Comic Book Excerpts:
vulgar language

Excerpts

BELOW: Donna asks Amy to not use bad language in front of the kids: Donna once again exhibits hints at her religious nature when she warns Amy to not use bad language in front of the kids. Amy uses the expression "damn right," which may seem mild by some standards, but based on her religious values, Donna finds even this unacceptable.

Donna asks Amy to not use bad language in front of the kids

Donna: Don't worry. Amy and Andrea are going to watch the kids.

Carol: Anything to get out of laundry duty.

Amy: You're damn right!

Donna: Not in front of the kids.

Amy: Oh, bite me!

BELOW: Donna makes strong feminist statements, which her friends Lori and Carol find unrealistic, saying this isn't about "women's rights": Donna is the most overtly religious character in the group of zombie apocalypse survivors that that Rick Grimes joins up with. In various instances she exhibits strong Christian beliefs. She also appears to hold strong feminist beliefs, as exhibited in a scene where she and two other women from camp head to the creek to do laundry. Note also in this scene that Donna's stand against vulgar and profane language seems to be inconsistent, as she uses both vulgar and profane language here, despite condemning it and avoiding it elsewhere.

Carol: I can't wait to see how these things smell with the new detergent Glenn got from the city!

Lori: That stuff Dale had in the RV just wasn't working. It made the clothes smell better... But not by much.

Donna: Jesus Christ, will you two listen to yourself?! You're excited about trying out a new detergent?! This is such bulsh--.

Lori: Damn, Donna. We're not throwing a party. I'm just looking forward to the possibility of clean smelling clothes. That's be a welcome change at this point.

Donna: I just don't understand why we're the ones doing laundry while they go off and hunt. When things get back to normal I wonder if we'll still be allowed to vote.

Lori: Are you serious? I don't know about you but I can't shoot a gun... I've never even tried. To be honest... I wouldn't trust any of those guys to wash my clothes. Rick couldn't do with with a washing machine... He'd be lost out here. This isn't about women's rights... It's about being realistic and doing what needs to be done.

Donna: Whatever.

Lori Grimes: [talking to Carol, using a vulgar expletive] Sh--. I hadn't thought of that.

Carl Grimes: Ah, Mom! You said a bad word. You owe me a quarter!

Sophia: [giggling] Tee hee!

Lori: Oh, Carl. Put it on my tab.

BELOW: When the fledgling superhero Eric Gitter ("Ink") is first introduced, his foul language, unprovoked attack on police, and theft of a woman's car all demonstrate his manifestly non-religious nature.
