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

"Lannister. Baratheon. Stark. Tyrell. They're all just spokes on a wheel. This one's on top, then that's ones on top and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground. I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel."

- Daenerys Targaryen

"The Lord of Light wants his enemies burned. The Drowned God wants them drowned. Why are all the gods such vicious cunts? Where's the God of Tits and Wine?"

- Tyrion Lannister

"The common people pray for rain, healthy children, and a summer that never ends. It is no matter to them if the high lords play their game of thrones, so long as they are left in peace. They never are."

- Jorah Mormont

"These bad people are what I'm good at. Out talking them. Out thinking them."

- Tyrion Lannister

The Roose Is Loose!

Robb takes a liking to the Volantene Florence Nightingale named Talisa.

We met the Tickler and Roose Bolton whose sigil is the Flayed Man. We met Xaro Xhoan Daxos, one of the 13 of Qarth, (the actor played Tank as in think tank in RocknRolla.). We got a look at Qarth and Harrenhal, which didn't move in the opening credits.

At the top of the hour, Lord Roose Bolton cautions Robb Stark that he can't march his army down the high road. And the episode ends with a similar homily: King Stannis tells his most faithful servant, Ser Davos Seaworth the Onion Knight, that "cleaner ways don't win wars."
Tyrion to Meryn Trant: "I'm not threatening the King. I'm educating my nephew. Bronn, the next time Ser Meryn speaks, kill him. (pregnant pause) That was a threat. See the difference?"

Bronn to Tyrion: "There's no cure for being a cunt."

Tyrion to himself: "Lady Stark, you may survive us yet."
