Private Jones: Mitch, I fucking got one!
Corporal Mitchell: What, you want a fucking sweetie? Keep shooting, you cunt!

Selena: It started as rioting. But right from the beginning you knew this was different. Because it was happening in small villages, market towns. And then it wasn't on the TV any more. It was in the street outside. It was coming in through your windows. It was a virus. An infection. You didn't need a doctor to tell you that. It was the blood. It was something in the blood. By the time they tried to evacuate the cities it was already too late. Army blockades were overrun. And that's when the exodus started. Before the TV and radio stopped broadcasting there were reports of infection in Paris and New York. We didn't hear anything more after that.

Jim: Oh, great valium. Not only will we be able to go to sleep, if we get attacked in the middle of the night, we won't even care.

Sergeant Farrell: Well, I think Bill's got a point. If you look at the whole life of the planet, we... You know, man, has only been around for a few blinks of an eye. So if the infection wipes us all out, that is a return to normality.

Selena: No, sweetheart. I'm making you not care. Okay?

Hello
More trivia for 28 Days Later

Question: Why do some people infected with the rage just die while others spread it and have to die out by starvation? For example, why did the main character's parents die lying peacefully in bed instead of while foraging for others to infect and eventually starving to death?

Answer: Jim's parents did not get infected with Rage. They decided to commit suicide, hence the pills and alcohol beside the bed. They basically decided that it was better to die than become infected, hence the message on the back of the picture. Those that are infected with Rage, the length of time it takes to die probably relates to how they were infected. If they were infected through the mouth or something similar then they would live for a while, if they were infected through a serious wound then obviously they would become infected but would not live as long because of the serious injury.
