[[folder:Season 1]]
-->'''Old Nan:''' Oh, my sweet summer child. What do you know about ''fear?'' Fear is for the winter, when the snows fall a hundred feet deep. Fear is for the long night, when the sun hides for years and children are born and live and die all in darkness. That is the time for fear, my little lord, when the White Walkers move through the woods. Thousands of years ago there came a night that lasted a generation. Kings froze to death in their castles, same as the shepherds in their huts. And women smothered their babies rather than see them starve, and ''wept'' and felt the tears freeze on their cheeks. So is this the sort of story that you like?\\
'''Brandon Stark:''' ''(Nods)''\\
'''Old Nan:''' In that darkness, the White Walkers came for the first time. They swept through cities and kingdoms. Riding on their dead horses, hunting with their packs of pale spiders; big as hounds!\\
'''Robb Stark:''' What you telling him now?\\
'''Old Nan:''' Only what the little lord wanted to hear.

-->"Ah, what's the line? The King shits, and, the Hand wipes."\\
--'''Ser Jaime Lannister to Lord Eddard Stark'''

-->"One army - a ''real army''. United behind ''one'' leader with ''one'' purpose. Our purpose died with the Mad King. Now we've got as many armies as there are men with gold in their purse. And everybody wants something different. Your father, wants to own the world. Ned Stark wants to run away and bury his head in the snow. We haven't had a real fight in nine years. Backstabbing doesn't prepare you for a fight and that's all the realm is now - backstabbing and scheming and arse-licking and money-grubbing. Sometimes I don't know what holds it all together."\\
--'''King Robert Baratheon'''

-->"You shall have - a golden crown. That men shall ''tremble'' to behold."\\
--'''Daenerys Targaryen'''

-->'''Lord Eddard Stark:''' Inform Tywin Lannister that he has been summoned to court, to answer for the crimes of his bannerman. He will arrive within the fortnight, or be branded an enemy of the crown and a traitor of the realm.\\
'''Petry Baelish:''' A bold move, and admirable... but is it wise to yank the lion's tail? Tywin Lannister is the richest man in the seven kingdoms. Gold wins wars, not soldiers.\\
'''Ned Stark:''' Then how come Robert is king, and not Tywin Lannister?

-->"Poor Ned Stark. Brave man, terrible judgement."\\
--'''Jaime Lannister'''

-->"It's the family name that lives on. It's ''all'' that lives on. Not your honour, not your personal glory. But ''family''."\\
--'''Lord Tywin Lannister'''

-->'''Brandon Stark:''' They'll be back soon. Robb will free Father, and come back with Mother.\\
'''Rickon Stark:''' ... No they won't.

-->"Tell Lord Tywin that ''winter is coming for him''. Twenty thousand Northerners marching south to find out if he really does ''shit gold''."\\
--'''Robb Stark'''

-->'''Syrio Forel:''' What do we say - to the god of death?\\
'''Ayra Stark:''' Not today.

-->"Anha vazhok khadoes yeroon virsalat. Anha ochomok yeraan kijinosi... Inte vadakhie tihoa ma khewo afilki vi gadimaan. Eyel varthasoe she ilekaan, rikhoya arrekaan vekha vosi yeroon vosma tolorro!" ''{"I will not have your body burned. I will not give you that honour... The beetles will feed on your eyes. The worms will crawl through your lungs, the rain will fall on your rotting skin until nothing is left of you but bones!"}''\\
--'''Khal Drogo, about to kill a guy for insulting his wife.'''

-->'''Varys:''' Sansa pleaded so sweetly for your life, it would be a shame to throw it away. Cersei is no fool. She knows that a tame wolf is more use to her than a dead one.\\
'''Ned:''' You want me to serve the woman who ''murdered'' my King, who ''butchered'' my men, who ''crippled my son?!''\\
'''Varys:''' I want you to ''serve the realm!'' Tell the Queen you will ''confess'' your ''vile treason'', tell your son to ''lay down his sword'' and proclaim Joffrey as the ''true heir''. Cersei knows you as a man of honour. ''If'' you give her the peace she needs and promise to carry her secret to your grave, I ''believe'' she will allow you to take the Black and live out your days on the Wall, with your brother and your bastard son.\\
'''Ned:''' ''(Dark chuckle)'' You think my life is some ''precious thing'' to me? That I would trade my honour for a few more years of... Of ''what''? You grew up with actors. You learned their craft and you learned it well. But I grew up with soldiers... I learned how to die a long time ago.\\
'''Varys:''' ... Pity. Such a pity... What of your daughter's life, my Lord? Is that a precious thing to you?

