    • Petyr Baelish: Only by admitting what we are can we get what we want.
      Ros: And what do you want?
      Petyr Baelish: Oh, everything my dear...everything there is.

    • Cersei Lannister: (to Ned Stark) Jaime and I are more than brother and sister. We shared a womb. We came into this world together. We belong together.

    • Tywin Lannister: The lion doesn't concern himself with the opinions of the sheep.

    • Eddard Stark: (about Robert Baratheon) You've always hated him.
      Cersei Lannister: Hated him? I worshiped him. Every girl in the Seven Kingdoms dreamed of him, but he was mine by oath. And when I finally saw him on our wedding day in the Sept of Baelor, lean and fierce and black-bearded, it was the happiest moment of my life. Then that night he crawled on top of me, stinking of wine and he did what he did, what little he could do, and whispered in my ear, "Lyanna". Your sister was a corpse and I was a living girl, and he loved her more than me.

    • Jon Snow: recited together with Samwell Tarly Hear my words and bear witness to my vow. 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 realm of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.
