Game of Thrones Quotes

Lord Eddard Stark, I would name you the Hand of the King.

Robert Baratheon: Yes, its been a long time. But I still remember every face. You remember your first?
Barristan Selmy: Of course, Your Grace.
Robert Baratheon: Who was it?
Barristan Selmy: A Tyroshi. Never learned the name.
Robert Baratheon: Hmm. How did you do it?
Barristan Selmy: Lance through the heart.
Robert Baratheon: Quick one. Lucky for you. Mine was some Tarly boy at the Battle of Summerhall. My horse took an arrow so I was on foot, slogging through the mud. He came running at me, the dumb high-born lad, thinking he could end the rebellion with a single swing of his sword. I knocked him down with the hammer. Gods, I was strong then. Caved in his breastplate. Probably shattered every rib he had. Stood over him, hammer in the air. Right before I brought it down he shouted, "Wait! Wait".
Robert Baratheon: They never tell you how they all shit themselves. They don't put that part in the songs. Stupid boy. Now the Tarly's bend the knee like everyone else. He could have lingered on the edge of the battle with the smart boys, and today his wife would be making him miserable, his sons would be ingrates, and he'd be waking three times in the night to piss into a bowl.

We've been sitting here for days! Start the damn joust before I piss myself...

Lord Varys: Where are you going?
Tyrion Lannister: I need to speak to someone with hair.

Tyrion Lannister: You're an awful traveling companion, do you know that? Possibly the least charming man I've ever met.
Jorah Mormont: I'm not your traveling companion.
Tyrion Lannister: We are traveling together, in each other's company, therefore...
Jorah Mormont: Do you ever shut up?
Tyrion Lannister: I sailed from King's Landing to Pentos in a crate without ever saying a word!
Jorah Mormont: Why?
Tyrion Lannister: It never occured to you to ask why until now? You never wondered why Tyrion Lannister decided to visit a brothel in Volantis?
Jorah Mormont: I'm sure you've visited many brothels in many cities.
Tyrion Lannister: I killed my father. He wanted to execute me for a crime I didn't commit. And he was fucking the woman I loved.

They need to know our Queen is responsible for it. The Sons of the Harpy have a good story. Resist the foreign invaders. Our Queen has an even better story. Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains, all that.

Winter is coming.

Robert will choose a new Hand of the King, someone to do his job while he's off fucking boars and hunting whores... or is it the other way around?

Catelyn Stark: How many times have I told you? No climbing.
Bran Stark: But he's coming right now, down our road.
Catelyn Stark: I want you to promise me, no more climbing.
Bran Stark: I promise.
Catelyn Stark: Do you know what? You always look at your feet before you lie.

Cersei Lannister: You should be the Hand of the King.
Jaime Lannister: That's an honor I can do without. Their days are too long, their lives are too short.

There's great honor in serving the Night's Watch. The Starks have manned the Wall for thousands of years, and you are a Stark. You may not have my name, but you have my blood.

You let that little girl disarm you?

Jaime Lannister: But even if the boy lives he would be a cripple, a grotesque. Give me a good, clean death anyday.
Tyrion Lannister: Speaking for the grotesques, I have to disagree. Death is so final, yet life is full of possibilities. I hope the boy does wake. I'd be very interested to hear what he has to say.
Jaime Lannister: My dear brother, there are times you make me wonder whose side you're on.
Tyrion Lannister: *My* dear brother, you wound me. You know how much I love my family.

Cersei Lannister: Please.
Catelyn Stark: I would have dressed, your Grace.
Cersei Lannister: This is your home. I'm your guest.
Cersei Lannister: Handsome one, isn't he? I lost my first boy.
Cersei Lannister: A little black-haired beauty. He was a fighter too... tried to beat the fever that took him. Forgive me. It's the last thing you need to hear right now.
Catelyn Stark: I never knew.
Cersei Lannister: It was years ago. Robert was crazed, beat his hands bloody on the wall, all the things men do to show you how much they care. The boy looked just like him. Such a little thing... a bird without feathers. They came to take his body away and Robert held me. I screamed and I battled, but he held me.
Cersei Lannister: That little bundle. They took him away and I never saw him again. Never have visited the crypt, never.
Cersei Lannister: I pray to the mother every morning and night that she return your child to you.
Catelyn Stark: I am grateful.
Cersei Lannister: Perhaps this time she'll listen.

Eddard Stark: Look at me. You're a Stark of Winterfell. You know our words.
Arya Stark: Winter is coming.

The king shits, and the Hand wipes.

A good king knows when to save his strength and when to destroy his enemies.

Cersei Lannister: You're just a soldier, aren't you? You take your orders and you carry on. I suppose it makes sense. Your older brother was trained to lead, and you were trained to follow.
Eddard Stark: I was also trained to kill my enemies, Your Grace.
Cersei Lannister: As was I.

Jaime Lannister: Do you remember Thoros of Myr charging through the breach?
Jory Cassel: With his burning sword? I'll remember that 'til the day I die...

Cersei Lannister: You're just a soldier, aren't you? You take your orders and you carry on. I suppose it makes sense. Your older brother was trained to lead, and you were trained to follow.
Eddard Stark: I was also trained to kill my enemies, Your Grace.
Cersei Lannister: As was I.

Barristan Selmy: Life is strange. Not so many years ago, we fought as enemies at the Trident.
Eddard Stark: I'm glad we never met on the field, Ser Barristan. As is my wife. I don't think the widow's life would suit her.
Barristan Selmy: You're too modest. I've seen you cut down a dozen great knights.
Eddard Stark: My father once told me you were the best he'd ever seen. Never knew the man to be wrong about matters of combat.
Barristan Selmy: He was a fine man, your father. What the Mad King did to him was a terrible crime.

Robert Baratheon: I thought being king meant I could do whatever I wanted. Enough of this. Let's go watch 'em ride. At least I can smell someone else's blood.
Eddard Stark: Robert...
Robert Baratheon: What?
Robert Baratheon: Oh.
Robert Baratheon: An inspiring sight for the people, eh? Come, bow before your king! Bow, you shits!

Ser Vardis Egen: You're far from home, Lady Stark.
Catelyn Stark: To whom do I speak?
Ser Vardis Egen: Ser Vardis Egen, Knight of the Vale. Lady Arryn expecting your visit?
Catelyn Stark: There was no time to send word.
Ser Vardis Egen: May I ask, my lady, why he is with you?
Catelyn Stark: That's why there was no time. He is my prisoner.
Ser Vardis Egen: He doesn't look like a prisoner.
Catelyn Stark: My sister will decide what he looks like.
Ser Vardis Egen: Yes, my lady. She will at that.

Robert Baratheon: We'll talk later, when I return from the hunt.
Eddard 'Ned' Stark: The hunt?
Robert Baratheon: Killing things clears my head. You'll have to sit on the throne while I'm away.
Robert Baratheon: You'll hate it more than I do.
Eddard 'Ned' Stark: The Targaryen girl...
Robert Baratheon: Seven Hells, don't start with her again! The girl will die and I'll hear no more of it. Put on the badge. And if you ever take it off again, I swear to the mother I'll pin the damned thing on Jaime Lannister!

I never loved my brothers. A sad thing for a man to admit, but it's true. You were the brother I chose.

Cersei Lannister: I took you for a King!
Robert Baratheon: Hold your tongue!
Cersei Lannister: He attacked one of my brothers and abducted the other. I should wear the armor, and you the gown.
Cersei Lannister: I shall wear this like a badge of honor.
Robert Baratheon: Wear it in silence or I'll honor you again!

I will not dishonor Robert's last hours by shedding blood in his halls and dragging frightened children from their beds.