-->'''Maester Aemon:''' Tell me. Did you ever wonder, why the men of the Night's Watch, take no wives and father no children?\\
'''Jon Snow:''' ... No.\\
'''Aemon:''' So they will not love. ''Love'', is ''the death'' of ''duty''. If the day should ever come when your Lord Father was forced to choose, between honour on the one hand, and those he loves on the other; what would he do?\\
'''Jon:''' He-- He would do whatever was right. No matter what.\\
'''Aemon:''' Then Lord Stark is one man in ten thousand. Most of us are not so strong. What is honour, compared, to a woman's love? What is duty, against the feel of a newborn son in your arms? Or a brother's smile?\\
'''Jon:''' Sam told you.\\
'''Aemon:''' We're all human. Oh, we all do our duty when there's no cost to it. Honour comes ''easy'' then. Yet... Sooner or later, in every man's life, there comes a day when it is ''not'' easy. A day when he must ''choose''.

-->"I am Eddard Stark. Lord of Winterfell and Hand of the King... I come before you to confess my treason... In the sight of gods and men. I betrayed the faith of my King and the trust of my friend Robert. I swore to protect and defend his children. But before his blood was cold, I plotted to murder his son... And seize the throne for myself. Let the High Septon and Baelor the Blessed bear witness to what I say... Joffrey - ''Baratheon'' - is the one true heir to the Iron Throne, by the grace of all the gods, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and - ''protector of the realm.''"\\
--'''The Old Wolf, putting his pups before his honour.'''

-->''(Knocks wine-glass to the floor)'' "There's your peace. Joffrey saw to that when he decided to remove Ned Stark's head. You'll have an easier time of drinking from that cup than you will bringing Robb Stark to the table now. He's ''winning'', in case you hadn't noticed."\\
--'''Tyrion Lannister'''

-->"My Lords. My Lords! Here is what I say to these ''two Kings''. *Spits* Renly Baratheon is ''nothing'' to me! Nor' Stannis 'neither! Why should ''they'' rule over me and mine from some - ''flowery seat in the South?!'' What do ''they'' know of the Wall? Or ''the Wolfswood?'' ... Even their gods are ''wrong!'' ... Why shouldn't we rule ourselves again? It was the dragons we bowed to! And now ''the dragons'' - are ''dead!'' ''There!'' Sits the only King - I mean to bend ''my'' knee to. ''THE KING IN THE NORTH!''"\\
--'''Lord Jon 'The Greatjon' Umber'''

-->"When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When the seas go dry and the mountains blow in the wind - like leaves."\\
--'''Mirri Maz Duur'''

-->"You will be my Khalasar. I see the faces of slaves. I free you. Take off your collars, go if you wish, no-one will stop you. But if you stay... It will be as brothers and sisters. As husbands and wives. Ser Jorah, bind this woman to the pyre. You swore to obey me. I am - ''Daenerys Stormborn''. Of House Targaryen. Of the Blood of Old Valyria, ''I am'', the Dragon's Daughter and I ''swear'' to you, that those who would harm you will die ''screaming''."\\
--'''Daenerys Targaryen'''

[[folder:Season 2]]
-->"I've always served thieves according to their deserts, as you well know, Ser Davos. Joffrey, Renly, Robb Stark, they're all thieves. They'll bend the knee or I'll destroy them."\\
--'''Stannis Baratheon'''

-->"This link is made of Valyrian steel. Only one Maester in a hundred wears it on his chain. It signifies that I have studied the higher mysteries. And all who study these mysteries try their hand at spells. I was no different. I was young - and what boy doesn't secretly wish for hidden powers, to lift him out of his dull life into a special one? But in the end, for all my efforts, I got no-more out of it than a thousand boys before me. Maybe magic ''once'' was a mighty force in the world. But not any more. The dragons are gone. The giants are dead. And the Children of the Forest forgotten..."\\
--'''Maester Luwin'''

-->"Power resides where men ''believe'' it resides. It's a trick. A shadow on the wall. And, a very small man can cast a very large shadow."\\
--'''Lord Varys, The Master of Whisperers'''

-->'''Lord Tywin Lannister:''' And what do they say of Robb Stark in the North?\\
'''Arya Stark:''' ... They call him ''the Young Wolf''.\\
'''Tywin:''' And?\\
'''Arya:''' They say he rides into battle on the back of a giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. They say he can’t be killed.\\
'''Tywin:''' And do you believe them?\\
'''Arya:''' No, my Lord. ''Anyone'' can be killed.\\
''(DeathGlare-off)''\\
'''Tywin:''' ... Fetch that water.

