Since it began, who have you killed? You wouldn't be alive now if you hadn't killed somebody.

[Just before shooting Jim] You killed all my boys.

The answer to infection. Well, as I said before, it's here- though it may not be quite what you imagined.

Eight days ago, I found Jones with his gun in his mouth. He said he was going to kill himself because there was no future. What could I say to him? We fight off the infected or we wait until they starve to death... and then what? What do nine men do except wait to die themselves? I moved us from the blockade, and I set the radio broadcasting, and I promised them women. Because women mean a future.

[About Private Mailer] The idea was to learn something about infection. Have him teach me. (Jim asks, "Has he?") In a way. He's telling me he'll never bake bread, plant crops, raise livestock. He's telling me he's futureless. And eventually, he'll tell me how long the infected take to starve to death.

Have you met our 'new age' sergeant? Our 'spiritual guru'? Tell me, Farrell, why exactly did you join the Army in the first place?

Flat terrain all around the house. Floodlights, which we've rigged up to a generator. High perimeter wall, which helps. And we've been lacing the ground with trip wires and land mines. You wouldn't want to mow the lawn, but if they get in, we hear them.

My parents and my sister, we went to Paddington Station, hoping we could get on a plane, maybe we could buy our way onto a plane. I remember my Dad had all this cash, even though cash was completely useless. About 20,000 other people had the same idea. The crowd was surging. I lost my grip on my sisters hand. I remember the ground was soft. I looked down and I was standing on all these people. Like a carpet. People had fallen and... Somewhere in the crowd there were infected. It spread fast. No one could run. All you could do was climb. Climb over more people. So I did that. I climbed. And I got on top of this kiosk. Looking down you couldn't tell which faces were infected and which weren't. Then I saw my Dad. Not my Mum or my sister. My Dad. His face...Selena's right. You should be grateful.

Ok, Jim. I've got some bad news.

Sgt. Farrell: When you look at the whole life of the planet, we — you know, man — has only been around for a few blinks of an eye. So if the infection wipes us all out... that is a return to normality.

Sgt. Farrell: Think... actually think about it. What would you do with a diseased little island? They've quarantined us! "There is no infection, just people killing people"... he's insane!

Sgt. Farrell: [Upon hearing the sound of a landmine detonating outside] STAND TO! STAND TO!

Soldier on Land Rover: Three survivors- one male, two female. I repeat, one male, two female. ETA, fifteen...put the kettle on.

Soldier at the Blockade 1: [Yelling, referring to Frank] Stay away from him!
