The best part about Juliette's crying is that it's never just crying. She can cry with you and still find you irritating.

Season 1, Episode 18: "Take These Chains from My Heart"

Or she can cry and flip out.

Season 1, Episode 19: "Why Don't You Love Me"

Or cry while her hairline tries to make an escape.

There are also a lot of levels. This is a 10. Maximum crying.

This is a good one. She's still crying, but her face is dead.

Season 1, Episode 21: "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive"

And that's like a 2.5.

Noteable: Hayden Panettiere often looks really beautiful, even as a teary, undone Juliette.

She can even cry while she's singing. (It comes in handy again later.)

Season 2, Episode 2: "Never No More"

Photo: ABC

It looks like she's not really crying, but trust. She is.

Okay, she's not crying here, but the face was too good to pass up.

Poor Juliette. Always having to live up to other people's expectations.

Casual Juliette taking a page from the Olivia Pope go-home-and-put-on-comfy-knits guidebook.

Season 2, Episode 12: "Just for What I Am"

Is she crying from sadness or from how tight the hairdo is?

18 of 35

Season 2, Episode 15: "They Don't Make 'Em Like My Daddy Anymore"

Photo: ABC

Don't cry! You're so pretty!

19 of 35

Season 2, Episode 21: "All or Nothing With Me"

Actually, do cry. It creates the only truly emotive moments on this show. A+++ crying.

Step aside, Claire Danes.

She doesn't even have to look at you.

Pull the wig all the way on! And then dry those tears.

She's a champion of pajama crying. (Many of us are competitors.)

Over-it crying.

You'd cry, too, if your ex were such a numbskull.

Juliette deserves love! Avery deserves to get his head out of his ass! Problem solved!

Sing it.

Another 10!

If you're gonna be on a primetime soap, follow Panettiere's lead here and sell it. This isn't a documentary about British people or whatever: If your character's gonna lose it, really effin' lose it.

She's still pissed, too.

Season 3, Episode 2: "How Far Down Can I Go"

Any closer and this would be a Magic School Bus episode about what tears are made of. (Pregnancy hormones, mostly?)

Season 3, Episode 3: "I Can't Get Over You to Save My Life"

Mad, resigned, confused, scared, and also crying. The girl contains multitudes.

Hang in there! You are okay!

And finally, one last tear of relief.
