"Do you know why all the world hates a Lannister? You think your gold and your - lions and your gold lions
make you better than everyone
... May I tell you a secret? You're not
a golden lion. You're just a pink little man who's far too slow on the draw..."
"I lie awake - all night, staring at the canopy, thinking about how they died... Do you know what they did to my brother? How they sewed his direwolf's head onto his body.
And my mother, they say they cut her throat to the bone
and threw her body in the river."
—Sansa Lannister nee Stark
You're a talker. Listening to talkers makes me thirsty. (downs his former ally's tankard in one, smacks his lips)
hungry. Think I'll take two
chickens. Polliver: (checks to make sure his buddies have his back)
You don't seem to understand the situation. The Hound:
I understand that if any more words come pouring out your cunt mouth
... I'm going to have to eat every
fucking chicken in this room. Polliver:
You lived your life for the king. You're gonna die for some chickens? The Hound:
Melisandre of Asshai:
What do you know of the gods? Princess Shireen Baratheon:
I read 'The Seven-pointed Star.' Melisandre:
Lies and fables. Septons speak of seven gods
, there are but two
. A God of light and love and joy. And a God of darkness, evil and fear; eternally at war. Shireen:
Then - there are no Seven Heavens? No Seven Hells? Melisandre:
There is only one Hell, Princess. The one we live in now
"May you and my daughter Margaery drink deep, and live long."
—Lord Mace Tyrell to King Joffrey Baratheon
"But if that's not enough, then consider this. If the Night's Watch are truly brothers, then Lord Commander Mormont was our father. He lived and died for the Watch and he was betrayed by his own men
, stabbed in the back by cowards
! All we can give him now - is justice
"I will do what Queens do. I will rule.
The Onion Knight:
Er, m'lord. Tycho Nestoris:
I'm not a Lord, 'Ser' Davos Seaworth. You would not be either, here. In Bravos, thieves
are not rewarded with titles. Davos:
Well strictly speakin' I didn't do the thieven'. That would be the pirates
. I just moved what they stole from one place to another. (Removes glove) This
was the payment that was demanded by King Stannis as payment for my crimes, I consider it an honest accountin'. He's an honest man
and he's your best chance to get back the money you've sunk into Westeros. Which is a lot
, I imagine. Wars are expensive. Tycho:
The war is over. Davos:
As long as Stannis lives, the war is not
over. Who's the real
power in King's Landing? Tycho:
Ser Davos... Davos:
No, humor me. Tycho:
... Tywin Lannister. Davos:
is Tywin Lannister? Tycho:
Sixty seven. Davos:
Sixty seven. And when he dies, who's in command? A half-grown boy, the product of incest? Cersei Lannister, a queen whose people despise her? Jaime Lannister, a man best known for killing the king he was sworn to protect? When Tywin's gone, who do you back? Tycho:
That is a problem for another time. Davos:
Begging your pardon, I think it's a problem for now. There's only one reliable leader left
in Westeros. Stannis.
He's got the birthright. He's in his prime. He's a tried and tested battle commander. And he doesn't just talk about paying people back, he does it.
our countrymen, and they mutilated
my brother! Your Prince. Your! Prince! Everything
to him, they've also
done to you!
As long as they can hurt our Prince with impunity,
the word 'Ironborn' means NOTHING!
Father, I wish to confess. I wish...to confess. Lord Tywin Lannister:
You wish to confess? Tyrion:
... I saved you. I saved this city - and all your worthless lives!
I should have let Stannis kill you all! Tywin:
Tyrion! Do you wish to confess? Tyrion:
Yes, father. I'm guilty. Guilty
. Is that what you want to hear? Tywin:
You admit you poisoned the king? Tyrion:
No, of that I'm innocent. I'm guilty of a far more monstrous crime. I am guilty - of being a Dwarf! Tywin:
You are not on trial for being a dwarf. Tyrion:
Oh, yes I am! I have been on trial for that, my entire life! Tywin:
Have you nothing to say in your defense?! Tyrion:
Nothing but this—I did not do
it. 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!
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:
Ser Meryn! Ser Meryn! Escort the prisoner back to his cell! Tyrion:
I will not
give my life for Joffrey'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.

her! You MURDERED
her! ... YOU KILLED HER CHILDREN!"
—Oberyn Martell, as he cuts the Mountain's Achilles tendons and impales the giant through the stomach.
"Elia Martell. I killed her children. THEN
I RAPED HER! THEN I SMASHED HER HEAD, IN LIKE THIS!
—Gregor Clegane, as he gouges out the Red Viper's eyes and compresses his skull until it bursts asunder.
"Night gathers and now my watch begins! It shall not end until my death
! I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children! I shall wear no crowns!
And win no glory!
I shall live
at my post! I am the sword in the darkness
! I am the watcher on the walls
! I am the shield that guards the realms of men
! I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night
and all the nights to come!!!
—Grenn and the five, reciting their oaths as they make a stand against the Giant's King, Mag The Mighty
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:
I'll tell everyone the truth. Tywin:
What 'truth' would that be? Cersei:
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 twenty years. One real look at your own children and you would have known... Tywin:
Known what...? Cersei:
Everything they say is true
, about Jamie and me - Tywin: No. No, no, no, no, no. Cersei: (in delight)
Your legacy is a lie! Tywin:
I don't believe you. Cersei:
... Yes you do.
"They came to us from White Harbor and Barrowton, from Fairmarket and King's Landing. From north and south, from east and west. They died protecting men, women, and children who will never know their names. It is for us to remember our brothers. We shall never see their like again."
—Maester Aemon, honoring the fallen brothers who died in defending Castle Black.
