It鈥檚 not often that we鈥檙e totally in love with a show before the thing even airs, but ever since the first teaser for This Is Usappeared back in the spring of 2016, we knew this was going to be one of the best new shows of the year. And it has NOT disappointed.

Not only does it star Gilmore Girls鈥 Jess 鈥 AKA Milo Ventimiglia 鈥 which would have been reason enough alone to be obsessed, but after just one episode and its HUGE twist ending, that was it. We were hooked, and the Pearson family was like our family.

This Is Us has already been renewed for seasons two AND three, which really speaks to just how much it resonates with people. It鈥檚 nothing if not an emotional rollercoaster, which is a huge part of the show鈥檚 appeal. If you don鈥檛 already read our weekly recaps, make sure to check them out, and if you need even MORE to tide you over 鈥檛il the next episode, here are just SOME of the endless moments from the show so far that keep us coming back for more (while sobbing big sopping piles of tears, natch). WARNING: This post contains spoilers!

1. When you connect all the dots. This Is Us is an earnestly emotional show, and while its vulnerability and rawness really resonates, it鈥檚 all of the jumping between the past and the present and the twists, turns and cliffhangers and the connections that brings that really keep us hooked.

2. When you learn The Big Three鈥檚 connection. For example, one of the show鈥檚 best twists remains the big ending of the very first episode 鈥 when we learn that Randall was actually adopted and that it was him, Kate and Kevin who Jack and Rebecca brought home from the hospital. Did you scream? We screamed.

3. When Rebecca and Miguel are all of a sudden together. In the second episode, Rebecca shows up to her son Randall鈥檚 house with 鈥淕randpa,鈥 and it鈥檚 NOT Jack, but his best friend, Miguel. WTF HAPPENED TO JACK? We needed to know.

4. When Kate introduces Toby to her dad and it鈥檚 an urn. This is when we find out that Jack died at some point and nope, can鈥檛 handle it. Next.

Picture perfect Pearsons. #ThisIsUs

5. When Randall finds the letter. We鈥檇 already learned that Rebecca had actually met Randall鈥檚 biological dad in the past and decided she didn鈥檛 want him in Randall鈥檚 life. But when Randall discovers her secret and confronts her, we can鈥檛 handle what this means for their relationship.

6. Literally anything to do with Kate and Toby. From the moment they meet to their breakup and reconciliation to Toby鈥檚 medical emergency鈥

7. When we think Toby dies. The mid-season finale cliffhanger was a HEARTBREAKER. Toby and Kate had just gotten back together when he collapses from a heart attack and is rushed to the hospital. Then you had to wait like a MONTH for it to come back from hiatus. This show will NOT leave our emotions alone.

8.When the Pearson kids do The Big Three chant but as grown ups. BAWLING.

9. Literally any moment Jack and Rebecca are together. Though not perfect, these two have a loving and fun relationship, and it鈥檚 hard not to be totally smitten with their love. In the third episode, 鈥淜yle,鈥 they admit to each other that bonding with their adopted son Randall (then still named Kyle) had been very difficult, and they finally grieve the loss of their third biological baby. It鈥檚 beautiful and yep, we鈥檙e crying all over again.

10. Any time Jack is just being the best dad ever. There are so many amazing moments between Jack and his young children that make us ugly-cry. One that sticks out is in 鈥淭he Pool鈥 episode, when some girls were bullying Kate in her new Care Bears bikini and Jack gives Kate his 鈥渕agic shirt,鈥 reassuring her that she is perfect in his eyes.

11. Jack鈥檚 funeral. In episode 13, which just aired, we get our first glimpse at Jack鈥檚 funeral and are starting to learn more about his death. Are we ready for that? Nope. Not at all. But we鈥檙e in this for the long haul, and ready to find out what happened in the family as the season continues.

12. When Jack takes Rebecca to their old apartment. After Jack and Rebecca learned about Miguel and Sherry鈥檚 divorce, Jack doubles down on making sure the rough patches are only part of his and Rebecca鈥檚 marriage 鈥 not the end of the story. He rents out their old apartment (we鈥檙e willing to overlook the fact that apartments are never vacant and available for one-night rentals because it鈥檚 just TOO ROMANTIC), where they drink Champagne on the floor while reading their wedding vows. For just a second, everything is so perfect and okay, yep, crying again.
