Michonne: [Michonne with tears in her eyes] I saw the fences were down. I heard the moans. It was over. And Mike and Terry, they were high when it happened. They were bit. Could have stopped it. Could have killed them. But I let them turn. I made it so they couldn't bite, couldn't scratch. I tied chains around their necks. It was insane. It was sick. It felt like what I deserved, dragging them around so that I would always know. I found out that they kept me safe. They hid me. The walkers didn't see me anymore. I was just another monster. And I was. Me. I was gone for a long time. But then Andrea brought me back. Your dad brought me back. You did. I see how you've been looking at your dad. You don't have to be afraid of me or him.

[Carl tells Michonne that he's a monster just like the rest of them]
Carl Grimes: [about Rick] He told me the other day that he was proud of me. That I was a good man. I'm not.
Michonne: Carl.
Carl Grimes: [Carl sniffles] I know more now. About what he wanted from me. And I tried, but... I still have these thoughts.
Carl Grimes: [Carl with tears in his eyes] I'm not what he thinks I am. I'm just another monster, too.

[Alex pats down Rick's group while the group lays down their weapons]

Rick Grimes: You would.
Alex: They deserve it?
Carl Grimes: Yes.

Carl Grimes: [Carl with tears in his eyes] You don't have to do this.
Lori Grimes: [Lori smiles] You're gonna be fine. You are gonna beat this world. I know you will. You are smart, and you are strong, and you are so brave, and I love you.

Carl Grimes: Hershel. If you have to go, then I have to come with you.

[Hershel sees Carl have his gun back]
Hershel Greene: When did your dad give it back?
Carl Grimes: Yesterday. After everything happened.
Hershel Greene: You've grown a lot these last few months. There's a responsibility about you. I think it's done you good to step back.
Carl Grimes: Yeah. It was all right. Can't be like that all the time.

[Hershel and Carl stand in the woods alone]
Hershel Greene: It's peaceful out here. These last couple days, we might be safer outside those walls than in.
Carl Grimes: [when Carl sees a Walker stuck to a tree stump] No, we're not.
Hershel Greene: Let's wrap this up.

[Rick teaches Carl some advice about thinking before talking]
Carl Grimes: [about Carol] I said it's stupid to believe in heaven. 'Cause it is.

Carl Grimes: But she...
Rick Grimes: Don't... don't talk. Think. It's a good rule of thumb for life.
Carl Grimes: Mom always wants you to talk more.
Rick Grimes: Don't change the subject. You owe Carol an apology. You made a mistake. Fix it.
Carl Grimes: [about Randall] Is that why you're gonna kill that guy? Fixing your mistake?

Carl Grimes: You knew?
Enid: You're very loud.
Enid: [Carl snaps a couple twigs under his feet as Enid says this] Can you go back? To be honest, you scare me.
Carl Grimes: You shouldn't sneak out by yourself. Two people just died.
Enid: [Enid steps out from behind a tree] Oh, come on. People will always die. You know that.
