of His Life

Randall: You see, for days, I've been plagued by the question: How do I honor my father's legacy? Then I realized, I honor his legacy by taking what I learned from the way he lived his life and use it to shape the way I go on living mine. So here it is, Tyler. I quit.

Ben Telling It Like It Is

Ben: Hey, Jack, I don't know what she told you, but don't punish her because I crossed the line.

Jack On Parenthood

Jack: The kids are gonna be fine. We've shown them a healthy marriage. This is just gonna be a blip on their radar years from now. We're their parents, Bec, but at the end of the day, what happens to them, how they turn out, it's bigger than us.

Randall Being A Grown-Ass Man

Randall: I love you, mom.

Rebecca: I love you more.

Randall: I love you No. I meant what I said, but I'm a grown-ass man and this is going to cross a very weird line.

Rebecca: Fair enough.


Beth Keeping It Real

Beth: I guess I'll cancel the caterers, flowers and white doves.

Randall: You got white doves?

Beth: They don't make black ones.

William Getting Emotional

William: Thank you for doing what I couldn't. For raising him to be the man he is. Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you, brother. I would have liked to have heard that laugh. I would have liked to have met my son's father. Yeah. Cool.
