Last season, Twitter assigned This Is Us its first hashtag emoji, a tissue box. It was funny because it was so accurate. The NBC series is known for its ability to tug on the heartstrings of fans across the globe, leaving viewers sniffling when not outright weeping at the emotional twists and turns in the lives of the Pearson clan. But it's not only the plotting which brings the emotional drama, but it's also the writing as well. These This Is Us quotes from over the last three seasons are a reminder the show will make you laugh and cry at the same time.
To be fair, it's not just the Pearson family characters who have all the best lines. William, Randall's biological father, is also a font of wisdom for the ages, and a poet besides. But series creator Dan Fogelman and the writers' room seem to save all the powerhouse stuff for the central characters of the family, as well as Randall's wife Beth, who is a Pearson by marriage. Between her, William and the five Pearsons (Jack, Rebecca, Kevin, Kate, and Randall), there are more emotional quotes here than any reasonable person can handle.
So grab a tissue and check out seven of the most moving quotes of This Is Us.
