Lancel Lannister: "Order your man to step aside or there will be violence."
Cersei Lannister (after a long pause): "I choose violence."

"You have to keep moving, that's the secret," Tormund says. "Walking's good, fighting's better, fucking's best."

Oberyn Martell: "And what are you? His hired killer?"
Bronn: "Started that way, aye. Now I'm a knight."
Oberyn Martell: "How did that come to pass?"
Bronn: "Killed the right people, I suppose."

This was a great bit:

Meryn Trant: "Nobody threatens the king in the presence of the Kingsguard!"
Tyrion: "I'm not threatening the King, I am instructing my nephew. Bronn, if Ser Meryn speaks again, kill him."
Tyrion [To Meryn]: "That was a threat. See the difference?"

Arya: "Polliver stole my sword and put it right through his neck. He's still got it."
The Hound: "Got what?"
Arya: "My sword, Needle."
The Hound (sarcastic): "'Needle.' Of course you named your sword."
Arya: "Lots of people name their swords."
The Hound: "Lots of cunts."

Maybe the funniest line of the entire series.

"Lots of cunts" is hard to beat, but if anyone can do it, it's Tormund.

Tyrion: "The Lord of Light wants his enemies burned. The Drowned God wants them drowned. Why are all the gods such vicious cunts? Where is the God of Tits and Wine?"
Varys: "In the Summer Isles, they worship a fertility goddess with sixteen teats."
Tyrion: "We should sail there immediately."

Tyrion, expert on drinking and sex:

It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would do it if it were easy.

You can't fuck your way out of everything!

I once bought a honeycomb and a jackass to a brothel. . .

Shaggar: How would you like to die, Tyrion, son of Tywin?
Tyrion: In my own bed, at the age of 80, with a belly full of wine and a girl’s mouth around my cock.

And, of course--- That's what I do: I drink and I know things.

Sansa: I remember when you were born, my lady. You were named for my aunt Lyanna. It's said she was a great beauty. I'm sure you will be too.

Lyanna Mormont: I doubt it. My mother wasn't a great beauty, or any other kind of beauty. She was a great warrior, though. She died fighting for your brother Robb.

Lysa Arryn (to Bronn, after he wins a trial by combat): "You don't fight with honour!"

Bronn: "No..." (pauses, gestures towards his dead opponent): "He did."

Throwing in her face that more than once in the fight after hurting Vardis he paused, giving her the chance to call the fight and offer mercy, and she just made her champion die. And of course how silly it is to expect that in a duel to the death on behalf of someone else you will hew to some old format that'll get you killed.

"It is easy to confuse what is with what ought to be, especially when what is has worked out in your favor." Tyrion

A line so great I assumed it was from the book. I think it is show only and written by whoever wrote that episode.

Brienne: Ladies can't be knights.

Giantsbane: Why not?

Brienne: Tradition.

Giantsbane: (shrugs) Fuck tradition.


This has pretty much always been my attitude toward any sort of historical inertia that gets in the way of progress. I enjoyed seeing it depicted so plainly.

Thoros of Myr: It's not getting any easier, you know.

Beric Dondarrion: I know. Every time I come back . . . I'm a bit less. Pieces of you get chipped away.

It's more expanded in the books, but works well enough in the show to get the point across. Especially with Richard Dormer saying them.

“Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail, and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love – illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is”

Polliver: You don't seem to understand the situation.

Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane: I understand that if any more words come pouring out your cunt mouth, I'm gonna have to eat every fucking chicken in this room.

Polliver: You lived your life for the king. You gonna die for some chickens?

Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane: Someone is.

The pure menace of the hound's presence just carries that scene, he's a man you don't fuck with.

Tormund Giantsbane: I have a beauty waiting for me back in Winterfell. If I ever get back there. Yellow hair, blue eyes, the tallest woman you've ever seen. Almost as tall as you.

Sandor Clegane: Brienne of Tarth.

Tormund Giantsbane: You know her?

Sandor Clegane: You're with Brienne of fucking Tarth?

Tormund Giantsbane: Well, not with her yet. But I see the way she looks at me.

Sandor Clegane: How does she look at you? Like she wants to carve you up and eat your liver?

Tormund Giantsbane: You do know her.

Ygritte: But I'm your woman now, Jon Snow. You're going to be loyal to your woman. The Night's Watch don't care if you live or die. Mance Rayder don't care if I live or die. We're just soldiers in their armies, and there's plenty more to carry on if we go down. But it's you and me that matters to me and you

King: "You got fat!"

Ned Stark: <silently gives king a once-over> <raises eyebrows>

Not really a line, per se, but still one of the funnier moments.

One of may favorite scenes (these go through Missandei)
Dany: "Is it done do they belong to me?"
Slave Master: "It is done. She holds the whip"
(Dany tries forward march and halt)
SM: "Tell the bitch the beast won't come"
Dany: "A dragon is not a slave"
DM "You speak Valerian?"
Dany: "Valerian is my mother tongue*"
(she then goes on to order the Unsullied to kill guards and slavers and free other slaves)
"Dracarys"

Brian
* After stating who she is
(hope this wasn't too long)

Bronn (on why he won't fight The Mountain): "I'd be a bloody fool if he didn't frighten me. He's freakish big and freakish strong, and quicker than you'd expect for a man of that size. Maybe I could take him, dance around until he's so tired from hacking at me he dropped his sword, get him off his feet somehow...but one misstep and I'm dead. Why should I risk it?"

Basically foreshadowed Oberyn's fight exactly.

I do not remember this beach umbrella sized bit of shade but I can see Varys with his Buddha almost smile saying it like he's dropping ancient wisdom in my mind's eye.
