16. I Want to be The Queen – Margaery Tyrell
The desire of being a king or queen in the lands of Westeros runs very high. The power it brings is intoxicating and Margaery certainly makes it clear when she expresses her desire to be not just a queen but The Queen.
15. Any Man Who must say ‘I am the King’ is no True King – Tywin Lannister
Let’s be honest – we all hated Joffrey as the king. He was obnoxious, coward, self-centered and his actions were despicable. Tywin rightly so teaches him a lesson when Joffrey claims himself as ‘The King’.
14. A Lion Doesn’t Concern itself with the Opinion of a Sheep – Tywin Lannister
Tywin Lannister is the head of the Lannister family. He never shies away in giving his words of wisdom to his descendant, be it Cersei or Joffrey or even Jaime.
13. If You Think This has a Happy Ending, You haven’t been Paying Attention – Ramsay Bolton
Ramsay is easily the top 3 most hated characters of the show. He tortures Theon to his very core until he haplessly submits to him and eventually becomes Reek, a man of almost no identity. There wasn’t going to be a happy ending for Theon any sooner from Ramsay’s wrath.
12. I am Guilty of Being a Dwarf – Tyrion Lannister
The court trial of Tyrion is one of the best scenes of the entire series where he is put on trial for murdering King Joffrey at his wedding feast but he soon realizes that the whole trial is mere a facade and the judges have already made their decision.
11. There is Only One God, and His Name is Death. And there is Only One Thing We Say to Death: ‘Not Today’ – Syrio Forel
While watching GOT, fans come across numbers of gods – the Faith of the Seven of Westeros, the Old Gods of the Forest of the North, the Drowned God and the Storm God of the Iron Islands, R’hllor, the Lord of Light, Mother Rhoyne of Dorne. But there is only one god and his name is Death.
10. When You Play a Game of Thrones, You Win or You Die – Cersei Lannister
That’s the most apt summarization of entire Game of Thrones series. Either you win or you die, there’s no middle ground and Cersei sure did convey this to Ned Stark in the best possible way in season one.
9. Shame! Shame! Shame! – Septa Unella
Walk of atonement was probably one of the most embarrassed moment of Cersei where she walks stripped of all her clothes in broad daylight through the streets of King’s Landing. And we all knew she wasn’t going to let this go so easily in coming times. Oh by the way, it was her body double in the scene!
8. The Night is Dark and Full of Terrors – Melisandre
Melisandre, the red woman is full of mystery and imagination. She is well-versed in blood magic which is difficult to comprehend for any common person; that is what makes her enigmatic and mysterious. Her words ‘Night is dark and full of terrors’ surely sends chills down the spine.
7. Things I Do For Love – Jaime Lannister
Love makes people do unimaginable things. Taking it to one step further, Jaime doesn’t even hesitate to throw little Bran off the tower to conceal their ‘secret’. In spite of Catelyn warning Bran, he still goes off climbing and ends up being crippled. So the bottom line is – always listen to Mom.
6. Never Forget What You Are – Tyrion Lannister
Tyrion is undoubtedly the only Lannister that everyone loves. He is witty, intelligent, humorous and well-read. The words of wisdom by Tyrion to Jon not just stands true in GOT world but even in the real world.
5. The Lannisters Send Their Regards – Roose Bolton
If there is one episode which any GOT fan hasn’t forgotten till date, is ‘Red Wedding’. The episode was quite the anticlimax when King Robb, his wife, Queen Talisa, his mother, Lady Catelyn, and most of his bannermen were murdered. Towards the end, Lord Roose Bolton conveys Lannister’s regard to Robb Stark as he drives a dagger through his heart.
4. Hodor – Hodor
‘Hold the door….hold the door….hol t dor…hodor…hodor !!!’
Who would’ve thought that ‘Hodor’, the only word which sweet giant could speak held such deep meaning. The scene where Hodor holds the door singlehandedly, to prevent the white walkers to enter the other side of the cave, was probably one of the most emotional scene of the entire season, if not series. Credit also goes to the young actor, Sam Coleman, who played the young Hodor for delivering such seamless transition of ‘Hold the door’ to ‘Hodor’.
3. Valar Morghulis – Arya Stark
The literal meaning of ‘Valar Morghulis‘ is “All men must die”. It is a Braavosi greeting said in High Valyrian. Also, the traditional response to the greeting ‘Valar Morghulis‘ is ‘Valar dohaeris‘ that means “all men must serve”.
2. Winter is Coming – Ned Stark
This is probably the most common phrase among northerners. We have heard this multiple times by various characters in different seasons while it was first uttered by Ned Stark in season 1.
1. You Know Nothing, Jon Snow – Ygritte
So, if there is one thing which Ygritte, the love interest of Jon, keeps reminding him is that he knows nothing!! By the way, do you know how many times Ygritte has used this line throughout the series? Well, it’s Nineteen.
