Sam asks someone how's the sandwich he made, he says it's the most delicious thing he's ever put in his mouth. Sam says really? And he says:
Swear on my mama's wig. It's the only thing I can do not to weep.

What does "the only thing I can do not to weep" mean?
Thank you.

    It's so good it is moving him to tears. Well, almost tears. He is managing not to cry. It is hyperbolic / comedy, though I don't know the show, this is obviously a comic exchange.
