From urbandictionary.com:

YouTube Poop is a name used for videos posted on YouTube which are usually nonsensical and random. They are simply just randomly chosen clips from things such as cartoons, clipped, looped and remixed to make it sound really strange.

The definition of YouTube Poop and the style is always being altered, and viewers of it have different reactions. To some, YTP is an art, and to others, it is worthless and pointless, with no reason to exist.

The most common videos used are those from the Super Mario Brothers show, The imfamous Zelda CG-I games, the Mario Hotel, Sonic the Hedgehog and the Volvic water commercial.

The first YouTube Poop, "I'D SAY HE'S HOT ON OUR TAIL" by SuperYoshi, was created in 2004, using clips from the "Super Mario Bros. 3" cartoon, and since then, YTP has evolved into a community of more than 200 poopers.

The Mushroom Land Central Library is a place that is briefly seen in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Do the Koopa".

In the very beginning of the episode, Princess Toadstool and Luigi were searching for a map to the Doom Dancer Music Box at the library. Luigi eventually found it rolled up on a shelf, and the two brought it to Toad's House. The library has never been seen since.

Let's Meet: Lani Yoshimura
Patch is profiling each individual recipient of the 2011 Spice of Life Awards.
By Michelle Fitzsimmons (Open Post) Updated February 15, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Lani Yoshimura, the 2011 Woman of the Year, works as the community librarian at the Gilroy Library. She's piloted literacy programs, sits on the board of the South County Collaborative and is watching her vision of a new library come to life downtown.

Patch wanted to know more about this Gilroy resident and her dedication to literacy and life-long learning.

Patch: How does it feel to be recognized as Woman of the Year? Was it an expected recognition?

Lani Yoshimura: I'm incredulous! Librarians seldom receive this type of public recognition. I am still speechless and flummoxed by the flurry of attention. It's wonderful to be paid to do something that you love and be rewarded with public thanks. What else can I say? It's a considerable honor.

Patch: What made you decide to become a librarian?

Yoshimura: Like many of us that grew up in the 60s, we believed in social change. At the time that I went to UC Santa Cruz, the Students for a Democratic Society and other radical groups were all active.

However, most of us in the class of 1969 were inspired by our college professors who told us to "go out and make a difference" not by overthrowing the government, but by working at ordinary jobs at the grassroots level. Some of my classmates went into the Peace Corps. Others became postal workers or bakers. I considered teaching but librarianship seemed the best vehicle for me.

I come from a family dedicated to service. My father, maternal grandfather and some of my aunts and uncles all believed strongly that you always give back to the community and leave things better than you found them. Libraries particularly attracted me because my father prized the freedom of speech above all. Libraries are embodiments of the First Amendment. Libraries change lives.

Patch: You've had an interesting journey to get to the Gilroy Library. Can you tell me about that?

Yoshimura: My real interest is in working with communities. My family lived right next to a farm labor camp and one summer, I asked my father to help me get a job picking crops from dawn to mid-afternoon so I could experience the migrant community and practice Spanish.

I worked in the library in the evenings. I eventually started to work in the San Jose Public Library where I learned about working with communities. I ran the tiny Alviso Library in a diverse neighborhood of boat-builders and Spanish-speakers. At the San Jose Public Library, I oversaw the community information desk where I learned to find answers for people not in books, but in the community. I was hooked.

Patch: What drew you to Gilroy?

Yoshimura: I was born and raised in Colusa, a farming community of 3,500 in Northern California. Gilroy reminded me very much of my small hometown although Colusa's population never expanded. I love the challenge of Gilroy—its diversity, its capacity for change and growth.

Patch: You were involved in the creation of La Isla Pacifica, a shelter for battered women and children, correct? What's the story behind that?

Yoshimura: In the late 1970s, there was an agency called OWL that was the precursor to South County Alternatives and then Community Solutions. One of the women who worked at OWL was Judy Gelwicks. She called me and a couple of other professional women working in local agencies and asked if we'd like to meet for lunch once a month to network. More women began to join the group, and we decided to take on a project.

We first called ourselves Council On Women's Services, but later changed the name to Women's Services Council when we discovered that the first name had the acronym of COWS! The group developed and implemented what was to become La Isla Pacifica.

Patch: Looking forward, what are some issues or projects that you are focused on and excited about?

Yoshimura: The first project is getting the new library established. Since it is a green building, we will be consumed with learning how to run the building. There are many programs to establish and to expand. Because the new library finally will have space, we will be able to sponsor more programs, partnerships and enhance services.

