Stuff and Things
"Stuff and Things" is a memorable quote from the Season 3 episodes "Seed", "Home" and "I Ain't a Judas." In these episodes, the protagonist Rick would encounter a question and often respond by saying, "Stuff…Things." The eventual spread of Stuff and Things would lead to image macros, and panel series.
"Full Shane" is a reference to the meme full retard which was inspired by the actions the character Shane performs in the Season 3 finale episode.
"Carl!"" is often shouted by the character Rick Grimes when addressing his son Carl in the horror drama television series The Walking Dead, which is often mocked online for the frequency with which it occurs on the show and for Grimes' variable pronunciation of his son's name.
