Ha, that distracted me, too, even though it's completely inconsequential.

I agree about the wasted opportunity. And props to atlas for organically working a Checkhov quote into a Walking Dead

I disagree. If that went down between two guys in the parking lot of my local Whole Foods yesterday, absolutely. But in the context of the show, where they've lived with (and perpetrated) horrific violence for a year or two, and are in an armed stand-off/ambush/fight that already involves one guy preparing to rape a kid and a couple of other guys deliberately attempting to beat a guy to death to teach him a lesson (as they have pedagogically beaten people to death in the past)? Not so much.
