The episode begins with unfamiliar survivors watching from the opposite side of a metal grate inside the prison; the familiar survivors on the other hand attempt to secure Hershel, whose leg was recently hacked off after being bitten. Zombies burst into the room only to be stabbed in the neck by T-Dog. Daryl then trains his crossbow on the human strangers and the gang backs out of the room and into the dark prison hallways, in a hurry. They make it back to their cellblock and put Hershel on a bed. He is bleeding badly, and seems in a really bad shape. ..

Tomas: What you got going on in there?
Daryl: Ain't none of your concern.
Tomas: Don't be telling me what's my concern.
Big Tiny: Chill man, dude's leg is messed up. Besides, we're free now. Why we still in here?
Daryl: Man's got a point.
Oscar: And I've got to check on my old lady.
Tomas: Group of civilians, breaking into a prison you got no business being in? Got me thinking there ain't no place for us to go.
Daryl: Why don't you go find out?

Tomas: You guys rob a bank or something? Why don't you take him to a hospital?

Lori: Look, I know that I'm a shitty wife and I'm not winning any mother of the year awards, but I need you to know that not for one second do I think there is malice in your heart. You're not a killer and I know that. I know that, whatever you gotta do to keep this group safe and do it with a clear conscience.

Lori: I appreciate that but...
Carl: Then get off my back!
Beth: Carl! She's your mother, you can't talk to her like that.
