The best quotes from the mid-season finale "Pretty Much Dead Already" are below:
Rick to Herschel: "The first time I saw a walker, it was just half a body, snapping at me from the ground and my first inclination wasn't to kill it. But what the world is out there isn't what you saw on T.V. It is much, much worse and it changes you. Either into one of them, or something a lot less than the person you were."
Glenn to the group: "So, uh, guys? The barns full of walkers."
Rick to Herschel: "My wife is pregnant. That is either a gift here, or a death sentence out there."
Shane to Daryl about finding Sofia: "Let me tell you something else, man: If she was alive out there and saw you coming, all miffed out with your buck knife and geek ears around your neck, she'd run in the other direction!"
Maggie to Glenn: "Give me your hat."
Glenn (after she crushes an egg in it): "Why would you waste an egg like that?"
Maggie: "I figured it was rotten."
Carl to Lori: "I'm not leaving until we find Sofia. And I don't want to go, even after that."
Carol, about Sofia, to Daryl: "We don't know if we're going to find her, Daryl. We don't. I don't."
Carol: "Can't lose you too."
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."
Maggie to Herschel: "A new command I give to you: Love one another, as I have loved you. That's what you told me, right? I was mad. Mad about you marrying Annette. I was 14 years old and I was awful; to you more than anybody. All I wanted to do was smoke and shoplift. Love one another, that's what you told me."
Well, team, that was an explosive mid-season finale! Join me in 77 days for another round of the best of the best!
