  • When Carl Grimes approaches the white house with the solar powered light in his hand, he is holding it so that his thumb and index fingers are pointing to the top of the light. When the camera angle changes, and Carl is trying to knock down the door, his thumb and index fingers are now pointing to the bottom of the light where the stake goes into the ground. [10]

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Michonne: Michonne: I've never seen a gorilla drive a car before, but if you put it in a museum, I'm not going to call it art.


  • Carl Grimes: It's a strong knot, clove hitch. Shane taught me. Remember him?
  • Rick Grimes: Yeah, I remember him. I remember him ever day. Is there something else you want to say to me?


  • Rick Grimes: Wait outside, okay? Keep watch.
  • Carl Grimes: You keep watch. You can barely stand, I'm not going to let you go in there alone.
  • Rick Grimes: Excuse me?
  • Carl Grimes: We've done this before. I'm gonna help you clear it. You should just let me do it myself.
  • Rick Grimes: Let's go.


  • Michonne: Mike, I miss you. I missed you even when I was with you. Back at the camp. It wasn't you who did it. You were wrong, because I'm still here. And you could be too, and he could be...I know the answer. I know why.