Jaime Lannister: Poor Ned Stark. Brave man, terrible judgement.
Tywin Lannister: Attacking him was stupid.
Tywin Lannister: Lannisters don't act like fools.
Tywin Lannister: You're gonna to say something clever? Go on, say something clever.
Jaime Lannister: Catelyn Stark took my brother.
Tywin Lannister: Why is he still alive?
Jaime Lannister: Tyrion?
Tywin Lannister: Ned Stark.
Jaime Lannister: One of our men interfered, speared him through the leg before I could finish him.
Tywin Lannister: Why is he still alive?
Jaime Lannister: It wouldn't have been clean.
Tywin Lannister: Clean? You spend too much time worrying what other people think of you.
Jaime Lannister: I could care less what anyone thinks of me.
Tywin Lannister: That's what you want people to think of you.
Jaime Lannister: It's the truth.
Tywin Lannister: And you hear them whispering "Kingslayer" behind your back, doesn't it bother you?
Jaime Lannister: Of course it bothers me.
Tywin Lannister: A lion doesn't concern himself with the opinion of a sheep.
Tywin Lannister: I suppose I should be grateful that your vanity got in the way of your recklessness. I'm giving you half of our forces. 30,000 men. And we'll bring that to Catelyn Stark's girlhood home, and remind her that Lannisters pay their debts.
Jaime Lannister: I didn't realize you place such a high value on my brother's life.
Tywin Lannister: He's a Lannister! Maybe the lowest of the Lannisters, but he's one of us. And everyday that he remains a prisoner, the less our name commands respect.
Jaime Lannister: So the lion does concern himself with the opinion...
Tywin Lannister: No, that's not an opinion, it's a fact! If another house can seize one of our own and hold him captive with impunity, we are no longer a house to be feared.
Tywin Lannister: Your mother's dead. Before long I'll be dead, and you and your brother and your sister and all of her children, all of us dead, all of us rotting underground. It's the family name that lives on. It's all that lives on. Not your personal glory, not your honor... but family. You understand?
Tywin Lannister: You're blessed with abilities that few men possess. You're blessed to belong to the most powerful family in the kingdoms. And you're still blessed with youth. And what have you done with these blessings, eh? You served as a glorified bodyguard for two kings... one a mad man, the other a drunk.
Tywin Lannister: The future of our family will be determined in these next few months. We could establish a dynasty that would last a thousand years... or we could collapse into nothing, as the Targaryens did.
Tywin Lannister: I need you to become a man you're always meant to be. Not next year, not tomorrow... now.

Lord Varys: Lord Stark. You must be thirsty.
Eddard Stark: Varys.
Lord Varys: I promise you, it isn't poison.
Lord Varys: Why is it no one ever trusts the eunuch?
Lord Varys: Not so much, my lord. I would save the rest if I were you. Hide it. Men have been known to die of thirst in these cells.
Eddard Stark: What about my daughters?
Lord Varys: The younger one seems to have escaped the castle. Even my little birds cannot find her.
Eddard Stark: And Sansa?
Lord Varys: Still engaged to Joffrey. Cersei will keep her close. The rest of your household are... all dead, it grieves me to say. I do so hate the sight of blood.
Eddard Stark: You watched my men being slaughtered and did nothing.
Lord Varys: And would again, my lord. I was unarmed, unarmored, and surrounded by Lannister swords. When you look at me, do you see a hero?
Lord Varys: What madness led you to tell the queen you'd learned the truth about Joffrey's birth?
Eddard Stark: The madness of mercy. That she might save her children.
Lord Varys: Ah, the children. It's always the innocents who suffer. It wasn't the wine that killed Robert, nor the boar. The wine slowed him down and the boar ripped him open, but it was your mercy that killed the king.
Lord Varys: I trust you know you're a dead man, Lord Eddard.
Eddard Stark: The queen can't kill me. Cat holds her brother.
Lord Varys: The wrong brother, sadly, and lost to her. Your wife has let the Imp slip through her fingers.
Eddard Stark: If that's true... then slit my throat and be done with it.
Lord Varys: Not today, my lord.
Eddard Stark: Tell me something, Varys. Who do you truly serve?
Lord Varys: The realm, my lord. Someone must.

Catelyn Stark: If you lose, your father dies, your sisters die, we die.
Robb Stark: Well, that makes it simple then.
Catelyn Stark: I suppose it does.

Baelor!

Jaime Lannister: We could end this war right now, boy, save thousands of lives. You fight for the Starks, I fight for the Lannisters. Swords or lances, teeth, nails - choose your weapons, and let's end this here and now.
Robb Stark: If we do it your way, Kingslayer, you'd win. We're not doing it your way.

Jaime Lannister: If your gods are real, if they're just, why is the world so full of injustice?
Catelyn Stark: Because of men like you.
Jaime Lannister: There are no men like me. Only me.

Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish: Prominent families often forget a simple truth, I've found.
Cersei Lannister: And what truth is that?
Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish: Knowledge is power.
Cersei Lannister: Seize him.
Cersei Lannister: Cut his throat.
Cersei Lannister: Stop. Wait. I've changed my mind. Let him go.
Cersei Lannister: Step back three paces. Turn around. Close your eyes.
Cersei Lannister: Power... is power.

Cersei Lannister: You want to be Hand of the King? You want to rule? This is what ruling is; lying on a bed of weeds, ripping them out by the root, one by one, before they strangle you in your sleep!
Tyrion Lannister: I'm no king, but I think there's more to ruling than that.
Cersei Lannister: I don't care what you think! You've never taken it seriously; you haven't, Jaime hasn't! It's all fallen on me.
Tyrion Lannister: As has Jaime repeatedly, according to Stannis Baratheon.
Cersei Lannister: You're funny. You've always been funny, but none of your jokes will match the first one, will they? Do you remember, back when you ripped my mother open on your way out of her and she bled to death?
Tyrion Lannister: She was my mother too.
Cersei Lannister: Mother gone, for the sake of you. There's no bigger joke in the world than that.

Tommen Baratheon: Is Joffrey going to kill Sansa's brother?
Cersei Lannister: He might. Would you like that?
Tommen Baratheon: No. I don't think so.

Renly Baratheon: Can that truly be you?
Stannis Baratheon: Who else might it be?
Renly Baratheon: When I saw your standard, I couldn't be sure. Whose banner is that?
Stannis Baratheon: My own.
Renly Baratheon: I suppose if we use the same one, the battle will be terribly confusing. Why is your stag on fire?
Melisandre: The king has taken for his sigil the fiery heart of the Lord of Light.
Renly Baratheon: Ah, you must be this fire priestess we hear so much about. Mm, brother... now I understand why you found religion in your old age.
Stannis Baratheon: Watch yourself, Renly.
Renly Baratheon: No, no, I'm relieved. I never really believed you were a fanatic. Charmless, rigid, a bore, yes, but... but not a godly man.
Melisandre: You should kneel before your brother. He's the Lord's chosen. Born amidst salt and smoke.
Renly Baratheon: "Born amidst salt and smoke." Is he a ham?
Stannis Baratheon: That's twice I've warned you.
Catelyn Stark: Listen to yourselves. If you were sons of mine, I would knock your heads together and lock you in a bedchamber until you remembered that you were brothers.
Stannis Baratheon: It is strange to find you beside my brother, Lady Stark. Your husband was a supporter of my claim. Lord Eddard's integrity cost him his head, and you sit beside this pretender and chastise me.
Catelyn Stark: We share a common enemy.
Stannis Baratheon: The Iron Throne is mine. By right. All those that deny that are my foes.
Renly Baratheon: The whole realm denies it from Dorne to the Wall. Old men deny it with their death rattle and unborn children deny it in their mothers' wombs. No one wants you for their king. You never wanted any friends, brother, but a man without friends is a man without power.
Stannis Baratheon: For the sake of the mother who bore us, I will give you this one night to reconsider. Strike your banners, come to me before dawn, and I will grant you your old seat in the council. I'll even name you my heir... until a son is born to me. Otherwise, I shall destroy you.
Renly Baratheon: Look across those fields, brother. Do you see all those banners?
Stannis Baratheon: You think a few bolts of cloth will make you king?
Renly Baratheon: No. The men holding those bolts of cloth will make me king.
Stannis Baratheon: We shall see, Renly. Come the dawn, we shall see.
Melisandre: Look to your sins, Lord Renly. The night is dark and full of terrors.
Renly Baratheon: Would you believe? I loved him once.

Protestor: Brother fornicates with sister in the bed of kings. Are we surprised when the fruit of their incest is rotten? Yes. A rotten king.
Tyrion Lannister: It's hard to argue with his assessment.
Bronn: Not after what he did to your birthday present.
Tyrion Lannister: The king is a lost cause. It's the rest of us I'm worried about now.

