I hadn’t considered I should be worried.” Jessica: “Forgot to turn on those feelings?” Martin: “So is this what it is like, worrying about your kids, thinking of all of the terrible things that could be happening.

2. Negan: “The thing is, when she was gone, I just…I didn’t feel much of anything anymore. You know? I didn’t feel scared, I didn’t feel happy. I, uh, I didn’t feel anything. I was just, here. And that is my strength. Now me, I am dead to this world. But you? See, you are pretending. You think that it makes you strong to say that emotions aren’t real, that we are animals.