-->'''Ser Jorah Mormont:''' My place is by your side. I shouldn't have left you alone with these people.\\
'''Daenerys Targaryen:''' 'These people?'\\
'''Jorah:''' They are not to be trusted.\\
'''Daenerys:''' And who is to be ''trusted?'' Who ''are'' my people? The Targaryens? I only knew one, my brother, and he would have let a thousand men ''rape me'' if it had gotten him the crown. The Dothraki? Most of them turned on me the day Khal Drogo fell from his horse.\\
'''Jorah:''' Your people are in Westeros.\\
'''Daenerys:''' The people in Westeros don't know I'm alive.\\
'''Jorah:''' They will soon enough.\\
'''Daenerys:''' And then what? They'll pray for my return? They'll wave dragon banners and shout my name? That's what my brother believed and he was a fool.\\
'''Jorah:''' You are not your brother. Trust me, Khaleesi.\\
'''Daenerys:''' There it is. 'Trust me.' And it's you I should trust, Ser Jorah? ''Only you?'' I don't ''need'' trust any longer. I don't want it and I don't have room for it.\\
'''Jorah:''' You are too young to be so -\\
'''Daenerys:''' - And ''you'' are too familiar.

-->"Get back! I want his head! Any man who stands between a father and his vengeance, ''asks for death!''"\\
--'''Lord Rickard Karstark'''

-->"An upstart and a charlatan? Empires have been built by less. Those on the margins often come to control the centre. And those in the centre make room for them. Willingly or otherwise..."\\
--'''Xaro Xhoan Daxos'''

-->'''Yara Greyjoy:''' Theon, you're my blood. We both loved our mother, we've both - ''endured'' our father. Come home with me, don't die here alone.\\
'''Theon Greyjoy:''' I don't intend to die!\\
'''Yara:''' ... You were a terrible baby, do you know that? Bawling all the time, never sleeping. And one night you just wouldn't shut up; ''screaming'' like a dying pig. I walked over to your crib, I looked down at you. I wanted to ''strangle'' you... And you looked up at me and you stopped crying. You smiled at me... Don't die so far from the sea.

-->"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 shall know the debt is paid."\\
--'''Tyrion Lannister, to Queen Cersei Lannister'''

-->'''Ser Jorah Mormont:''' Careful, Khaleesi. Xaro owns this city and the warlocks have a thousand eyes watching for you. I've found one, a ship with a good captain. She leaves for Astapor tomorrow.\\
'''Daenerys Targaryen:''' Astapor?\\
'''Jorah:''' We cannot stay here.\\
'''Daenerys:''' They ''have my dragons'', a mother does not ''flee'' without her children.\\
'''Jorah:''' They're ''not your children''... I know they call you the Mother of Dragons and I know you ''love them'' but you didn't grow them in your womb, they didn't suckle at your breast, they are ''dragons'', Khaleesi. And if we stay in Qarth we'll die.\\
'''Daenerys:''' You should sail to Astapor, I'm sure you'll be ''safe'' there!\\
'''Jorah:''' ... You know - I would ''die'' for you. I will ''never'' abandon you. I'm sworn to protect you, to serve.\\
'''Daenerys:''' Then serve me. If my dragons are in the House of the Undying then ''take'' me there.\\
'''Jorah:''' That's what the Warlock ''wants''. He told you so ''himself''! If you enter that place you will never leave again. His magic is ''strong'' -\\
'''Daenerys:''' And what of ''my magic''? You saw me step into the fire, you watched the witch burn. What did the flames do to me, do you remember?\\
'''Jorah:''' ... Until my ''last breath'' I will remember. After I have forgotten my ''mother's face''.\\
'''Daenerys:''' They ''are'' my children... And they are the only children, I will ''ever have''... Take me to them...

-->'''Catelyn Stark:''' You are no knight. You have forsaken every vow you ever took.\\
'''Jaime Lannister:''' So many vows. They make you swear and swear. ''Defend the King. Obey the King. Obey your father. Protect the innocent. Defend the weak.'' But what if your father ''despises'' the King? What if the King ''massacres'' the innocent? It's too much. No matter what you do, you're forsaking one vow or another.