Cersei Lannister: Killed? By whom?
Tyrion Lannister: Accounts differ. Most seem to implicate Catelyn Stark in some way.
Cersei Lannister: Really? Who'd have thought?
Tyrion Lannister: Some say it was one of his own Kingsguard, while still others say it was Stannis himself who did it after negotiations went sour.
Cersei Lannister: Whomever did it, I say well done.
Tyrion Lannister: That's not what Varys says. He says Renly's army is flocking to support Stannis, which would give Stannis superiority over us on both land and sea.
Cersei Lannister: Littlefinger says we can outspend him three-to-one.
Tyrion Lannister: And I say Father raised you to have too much respect for money.

Joffrey Baratheon: Traitors! I'll have their heads!
Tyrion Lannister: Oh you blind, bloody fool!
Joffrey Baratheon: You can't insult me!
Tyrion Lannister: We've had vicious kings, and we've had idiot kings, but I don't think we've ever been cursed with a vicious idiot for a king!
Joffrey Baratheon: You can't!
Tyrion Lannister: I can, I am!
Joffrey Baratheon: They attacked me!
Tyrion Lannister: The threw a cow pie at you so you decide to kill them all? They're starving, you fool! All because of a war you started!
Joffrey Baratheon: YOU'RE TALKING TO A KING!
Tyrion Lannister: And now I've struck a king! Did my hand fall from my wrist? Where is the Stark girl?
Joffrey Baratheon: Let them have her!
Tyrion Lannister: If she dies, you'll never get your Uncle Jaime back! You owe him quite a bit, you know!

One day I pray you love someone. I pray you love her so much, when you close your eyes, you see her face. I want that for you. I want you to know what it's like to love someone, truly love someone, before I take her from you.

Robb Stark: This cannot be true.
Roose Bolton: We've had ravens from White Harbour, Barrowtown and the Dreadfort. I'm afraid it is true.
Robb Stark: Why? Why would Theon...?
Roose Bolton: Because the Greyjoys are treasonous whores.
Robb Stark: My brothers...
Roose Bolton: We've heard nothing of them... but Rodrik Cassel is dead.
Catelyn Stark: I told you never trust a Greyjoy!
Robb Stark: I must go north at once.
Roose Bolton: There's still a war to win, Your Grace!
Robb Stark: How can I call myself 'King' if I can't hold my own castle? How can I ask men to follow me if...?
Roose Bolton: You are a king! And that means you don't have to do everything yourself.
Catelyn Stark: Let me go and talk to Theon.
Robb Stark: There will be no talk. He will die for this!
Roose Bolton: Theon holds the castle with a skeleton crew. Let me send word to my bastard at the Dreadfort; he can raise a few hundred men and retake Winterfell before the new moon. We have the Lannisters on the run; if you march all the way back north now, you'll lose what you gained. My boy would be honoured to bring you Prince Theon's head.
Robb Stark: Tell your son Bran and Rickon's safety is paramount. And Theon... I want him brought to me alive. I want to look him in the eye and ask him 'Why?'... and then I will take his head myself!

It's hard to put a leash on a dog once you've put a crown on its head.

Any time a Targaryen is born, the gods flip a coin.

Any time a Targaryen is born, the gods flip a coin.

Jaime Lannister: I was sixteen once. I also had to replace someone's squire on short notice.
Alton Lannister: Which knight was it?
Jaime Lannister: Barristan Selmy. The fight against the kingswood outlaws, before your time.
Alton Lannister: What was he like?
Jaime Lannister: He was a painter. A painter who only used red.I couldn't imagine being able to fight like that. Not back then. And to help him do it, to be a part of something that perfect. I don't need to explain how that felt, not to you.
Alton Lannister: It's hard to put into words.
Jaime Lannister: It's like stepping into a dream you've been dreaming for as long as you can remember and finding out that the dream is more real than your life.

I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.

Don't fight for a king. Don't fight for his kingdoms. Don't fight for honor, don't fight for glory, don't fight for riches, because you won't get any. This is your city Stannis means to sack. That's your gate he's ramming. If he gets in it will be your house that burns. Your gold he steals, your women he rapes. Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

Tears aren't a woman's only weapon. The best one's between your legs.

I'm a monster, as well as a dwarf. You should charge me double.

I wish someone would have told me, I wouldn't have had to steal that pig.

Cersei Lannister: A bit of a comedown from chamber of the Hand. But then I don't suppose you need much room.
Tyrion Lannister: Grand Maester Pycelle made the same joke. You must be proud to be as funny as a man whose balls brush his knees.

Cersei Lannister: You're a clever man. But you're not half as clever as you think you are.
Tyrion Lannister: Still makes me more clever than you.

Daenerys Targaryen: I owe you my life, ser.
Barristan Selmy: The honor is mine, my queen.
Daenerys Targaryen: You know this man?
Jorah Mormont: I know him as one of the greatest fighters the Seven Kingdoms has ever seen and as the Lord Commander of Robert Baratheon's Kingsguard.
Barristan Selmy: King Robert is dead. I have been searching for you, Daenerys Stormborn, to ask your forgiveness. I was sworn to protect your family. I failed them. I am Barristan Selmy, Kingsguard to your father. Allow me to join your Queensguard and I will not fail you again.

Shae: We have to protect her.
Tyrion Lannister: We can't. Now that the Lannisters have discarded her, Sansa will have many suitors. A great beauty with a very old name.
Shae: A great beaut... oh, a great beauty?
Tyrion Lannister: Yes, she is, objectively, very. Her face is quite pleasing to other men, and to women, people in general. But not to me, of course. I only have eyes for you.
Shae: You pervert! You want her? This child?
Tyrion Lannister: I don't even want to talk about her.
Shae: But you ARE!
Tyrion Lannister: Only because you're making me!
Shae: I didn't force you to open your mouth and make words come out.
Tyrion Lannister: This is cruel and unfair. Cruelly unfair.
Shae: Aww, the cruelty. "Shae's so cruel to me."
Tyrion Lannister: Mmm, yes.
Shae: Now do you think I'm cruel?
Tyrion Lannister: Only if you stop.

Jaime Lannister: It's a tough decision. Take the bridge and risk being seen, or cross the great water.
Brienne of Tarth: Silence, Kingslayer.
Jaime Lannister: Anyone can see us on the bridge, but cross by water and the current could take us, or I could escape down the river.
Brienne of Tarth: Good luck.
Jaime Lannister: It's wonderful to watch you wrestle with these dilemmas. Which will she choose?
Jaime Lannister: Gambler at heart. Wouldn't have guessed.
Brienne of Tarth: Be quick about it.

Tyrion Lannister: Master of Coin?
Tywin Lannister: It would appear to be a position that best suits your talents.
Tyrion Lannister: I'm quite good at spending money, but a lifetime of outrageous wealth hasn't taught me much about managing it.

Jaime Lannister: When we make camp tonight, you'll be raped. More than once. None of these men have ever been with a noblewomen. You'd be wise not to resist.
Brienne of Tarth: Would I?
Jaime Lannister: They'll knock your teeth out.
Brienne of Tarth: You think I care about my teeth?
Jaime Lannister: No, I don't think you care about your teeth. If you fight them, they will kill you, do you understand? I'm the prisoner of value, not you. image

Ser Jorah Mormont: Khaleesi, a dragon is worth more than any army. Aegon Targaryen proved that.
Daenerys Targaryen: You're both here to advise me. I value your advice, but if you ever question me in front of strangers again, you'll be advising someone else. Is that understood?

