You might as well go ahead and print this note from "This Is Us" star Milo Ventimiglia. If you don't need it this week, you'll surely be reaching for it by the season finale.

Tonight's (Feb. 21) episode is called "Memphis," with Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and William (Ron Cephas Jones) taking a road trip to Memphis, so Randall can learn about his biological father's past.

Every episode of "This Is Us" ends up making fans cry, but series creator Dan Fogelman issued a special announcement about this one:

So it'll be good TV, but probably bad for our Kleenex budgets.

On that note, Milo "Jack Pearson" Ventimiglia decided to help fans out by sharing his get-out-of-work/school note, in case you just can't cope after this week's (or another week's) episode:

And we love Perfect Papa Pearson back!

This William and Randall episode has fans especially worried that it might mark The End for William, and we already know that Jack passes away at some point in the '90s era storyline. Last week's episode gave fans new ideas on how he might die, but ... however it happens, it's going to be awful. And we will definitely need that note.

"This Is Us" airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. on NBC.