-->"Fuck the Kingsguard. Fuck the city. ''Fuck the king''."\\
--'''Sandor "The Hound" Clegane, giving his resignation to King Joffrey.'''

-->"... I'll lead the attack ... I'll lead the attack! Pod, my helmet. Ser Mandon, you will bear the king's banner. Men, form up. Men... Men! They say I'm half a man. But what does that make the lot of you? There's another way out, I'm going to show you. We'll come out behind them and fuck them in their arses. Don't fight for your King and don't fight for his Kingdoms. Don't fight for honour. 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'' houses he burns, ''your'' gold he steals, ''your'' women he will rape. Those are brave men knocking at our door... ''Let's go kill them''!"\\
--'''Tyrion Lannister'''

-->'''Cersei Lannister:''' Shh... Calm, my sweet.\\
'''Tommen Lannister:''' They're still fighting...\\
'''Cersei:''' No-one's going to hurt you. I'll tell you a story. You know the one about the mother lion and her cub, they lived in the woods?\\
'''Tommen:''' The King's Wood?\\
'''Cersei:''' Yes, my love. In the King's Wood, there lived a mother and her cub. She loved him very much. But there were other things that lived in the woods, evil things.\\
'''Tommen:''' Like what?\\
'''Cersei:''' ... Like stags.\\
'''Tommen:''' Stags aren't evil, they only eat grass.\\
'''Cersei:''' ... ''Wolves''. He could hear them howling in the night. The little cub was frightened. His mother said: you are a lion, my son, you ''mustn't'' be afraid. For one day ''all'' the beasts will bow to you. You will be ''King''. All the stags will bow, all the wolves will bow. The bears in the North and the foxes of the South. All the birds in the sky and the beasts in the sea. They will all come to you, little lion. To rest a crown upon your head. The cub said: will I be strong and fierce like my father? Yes, said his mother. You will be strong and fierce ''just'' like your father. I will keep you safe, my love. I promise you.

-->"You hear that? That's the mating call of the Northmen. They want to fuck us! Well I haven't had a good fuck in weeks. I'm ready for one! They say every Ironborn man is worth a dozen from the mainland. Do you think they're right? We die today, brothers. We die bleeding from a hundred wounds, with arrows in our necks and spears in our guts - but our war cries will echo through eternity. They will sing about the Battle of Winterfell until the Iron Islands have slipped beneath the waves. Every man, woman and child will know who we were and how long we stood! Aggar and Gelmar! Wex and Urzen! Stig and Black Lorren! Ironborn warriors will cry out our names as they leap onto the shores of Seagard and Faircastle! Mothers will name their sons for ''us!'' Girls will think of ''us'' with their lovers ''inside them!'' And whoever kills that ''[[MostAnnoyingSound fucking hornblower]]'' will stand in bronze above the shores of Pyke!! ''What is dead may never die!!!'' AHHHHH!!!!"\\

-->"We need to get back to The Wall. It's a long march, we know what's out there. But we ''have'' to make it! We ''have'' to warn them! Or before winter's end, everyone you've ever known will be ''dead!''"\\

-->'''Ser Jorah Mormont:''' If you want to sit on the throne your ancestors built you must ''win it''. That will mean blood on your hands before the thing is done.\\
'''Daenerys Targaryen:''' The blood of my ''enemies''. Not of innocents.\\
'''Jorah:''' How many wars have you fought in, Ser Barristan?\\
'''Ser Barristan Selmy:''' Three.\\
'''Jorah:''' Have you ever seen a war where innocents didn't die by the thousands?\\
'''Barristan:''' ... ''(Shakes head)''\\
'''Jorah:''' I was in King's Landing after the sack, Khaleesi. You know what I saw? ''Butchery''. Babies, children, old men. More women raped than you could count. ''There's a beast in every man and it stirs when you put a sword in his hand'' but the Unsullied are not men. They do not rape, they do not put cities to the sword unless they're ''ordered'' to do so. If you buy them--\\
'''Barristan:''' ''(Scoffs)''\\
'''Jorah:''' the only men they'll kill are the ones you want dead.\\
'''Daenerys:''' Do you disagree, Ser Barristan?\\
'''Barristan:''' When your brother, Rhaegar, led his army into battle at the Trident. Men died for him because they ''believed'' in him and because they loved him. Not because they'd been bought at the slaver's auction. I fought beside the ''Last Dragon'' on that day, your Grace. I ''bled'' beside him.\\
'''Jorah:''' Rhaegar fought valiantly. Rhaegar fought nobly. And Rhaegar ''died''.\\
'''Daenerys:''' Did you know him well, Ser Barristan?\\
'''Barristan:''' I did, your Grace. The finest man I ever met.\\
'''Daenerys:''' I wish I had known him. But he was ''not'' the ''Last Dragon''.