Lord Varys: I was going to tell you the story of how I was cut. Do you want to hear it still?
Tyrion Lannister: I don't know. Do I?
Lord Varys: As a boy, in Myr, I traveled with a troupe of actors through the Free Cities. One day, a man approached my master with an offer too tempting to refuse. I feared the man meant to use me, as I'd heard some men use small boys, but what he wanted was far worse. He gave me a potion that made me powerless to move or speak, yet did nothing to dull my senses. With a hooked blade, he sliced me, root and stem, chanting all the while. He burned my parts on a brazier; the flames burned blue, and I heard a voice answer his call. Still dream of that night. Not of the sorcerer, not of his blade... I dream of the voice. Was it a god? A demon? Some conjurer's trick? I don't know, but the sorcerer called and a voice answered. And ever since that day, I have hated magic, and all who practice it. But, you can see why I was eager to aid in your fight against Stannis and his Red Priestess: a symbolic revenge, of sorts.
Tyrion Lannister: Yes, I feel the need for actual revenge. Against the actual person who tried to have me killed, which will require a certain degree of influence, which...
Lord Varys: You do not possess at the moment. But influence is largely a matter of patience, I find. Once I had served the sorcerer's purpose, he threw me out of his house, to die. I resolved to live, to spite him. I begged, I sold what parts of my body remained to me, I became an excellent thief. And soon, learned that the contents of a man's letters are more valuable than the contents of his purse. Step by step, one distasteful task after another, I made my way from the slums of Myr to the Small Council Chamber. Influence grows, like a weed. I tended mine, patiently, until its tendrils reached from the Red Keep, all the way across to the far side of the world where I managed to wrap them around something very special.
Tyrion Lannister: The sorcerer.
Lord Varys: Hello, my old friend. It's been a long time. I have no doubt, the revenge you want will be yours in time if you have the stomach for it. image

Lord Varys: I was going to tell you the story of how I was cut. Do you want to hear it still?

Tyrion Lannister: Yes, I feel the need for actual revenge. Against the actual person who tried to have me killed, which will require a certain degree of influence, which...
Lord Varys: You do not possess at the moment. But influence is largely a matter of patience, I find. Once I had served the sorcerer's purpose, he threw me out of his house, to die. I resolved to live, to spite him. I begged, I sold what parts of my body remained to me, I became an excellent thief. And soon, learned that the contents of a man's letters are more valuable than the contents of his purse. Step by step, one distasteful task after another, I made my way from the slums of Myr to the Small Council Chamber. Influence grows, like a weed. I tended mine, patiently, until its tendrils reached from the Red Keep, all the way across to the far side of the world where I managed to wrap them around something very special.
Tyrion Lannister: The sorcerer.
Lord Varys: Hello, my old friend. It's been a long time. I have no doubt, the revenge you want will be yours in time if you have the stomach for it.

Brienne of Tarth: What are you doing, eat something.
Jaime Lannister: I'm dying.
Brienne of Tarth: You can't die. You need to live. To take revenge... You have a taste, one taste of the real world, where people have important things taken from them, and you whine, and cry, and quit. You sound like a bloody woman.

Cersei Lannister: Margaery has her claws on Joffrey. She knows how to manipulate him.
Tywin Lannister: Good. I wish you knew how to manipulate him. I don't distrust you because you're a woman. I distrust you because you're not as smart as you think you are. You've allowed that boy to ride roughshod over you and everyone else in this city.
Cersei Lannister: Perhaps... you should try stopping him from doing what he likes.
Tywin Lannister: I will. image

Tywin Lannister: Good. I wish you knew how to manipulate him. I don't distrust you because you're a woman. I distrust you because you're not as smart as you think you are. You've allowed that boy to ride roughshod over you and everyone else in this city.
Cersei Lannister: Perhaps... you should try stopping him from doing what he likes.
Tywin Lannister: I will.

Unsullied! Slay the masters, slay the soldiers, slay every man who holds a whip, but harm no child. Strike the chains off every slave you see!

Tywin Lannister: There, you see? You will wed her, bed her, and put a child in her. Surely you're capable of that.
Tyrion Lannister: And if I refuse?
Tywin Lannister: You wanted to be rewarded for your valor in battle. Sansa Stark is a finer reward than you could ever dare hope for. And it is past time you were wed.
Tyrion Lannister: I was wed. Or don't you remember you?
Tywin Lannister: Only too well.
Cersei Lannister: You should be thanking the gods for this. This is more than you deserve.
Tywin Lannister: Tyrion will do as he's bid.
Tywin Lannister: As will you.
Cersei Lannister: What do you mean?
Tywin Lannister: You'll marry Ser Loras.
Cersei Lannister: I will not.
Tywin Lannister: The boy is heir to Highgarden. Tyrion will secure the North. You will secure the Reach.
Cersei Lannister: No, I won't do it.
Tywin Lannister: Yes, you will. You're still fertile. You need to marry and breed.
Cersei Lannister: I am Queen Regent, not some broodmare. You're my daughter! You will do as I command and you will marry Loras Tyrell and put an end to the disgusting rumors about you once and for all.
Cersei Lannister: Father, don't make me do it again, please.
Tywin Lannister: Not another word!
Tywin Lannister: My children. You've disgraced the Lannister name for far too long.

Jaime Lannister: No milk of the poppy.
Qyburn: There will be pain.
Jaime Lannister: I'll scream.
Qyburn: A great deal of pain.
Jaime Lannister: I'll scream loudly.

Daenerys Targaryen: What is your name?
Grey Worm: Grey Worm.
Daenerys Targaryen: "Grey Worm."
Missandei: All unsullied boys are given new names when they are cut - Grey Worm, Red Flea, Black Rat - names that remind them of what they are: vermin.
Daenerys Targaryen: From this day forward, you will choose your own names. You will tell your fellow soldiers to do the same. Throw away your slave name; choose the name your parents gave you, or any other. A name that gives you pride.
Grey Worm: "Grey Worm" gives me pride. It is a lucky name. The name this one was born with was cursed. That was the name he had when he was taken as a slave. But Grey Worm is the name this one had the day Daenerys Stormborn set him free.

Where to begin... this is awkward.

Tyrion Lannister: I don't suppose there is anything we can do about this?
Cersei Lannister: We can have them both killed.
Tyrion Lannister: It's hard to say which of the four of us is getting the worst of the arrangement. Probably Sansa. Though Loras will certainly come to know a deep and singular misery.
Cersei Lannister: Father doesn't discriminate.

Tyrion Lannister: She's a child.
Bronn: She's a foot taller than you.
Tyrion Lannister: A tall child.
Bronn: What's the youngest you've ever had?
Tyrion Lannister: Not that young.
Bronn: How much older?
Tyrion Lannister: Older.
Bronn: You're a lord, she's a lady, and a beauty at that. I don't see the problem.
Tyrion Lannister: Shae's not going to like it.
Bronn: Shae is a whore! Are you going to marry her? Eh? How did marrying a whore work out for you the first time?
Tyrion Lannister: I should never have told you about that.
Bronn: You want Shae, keep her. Wed one and bed the other. All you have to do is get a son in the Stark girl. He'll be lord of Winterfell one day; you can rule the North in his name. You'll have two women and a whole kingdom of your own.
Tyrion Lannister: Two women to despise me and a whole kingdom to join them.
Bronn: You waste time trying to get people to love you. You'll end up the most popular dead man in town.
Bronn: You want to fuck that Stark girl. You just don't want to admit it.
Tyrion Lannister: I don't pay you to put evil notions in my head. The ones already there don't need company.
Bronn: You pay me to kill people who bother you. Evil notions come free.

Jaime Lannister: I owe you a debt.
Brienne of Tarth: When Catelyn Stark released you, we both made a promise to her. Now it's your promise. You gave your word. Keep it and consider the debt paid.
Jaime Lannister: I will return the Stark girls to their mother. I swear it.
Brienne of Tarth: Good-bye, Ser Jaime.

Barristan Selmy: The Yunkish are a proud people; they will not bend.
Daenerys Targaryen: And what happens to things that don't bend?

Catelyn Stark: Lord Walder is prickly by nature.
Brynden 'Blackfish' Tully: Prickly? That what you call it? Might be the least pleasant man I've ever met.
Catelyn Stark: Yes, and that is why...
Brynden 'Blackfish' Tully: I've seen wet shits I liked better than Walder Frey.

I promise you one thing, my lady. I won't ever hurt you. image

I promise you one thing, my lady. I won't ever hurt you.

If you ever call me sister again, I'll have you strangled in your sleep.

A man who fights for gold can't afford to lose to a girl.

Catelyn Stark: Don't you drink, Lord Bolton?
Roose Bolton: Never do, my lady. Dulls the senses.
Brynden 'Blackfish' Tully: That's the point. Didn't you marry one of these Frey girls?
Roose Bolton: Aye. Lord Walder let me choose any of his granddaughters, and promised me the girl's weight in silver as a dowry. So I have a fat young bride.
Catelyn Stark: I hope she makes you very happy.
Roose Bolton: Well, she's made me very rich.

