Rick: [after stabbing Shane for trying to kill Rick] Damn you for making me do this, Shane! This was you, not me! You did this to us! This was you! Not me! NOT ME!!... (sobs) Not me!...
Rick: Dale coud - could get under your skin. He sure got under mine, because he wasn't afraid to say what he thought, how he felt. That kind of honest is rare and brave. Whenever I'd make a decision, I'd look at Dale. He'd be looking back at me with that look he had. We've all seen it one time or another. I couldn't always read him, but he could read us. He saw people for who they were. He knew things about us - the truth who we really are. In the end, he was talking about losing our humanity. He said this group was broken. The best way to honor him is to unbreak it. Set aside our differences and pull together, stop feeling sorry for ourselves and take control of our lives... our safety... our future. We're not broken. We're gonna prove him wrong. From now on... we're gonna do it his way. That is how we honor Dale.
Rick: Look, I've fought him before. And after, we took in his old friends. They've become leaders in what we have here. Now you put down your weapons, walk through those gates... you're one of us. We let go of all of it, and nobody dies. Everyone who's alive right now. Everyone's who's made it this far. We've all done the worst kinds of things just to stay alive. But we can still come back. We're not too far gone. We get to come back. I know... we all can change.
Rick Grimes: They're gonna feel pretty stupid when they find out.
Sgt. Abraham Ford: Find out what?
Rick Grimes: They're screwing with the wrong people.
Gareth: Not gonna happen, but this might.
[brings the knife closer to Bob's eye]
Rick Grimes: There's guns in it. AK-47... 44 Magnum. Automatic weapons. Nightscope. There's a compound bow and a machete with a red handle. That's what I'm gonna use to kill you.
Gareth: We used to help people. We saved people. Things changed. They came in and - After that... I know that you've been out there, I can see it. You don't know what it is to be hungry. You don't have to do this. We can walk away. And we will never cross paths again. I promise you.
Rick Grimes: But you'll cross someone's path. You'd do this to anyone, right? Besides, I already made you a promise.
[Rick pulls out the machete he promised to kill Gareth with and swings down repeatedly as Rick's group attacks Gareth's group].
Glenn: How you can you not get bite but stop become a walker!?
Rick Grimes: ........... We're all infected.
Daryl Dixon: What?
Rick Grimes: At the C.D.C., Jenner told me. Whatever it is... We all carry it.
Carol Peletier: And you never said anything?
Rick Grimes: Would it have made a difference?
Glenn Rhee: You knew this whole time?
Rick Grimes: How could I have known for sure? You saw how crazy that mo...
Glenn Rhee: That is not your call. Okay, when I found about the Walkers in the barn, I told, for the good of everyone.
Rick Grimes: Well, I thought it best that people didn't know.
Rick Grimes: You saw how he was like, how he pushed me, how he compromised us, how he threatened us. He staged the whole Randall thing, let me out to put a bullet in my back. He gave me no choice. He was my friend, but he came after me. My hands are clean.
The Governor: I thought you were a cop, not a lawyer.
Rick Grimes: Either way, I don't pretend to be a governor.
The Governor: I told you, I'm their leader.
Rick Grimes: You're the town drunk who knocked over my fence and ripped up my yard, nothing more.
The Governor: Didn't you ever misjudge someone? Hmm? Andrea told me about your baby. That it might be your partner's. But you're caring for her and I admire that. Restitution for your own lack of insight. For failing to see the devil beside you.
Rick Grimes: Oh, I see him, all right.
Rick Grimes: You and Lori... I get what happened. When I figured it out, and I figured it out pretty quickly, I wanted to break your jaw, and let you choke on your teeth. But I didn't. That wasn't weakness. It took everything. That is my wife. That is my son. That is my unborn child. I will stay alive to keep them alive. You don't love her, you think you do, but you don't.
Dave: [Rick looks at Dave's gun] Not bad, huh? I got it off a cop.
Rick Grimes: I'm a cop.
Dave: This one was already dead.
