No Sanctuary [5.01][edit]

Alex: We should never have put up the signs. What the hell did we think was gonna happen? We brought them here.
Gareth: We were trying to do something good. We were being human beings.
Alex: What are we now, Gareth?

Rick Grimes: [to Gareth] There's a compound bow and a machete with a red handle. That's what I'm gonna use to kill you.

Martin: I don't have any friends. I mean, I know people. They're just assholes I stay alive with. I don't have any friends. 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 gotten 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 without a boat in the middle of the ocean. Been behind some kind of walls, right? You're still around, but you haven't had to get your hands dirty. I can tell. See, you're a good guy.

Mary: The signs they were real. It was a sanctuary. People came and took this place.
Carol Peletier: Just tell me where--
Mary: - And they raped and they killed and they laughed over weeks. But we got out and we fought and we got it back. And we heard the message: you're the butcher or you're the cattle.

Eugene Porter: I'm not fleet of foot. I sure as hell can't take a dead one down with sharp buttons and hella confidence.

Strangers [5.02][edit]

Gabriel Stokes: I have no weapons of any kind. The word of God is the only protection I need.

Gabriel Stokes: I'm a sinner. I sin almost every day. But those sins, I confess them to God, not strangers.

Abraham Ford: I'd like to propose a toast. I look around this room and I see survivors. Each and every one of you has earned that title. To the survivors!
[everybody toasts]
Abraham Ford: Is that all you want to be? Wake up in the morning, fight the undead pricks, forage for food, go to sleep at night with two eyes open, rinse and repeat? 'Cause you can do that. I mean, you got the strength. You got the skill. Thing is, for you people, for what you can do, that's just surrender. Now, we get Eugene to Washington and he will make the dead die and the living will have this world again. And that is not a bad takeaway for a little road trip.

Abraham Ford: Come with us. Save the world for that little one. Save it for yourselves. Save it for the people out there who don't got nothing left to do except survive.

Gareth: [to Bob] Good news is you're not dead yet. That's a relief, right? But try not to read too much into the word 'yet' there. It'll just drive you crazy, Bob. I want to explain myself a little. You see, we didn't want to hurt you before. We didn't want to pull you away from your group or scare you. These aren't things that we want to do. They're things we got to do. You and your people took away our home. That's fair play. Now we're out here like everybody else trying to survive. And in order to do that, we have to hunt. Didn't start that way, eating people. It evolved into that. We evolved. We had to. And now we've devolved...into hunters. I told you, I said it. Can't go back, Bob. I just hope you understand that nothing happening to you now is personal. Yeah, you put us in this situation and it is almost kind of a cosmic justice for it to be you, but we would have done this to anybody. We will. But at the end of the day, no matter how much we hate all this ugly business...
[Bob looks down to see his leg has been amputated[
Gareth: ...a man's got to eat. [taking a bite out of a piece of meat] If it makes you feel any better, you taste much better than we thought you would.

Four Walls and a Roof [5.03][edit]

Bob Stookey: [to Gareth and the Hunters] I've been bitten, you stupid pricks! I'm tainted meat!

[Rick has Gareth at his mercy]
Gareth: We can walk away, and we will never cross paths again! I promise you!
Rick Grimes: But you'll cross someone's path. You'd do this to anyone, right? Besides, I already made you a promise.
Gareth: No!
[Rick kills Gareth with his machete]

Gabriel Stokes: This is the Lord's house!
Maggie Greene: No. It's just four walls and a roof.

Bob Stookey: Nightmares end. They shouldn't end who you are. And that is just this dead man's opinion.

[Rick reads the map to Washington DC that Abraham has left for him & his group]
Abraham Ford: Sorry I was an asshole. Come to Washington. The New World’s gonna need Rick Grimes.

Slabtown [5.04][edit]

Noah: [to Beth] See, they think I'm scrawny. They think I'm weak. But they don't know shit about me. About what I am. About what you are.

Joan: I guess it's easy to make a deal with the devil when you're not the one paying the price.