Joffrey Baratheon: Everyone is mine to torment! You'd do well to remember that, you little monster.
Tyrion Lannister: Oh, "monster". Perhaps you should speak to me more softly then. Monsters are dangerous and, just now, kings are dying like flies.

Tyrion Lannister: How long does it go on?
Cersei Lannister: Until we've dealt with all our enemies.
Tyrion Lannister: Every time we deal with an enemy, we create two more.
Cersei Lannister: Then I suppose it will go on for quite a long time.

People learn to love their chains.

Bronn: How many Dornishmen does it take to fuck a goat?
Tyrion Lannister: Please don't.

Jaime Lannister: You've wanted one of these in the family for a long time.
Tywin Lannister: And now we have two.
Jaime Lannister: Two?
Tywin Lannister: The original weapon was absurdly large. Plenty of steel for two swords.

Qyburn: A work of art. The craftsmanship is excellent.
Jaime Lannister: You like it so much, you're welcome to chop off your own hand and take it.
Cersei Lannister: You're such an ingrate. I spent days with the goldsmith getting the details just right.
Jaime Lannister: Days?
Cersei Lannister: Better part of an afternoon.

A toast. To the proud Lannister children: the dwarf, the cripple, and the mother of madness. image

A toast. To the proud Lannister children: the dwarf, the cripple, and the mother of madness.

Loras Tyrell: Ser Jaime, I'm very sorry.
Jaime Lannister: Ser Loras, it's quite all right.
Jaime Lannister: Your sister looks very beautiful.
Loras Tyrell: As does yours.
Jaime Lannister: So... looking forward to your wedding?
Loras Tyrell: Yes, very much.
Jaime Lannister: Our fathers are both rather keen on the prospect.
Loras Tyrell: They certainly are.
Jaime Lannister: Perhaps they should get married.
Jaime Lannister: If you were to marry Cersei, she'd murder you in your sleep.
Jaime Lannister: If you somehow managed to put a child in her first, she'd murder him, too, long before he drew his first breath. Luckily for you, none of this will happen because you'll never marry her.
Loras Tyrell: And neither will you.

He did this. He poisoned my son, your king. Take him. Take him! TAKE HIM! TAKE HIM!

Podrick Payne: There's something else, my lord. A man, I didn't know his face, he came to ask if I'd testify against you. Said I'd be named Ser Podrick Payne if I told the judges you'd bought a poison called the strangler.
Tyrion Lannister: Ser Podrick Payne? Has a nice ring to it. What did you tell him?
Podrick Payne: I didn't tell them anything, my lord.
Tyrion Lannister: Are you going to accept their offer?
Podrick Payne: My lord.
Tyrion Lannister: Testifying against me wasn't a suggestion. If they can't tempt you with honey, they'll choose something less sweet.
Podrick Payne: You've been good to me, my lord.
Tyrion Lannister: Pod, the trial's in a fortnight. They'll want an answer before that.
Podrick Payne: I already gave them an answer, my lord.
Tyrion Lannister: I will *not* have you dying on my behalf. Do you hear me? If I have to take that long walk to the executioner's block, I don't want to see your head already mounted.
Podrick Payne: My lord.
Tyrion Lannister: Pod, I am giving you an order. Go and find my brother. Tell him I need him. And get yourself out of King's Landing before it's too late.
Tyrion Lannister: Pod!
Tyrion Lannister: This is farewell.
Podrick Payne: Farewell, my lord.
Tyrion Lannister: Pod.
Tyrion Lannister: There has never lived a more loyal squire.

You're a hateful woman. Why have the gods made me love a hateful woman?

Daenerys Targaryen: Are you sure you don't want a horse?
Daario Naharis: I don't want a horse.
Daenerys Targaryen: Horses are faster than men.
Daario Naharis: Horses are dumber than men.

Jaime Lannister: To tell you the truth, this isn't so bad. Four walls. A pot to piss in. I was chained to a wooden post, covered in my own shit, for months.
Tyrion Lannister: Is that supposed to make me feel better?
Jaime Lannister: Maybe a bit.
Jaime Lannister: I'm sorry I didn't come sooner.
Tyrion Lannister: It's complicated, yes. So how is our sister?
Tyrion Lannister: How do you think? Her son died in her arms.
Tyrion Lannister: "Her" son?
Jaime Lannister: Don't.

Bronn: Your brother ever tell you how I came into his service?
Jaime Lannister: You stood for him in his trial by combat at the Eyrie.
Bronn: Aye. But only when Lady Arryn demanded the trial take place that day. You were his first choice. He named you for his champion because he knew you would ride, day and night, to come fight for him. You gonna fight for him now?

Cersei Lannister: Why did Catelyn Stark set you free?
Jaime Lannister: What?
Cersei Lannister: I've been wondering for months. Ever since that great cow brought you back to the capital. Why did she set you free?
Jaime Lannister: You know why. She'd hoped I'd send her daughters back to her.
Cersei Lannister: She hoped or did you promise?
Jaime Lannister: I swore by all the gods that if her daughters were alive, I'd return them to her.
Cersei Lannister: So you made a sacred vow to the enemy.
Jaime Lannister: I wanted to get back to you. Should I have told her to fuck off?
Cersei Lannister: You didn't mean it, then? You have no loyalty to Catelyn Stark?
Jaime Lannister: Catelyn Stark's dead.

Daenerys Targaryen: How are the lessons going?
Missandei: Very well, Your Grace.
Grey Worm: Missandei is teacher good, my Queen.

Cersei Lannister: I want to believe that. I want to believe that she's happy.
Oberyn Martell: You have my word. We don't hurt little girls in Dorne.
Cersei Lannister: Everywhere in the world, they hurt little girls.

Jorah Mormont: King Joffrey Baratheon is dead. Murdered at his own wedding.
Barristan Selmy: And we have taken the Meereenese navy, Your Grace.
Daario Naharis: The Second Sons took the Meereenese navy.
Daenerys Targaryen: Who told you to take the navy?
Daario Naharis: No one.
Daenerys Targaryen: So why did you do it?
Daario Naharis: I heard you liked ships.
Daenerys Targaryen: How many ships?
Barristan Selmy: 93, Your Grace.
Daenerys Targaryen: How many men can they carry?
Barristan Selmy: 9,300, not counting sailors.
Daenerys Targaryen: Would that be enough to take King's Landing?
Jorah Mormont: The Lannisters have more.

Tyrion Lannister: Father, I wish to confess. I wish to confess!
Tywin Lannister: You wish to confess?
Tyrion Lannister: I saved you. I saved this city. All your worthless lives. I should have let Stannis kill you all.
Tywin Lannister: Tyrion, do you wish to confess?
Tyrion Lannister: Yes, father. I'm guilty. Guilty. Is that what you want to hear?
Tywin Lannister: You admit you poisoned the king?
Tyrion Lannister: No. Of that, I'm innocent. I'm guilty of a far more monstrous crime. I'm guilty of being a dwarf.
Tywin Lannister: You are not on trial for being a dwarf.
Tyrion Lannister: Oh, yes I am. I've been on trial for that my entire life.
Tywin Lannister: Have you nothing to say in your defense?
Tyrion Lannister: Nothing but this: I did not do it.
Tyrion Lannister: I did not kill Joffrey, but I wish that I had! Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores!
Tyrion Lannister: I wish I was the monster you think I am! I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you! I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it!
Tywin Lannister: Ser Meryn! Ser Meryn, escort the prisoner back to his cell!
Tyrion Lannister: I will not give my life for Joffery's murder and I know I'll get no justice here, so I will let the gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat.

Tyrion Lannister: Not going well, is it?
Jaime Lannister: You're going to be found guilty.
Tyrion Lannister: Oh! You think so?
Jaime Lannister: When you are, you need to enter a formal plea for mercy and asked to be sent to the Wall. Father's agreed to it. He'll spare your life and allow you to join the Night's Watch.
Tyrion Lannister: Ned Stark was promised the same thing, and we both know how that turned out.
Jaime Lannister: My father isn't Joffrey. He'll keep his word.
Tyrion Lannister: How do you know?
Jaime Lannister: Do you trust me?
Jaime Lannister: Keep your mouth shut, no more outbursts. This will all be over soon.

