We've had vicious kings and we've had idiot kings, but I don't know if we've ever been cursed with a vicious idiot for a king.
— Power is a curious thing, my lord. Are you fond of riddles?
— Why, am I about to hear one?
— Three great men sit in a room. A king, a priest and a rich man. Between them stands a common sellsword. Each great man bids the sellsword kill the other two. Who lives, who dies?
— Depends on the sellsword.
— Does it? He has neither crown nor gold nor favor with the gods.
— He has a sword, the power of life and death.
— But if it's swordsmen who rule, why do we pretend kings hold all the power? When Ned Stark lost his head, who was truly responsible? Joffrey? The executioner? Or something else?
— I've decided I don't like riddles.

— I've always hated the bells. They ring for horror. A dead king, a city under siege.
— A wedding.
I'm no ordinary woman. My dreams come true.
— This will be my last war. Win or lose.
— Have you ever lost before?
— Do you think l'd be in my position if I had lost a war?
— They attacked me!
— They threw a cow pie at you, so you decided to kill them all? They're starving, you fool. All because of a war you started.
— You're talking to a king!
— And now l've struck a king. Did my hand fall from my wrist?
— Stannis has more infantry, more ships, more horses. What do we have?
— There's that mind of yours you keep going on about.
— Well, I've never actually been able to kill people with it.
— Good thing. I'd be out of a job.
— You know, you shouldn't insult people that are bigger than you.
— Then I wouldn't get to insult anyone.