Steven Edwards: When everything started, Dawn reported to a guy named Hanson. They had orders to clear the hospital and move everyone to Butler Park. It was close to midnight when we heard the jets, the bombs. The screams. I was on the third floor. Dawn and Hanson's teams were doing a final sweep. And we knew it was bad. Just didn't know how bad till we came up here. The city had fallen. And everyone we evacuated...they were just...gone.

Dawn Lerner: A good man's mistakes almost ended everything for us, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna let that happen again. Every sacrifice we make needs to be for the greater good. The second it isn't, the second we lose sight of that, it's all over.

Dawn Lerner: Who the hell do you think you are?
Beth Greene: He attacked me. Just like he attacked Joan. Just like you let him. You know what's happening here and you let it happen. You're letting it happen!
Dawn Lerner: So that we make it!
Beth Greene: No one's coming, Dawn! No one's coming. We're all gonna die and you let this happen for nothing.

Self Help [5.05][edit]

Eugene Porter: The smartest man I ever met happened to love my hair. My old boss, T. Brooks Ellis, the director of the Human Genome Project. He said my hair made me look like, and I quote, "a fun guy," which I am. I just ain't Samson.

Abraham Ford: Gotten to the point where everyone alive is strong now. We have to be. You're either strong and they can help you so you help them or you're strong and they can kill ya. So you gotta kill them. You gotta kill them and...[sighs] I want to say it's never easy. That's not the truth. It's the easiest thing in the world now.

Eugene Porter: [to Tara] I appreciate the positive affirmations and looking the other way on the perversion, but I know empirically and definitively I cannot survive on my own.

Tara Chambler: [to Eugene] Welcome to the human race, asshole.

Maggie Greene: I know why you have the haircut.
Eugene Porter: I told you, it's 'cause I like it.
Maggie Greene: I believe that. I like it, too. I think you like it for a reason. You're not the person people think you are. You want 'em to know who you are.
Eugene Porter: Not following you.
Maggie Greene: If you didn't have that mullet, you'd probably be like everybody else in the labs. But you're not like everybody else. I think a lot of people in your position probably woulda given up, but you didn't.
Eugene Porter: There were people-- a lot of them along the way-- they made sure I didn't give up. It wasn't me remotely.
Maggie Greene: It was. You started this thing. And you're not like Samson. He was kind of a mess.
Eugene Porter: Not following you.
Maggie Greene: Well, his story goes that one day when a lion attacked him, God gave him strength and he tore it apart. Then he goes back one day, he's by himself, and he sees that bees have made a hive in the carcass. So later he tells this riddle to people. "Out of the eater, something to eat. Out of the strong, something sweet." And I always thought, "How the hell are people supposed to know the answer when it's just about his own life? When the only place the answer is, is in his own head?"

Consumed [5.06][edit]

Carol Peletier: You said we get to start over.
Daryl Dixon: Yeah.
Carol Peletier: Did you?
Daryl Dixon: I'm tryin'. Why don't you say what's really on your mind?
Carol Peletier: I don't think we get to save people anymore.
Daryl Dixon: Then why are you here?
Carol Peletier: I'm tryin'.

Daryl Dixon: Some days, I don't know what the hell to think.

Carol Peletier: I don't know if I believe in God anymore or heaven, but if I'm going to hell, I'm making damn sure I'm holding it off as long as I can.

Noah: We can get her back. We can get Beth back.
Daryl Dixon: What's it gonna take?
Noah: A lot. They got guns, people.
Daryl Dixon: So do we.

Crossed [5.07][edit]

Coda [5.08][edit]

What Happened and What's Going On [5.09][edit]

Tyreese Williams: 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 I was 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.

Martin Hallucination: I tried to tell you. I tried to tell you, man. It was gonna be you. You're the kind of guy who saves babies. You think Gareth would have been able to follow you guys if you'd have just put a bullet in my brain? Cut me up like your sister did? Oh, whoa, whoa. Don't get up. If I hadn't told them that you were there, maybe Gareth wouldn't have gone after you. Maybe they wouldn't be dead. Maybe Bob wouldn't be dead. Maybe him being alive, maybe something about that would have changed things with Beth. Domino shit. Maybe not. Maybe you wouldn't be bit right now.
Bob Stookey Hallucination: Man, that is bullshit. I got bit at the food bank. It went the way it had to, the way it was always going to. Just like this.

