A Few Powerful Phrases From WESTEROS – GAME OF THRONES

We all know that a Lannister always pays his debts and a Jon who knows nothing but there are a number of phrases and quotes to be inspired from in GAME OF THRONES

 

 

THE THINGS I DO FOR LOVE.

Season 1, Episode 1

Jaime Lannister pushes Bran out of a window after Bran catches him in compromising position with Cersei. It’s an evil move, but Jaime had his reasons. The “things I do for love” line was important to him as far as justifying the attempted murder: “In his mind, Cersei is everything, and his life has been dictated by her and how he could be close to her. He became a member of the Kings Guard at a very early age against his father’s wishes. It was because he wanted to be close to Cersei.”

‘IT’S THE FAMILY NAME THAT LIVES ON. IT’S ALL THAT LIVES ON.’

Season 1, Episode 7

Tywin’s first priority is his family’s legacy. Like the man’s man that he is, Tywin is butchering a beast as he scolds Jaime for not making the most of his talents. “Your mother’s dead, before long I’ll be dead, and you … and your brother and your sister and all of her children,” Tywin says. “All of us dead, all of us rotting in the ground. It’s the family name that lives on. It’s all that lives on. Not your honor, not your personal glory — family.”

‘WHEN YOU PLAY THE GAME OF THRONES, YOU WIN OR YOU DIE.’

Season 1, Episode 7

It’s a risky move using dialogue to reference a TV show or book’s name, but Cersei’s remarks to Eddard Stark are quite apt. Ned is concerned with honor during this discussion — in which he reveals he knows of Cersei’s incest with Jaime, while the Queen understands it’s all a game. She ends the season with her life intact, while Ned ends the season with his head on a spike.

‘I LEARNED HOW TO DIE A LONG TIME AGO.’

Season 1, Episode 9

Lord Varys tries to convinced Eddard — injured and imprisoned — to “confess” to being a traitor, saying the Queen will allow Lord Stark to take the black. As Ned chooses the honorable path, initially rejecting the offer: “You think my life is some precious thing to me? That I would trade my honor for a few more years of … of what? You grew up with actors; you learned their craft and you learned it well. But I grew up with soldiers. I learned how to die a long time ago.” Varys finally convinces Eddard to make a false confession after insinuating that the Stark girls may be endangered if he doesn’t do so.

‘THE MAD KING DID AS HE LIKED. HAS YOUR UNCLE JAIME EVER TOLD YOU WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM?’

Season 2, Episode 4

Tyrion utters this line after stopping Joffrey from supervising the beating of Sansa Stark. After the King’s man Meryn Trant says, “No one threatens His Grace,” Tyrion insists he wasn’t threatening the king. “I am educating my nephew. Bronn, the next time Ser Meryn speaks, kill him. That was a threat. See the difference?”

‘YOUR JOY WILL TURN TO ASHES IN YOUR MOUTH.’

Season 2, Episode 8

A Lannister always pays his debts, and Tyrion is no different. After Cersei captures and beats Ros (thinking she is Shae), Tyrion vows revenge. The line comes back in season four, with Cersei repeating the words back to damn Tyrion. Here’s the original: “I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.”

Let’s go kill them!” That moment concluded that Tyrion is indeed the key character of Seven Kingdoms

But neither gods nor men will ever compel me to let you turn Casterly Rock into your whorehouse.”

‘YOU’RE NO SON OF MINE.’

Season 4, Episode 10

The last words of Tywin Lannister are as cold as one would expect from arguably the most powerful man in Westeros. Confronted by his son Tyrion on a late-night trip to the privy, Tywin is all calm confidence, despite his lack of pants. His patronizing arrogance ultimately proves his undoing, however, when Tyrion makes good on his threats to put a crossbow bolt into his father’s belly if he calls Shae a ‘”whore” one more time. The King’s Hand does manage to get off one more cruel jibe before he goes, though, and we wouldn’t expect anything less from Papa Lannister.

‘THIS IS NOT THE DAY I DIE.’