The Miracle on West Sixth Street
Lani Yoshimura, Gilroy Library
California Library Association 2012

I'm here to tell the story of how, against all odds, a group of average citizens performed a miracle. That miracle is the two-story, 55,000 sq. ft.library on West Sixth Street in Gilroy California.

The rural community of Gilroy is located 35 miles south of San Jose and is better-known as the garlic capital of the world. Its population which was 7500 in the early 1970s is expected to reach 70,000 by 2020. Gilroy's unemployment rate looms at 15%. Nearly 60% of its residents are Hispanic.

The Gilroy Library is a member of the Santa Clara County Library District. The partnership between each city & the District is a simple one -- The City builds & owns the library and the District operates it.

The journey the community took to build a new library was a long and winding one. We first started to consider a new facility in the late 1980s followed by years of determining community needs and gathering input through focus groups, surveys and discussions in the local media.

From 2001-2006, the City, the Library and the local school district made 3 unsuccessful bids for State Library Bond Act funds (Prop. 14).

When all hope seemed to be lost of constructing a new library, along came the 2008 Presidential election.

The old librarywas built in 1975. It was antiquated, inadequate,and seismically unsafe. As the economic crisis deepened across the nation, we wondered if we should even ask a struggling community, especially one with a history of failing to support public safety and school bond measures, to fund such a large capital project.

A local citizen's group had been strategizing how to convince the City Council to place a library measure on the 2008 ballot. In 1995 and 2005, this group of library supporters had successfully passed funding measures for library operations and collections. This experienced team believed that the higher voter turnouts during a Presidential election might be the key to success. They were confident that they could win!

The group decided to re-organize and chose to recruit new leaders, Jay and Vicki Baksa. Baksa had retired after serving as Gilroy city manager for more than 25 years. He claimed to know nothing about political campaigns, but he could run meetings, make tough decisions and he and Vicki were well-connected. With the Baksas to spearhead and refocus the project, the group gave itself a new name: Library4Gilroy (L4G).

Predictions about the possible outcome of the election were inconclusive, a 50-50 chance of success, the polling consultants indicated. Still Baksa and the Committee convinced the City Council at the 11th hour, a few days before the final filing date, to put the $37 million general obligation bond on the 2008 ballot.

Then with barely 3 months left until the November election, and less than $500 in the bank, the Committee had a daunting task ahead of them.

L4G eventually raised $35,000 to cover campaign costs for consultant fees, printing and postage, ads and lawn signs, and website development. The group hired a political consultant with a track record for success, and to stay within their shoestring budget, committee members divided the workload amongst themselves.

The campaign was low-key and community-based. L4G collaborated with labor unions, local clubs and college students, and shared costs whenever possible with the local school district campaign.

They also formed an alliance with a grassroots group called La Voz de la Gente which was educating new Hispanic voters about the election process. Voz did not tell these prospective voters how to vote, but gave them information on the issues and candidates and walked them through the voting process and called voters with deadline reminders.

Our consultant recommended that we remain focused on certain demographics which did not include the large Hispanic community. But we also listened to what we felt was right. We decided to work with Voz de la Gente, and eventually this effort solidified our win.

Voz's target group was 650 Hispanic voters. Coincidentally, it was about this same number of votes which made up the difference between 67% and 69% majority that was achieved.

Local businesses such as banks and real estate firms donated office space for a campaign headquarters and for telephone banking.

Social science and history students who needed to earn community college service credits worked with the campaign under the supervision of a prominent retired labor organizer.

The library message was carried to every local venue including club meetings, social gatherings and the local media. Tabling was done in front of the library, grocery stores, churches and at community events. Targeted voters and households in selected precincts were visited by volunteers.

For every positive contact that was made, supporter information was mined so volunteers could be recruited, endorsements secured and pledges collected. This information was recorded immediately into campaign databases then reviewed and analyzed by the campaign consultant.

A significant presence was provided by the dynamic and content-rich L4G website. It was attractive, interactive and updated almost immediately. Donors could make online contributions via PayPal. Posters could be printed off the website. A variety of relevant articles and interviews were featured. Key endorsements were listed daily. Unfortunately, the website crashed a day after the election was over so I have no examples of its features.

Timing was everything. Because of the volume of mail-in ballots expected and the limited budget, mailers were disseminated at carefully paced intervals. As we got down to the wire, the campaign focused on those who we identified who said YES and ignored those who were uncertain or said NO.

