Game of Thrones Quotes
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Cersei: The man who murdered our father, he tore us apart. He's the enemy. I've been telling you for years, you've been defending him for years.
Jaime: This is exactly what they want.
Cersei: And now our father is dead, and that little monster is out there somewhere drawing breath. Did you set him free? Tyrion may be a monster, but at least he killed our father on purpose. You killed him by mistake, a stupidity.
I'd skin you alive for wine.The Hound
I don't choose Tywin Lannister. I don't love Tywin Lannister. I love my brother. I love my lover.Cersei
Stand down. I said my people have bled enough and I meant it.Mance
Mance: One of our giants went into your tunnel and never came out again. Mag the Mighty.
Jon: He's dead. He killed my friend Grenn.
Mance: He was their king. Last of a bloodline that stretches back before the first men.
Jon: Grenn came from a farm.
Mance: Mac and Grenn.
Jon: Grenn and Mac.