The Governor Hallucination: 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. But 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. That's all there is. 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. It's not over. It's-- 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 me? I'm not giving up! People like me-- people like me, they can live. Ain't nobody got to die today.

Them [5.10][edit]

Gabriel Stokes: If you ever want to talk about your father or about Beth -
Maggie Greene: Please, stop.
Gabriel Stokes: Whenever you're ready, I'm here.
Maggie Greene: You never even met them.
Gabriel Stokes: I know you're in pain.
Maggie Greene: You don't know shit. You had a job. You were there to save your flock, right? But you didn't. You hid. Don't act like that didn't happen.

Abraham Ford: Plan just got dicked!

Glenn Rhee: Hey, we can make it together. But we can only make it together.

Rick Grimes: When I was a kid I asked my grandpa once if he ever killed any Germans in the war. He wouldn't answer. He said that was grown-up stuff, so so I asked if the Germans ever tried to kill him. But he got real quiet. He said he was dead the minute he stepped into enemy territory. Every day he woke up and told himself, "Rest in peace. Now get up and go to war." And then after a few years of pretending he was dead he made it out alive. That's the trick of it, I think. We do what we need to do and then we get to live. But no matter what we find in DC, I know we'll be okay. Because this is how we survive. We tell ourselves that we are the walking dead.
Daryl Dixon: We ain't them. We're not them.

The Distance [5.11][edit]

Remember [5.12][edit]

Rick Grimes: You should keep your gates closed.
Deanna Monroe: Why?
Rick Grimes: Because it's all about survival now. At any cost. People out there are always looking for an angle. Looking to play on your weakness. They measure you by what they can take from you. By how they can use you to live. So bringing people into a place like this now--
Deanna Monroe: Are you telling me not to bring your people in? Are you already looking after this place? Aaron says I can trust you.
Rick Grimes: Aaron doesn't know me. I've killed people. I don't even know how many by now. But I know why they're all dead. They're dead so my family, all those people out there, can be alive. So I could be alive for them.
Deanna Monroe: Sounds like I'd want to be part of your family.

Carol Peletier: I'm gonna wash that vest. We need to keep up appearances, even you.
Daryl Dixon: Hey, I ain't starting now.
Carol Peletier: I'm gonna hose you down in your sleep.
Daryl Dixon: You look ridiculous.

Carl Grimes: I like it here. I like the people. But... they're weak, and I don't want us to get weak too.

Aiden Monroe: You three need new gigs. You're not ready for runs yet.
Glenn Rhee: Yeah, pretty sure you got that backwards.

Rick Grimes: We won't get weak. That's not in us anymore. We'll make it work. And if they can't make it then we'll just take this place.

Forget [5.13][edit]

Daryl Dixon: [to Buttons the horse] Yeah, you used to be somebody's, huh? Now you're just yours.

Aaron: I know you're feeling like an outsider. It's not your fault, you know. Eric and I, we're still looked at as outsiders in a lot of ways. We've heard our fair share of well-meaning, but hilariously offensive things from some otherwise really nice men and women. People are people. The more afraid they get, the more stupid they get. Fear shrinks the brain. They're scared of you and me for different reasons. They're less scared of me because they know me. It's less and less every day. So let them get to know you. You should go to Deanna's party tonight.
Daryl Dixon: I got nothing to prove. I met a lot of bad people out here doing a lot of bad shit. They weren't afraid of nothing.
Aaron: Yeah, they were.

Jessie Anderson: You know, everyone's been through it somehow. Everyone.
Rick Grimes: And a lot of things disappeared.
Jessie Anderson: But a lot of bullshit went with it. They're all from totally different backgrounds, different places. They never would have even met. And now they're part of each other's lives. They are each other's lives. I'm just saying, we all lost things, but we got something back. It isn't enough, but it's something.

