Even dark zombie dramas spurn catch phrases, and The Walking Dead certainly has some unique ones evolve over the last four season. Wetpaint’s even written an article called The Walking Dead Glossary: All the “Stuff and Things” You Should Say. We’ve picked our favorite phrases below, but check out the full list HERE!
Full Shane — You never want to go Full Shane. It’s too far. When the zombie apocalypse pushes you to the psychopathic edge, you’ve gone Full Shane. Carl went Full Shane. Lizzie went Full Shane. Never go Full Shane.
Look at the Flowers — When Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino) started to lose it, Mika (Kyla Kenedy) told her to look at the flowers to calm down. It’s what Carol told Lizzie to do right before she shot the kid in Season 4, Episode 14. Now “look at the flowers” is a death threat. If someone pisses you off, tell them to look at the flowers. When you’re worried a character will die, you fear they may have to look at the flowers.
Ricktator — When Rick made his speech in the Season 2 finale about this no longer being a democracy, he was declared The Ricktator. Any time Rick gets into beast mode, he’s often referred to as Ricktator, as opposed to Farmer Rick. Some fans also give Carl his own version of this, called Carlmunism.
Stuff and Things — What Rick was busy doing when Lori wanted to talk. What you say you’re doing when someone you don’t want to talk to tries to drag you into their drama, or just a general term for random stuff. Pronounced “thangs” with a heavy Southern accent, no matter where you are from.
I say Stuff and Thangs all the time now. 😀
I hadn’t heard “Full Shane”. I like it!
Same. It’s pretty funny and creative! “You never want to go Full Shane” reminded me of that movie “Topic Thunder”. “Never go full retard”. lol
I like inshane better…
I miss Shane!
What do you think happened to Beth, Carol, Tyreese and Judith? I’ve heard that Beth was taken by Gareth, but I could be wrong.
I think Beth is with someone who had good intentions and was trying to help…not so sure she’ll even show up in Terminus, & I think Season 5 will open with Carol, Ty, & Judith reaching Terminus. I feel strongly that Carol wouldn’t just drop in like everybody else did, however, Ty would be the one that would walk on in there with his guard down. Judith is a hazard to blow their cover, so if they stake it out first, it won’t last long.
Coral – the only real way to say “Carl”
At least thats what Rick thaanks….er…..thinks….
This thread is claimed.
May..not the month.. its how Rick says me
A phrase I’m sorely missing: “Previously…on The Walking Dead…”
I agree. Actually a couple of my facebook status’s
It’s funny. when me and my mom were driving, she was a tad stressed, and i saw yellow floweres..I think you know where i’m going…saying that phrase cheered her up. Haha funny that a death scene can fix a mood…
That’s what makes this show such incredible and memorable!
I know its not christmas but….. stuff and thaangs are perfect to me…
Someone pulled this quote out on Andrew Lincoln in the last episode of Talking Dead…When Andy cringed at the sight of this quote on a poster some viewer made, my admiration for him skyrocketed to new heights.
Aww, why didnt you like that? I thought what that girl did was adorable. I have always been a fan of love actually, and that had to have been my favorite skype interview!
You forgot “Claimed!”
They probably didn’t forget it…probably got burned out real quick. No longer a favorite.
Actually, I read the original TWD Glossary that this article talks about and there it is. Classic.
Yeah, I said that because Lizzy didn’t include it in above’s post.
I’m doin’ stuff, Lori. Things.
excuse me??? THAANGS!
“This guy’s tail lights zig zagging all over the road, figured he had to be Asian driving like that.”
Hey, Lizzy Iverson! The correct pronunciation is THAANGS!
Did anyone else laugh when he said thaangs angain in the season finale? rewatch it,and you’ll find it!
Rick talks like me
A favorite around my house is to give someone the ” Dale Face”- this is usually saved for passing someone on the road who either can’t drive, drives to slow, or just pisses you off.
My friends and I use, “pulling an Otis”. When you “sacrifice” someone.
Got a drinking game called stuff n thangs. Anytime rick says stuff,and,or thangs
