    • Rick: We're not going to hurt you unless you try something stupid first.

    • Merle: So tell me, where y'all been at?
      Glenn: It's just a matter of time before they come looking.
      Merle: I'll bake a cake with pink frosting. Would they like that? Ain't nobody coming.
      Glenn: Rick is. And when he gets here--
      Merle: He's gonna do nothing, not if he wants you and Bo Peep back. Think I'm in this by my self?
      Glenn: You can't take us all. There's too many of us.
      Merle: There ain't a pair of nuts between the whole pussy lot of you.
      Glenn: We've been on the road, not hiding in some dungeon. Rick, Shane, Daryl, Jim, Andrea.