On Election Day, volunteers telephoned voters up until 10 minutes to poll closing time. It mattered, every vote counted.

Measure F passed with 69.04%!

The beautiful new Gilroy Library opened its doors on April 30, 2012.

The two-story, 55,000 sq. ft. facility
- Designed by Harley, Ellis Devereaux Architects

My First Memory (of Librarians)
by Nikki Giovanni

This is my first memory:
A big room with heavy wooden tables that sat on a creaky wood floor
A line of green shades - bankers' lights - down the center
Heavy oak chairs that were too low or maybe I was simply too short
For me to sit in and read
So my first book was always big

In the foyer up four steps a semi-circle desk presided
To the left side the card catalogue
On the right newspapers draped over what looked like a quilt rack
Magazines face out from the wall

The welcoming smile of my librarian
The anticipation in my heart
All those books - another world - just waiting
At my fingertips.

From wikipedia.org:

Cooley High is a 1975 American film based upon the real high school located on the near north side of Chicago, produced and released by American International Pictures and written by Eric Monte (co-creator of Good Times). The film, set in 1964 Chicago, Illinois, stars Glynn Turman and Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, and features a soundtrack made up primarily of 1960s Motown hits.

The film is considered a classic of black cinema, and its soundtrack featured a new Motown recording, G.C. Cameron's hit single "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday". That song was covered in 1991 by Motown act Boyz II Men on the group's first LP, named Cooleyhighharmony in honor of this film.

Plot
The story explores the adventures and relationships of Leroy "Preach" Jackson (Turman) and Richard "Cochise" Morris (Hilton-Jacobs), two black high school students at Edwin G. Cooley Vocational High School, in Chicago, during the 1960s whose carefree lives take a turn for the worse through several twists of fate, including violent carjacking friends, drugs, failing grades, and girls.

Preach and Cochise decide to cut class and go to the zoo, despite the fact that Preach has missed an entire week of school, much to the chagrin of his history teacher, Mr. Mason (Garrett Morris). Nevertheless, they gather their classmates, Pooter and Tyrone, and play hookey. On their way back, Pooter is hit with gorilla feces, Cochise teaches some young new "turkeys" how to shoot a basketball, and they meet their friend Dorothy at a diner called Martha's, where she invites them to a quarter party, while Preach slips inside to gamble with associates Stone and Robert. Cochise, knowing that Martha will throw him out for gambling, warns him, just as Brenda (Cynthia Davis) tries to get past them to get to the washroom. After she leaves to get Martha, Leroy makes a dollar bet with Richard that he will sleep with Brenda before they break up. Martha then comes with a large butcher knife, threatening Jackson and throwing him out of her shop.

At Dorothy's quarter party, Tyrone flirts with Dorothy to grant the guys access to the quarter party without paying her. At the party, Pooter tries to flirt with some other girls, but they all flock to Richard instead, leaving him alone. Leroy finds and tries to serenade Brenda with poetry. Outside, Cochise flirts with and kisses a girl during a slow dance in the dark. However, hotheaded Damon, a classmate, sees him kissing the girl, who turns out to be Loretta Brown, Damon's girlfriend.

Later, Preach, Pooter, Tyrone, and Morris are singing and drinking wine on a street corner.

Stone and Robert pull up in a Cadillac, and Preach and Cochise go along with them for a ride as they are eager to smoke with them. Preach claims to have excellent driving experience, and the others allow him to take the wheel. At an intersection, the group gets scared next to a police car, and they pull away, causing the squad car to give chase. The chase ends when they evade the police in a mostly empty warehouse, and then gently crash into the back of another vehicle. Everyone runs away from the car.

At school the next day, before their important history test, Preach and Cochise are taken out of Mr. Mason's class on a warrant for their arrest relating to grand theft auto.

Mr. Mason talks to the police, convincing them to go easier on his students, while Stone and Robert who have worse criminal records are not spared. When they eventually get out of jail, they seek vengeance on Preach and Cochise, perceiving them to be snitches.

When Stone and Robert get released, they go searching for Preach and Cochise and end up beating Cochise to death. Preach visits his grave after the ceremony once everyone has left and pours some wine on his grave and reads one of his poems out loud. After that Preach says good-bye and heads off to Hollywood and becomes a screenwriter.

At the end of the film, still images are shown of the characters with text describing how their lives wound up in adulthood:

* PREACH - Went to Hollywood and did become a successful screenwriter.

* STONE & ROBERT - Both killed in during a gas station hold up.