Carol Peletier: You can never tell anyone, especially your mom. Because if you do one morning you'll wake up and you won't be in your bed.
Sam Anderson: Where will I be?
Carol Peletier: You'll be outside the walls far, far away tied to a tree. And you'll scream and scream because you'll be so afraid. No one will come to help because no one will hear you. Well, something will hear you. The monsters will come. The ones out there. And you won't be able to run away when they come for you. And they will tear you apart and eat you up all while you're still alive. All while you can still feel it. And then afterwards, no one will ever know what happened to you. Or you can promise not to ever tell anyone what you saw here and then nothing will happen. And you'll get cookies. Lots of cookies.

Spend [5.14][edit]

Reg Monroe: How is it that you called this extremely early morning meeting, yet I'm the one bringing breakfast?
Noah: 'Cause you're a good guy.
Reg Monroe: The evidence seems to go in that direction.

Rick Grimes: You ever heard about the broken window theory? Boils down to this-- you keep the windows intact, you keep society intact.

Eugene Porter: So you’re aware, I’m on record as stating that I should not be here. You well know that I’m not combat ready or even for that matter combat inclined.

Eugene Porter: I got you all to DC, which, in this man's opinion, is damn near nirvana by current standards.
Tara Chambler: Except you didn't get us here. We got you here.
Eugene Porter: But were it not for me and my mention of this city's potential for home and hearth, not a one of you would have had the vision to come here, let alone the cojones to travail such a fraught and punishing pilgrimage. And that, sister, is a fact. That's as cold and hard as they come.
Tara Chambler: God, you're really that much of a coward?
Eugene Porter: Yes, I am. I told you I was.

Try [5.15][edit]

Glenn Rhee: Nicholas, don't talk, just listen. Those four people you lost on that run, that's on you. And Noah, that's on you, too. Those five lives, you have to carry that. People like you are supposed to be dead, but these walls went up just in time, so you're not. You don't go outside those walls anymore. Not by yourself, not with anyone else. And that's how you're gonna survive.
Nicholas: Who the hell do you think you are?
Glenn Rhee: I'm someone who knows who you are. I know what you did. And it's not gonna happen again.

Enid: It's their world. We're just living in it.

Rick Grimes: You still don't get it. None of you do! We know what needs to be done and we do it. We're the ones who live. You, you just sit and plan and hesitate. You pretend like you know when you don't. You wish things weren't what they are. Well, you want to live? You want this place to stay standing? Your way of doing things is done. Things don't get better because you-- you want them to. Starting right now, we have to live in the real world. We have to control who lives here.
Deanna Monroe: That's never been more clear to me than it is right now.
Rick Grimes: Me? Me? You-- You mean-- you mean me? Your way is gonna destroy this place. It's gonna get people killed. It's already gotten people killed. And I'm not gonna stand by and just let it happen. If you don't fight, you die. I'm not gonna stand by--
[Michonne knocks Rick out]

Conquer [5.16][edit]

Morgan Jones: What's the W for?
W Man: You know, the first settlers here, they put bounties on wolves' heads. Brought the natives into it. Made them hunt them. Didn't take them too long to kill them all. They're back now. Thoughts?
Morgan Jones: Everything gets a return.

Reg Monroe: The cavemen, they were all nomads. And they all died. Then we evolved into this and we lived. Civilization starts when we stop running. When we live together. When we stop sending people away from the world and from each other.

Rick Grimes: I don't want to lie anymore.
Carol Peletier: You said you don't want to take this place. And you don't want to lie? Oh, sunshine, you don't get both.

Carol Peletier: [to Pete] I could kill you right now. I could. I will. And then who would believe I did it because I didn't like you? No one. They'd believe you tried to hurt me. Definitely believe that. Come at me. No? Yeah? No. The way this has played out, you have a chance. You're here. Your wife's there. You're a small, weak nothing. And with the world how it is, you're even weaker. Play your cards right, maybe you don't have to die. And I want my dish back clean when you're done.

Daryl Dixon: Why?
Morgan Jones: Why? Because all life is precious, Daryl.
