The Walking Dead s04e01 Episode Script

30 Days Without an Accident

Previously on AMC's The Walking Dead - We drove them out.
- We should go after them.
We should finish it.
How you live, how you die it isn't up to me.
We vote.
He gunned that kid down.
I did what I had to do.
No, we're all infected.
If I was to kill you, you come back as one of these things.
Where is the Governor!? He fired on everyone.
Killed them all.
You're gonna join us.
As I travel Down life's pathways Knowing not what The years may hold As I ponder Hopes grow fonder Precious sacred Scenes unfold Precious Precious father Loving mother Fly across The lonely years You didn't wake me up.
'Cause I knew you were up all night reading comics with a flashlight.
What's up with Violet? Carl, I told you not to name them.
They're not piglets anymore.
They're food.
I just thought, you know, until Okay.
I don't know what's going on with her.
Could be sick, could be nothing.
Feel better, Violet.
Come on, let's get to it.
- Morning, Daryl.
- What's up, Dr.
S? - Morning, Daryl.
- Morning, Daryl.
Hey, Daryl! Smells good.
Just so you know, I liked you first.
Stop.
You know, Rick brought in a lot of them, too.
Not recently.
Give the stranger sanctuary, keeping people fed, you're gonna have to learn to live with the love.
- Right.
- I need you to see something.
Patrick, you want to take over? Yes, ma'am.
Mr.
Dixon, I just wanted to thank you for bringing that deer back yesterday.
It was a real treat, sir.
And I'd be honored to shake your hand.
About today, I don't know if we're gonna be able to spare a lot of people for the run.
That place is good to go.
We're gonna move on it.
Yeah.
The thing is, we had a pretty big buildup overnight.
Dozens more towards tower three.
It's getting as bad as last month.
They don't spread out anymore.
With more of us sitting here, we're drawing more of them out.
You get enough of those damn fence-clingers, they start to herd up.
Pushing against the fences again.
It's manageable, but unless we get ahead of it, not for long.
Sorry, Pookie.
You like that? I don't think you should go today.
Really? Yeah.
We have the suits.
Yeah, but you don't have to go.
You shouldn't.
You know everything's gonna work out, right? Right? Right.
Right.
But you're staying, okay? Fine.
Hey, beautiful.
Hey yourself.
- You need an apron.
- Yeah.
Listen, can we talk? I was thinking of going on the run today.
Okay.
I don't like killing them on the fence.
I hate it.
I mean, when they're coming at you out there, it's different.
You don't even think about it.
When they're stacked up against the chain-link, you're just face-to-face.
I I just wanted to do something different to help out.
You always volunteered to do it.
That's because you were always doing it.
Just thought I could get to know you.
You did.
You be careful out there.
Hey.
I was just gonna come find you.
- Hi.
- What's up? Well, the council pulled back everyone on the coal crew from going on the run.
They're shorthanded right now.
I figured I'd step up to help, go with 'em.
Just, you know, wanted to make sure that I saw you before.
Okay.
I just-- 'cause, you know, it's dangerous going out there.
I know.
Okay, are you gonna say good-bye? Nope.
It's like a damn romance novel.
Hey.
I'd like to start pulling my weight around here.
Bob, it's only been a week.
That's a week worth of meals, a roof over my head.
Let me earn my keep.
- You were out on your own when Daryl found you.
- That's right.
I just want to make sure you know how to play on a team.
We ain't gonna do it unless it's easy.
You know he was a medic in the Army.
You a hell of a tough sell.
You know that? Okay.
These leaves are gonna be in the shade, so we won't get any good fruit from it.
So we just pinch it off here.
Things break, but they can still grow.
These little bristles, they'll take root and we'll have a whole new plant.
Let's go.
We're glad to see you.
Glad to see you, too.
Somebody hit the jackpot.
No way.
Awesome! Thank you.
I get to read 'em when you're done.
And I found this.
Your face is losing the war.
You gonna stay a little while? Just a little while.
Well, look who's back.
Didn't find him.
Glad to see you in one piece.
I'm thinking of looking over near Macon.
