Dead Lines

Last night's episode, "Walk With Me," featured the return of Merle, the inaugural appearance of the Governor, and a slew of dirty looks from Michonne.  Culling some of the killer dialogue:

Merle: Oh holy shit.  Blondie.  Damn, you look...good. [stabs walker with his bayonet hand]  Now hows about a big hug for your ol' pal Merle?

Andrea: What do you want from us?
Merle: There she sits.  Four walls around her, roof over her head, medicine in her veins.  And she wants to know what I want from her.  I plucked you and your mute here out of the dirt, Blondie.  Saved your asses.  How about a thank you?
Michonne: You ha d a gun on us.
Merle: Ewww, she speaks.  Well, who ain't had a gun on 'em in the past year? [raises his prosthetic] Show of hands?

Andrea: "Governor."  They call you that?
The Governor: Some nicknames stick whether you want them to or not.
Andrea: "Buzz" is a nickname.  "Governor" is a title.  There's a difference.

The Governor: Did you finish your homework?
Milton: [gesturing towards Merle] Unfortunately, the dog's eating it already.

The Governor: We're going out there and taking back what's ours.  Civilization.  We will rise again.  Only this time, we won't be eating each other.

Andrea: Those walkers were with us all winter long.  Protecting us. took them out without any hesitation.  That had to be--
Michonne: [chin quivering]  Easier than you think.

Andrea: So what's your real name?  If that's not asking too much.
The Governor: I never tell.
Andrea: Never say never.
The Governor: [beat] Never.
