BELOW: Jim wants to be be with his family again, even if it as a zombie: Jim has been bitten by zombies and can feel the sickness coming on which he knows will kill him and turn him into a zombie. He is distraught after having seen his entire family killed by zombies approximately months ago. After explaining to Carol what he wants done, Carol protests, saying that to leave him to die would be "murder."
Carol: No... We can't do that do you. You could start getting better. This would be murder.
Jim: Donna... You don't understand I can feel it coming. This-- You gotta do this. I-- *COUGH! COUGH! Please... They have to do this for me. T-talk them into it. It's the only way I'll ever be with my family again...
BELOW: Dying after begin bitten by zombies, Jim wants to "be together again" with his family, which was killed by zombies: Jim was bitten by zombies and feels the sickness which will turn him into a zombie overtaking his body. Jim has been absolutely distraught after seeing zombies kill his wife, children, sister, mom, nieces and nephews about two months ago. He now asks his friends to leave him near Atlanta, where his family was killed by zombies, in the hope that he himself will revive a zombie after dying and be able to be "together again" with his family. To this others, this seems like a questionable, somewhat desperate and probably tenuous plan, but Jim's desire to do this demonstrates how much he wants to be with his family.
Rick Grimes: Jim... Are you absolutely sure about this?
Jim: L--leave me. When I come back... maybe I'll find-- find my family... ... Maybe they c-- came back, too. Maybe we can be together again.