It's worth a shot.
You might run into a few unneighborly types.
Is it? I'm gonna go check out the Big Spot.
The one I was talking about, just seeing.
Yeah, I got to go out and check the snares.
I don't want to lose whatever we catch to the walkers.
I'll go.
You just got here.
And I'll be back.
- Going to check the snares? - I am.
You're not.
Do your chores.
Read comics.
Maybe some books, too.
Hang out with Patrick.
Maybe go to story time.
Dad, that's for kids.
Yeah.
Now brush her down.
Nothing wrong with staying close, Rick.
Everyone understands.
You're growing us enough food so we won't need to do runs soon.
But we do have to find you a good pair of overalls.
You need to look the part.
A little piece of wheat out of the corner of your mouth.
Maybe a bigger ass.
Yeah.
Listen, the rest of the council-- Daryl, Glenn, Carol, Sasha, all of them-- they wanted me to talk to you.
When you go out there, you got to take your gun.
Easy now.
It's just outside the fence.
I have my knife.
I get in trouble, six bullets isn't gonna make the difference.
Rick, we want you to be safe.
Bring your gun.
Wait.
Please.
Please? Please help me.
I know you don't know me.
Okay, I know that.
But can you please help me get this to my husband? We haven't eaten in days.
Here.
Go ahead.
Thank you.
Do you have a camp around here? Yeah.
Could we possibly come back with you? We've been doing very badly on our own.
I'd have to meet him.
I need to ask him some questions, both of you.
What questions? Just three.
When we get there.
You have a gun on you? Can I make sure? Yeah.
Look, I don't know you, so I'm just gonna tell you this.
You try anything-- anything-- you're gonna be the one who loses.
I don't have anything else to lose.
No.
You do.
Go ahead.
Nick, look over here.
This one's Wayne.
- Nick.
- Nick, over here.
Hi, Nick! - Hi, Nick.
- You're naming them? Well, one of them has a name tag, so we thought all of them should.
They had names when they were alive.
They're dead now.
No, they're not.
They're just different.
What the hell are you talking about? Okay, they don't talk.
They don't think.
They eat people.
They kill people.
People kill people.
They still have names.
Have you seen what happens? Have you seen someone die like that? Yeah, I have.
They're not people and they're not pets.
Don't name them.
We're supposed to go read.
Come on.
You coming to story time tonight? Uh, yeah.
See you then.
I go sometimes.
I'm immature.
You wouldn't dig it.
It's for kids.
I'm gonna head up there, too.
I'll catch you later, young sir.
Yep.
Army came in and put these fences up.
Made it a place for the people to go.
Last week when we spotted this place, there was a bunch of walkers behind this chain-link keeping people out like a bunch of guard dogs.
So they all just left? Give a listen.
You drew 'em out.
Put a boom box out there three days ago.
Hooked it up to two car batteries.
All right, let's make a sweep.
Make sure it's safe.
Grab what you can.
We'll come back tomorrow with more people.
Come on.
Just give it a second.
Okay, I think I got it.
Got what? I've been trying to guess what Daryl did before the turn.
He's been trying to guess for, like, six weeks.
Yeah, I'm pacing myself.
One shot a day.
All right, shoot.
Well, the way you are at the prison, you being on the council, you're able to track, you're helping people, but you're still being kind of surly.
Big swing here.
Homicide cop.
What's so funny? Nothing.
It makes perfect sense.
Actually, the man's right.
Undercover.
- Come on, really? - Yep.
I don't like to talk about it 'cause it was a lot of heavy shit, you know? Dude, come on, really? Okay.
I'll just keep guessing, I guess.
- Yeah, you keep doing that.
- Mm-hmm.
- We're gonna do this, Detective? - Let's do it.
All right, we go in, stay in formation for the sweep.
After that, you all know what you're supposed to look for.
Any questions? Was there ever a time that you weren't the boss of me? You had a few years before I was born.
We were going to Puerto Vallarta for our honeymoon.
When they shut down the airports, our connecting flight never connected.
