The Fear the Walking Dead season 5 premiere “Here to Help” featured some great moments and some very memorable and quotable quotes.

The season premiere of Fear the Walking Dead introduced the audience to several new characters including siblings Annie, Max and Dylan and the mysterious Logan. Over the course of “Here to Help” there were quite a few memorable quotes that really serve to capture the essence of the episode.

Rough Landing

Annie: “Growlers are the least of our problems. You have no idea where you landed, do you?”

The group on the plane found themselves in some very hostile territory. It was the three kids – Annie, Max and Dylan – who helped them escape the walkers that were converging on the crash site. While the group was trying to offer help, Annie was the one who told them that they have no idea where they are or what dangers are out there.

Apocalyptic Catfishing

Annie: “You don’t know him?”

Morgan: “No, we talk to him on the radio”

You really can’t blame Annie and her siblings for thinking Morgan’s group was nuts. After all, they had a plane and they were using it to find someone they’d never met. And they crashed it, effectively stranding them in the middle of a hostile environment. Definitely not the best idea.

From the Mouths of Kids

Dylan: “Why would people need toys?”

Young Dylan has been through a lot in his short life. It’s no wonder that he couldn’t understand why Clayton would take time to include toys in his roadside care packages. The apocalypse is not a world where kids play with toys, and that’s why Luciana tells him that their missions are designed to bring hope back to this desolate world.

Something to Fear

Morgan: “You don’t have to be afraid.”

Annie: “That’s what people always say when there’s something to be afraid of.”

When he tells Annie that there’s no reason to be afraid he’s not considering that these siblings have been through. We don’t know what they have been through, but it’s easy to imagine that they have seen more than their fair share of awful things. Of course there are reasons to be afraid. This is the apocalypse.


Logan: “You’ve met the ‘C’. I’m the ‘L’. And unfortunately I don’t share his charitable nature.”

When Logan reveals his true identity it’s a shocker. At no point did anyone in the group seem to think that there was someone else who might lay claim to Clayton’s supplies. They have his journals, so it doesn’t look like he gave them a head’s up. Now that his presence has been made known, will the group put up a fight to get the supplies back or will they try to negotiate with him? It’s hard to say, because there’s no question that he has a legitimate claim to stuff that used to be his…right?


Strand: “I should have been on that plane today. I sure as hell am going to be on this one.”

Al made mention of the fact that she wasn’t supposed to be flying the plane and that she did her best under the circumstances, especially given that they lost an engine. Strand was supposed to be the pilot and he wasn’t there, which begs the question: Where was he? Now that the rescue mission is squarely upon his shoulders, will he be able to save the day? He’s facing an uphill battle, of course, because the first step is procuring another plane, and the only other plane out there belongs to Daniel Salazar.

True Love

June: “I didn’t think anyone could help me, not even you, until you made me believe it.”

When John starts to lose hope about the missions and ever being able to find people who want their help, June reminds her true love that they found each other and that’s why they have to keep going. The love between these two is undeniable.

Al, You Have No Idea…

Al: “There’s a story here.”

Tenacious Althea can’t stop thinking about the walker she found at the crash site. She decides against better judgement to return to the crash site at night and in the pouring down rain to investigate, and sure enough there is a story there. A big one. Unfortunately she wasn’t the only one there and another man in armor knocks her out. What will become of our intrepid explorer now?

Fear the Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9pm on AMC.
