I love The Walking Dead, but it’s a show not usually known for its writing. Awesome zombie make-up and thrilling action scenes? Sure, but writing has only just started to be one of the show’s strong suits recently. The show is getting better and better as time goes on, but over the years it has produced a few memorable funny quotes that are worth remembering. Almost all of them by Daryl. No, they’re not Anchorman-level catch-phrases or anything (other than Rick’s CORRAAL!!), but they’re good all the same.
I hunted through all 5.2 seasons of the show to date to find the most funny quotes in the series so far from none other than Daryl Dixon. Here are some that I really liked, though feel free to suggest your own if you think I missed any.
Daryl Dixon: Hey kid, what’d you do before all this?
Glenn: Deliver pizzas. Why?
Daryl Dixon: You got some b***s for a Chinaman.
Glenn: I’m Korean.
Daryl Dixon: Whatever.
Daryl [to Glenn]: Keep drinking, little man. I wanna see how red your face can get.
Jimmy: I want a gun.
Daryl: And people in hell want slurpees.

Merle Dixon: I can’t go with you, I… I tried to kill that chick. Nearly killed that Chinese kid.
Daryl Dixon: He’s Korean.
Merle Dixon: Whatever. Doesn’t matter man I just can’t go with you.
Rick Grimes: Where’d you find everyone?
Daryl Dixon: Well, those guys’ tail lights zigzagging all over the road – figured he had to be Asian, driving like that.
Glenn Rhee: [chuckles] Good one.
Daryl Dixon: She got a name yet?
Carl Grimes: Not yet. I was thinking, maybe Sophia? Then there’s Carol too. Andrea, Amy. Jacqui, Patricia. Or… Lori, I don’t know.
Daryl Dixon: Little A** Kicker.