* BRENDA - A librarian, married, with three children, residing in Atlanta, Georgia.

* DAMON - A sergeant, U.S. Army stationed in Europe.

* POOTER - A factory worker in Muncie, Indiana.

* TYRONE - Killed during an outbreak of racial violence at the Democratic Convention in Chicago.

From wikia.com:

Carol Peletier is one of the main protagonists and survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. During the initial outbreak, Carol evacuated with her abusive husband, Ed Peletier, and her daughter, Sophia Peletier, to Atlanta. They eventually joined a camp of survivors. Following the deaths of her husband and daughter, Carol formed a close bond with fellow survivor Daryl Dixon.

Overview
Carol is a kind-hearted and soft-spoken woman, though often meek and defenseless (especially when it comes to facing her husband Ed Peletier). She has always remained extremely protective over her daughter Sophia, attempting to shield her from the various dangers of their surroundings. After Ed is beaten half to death, and becoming even stronger following his actual death, she begins to develop thicker skin and draws a new found boldness inside of her. Carol continues this development throughout the second season, standing up for herself much more and deepening her connections within the group.

She is shown to be a devout Christian, having constantly prayed for the well-being of herself and Sophia. She fervently holds onto her beliefs even after Sophia's death, insisting that her daughter is in heaven.

As opposed to her Comic Series counterpart, Carol in the TV series becomes stronger and more independent as the first season moves along. The inclusion of Ed as her husband, according to Robert Kirkman in The Walking Dead Chronicles, was to give her a solid foil to produce the strength needed to survive that the comic counterpart didn't have.

Pre-Apocalypse
Before the outbreak, Carol lived down South where she eventually met a man named Ed Peletier. He was initially charming enough for her to date and eventually marry. However, his true nature would be revealed the longer they stayed together. She was a housewife, and fiercely looked after their daughter, Sophia, nurturing and providing her with comfort while Ed greatly neglected her (much to Carol's disgust).

Throughout their marriage, she was a victim of verbal and physical domestic abuse. Because of her shattered independence, she remained hesitant to inform any outsiders of the situation.

During the outbreak, she, Sophia, and Ed traveled toward Atlanta which was supposedly a safe-zone. They would later meet Shane, Lori, and Carl while on the road and eventually form a campsite outside the outskirts of Atlanta with other survivors sometime after the city was destroyed by the military.

Post-Apocalypse
In the first season, Carol was portrayed as weak and victimized by her abusive husband. In the episode "Tell It to the Frogs", when the survivors are resting around dimly-lit campfires, Ed attempts to make his fire bigger, stating that it's cold. Shane asks him to put it out, stating that the light and smoke may attract any walkers lurking around. Ed finally gives in and orders Carol to dim the fire to embers. The next morning, Carol is cleaning Rick Grimes' clothes for him, stating that it's the best she can do, especially without a real washing machine, and Rick thanks her. Later, Carol is doing laundry at the quarry with Andrea, Amy, and Jacqui, joking around about what they miss. When Andrea says she misses her vibrator, Carol looks at her husband then back at the women and whispers "me too", prompting laughter to explode from the women. The laughter draws Ed over, who orders them to stop and do the laundry. Andrea, fed up by Ed's attitude, says that if Ed doesn't like the way laundry's done, he can do it, tossing his clothes at him. Ed throws it back at Andrea roughly, starting up an argument. Ed demands for Carol to come with him. Jacqui then makes a remark to Ed, proving that she and everyone else know Ed abuses her in private. Carol is then submissive to Ed, but Andrea tells Carol she doesn't have to go. Carol then begins to resist, to which Ed responds with a slap to her face, drawing blood from her lip. Andrea and Jacqui, both upset, push Ed away, as Amy holds Carol in her arms. Shane, who was observing the situation from a distance, is enraged with what he has just witnessed. He approaches Ed and beats him senseless, threatening him to not ever lay a violent hand on his wife or daughter or he'll beat him to death. Carol is upset from the beating and tends to her husband, weeping and apologizing.

As the series progressed (and with both her husband and daughter being turned), Carol's demeanor hardened to the point where her weakness and timidity was completely subsumed into a "survive at any cost" mentality. This has been especially apparent in Season Four:

In the episode "30 Days Without an Accident", Carol (along with the other survivors and former Woodbury residents) have built-up the prison so that it's more fortified. She is seen talking to Daryl about the prison and the crescent raise in the number of walkers near the fences, comparing the situation to a month ago. Later on, Carol is shown in the library, reading stories to the children, however she is using 'storytime' reading as a cover to teach the children how to use knives, so they will have a better understanding of how to survive in the apocalypse. When Carl enters the library and notices this, she ask him not to inform his father.

