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: Carol's husband gave up on life and apparently committed suicide after the zombie apocalypse began:
Carol: Sophia's father was the breadwinner. I sold some Tupperware out of catalogues from time to time but it was really just to friends and neighbors. I wouldn't have considered it a job. My husband was a car salesman. They used to say he could talk anyone into anything... He talked me into marrying him... Talked me into staying with him after... ... He watched his parents die right after everything started to happen. He couldn't deal with it... He just sort of gave up on life... He... y'know. After he was... gone Sophia and I came here to stay with my sister... We figured it'd be worth the drive to stay with someone we know...