Season 4, Episode 7

Game of Thrones’ list of shocking character deaths is long and bloody, but the demise of Oberyn Martell may be at the top, not only because of its brutality but the sheer unexpected nature of his departure. The Red Viper stood in as Tyrion Lannister’s champion in a battle by combat against the muscle-bound behemoth Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane. The swaggering Prince Oberyn was all bravado before the fight, reassuring both Tyrion and his paramour Ellaria Sand that he would prevail, only to be crushed by his own hubris and the massive hands of an angry Goliath.

Season 4, Episode 6

‘THE GOOD LORDS ARE DEAD, AND THE REST ARE MONSTERS.’

Season 5, Episode 1

Season 5, Episode 1

After committing patricide and traveling across the Narrow Sea hidden in a box, Tyrion finally arrived in Pentos, in desperate need of a drink. Two glasses of wine later, and the contents of the Imp’s stomach are on the floor. It’s a bad look, especially as his traveling companion Varys finally reveals his intention to join forces with House Targaryen and help topple Tyrion’s wicked family.

‘HE ALWAYS COMES BACK!’

Season 5, Episode 8

Looking for foreshadowing about Jon Snow’s eventual resurrection? Look no further than this line of dialogue from Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) in the historic “Hardhome” episode of season five.

Not every Game of Thrones character enjoys famous dying words. But Stannis Baratheon isn’t just any character, either.

It’s an inglorious end for a man who cared little about glory, and so much about duty.

“Please don’t eat the help!”

(Episode 602, “Home”)

It’s a throwaway line for any other actor, but for Peter Dinklage, it’s rich with humor, sincerity, and desperation. Tyrion Lannister does his best animal wrangler routine as he unshackles Viserion and Rhaegal, regaling them with tales of dragon worship from his childhood. It’s a touching moment, and one of Dinklage’s standout performances in the series — no small feat, given the body of work.

“The past is already written. The ink is dry.”

(Episode 603, “Oathbreaker”)

With nine words, the Three-Eyed Raven outlines the rules of time travel on Game of Thrones. If this were Lost, it would boil down to three words: “Whatever happened, happened.” The sentence serves as both a point of fact as well as a stern warning, advising Bran not to wander too far down the rabbit hole on his own.

“I fought. I lost. Now I rest. But you, Lord Snow… you’ll be fighting their battles forever.”

(Episode 603, “Oathbreaker”)

“The things we do for love.”

(Episode 608, “No One”)

The final words of the series premiere echo throughout the story of Jaime Lannister , first uttered when he crippled Bran at Winterfell, then repeated in season six as he coached Edmure Tully  into surrendering Riverrun. It’s a testament to how much has changed across six seasons, and at the same time, how much has stayed exactly the same.

“Thousands of men don’t need to die. Only one of us.”

(Episode 609, “Battle of the Bastards”)

Jon Snow gives Ramsay one last chance to back away from battle, echoing the words of his own father Eddard as he challenges the Bastard of Bolton to single combat. It’s essentially an empty gesture, as everyone knows Ramsay won’t accept the invitation. Still, it’s a testament to just how much Jon leans on the old ways of House Stark to guide him forward.

“You’re going to die tomorrow, Lord Bolton. Sleep well.”

(Episode 609, “Battle of the Bastards”)

Sansa Stark’s journey from aspiring fairy tale princess to hardened survivor has been a brutal one, with several awful men and women pushing her further along that path. But by the start of “Battle of the Bastards,” Sansa no longer cowers in fear at the sight of her abusers. She doesn’t make empty threats at them, either. She makes promises, and she delivers, feeding her enemies to the dogs as soon as the time is right.

“You can’t kill me. I’m part of you now.”

(Episode 609, “Battle of the Bastards”)

For his final act, Ramsay Bolton plays the part of Hannibal Lecter, gloating through bloody lips and behind iron bars. Even in the face of evisceration at the maws of his starving hounds, Ramsay exits Game of Thrones by taunting and tormenting his way into the grave, promising that his ghost will linger on within Sansa long after his death.
