HBO’s Game of Thrones is a beautifully realized epic tale, but the show truly works because of the deft writing. The show’s cutting dialogue drew fans in before the Dragons were even hatched. There’s more power in the sarcasm of Queen Cersei than in a Knight’s sword. Tyrion’s entire character is built around the power of his mind. It is a show that celebrates the great quote.
The good guys as Pajama.ie put together a super-cut of the 100 greatest quotes from season 1-3 of Game of Thrones. Almost all of the major characters appear in this list. It’s a bit surprising to see how different some actors looked during the first season of the show.
Here are a few of our favorite quotes from Game of Thrones.
Jon: All the best swords have names you know.
Arya: Sansa can have her sewing needles. I have a Needle of my own.
Jaime: Tell me, if I stabbed the Mad King is the belly instead of the back, would you admire me more?
Varys: I’ve always hated the bells. They ring for horror, a dead king, a city under siege.
Tyrion: A wedding.
