Dead Lines

Last night's episode (during which a practically-catatonic Rick goes on a zombie-killing spree) didn't boast the level of dramatic dialogue that The Walking Dead usually features, but "Say the Word" did contain some choice verbiage:

The Governor (to the Woodbury masses): Hey, the first time we gathered there was nine of us holed up in an apartment with Spam and Saltine crackers.  Well, look at us now. [chuckles]  We've built a place we can call home.  It may be held together with duct tape and string, but it works.  It's ours.  I'll take it.  So today, we celebrate how far we've come.  And we remember those we've lost.  We raise a us!

The Governor: We've all got our secrets, hmmph?
Michonne: Like Penny.
The Governor: You know about Penny?  Then you know I loved her.
Michonne: I bet you say that to all the girls.

Merle: How'd it go [with Michonne]?
The Governor: She's all personality, that one.

Hershel: He [T-Dog] got bit closing the gate.  If he hadn't done that...
Glenn: It could've been Maggie.  It's wrong, but I'd trade any number of people for one of ours any day.

Michonne: Are you coming or not?
Andrea: Don't do this.  Don't give me an ultimatum.  Not after everything.
Michonne: Are you coming or not?  [walks off when Andrea fails to answer]  You'd just slow me down, anyway.

The Governor: We're reducing these things, you know, controlling them.  We're shining a light on the monster under the bed.  It's fun.  It makes people feel better about the whole thing.
Andrea: It's a slippery slope.  You're teaching them that walkers aren't dangerous.
The Governor: We're teaching them not to be afraid.

Rick (answering an inexplicably ringing telephone at episode's end): Hello?
