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.

Hannah: Are you trying to kill me?
Selena: No, sweetheart. I'm making you not care. Okay?

Jim: And then I wake up today in hospital. I wake up, and I'm... I'm hallucinating or I'm...
Mark: What's your name?
Jim: Jim.
Mark: I'm Mark. This is Selena. Ok, Jim. I've got some bad news.

Jim: That was longer than a heartbeat.

Selena: Plans are pointless. Staying alive is as good as it gets.

Continuity mistake: When Jim and the other two characters are making their way to Jim's parents house, they are seen on the Docklands Light Railway track going towards a place called Island Gardens. The next shot shows them at a station called East India which is completely the other direction to where they were going down the track. Obviously, only users of the railway would pick up on such error though.

Question: I didn't understand the rationale of Jim releasing the infected soldier Mailer into the mansion, since he knew the women were still inside, unprepared and unarmed. Anyone got a good reason why he did it?

Answer: He also knew that the women were in an interior room, upstairs, with the door(s) closed; and that Mailer was much more likely to encounter/eliminate the other soldiers who were downstairs and mobile first. He was probably gambling - correctly, as it turned out - that he'd be able to make it upstairs and either rescue the women or eliminate Mailer before they were harmed.
