Now that "This Is Us" has returned, we're back to crying weekly without any shame.

The premiere episode got right back into yanking at our heartstrings, a fact that Jimmy Fallon made light of on "The Tonight Show" afterward. With the help of stars Sterling K. Brown (Randall), Chrissy Metz (Kate), and Milo Ventimilgia (Jack), he put together a skit showing more or less what viewers go through each week. Although he played a fictional "This Is Us" crew member rather than a fan, it was hilariously relatable; Dale the sound guy was no better at keeping his tears at bay than we are.

Based on the Season 2 premiere, we'd say the show's ability to make fans cry didn't weaken over the hiatus. On Twitter, fans managed to fit in time between blowing their noses and wiping away tears to tweet about the episode, and they made it clear they were moved.

"This Is Us" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
