“You weren’t Renly’s type, I’m afraid. He preferred curly-haired little girls like Loras Tyrell. You’re far too much man for him. It’s all true about Renly. His proclivities were the worst-kept secret at court. It’s a shame the throne isn’t made out of cocks, they’d have never got him off it.”

“We all dream of things we cannot have. Tywin dreamed that his son would be a great knight, that his daughter would be a queen. He dreamed they would be so strong and brave and beautiful that no one would ever laugh at them.”
“I am a knight,” he told her, “and Cersei is a queen.”
A tear rolled down her cheek. The woman raised her hood again and turned her back on him. Jaime called after her, but already she was moving away, her skirt whispering lullabies as it brushed across the floor. Don’t leave me, he wanted to call, but of course she’d left them long ago.

“Jaime,” she said, tugging on his ear, “sweetling, I have known you since you were a babe at Joanna’s breast. You smile like Gerion, fight like Tyg, and there’s some of Kevan in you, else you would not wear that cloak…but Tyrion is Tywin’s son, not you. I said so once to your father’s face, and he would not speak to me for half a year. Men are such thundering great fools. Even the sort who come along once in a thousand years.”

A moment of silence for Cleos Frey/Alton Lannister.
I sort of liked his character in the books, and it made me sad when he died, and I liked him even more in the show, and then Jaime decided to beat his adorable little ex-squire to death with his chains, before killing the poor Karstark boy. But I still like Jaime. I really, really like all the Lannisters; they are such interesting, ultimately tragic, characters. But come on Jaime, that kid was half in love with you, he would have died for you anyway. That was a bad way to go. I was hoping to see more of him.

"Why is it that no one names Robert oathbreaker? He tore the realm apart, yet I am the one with shit for honor."
