You *do* want this. Last night you said you knew it was just a matter of time before everybody you loved was dead.
SHANE WALSH
What? You really said that? After all your big talk?
RICK GRIMES
I had to keep hope alive, didn't I?
DR. EDWIN JENNER
There is no hope. There never was.
RICK GRIMES
There's always hope. Maybe it won't you, maybe not be here. But somebody somewhere...
ANDREA
What part of "everything is gone" do you not understand?
DR. EDWIN JENNER
Listen to your friend. She gets it. This is what takes us down. This is our extinction event.
CAROL
This isn't right. You can't just keep us here.
DR. EDWIN JENNER
One tiny moment - a millisecond. No pain.
CAROL
My daughter doesn't deserve to die.
DR. EDWIN JENNER
Wouldn't it be kinder, to be more compassionate to just hold your loved ones and wait for the clock to run down?

H.I.T.s?
DR. EDWIN JENNER
[to computer] Vi, define.

H.I.T.s - high-impulse thermobaric fuel-air explosive consists of a two-stage aerosol ignition which produces a blast wave of significantly greater power and duration than any other known explosive except nuclear. The vacuum-pressure effect ignites the oxygen between 5,000 and 6,000 degrees and is used when the greatest loss of life and damage to structures is desired.
DR. EDWIN JENNER
It sets the air on fire. No pain. An end to sorrow, grief, regret. Everything.
