Coining That Famous Phrase
After an insane night where walkers overrun the prison the group is holed up at, Lori dies while giving birth, and her two children are left without their mother, Daryl is seen feeding the baby. It’s a bittersweet moment, but in Daryl Dixon fashion he turns it into a comical scene. The name that Daryl comes up with for the baby has been a fan favorite moment on the show for years.

Darly and Beth Literally Burn The House Down
That time with the Cherokee Rose
We could not deal with this Daryl moment. When Sophia was missing, he gifted Carol with a Cherokee Rose and told her:
(source: MTV) “It’s a Cherokee Rose. The story is that when American soldiers were moving Indians off their land on the Trail of Tears, the Cherokee mothers were grieving and crying so much ’cause they were losing their little ones along the way from exposure and disease and starvation. A lot of them just disappeared. So the elders, they said a prayer; asked for a sign to uplift the mothers’ spirits, give them strength and hope. The next day this rose started to grow where the mothers’ tears fell.
“I’m not fool enough to think there’s any flowers blooming for my brother. But I believe this one bloomed for your little girl.”
Any of the times Daryl brandished his crossbow
It was so many moons ago when we saw Daryl use his crossbow on a Walker for the first time, but he won our hearts immediately with an exasperated “Come on, people. What the hell?” before loosing a bolt into a stray Walker’s head after he caught it snacking on his felled dear. Bless. (source: MTV)
That Time Daryl Put Dale Out Of His Misery
When Rick couldn’t do the deed, Daryl stepped in to take care of business and put Dale out of his misery after he was ripped apart by a Walker. This was one of many moments which solidified Daryl’s place as Rick’s right-hand man, and our bringer of tears. (source: MTV)