-->'''Catelyn Stark:''' I prayed for my son Bran, to survive his fall... Many years before that, one of the boys came down with the pox. Maester Luwin said that if he made it through the night; he'd live. But it would be a very long night. So I sat with him all through the darkness. Listened to his ragged little breaths, his coughing, his whimpering.\\
'''Talisa Maegyr:''' Which boy?\\
'''Catelyn:''' ... Jon Snow ... When my husband brought that baby home from the war I couldn't ''bear'' to look at him. I didn't want to see those brown stranger's eyes staring up at me. So I prayed to the gods, take him away. Make him die... He got the pox. And ''I knew'' I was the ''worst woman who ever lived.'' A ''murderer''. I'd condemned this poor, innocent child to a horrible death - all because I was ''jealous of his mother''. A woman he didn't even know. So I prayed to all seven gods, ''let the boy live''. Let him live - and ''I'll love him''. I'll be a mother to him. I'll beg my husband to give him a true name, to call him ''Stark'' and be done with it, to make him one of us.\\
'''Talisa:''' And he lived?\\
'''Catelyn:''' And he lived... But I ''couldn't keep my promise''. And everything that's happened since then... All this ''horror'' that's come to my family... It's all because ''I couldn't love a motherless child...''

-->"I've always been a terrible priest. Drank too much rum... Fucked all the whores in King's Landing... It's a terrible thing to say, but, by the time I came to Westeros, I didn't believe in our Lord. I'd decided that He, that all the gods, were stories we told the children to make them behave. So I wore the robes and - every now and then I'd recite the prayers, it was just for show. A spectacle for the locals... Until the Mountain drove a lance through this one's heart. I knelt beside his cold body and said the old words. Not because I believed in them, but... He was my friend. And he was dead. And they were the only words I knew. And for the first time in my life, the Lord replied. Beric's eyes opened - and I knew the truth. ''Our god is the one true God''. And ''all men must serve Him''."\\

-->'''Varys:''' I did what I did for the good of the realm.\\
'''Petyr Bealish:''' ''The realm.'' Do you know what the realm is? It's the thousand blades of Aegon's enemies. A story we agree to tell each other ''over and over'' till we forget that it's ''a lie''.\\
'''Varys:''' But what do we have left once we abandon the lie? Chaos. A gaping pit waiting to swallow us all.\\
'''Petyr:''' ''Chaos'' isn't a pit. Chaos is ''a ladder.'' Many try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. ''Illusions''. Only the ladder is real. ''The climb'' is all there is.

'''Margaery Tyrell:''' Gone.\\
'''Cersei:''' ''... Gone.'' A ''gentle'' word. Why not say - ''slaughtered''? Every man, woman, and child - put to the sword. I remember seeing their bodies hanging high above the gates of Casterly Rock. My father let them rot up there all summer. It was a long summer.

''(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.\\

'''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.''

-->"They ''skinned'' our countrymen, and they ''mutilated'' my brother! Your prince. ''Your!'' ''Prince!'' ''Everything'' they've ''done'' to him, they've ''also'' done to ''you!'' As long as they can hurt our prince with ''impunity,'' the word '' 'ironborn' '' means ''NOTHING''!"\\
--'''Yara Greyjoy'''

-->'''Tyrion Lannister:''' 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!'' ''(to Cersei)'' Watching your vicious bastard die gave me ''more'' relief ''THAN A THOUSAND LYING WHORES!'' ''(to the court)'' 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:''' 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.'' [[CallBack I demand a trial by combat.]]

--'''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'' and ''die'' 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'''.

-->'''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:''' 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:''' [[SelectiveObliviousness No. No, no, no, no, no.]]\\
'''Cersei:''' ''(in delight)'' Your legacy is a lie!\\
'''Tywin:''' I don't believe you.\\
'''Cersei:''' ... Yes you do.
