When we were fighting the Saviors, you told me that soon you’d be the one following me. But you didn’t. ‘Cause I wasn’t someone to follow. That changes now.[to Rick]
It’s easy for you, isn’t it? Being reckless with somebody else’s life. But you don’t get to decide who lives and who dies anymore.[to Negan]
We’re down here because up top is death. We’re moving fast because our kids are starving. And I’m calling the shots because that’s how everyone voted. As for me killing you… It’s always on my mind.[to Negan]
The decision was made a long time ago. Before any of us knew each other. When we were all strangers who would just pass each other on the street before the world ended. And now we mean everything to each other. You were in trouble, you were trapped. Glenn didn’t know you, but he helped you. He put himself in danger for you. And that started it all. From Atlanta, to my daddy’s farm, to the prison, to here, to this moment now. Not as strangers, as family. Because Glenn chose to be there for you that day a long time ago. That was the decision that changed everything. It started with the both of you and it just grew, all of us. To sacrifice for each other, to suffer and stand, to grieve, to give, to love, to live, to fight for each other. Glenn made the decision, Rick. I was just following his lead.
