Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Michonne: Hey. Do you have a problem with me?
  • Heath: I'm just looking out for my people.
  • Michonne: And you think that I'm not?
  • Heath: Look, I heard what Rick said.
  • Michonne: Which part?
  • Heath: How they wouldn't all make it. They meaning us and not you. How you should leave us behind if we can't keep up.
  • Michonne: Glenn is out there risking his life for you and for everyone else. And I'm still here, so I don't know what the hell you're talking about.
  • Heath: Things are gonna get worse and then we'll see.
  • Michonne: Yeah, we will. Rick said what he said because sometimes you don't have a choice.
  • Heath: That is not how we do it.
  • Michonne: Because you've never had to do it any other way. You haven't been through it, not really. Not like Rick. Rick was out there, I was out there. We know, you don't. But if you don't learn, you will die, we will.
  • Heath: I've been doing runs from the start, okay? I know what it's like.
  • Michonne: Have you ever had to kill people because they had already killed your friends and were coming for you next? Have you ever done things that made you feel afraid of yourself afterward? Have you ever been covered in so much blood that you didn't know if it was yours or walkers' or your friends'? Huh? Then you don't know.

....

  • Rick Grimes: Glenn, Michonne. If something's in front of you, you kill it. No hiding, no waiting. You keep going.
  • Glenn Rhee: I'm going with you, you can't do this on your own.
  • Rick Grimes: Glenn, I can do this.
  • Michonne: You need to help me. We've got to get these people back.
  • Rick Grimes: Yeah. Thing is, they aren't all gonna make it.
  • Michonne: Rick.
  • Rick Grimes: You try to save them, you try, but if they can't keep up, you keep going. You have to. You make sure you get back.

....

  • Rick Grimes: There's gunfire coming from back home. We gotta sit with it and hope they can handle it. I think they can. They have to. We keep going forward for them. Can't turn back 'cause we're afraid.
  • Abraham Ford: We ain't afraid.
  • Rick Grimes: This is for them. Going back now before it's done, that'd be for us. The herd has to almost be here.

....

  • Nicholas: Thank you. [To Glenn before shooting himself in the head].
