“(being attacked by Zombie, before knowing what zombies are) STOP! LEAVE ME ALONE! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU!?”
“(To Governor) YOU PEOPLE ARE ANIMALS!!"
“Thinking of the good times makes all this seem worse”
Lori: Rick, you shaking.
Rick: The past two days.. I been so focused on finding you and Carl.. I hadn’t had time… To be scared.
Carl (kills Shane): (in tears) It’s not the same as killing the dead ones Daddy.
Rick (hugs him): I never SHOULD be son.. It never should be.
“I understand what your saying Tyreese. I just watched my best friend flip out and try to kill me. I never seen something like that before. I was so shocked I almost didn’t even realize the danger I was in.”
“(shoots zombie Shane) I ain’t burying you again, you son of a bitch”
Rick: (beating up Thomas) YOU! IT WAS "YOU" WASN’T IT!? YOU SICK FUCK!! YOU KILLED THEM, THEY WERE JUST LITTLE GIRLS, THEY DIDN’T DO ANYTHING TO YOU!!
Lori: Rick, stop!
Rick: No! He deserves every bit of this Lori! (to Thomas) Don’t you, you psycho son of a bitch!? DON’T YOU DESERVE THIS!?
“We have to make an example of Thomas.. We have to make the statement clear.. You kill you die.. Take Thomas away.. We’re gonna hang him.”
“If we can cut off the bitten leg, “maybe” we can save him.. Bites kill, we know that now. The thing that makes us zombies is inside us, ALL of us!.. I have to remove the infected area, (raises hatchet) I HAVE TO DO THIS!!”
“Calm the fuck down. Is the truth getting to you Tyreese!? DON’T FUCKING HIT ME AGAIN!!”
“It’s still murder. You seriously think that’s how it works!? “Rick you murder wasn’t justified, but mine was!”
Rick: I been out twenty four hours?
Rick: Zombies still around?
Rick: I was cracking a joke Carol. Last time I was out, I awoke to a zombie apocalypse.. Guess it wasn’t funny.
“We’ve taken to calling them zombies.. Though taken me a while to say it with a straight face”
Rick: Do you people still think we’re gonna be rescued.. THEY’RE NOT COMING!! Life will never be the same, ever.. You can come to grips with that. Or you can keep sitting around “hoping”.. Trying to follow every retarded rule we as a species ever created, to prevent us from becoming savages.. We have to change.. We have to evolve.. We’re still stay humane. But we have to change.
Tyreese: We have Rick.. But we don’t want to become savages.
Rick: It's obvious now that i'm the only sane one here! We already are savages, Tyreese. You especially! The second we put a bullet in the head of one of these undead monsters--the moment one of us drove a hammer into one of their faces--or cut of a head. We became what we are! And that's just it. That's what this comes down to. You people don't know what we are. We're surrounded by the dead. We're among them--and when we finally give up we become them! We're living on borrowed time here. Every minute of our life is a minute we steal from them! You see them out there. You know that when we die--we become them. You think we hide behind walls to protect us from the walking dead! Don't you get it! WE ARE THE WALKING DEAD! … We are the walking dead.
“Different time.. Different world”
“So… When do you torture me?”
“You were gonna lead the Governor straight to us! You were gonna betray us! Put us in danger! My FAMILY in danger! YOU WERE GONNA KILL US!!”
“Lori.. I killed a man today”
“Governor will find us.. He will come.. When he does.. We need to be ready."
