  • Quotes

    • Jorah Mormont: (to Daenerys) There are times when I look at you and I still can't believe you're real.

    • Jaqen H'ghar: A man pays his debts. A man owes three.
      Arya Stark: Three what?
      Jaqen H'ghar: The Red God takes what is his, my lovely girl. And only death may pay for life. You saved me and the two I was with. You stole three deaths from the Red God. We have to give them back. Speak three names and a man will do the rest. Three lives I will give you, no more, no less. And we're done.
      Arya Stark: I can name anyone? And you'll kill him?
      Jaqen H'ghar: A man has said.

    • Tywin Lannister: And what do they say of Robb Stark in the North?
      Arya Stark: They call him the Young Wolf.
      Tywin Lannister: And?
      Arya Stark: 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 Lannister: And do you believe them?
      Arya Stark: No, my lord. Anyone can be killed.

    • Tyrion Lannister: (about Joffrey Baratheon) The king is a lost cause. It's the rest of us I'm worried about now.

    • Margaery Tyrell: (about Renly) He was very handsome.
      Petyr Baelish: He was, Your Grace.
      Margaery Tyrell: Your Grace? Calling yourself king doesn't make you one, and if Renly wasn't a king, I wasn't a queen.
      Petyr Baelish: Do you want to be a queen?
      Margaery Tyrell: No, I want to be the queen.
