Popular Game of Thrones Quotes
John: Your grace, you want the wildlings to march in your army?
Stannis: They swear to follow me, I'll pardon them. We take Winterfell, once the North is won I'll declare them citizens of the realm. I'll give them land to live on.
Davos: It's a fair offer. More than fair.
Stannis: I'll offer them their lives and their freedom if Mance kneels before me and swears his loyalty.
John: I don't think that's likely.
Mance: When we first met you were my prisoner and now for our last meeting...
John: This doesn't have to be our last meeting.
Mance: No, but it will be.
John: You know what Stannis wants?
Mance: He wants me to bend the knee and he wants the free folk to fight for him. I'll give him this much, he's bold.
John: Shouldn't a king be bold?
Mance: Oh I respect him. If he gets what he wants I expect he'll be a better ruler than the fools sitting on the Iron Throne the last two hundred years... but I'll never serve him.
Tyrion: You never told me why you set me free.
Varys: Your brother asked me to.
Tyrion: Could've said no.
Varys: Refuse the Kingslayer? A dangerous proposition.
Tyrion: Not as dangerous as releasing me. You risked your life, your position, everything; why? You're not family, you owe me nothing.
Varys: I didn't do it for you. I did it for the seven kingdoms.
Brienne: Lady Sansa, before your mother's death I was her sworn sword. I gave my word I would find you and protect you. I will shield your back and keep your counsel... and give my life for yours if need be. I swear it by the old Gods and the new.
Littlefinger: Please, Lady Brienne no need for such formality. You were Catelyn Stark's sworn sword?
Brienne: I was.
Littlefinger: Strange I knew Catelyn from the time we were children, she never mentioned you.
Brienne: It was after Renly's murder.
Littlefinger: Ah yes.
Cersei: There are only two like it in the world. The one I'm wearing and the one I gave to Myrcella.
Jaime: It's a threat.
Cersei: Of course it's a threat. Our daughter's alone in Dorne surrounded by people who hate our family. It's a threat.
Ellaria: The Sand Snakes are with me. They have the love of their people. They will avenge their father, while you sit here in your chair doing nothing. Oberyn is dead and this Lannister girl skips about the water gardens eating our food, breathing our air. How many of your brothers and sisters do they have to kill? Let me have her. Let me send her to Cersei one finger at a time.
Prince Doran: I loved my brother, and you made him very happy. For that, you will always have a place in my heart. But we do not mutilate little girls for vengeance. Not here, not while I rule.
Ellaria: And how long will that be?
Stannis: I ordered Mance Rayder burnt at the stake. You prevented that order from being carried out. You showed mercy to Mance Rayder. The King's word is law. Perhaps you should ask Ser Davos how much mercy I show to law breakers. Show too much kindness, people won't fear you. They don't fear you, they don't follow you.
Jon: With respect your grace, the free folk will never follow you. No matter what you do. You're the man who burned their King alive.
Margaery: I want to know everything there is to know about King Tommen, first of his name.
Tommen: King Tommen... still sounds strange to me. Does Queen Margaery sound strange to you?
Margaery: So strange... husband.
Tommen: Wife. [both laugh] Sometimes it feels odd. I'm the king. I've married the most beautiful woman in the world. And it's all because my brother died.
Margaery: I understand, but it's not your fault. You know that, don't you? You mustn't feel guilty.
Tommen: I don't feel guilty. That's what's odd.
Terrible things happen to your family and you weep. You sit alone in a darkened room mourning their fates. You've been a bystander to tragedy from the day they executed your father. Stop being a bystander, do you hear me? Stop running. There's no justice in the world. Not unless we make it. You loved your family, avenge them.Littlefinger
Podrick: Lord Tyrion was always very good to me.
Brienne: Yes, all your Lords have been very kind to you. All except me. Sorry you have to squire for such a nasty person.
Podrick: I'm not sorry, you're the best fighter I've ever seen. You beat the hound. I'm proud to be your squire.
Brienne: I'm sorry I'm always snapping at you.
Podrick: If you didn't snap at me I wouldn't learn anything.
Brienne: You want to be a knight Pod?
Brienne: Starting tomorrow we'll train with a sword twice a day. Before we ride in the morning, and after we make camp in the evening. And I'm going to show you how to ride properly.
Podrick: Thank you.
Brienne: I can't knight you, but I can teach you how to fight.
Podrick: I suppose that's more important.
Jon: I'm Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. My place is here.
Stannis: I'm giving you a chance to avenge your family. To take back the castle where you grew up. To rule the North.
Jon: I wish I could fight beside you. Believe me I do, but I swore a sacred vow the Gods would. I pledged my life to the Night's Watch.
Stannis: You're as stubborn as your father, and as honorable.
Jon: I can imagine no higher praise.
Stannis: I didn't mean it as praise. Honor got your father killed, but if your mind's made up I won't try and dissuade you.
Littlefinger: The Lannister name doesn't mean what it once did. Tywin is dead, he kept his house in power through sheer will. Without him, Jaime has one hand and no allies. Tommen is a soft boy, not a king to fear.
Roose: The Queen will be enraged.
Littlefinger: Queen Margaery adores Sansa. Cersei is Queen Mother, a title whose importance wanes with each passing day.
