There's always a government! They're in a, a bunker, or a plane!


You wouldn't think it — needing rain so badly. Not in ****ing England.

It started off as rioting. But right from the beginning you knew this was different, because it was happening in small villages, market towns... and then it wasn't on TV anymore. It was on the street outside. It was coming through your windows. It was a virus, an infection. You didn't need a doctor to tell you that. It was the blood, or something in the blood. By the time they tried to evacuate the cities, it was already too late. The infection was everywhere. The army blockades were overrun, and that's when the exodus started. The day before the TV stopped broadcasting, there were reports of infection in Paris and New York. You didn't hear anything more after that.

[The group has been taken in by the soldiers responsible for the radio transmission.]
Major Henry West: So, you heard our broadcast.
Jim: Yeah, we did.
West: We must be a disappointment. You were hoping for a full brigade. An army base, with helicopters and a field hospital.
Jim: I was just, uh, hoping for —
West: "The answer to infection."
Jim: Yeah.
West: Well, as I said before, it's here... though it may not be quite what you imagined.
Jim: Just feel very lucky to have found you.
West: You were lucky. The fire drove hundreds of infected out of Manchester. The surrounding area is teeming with them. But don't worry- you're quite safe here.

[The soldiers defend the compound against an attack by the infected.]
Jones: Mitch! I ****ing got one!
Mitchell: What do you want, a ****in' sweetie? Keep shooting, you ****!

[Hannah, seeing Jim and Selena in a clinch, rushes in and breaks a bottle on Jim's head.]
Selena: Hannah! It's okay. He's not infected.
Hannah: But I thought he was biting you.
Jim: I was kissing her! Are you stoned?
Selena: It's a long story.

[Walk through the empty streets of London:] Hello?!

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

Plans are pointless. Staying alive is as good as it gets.

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

[Jim wants to go and look for his parents.]
Jim: Look, I have to find them. They live in Deptford. I can walk it, okay?
Selena: What, you'll go and come back, yeah?
Jim: Yes!
Selena: You won't! No one ever comes back.
Mark: So, lesson one: you never go anywhere alone unless you've got no choice. Lesson two: only travel during daylight unless you've got no choice. We'll take you tomorrow. We'll all go and find your dead parents together, okay?

[After fending off the soliders by kissing one of them, thus changing the balance of power] If you want us to get changed, you have to leave the room. Okay? It's just polite.

Secondary to protection, our real job is to rebuild. Start again.

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

[Everyone has trouble sleeping — except Selena, already fast asleep.]
Jim: [shaking Selena's shoulder] Hey, Selena!
Selena: [startles up, knife in hand] What? What is it?
Jim: How did you get to sleep?
