  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • T-Dog: (sizing up the situation as he sees it) I'm talking about two good ole' boy cowboy sheriffs and a redneck whose brother cut off his own hand because I dropped a key. Who in that scenario is the first that's gonna be lynched.
      Dale: You can't be serious. Am I missing something? Those two cowboys have done alright by us and if I'm not mistaken that redneck went out of his way to save your ass more than once.

    • Lori: Otis, the idiot who shot my son.
      Herschel: Ma'am, it was an accident.
      Lori: I'll take that under advisement later, for now he is the idiot who shot our son.

    • Glenn: (describing Maggie's introduction to the group) All I know is that this chick rode out of nowhere like Zorro on a horse and took Lori away.

    • Otis: (getting into the truck with the rifle he shot Carl with) It's the only one I got.
      Shane: (looking forward with disbelief) This has turned into a strange day.
      Otis: Didn't it though?

    • Rick: (outside the room Carl is in) Should be me in there.
      Shane: You been there, partner, right? But you pulled through, and so will he.
      Rick: Is that why I got out of that hospital, found my family, for it to end here, like this? Is this some sort of sick joke?

    • Daryl: (frustrated with the group being so negative) It's a waste of time, all this hopin' and prayin'. We're going to locate that little girl, and she's gonna be just fine. Am I the only one Zen around here? Good lord.

    • Dale: Listen, your veins are very discolored. You got a hell of an infection there. You could die from blood poisoning.
      T-Dog: (laughs) Oh, man. Wouldn't that be the way? World gone to hell, the dead risen up to eat the living and Theodore Douglas is done here by a cut on his arm.
      (laughs harder)

    • Daryl: Shut up.
      (shoots a Walker)

  • Allusions

    • The bag of drugs that Daryl has with him is filled with blue colored crystal meth, which is similar to the meth cooked and sold by Walter White on another AMC TV show, Breaking Bad.

    • FEMA and the Zombie Apocalypse
      In 2010, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) along with the CDCput out a pamplet on being prepared for a Zombie Apocalypse. This was to bring about awareness on what a person should have prepared no matter the disaster. To their dismay, Dale and T-dog couldn't find one of the chief items on the list among all the cars; first aid supplies.
