  • Trivia

    • From the opening scene, most of the Atlanta survivors stayed down at the barn. But when Glenn, Rick and Shane followed Herschel up to his house, there was no one down at the barn but the dead Walkers. The next scene showing the barn had them all down their again.

    • After the opening credits, the scene opens up with a shot of a windmill. The windmill is from the Aermotor Company that sells windmills like that to pump water out of the ground.

    • The total number of Walkers in Herschel's barn was 15: twelve neighbors, two of Herschel's relations and Sophia.

  • Quotes

    • Rick: (on Sophia being in the barn) She was there all the time.
      Lori: And you did everything you could.
      Rick: Yeah I know, I always do don't I? Went after her, protected her, kill those Walkers but she still got bit. Carl still got shot. People counting on me and I had them chasing a ghost in the forest.

    • Glenn: (alone with Maggie) I have to ask you. Did you know she was in the barn?
      Maggie: (long pause with a disbelief look)
      Glenn: (walking toward a window and looking out) Maybe in some weird way this is for the best. At least we know and now we can move on.

    • Rick: We don't know anything about you.
      Dave: No, that's true. You don't know anything about us. You don't what we had to go through out there, the things we've had to do. I bet you've had to do some of those things yourself. Am I right? 'Cause ain't nobody's hands clean in what's left of this world. We're all the same.

    • Dave: Walkers? That what you call them?
      Glenn: Yeah.
      Dave: That's good. I like that. I like that better than lamebrains.
      Tony: More succinct.
      Dave: Okay, Tony went to college.
      Tony: Two years.

    • Dave: I'm Dave. That scrawny-looking douche bag is Tony.
      Tony: Eat me, Dave.
      Dave: Hey, maybe someday I will.

    • Herschel: (to Rick) There is no hope for any of us.

  • Notes
