10"I'M NOT YOUR GOVERNOR."
In the early seasons of TWD, character development had a much more consequential presence than it does now. After Hershel's farm burned down, Rick made it clear that the other survivors had to maintain a "ride or die" attitude if they wanted to remain a part of his group. With his notable statement, "this
isn't a democracy anymore", Rick conveyed to his people that his opinion was the only one that mattered.
So, late in season 3, in the midst of the Governor's reign, it was a satisfying moment of significant development for Rick to stand up and deliver this line to the group:
"How you live, how you die, it isn't up to me. I'm not your Governor."
