Glenn: I had to tell them!
Maggie: You did not!
Glenn: No, I did. Okay? I wanted to. You see, I forgot. Okay? I forgot or I stopped thinking about it or maybe I didn't want to think about it. I let them lower me into that well like it was fun, like I was playing "Portal." - It's a video game...
Maggie: Of course it's a video game.
Glenn: And then the pharmacy happened yesterday and I realized something. I forgot that they're dangerous. I don't care if they're sick people or dead people, they're dangerous. And then I realized ...

One of the Best Episodes...
21 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That there has been, there is, and possibly that there is going to be!!! It is just perfectly mastered!!! It just touches you, and very deeply! I could, I would, and I will watch it again! It is so much drama, intensity, anger, sadness, happiness, and much more feelings involved in this episode, that it is just AMAZING! You disagree so much with Shane, that at the same time you just have to agree with him, and understand that he is right! And that for as much as you wish somebody would just shoot him in the head, as if he was a Walker, He is doing the right thing, and specially, the necessary thing to do!!! And let's not even get into Rick, because, sometimes he is kind of a softy, but at the end of the episode, he did the perfect thing to do! In the end what happened to Sophia, it is kind of his fault. And he dealt with it like a man, like he should!
