[Carol prepares to leave for Terminus to save Rick and the group]
Tyreese Williams: How are you gonna do this?
Carol Peletier: I'm gonna kill people.

[Terminan Martin sets up firework charges while talking on the walkie-talkie]
Female Terminan on Radio: 10-minute count. You screw up. You're on your own, Martin.
Martin: [Martin replies back on the radio] You don't have to tell me. I wipe my own ass. Alex didn't get it. See, I knew the chick with the sword was bad news. Bitch looked like a weapon with a weapon.
Female Terminan on Radio: He was always a sloppy-ass mother.
Martin: [Martin talks into the radio] Yeah, I told Albert I want the kid's hat after they bleed him out.
Carol Peletier: [Carol holds a gun up to Martin's head] Keep your finger off the button and drop it.
Female Terminan on Radio: They're only doing eight before public face.
Martin: Listen, y'all don't have to do this. Whatever you want, we have a place where everybody is welcome.
Tyreese Williams: Shut up, man.
Martin: Okay.
Carol Peletier: We're friends of the chick with the sword and the kid in the hat.

[Terminus Martin talks to Tyreese in the abandoned cabin]
Martin: [sighs] I don't have any friends. I mean, I know people. They're just assholes I stay alive with. The other one your friend? The woman? I used to have them. Used to watch football on Sundays. Went to Church. I know I did. But I can't picture it anymore. It's funny how you don't even notice the time go by. Horrible shit just stacks up day after day. You get used to it.
Tyreese Williams: I haven't got used to it.
Martin: Of course you haven't. You're the kind of guy who saves babies. It's kind of like saving an anchor when you're stuck on a boat in the middle of the ocean. Been behind some kind of walls, right? You're still around, but haven't had to get your hands dirty. I can tell. See, you're a good guy.
Tyreese Williams: You have no idea about the things I've done.
Martin: You're a good guy. That's why you're gonna die today. It's why the baby's gonna die.
[Tyreese stands up taking Martin's comments as a threat]
Martin: Or... you can get in that car, get out of here, keep on being lucky.
Tyreese Williams: You think you're gonna kill me?
Martin: Why haven't you killed me? How does having me alive help you? Why the hell are you even talking to me? Take her, take the car, and go. I don't want to do this today.

[Tyreese continues to talk to Terminus Martin]
Tyreese Williams: Nobody's got to die today.
Martin: Man, if you believe that... then it's definitely going to be you and the kid.


"The Walking Dead: What Happened and What's Going On (#5.9)" (2015)
[Noah talks to Tyreese in the car]
Noah: I never wanted to kill anybody before.
Tyreese Williams: I've wanted that. But it just made it so I didn't see anything except what I wanted. I wasn't facing it.
Noah: Facing what?
Tyreese Williams: What happened, what's going on. My dad always told Sasha and me that it was our duty as citizens of the world to keep up with the news. When I was little and in his car, there were always those stories on the radio. Something happens 1,000 miles away or down the block. Some kind of horror I couldn't even wrap my head around. But he didn't change the channel. He didn't turn it off. He just kept listening. To face it. Keeping your eyes open. My dad always called that paying the high cost of living.
Noah: I lost my dad in Atlanta. I think he would've liked yours. Still got a mom and a couple of twin brothers. I hope.
Tyreese Williams: I hope so, too.

[Tyreese begins to hallucinate again when he see's Beth playing the guitar]
Beth Greene: [Beth sings to Tyreese] Every man has a right to live / Love is all we have to give / Together we struggle... by our will to survive / And together we fight just to stay alive / Struggling man has got to move / Struggling man no time to lose / I'm a struggling man / And I've got to move on
Beth Greene: [Beth talks to Tyreese] It's okay, Tyreese. You got to know that now.
Bob Stookey: It's okay that you didn't want to be a part of it anymore Ty.
Beth Greene: You don't have to be a part of it.
Martin: See, that's your problem right there.
Tyreese Williams: What's my problem?
Martin: You don't want to be part of it, but part of it is being now. That's what it is. Open your eyes.
Beth Greene: You don't have to. Not if you don't want to.
Mika Samuels: You don't. It's better now.
The Governor: You told me you'd earn your keep. You had no idea what you were talking about, did you? Did you? Your eyes were open, but you didn't want to see. Even though I made you see it. I showed you. Did you adapt? Did you change? No. That you would sit there in front of a woman who killed someone you loved... and you would forgive her.
Bob Stookey: That's all there is.
The Governor: This is all there is. This is it.
Tyreese Williams: I didn't know who I was talking to. I said I would do what I had to, to earn my keep. But I didn't know you. But I know - I know who I am. I know what happened and what's going on. I know. You didn't show me shit. You, you're dead. Everything that you were is dead. And it's - It's not over. I forgave her because... it's not over.
Tyreese Williams: [Tyreese begins crying] It's not over. It's not - It's not over. I didn't turn away. I kept listening to the news so I could do what I could to help. I'm not giving up. You hear? I'm not giving up! People like me - People like me, they can live. Ain't nobody got to die today.
The Governor: You have to pay the bill.
[the Governor pushes Tyreese back to the ground, as Lizzie quietly moves up next to Tyreese with a smile, holding up Tyreese's arm]
The Governor: [when Tyreese suddenly wakes up out of a hallucination, seeing Rick holding up his arm]
Rick Grimes: You hold him!
Glenn Rhee: I got it! Go!
Rick Grimes: One hit! Clean! Go!
[Michonne takes a swing with her samurai sword to Tyreese's arm]

[Tyreese hallucinates while in the vehicle with Rick's group]
Voice on the Radio: [the voice on the radio with the British accent comes on in the car] There have been troubling reports of cannibalism having broken out of refugee camps along the republic's transportation corridor. And despite the string of victories by rebel forces, there are disturbing reports of increasing the brutality of their tactics. Including the wholesale destruction of villages, burning down local prisons, targeting of civilians, and even the widespread mutilation of children and young mothers. And this seems like only the beginning of their campaign that they label as the endless war against...
Tyreese Williams: Turn it off.
Bob Stookey: You sure?
Beth Greene: It's okay, Tyreese. You got to know that now.
Lizzie Samuels: It isn't just okay.
Mika Samuels: It's better now.

[Sasha rips the shirt that she's wearing, the shirt that previously belonged to Bob]
Tyreese Williams: I'm gonna say it and you're gonna listen. And then, when you're ready, you let me help you. You got to say good-bye. He saw it. He felt it. And you hold onto whatever you want to, but I think you should hold onto that.
Sasha Williams: I should have been able to do it by myself.

Tyreese Williams: You could've. But you let yourself feel it. Kept your eyes open. You let me help you.

Hershel Greene: He is.
Daryl Dixon: You're a tough son of a bitch.
Hershel Greene: I am.
