Okay, here's the context from the sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S.......

(Monica enters from the dressing room wearing her gown.)

Rachel: Oh my God! You look so beautiful!

Phoebe: (To Rachel) Thank you Rachel but, look at Monica!

Monica: This is it. Yeah, this is the one. I can’t believe I found it!

(Another woman walks up.)

The Woman: Wow you look so beautiful! If I knew you, I’d cry.

Monica: Well I’m Monica Geller, ball like a baby.

The Woman: I’m Megan Bailey.

Can someone explain now? Or am I still wrong? Because I don't think Monica's crying here over anything!
The Woman: Wow you look so beautiful! If I knew you, I’d cry.

Monica: Well I’m Monica Geller, ball like a baby.

Okay, once again, it means to cry. The woman says she would cry if she knew Monica, so she introduces herself and tells her to go ahead and cry.

The person who did the script either made a simple typo or just didn't know the expression.