In the episode "Infected", Carol is seen helping Karen in putting the children inside the cells after a zombified Patrick attacks the cell block. After Ryan Samuels is bitten, she is seen carrying him in one of the cells.She tries to cut his arm, only to discover he is also bitten at the back of his neck. Later she brings in his two daughters. After Mika and Lizzie say their goodbyes to him, she pulls out her knife and walks to Ryan, before she can end his suffering, Lizzie volunteers to do it herself. She ends Ryan's suffering after Lizzie suffers a emotional breakdown. Later she is seen telling Lizzie that if she wants to live, she has to be strong. After Lizzie walks away, Mika tells Carol that Lizzie is just messed up and that she is not weak. Later after a brief talk with Lizzie, Carol cuts a flower and puts it at the side on her ear. They both share a smile and Lizzie holds her hand.

In the episode "Isolation", Carol is first seen with Rick, Tyreese, and Daryl, examining the bodies of Karen and David. When Rick and Tyreese get into a fist fight, Carol tries to break them up. Carol is later seen talking to the group about isolating the Infected in Cell Block A. Later, she is holding the door for the infected walking in. As she closes it, Lizzie walks in and tells Carol she isn't feeling well. Lizzie begins to cry, and Carol comforts her, and assures her that she'll be fine. Lizzie asks Carol if she could tuck her in. Carol, not wanting to stay exposed to the virus, tells her that Glenn can tuck her in, saying he is the "best" at tucking kids in. Much later in the episode, Tyreese visits to Carol at the kitchen area and asks her to watch over Sasha since she has a natural mother instinct. Carol apologizes about Karen. After Tyreese leaves, she begins to cry and dumps some of the water. Afterwards she heads to the fences to pump water, knowing many walkers are nearby. She is close to being bit, but Rick comes to her aid. At the end of the episode, Rick confronts Carol and asks her how much she cares for everyone and how much she'd give. His final question to her is "Carol, did you kill Karen and David?" After a long pause, Carol responds "Yes" and walks away.

In the episode "Indifference", Carol goes with Rick on a medical supply hunt for Hershel after the others do not return. They meet a couple named Ana and Sam and they ask Rick if they can go with them to the prison. Carol speaks in favor of them. After splitting up, they are in a house and Carol explains to Rick she did what she did because she believed everyone else would have gotten sick and died. Outside while finding food, Rick asks Carol why she never talks about Sophia, and Carol explains that she is dead. Later on while heading to the safehouse, they find Ana's dead body. They wait for Sam to return but he never does, and they assume he either is dead or he left. They head to the car and Rick makes a decision to banish Carol from the group. He gives her gas, food and other supplies, and they say their goodbyes. Carol gives Rick a watch that Ed gave her on their first anniversary, and then she leaves.

Season 4, Episode 1: 30 Days Without an Accident

Rick hoes a garden in the prison yard. He finds a pistol in the dirt, empties its magazine and tosses both into a wheelbarrow.

Nearby, a walker claws at the fence, its eyes, ears and mouth dripping with blood.

Carl joins Rick and asks what's wrong with their pig, Violet, who's lying motionless in the sty. Rick has no explanation and insists Carl refrain from naming the pigs. "They're food," he says.

In an outdoor picnic area, Carol jokes with Daryl about his popularity with all the people he's helped bring to the prison. Patrick, one of the young newcomers, asks to shake Daryl's hand.

Just across the field, a group of survivors stabs at walkers that are clawing at the perimeter fence. Carol tells Daryl there was a buildup of walkers overnight, and that it's getting worse: "They don't spread out any more," she says.

Meanwhile, Maggie nuzzles Glenn in bed. Fearing that she may be pregnant, Glenn urges her to sit out the supply run to the Big Spot! department store that day.

At the perimeter fence, Tyreese tells Karen - formerly of Woodbury - that he doesn't like killing walkers at the fence, and is therefore joining the supply run. She urges him to be careful and they kiss.

Zach, a young newcomer, helps Daryl load a truck and tells Beth that he's going on the run as well. Beth kisses him, but refuses to say good-bye.

Another newcomer, Bob, asks Sasha if he can join them on the run. She says no, on the basis that he's only been at the prison for a week. Glenn points out that Bob's Army medic training could come in handy. "You're a hell of a tough sell," Bob tells a skeptical Sasha, who eventually agrees to let him join.

