    • Cersei Lannister: Was it ever possible for us? Was there ever a time, ever a moment?
      Robert Baratheon: No. (pauses) Does that make you feel better or worse?
      Cersei Lannister: It doesn't make me feel anything.

    • Eddard Stark: Jon was a man of peace. He was Hand for seventeen years, seventeen good years. Why kill him?
      Lord Varys: He started asking questions.

    • Cersei Lannister: What was she like?
      Robert Baratheon: You've never asked about her, not once. Why not?
      Cersei Lannister: At first, just saying her name, even in private, felt like I was breathing life back into her. I thought that if I didn't talk about her, she'd just fade away for you. When I realized that wasn't going to happen, I refused to ask out of spite. I didn't want to give you the satisfaction of thinking I cared enough to ask. Eventually it became clear that my spite didn't mean anything to you. As far as I could tell, you actually enjoyed it.
      Robert Baratheon: So why now?
      Cersei Lannister: What harm could Lyanna Stark's ghost do to either of us that we haven't done to each other a hundred times over?

    • Bronn: You need a woman. Nothing like a woman after a fight.
      Tyrion Lannister: (both look toward Catelyn Stark) I'm willing if she is.

    • Robert Baratheon: (to Eddard Stark, about the Seven Kingdoms) Do you think it's honor that's keeping the peace? It's fear--fear and blood.
