The scene opens with a Walker trying to get to Lori. She lets out a quiet scream. Meanwhile, Rick makes sure that the Dave and Tony were dead. Hershel tells them that they need to head back. However before they can do this, a car pulls up and they hide. Two men come up to the bar asking for Dave and Tony. Rick, Glenn and Hershel get ready for them. Back at the crash site, the Walker is getting through the windshield and Lori tries to climb to the top. The Walker grabs her hair, but she manages to stab it in the eye. She gets out only to be attacked by it again. She hits it and runs to the car for the gun. She shoots it and gets up to look around to where the car crashed to begin with...

Hershel: You want me to cover Glenn?
Rick: You missed all that gun training. It could've come in handy now.
Hershel: Nah, I can shoot. Just don't like to.

Shane: Carl, I want you to keep your head up, okay? You're old man, he's the toughest son of a bi--
Patricia: No cussing in the house.
Shane: ...Sorry.

Carol: We can't find Lori, and the others aren't back yet either.
Daryl: That dumb bitch must've gone off looking for them.
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: You're not fine, I saw the wreck. Let me look at you, what happened?
Lori: I looked down at the map and hit a walker.
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.
Shane: (Lying) He's back, they're all back, safe and sound.
Lori: Really?
Shane: Yeah.

Daryl: What are you doing?

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.