Daenerys Targaryen: How many more?
Missandei: There are two hundred and twelve supplicants waiting, Your Grace.
Daenerys Targaryen: Two hundred and twelve?
Daenerys Targaryen: Send the next one in.

Who does Cercei plan on naming as a champion? I hope It's Ser Meryn Trent. I'd enjoy watching Bronn disembowel that pompous child beater.

Jaime Lannister: I made a deal for you to keep your ungrateful head on your ungrateful neck a little while longer.
Tyrion Lannister: I'm sorry, what am I grateful for? The opportunity to live and die at the wall as punishment for a crime I did not commit?
Jaime Lannister: You threw your life away. You threw it away! It's not a joke. You understand that, don't you?
Tyrion Lannister: Of course it's a joke, just not a very funny one. I couldn't... I couldn't listen to her, standing there, telling her lies. I couldn't do it!
Jaime Lannister: You fell in love with a whore.
Tyrion Lannister: Yes, I fell in love with a whore. And I was stupid enough to think that she had fallen in love with me. That deal you made, it was everything Father wanted. You do see that? He gets you back as his heir. The future lord of the Rock. And he ships me off to Castle Black, out of sight at last. All so perfect. It felt good to take that from him. He knows I'm innocent and he's willing to sacrifice me anyway.
Jaime Lannister: He's willing to sacrifice any of us.
Tyrion Lannister: Not you! You're the golden son! You could kill a king, lose a hand, fuck your own sister, you'll always be the golden son.
Jaime Lannister: Careful. I'm the last friend you've got.
Tyrion Lannister: At least I got to tell them what they really are.
Jaime Lannister: Yes, brilliant speech. They'll be talking about it for days to come. I thought you were a realist. Didn't realize you would die for pride.

Cersei Lannister: Ser Gregor, welcome to the capital. Thank you for riding here so quickly.
Cersei Lannister: You seem to be in good form.
Gregor Clegane: Who am I fighting?
Cersei Lannister: Does it matter?

Missandei: Your Grace.
Missandei: May I bring you something? To help you sleep.
Missandei: Forgive me for disturbing you.
Daenerys Targaryen: Stay with me.
Daenerys Targaryen: Never betray me. Never.

Tyrion Lannister: Oh, get on with it, you son of a whore!
Jaime Lannister: Is that any way to speak about our mother?

Cersei Lannister: When you marched into the throne room to tell me we'd won the Battle of Blackwater...
Cersei Lannister: Do you remember?
Cersei Lannister: I was sitting on the Iron Throne with Tommen. I was about to give him essence of nightshade. That's how far I was willing to go when I thought someone awful had come to take my son away. Someone awful is coming to take him away.
Tywin Lannister: No.
Cersei Lannister: Joffrey is dead. Myrcella's been sold like livestock. And now you want to ship me off to Highgarden and steal my boy. My last boy. Margaery will dig her claws in, you will dig your claws in and you'll fight over him like beasts until you rip him apart. I will burn our house to the ground before I let that happen.
Tywin Lannister: And how will you do that?
Cersei Lannister: I'll tell everyone the truth.
Tywin Lannister: What truth would that be?
Cersei Lannister: You don't know, do you? You never believed it. How is that possible? What am I saying? Of course it's possible. How can someone so consumed by the idea of his family have any conception what his actual family was doing? We were right there in front of you, and you didn't see us. One look in the past 20 years, one real look at your own children and you would have known.
Tywin Lannister: Known what?
Cersei Lannister: Everything they say is true, about Jaime and me.
Tywin Lannister: No.
Cersei Lannister: Your legacy is a lie.
Tywin Lannister: I don't believe you.
Cersei Lannister: Yes, you do.

Fennesz: Even if they are safe, who would I be there? What purpose would I serve? With my master, I was a teacher. I had the respect and love of his children.
Daenerys Targaryen: What is it that you want from me?
Fennesz: Your Grace, I ask you to let me sell myself back to Master Mighdal.
Daenerys Targaryen: You want to return to a man who owned you like a goat or a chair?
Fennesz: Please, Your Grace. The young may rejoice in the new world you have built for them, but for those of us too old to change, there is only fear and squalor. I am not alone. There are many outside waiting to beg the same of you.
Daenerys Targaryen: I did not take this city to preside over the injustice I fought to destroy. I took it to bring people freedom. But freedom means making your own choices.

A drunken dwarf will never be the savior of the Seven Kingdoms.

They're going to try to take it away, all of it, all of them out there, our enemies. They're waiting in line to make sure he's really dead and as soon as they see the stones on his eyes they'll set to work on tearing us apart.

Tyrion may be a monster, but at least he killed our father on purpose. You killed him by mistake with stupidity.

Angry snakes lash out. It makes chopping off their heads that much easier.

Lord Varys: Cersei has offered a lordship to the man who brings her your head.
Tyrion Lannister: She ought to offer her cunt. Best part of her for the best part of me.

Jaime Lannister: [Myrcella's necklace sent to them mounted on the neck of a serpent] It's a threat.
Cersei Lannister: Of course it's a threat! Our daughter's alone in Dorne surrounded by people who hate our family.
Cersei Lannister: "It's a threat."
Jaime Lannister: No note?
Cersei Lannister: They blame us for the death of Oberyn and his sister and every other tragedy that's befallen their cursed country.
Cersei Lannister: I will burn their cities to the ground if they touch her!
Jaime Lannister: Softer.
Cersei Lannister: What?
Jaime Lannister: Not so loud.
Cersei Lannister: Our daughter's in danger, and you're worried I'm speaking too loudly?
Jaime Lannister: The world can't know she's our daughter.
Cersei Lannister: Then don't call her your daughter. You've never been a father to her.
Jaime Lannister: If I were a father to any of my children, they'd be stoned in the street.
Cersei Lannister: And what has your caution brought? Our oldest child murdered at his own wedding. Our only daughter shipped off to Dorne. Our baby boy set to marry that smirking whore from Highgarden!

Cersei Lannister: Uncle Kevan, in light of your position as commander of the Lannister armies, it would please the king for you to serve as his Master of War. No man living better deserves the title.
Kevan Lannister: That is kind of you to say. I would like to hear it from the king himself.
Cersei Lannister: The king is very busy at this moment.
Kevan Lannister: He should be here, learning what it means to rule.
Cersei Lannister: He is learning. On this occasion, in his capacity as ruler, he has asked me to speak on his behalf.
Kevan Lannister: I returned to the capital to pay my respect to my brother, and to you, and to serve the king. I did not return to the capital to serve as your puppet, to watch you stack the Small Council with sycophants. Sending your own brother away so you may...
Cersei Lannister: My brother has left the capital to lead a sensitive diplomatic mission.
Kevan Lannister: What mission?
Cersei Lannister: That is not your concern as Master of War.
Kevan Lannister: I do not recognize your authority to dictate what is and what is not my concern. You are the queen mother. Nothing more.
Cersei Lannister: You would abandon your king in his time of need?
Kevan Lannister: If he wants to send for me, I will be waiting for him... at Casterly Rock.

Cersei Lannister: I just wanted you to know if... if there's ever anything I could do for you...
Margaery Tyrell: You are very sweet.
Cersei Lannister: Tommen seems quite taken with his new queen.
Margaery Tyrell: I absolutely adore him. You raised a gallant young man. I'm forever grateful.
Cersei Lannister: Good... Good. I'm glad to hear you're happy.
Margaery Tyrell: Ecstatic. I really am. Exhausted, to be honest. But.. what can I expect?
Margaery Tyrell: He is half lion, half stag.

Tyrion Lannister: A highborn knight from the north of Westeros down on his luck in Essos. Dragon epaulets, bear sigil breastplate. You're Jorah Mormont.
Tyrion Lannister: I have to ask - how *exactly* were you serving your Queen in a whorehouse half a world away? Is it possible that you were running? Why would you be running? And why would she have sent you away?
Tyrion Lannister: Oh, wait. You were spying on her, weren't you? It's all coming back to me. I was drunk through most of the Small Council meetings, but it's all coming back. You passed notes to Varys' little birds.
Tyrion Lannister: She found out, didn't she? Found out and exiled you. Now you hope to win back her favor with a gift. Risky scheme. One might even say desperate. You think Daenerys will execute me and pardon you? I'd say the reverse is just as likely.

