In the now-famous video clip, Barbara Weber, Peter's mom, cried over ... Hannan Ann. And Peter wasn't having any of it.

It was the emotional monologue heard 'round the world (well, if "world" is a euphemism for "every Bachelor preview ever"). Barbara Weber, Peter's mom, finally broke down and sobbed the now-famous line: (opens in new tab) "Bring her home to us!"—again, "famous" is a euphemism here—while begging her son to pick one of the contestants. We all thought it was Madison—but no! It's actually Hannah Ann Sluss, who Barbara unexpectedly loved and wanted to be her daughter-in-law! (Oh, God, I wouldn't want to be Madison watching this right now.)

And Peter's response? Honestly, considering all the build-up to that moment—it was the Jumping the Fence of this season!—it's hilarious. I quote: "You gotta stop doing this." Which, um, yes. Barb, I love you, but everybody knows you can't take sides on a romantic partner unless you're very sure that it won't blow up in your face. Let alone if your son still has two girlfriends!

Anyway, here's the moment:

And, yeah, people had thoughts.

There Were a Lot of "Bud"s?
