Like, we're talking raging rivers of tears here. With the series finale airing this Thursday night — that's a reason to cry right there!
Consider this a warm-up for the finale. Oh, you know you're going to cry; don't kid yourself. In the very first episode, Adam breaks down when revealing his son Max's autism to his hard-nosed dad Zeek, tearfully telling him, "There's something wrong with my son… and I'm gonna need you to help me.
After Amber runs away, Kristina and Haddie track her down in a rainstorm, and the two cousins eventually work it out and share a hug as their parents look on, with Ray LaMontagne's aching ballad "Let It Be Me" playing underneath.
The music is so good on Parenthood, isn't it? Here, she launches into a long rant about how he knows nothing about her and how she can never forgive him for walking out on them: Hence, the episode title. But our hearts still break for him when he confesses to Jasmine and she flies into a rage, telling him, "You don't deserve anything good in your life! Adam and Kristina explain to Max that he has Asperger's Season 2, "Qualities and Difficulties" Max's struggles with his Asperger's syndrome, and his parents Adam and Kristina's struggles with it, are a regular source of tears on Parenthood.
Here, Max's mom and dad try to explain to him what his diagnosis means, and his efforts to understand are just heart-wrenching: Here, in the Season 2 finale, he takes his granddaughter Amber to see the car she wrecked during an irresponsible partying binge, and tells her he's not going to let her bad decisions ruin the family he's always dreamed of: Kristina's baby Nora is born Season 3, "Nora" Amid all the tragedies the Bravermans have suffered through, it's nice to see them get a fleeting moment of joy.
They welcome a new addition when Kristina gives birth to daughter Nora, with Crosby by her side Adam was busy trying to convince a hip-hop star to record at the Luncheonette.
And seeing the whole family ooh'ing and ahh'ing over Nora in the hospital, we can't help but smile ourselves. In between tears, of course. Haddie yells at Max for running off Season 3, "Missing" Adam and Kristina's teen daughter Haddie often got shoved aside in favor of her special-needs brother Max, and that simmering frustration boils over here when Max runs away to go to a museum.

This clip is called "Utter Devastation" for a reason, people. Add in Adam's heartfelt big-brother toast at the reception, and it's a welcome case of Parenthood inspiring happy tears, rather than the usual sad ones.
Haddie leaves for college Season 4, "Family Portrait" One of the pleasures of Parenthood is watching the Braverman kids grow up, so when Adam and Kristina's daughter Haddie went away to college at Cornell, we felt as proud and as nervous as Adam and Kristina did. And when Haddie runs back from the airport security line to give her parents one more hug… well, that pretty much cinches it a place on this list. After Haddie flies back from college unannounced to see her, Kristina can't keep it a secret anymore, and the scene turns silent as we see each Braverman strain to process the terrible news.
