Up Your Nose With a Fire Hose

Season 5, “Self Help”

Abraham’s quest to get Eugene to Washington D.C. so he can unleash that cure for zombiedom took some bad turns in this episode, including a crashed church bus and a broken down fire truck, both of which were transporting Abe and company. While working on the fire truck engine, the group met up with a horde of walkers, and a quick-thinking Eugene used the truck’s high-pressure hose to literally wash the walkers’ faces off their bodies. Abraham was in awe as the undead were knocked off their shambling feet by the water. “I been to eight county fairs and one goat rodeo,” he told his friends. “I never seen anything like that.”

'The Walking Dead' apocalypse quips: Abraham's best lines

To celebrate the Oct. 22 Season 8 premiere of The Walking Dead — the series’ 100th episode — Yahoo Entertainment will be posting a new TWD-related story every day through the season opener.

One of the things we needed most in Season 7 of The Walking Dead wasn’t just the fierce, fightin’ presence of Abraham Ford, but what we know would certainly have been some colorful commentary on the antics of Negan, Simon, and the rest of the Saviors. No other character in the show’s history could so pithily sum up what everyone was thinking like Abraham, and it’s impossible to imagine now that anyone but Michael Cudlitz could have so craftily, cheekily, and sincerely delivered those Abrahamisms. Here, a collection of our favorite verbal moments with the character we’ll miss until TWD end times.

The Walking Dead Season 8 premieres Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
