- "Chuck, you better get over to the Children's Castle store. There's a real old lady wandering around in there."
- —Stacey Forsythe
Esther Alwin, is found in Children's Castle, confused and crabby. She believes Chuck is a store employee and continuously scolds him for "poor service". After lengthily convincing her what's happening, she comes to her senses and realizes that Chuck is being sincere about the zombie outbreak. She then agrees to be escorted, but warns Chuck she is an old lady and will be slow, allowing Chuck to carry her back to the Safe House.
If Chuck is carrying the Leadership magazine, Esther will not need to be carried.

Frank, you better get over to the Children's Castle store. There's a real old lady wandering around in there.
Ma'am? Hey, lady! Don't be scared! I can help.
Oh, finally - a clerk! I came here to get my grandbaby a present. But on my way all these young hooligans kept bumping into me.
Hooligans? Lady, there are zombies everywhere. We have to get out of here!
Sonny, I'm shopping for my grandbaby and she's much too young for those zombie toys.
Lady, they aren't toys!
You young men are so sensitive! Fine... "Action Figures". I don't really care for your pushy salesmanship. You catch more flies with honey!
Tut tut, young man! What did I just say about flies and honey? Now you just calm down and speak with some respect for your elders.
Okay, okay... I'm calm.
Lady, I don't work here.
The zombies are NOT toys. They are real zombies.
There has been an accident and we need to get to safety.
An accident? Real zombies? Why didn't you say so, instead of blathering on about whatnot?!
It's just like you young people, constantly dilly dallying when something important is going on.
Yeah... I'm sorry, but can we please get out of here now? We have to hurry.
That's much better young man. I accept your apology, but I'm a little too old to hurry anymore. My bunions keep me from moving too fast.
Just leave it to me.
Well, then! Let's go, sonny. What are you waiting for? There are zombies out there!
