Game of Thrones season 4, in quotes

First, my top 10 quotes for season 4, then a list of all notable quotes (it's not too long!).

1. TYRION LANNISTER - During Tyrion's trial, Tywin asks Trion if he wishes to confess: 
“Nothing but this: I did not do it. I did not kill Joffrey but I wish that I had! Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores! I wish I was monster you think I am. I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you. I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it. ... I will not give my life for Joffrey's murder and I know I'll get no justice here. So I will let the Gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat!”

2. GREY WORM “If the masters never cut me, I never am Unsullied, I never stand in the Plaza of Pride when Daenerys Stormborn orders us to kill the masters. I never am chosen to lead the unsullied, I never meet Missandei from the island of Naath”.


4. CERSEI LANNISTER, QUEEN REGENT “I love my brother…I love my lover…people will whisper and tell jokes, let them, they’re so small I don’t even see them. I only see what matters.”

5. STANNIS, HOUSE BARATHEON "If I do not press my claim, my claim will be forgotten. I will not become a page in someone else's history book."

6. DAENERYS 'STORMBORN' TARGARYEN “I will not let those I have freed slide back into chains”


8. GRENN ET AL, PLEDGE OF THE NIGHT'S WATCH “Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands and father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honour to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.”

9. SER ALLISER THORNE, LORD COMMANDER OF THE NIGHT'S WATCH "Tonight we fight. And when the sun rises, I promise you, Castle Black will stand! The Night's Watch will stand!"

10. CERSEI LANNISTER, QUEEN REGENT “Your legacy is a lie”
