The Walking Dead TV show Top Quotes
The Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic horror television series for AMC based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. The series features a large ensemble cast as survivors of a zombie apocalypse, trying to stay alive under near-constant threat of attacks from the mindless zombies, colloquially known as “walkers”. However, with the fall of humanity, these survivors also face conflict from other living survivors who have formed groups and communities with their own sets of laws and morals, often leading to hostile conflict between the human communities. Andrew Lincoln played the series’ lead character, Rick Grimes, until his departure during the ninth season. Other long-standing cast members have included Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, and Danai Gurira.

Carol Peletier: You need to know something. You did more for my little girl today than her own daddy did in his whole life.
Daryl Dixon: I didn’t do anything Rick or Shane wouldn’t have done.
Carol Peletier: I know. You’re every bit as good as them. Every bit.
Rick Grimes: [fed up with everyone questioning his leadership] Maybe you people are better off without me. Go ahead. I say there’s a place for us, but maybe it’s just another pipe dream. Maybe I’m fooling myself again. Why don’t you go find out yourself? Send me a postcard! Go on, there’s the door. You can do better, let’s see how far you get.
[no one moves or says anything]
Rick Grimes: No takers? Fine, but get one thing straight. If you’re staying, this isn’t a democracy anymore.
Merle Dixon: Hey, man, I ain’t wasting my bullets on a couple of strangers that ain’t never cooked me a meal or felicitated my piece. That’s my policy.
Carl Grimes: [to an unconscious Rick, lying on the sofa, whom Carl thinks has died] I killed 3 walkers. They’re at the door, they were gonna get in. But… I lured them away. I killed them. I saved you. I saved you! I didn’t forget while you had us playing farmer. I still know how to survive. Lucky for us. I don’t need you anymore. I don’t need you to protect me anymore. I can take care of myself. You can’t even protect me anyways! You couldn’t protect Judith! You couldn’t protect… Hershel or Glenn or Maggie, Michonne, Daryl or Mom. You just wanted to plant vegetables. You just wanted to hide! He knew where we were and you DIDN’T CARE! You just hid behind those fences and WAITED FOR…! They’re all gone now BECAUSE OF YOU! THEY COUNTED ON YOU, YOU WERE THEIR LEADER! But now, you’re nothing.
Shane Walsh: THESE THINGS AIN’T SICK! They’re not people! They’re dead! Ain’t got to feel nothin’ ’cause all they do, they KILL! These things right here, they’re the things that killed Amy! They killed Otis! And they’ll kill all of us!
Rick Grimes: Shane, enough!
Shane Walsh: Hey you’re right, man. That is enough.
Merle Dixon: How come we never hooked up?
Andrea Harrison: You called me a whore and a rug muncher.
Merle Dixon: Got a way with words, don’t I?
The Governor: I thought you were a cop, not a lawyer.
Rick Grimes: Either way, I don’t pretend to be a governor.
The Governor: I told you, I’m their leader.
Rick Grimes: You’re the town drunk who knocked over my fence and ripped up my yard, nothing more.
The Governor: Didn’t you ever misjudge someone? Hm? Andrea told me about your baby. That it might be your partner’s. But you’re caring for her and I admire that. Restitution for your own lack of insight. For failing to see the devil beside you.
Rick Grimes: Oh, I see him all right.
Daryl Dixon: You got some balls for a Chinaman.
Glenn Rhee: I’m Korean.
Daryl Dixon: Whatever.
Rick Grimes: You’re a man of God. Have some faith.
Hershel Greene: I can’t profess to understand God’s plan. Christ promised the resurrection of the dead. I just thought he had something a little different in mind.
Negan: [to Rick] Sucks, don’t it? The moment you realize you don’t know shit.
Eugene Porter: It’s the one who pushed us all to take the Saviors home. He’s the one who jumped headlong into this shit storm with no waiters.
Rosita Espinosa: [Turns around and pulls a gun on Eugene, holding the gun under his chin, with Eugene scared to death] You’re selfish and you’re a coward and you’re a traitor! You turned your back on the only friends you ever had! Shooting you in the head, right here, would actually make the world a better place.
[She forcefully releases the gun from under Eugene’s chin]
Rosita Espinosa: We’re not gonna kill you because we give a rat’s ass about you! We just think of what’s in there.
[Violently pointing to Eugene’s head]
Rosita Espinosa: We’re gonna stick you in the darkest hole we can find and the only time you’ll see the light of day is when we need you to teach us how to do something. So, don’t worry, you’ll get what you want, you’ll live. But we’re gonna force you to do something useful with your pathetic life!
[She then shoves him in front of her, and they keep moving]
Glenn Rhee: [as Lori, Glenn, Carol, Maggie, & Beth keep watch over an unconscious Hershel, Carl comes in with supplies] I thought you were organizing the food?
Carl Grimes: Even better. Check it out.
Lori Grimes: [Gasps] Where did you get this?
Carl Grimes: Found the infirmary. Wasn’t much left, but I cleared it out.
Lori Grimes: You went by yourself?
Carl Grimes: Yeah.
Lori Grimes: [Shocked] Are you crazy?
Carl Grimes: No big deal. I killed two walkers.
Lori Grimes: [Looking back and forth between Carl and Hershel] You – -All right, do you see this? This was with the whole group.
Carl Grimes: We needed supplies, so I got them.
Lori Grimes: I appreciate that, but – -!
Carl Grimes: – -THEN GET OFF MY BACK!
Beth Greene: Carl! She’s your Mother, you can’t talk to her like that.
Lori Grimes: Listen, I think it’s great that you want to help, but – –
[Carl runs off, feeling insulted and unappreciated]
Rick Grimes: [to an unconscious Carl, who is lying in bed, recovering after having his right eye being shot out] I was wrong. I thought after living behind these walls for so long that… maybe they couldn’t learn. But today, I saw what they could do, what ‘we’ could do. If we work together, we’ll rebuild the walls. We’ll expand the walls. There’ll be more, there’s got to be more. Everything Deanna was talking about… is possible. It’s all possible, I see that now. When I was out there… with them… when it was over… when I knew we had this place again, I had this feeling… it took me a while to remember what it was…
[Rick begins to cry a little]
Rick Grimes: … because I hadn’t felt it since before I woke up in that hospital.
[Crying even more]
Rick Grimes: I wanna show you the new world, Carl. I want to make it a reality for you. Please, Carl… let me show you.
[Carl’s hand hold’s onto Rick’s]