Michonne returns from a search for the Governor and reports zero luck. She says she'll expand her search to Macon County.

Rick orders Carl to stay behind while he checks snares outside the fences for prey. Hershel tells Rick that the Council - himself, Daryl, Glenn, Carol and Sasha - wants Rick to bring a gun when he goes out. "I have my knife," Rick argues, although he eventually relents.

In the forest, Rick finds a woman foraging for food and offers her his own. She asks if she and her husband can join his group. Rick says he first has to meet her husband and then ask them three questions.

Back at the prison, Carl and Patrick find a group of children giving names to walkers at the fence. Carl reprimands them: "They're not people, and they're not pets," he says. "Don't name them." One of the children asks Patrick if he's going to join them in the prison library for "Story Time" with Carol later on. He agrees, then tells Carl that he wouldn't enjoy it because it's "kid's stuff."

At the Big Spot!, Daryl knocks on a window to flush out walkers. The group methodically kills the strays, then marches inside. But unbeknownst to them, scores of walkers mill around a downed helicopter on the building's rooftop.

En route to her camp, the woman, Clara, tells Rick she never would have survived if it weren't for her husband. "He showed me the things that I had to do, or be willing to do," she says. "If he wasn't still here, I couldn't be."

At the store, the team fills their carts with supplies. Glenn finds a billboard advertising baby photos, and grabs an instant camera.

Bob takes a wine bottle off a shelf and gazes at it longingly. With newfound resolve, he slams the bottle back on the shelf, causing the entire unit to collapse.

The walkers on the roof react to the sudden noise. The unstable roof starts to give way under their shuffling feet, and walkers begin crashing down into the store.

In the forest, Clara expresses hope that she and her husband will be able to answer Rick's questions satisfactorily.

Back at the store, walkers continue to fall through the ceiling and attack the team. A walker bites Zach and ravages him. The team evacuates just as the roof collapses, bringing the helicopter down along with it.

Meanwhile, Rick and Clara arrive at Clara's camp, where she immediately rushes to a nearby pile of supplies. "This is Rick," she says to the pile, "and he's going to help us." Rick looks on, puzzled.

Clara suddenly charges at Rick with her knife. He throws her to the ground. "He's starving!" she screams. "He's slowing. He needs something alive." Rick looks at a nearby burlap sack, which contains the remains of Clara's husband, now reanimated as a walker.

Then Clara turns the knife on herself. "I can't be without him," she says, stabbing herself in the stomach.

Dying, Clara asks Rick what his three questions were. Rick solemnly asks: "How many walkers have you killed?" Then "How many people have you killed?"

"Just me," Clara answers.

"Why?" Rick asks.

"You don't get to come back from the things you've done," she answers.

Meanwhile, Carl enters the library as Carol kicks off story time. After the parents of the children leave, she furtively opens a trunk full of knives and shows the kids how to use them for protection. Patrick, feeling unwell, asks to be dismissed. Carol sees Carl and asks him not to tell Rick about her lessons.

Out in the prison yard, Rick returns from his encounter with Clara and finds Violet the pig lying dead in a corner of her pen.

Tyreese, back from the run, joins Karen in her cell. "I don't like going out there, either," he tells her.

Glenn reports to Maggie about Zach's death. She tells Glenn that she's not pregnant. "Thank God," he says. She argues they could have raised a child. "I don't want to be afraid of being alive," she says.

Beth reacts matter-of-factly to news of Zach's death. "I don't cry anymore," she tells Daryl. "I'm just glad I got to know him."

As Rick cradles Judith, he confides in Hershel his fears of becoming as mad as Clara. Hershel reassures him that he was nowhere close to that. Besides, Hershel reminds him, "You came back."

That night, Patrick staggers to the bathroom, coughing feverishly. He drops dead in the shower, blood streaming from his eyes, ears and mouth. Moments later, his eyes open: He's turned.

[scene opens with a picture of a strawberry with googly eyes and the mouth of a human being super-imposed over it, as she starts talking in a high-pitched voice]
STRAWBERRY: Hi! I'm Strawberry, and I'm here to tell you how to search the library catalog. Now, I'm feeling a little bit concerned that you're not gonna take me seriously, because ... well, because I'm a strawberry, and you're probably not used to taking advice from a strawberry!
[she pauses]
STRAWBERRY: But, I'm really good at what I do! I-I really am, and I hope that you believe me ... Please, please believe me!
