Location: The scene at the beginning at Carl's school was filmed at Peachtree Elementary School in Peachtree City, Georgia.
Trivia: T-Dog's real name is "Theodore Douglas."
Dale: How are you feeling. T-Dog? I asked you how you were feeling just now, please don't blow that question off.
T-Dog: It really, really hurts. It's throbbing something awful. (Dale checks his wound) Ow, don't touch it.
Dale: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Listen, your veins are very discoloured. You got a hell of an infection there. You could die from blood poisoning.
T-Dog: (laughs) Oh, man. Wouldn't that be the way? World gone to hell, the dead risen up to eat the living and Theodore Douglas is done here by a cut on his arm.
Hershel: Do you know his blood type?
Rick: A+, the same as mine.
Hershel: That's fortunate. Don't wander far, I'm going to need you. What happened?
Otis: I was tracking a buck...bullet went through it...went clean through.
Hershel: The deer slowed the bullet down, which certainly saved his life, but it did not go through clean. It broke up into pieces. I can get the bullet fragments out, I count six.
Lori: Otis, the idiot who shot my son.
Hershel: Ma'am, it was an accident.
Lori: I'll take that under advisement later, for now he is the idiot who shot our son.
Rick: (outside the room Carl is in) Should be me in there.
Shane: You been there, partner, right? But you pulled through, and so will he.
Rick: Is that why I got out of that hospital, found my family, for it to end here, like this? Is this some sort of sick joke?
Shane: You stop it, just stop.
Andrea: We're all hoping and praying with you, for what it's worth.
Daryl: I'll tell you what it's worth, not a damn thing. It's a waste of damn time, all this hopin' and prayin'. We're going to locate that little girl, and she's gonna be just fine. Am I the only one Zen around here? Good lord.
T-Dog: I'm talking about two good ole' boy cowboy sheriffs and a redneck whose brother cut off his own hand because I dropped a key. Who in that scenario is the first that's gonna be lynched.
Dale: You can't be serious. Am I missing something? Those two cowboys have done alright by us and if I'm not mistaken that redneck went out of his way to save your ass more than once.
The crystal meth found in Daryl's bag of drugs is blue, like that on 'Breaking Bad.'
' is another show on AMC revolving around the life of a man who makes and sells meth, that is blue due to its high purity.
Zorro: Glenn tells Dale that "this chick rode out of nowhere, like Zorro on a horse" while talking about Maggie.
'Zorro' is a fictional character created in 1919 that is the star of many films, books and television series'.