They wouldn't let us leave the terminal, so we slept next to these huge marble sculptures from Zimbabwe.
Then, on the fourth night, the things just came through.
There were a lot of us and now it's just Eddie and me.
And I wouldn't have made it if it wasn't for him.
And it isn't that he saved me over and over again or that he showed me the things that I had to do or to be willing to do.
If he wasn't still here I-- I couldn't be.
I just-- I couldn't.
What were they? What? The things you had to be willing to do? Um eating whatever we could find-- animal carcasses and rotten fruit-- and leaving people behind.
Hiding from people who needed my help.
Unlike you.
This is not charity.
You have to have numbers.
People are the best defense against walkers or people.
We help each other.
You call them "walkers"? You all right? You cut or something? No, man, but my foot is caught.
All right.
He's just caught.
Come on, help me up.
- What happened? - Everyone's all right.
We're over in wine and beer.
I was moving fast, man.
I drove right into the drinks.
Man, you lucked out.
If this thing had come down on you the wrong way Yeah, uh, we should probably go now.
Bob's still stuck.
Get him out of there.
We'll get the others.
Hey! I saw those sculptures at the airport once.
My favorite was the kids playing leapfrog.
Mine, too.
What Eddie and I had to do, did you do things like that? Did you? Do you think you get to come back from them? I hope so.
Yeah? I hope we answer your three questions to your satisfaction.
Hey! Hey! Daryl, go! Let's get Bob.
More, more.
Come on, time to go.
Let's go, now! Come on! Go! - Let's get out of here! - Ah! Zack! Go, go! Come on! It's just ahead.
Eddie.
Oh, thank God you're still here.
This is Rick.
He's gonna help us.
Everything's gonna be okay.
Everything-- Damn it! I wanted to take the boar.
I just knew-- I knew I'd get you here so much quicker.
He's starving.
He's slowing.
He needs something alive.
Please, I told you, I can't be without him.
And so I kept him.
It was wrong.
I can't do things like this.
And-- and you have to do things like this.
Let me be like him.
Don't stop it.
Don't end it after.
- No.
- Let me be with him.
No! Hey.
What were the questions? The three questions? How many walkers have you killed? Eddie-- Eddie killed-- killed them all.
Until How many people have you killed? Just me.
Just me.
Why? You don't-- you don't get to come back.
You don't get to come back from things.
You don't "The children fastened their eyes upon their bit of candle and watched it melt slowly and pitilessly away.
Saw the half inch of wick stand alone at last.
Saw the feeble flame rise and fall.
Climb the thin tower of smoke.
Linger at its top a moment and then" Ma'am, should I take watch now? Yes, Luke, you do that.
Today we are talking about knives-- how to use them, how to be safe with them, and how they could save your life.
Ma'am, may I be dismissed? - What is it? - I'm not feeling very well.
Sometimes you're gonna have to fight through it.
What if you wind up out there alone? You just give up because you're feeling bad? No, it's just I don't want to yack on somebody.
Go.
Okay, today we're gonna learn how to hold a knife, how to stab and slash and where to aim for.
Please, don't tell your father.
What? I don't like going out there, either.
Daryl's telling Beth.
There's nothing else to do.
I'll go see her.
I'm not pregnant.
- You know? - I know.
- Oh, thank God.
- Yeah.
Oh, my God.
I didn't want to, but we could have.
We can have lives here.
How can you say that after today? After Lori? Because I don't want to be afraid of being alive.
Being afraid is what's kept us alive.
No.
It's how we kept breathing.
Hey.
Hi.
What is it? Zack.
Is he dead? Okay.
What? I don't cry anymore, Daryl.
I'm just glad I got to know him, you know? Me, too.
Are you okay? Just tired of losing people is all.
I'm glad I didn't say good-bye.
I hate good-byes.
Me, too.
You tried to help her.
You couldn't.
No one could.
Some people are too far gone.
You're not.
You tried to help her.
How that woman wound up, I got close to that.
If I lost Carl and Judith, if I lost this place-- Not then, Rick.
Not even then.
You came back.
Your boy came back.
You get to come back.
You do.
