    • Glenn: I had to tell them.
      Maggie: You did not!
      Glenn: No. I did! Okay? I wanted to! You see, I forgot. Okay? I forgot or I stopped thinking about it or maybe I didn't wannna think about it. I let them lower me into that well like it was fun. Like I was playing Portal. Eh, that's a video game.
      Maggie: Of course it's a video game.
      Glenn: And then the pharmacy happened yesterday and I realized something. I forgot that they're dangerous. I don't care if they're sick people or dead people. They're dangerous. And then I realized something else. That I don't want you in danger ever. So, I hate to blow your dad's big secret, but I'm sick of secrets. Secrets get you killed. And I'd rather have you pissed off at me and alive than liking me and dead. So that's why I told him.
      (Glenn walks away)
      Maggie: Hey, walker bait.
      Glenn: Don't call me that.
      (Maggie walks up to Glenn)
      Maggie: Okay, Glenn.
      (Maggie smiles; they kiss)

    • Shane: These things ain't sick. They're not people. They're dead. Ain't gonna feel nothing for them 'cause all they do, they kill! These things right here, they're the things that killed Amy. They killed Otis. They're gonna kill all of us.
      (pulls out gun)
      Shane: Hey, Hershel, man, let me ask you something. Can a living breathing person, could they walk away from this?
      (shoots walker in chest)
      Rick: No! Stop it!
      Shane: That's three rounds in the chest. Could someone who's alive, can they just take that? Why is it still coming?
      (shoots walker in chest again)
      Shane: That's its heart, its lungs. Why is it still coming?
      (shoots it more)
      Rick: Shane, enough!
      Shane: Yeah, you're right, man. That is enough.
      (shoots walker in the head, killing it)

    • Dale: This is where you belong, Shane.
      Shane: How's that, Dale?
      Dale: This world, what it is now, this is where you belong. And I may not have what it takes to last for long, but that's okay. 'Cause at least I can say when the world goes to s***, I didn't let it take me down with it.
      Shane: Fair enough.

    • Shane: Dale, shut up. Just shut up and give me the guns.
      Dale: Am I gonna have to shoot you? Do I have to kill you? Is that what it's gonna take?
      Shane: Eh. Yeah. That's what it's gonna take.

    • Rick: (to Herschel) You and I have our differences, the way we look at walkers. Those people; they may be dead, they may be alive, but my people? Us? We are alive, right now, right in front of you.
