Episode Quotes
Cersei Lannister: You want to make things better for Sansa? Give her a child.
Tyrion Lannister: So you can tell father that it was you who finally talked me into it?
Cersei Lannister: So she can have some happiness in her life.
Tyrion Lannister: You have children. How happy would you say you are?
Cersei Lannister: Not very. But if it weren't for my children, I'd have thrown myself from the highest window in the Red Keep. They're the reason I'm alive.
Tyrion Lannister: Even Joffrey?
Cersei Lannister: Even Joffrey. He was all I had once, before Myrcella was born. I used to spend hours looking at him. His wisps of hair. His tiny hands and feet. He was such a jolly little fellow. You always hear the terrible ones were terrible babies. "We should have known. Even then, we should have known." It's nonsense. Whenever he was with me, he was happy. And no one can take that away from me. Not even Joffrey. How it feels to have someone. Someone of your own.

Davos Seaworth: I didn't want to be a lord. I nearly didn't accept.
Gendry: Why did you?
Davos Seaworth: I did it for my son. I didn't want him to step over a river of shit every time he stepped through his front door. I wanted him to have a better life.
Gendry: Does he?
Davos Seaworth: He's dead.
Gendry: How'd he die?
Davos Seaworth: Following me.

Tyrion Lannister: The Northerners will never forget.
Tywin Lannister: Good. Let them remember what happens when they march on the South.

Sansa Stark: We could sheep shift Lord Desmond's bed. You cut a little hole in his mattress and you stuff sheep dung inside. Then you sew up the hole and make his bed again. His room will stink, but he won't know where it's coming from.
Tyrion Lannister: Lady Sansa!
Sansa Stark: My sister used to do that when she was angry with me. And she was always angry with me.
Tyrion Lannister: Why sheep shift?
Sansa Stark: That's the vulgar word for dung.
Tyrion Lannister: My lady...
Sansa Stark: Well, you asked me.

Theon Greyjoy: Kill me...
Ramsay Snow: Say what?
Theon Greyjoy: Kill me...
Ramsay Snow: A little louder.
Theon Greyjoy: KILL ME!
Ramsay Snow: You're no good to me dead. We need you.

Tyrion Lannister: Keep up!
Podrick Payne: I don't think I can, my lord.
Tyrion Lannister: It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would do it if it were easy.

Joffrey Baratheon: Write back to Lord Frey. Thank him for his service and command him to send Robb Stark's head. I'm going to serve it to Sansa at my wedding feast.
Varys: Your Grace, Lady Sansa is your aunt by marriage.
Cersei Lannister: A joke. Joffrey did not mean it.
Joffrey Baratheon: Yes, I did. I'm going to have it served to Sansa at my wedding feast.
Tyrion Lannister: No, she is no longer yours to torment.
Joffrey Baratheon: Everyone is mine to torment. You do well to remember that, you little monster.
Tyrion Lannister: Oh, I'm a monster? Perhaps you should speak to me more softly then. Monsters are dangerous, and just now, kings are dying like flies.

Episode Goofs
Factual Error:

Sam tells Bran "You're Jon's brother! The one who fell from the window!". Except Jaime and Cersei, no one knows where Bran fell from. It was assumed he fell while climbing on the wall.

Factual Error:

Samwell Tarly says that the Wall is 500 miles long, when in reality it is 300 miles long.


When Tyrion is drinking wine and talking to Cersei, the way he holds his glass of wine changes several times between shots.
