[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.

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

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.

Selena: It's a long story.

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

[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?

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

[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.

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

[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?

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