It's one of my favorite scenes from the show, primarily because of exactly what you're referencing. It's a quiet little scene between Littlefinger and Varys in the throne room at King's Landing (first or second season, I think), and it's very understated but the scathing, incisive, world-weary wit of Varys was on full display there.

Maybe the funniest line of the entire series.
I prefer this one.

The Hound: "You want to suck my dick, is that it?"

Tormund: "Dick?"

The Hound: "Cock."

Tormund: "Ah, dick. I like it."

The Hound: "I bet you do."

“I don’t plan on knitting by the fire while men fight for me. I might be small, Lord Glover, and I might be a girl, but I am every bit as much a Northerner as you… and I don’t need your permission to defend the North.” - Lyanna Mormont