Bronn: You ever been to Dorne?
Jaime Lannister: No.
Bronn: Well, I have. The Dornish are crazy. All they want to do is fight and fuck, fuck and fight.
Jaime Lannister: You should be happy to go back then.

Grand Maester Pycelle: The Small Council grows smaller and smaller.
Cersei Lannister: Not small enough.

Long, sullen silences and an occasional punch in the face. The Mormont Way.

Don't want to overfeed them. Perhaps tomorrow.

Bronn: Once we've got the princess, than what?
Jaime Lannister: I like to improvise.
Bronn: That explains the golden hand.

Cersei Lannister: Well, if it isn't the famous tart-tongued Queen of Thorns.
Olenna Tyrell: Well, if it isn't the famous tart Queen Cersei.

Daenerys Targaryen: Get him out of my sight.
Jorah Mormont: Khaleesi, please, I just need a moment of your time. I brought you a gift.
Tyrion Lannister: It's true. He has.
Daenerys Targaryen: Who are you?
Tyrion Lannister: I'm the gift. It's a pleasure to meet you, Your Grace. My name is Tyrion Lannister.

Myrcella Baratheon: You looked different when I left. You had more hair.
Jaime Lannister: And more hands.

Look at me! Look at my face! It's the last thing you'll see before you die.

Daenerys Targaryen: Get him out of my sight.
Jorah Mormont: Khaleesi, please, I just need a moment of your time. I brought you a gift.
Tyrion Lannister: It's true. He has.
Daenerys Targaryen: Who are you?
Tyrion Lannister: I'm the gift. It's a pleasure to meet you, Your Grace. My name is Tyrion Lannister.

Someday, if you decide not to execute me, I'll tell you all about why I killed my father. And on that day, should it ever come, we'll need more wine than this.

Daenerys Targaryen: So I should welcome you into my service because you murdered members of your own family?
Tyrion Lannister: Into your service? Your grace, we have only just met. It's too soon to know if you deserve my service. image

Daenerys Targaryen: So I should welcome you into my service because you murdered members of your own family?
Tyrion Lannister: Into your service? Your grace, we have only just met. It's too soon to know if you deserve my service.

 In my experience, eloquent men are right. Every bit as often as imbeciles. image

In my experience, eloquent men are right. Every bit as often as imbeciles.

Tyrion Lannister: It's easy to confuse what is with what ought to be, especially when what is has worked out in your favor.
Hizdahr zo Loraq: I'm not talking about myself. I'm talking about the necessary conditions for greatness.
Daenerys Targaryen: That is greatness?
Hizdahr zo Loraq: That is a vital part of the great city of Meereen, which existed long before you or I and will remain standing long after we have returned to the dirt.
Tyrion Lannister: My father would have liked you.

Lord Varys: Hello, old friend. I thought we were so happy together until you abandoned me.
Tyrion Lannister: I suppose there's no point asking how you found me.
Lord Varys: The birds sing in the west, the birds sing in the east, if one knows how to listen. They tell me you've already found favor with the Mother of Dragons.
Tyrion Lannister: Well, she didn't execute me, so that's a promising start. Now the heroes are off to find her, and I'm stuck here trying to placate a city on the brink of civil war. Any advice for an old comrade?
Lord Varys: Information is the key. You need to learn your enemy's strengths and strategies. You need to learn which of your friends are not your friends.
Tyrion Lannister: If only I knew someone with a vast network of spies.
Lord Varys: If only. A grand old city, choking on violence, corruption, and deceit. Who could possibly have any experience managing such a massive ungainly beast?
Tyrion Lannister: I did miss you.
Lord Varys: Oh, I know.

Jaime Lannister: We don't choose who we love. It just... well... it's beyond our control. I sound like an idiot.
Myrcella Baratheon: No, you don't.
Jaime Lannister: What I'm trying to say, what I'm trying and failing to say...
Myrcella Baratheon: I know what you're trying to say.
Jaime Lannister: No, I'm afraid you don't.
Myrcella Baratheon: I do.
Myrcella Baratheon: I know. About you and mother. I think a part of me always knew. And I'm glad. I'm glad that you're my father.

Fuck prophecy. Fuck fate. Fuck everyone who isn't us.

Daenerys Targaryen: Do not touch me. I am Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen.
Daenerys Targaryen: The First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khalisee of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons.
Khal Moro: You are nobody, the millionth of your name, Queen of Nothing, slave of Khal Moro. Tonight I will lie with you, and if the Great Stallion is kind, you will give me a son. Do you understand?
Daenerys Targaryen: I will not lie with you. And I will bear no children, for you, or anyone else. Not until the sun rises in the west, and sets in the east.

The next time I have an idea like that... punch me in the face!

High Sparrow: You would spill blood in this holy place?
Jaime Lannister: The gods won't mind. They've spilled more blood than all of us combined.

Tyrion Lannister: A wise man once said a true history of the world is a history of great conversations in elegant rooms.
Missandei: Who said this?
Tyrion Lannister: Me, just now.

Slavery is a horror that should be ended at once. War is a horror that should be ended at once.

And here, now, what what great matters do the Great Khals discuss? Which little villages you'll raid, how many girls you'll get to fuck, how many horses you'll demand in tribute. You are small men. None of you are fit to lead the Dothraki. But I am. So I will.

Daenerys Targaryen: Every Khal who ever lived chose three bloodriders to fight beside him and guard his way, But I am not a Khal. I will not choose three blood riders. I choose you all.
Daenerys Targaryen: I will ask more of you than any Khal has ever asked of his khalasar! Will you ride the wooden horses across the black salt sea?
Daenerys Targaryen: Will you kill my enemies in their iron suits and tear down their stone houses?
Daenerys Targaryen: Will you give me the Seven Kingdoms, the gift Khal Drogo promised me before the Mother of Mountains?
Daenerys Targaryen: Are you with me, now and always?

Bronn: You promised me a lordship, and a castle, and a highborn beauty for a wife.
Jaime Lannister: And you'll get all three. "A Lannister always - "
Bronn: Don't say it, don't fucking say it!

One day, after our queen has taken the Seven Kingdoms, I'd like to have my own vineyard. Make my own wine. The Imp's Delight. Only my close friends could drink it.

Not everybody wants to die for someone else's home.

Lancel Lannister: Order your man to step aside or there will be violence.
Cersei Lannister: I choose violence.

Thank you for the armada. Our Queen does love ships.

My reign has just begun.

Tyrion Lannister: You have your armies, you have your ships, you have your dragons. Everything you've ever wanted since you were old enough to want anything, it's all yours for the taking. Are you afraid?
Tyrion Lannister: Good. You're in the great game now. And the great game's terrifying. The only people who aren't afraid of failure are madmen like your father.
Daenerys Targaryen: Do you know what frightens me? I said farewell to a man who loves me. A man I thought I cared for. And I felt nothing. Just impatient to get on with it.
Tyrion Lannister: He wasn't the first to love you and he won't be the last.
Daenerys Targaryen: Well, you have completely failed to console me.
Tyrion Lannister: For what it's worth, I've been a cynic for as long as I can remember. Everyone's always asking me to believe in things. Family, gods, kings, myself. It was often tempting until I saw where belief got people. so I said, "no, thank you," to belief. And yet, here I am. I believe in you. It's embarrassing, really. I'd swear you my sword, but I don't actually own a sword.
Daenerys Targaryen: It's your counsel I need.
Tyrion Lannister: It's yours. Now and always.

They don't fear the Freys, though. The fear the Lannisters. We gave you the Riverlands to hold the Riverlands. If we have to ride north and take them back for you every time you lose them, why do we need you?

I drink because it feels good. I killed my husband because it felt good to be rid of him. I fuck my brother because it feels good to feel him inside me. I lie about fucking my brother because it feels good to keep our son safe from hateful hypocrites. I killed your High Sparrow and all his little sparrows, all his septons, all his septas, all his filthy soldiers, because it felt good to watch them burn.

Tyrion Lannister, I name you Hand of the Queen.

They're not good at anything. I know the ironborn. They're bitter, angry little people. All they know how to do is steal things they can't build or grow themselves.

