Episode Quotes
Maggie: Changing of the guard?
Glenn: Yeah, I'll bring you breakfast after perimeter check.
Maggie: (looks at picture Glenn took of her) Oh my god, throw that away.
Glenn: Yeah, not going to happen.

Rick: You be careful out there.
Michonne: I always am. Any requests? Books, comics, some stale M&Ms?
Carl: You're the one who likes stale M&Ms.
Michonne: Yep, and I'll definitely be looking for some. I'l look for some stuff you like too. Why don't you wear your hat anymore?
Carl: It's not a farming hat. See you soon?
Michonne: Pretty soon.

Carl: Dad, I'm sorry. I've been trying.
Rick: Yeah, I know. I'm proud.
Carl: Dad, when can I have my gun back?

Ryan: Lizzie and Mika, you care about them. I've seen it. They don't have anybody else. Kids on their own, they don't have a chance. Can you look out for them? Like they're yours?
Carol: Yeah. Yeah I can. I will. Ryan, you're going to have to let them say goodbye, okay?
Ryan: (crying) Okay.

Mika: Dad? We have to go get Dr. S.
Carol: Honey, he's been bitten. The Dr. won't help.
Ryan: (to Lizzie) Take care of your sister.

Carol: Patrick a fine yesterday, and he died overnight. Two people died that quick? We have to separate everyone that's been exposed.
Daryl: That's everyone in that cell block. That's all of us, maybe more.
Hershel: We know that this sickness can be lethal. We don't know how easily it spreads. Is anyone else showing symptoms that we know of?
Carol: We can't just wait and see. I mean, there's children. It isn't just the illness. People die, they become a threat.
Hershel: We need a place for them to go. They can't stay in D. We can't risk going in there to clean it up.
Carol: We can use cell block A.
Glenn: Death row? Not sure that's much of an upgrade.
Daryl: It's clean, that's an upgrade.

Carl: Hey Dad, Carol's been teaching the kids how to use weapons. How to kill. Their parents don't know and she doesn't want you to know. I think you should let her. I know you're going to say it's not up to you, but it can be. Dad?
Rick: Thank you for telling me.
Carl: Yeah
Rick: I won't stop her, I won't say anything. Carl? (Rick gives Carl his gun back)
