Hershel: You want me to cover Glenn?

Carol: What?
Daryl: Yeah, she asked me to go. I told her I was done being an errand boy.
Carol: And you didn't say anything? Don't do this, please? I've already lost my girl.
Daryl: Yeah, that wasn't my problem neither.

Rick: Hey, we all know this is not going to end well. There is nothing in it for any of us. You guys just...just back off, and no one else gets hurt.

Shane: Yeah, well next time you stay put. You wont need a map. Come on, I've got to get you back.
Lori: No, we've got to find Rick.

Episode Goofs

When Rick shot the two men in the pub at the end of "Nebraska" it was bright daylight with light streaming in through the windows. At the beginning of this episode, which picks up with Rick shooting the last man in the head, it is suddenly very dark. These scenes are supposed to overlap, but were clearly shot at two very different times of day.


When Hershel and Rick drive up to the farm with Randall in the car he is not wearing a blindfold. Moments later, when T-Dog notices and points out Randall, he has a blindfold on. He also goes from sitting in the middle seat in the back to sitting on the far left of the truck.
