Meanwhile, Shane and Otis are running through the hallways of a school overrun by walkers, doing their best to stay alive, and return with the medical supplies to Hershel.

Daryl: I'm going to walk the road, look for the girl.
Andrea: I'm coming too.
Daryl: (To Dale) I'm going for a walk, shine some light in the forest, if she's out there it will give her something to look at.
Dale: Do you think that's a good idea right now?
Rick: There is still a life for us, a place maybe like this. It isn't all death, out there; it can't be. We just have to be strong enough, after all we've seen, to still believe that. Why is it better for Carl to live, even in this world? He talked about the deer.
Daryl: Look at him. Hanging up there like a big piñata. The other geeks came and ate all the flesh off his legs.
Andrea: I thought we were changing the subject.
Daryl: Call that payback for laughing about my itchy ass.
Glenn: Um, we're here, okay?
Lori: Thank you...
T-Dog: Whatever you need.
Lori: Maybe this isn't a world for children anymore.
Rick: Yeah, well, we have a child. Carl is here in this world now, so --
Lori: Maybe he shouldn't be. Maybe this is how it's supposed to be.
Rick: You can't mean that. Okay, alright, I can understand that crossing your mind --
Lori: It didn't cross my mind Rick, I can't stop thinking it. Why do we want Carl to live in this world? To have to live this life? So that he can see more people torn apart in front of him? So that he can be hungry and scared for however long he has before he...So that he can run, and run, and run, and run, and even if he survives he ends up...he ends up just another animal who doesn't know anything except "survive." If he...if he dies tonight, it ends for him. Tell me why it would be better another way?
Carl: Where are we?
Rick: Little man, that is Hershel. We're at his house. You had an accident, alright?
Carl: It hurts a lot.
Lori: Baby, I know.
Carl: You should have seen it.
Carl: The deer. It was so pretty, mom. It was so close. I've never been...
Daryl: Do you want to live now, or not? It's just a question.
Andrea: An answer for an arrow, fair?
Andrea: I don't know if I want to live, or if I have to, or...if it's just a habit.
Daryl: Not much of an answer. Waste of an arrow.
Glenn: Do you think...do you think God exists?
Maggie: I always took it on faith. Lately I've wondered. With everything that's happened there must have been a lot of praying going on and it seems quite a few went unanswered.
Glenn: Thanks, that's really helping.