They're not good at anything. I know the ironborn. They're bitter, angry little people. All they know how to do is steal things they can't build or grow themselves.

Jaime Lannister: Even Lannisters can't survive without allies. Where are our allies now? You saw what happened to Walder Frey and his family.
Cersei Lannister: I heard. How could we ever trust a man like that?
Jaime Lannister: We couldn't. He was a useless old coward, but the Freys supported us. Now they're all dead. Whoever killed them is no friend of ours. We need allies. Stronger, better allies. We can't win this war alone.
Cersei Lannister: You think I listened to father for forty years and learned nothing?

Shall we begin?

Tyrion Lannister: If we turn the dragons loose, tens of thousands will die in the firestorms.
Ellaria Sand: It's called war. If you don't have the stomach for it, scurry back into hiding.
Tyrion Lannister: I know how you wage war. We DON'T poison little girls here. Myrcella was innocent.
Ellaria Sand: She was a Lannister. There are no innocent Lannisters. My greatest regret is that Oberyn died fighting for you.
Daenerys Targaryen: That's enough! Lord Tyrion is Hand of the Queen, you will treat him with respect. I am not here to be Queen of the Ashes.
Olenna Tyrell: That's very nice to hear. Of course, I can't remember a queen who was better loved than my granddaughter. The common people loved her, the Nobles loved her, and what is left of her now? Ashes. Commoners, Nobles, they're all just children, really. They won't obey you unless they fear you.
Daenerys Targaryen: I'm grateful to you, Lady Olenna, for your counsel. I'm grateful to all of you, but you have chosen to follow me. I will not attack King's Landing. WE will not attack King's Landing.

Cersei Lannister: If the Mad King's daughter takes the Iron Throne, she'll destroy the Realm as we know it. Some of you are bannermen of House Tyrell, but House Tyrell is in open rebellion against the crown. With their help, the Mad King's daughter has ferried an army of savages to our shores: mindless Unsullied soldiers who will destroy your castles and your holdfasts; Dothraki heathens, who will burn your villages to the ground, rape and enslave your women and butcher your children without a second thought. This is how Olenna Tyrell rewards centuries of service and loyalty.
Cersei Lannister: You will remember the Mad King. You remember the horrors he inflicted upon his people. His daughter is no different. In Essos, her brutality is already legendary. She crucified hundreds of noble men in Slaver's Bay, and when she grew bored of that, she fed them to her dragons.
Cersei Lannister: It is my solemn duty to protect the people and I will, but I need your help, my lords. We must stand together. All of us, if we hope to stop her.

Daenerys Targaryen: I swear this: If you ever betray me, I'll burn you alive.
Lord Varys: I would expect nothing less from the Mother of Dragons.

I trust the eyes of an honest man more than I trust what everybody knows.

Olenna Tyrell: That was Joffery's sword, wasn't it? Not that he ever used it. What did he call it?
Jaime Lannister: Widow's Wail.
Olenna Tyrell: He really was a cunt, wasn't he?

Tycho Nestoris: We don't make bets. We invest in endeavors we deem likely to be successful.
Cersei Lannister: A fancy way of saying "bet".

Tycho Nestoris: We don't make bets. We invest in endeavors we deem likely to be successful.
Cersei Lannister: A fancy way of saying "bet".

I was born at Dragonstone. Not that I can remember it. We fled before Robert's assassins could find us. Robert was your father's best friend, no? I wonder if your father knew his best friend sent assassins to murder a baby girl in her crib. Not that it matters now, of course. I spent my life in foreign lands. So many men have tried to kill me, I don't remember all their names. I have been sold like a broodmare. I've been chained and betrayed, raped and defiled. Do you know what kept me standing, through all those years in exile? Faith. Not in any god, not in myths and legends. In myself. In Daenerys Targaryen. The world hadn't seen a dragon in centuries, until my children were born. The Dothraki hadn't crossed the sea, any sea. They did for me. I was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms, and I will.

Tyrion Lannister: Flee, you idiot.
Tyrion Lannister: You idiot. You fucking idiot.

Dickon Tarly: Ser Jaime.
Jaime Lannister: Rickon.
Dickon Tarly: Dickon.

Daenerys Targaryen: I will fight for you. I will fight for the North. When you bend the knee.
Jon Snow: My people... won't accept a southern ruler. Not after everything they've suffered.
Daenerys Targaryen: They will if their king does. They chose you to lead them. They chose you to protect them. Isn't their survival more important than your pride?

Davos Seaworth: This is Gendry.
Tyrion Lannister: He'll do.

Jaime Lannister: That was only one of them. She has two more. If she decides to use them, to really use them...
Bronn: You're fucked.
Jaime Lannister: Don't you mean we're fucked?
Bronn: No, I do not. Dragons are where our partnership ends.

Dead men, dragons, and dragon queens... whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it.

Jon Snow: If I don't return, at least you won't have to deal with the King in the North anymore.
Daenerys Targaryen: I've grown used to him.

Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane: Seems every bad idea has some Lannister cunt behind it.
Tyrion Lannister: And some Clegane cunt to help them see it through.

Jaime Lannister: You plotted with Euron Greyjoy without telling me, the commander of your armies?
Cersei Lannister: And you conspired with Tyrion, the man who murdered our father, without telling me, your queen.
Jaime Lannister: I didn't conspire with him.
Cersei Lannister: You met with him in secret without my consent, you planned to promote my enemies' interests. THAT is the definition of conspiracy.
Jaime Lannister: I pledged to ride north. I intend to honor that pledge.
Cersei Lannister: And that will be treason.
Jaime Lannister: Treason?
Cersei Lannister: Disobeying your queen's command, fighting with her enemies, what would you call it?
Jaime Lannister: Doesn't matter what I'd call it.
Cersei Lannister: I told you no one walks away from me.
Jaime Lannister: Are you going to order him to kill me? I'm the only one you have left. Our children are gone, our father is gone; it's just me and you now.
Cersei Lannister: There's one more yet to come.
Jaime Lannister: Give the order, then.
Jaime Lannister: I don't believe you.

Jaime Lannister: This isn't about noble houses. This is about the living and the dead.
Cersei Lannister: And I intend to stay amongst the living.

Jon Snow: Your family hasn't seen its end. You're still here.
Daenerys Targaryen: I can't have children.
Jon Snow: Who told you that?
Daenerys Targaryen: The witch who murdered my husband.
Jon Snow: Has it occurred to you she might not have been a reliable source of information?

Many underestimated you. Most of them are dead now.

If you want a whore, buy one. If you want a Queen - earn her.

Sansa Stark: What do dragons eat, anyway?
Daenerys Targaryen: Whatever they want.

At least Cersei won't get to murder me... I'm sure I'll feel some satisfaction denying her that pleasure while I'm being ripped apart by dead men... Maybe after I'm dead... I'll march down to King's Landing and rip her apart.

In the name of the Warrior, I charge you to be brave. In the name of the Father, I charge you to be just. In the name of the mother, I charge to you to defend the innocent. Rise Ser Brienne of Tarth, Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

Daenerys Targaryen: He never should have trusted Cersei.
Sansa Stark: You never should have either.
Daenerys Targaryen: I thought he knew his sister.
Sansa Stark: Families are complicated.

Sansa Stark: You were the best of them.
Tyrion Lannister: What a terrifying thought.

Jon Snow: The Night King is coming.
Daenerys Targaryen: The dead are already here.

Maybe Cersei will win and kill us all. That will solve our problems.

You know the first thing I learned in the North? I hate the fucking North.

When the war is won, the lion will rule the land, the kraken will rule the sea, and our child will rule over all.

We'll rip her out root and stem.

Tyrion Lannister: If it weren't for you, I never would have survived my childhood.
Jaime Lannister: You would have.
Tyrion Lannister: [shakes his head, on the verge of tears] You were the only one... who didn't treat me like a monster. You were all I had.

Look at me. Nothing else matters. Only us.

Cersei Lannister: You're hurt.
Jaime Lannister: Doesn't matter.

Sometimes duty is the death of love. You are the shield that guards the realm of men.

Daenerys Targaryen: You freed your brother.
Tyrion Lannister: I freed my brother and you slaughtered a city.
