Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Daryl Dixon: Look at him. Hanging up there like a big piñata. The other geeks came and ate all the flesh off his legs.
  • Andrea: I thought we were changing the subject.
  • Daryl Dixon: Call that payback for laughing about my itchy ass.


  • Daryl Dixon: "Got bit. Fever hit. World gone to shit. Might as well quit." Dumbass didn't know enough to shoot himself in the head. Turns himself into a swinging piece of bait. And a mess.


  • Rick Grimes: There is still a life for us, a place maybe like this. It isn't all death, out there; it can't be. We just have to be strong enough, after all we've seen, to still believe that. Why is it better for Carl to live, even in this world? He talked about the deer.


  • Patricia: Merle Dixon's clap is the best thing that ever happened to you.
