After a highly unusual zombie saves a still-living girl from an attack, the two form a relationship that sets in motion events that might transform the entire lifeless world.

[first lines]
R: [voice-over] What am I doing with my life? I'm so pale. I should get out more. I should eat better. My posture is terrible. I should stand up straighter. People would respect me more if I stood up straighter. What's wrong with me? I just want to connect. Why can't I connect with people? Oh, right, it's because I'm dead. I shouldn't be so hard on myself. I mean, we're all dead. This girl is dead. That guy is dead. That guy in the corner is definitely dead. Jesus these guys look awful.
R: [voice-over, introducing M] This is my best friend. By best friend, I mean we occasionally grunt and stare awkwardly at each other. We even have almost conversations sometimes.
M: Are you okay?
R: No.
M: Bitches, man.
M: Now you're supposed to say that I'm pretty too.
Kevin: Hey.
R: [voice-over] Say something human. Say something human.
R: How... are... you...?
R: [voice-over] Nailed it.
[last lines]
Julie: Do you remember your name yet?
R: No.
Julie: Well, you know, you could just give yourself one. Just pick one. Whatever you want.
R: I like R.
Julie: Really? You don't want to know what it was? You don't want your old life back?
R: No. I want this one.
Julie: Just R, huh?
R: Just R.
R: [voice-over] I wish I could introduce myself, but I don't remember my name anymore. I mean, I think it started with an 'r' but that's all I have left. I can't remember my name, or my parents, or my job... although my hoodie would suggest I was unemployed.
R: [voice-over] Don't be creepy. Don't be creepy. Don't be creepy.
R: [voice-over] I don't wanna be this way. I'm lonely. I'm totally lost. I mean, I'm literally lost. I've never been in this part of the airport before.
Nora: [seeing R] Oh my God! Is that him?
Julie: Yeah...
[R waves to Nora]
Nora: [waving back] Sup?
R: [voice-over] This date is not going well. I want to die all over again.
[Zombies moan in agreement]
M: They say... Fuck, yeah!
R: There's a lot of ways to get to know a person. Eating her dead boyfriend's brains is one of the more unorthodox methods, but...
R: [voice-over] So much for dreaming. You can't be whatever you want. All I'll ever be is a slow, pale, hunched-over, dead-eyed zombie. What did I think was gonna happen? That she'd actually want to stay with me? It's hopeless. This is what I get for wanting more. I should just be happy with what I had. Things don't change. I need to accept that. It's easier not to feel. Then I wouldn't have to feel like this.
R: [voice-over] Even though we can't communicate, we do share a similar taste in food. Traveling in packs just kind of makes sense. Especially when everyone and their grandmother is trying to shoot you in the head all the time.
R: [voice-over] God we move slow. This could take a while.
Solder #2: [Soldiers encounter Corpses and Boneys fighting each other] Who the hell do we shoot?
M: [throwing a Boney at the soldiers] This asshole!
[two of the soldiers kill the Boney, and then start walking past M]
M: Hi. Hi.
Julie: I actually miss him.
Nora: You... you miss... him...
Julie: I know, I'm so stupid.
Nora: Like... like you're attracted to him...
Julie: No, I don't...
Nora: Like... he could be your boyfriend? Your zombie... zombie boyfriend?
Nora: I mean, I know it's really hard to meet guys right now, with the apocalypse and stuff. Trust me. And like I know that you miss Perry. But Julie, this is just weird. Like, I wish the internet was still working so I could just look up what whatever it is that's wrong with you.
M: Want... to help.
Julie: Who the hell asked you?
M: [to R] Like her.
Grigio: Are you still bleeding?
R: Y-yes.
Grigio: Good.
[Julie glares at Grigio. Then speaks to R]
Grigio: Sorry.
Julie: What's with all the vinyl? Couldn't figure out how to work an iPod?
R: Better... sound.
Julie: Oh, you're a purist, huh?
R: More... alive.
Julie: Yep, that's true. A lot more trouble, though.
[R shrugs]
Julie: There you go again. Shrugging! Stop... shrugging, shrugger. It's a very noncommittal gesture.
[R shrugs again]
Julie: Really?
Perry: What the hell are you doing here? Are you actually dreaming right now?
R: I'm not sure.
Perry: You can't dream, corpse. Dreaming's for humans.
Julie: Chill out, Perry. He can dream if he wants to.
[Julie approaches R]
Julie: What about you, R? What do you want to be?
R: I don't know. I don't even know what I am.
Julie: Well you can be whatever you want. Isn't that what they say?
R: We can, right? You and me?
[Julie nods]
Perry: It's not gonna happen, lover boy. Not after you told her you ate her ex.
M: [after R stops him from eating Julie] What?
R: Julie.
M: Living. Eat.
[R shakes his head]
M: [nodding] Eat.
[R doesn't back down]
M: [angrily] Eat!
R: [voice-over] They call these guys Bonies. They don't bother us much, but they'll eat anything with a heartbeat. I mean, I will too, but at least I'm conflicted about it.
Perry: [R rushes towards Julie before Perry shoots him in the chest] Smile mother...
[R pulls Perry's legs out from under him and prepares to bite into his arm]
R: [voice-over] Nice watch.
R: Wait here.
M: [quietly] Be careful. Ok?
[R nods and starts to walk away]
M: [loudly] So I'll wait here!
Solder #2: We're seeing corpses fighting skeletons, sir.
Soldier #4: Copy that, we're seeing that over here too.
Grigio: Sorry, can you repeat that?
Solder #2: Copy that, we're seeing corpses fighting skeletons, sir.
[repeated line]
R: Say something human.
R: Stop staring! You're acting weird again.
[R is going to find Julie]
R: Julie and I were giving the others hope, and it was spreading fast. I guess the Bonies didn't like that. That must be why they're looking for us. I have to tell Julie. I have to explain what's happening before it's too late. I have to...
[a goat separates from a passing herd and walks toward him. R sidles away from it]
R: ...oh... no... oh no... please... go! Go with your friends! Shoo! Leave me! That's it. Okay.
[Keeps walking]
R: No matter what... we stay together... we're changing everything.
Julie: I know.
R: Stay together... promise.
Julie: I promise.
[repeated line]
R: Not safe.
R: Stay... together... safe.
Julie: What are you?
