The Walking Dead (2010– )
Andrew Lincoln: Rick Grimes, Radio Personality
Rick Grimes : [uncensored version] They are fucking with the wrong people.
Rick Grimes : [when he kills Shane] Damn you for making me do this, Shane! This was you, not me! YOU did this to us! This was you! Not me! Not me!
Rick Grimes : So this is where you plan to do it?
Shane Walsh : As good a place as any.
Rick Grimes : At least have the balls to call this what it is: murder. You really believe if you walk back onto that farm alone, no me, no Randall...
Shane Walsh : Why don't you hush up?
Rick Grimes : You really believe they're gonna buy whatever bullshit story you cook up?
Shane Walsh : That's just it, it ain't no story. I saw that prisoner shoot you down. I ran after him, I snapped his neck. It ain't gonna be easy, but Lori and Carl, they'll get over you. They done it before. They just gonna have to.
Rick Grimes : Why? Why now? I thought we worked this all out.
Shane Walsh : [chuckling] We tried to kill each other, man. What you think, we were just gonna forget about it? Oh, we gonna ride off into the sunset together?
Rick Grimes : You're gonna kill me in cold blood? Screw my wife? Have my children, *my* children, call you "daddy"? Is that what you want? That life won't be worth a damn. I know you. You won't be able to live with this.
Shane Walsh : What you know 'bout what I can live with? You got no idea what I can live with, what I live with! You wanna talk about what I can do, Rick? How 'bout what you can do.
Shane Walsh : Here I am. Come on, man, raise your gun.
Rick Grimes : No. No, I will not.
Shane Walsh : What happened, Rick? I thought you weren't the good guy anymore; ain't that what you said? Even right here, right now, you ain't gonna fight for 'em? I'm a better father than you, Rick! I'm better for Lori than you, man! It's because I'm a better man than you, Rick, 'cause I can be here and I'll fight for it. But you come back here and you just *destroy* everything!... You got a broken woman. Y-you got a weak boy. You ain't got the first clue on how to fix it.
[points gun at Rick]
Shane Walsh : Raise your gun.
Rick Grimes : You're gonna have to kill an unarmed man.
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.
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.
Rick Grimes : CARL!
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.
[shoots one of the walkers]
Michonne : [after Rick opens the door to find Milton lying on the floor, dead, and Andrea propped up against the wall] Andrea!
[Michonne runs over to Andrea]
Andrea Harrison : [They enter the room] I tried to stop him.
Michonne : You're burning up.
Andrea Harrison : [She pulls her coat back to reveal a bloody Walker bite, with Rick visibly upset] Judith, Carl, the rest of them...
Rick Grimes : Us. The rest... of us.
Andrea Harrison : Are they alive?
Rick Grimes : Yeah. They're alive.
Andrea Harrison : [Looks to Michonne] It's good you found them.
Michonne : [Nodding her head, while crying]
Andrea Harrison : No one can make it alone now.
Daryl Dixon : They never could.
Andrea Harrison : [to Rick] I just didn't want anyone to die.
[Sitting up a little]
Andrea Harrison : I can do it myself.
Michonne : No!
Andrea Harrison : I have to... while I still can.
[Turns back to Rick]
Andrea Harrison : Please.
Rick Grimes : [Still visibly saddened]
Andrea Harrison : I know how the safety works.
Rick Grimes : [Handing her his gun, respecting her wishes]
Michonne : Well, I'm not going anywhere.
Andrea Harrison : [Looks up at Daryl, with Daryl, also, visibly saddened, then looks back at Rick] I tried.
Rick Grimes : Yeah... You did. You did.
Carol Peletier : [to Daryl, as they all sit around a campfire with T-Dog keeping watch and Rick patrolling the area] We're not safe with him. Keeping something like that from us. Why do you need him? He's just gonna pull you down.
Daryl Dixon : Nah. Rick's done all right by me.
Carol Peletier : You're his henchman... and I'm a burden. We deserve better.
Daryl Dixon : What do you want?
Carol Peletier : A man of honor.
Daryl Dixon : Rick has honor.
Maggie Greene : [to Glenn after hearing Carol] I think we should take our chances.
Hershel Greene : Don't be foolish. There's no food, no fuel, no ammo.
Beth Greene : [Hearing a sound nearby] What was that?
Daryl Dixon : [as they all stand up] Could be anything. A raccoon, a possum...
Glenn Rhee : ...A walker.
Carol Peletier : We need to leave. I mean, what are we waiting for?
Theodore 'T-Dog' Douglas : Which way?
Maggie Greene : It came from over there.
Beth Greene : Back from where we came.
Maggie Greene : Yeah.
Rick Grimes : The last thing we need is for everyone to go running off in the dark. We don't have the vehicles. No one's traveling on foot.
Hershel Greene : Don't panic.
Maggie Greene : I'm not. I'm not sitting here waiting for another herd to blow through. We need to move now.
Rick Grimes : No one's going anywhere.
[Everyone begins to stare at Rick, silently questioning him]
Carol Peletier : Do something.
Rick Grimes : I AM DOING SOMETHING! I'm keeping this group together, ALIVE! I've been doing that all along, no matter what! I DIDN'T ASK FOR THIS! I KILLED MY BEST FRIEND FOR YOU PEOPLE, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!
[They all stare at him in disbelief and shock]
Rick Grimes : You saw what he was like... how he pushed me... how he compromised us... how he threatened us. He staged the whole Randall thing, led me out to put a bullet in my back. He gave me no CHOICE! He was my friend, but he came after me.
Carl Grimes : [Carl turns and hugs Lori as he begins sobbing into Lori's shoulder]
Rick Grimes : My hands are clean.
[They still stand there in shock and disbelief]
Rick Grimes : Maybe you people are better off without me. Go ahead... I say there's a place for us, but maybe, maybe it's just another pipe dream. May... Maybe I'm fooling myself again. What? Why don't... Why don't you go on and find out yourself! Send me a postcard!
[Nobody does or says anything]
Rick Grimes : Go on, there's the door. Think you can do better? Let's see how far you get.
[They continue to remain silent]
Rick Grimes : No takers? Fine. We get one thing straight: You're staying. This isn't a democracy anymore.
[He walks off to continue patrolling the area, as everyone stands there, still in silence as the camera pans over the trees and focuses on the prison off in the distance]
